Are SPA Resorts Safe?
Overall SPA Resorts are safe and offer visitors an agreeable experience. However, hundreds of people have been stricken with Legionnaires' disease. This is a potentially deadly pneumonia disease, which has been traced to heated spa whirlpool baths. Similar situations have occurred in communal pools, saunas and other water-related spa treatments.
Fact: This is not the only germ that can be hosted in the water, other harmful and potentially deadly bacteria can thrive in these conditions.
In addition to potential diseases that can be located in water, spa user who seek relief for skin problems can actually can put themselves in deadly risks. Dermatologist Ellen Marmur, MD, says, “Any break in the skin can increase the risk of germ transmission from surface areas like tables, baths, and even hot rocks or other items placed on the surface of the body during treatment”.
