Is a Spa Pool Safe for Your Health?


It is not advisable for pregnant women to take bath in Spa Pool (בריכות ספא). It may injure the unborn baby. Pathogens in the water pose an added danger. Forgoing the delights of a Spa Pool until after giving birth and healing is a wise option many pregnant women take.

Heart Diseases

If the doctor gave you the go-signal to immerse yourself in the water, follow the prescribed duration and temperature, and if you feel anything undesirable or out of the ordinary, get out of the Spa Pool (בריכות ספא) as soon as you can. Do it slowly, carefully. Take a cool shower, taking care that the water you shower with is not cold, and drink some more water.

High Blood Pressure

The relaxation bring by a hot tub bath will be beneficial if you are suffering from high blood pressure. But beware of unwanted reactions if you are taking hypertensive mediations. Again, check with your physician first before taking that dip in a Spa Pool.

Exceeding Time Limits

There’s a limit to how long you, or anyone for that matter, should stay in a steaming tub. No more than twenty minutes inside is a good guideline. Conversing can make some people stay in the water more than is necessary. Getting overheated or dehydrated can be the result.

Besides being a great way to relax, Spa Pools (בריכות ספא) offer therapeutic effects, when done the proper way, which is, with safety in mind. There are times when it should be altogether avoided, even under professional supervision. Otherwise certain precautions should be put into place.
