Reader feedback: Visiting a spa helps

Re: Goodbye ailments: Slovak spas possess the power of healing, Volume 11, Number 18, May 9 - May 15, 2005

The chemical content of spa water is a contributing factor in healing but the biggest contributing factor is massage therapy, exercise, and diet.

If you go somewhere to do nothing except concentrate on your health, whether it is recovery from a sports injury, a car accident, or just stress, a spa will help you.

For example, someone who works in a factory and gets repetitive stress syndrome, or has a bad boss and gets so stressed out that it shows up in physical symptoms which doctors cannot pinpoint the cause of or cure with a pill - a visit to a spa is almost certain to help.

Spa treatment deals with the psychological as well, because you are going away to a place where trained professionals will take care of you.

People always leave feeling better and who knows if it is the sulphur or what that helps.
