When we finally manage to take time out from the hustle and bustle of daily life and retreat to the spa for some well-earned recuperation, it’s a time to relax and rejuvenate, yet unfortunately spa incidents do occur.
Of course, slips, trips and falls are common spa incidents, given the typical tired flooring,
water, oils and hired footwear, but there are other spa accidents to be aware of to help minimise the risk of experiencing spa-related injuries and illnesses.
What are the common spa incidents?
Beyond slips and falls in the health spa, what are the other common spa incidents to be aware of? Some of the most frequently experienced spa incidents include, but are not limited to:
- Muscle strains due to therapist errors
- Allergic reactions to spa lotions and oils
- Waterborne illnesses caused by unmaintained, unhygienic conditions
- Ailments due to contact with cleaning chemicals
- Dehydration or heatstroke from overheating in saunas
- Anxiety attacks due to humidity in steam rooms
While this isn’t a comprehensive list of spa incidents, just a small example of spa accidents that have been known to occur, it does demonstrate that there are many hazardous elements to your spa experience.
