What are Seaweed Baths?
Seaweed Baths are the simplest and purest of our organic treatment processes. Our detoxifying Seaweed Baths use the natural power of organic hand-harvested seaweed and seawater to deeply moisturise your skin, increase circulation and promote healing.
An initial optional steam treatment (3 mins max) will open your pores to the beneficial nutrients contained within our seaweed.
Following this, you will relax in a bath of hot fresh seawater and seaweed, hand-harvested from the unspoilt Atlantic coast of Ireland. After the Bath you can choose to have a cool shower to help close your skin pores or leave all the natural goodness on your skin and simply towel-dry! This entire steam and bathing pampering session will last 50 minutes.
Loose clothing to change into after is advisable.
We do not recommend a seaweed bath if you are: in the first trimester of pregnancy (up to 14 weeks) ; are diabetic; are less than 6 weeks post-surgery; have medical stitches still in place; have a seaweed/iodine allergy; an overactive thyroid gland, a neurological disorder or have been advised by a medical professional to avoid hot water and steam.
We advise bathers to take their bath at a cooler temperature and avoid the steam unit if you: have high/low blood pressure, suffer from any heart-related conditions; are using anticoagulants, antihistamines, narcotics or tranquilisers; or if you are within the second/third trimester of pregnancy.
For all who are availing of treatments you will be asked to complete a treatment consultation form at check-in. Your VOYA Seaweed Baths Therapist will be happy to discuss any queries you have and will adapt your treatment based on your individual needs.
Unfortunately, treatments cannot be carried out if: you have had major surgery within the last 6 months; minor surgery within the last 6 weeks: or are currently in the first trimester of pregnancy (up to 14 weeks).
If you have had major surgery within the last 2 years, but are 6 months post-surgery, please contact us directly at +353 71 9168686 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss options available to you.
If you currently have Lymphoedema we ask that you provide a letter of support from your Medical Practitioner to confirm suitability for the treatment chosen.
With your best interests at heart, and in line with our health and safety regulations, we reserve the right to cancel or change bookings due to contraindications to the scheduled treatment.
