Spa Guidelines

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 

Important Heath Bathing Guidelines

We do not recommend a seaweed bath if you are: in the first trimester of pregnancy; 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 anti-coagulants, antihistamines, narcotics or tranquilisers; or if you are within the second/third trimester of pregnancy.

VOYA Seaweed Baths Treatments

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 3 months: or are currently in the first trimester of pregnancy.

If you have had major surgery within the last 2 years, but are 6 months post-surgery, please call us directly at +353 71 9168686 or email us at reception@voyaseaweedbaths.com to discuss options available to you.

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.

What to Bring

Bathers will be provided with towels within their bathing room, and those availing of a treatment after will be provided with robes and slippers. For bathers, each of our shower enclosures will contain the award-winning VOYA shower product range for your enjoyment. We encourage you to hydrate before, during and after the bath – and we provide fresh filtered water within the bathing rooms for your enjoyment.

Be sure to ask for a complimentary VOYA herbal tea to complete your experience at VOYA Seaweed Baths!
