Rotorua’s Spa at QE the ideal place to heal and relax

Rotorua’s Spa at QE the ideal place to heal and relax

THE SPA at QE in Rotorua is a health spa offering a range of thermal treatments which are ideal for healing the body and relaxation.

Rotorua is a world-renowned geothermal hotspot and has unique qualities that separate it from other cities of its kind.

The Spa at QE taps into those natural resources to provide a number of therapeutic treatments which have great healing properties and leave people feeling revitalised.

The alkaline and sulphurous mineral water from the Rachel Pool is renowned for its softening effects on the skin and relaxing properties. It is a wonderful standalone treatment or as a precursor to massage and leaves your muscles relaxed and warmed through.

Spa at QE runs two Rachel Pools: one hot (40 degrees Celsius) and the other tepid (35 degrees Celsius).

A Wax Bath – which sees hands and feet dipped in heated paraffin wax several times to form a thick layer of warmth and then wrapped to ensure the full benefit of that heat – is great for those who suffer from conditions such as arthritis, tendonitis and Occupational Overuse Syndrome (OOS).

The Wax Bath is also ideal for people who have aching joints or fatigued muscles following sporting injuries or cast removal.

The Rotorua region’s volcanic mud is rich in minerals. Because of this, it means it stores heat easily when warmed, making it perfect for heat treatments.

The Spa at QE offers its clients four mud-based treatments: Mud Bath, Mud Pack, Mud Facial and Mud Wrap.

The Mud Bath is individually prepared for each client and contains liquid thermal mud mixed with mineral water from the Rachel Pool. A 20-30-minute soak in our bath detoxifies and nourishes skin, invigorates circulation and provides relief from aches and pains.

It is soothing to the skin and has also been found to benefit skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.

The Mud Pack involves concentrated heat applied to particular areas of the body, such as the neck and shoulders or lower back, and results in increased circulation and a high level of relaxation. The thermal mud is wrapped into a hot pack and applied to these areas.

The Mud Facial is a deep-cleansing treatment which uses mineral-rich Rotorua volcanic mud, while the Mud Wrap uses refined mud applied over the entire body.

Both treatments refresh the senses and do wonders for your skin.

Next time you head to Rotorua, Spa at QE is well worth a visit. It is a place that embraces the essence of Rotorua while offering all the thermal treatments you require to heal and revitalise your body.
