Does salt water spa raise blood pressure level?

default
Posted on Wed, 15 Oct 2014
Question: We just purchased a salt water theraputic spa. We were told by some friends that having this salt water spa will raise our blood pressure. I have done a lot of reading and basically the small amt used is not going to effect blood pressure and is not absorbed thru the skin (from what I've read)

What's your take on this?
