The word Thalasso comes from the Greek Thalassa meaning the sea or energy from the sea and these days Thalasso Spa is the therapeutic use of seawater. Thalasso treatments use seaweed, seasalt and ocean water which allows the absorption of important vitamins and minerals to help balance the mind and body.
The idea of a Thalasso treatment is that sea water has strong healing properties, in tests algae and sea weeds have proven to have powerful natural antiseptic and antibiotic properties, and possess a large range of vitamins, calcium, iron, proteins and minerals.
Since Roman times the benefits of bathing in mineral or thermal waters where known and were used to treat medical complaints. In Thalasso Spas thermal water is used for baths, showers and inhalations in combination with relaxing, beauty treatments, all for our general well-being and to ease aches and pains.
Seawater has beneficial effects upon our pores and is applied as either marine mud, algae paste, inhalation or by showering. Thalasso therapy is a natural way to help you regain inner unity and harmony.
