Thalassotherapy is the therapeutic use of the seawater and marine products like algae, seaweed, and marine mud. The name comes from the Greek words thalassa (“the sea”) and therapia (“treat”), created by Frenchman Jacques de la Bonnardière in 1876.
The principle behind thalassotherapy is that repeated immersion in warm seawater, marine mud, and protein-rich algae helps restore the body’s natural chemical balance. Seawater and human plasma are very similar in terms of mineral content. When immersed in warm seawater, the body absorbs the minerals it needs — trace elements of magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium and iodide — through the skin.
The curative qualities of thalassotherapy can help with all manner of aches, pains and ailments. Chronic fatigue, back pain, stiff joints…targeted treatments get to work to prevent and relieve common afflictions. A few days in the sanctuary of a thalasso will have you feeling full of health and vitality in no time.
Rheumatism or Rheumatoid Arthritis
This is the aching commonly found in joints, such as hips, knees, spine etc. Seawater provides cartilage with the minerals or nutrients that are missing such as sulphur and iodine.
Pain Relief (Back Ache and Arthritis)
Thalasso bath is helping better movement of the joints (a gain of 15 o of mobilisation). The muscular hydro massage added to the absorption of the nutrients and minerals will provide pain relief.
After surgery, when you could be in bed for up to 15 days, you may feel week and tired. A Thalasso stay will bring back all the minerals to the bones and muscles and also help with early rehabilitation.
As the body is ten times lighter in the sea water it can allow one to gain two months in healing time for fractures and prevents all the problems given by immobilisation such as swelling and fatigue.
Athletes and Sports Professionals
Bringing to the body the necessary nutrients and minerals to re-energise and easing movement as well as releasing muscular spasm, Thalasso will increase the performance of any sportsperson. Thalassotherapy will also be useful for rehabilitation of some specific sports injuries.
Thalassotherapy helps your body to revitalise in a marine environment and will help to reduce the ageing process. Between the ages of 50 and 60 years old, most people lose the habit of exercise which results in them feeling tired and disinterested in exercise. Thalassotherapy can help to reinvigorate a person due to the nutrients, minerals and weightlessness.

Improvements in the thyroid function means that your metabolism increases and helps with the breakdown of fat, as well as this Thalasso reduces oedema and eliminates toxins and so can help you to regain your muscle tone.
