What is Thalassotherapy? 

Thalassotherapy is the therapeutic use of seawater in the form of marine products like algae, seaweed and marine mud to promote health & wellness.

What does Thalassotherapy mean? 

The name Thalassotherapy comes from the Greek word thalassa ("the sea") and therapia ("treat") - Equithalasso: Thelassotherapy for horses

Where does Thalassotherapy originate from? 

  • The use of heated seawater for therapeutic benefits dates back to the Romans, who also loved soaking in hot minerals springs.
  • Modern thalassotherapy was pioneered in France, which still has more thalassotherapy spas than any other country.
  • 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.
  • When immersed in warm seawater, the body absorbs the minerals it needs -- trace elements of magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium and iodide --through the skin
