Thalassotherapy

What is Thalassotherapy?

From the Greek word Thalassa meaning “ocean,” true Thalassotherapy includes incorporating all of the healthy marine elements by way of water exercise, ingestion of salty air, absorbing minerals through the pores, and eating healthily. True Thalassotherapy involves the medical use of seawater from all sensory facets – it is an experience of true and whole wellness.

Entering the mainstream:

French biologist, Rene Quinton suggested that human blood and seawater contained identical nutrient ratios. His introduction contributed to the practice of Thalassotherapy on the coasts of southern France, and the French Riviera’s taste for sea-based therapy. Although many philosophies of this ritual have been tested with loyalty, it is not a scientifically proven practice.
