It is thought that, since ancient times, Greeks, Romans and Egyptians knew the properties of weather and sea water and that they used them for healing purposes.



Today, as in the past, Thalassotherapy uses the high salinity of sea water as an adjuvant for the treatment of various diseases related to, for example:

  • skin diseases such as eczema, psoriasis, erythema, dermatitis; it can also cure skin blemishes such as cellulite.

  • Respiratory System diseases such as sinusitis, colds, bronchitis, catarrhal affections, cough and inflammatory diseases.

  • osteoarticular and muscular pathologies of both rheumatic and traumatic nature.

Due to the presence of salts, sea water has the same density as human plasma and trace elements – also present in water – are easily absorbed by the body through the pores of the skin.

For this reason, the benefits of the treatment are many, as we have seen, but this type of therapy is specially indicated for its stimulating, revitalizing and moisturizing effects, which help restore the balance of our organism.

As a matter of fact, water is one of the fundamental elements of our body: it constitutes about 70% of it. This is the reason why it is important to take care of water reintegration, in order to ensure the proper functioning of the cells, as well as the appearance of our skin.
