Thalasso: A Sea of Sensations!

Palma de Mallorca, Spain, 14th of October 2010

Thalasso, originally a French treatment method, is gaining popularity in Spain. An increasing number of Thalasso Spas and resorts of high quality is opening their doors as a result of the increasing demand for health and relaxation holidays. Thanks to Spain´s large coastal areas and the mild and warm climate throughout the year, Spain is a perfect Thalasso destination!

Huge amounts of tourists come to Spain every year to enjoy sun, sand and the clear blue Mediterranean Sea. However, most people are not aware that the sea offers much more than a cooling swim at a hot beach’¦. Allow us to introduce you to the concept of Thalasso and next time you are at the beach, you might look differently at the sea!

The word Thalasso therapy originates from the Greek ‘Thalassa’ (= sea) and ‘therapeia’ (= treat) and defines the therapeutic use of seawater and its components. Thalasso therapy uses all the ingredients provided by the sea, such as sea water, sea weed, mud and algae in favor of our human wellbeing.

Real Thalasso Spas are situated within 1 kilometer from the sea. If they are located further away, the water is not pumped directly from the sea. In those cases, salted water will be used, which has not the same effect as pure seawater. A visit to a Thalasso centre can do wonders. Pure seawater is the most complete and best moisturizing nutrient from nature.

The power of a Thalasso cure lies in the natural and chemical similarity of sea water com­pared to the human blood plasma. Sea water has strong healing properties and prevents possible illnesses. In scientific medical tests algae and sea weeds have proven to have powerful antiseptic and antibiotic properties, all purely natural, and they possess a diverse range of vitamins, calcium, iron, protein, minerals, etc.

Thalasso therapy works for anti-stress, weight loss, cellulite reduction, post-natal toning, back problems, blood circulation problems and joint pains. In fact you can go to a Thalasso centre for almost everything! Typical Thalasso treatments are: algae baths, algae wraps, sea water shower massages, jet showers, hydro massage, steam baths, etc. For an optimal effect, the seawater should be heated.

One of the Spanish Thalassos we would like to highlight is located in southern Spain, on the Costa del Sol and close to Marbella. Selenza Thalasso & Spa in Estepona with her innova­tive and pioneering techniques, treatments and equipment, is a benchmark for tourism in the field of health and wellbeing in Spain. With over 2,000 m2 it is the largest sea water Spa of Andalusia.

Here you can experience many different types of Thalasso treatments, all tailored to your individual needs. Since Thalasso treatments enhance much more than the normal Spa treatments, they are always carried out under the supervision of a medical team. At the beginning of the cure you have a consult with a doctor, in which you discuss your personal goals to establish your personal treatment program. This assures the treatment program is safe and healthy and in accordance with your needs, so you can fully enjoy the wonderful
treatments without any worry.

The Selenza Hotel Thalasso & Spa is a pioneer in the field of Thalasso therapy and has
designed a new and unique wellness concept; an ¨ALL INCLUSIVE¨ Spa program, which means that you can select whatever you like from the Thalasso treatments menu and as often as you like it, all for a very attractive price!

After a week of relaxation, in which you have experienced all the amazing benefits of the sea, you will feel reborn. A Thalasso cure is a real treat and is good for you at the same time!
