Thalassotherapy (from the Greek “ thalassa ”, sea) is an ancient and effective method of relaxation based on the use of all marine resources: sea water, climate, seaweed, sea mud and sand. Sea water contains a variety of minerals, salts and other oligoelements fundamental for the human organism to function and generate beneficial anti-stress, relaxing and revitalizing effects.
Ancient civilizations like those of the Egyptians, Greeks and the Romans where aware of the sea's healing properties long before the development of the modern hydrothermal science and techniques now available at the Tombolo Thalasso Resort. Sea water contains sodium chloride and is also rich in other minerals like iodine, iron, magnesium, copper, phosphorus, sulphur and potassium.
The pureness of the sea water on this part of the Tuscan coast, awarded the European “Blue Flag”, is an extraordinary natural resource which our Center exploits to bring health and relaxation to its Guests.
The similarity between the chemical composition of sea water and that of the human body makes these elements vital to our well-being. Given the right conditions of temperature and humidity, as in our thalasso center, the human skin becomes highly osmotic and permits the interaction between sea water and plasma letting these minerals pass through the skin and reach the blood cells.
The waves diffuse marine minerals, salts and ions into the air, which combined with a correct exposure to the sun, improve the body's metabolism and respiratory processes. Seaweed used in thalassotherapic treatments have hydrating and re-mineralizing effects and are particularly useful in anti-cellulite treatments and facial masks. Lastly, sea mud, which is a concentration of marine flora and fauna residues, is used in thalassotherapic baths and wraps or heated and applied directly to the skin to sooth pain of the muscles or the articulations.
Furthermore, ongoing research has found other areas where Thalassotherapy is helpful such as: to increase the activity and effectiveness of the immune system; to recover a low responsiveness of hypothalamic-adrenal endocrine system; to improve sleep quality; and to fight localized inflammation of tendons, muscles and nerves.
