Thalassotherapy in Portugal is a natural treatment derived from an ancient belief in the healing properties of seawater. It is based on systematic therapeutic use of the ocean, its shore climate, and marine products like algae, seaweed, and alluvial mud.
The origins of thalassotherapy, hydrotherapy, thermal baths and related treatments can be traced back to remote antiquity. Romans, specifically, were firm believers in the virtues of healing power of water. Though, the word “Thalassotherapy” itself was coined in 19th Century France from the Greek “thalassa” meaning sea and “therapeia” meaning healing.
Today, thalassotherapy in Portugal is used as an alternative treatment for medical conditions and has become a popular tourist attraction for relaxation and stress reduction. Increasingly, people are turning to thalassotherapy for its anti-aging treatments and for cellulite reduction. The causes of cellulite are generally attributed to poor blood circulation and a build-up of toxins, so an overall thalassotherapy treatment can release these agents and help to maintain healthy energetic and mineral circulation in the body while providing numerous other benefits as well.
The main objective of thalassotherapy in Portugal is to increase blood circulation that is reduced by the depletion of vital minerals caused by poor nutrition, stress and pollution. The repeated exposure to sea air and immersion in warm seawater, mud, clay, and protein-rich algae helps restore that body’s natural chemical balance. Since the chemical consistence of seawater is so similar to that of human plasma, immersions in water when heated to body temperature results in trace minerals and ions such as magnesium, potassium, calcium sulphates, sodium and iodide to be absorbed directly by the skin. This not only increases blood circulation and relaxes the body, but has as well beneficial effects upon the pores of the skin such as toning and moisturizing.
The thalassotherapy in Portugal is applied in various forms, as either showers of warmed seawater, application of marine mud or of algae paste, or the inhalation of sea fog. Some of our treatments we do directly on the best beaches in Portugal, while for others we use spas with hot seawater, mud massages and seaweed wrapping services.
