The term 'thalassotherapy' (using sea water for cosmetic and health treatment) is long lived practice that dates back to the ancient Egyptians. No wonder sea swimming is continually growing around the globe. Whatever the season, sea swimming could be the perfect to rejuvenate your body and mind.

Healing abilities. Chemical elements in the sea water activates the body's healing mechanism and aidvin the healing of diseases such as asthma, bronchitis, arthritis and localized aches and pains.

Swimming in sea water also induces the parasympathetic system responsible for rest and repair to enhance the release of dopamine and serotonin. These are enzymes responsible for keeping us nappy and its low level may lead to depression.

Proper Blood Circulation. Thalassothrapy helps to improve blood circulation by restoring essential enzymes in our body that are reduced by poor diets, stress or environmental pollution.

Improved Immune function. Sea water contains a great amount of mineral, vitamins, amino acid and micro organisms that have antibacterial effects and can work as antibiotics.
