  • Thalassotherapy

     

    Thalassotherapy

    The treatments available at a Thalassotherapy Spa are very similar to the Thermal Spa except that the products used are drawn from the sea rather than underground. Algae, mud and sand combined with seawater pumped straight from the sea and heated to 34 degrees are used for therapeutic purposes. Seawater is very rich in minerals and can treat stress and fatigue, promote weight loss and physical wellbeing and is often used to speed convalescence either post-operative or post-natal. The Thalassa Spa at the Anassa Hotel in Cyprus features a host of Thalassotherapy treatments like a seaweed body wrap or the high power Thalasso Jet Shower Treatment.

    Thalassotherapy at the Thalassa Spa at the Anassa, Cyprus
    The concept for the spa involves a holistic approach to wellbeing, and the result is an entirely newly-designed spa, offering The Organic Pharmacy’s 100% natural product line, complemented by an expanded Thalasso programme, holistic and therapeutic lifestyle consulting, acupuncture, spa cuisine and natural treatments using local produce.
    Thalassa Spa is an experiential spa that embraces all aspects of wellbeing, offering guests the option of indulging in a one-off treatment, or immersing themselves in 4-10 day retreats or detoxifying programmes. The aim is to provide guests with tailored therapies specific to their individual needs as well as to re-educate them on lifestyle techniques, such as nutrition, which can be worked into their daily lives at home.
    This Roman-style thalassotherapy health spa is a retreat in the truest sense. Its light, tranquil space is lavishly equipped with saunas, steam baths, a seawater exercise pool, squash court and fitness room, and at its heart is a stunning indoor heated swimming pool flanked by custom-designed lounge furniture. Its philosophy embraces the restorative and rejuvenating qualities of the sea and offers a wide range of revitalising body and beauty treatments, including thalassotherapy, algae wraps, massages, reflexology, and aromatherapy, plus all the standard beauty treatments.

    Thalassotherapy at the Selenza-Thalasso-Wellness Centre at the Selenza, Estepona, Spain
    The Selenza-Thalasso-Wellness Centre is a 2000 square metre complex, an innovative retreat offering thalassotherapy in its purest form, where the water comes directly from the Mediterranean without artificial treatment or storage, using all the natural vitamins, calcium, iron, proteins and minerals that its algae contain. The architecture is avant-garde and the bright, spacious treatment areas are intended to create a seafaring atmosphere.
    The centre occupies two floors divided into four separate areas. The leisure area is equipped with three seawater pools, hammam, sauna and Kneipp circuit. The Wet Area draws on the healing powers of the sea and is equipped with a number of innovative technologies, including the 'La Siesta' bath, the only one of its kind in Spain. The Dry Area offers manual therapies and modern equipment for relaxing and firming aesthetic therapies, and the Beauty and Aesthetics area offers a broad range of high quality cosmetic and anti-ageing products.
    The centre works in conjunction with the Teknon Clinic in Barcelona and Instituto de Medicina Estética headed by Dr. Vila-Rovira. Treatments may be supplemented with the 'Transformation' anti-ageing programme and Alcat-test methods.

    'La Siesta' Bath

The treatment also includes a four-hand manual massage and finishes with an extraordinary relaxation system comprising a floating and weightless sensation and vibrotherapy with music transmitted through a system known as the Thermo-Spa Concerto.

    Thalassotherapy at the Capri Beauty Farm, Capri Palace, Capri, Italy
    The Capri Beauty Farm is a fully-equipped spa run by professionally trained medical and beauty care staff offering a range of personalised and innovative treatments. Thalassotherapy draws on the healing power of seawater and marine products that are rich in vitamins and minerals and is available in a scrub or in a Turkish bath. The wine hydromassage is an individual treatment session in water enriched with grape extracts and has an antioxidant effect on the body. A variety of massages and body peels are also available.
    The Hydrofor treatment is the latest cure for protecting your body’s shape by treating a range of problems, for example, cellulite, wrinkles and stretch marks. A programme tailored at young girls aged 8 to 16 gives them their first spa experience and involves therapies such as the chocolate hair clay treatment and water aerobics. The ‘twin’ spa treatments allow friends to be pampered in the same room or offers a romantic treat for couples.

    Thalassotherapy at the Masseria San Domenico, Puglia
    The hotel specialises in Thalassotherapy, a therapeutic spa system where mineral-rich seawater and marine by-products such as seaweed and algae are employed in body wraps, baths and seawater jet showers. The Masseria takes the seawater from a deep underground reservoir that is fed from the Adriatic Sea, just 500 metres away. The waters of the Adriatic are rich in potassium and magnesium which are extremely beneficial in treating a variety of ailments such as poor circulation and contributes to healthy glowing, cleansed skin.
    The Masseria uses products such as Thalgo and La Prairie in its treatments, as well as its own unique range made out of the Masseria’s own olive oil. The beneficial and anti-ageing properties of olive oil have been widely celebrated for a number of years and at the Masseria you can experience their own olive oil facial designed to promote a youthful complexion. A complete range of facial treatments is available utilising the renowned La Prairie products, such as the Rejuvenating Facial or Anti-stress/anti-fatigue Facial.
