Nature's contribution to true and whole wellness was entrusted by ancient Greek Goddesses, and is practiced today on the French Riviera...

What is Thalassotherapy?

From the Greek Thalassa meaning “ocean,” true Thalassotherapy includes incorporating healthy marine elements by way of water exercise, ingestion of salty air, absorbing minerals through the pores, and eating healthily. True Thalassotherapy involves the medicinal use of seawater from all sensory facets - it is an experience of true and whole wellness. 

Entering the mainstream: 

French biologist, Rene Quinton suggested that human blood and seawater contained identical nutrient ratios. His introduction contributed to the practice of Thalassotherapy on the coasts of southern France, and the French Riviera's taste for sea-based therapy.  Although many philosophies of this ritual have been tested with loyalty, it is not a scientifically proven practice.

  • Improved Circulation
  • Boosted Immunity
  • Improved Sleep

How does it work?

What services include Thalassotherapy?

Mud baths, hydrotherapy, massage and wraps usually include techniques from this ancient ritual.
