The sea.......all of the sea, breeze, sun, light.....blue......
During centuries the Greeks as well as the Romans knew the beneficial effects of the sea water. Nevertheless the word "Thalassotherapy" which comes from the greek word thalasso = sea, and therapy = therapy or cure won´t be used untill halfway through the XIX century by french doctors.
The hotel Termas Marinas El Palasiet began its activity as a Talasotherapy center in 1970. Since then it has maintained the six basic principles of this discipline: immediate proximity to the sea (what allows the direct extraction and maximum usage of the marine environment attributes), use of natural sea water without chemical treatments, medical supervision, appropriate technical installations, qualified personel and hygenic conditions.
Thalassotherapy is a global technique that contributes to reduce pain in a general sense and provides a considerable improvement in a high number of pathologies, leading to a significant decrease in medicine consumption and shortening the recovery time in certain illnesses.
On the one hand, it is especially recommended for all those medical problems, either chronic or just symptomatically painful, related to muscles, joints and blood circulation, from the curative or preventive point of view.
On the other hand, the sea and the marine environment are exceptionally rich in trace elements and mineral salts that contribute effectively to mitigate the lacks of the human organism, through osmotic processes.
