Thalassotherapy is the use of sea water and other elements of the marine environment, such as algae, mud and climate, for therapeutic or preventive purposes, always under medical supervision and applied in facilities suitable for this purpose, by qualified personnel.
The treatments offered by Palasiet achieve muscle relaxation, the anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect that improves muscle and osteo-articular problems and the sedative effect that improves stress situations and favors cell balance, regulating metabolism and maintaining the hydro-mineral balance of our cells. Thus, optimal muscle recovery after physical effort is achieved, dermatological problems also get better and fat loss is encouraged, by increasing basal metabolism.
The aim is to stimulate and stabilize metabolism. For this reason, Palasiet pays special attention to nutrition, to achieve the optimal state for each person, improving their quality of life and achieving healthy habits that last over time.
In their stay, the guest of the Palasiet assumes how important it is for everybody’s health to eat well and to benefit from the effects that a healthy and adequate diet produces on the organism. Palasiet nutrition follows the principles of the Mediterranean diet that represents much more than a simple nutritional guideline and that is, by its very nature, a rich and healthy diet. The products we use are seasonal and proximity, which satisfy the maximum of their properties, looking for a healthy experience while attractive in aroma, flavor and presentation. It is about eating with quality and attractiveness, but always under the parameters of a healthy intake.
If the guest follows a diet plan, the joint work of the chef and the nutrition specialist allows to offer our guests low-calorie menus, adapted to the needs of each guest, necessary to be able to eliminate extra weight without losing gastronomic quality.
The stay in Palasiet is the beginning of a lasting change and our commitment is to provide guests with all the support and tools to continue their transformation process in their daily lives. During the training period, the guest attends conferences, workshops, cooking classes, the preparation of menus and recipes as well as a personalized follow-up that begins once the stay is over and that favors the life change in their usual environment.
The effect of exercise along with diet and other thalassotherapy techniques and medical treatments is of vital importance in all programs.
