What is Thalassotherapy?
Thalassotherapy is the simultaneous use, under medical supervision and with a preventive or curative purpose, of the benefits of the marine environment, which includes: the marine climate, sea water, marine muds, algae and other substances extracted from the sea.
Hotel Termas Marinas El Palasiet began its activity as a Thalassotherapy Center in 1970, since then it has kept alive the six basic principles of this discipline: immediate proximity to the sea (which allows capturing and using the specific qualities of the marine environment, adapting them to the thalasso), use of natural sea water without chemical treatments, medical supervision of the treatments, adequate technical facilities, qualified staff to prescribe and apply thalassotherapy and the hygiene of the facilities.
Thalassotherapy is a worldwide technique that helps decreasing the pain and improving different pathologies, significantly reducing the consumption of medications and accelerating the convalescence of certain pathologies.
It is especially suitable for muscular and joint ailments, reduce stress or dermatological problems.
With the use of marine thermo-hydrotherapy several effects are intended:
Because of the lack of gravity in the pool, a person’s weight decreases by 90%, i.e. a person weighing 70 kg only weighs 7 kg within a pool, so he or she can move much more easily.
The effect of thermotherapy when hydrotherapy is applied between 36 º and 42 º produces analgesic effects and muscle relaxation.
Sea water is mineral water par excellence, since it contains all the mineral elements, being its composition almost identical to human plasma under different conditions of isotonicity. With all that plus the vasodilatation caused by the bath temperature, a transcutaneous exchange between seawater and the human body takes place, allowing the penetration through the skin of the various minerals and oligoelements seawater contains, like calcium, iodine and magnesium, which is highly beneficial to the body especially in the case of rheumatism, exhaustion, revitalization, and so on.
It consists in the application of a thick layer of mud (marine mud) on certain prescribed areas producing an analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect. It is very effective in reducing pain in rheumatological pathologies, muscular contractures…
