The therapeutic benefits have been known since ancient Greece. physically and mentally bathing in the sea. precisely, the Thalassotherapy (thalassa means sea in Greek) is a method of therapy [1] that is based on the use of different marine environments [2], together or separately (seawater [3], algae [4], mud [5] and other substances extracted from the sea) and the marine climate as a therapeutic agent.

But let’s do a quick review of the benefits of the sea

If you take a good bath in the sea, you will increase your defenses and It will improve your well-being, you will reduce the level of stress and the mental exhaustion because, the negative ions of the sea air (these negative ions are also found in the mountains), favor the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that is activated as a natural “antidepressant”.

We will be even more beautiful inside and out. Yes, yes, all these benefits are also internal,they will transfer to our skin. The minerals that the water contains sea, salt, sulfur, iodine,… exert a draining effect and disinfectant on skin impurities. The sea breeze and the sun will help us to dry it and regenerate it so we will be more radiant.

Also if you have breathing problems such as sinusitis, marine environment exerts a very beneficial effect by the action of the moisture, which fluidizes the secretions.

What minerals do we find in the sea?

  • Sodium, responsible for its salty taste and regulator of liquids bodily;
  • Potassium, essential to maintain heart and muscle tone;
  • Iodine, which acts on the thyroid gland and has great power on disinfecting our skin;
  • Magnesium, which enhances the immune system and is an element important against aging;
