Where does it come from?
We discover Thalassa
The word Talassa derives from the Greek Thalassa which means “sea”. Thalasso therapy exploits the beneficial effects of sea water, in particular its salt content, to treat joint and skin diseases. There are many treatments and applications: baths, massages, muds and showers are the best known; the beneficial effects of salt contained in sea water help relieve the symptoms of depressive states, arthropathies, circulatory and respiratory diseases and skin diseases, such as dermatitis and psoriasis. Although its effectiveness is not scientifically proven, thalassotherapy has very distant origins, the Greeks and Romans were already aware of how beneficial the marine climate was for health.
