First La Bonnadiere French physician used consciously the power of the sea for healing purposes. Later on biologists discovered that sea water resembles to the human blood plasma and it is rich in iodine and zinc, which are essential for the body. Algae and micro-algae play an important role in the Thalasso therapy; practically they are the basis of the therapy.
“Micro algaes are the most brilliant creators in the Earth, created by biology.” (Prof. Walter Trosch, Fraunhofer Research Institute)
Algae/micro-algae contain the most vital substances. Its beneficial nutritional effects were acknowledged long time ago.
Algae concentrate the valuable treasures of the sea, magnesium, iron, inc, selenium, iodine, vitamins and amino acids. Algae decrease the body’s cholesterol level, breed probiotic bacteria, have a detoxifying impact, protect from physical exertion, stimulate the immune system, and help to achieve mental balance, strengthen the hair, regenerate the nails and maintain the self-healing power of the body. They are able to multiple/concentre certain ions to ten-hundred thousand fold, namely one kilogram algae contains as much trace elements and mineral substances as ten-hundred thousand litres of sea water.
Already the Antic Greeks were aware of the beneficial effects of the sea. They recognised that bathing in sea water had an extremely beneficial impact on rheumatic diseases and had a relaxing effect on nervous system related illnesses.
Already small amounts of sea water contain high quantities of mineral salts, sodium chloride and trace elements (copper, zinc, selenium and cobalt), which stimulate and strengthen the immune system and have a beneficial effect on the skin and mucosa.

Various parts of the body are treated with algae extracts. As a result of the treatment skin structure is improved, skin surface becomes taut, metabolism is improved, important mineral substances are conveyed to the body and it is also anti-bacterial.
Thalasso mud pack
Sea mud contains mainly vitalising mineral substances, china-clay and aluminium oxide. They have anti-bacterial, cleaning and relaxing effect on the skin. There are three kinds of mud packs: packs supplementing mineral substances, slimming and toning mud packs.
As a result of sea water bath metabolism and detoxification of the body are improved. Due to its high vitamin trace element and mineral substance content it is revitalising, hydrating and detoxifying. The bath improves the oxygen supply of the tissues, loosens up the muscles and has a relaxing effect.
The body is massaged with a hydrating lotion, containing sea water extracts, which turns the skin soft and silky.
During the treatment the body is wrapped in clothes soaked in a liquid containing detoxifying substances. This is a compression wrapping technique with mainly slimming, toning and detoxifying effect. It is also relaxing.
With the help of a special head, compressed air or vacuum aluminium-oxide crystals are streamed over the skin. The crystals grab and remove the devitalised corneum cells. As a result wrinkles are eliminated and the evenness of the skin is significantly improved.
