The ancient Greeks developed their own system of water-based therapies which used the healing elements and properties from the Mediterranean
Sea, titled Thalassotherapy. Thalasso, meaning "sea" in Greek was used to revitalize, rejuvenate and refresh the mind, body and soul. Breathing in
the healing sea air, rich in negative ions and sea minerals, aids in this revitalizing and healing process. Walking on the edge of the ocean as well as in
the water allows for the inhalation of sea minerals such as sodium, magnesium, chloride and sulphate which are then absorbed through the lungs and
directly into the blood stream.
Sodium, the main positive ion found in sea water, is also found in extra-cellular fluids in our bodies. These fluids, such as blood plasma, bathe cells
and carry out important transport functions for nutrients and waste. Positive magnesium ions are also used by the body and are an ingredient of some
medicines like Epsom salts, which are commonly used to treat aches and pains. Negative chloride ions also play an important physiological role in the
central nervous system and in transporting protein around the body. The effect of Thalassotherapy can be profound. Thalassotherapy has a beneficial
effect on the skin, cellular exchange, respiratory system and the whole body as there will be increased oxygenation, elimination of toxins and a
revitalization of the mind and body.
