Facials, Body Wraps, and Pamper Treatments

Facialist Kathleen IsonFor centuries, people have turned to the sea for its rejuvenating and healing properties. In 1869 a French doctor coined the term Thalossotherapy to describe the use of seaweed and seawater for therapeutic and preventative measures. Thalassa is the greek word for treatment. The therapy relies on the believe that immersion in and the consumption of sea water, with all its salts and minerals, revitalizes and cleanses the system. In France, Thalossotherapy has always been a treatment of choice for joint troubles and injuries. Today, it is also prescribed for relieving imbalances linked to modern lifestyle. Seawater is in fact, a living entity because of microscopic algae containing all of the oligolements-copper, zinc, iodine, selenium--vitamins, proteins and mineral salts which are indispensable to the human body.
