What does Greece have to offer? Here are some examples:
Did you know that thalasso originated in Greece? The ancient Greek words thalassa (sea) and therapia (treatment) combined to form the popular thalasso therapy. Thalasso makes use of the healing properties of sea water and seaside air to improve your health and wellbeing. The ancient Greeks visited the sea for health and wellbeing purposes as early as the 16th century! Throughout the 1600s and the centuries that followed, numerous kings would travel to Greece to bathe in the seawater to improve their health. A thalasso cure has many benefits: the pores of the skin open up, because seawater and human plasma consist of similar elements. As a result, minerals are readily absorbed into the body. This rebalances the chemicals within the body and stimulates certain processes within the body that bolster immunity against external toxins. Health resorts and spa hotels in Greece have been using these techniques for centuries, making Greece an ideal destination for a thalasso holiday. Keen to try thalasso in Greece?
