The Marine Experience
THE KNEIPP AND SEAWATER AQUATONIC COURSE
A course through a heated seawater pool (32° C), consisting of massaging jets, combined with a kneipp pebble path in cold seawater. Alternating hot and cold water reduces stress and stimulates the body and mind. This therapy improves blood circulation, reducing swelling and the sense of heaviness. It is especially recommended after a long walk, sunbathing or after an exhausting exercise session.
The pressure of the water massage stimulates the production of endorphins, which generate an effect of pleasure and relaxation. Bathing in hot seawater helps to facilitate sleep, relax muscles and joints, stimulate blood circulation and tackle cellulite, encouraging lymphatic drainage in tissues.
The hydro-therapist uses a powerful water jet, regulating the pressure in order to perform the treatment at a distance of 3 to 5 meters. It is suitable for cases of muscular tension, lumbago and circulatory deficiencies. It decongests areas of fat and cellulite.
Gentle hot seawater spray jets reactivate the lymphatic system and blood circulation. The benefits of this treatment concern the respiratory system, as the steam produced by hot seawater reaches the lungs and the respiratory tract (marine aerosol).
