Wellness comes from the sea
SEAWATER AQUATONIC COURSE & KNEIPP
There is a seawater pool course heated to 32°C, consisting of massage jets, combined with a cold seawater Kneipp course over smooth cobblestones. Alternating hot and cold water reduces stress and stimulates both body and mind. This therapy improves blood circulation by reducing swelling and the sense of heaviness.
The pressure of the water massage stimulates the production of endorphins that generate an effect of pleasure and relaxation. Bathing in warm seawater helps to reconcile sleep, relaxes muscles and joints, stimulates blood circulation, fights cellulite and promotes the drainage of liquids in tissues.
