Healing energy of sea water
The Greeks, Romans and Egyptians themselves talked about the healing properties of sea water and recommended swimming in the sea to strengthen the health of the body and soul. Interesting thalassotherapy offers can be found on the Costa Calida coast, thanks to the local Mar Menor lagoon.
The salt levels in the waters of the Mar Menor are very high; the waters are also rich in magnesium, calcium, sodium, bromine, iodine and fluoride, which are ideal for treating arthritis, rheumatism, tendonitis, osteoporosis, physical and mental exhaustion and many other diseases.
You can’t possibly find a better place to restore the health of your body and soul! We invite you to the Region of Murcia so that you can get to know its thalassotherapy centers! Here you will be offered a wide range of personalized treatments using sea water (hydrotherapy), sea air (aerotherapy) and sunbathing (heliotherapy).
Mud Baths in Mar Menor
Special climatic conditions of Mar Menor, including many sunny days per year and a high saltcontent of the local waters, have led to the deposition of mud in the northern part of the lagoon for centuries, which go excellent with healing procedures.
If you suffer from diseases related to bones and joints, skin pathologies, rheumatism, arthritis or gout, do not hesitate to use the famous Mar Menor muds in the area of the San Pedro del Pinatar salt lagoons! A layer of healing mud applied to the skin will absorb all toxins from the peripheral connective tissue system and remove them from the dermis through the lymphatic system, operating due to the principle of tissue paper. These muds are also used as an anti-inflammatory solution. They are also used for therapeutic and cosmetic treatments in some thalassotherapy centers around Mar Menor.
