Thalassotherapy at Zoëtry Paraiso de la Bonita

By Guest Blogger Zuko Garcia

Thalassotherapy has been used to promote health and wellness since ancient times in Mediterranean civilizations. It is currently a new trend among spa enthusiasts and can be found in high end spas around the world, especially in Europe. This kind of therapy uses therapeutic qualities found in seawater, marine algae, marine mud and salts to prevent and treat a variety of different conditions. 

Zoëtry Paraiso de la Bonita Riviera Maya has the first certified Thalasso Center in North America. Our beautiful 22,000 square foot oceanfront Mexican style Thalasso Center and Spa boasts 16 wet and dry treatment rooms, separate male and female saunas and steam rooms, a fitness center, a mystical Temazcal and a large outdoor therapeutic saltwater pool.

Interesting facts…

Sea water contains more than 75 elements identified as necessary for the human body to function well. Sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, iodine, sulfur, phytoplankton are the most important elements that make salt water so special. These elements help transmit impulses from our nervous system to the body, regulate blood pressure, build resistance to fatigue, strengthen muscle, promote weight loss and more! The right temperature for the elements to be absorbed by the human body is between 34˚C and 37˚C (93 to 98˚F), which is exactly the temperature our thalasso pool is heated to for our guests.

Some of the benefits of thalassotherapy are:

  • Relaxation
  • Stress, Depression and Anxiety

  • Detoxification
  • Weight Loss and Cellulite Reduction
