Holistic Benefits of Sea salt and Seaweed soaks

Known as thalassotherapy (derived from the Greek word "Thalassa", referring to the "sea" or "ocean", and the word "Therapeia" meaning "a service" or "an attendance"), the idea of using seaweed and sea water for health and wellness dates back to ancient times.

People have long known of the benefits of bathing in the sea. Long before saunas and bathtubs, those looking for therapy and rejuvenation took to the ocean.

Soldiers in the Roman Empire, for instance, would head to hot seawater baths to recuperate after battles.

Seaweed baths have been a feature of Irish seaside towns. Today, a few seaweed bathhouses, remain popular sites known for their restorative properties.

While a bath in hot water itself is good for your muscles and bones, seaweed and seawater baths are used as replenishing mineral soaks, traditionally considered a common and effective therapy for improving circulation, softening skin, easing muscle cramps, stimulating the lymphatic system, stress relief, and much more.

Seaweed is rich with minerals, sea plants such as Irish moss, Bladderwrack, and Kelp contain minerals that are absorbed into the body through the bath, resulting in a comforting and recuperative experience.

Soaking in the mineral-rich water of a seaweed bath will calm your mind, relax your body, and help you feel years younger.

A seaweed bath will aid to replenish your body, relieve stress, soothe aching muscles, may aid to alleviate circulatory problems and skin conditions, soften your skin, and much more. It is a holistic experience that can improve your overall health and well-being.
