Thalassotheraphy comes from the Greek word thalassa – meaning “sea” and it the medical use of seawater as a form or theraphy, along with other sea products – SEAWEED!!
History of Thalassotheraphy
Wikipedia states that claims have been made about Thalassotherapy being developed in the seaside towns of Brittany, France in the 19th Century. Other claims make the practice older than this : “The origins of thermal baths and related treatments can be traced back to remote antiquity. Romans were firm believers in the virtues of thermalism and thalassotherapy.” (Charlier, Roger H. and Marie Claire P. Chaineaux “The Healing Sea: A Sustainable Coastal Ocean Resource : Thalassotherapy”. Journal of Coastal Research)
