For centuries, sea water has been used to treat skin problems, infectious diseases and joint pain, among other ailments. Certain elements in sea water are catalytic activators that create biochemical reactions in your brain as well as your circulatory, muscular and digestive systems.

Sea water contains minerals and nutrients that may contribute to your health, whether you drink it, soak in it or eat products grown from it.

Increased Blood Circulation

Thalassotherapy is a form of treatment and therapy based around the healing properties of sea water. The primary objective of thalassotherapy is to increase blood circulation caused by a depletion of vital minerals. Sea water is rich in the same minerals and trace elements that make up human blood plasma, including magnesium, calcium, sodium and potassium. A thalassotherapy sea water immersion uses heated sea water to open the pores and allow the skin to absorb these minerals and ions, which can increase blood circulation. Side benefits include toned and moisturized skin which may be evident after a thalassotherapy treatment.

Hormonal Balance

Living microorganisms in sea water secrete hormonal, antibiotic and bacteriostatic substances which help with natural hormonal balance. As you bathe in the sea water, the health benefits are absorbed and assimilated by your body and may help correct a natural hormonal imbalance.

Strengthened Immune System

Breathing the gas molecules contained in an ocean mist can strengthen your body's natural immunological defense mechanism. The sea water spray contains negative ions which enter the body through your respiratory system and attach to the walls of your lungs. As you breathe, your body distributes the negative ions. Sea spray is also rich in iodine, which helps to regulate your thyroid gland.

Weight Loss

Body cleansing systems such as the salt water flush and the master cleanse use sea salt as a major element in cleansing the colon. Colon cleaning treatments can facilitate weight loss and overall good health by removing toxins and parasites from your body. A sea salt colon cleanse will also flush out good bacteria from your body, so plan to take a probiotic supplement to replace the good bacteria after a sea salt colon cleanse. Consult your physician before choosing any type of colon cleanse.

Overall Health Benefits

Upscale spas offer sea water treatments to help reduce stress, speed weight loss and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Massages, facials and hydrotherapy treatments are available that may benefit your overall health and well being.
