Climatotherapy, thalassotherapy and hydrotherapy

They give the best results in the treatment of diseases and ailments of the respiratory system and locomotor system. 

Thalassotherapy is the application of physical and chemical factors of the sea and the coast in treatment and rehabilitation. We all know that we always come back from the sea in full force, fresh and "charged batteries". Thus, seawater treatment can be effective in the treatment but also in the prevention of a number of diseases. Thalassotherapy has a complex beneficial effect on the human body. Fresh seawater stimulates the exchange of minerals and toxins between the body and water. At the same time, the sea is extremely rich in minerals and living organisms, which is why it is so unique. Nowadays, we are almost used to the fact that everything natural can be replaced, that is, artificially produced. But this is not the case when it comes to the sea.

It is considered one of the healthiest climates on Earth. Staying in the Mediterranean areas will therefore have a beneficial effect on a number of diseases. Some of them are asthma, obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), bronchitis, pneumonia, tuberculosis, cardiovascular disease and neurological diseases.
