Thalassotherapy at Acquaforte Thalasso Spa
Detox, regenerate, enhance
Acquaforte Thalasso Spa thalassotherapy is based on the revolutionary principle of sea water at different temperatures and different saline densities.
Set in a wonderful garden, the thalassotherapy course consists of six pure Sardinian sea water pools, with water drawn from just over a hundred metres from the shoreline at a depth of ten metres.
The first three pools – at a high temperature and with a high saline concentration – have an extraordinary detox effect. The final three – with a lower saline concentration and at lower temperatures – round off the regenerating programme, stabilising the exchanges between the body and the mineral salts.
1st sea oil or brine pool
Draining, muscle-relaxing and energising action
The very high concentration of magnesium salt allows the body to float, performing a draining and anti-inflammatory action and delightfully relaxing the muscles. The high temperature of the water has a vasodilatory effect, and when combined with the high saline density, it increases metabolic exchanges by osmosis, thereby aiding the draining and detox effect.
2nd sea oil, or brine, pool with aloe and mint
Temperature: 37°- 38°
Action that stimulates the production of endorphins
In this pool, thalassotherapy and phytotherapy join forces: sea oil is mixed with refreshing mint and aloe vera, appreciated for centuries for its therapeutic properties for the skin. The combination of phytotherapeutic elements and magnesium salt provides extraordinary results in terms of skin pathologies (psoriasis). The first and second pools also have a stimulating and gratifying effect, thanks to the production of endorphins.
3rd high saline density pool
Action complementing the exchanges between the sea and body
Thanks to osmosis, a dip in this sodium-rich pool continues and increases the exchanges between the sea water and the body, stimulating the elimination of toxins, introducing sea salt that is full of minerals, and continuing the relaxation of the muscles. Furthermore, the high temperature of the water generates extraordinary mental and physical relaxation and transforms the pool into a place of silent enchantment, where you can discover all the wellbeing of one of the most original and exclusive Acquaforte Thalasso&Spa massages.
