Cradle of life

That is what seawater is called. After all, its composition is ideal for both man and other living beings living in the depths of the seas and oceans. Back in the 19th century, doctors discovered the incredible similarity of this fluid with the plasma of human blood.

Today in the world there are about 100 hotels where thalasso procedures can offer tourists. But it is worth being very attentive, because there are standards for this type of alternative therapy. Therefore, the level and quality of services must strictly comply with them.
