Thalassotherapy, from the Greek word for “sea,” makes use of the components of this element of the Earth for medical treatments including weight loss, detoxification, anti-ageing, and regeneration; these components include the seawater itself, mud and silt, algae, and seaweed, as well as coralline minerals.


Aegle Wellness Center-Balesin is the only facility in the Philippines and one of very few in Asia to offer thalassotherapy. Aegle-Balesin’s thalasso treatment facility includes saltwater whirlpools that use specially treated seawater.


Since the chemical make-up of seawater is so similar to that of human blood, immersions in water when heated to body temperature result in trace minerals and ions such as magnesium, potassium, and calcium sulphates being absorbed directly by the skin. This not only increases blood circulation but has beneficial effects for the body and skin, such as muscle toning, muscle pain relief, skin cleansing, overall relaxation, and stress reduction.
