Thalassotherapy in Provence

Enjoy a thalasso in Provence

The Provence Alpes Côte d'Azur region has 11 thalassotherapy centres, all located in seaside towns. You can combine fitness, wellbeing and seaside tourism with all the pleasures of the coast and the beach.

Thalasso is a combination of hydrotherapy treatments (whirlpool or hydromassage bath, jet shower, etc.) combining the benefits of seawater and marine products with massages (seaweed or marine mud wraps, affusion massages and modelling, etc.) Thalasso centres offer weekly, weekend or daily packages for fitness and wellness breaks, anti-stress, slimming and post-natal treatments...

Treatments usually take place over half a day, with 4 or 5 treatments a day depending on the treatment and the centre.

Treatments :

- individual marine hydrotherapy treatments :

seaweed or sea mud wrap, hydromassage or bubble bath, jet shower, hydrojet, seawater ramp massage (affusion modelling)...

- individual "dry" treatments :

essential oil massage, pressotherapy, hydrojet, foot reflexology, cryotherapy......

- Group treatments in the pool or indoors:

stretching, aquagym, underwater jet, kine-balneo, back gym, relaxation therapy...

- A la carte treatments at extra charge :
