Hippocrates first used the word “thalassotherapy” to describe the healing effects of saltwater. The ancient Greeks knew all about the health benefits of this mineral-rich water and bathed in man-made pools filled with salty seawater. To name a few, swimming in saltwater can soothe your skin, improve blood flow, and increase functions in your immune system. Get your Greek on in one of three saltwater pools at Navutu Dreams’ wellness retreat in Southeast Asia.
That Beautiful Skin You’re In
Swimming in salt water cleanses our skin. Salt water rejuvenates, exfoliates, and detoxifies skin, the largest organ in the human body. Salt water is also a natural moisturizer, since it increases our skin’s natural ability to retain moisture and promotes cellular regeneration.
When your skin feels good, your whole body feels good. When your skin is suffering, so, too, are you. If your skin is dry or itchy, swimming in salt water may be the simple solution. Studies have shown that salt water can help to heal a myriad of skin disorders ranging from eczema and psoriasis to acne.
Stress-Be-Gone in Siem Reap
Swimming is always a great way to relieve stress. Swimming in salt water makes it that much better. Just a few laps will reduce any inflammation of your joints and muscles. Salt water also happens to contain the mineral bromide, which helps relieve muscle aches, pain and soreness caused by physical and emotional stress.
Did you know that stress is the number one contributor to aging? That means lounging in the Plunge Pool can be considered anti-aging therapy. Studies have shown that salt water helps promote the body’s natural self-healing processes. The more you swim, the better you will look and feel.
In Southeast Asia, Beauty is Inside & Out
So your skin looks and feels great. What about the stuff beneath the surface? Swimming in salt water also increases circulation to the entire body, and if you swallow a little salt water it won’t kill you – it may actually help heal you from the inside out.
Salt water contains many minerals that are beneficial for your overall health. Your blood needs potassium to help with recovery after any form of exercise, and – you guessed it – there’s potassium in salt water. There are also traces of magnesium, which helps keep your nervous system running at its best, sodium to your immune system in check by regulating the balance of fluids in your body, and calcium for healthy teeth and bones.
