The Benefits of Thalassotherapy in Sardinia
My favorite kind of holiday is a relaxing vacation, generic
I spent a holiday at Valle dell’Erica Resort, in Gallura, a charming venue built in 1958, then refurbished by Delphina Hotels & Resorts, a brand born to promote the peerless natural resources of Sardinia.
Thalassotherapy, the medical use of seawater, is a top feature of the resort and is the best way to appreciate the benefits of this slice of heaven: the available treatments are conceived to remove toxins, help respiration and oxygenation, giving a sense of pure wellbeing.
Why choose a Spa in Sardinia?
All the Delphina Thalasso centres draw water for their pools and treatments from the sea near the hotels and from the currents of the Straits of Bonifacio without any chemical purification, to keep unaltered the microbiological properties of the water.
Valle dell’Erica offers 4 swimming pools at different temperatures and 15 booths for massages and beauty treatments; I booked the “Man Relax” program because I was curious about the positive effects of thalassotherapy, this package gave me back a great mental vitality deleting accumulated stress only in 3 days!
The wellness circuit includes the use of pools, Turkish bath, sauna and cardio-fitness room, but the strong points of the package were the body scrub, the hydro-massage baths with re-mineralizing sea salt, the affusion showers (a rain-like spray intended to massage the body) and a specific facial treatment for man. After this 3-days immersion in a Thalasso Wellness Centre I understood why high quality water is essential to gain my inner balance and come back home with a lot of energy.
How to stay in shape during the holidays
My first concern when I’m on vacation is to stay in shape, so I need to choose hotels provided with restaurants offering healthy menus and following losing weight programs. The Delphina resorts are the unique accommodation facilities in Sardinia that collaborate with the famous Dr. Pierre Dukan and his team, providing diet programs on request. The combination between thalassotherapy and Dukan Diet method is a winning formula for me, because I did two medical examinations, I was assisted by the highly-qualified staff throughout my stay and I followed a cooking course with the chef Nando Rossi, a useful lesson to learn how to cook by myself the Dukan Diet dishes.
I’m sure to come back to Sardinia next year; it was a very relaxing and regenerating wellness experience!
