hydrothermal health centers

The mineral rich deep seawater from hydrothermal energy utilization may be used multipurpose to promote health in humans. Commonly used in Thalasso therapy, trace elements of magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium, and iodine found in seawater are believed to be absorbed through the skin. The therapy is applied in various forms, such as warmed seawater showers. Thalasso therapy may be an effective revenue and occupancy generator for deep ocean water resorts as is demonstrated in Intercontinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa in French Polynesia.1
