Thalassotherapy — is one of the methods to combat cellulite with the help of seaweed, marine mud and phytoplankton curative effects.
Thalassotherapy helps to:

Thalassotherapy begins with body peeling, as a result of it, the pores get opened, the skin becomes soft and more susceptible to the effects of beneficial components, that helps to intensify detoxification. Algae, clay or therapeutic mud musks are applied on clean and dry skin so that microelements, containing in the masks, "open" fat cells, stimulate their work and cause them to give off fats and toxins that have been accumulated in the form of cellulite.
A thermal effect is created to make the process more active: the body is wrapped in cling film and covered with a warm blanket for 30-40 minutes. At the end, the mask is washed off, and a special gel is applied to the skin.A course of wraps improves microcirculation and blood circulation, making the skin surface smooth, and the body saturated with necessary minerals.
Several millimeters of fat disappear from the body with each procedure, and at the end of the course one may notice that cellulite has gone. The result will be elastic smooth skin, healthy blood circulation, absence of fluid stasis, harmonious psychophysical state, body remineralization.
Thalassotherapy procedures can bring more persistent and quicker results if combined with anti-cellulite massage.
