Stress-Busting Treatments

Thalassotherapy has long been fashionable health treatment. Based on warmed-up sea water, it's designed to relieve stress and other more physical aches and pains. Whether or not it works (some of its claims for cellulite control seem a bit dubious), it is still a sensual experience in its own right and often does wonders for skin ailments. There are centres throughout the island, including at the Hotel Puerto de las Nieves, Talasoterapia Las Canteras in Las Palmas, the Hotel Gloria Palace near Playa del Inglés and at the magnificent Villa del Conde in Maspalomas.
