Stress-Busting Treatments

Thalassotherapy has long been a fashionable health treatment. Based on warmed-up sea water, it's designed to relieve stress and physical aches and pains. Whether or not it works (some of its claims for cellulite control could be considered dubious), this 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, the Centro de Talasoterapia and at Lopesan Villa del Conde.
