Modern thalassotherapy – from the Greek thálassa, meaning sea, and therapeía, meaning healing – began in 1964, when French champion cyclist Louison Bobet opened a thalassotherapy center that became the Sofitel Quiberon Thalassa Sea & Spa resort.

The huge spa, complete with an 25-meter saltwater pool and wooden terrace lined with loungers, overlooks a small curve of sand lapped by crashing waves.

Relatively little known in North America, thalassotherapy involves bath, shower and massage treatments with seawater to stimulate healing and relaxation.
Aside from being very enjoyable, they have also been shown to have solid medical benefits. The basic idea is that seawater and human plasma are similar in composition, so heating seawater to body temperature allows the skin to absorb beneficial trace minerals by osmosis. Seawater contains trace elements, minerals and vitamins essential to the vitality of the body. Known since the 19th century, thalassotherapy helps on the stress, fatigue, insomnia and joint or muscle pain.

The hotel's state-of-the-art Thalassotherapy Institute offers several treatment sessions each day. Among the treatments are sea-mud wraps, underwater showers and high-pressure jet massages. During treatment sessions, these are interspersed with activities such as aqua gym, during which you do calisthenics while standing in a pool. During the 10- to 40-minute intervals between treatments, you can swim in the huge indoor saltwater pool or relax in the sunroom.
