The sea (thalassotherapy, inhalation therapy)
It is generally known how useful and beneficial for human health is sea water. The traces of metal and chemical elements it contains contribute significantly to balancing and hydration of the body as well as the regeneration and revitalization of the cells of human organism.
The seawater is rich in traces of magnesium, calcium, sodium, potassium and iodine, substances necessary for the proper functioning of human organism. As we know calcium is good for growth and strengthening of bones, whereas iodine plays an essential role in the proper functioning of the thyroid.
There are several ways for the human body to take the beneficial substances of the sea water. The taking with inhalation (inhalation therapy) seems to be the most effective. A person simply inhales suspended in the air micro droplets of sea water generated by the movement of the sea and waves.
Agiasmata is ideal place for thalassotherapy by breathing (inhalation therapy).
And this is the reason:
The north winds in Agiasmata are the norm throughout most of the year. In winter, it is understandable. In summer it is the “meltemi”, a summer north wind that blows most of the summer period. So the waves are almost permanent situation in Agiasmata. The "askothalassa", as locals call the phenomenon in which the waves fall forcefully on the coast and create literally whole "clouds" full with sea water droplets, is a common picture.
What better conditions could someone imagine for sea water inhalation?
