The Gurney family built Gurney’s Inn in 1926. WhenNick Monte visited Gurney’s in 1956 he fell in love withthe magnificent panoramic ocean view and soon after hepurchased the inn. In 1979, he completed the InternationalHealth and Beauty Spa. Our Spa, built in the Europeantradition, is the only true Thalasso Center in the continentalUnited States. Thalasso Therapy comes from the Greek wordfor “sea”, and refers to a variety of treatments thatuse sea water and seaweed,each designed to tone,moisturize and revitalize thebody and skin, and in manycases to improve circulation.A Thalasso program includeshydro massage in speciallydesigned hydrotherapy tubsfilled with filtered sea water,exercise in heated sea waterpools, body treatments usingseaweed products, massage,relaxation, good nutrition, andexercise outside in the sea air.Sea water has remarkableproperties. Sea water contains120 chemical compounds inthe form of salts and dissolvedgases. It is very rich in vitamins,minerals and trace elements invery similar proportions to thehuman blood plasma. It alsocontains microorganisms thatproduce antibiotic, antiviral and antibacterial substances.Sea water is heated to 82 degrees in our indoor pool, and 94degrees in our hydrotherapy baths to optimize exchangeswith the body. Heated sea water allows minerals and traceelements to pass through the barrier of the skin. The ionsthat penetrate into the body will selectively wander andfix themselves in the organs where they are most needed.The body recharges itself with minerals and trace elements,therefore detoxifying and rebalancing all body functions.Seaweed, the crop of the sea, has an even greaterconcentration of sea water minerals, and provides a virtualpharmacy of beneficial elements to be used for our bodywraps. Seaweed products used in our Spa are created by SpaTechnologies, using the rich seaweeds harvested off the coastof Brittany in France. The special properties of seaweed helpthe elasticity of skin tissue, increase circulation, stimulatemetabolism, and promote detoxification.The sea air, rich in negative ions and sea minerals plays avery special part in a Thalasso Therapy program. Beachwalking at the edge of the sea promotes the inhalation of the minerals, which are then absorbed through the lungsdirectly into the blood stream. The high concentration of negative ions, which is so characteristic of a healthy climate,contributes to the vitalization of thebody.Another important element of Thalasso Therapy is aquaticexercise. Exercise in our heated seawater pool allows for movementand flexibility not available onland. The increase in hydrostaticpressure against the bodyincreases circulation, stimulatesthe kidneys and promotesdigestion.The effect of Thalasso Therapyis profound. Thalasso Therapytreatments have a beneficialeffect on the skin, cellularexchanges, the respiratorysystem and the body as a wholewith a better oxygenation,increased elimination of toxinsand a revitalization of themind and body. The differentorientations allow you to finda program to fit your needs focusing onwellness, relaxation and well-being, beauty, slimming andbody shaping.
