Steam bath, Hay bath, Seaweed bath, Mud bath, Ghassoul clay bath and Black soap bath can all be used in the Thalaxoterm bed.

Thalatepee Suite

The suite is based on the principles of the American Indian culture where the tepee is a place of purification. The suite adorned with lights, colours, music and fragrances, is used for receiving beauty and purification treatments. It can be experienced individually or with a group of up to 6 people. Seaweed bath, Mud-bath, Ghassoul clay bath, various massages, scrubs and detoxification treatments can be performed in this suite.

The elegant ergonomic bed is designed for spa treatments and massages. Thanks to a built-in boiler, the bed helps to maintain internal body temperature during treatments such as mud packs, steam baths and body peeling.

Traditional medicine has always believed that colours have a significant effect on people’s health and mood. The Egyptians, Romans, and Greeks used heliotherapy (exposure to direct sunlight) to treat several disorders. This concept has been fused with modern technology creating a calming yet stimulating effect. A flood of colours creates emotions and deep relaxation while choosing specific colours concentrates on targeted healing techniques.

Sensation Bed

This bed is a water floating massage bed with a heating system and cromotherapy. The bed is made of okume wood and gives a wonderful sensation of floating with changing colours to help relaxation during treatments. In the Thalaxoterm and Thalatepee Suite aromatherapy, music therapy and chromotherapy are combined creating a holistic approach to the treatments.

This holistic healing method acts on the physical and mental processes. Essential oils are extremely volatile substances that are diffused and easily reach the nose, stimulating the olfactory system.

Music therapy

Thalaxoterm and Thalatepee are both equipped with an advanced sound system that transfers vibrations to the body, creating deep relaxation. Music therapy is a paramedical discipline using sound, music and movement to produce “regressive” effects and open communication channels, aiming to activate the socialization process. This psychotherapeutic technique is used in rehab and recovery and overall enhancement of quality of life.
