Wellbeing programmes in Sicily
The island offers a range of
wellbeing experiences, to be savoured in one of the many Sicilian spa hotels
or resorts. Jacuzzi, Turkish baths, spa pools, are just some of the treats
you can immerse yourself in. Moments of total relaxation.
On top of this, there are the more complete therapy treatments: a rereading of
the oldest spa traditions, which in Sicily date back to the times of the Greeks
and Romans, taken right up to the cutting-edge of modern wellbeing science. Thalassotherapy is an
ancient tradition dating back to the Greeks, and which in Sicily has always married
with the natural powers of the island; a must for those that want to soothe circulatory
and muscular problems, or simply want a treatment that takes good care of the
skin and body.
Thalassotherapy uses the beneficial properties of sea water, thanks to
the plankton in the water, which have antibacterial functions, and its salt
The therapeutic power of sea water is extraordinary, with immediate results when used both
internally and externally, used in the treatment of many complaints such as
circulatory problems, joint pain, arthritis, rickets, as well as dermatitis,
tuberculosis and post-traumatic stress rehabilitation. It also alleviates
inflammations, cures ailments of the respiratory tract, helps with female
genital complaints, is excellent for muscle rehabilitation and helps to bolster
the immune system. In short, it does something for everyone.
Thalassotherapy has general benefits for all; it's no surprise that a beach
vacation is always recommended by pediatricians and doctors.
Not only sea water, but also sand and seaweed: for your wellbeing, we have selected
spa offers that make the most of the properties and trace elements of the sea,
including sanding, mists, bath therapy, and treatments with algae. Amongst
the spa vacation packages selected by Sicilying you'll find not only tradition
but also modernity. One example is Kneipp therapy, which you'll be able experience
as part of many of our choice spa holidays.
Kneipp therapy is based on hydrotherapy and uses the healing power of water
to rejuvenate the body.
The most common type of Kneipp therapy consists of walking along paths of
river pebbles, in which your feet are immersed alternately in hot and
cold water. The full course is a real hydrotherapy treatment in which the
alternating hot and cold water is perfectly designed according to defined
thermal shock caused by immersion in water at different temperatures
stimulates the circulatory system and the immune system. The immersion in hot
water creates capillary dilation and an extraordinary feeling of relaxation, while
the cold water tones and strengthens the body. The natural water massage (hydro-massage)
has many draining properties; the lymphatic drainage massage is often carried
out after the walk to further accentuate the feeling of lightness in the legs. After
the treatment, depending on the spa resort chosen, you can dedicate some time
to a sauna or Turkish bath.
Kneipp therapy can have a very positive effect on the emotions, giving a
deep sense of serenity and inner wellbeing.
offers, moreover, not only the power of water but also the energy of
volcanoes in one of the many spa hotels of Catania. And here it is the Orient
that has taught us new ways of wellbeing.
Lava stones placed on chakra points radiate vibrations of warm energy,
relieving tensions in the body and mind. This is the Chakra Stone Massage,
an Oriental technique based on ancient energy therapies, aimed at recuperating harmony
and psycho-physical equilibrium.
a Chakra Stone Massage, the power of lava stones is combined with that of
ayurvedic massage: slow, enveloping movements relax and stretch, melting
the tensions of the body and mind, with an extraordinary harmonizing and
balancing effect. Body and soul stop being separate entities, merging in
blissful moments of absolute relaxation. With the Chakra Stone Massage you will
experience sublime moments that break the daily routine with an oasis of
has Sicily forgotten the ancient use of chromotherapy and the benefits it
brings to body and mind.
According to chromotherapy, colours give off energy that can help restore
the natural balance between body and mind, with therapeutic effects both
physically and mentally.
The practice of chromotherapy has ancient origins; according to
tradition, both the Egyptians ancient Greeks used it. The Greeks
associated colours to the four elements – earth, air, fire, water – and associated
these in turn to so-called 'humors' or 'body fluids'. One's state of health was
the result of balancing these elements, which if altered, gave rise to illness;
cromotherapy was used to re-gain the lost equilibrium. There are modern
scientific studies which support the practice of chromotherapy: light enters
our body as electromagnetic waves and interacts with our cells and in
this way the colours, interacting with the cells, improve biological functions.
The chromotherapy treatments available in spa hotels are numerous,
ranging from showers and baths to chromopuncture, light spraying and much else.
All of these treatments lead you in the same direction: towards recovering psycho-physical
balance and the relaxing experience that follows. Moments of true wellbeing.
