Spas, spas and thalassotherapy centres in the Region of Murcia

The Region of Murcia is one of the ideal places to practice the Tourism of Health. It is no coincidence that it is one of the autonomous communities with more tourism in holiday periods thanks to its warm waters that bathe its Mediterranean coast.

The thalassotherapy centres, one of the attractions next to the Mar Menor

As a region bathed by the sea, the Costa Cálida could not avoid thalassotherapy. It’s a great way to blend health, relaxation and seawater. The Mar Menor, a salty coastal lagoon, is rich in high salinity and magnesium, calcium, sodium, bromine, iodine and fluorine. For that reason, it is an ideal water to treat illnesses in its Thalassotherapy Centres.

You can find Thalassotherapy Centres in Los Alcázares (where you can accompany your golf day treatment), three specialised centres in the town of San Pedro del Pinatar and also in La Manga del Mar Menor.

In addition to spas and thalassotherapy centres, the Region of Murcia has other establishments that invite you to relax and avoid everyday problems. Another of the health tourism centres are the spas, hydrotherapy centres that use water as an element in their treatments, among other elements to help rejuvenation, relaxation and wellbeing.

But there are also treatments with seaweed, chocolate, wine, pearls, water and gold. A lot of different therapies that adapt to the tastes of each visitor.

A variety of Spas throughout the Region of Murcia at the disposal of its visitors.

The spas cover the largest offer in the Region distributed by the towns of: Águilas, Archena, Cartagena, Lorca, Los Alcázares, La Manga del Mar Menor and Torre Pacheco.

But the offer of Health Tourism in the region of Murcia does not end there. The salinity conditions of the Mar Menor have been depositing their best properties in the mud that are housed in the seabed at the north end of the lagoon. Muds that are ideal for therapeutic treatments.

Their composition, with a high percentage of cations, calcium, magnesium, potassium, fluorine, anions, chloride and sulphate verified with analysis by the University of Murcia, provide multiple benefits to users of sludge Murcia. This treatment is recommended for people suffering from ailments related to bones and joints.

Sludge from the Region of Murcia, natural health and beauty treatment

The best muds of the region are found in “Las Salinas”, in Lo Pagán, and the well-known “muds of the Mar Menor”. In addition to these three areas, mud treatments can be found in the Thalassotherapy Centers of the region. They are used both as treatment of diseases and for beauty sessions. The sludge also has an incredible healing effect thanks to its mineralizing action.

Besides being recommended for pathologies related to the bones and joints, the muds of the Mar Menor are indicated for people with skin problems due to their drying effect or to apply in inflamed areas.

To enjoy a perfect mud bath in the areas of the region of fine, just apply them with your own hand or with a spatula. They are left to act on the skin for a maximum of one hour. The most recommendable thing is to carry out this type of baths in summer so that the clay dries as quickly as possible, although thanks to the good climate prevailing in the region it is perfectly possible to carry out it in other times.
