Apparently, it's the power of the sea! Thalassotherapy--bathing in seawater and sea salts, getting seaweed wraps--according to the article in the April Vogue, is detoxifying.

The explanation: "Through osmosis, excess water flows out of your system." And the vitamins, minerals, algae, etc, from the sea are said to dissolve toxins in your system.

Anyone had any experience with this?

I take baths and do foot soaks with dead sea minerals and I always feel better afterwards, energized, less sick if I'm coming down with something. Sometimes, I add epsom salts and that really seems to create some detoxifying synergy.

Haven't ever tried a wrap, though.

What do you guys think?
