Healing Procedures and Creative Workshops Are Awaiting You at Sea, Health and Beauty Festival 2017

Medical University "Prof. Dr. Paraskev Stoyanov" - Varna organizes Sea, Health and Beauty Festival. This year the initiative is being held with the partnership of St. St. Constantine and Helena Resort and will take place at MU - Varna and Azalia Hotel on 19 and 20 May 2017.

As a part of the Festival programme, the organizers have prepared healing and beauty procedures. Thalassotherapy for face and body - "The Power of the Sea in Favour of Beauty" will start at 10:00 am, at Azalia Hotel, and will continue throughout the day.

The guests will have the chance to take delight in the special SPA procedures with cosmetic products with sea ingredients, prepared by the students majoring in "Medical Cosmetician" at MU – Varna.

The term thalassotherapy comes from the Greek word "thalasso", and literally it means "sea". In the late 19th century the French biologist Rene Quinton proved the relation between blood plasma and seawater, discovering that white blood cells can live in seawater. And in 1899 the French Dr Louis Bagot created the first thalassotherapy centre at Roscoff based on seawater treatment.

The well-known medical benefits of thalassotherapy have a wide range - from rehabilitation after traumas to enhancing the treatment of gynecological diseases and weight reduction. It is also extremely effective in lung, cardiovascular and nervous system disorders. The minerals, vitamins, salts and other beneficial substances in seawater and algae improve blood circulation, metabolism, strengthen the immune system and maintain the hormonal balance.

A competition for hand-made objects and ornaments made from marine materials starts at 10:30 am at the conference hall of Azalia Hotel. The workshop for creative personalities in the framework of the Festival will welcome everyone willing to create items and ornaments made from shells, mussels, seaweeds, scallops and golden sand, while a competent jury will award the best works of art at the end of the day. If you have artistic talents, an awesome creative idea, and a desire to share your skills and experience with other people inspired by art, welcome to our workshop!

It has been proven that hobbies and creative pursuits in your leisure time help to alleviate anxiety. It is beneficial to be open-minded and to experiment with new things.
