The strong point of Grado’s Seaside Spa - immersed in an extraordinary marine climate – is thalassotherapy, a treatment method that involves the use of sea water and its beneficial properties, which have a cleansing, toning and rebalancing effect on our organism.
The Seaside Spa offers hydrotherapy treatments including baths, aerosols, inhalations, nebulisations and insufflations and manual and mechanical physiotherapy.
