It is a therapeutic and body relaxation activity that is carried out in the sea in a group or personalised way for the purposes of prevention, recovery and physical compensation. In all the sessions, the use of seawater as a therapeutic agent is emphasised, as often exercises that seem difficult to practice in dry water can become very easy in the water.
It originates from two concepts "Sea" which corresponds to the liquid agent and its abundance on the planet together with its chemical components. And "kinesis" which refers to the movements of the "Sea" and the exercises that people do in the water for a specific purpose related to their health.
MARCINESIS" combines the temperature of the water and the physical forces of immersion especially the sea by means of therapeutic exercises. Exercises in water have become a very important therapy as a preventive and therapeutic means for a wide range of pathologies, mainly due to the benefits that water brings in comparison to dry exercise. These benefits are mainly to facilitate propulsion, to allow a three-dimensional displacement and to enable flotation, which helps the body to perform movements with greater freedom and less effort and pain than if they were carried out on dry land.
WHY RELAX IN THE SEA?
