The sea balls, which consist of immersing the hands in a warm seaweed mud, relieve pain and improve the flexibility of the joints.

Algae can also be used in baths: seawater is enriched with finely ground algae. The body is thus full of trace elements, stimulated by the bubbling that accelerates biochemical exchanges.
