How lucky we are to live surrounded by sandy beaches and ocean breezes! Long Islanders know that nothing invigorates like a swim in the ocean, or calms and soothes like the sound of crashing waves on the shore. A day at the beach is medicine for the soul!
In fact, throughout history doctors prescribed spending time at the sea to treat many ailments, both physical and mental. Vitamins, minerals, and trace elements in seawater help to activate the body's healing mechanism.
Sea air is charged with negative ions which increase serotonin, the happy hormone that regulates our mood and sense of well being. Ocean water is rich in magnesium which helps to reduce stress and relax muscles. In addition, the mineral salts in ocean water help regenerate skin and strengthen the immune system.
Summer has come to an end, but we can enjoy the healthy benefits of seaside living all year round. Autumn and winter walks on the shore are a great way to exercise and experience the benefits of the sea air. The tranquility of an empty winter beach is magical!
However, if a cold windy beach is not your idea of relaxation there is an alternative for you. Ocean Spa Beauty and Wellness is offering a new signature treatment called "The Marine Immersion Experience".
