Popular in France since the 1960s, thalassotherapy means sea-water cure. It was discovered by a Tour de France cyclist healed from his injuries by seawater in his Brittany home. Today, there are numerous thalassotherapy treatment centers in the Aquitaine.
Treatments are catered to each visitor, and can be used to address any number of ailments. Or just go for the sake of relaxation, a noble cause indeed. A new trend has been combining spa treatments with vinotherapy, or wine treatments. What could possibly be more indulgent, or uniquely French? Additionally, many of these treatment centers have their own upscale accommodations and gourmet restaurants (although most allow for booking of just therapies without overnight stays).
The main thalassotherapy treatment centers are:
Atlanthal (tel. 33-05-59-52-75-75, 153 Boulevard des Plages in Anglet-Biarritz, email@example.com, www.atlanthal.com) has a huge pool of warm sea water, a variety of sea therapies and an on-site nursery, all inside an upscale hotel.

<p>“Invite me to spend the night in your mouth.”</p><p>—Joyce Mansour (1955)</p><p>In their important paper on “Castration and the feminine dimension in both sexes” (Cournut, M. &J. 1993), Monique and Jean Cournut have played a sonata for four hands and two voices, skilfully developing the harmonics and fugues. The term “fugue” is particularly apposite to their thesis and its main focus: the primacy of the phallus, the universal penis, and the castration complex constitute the most inflexible of infantile and adult theoretical constructions; they constitute also a highly effective counter-cathexis for escaping from<sup></sup>2(or, as Freud put it, for “countering”) such an unbearable and horrible representation that it makes authors hesitate between, on the one hand, ignorance or loss of a more ancient form of knowledge (Freud), and, on the other, “non-representability”, via all sorts of repression, denial, splitting, and so on.</p><p>I intend in this chapter to highlight some of their ideas, examine them critically, then reformulate them in a way more appropriate to my own theoretical perspective.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/226908-the-universal-refusal-a-psychoanalytic-exploration-of-the-feminine-sphere-and-its-repudiation">See more</a>
