Then of course there are the positive benefits for body image. How many people go through their lives tortured by insecurity about perceived ‘faults’ with their bodies, suffering low self esteem as a result? Our blemishes, scars and ‘imperfections’ are not unique, we all have them. Naturism helps us to understand this and also to realise that the human body is to be celebrated for its rich diversity, not held as an object of shame.
Naturism is a non-sexual environment, there is nothing lewd or inappropriate going on (this would be as unacceptable as in a clothed situation), and as such it is great for the whole family. Our children grow up with a greater awareness of the human body. In fact Naturism offers something of an antidote to the unhealthy yet pervasive images of the ‘perfect body’ with which they are continually confronted and which can cause so many body hang-ups in later life.
So what exactly do we do at Vassaliki? Quite simply what everyone does in social/holiday situation, except that when the circumstances permit we prefer not to wear clothes. At Vassaliki we have an outdoor swimming pool and hot tub. Our staff run weekly aqua aerobics classes and the on site masseuse offers a full range of wellness and beauty treatments.
