Focus on Mud Therapy

Mud consists of a mixture of a solid component that is essentially inorganic (clay) and a liquid component (thermal water). The pH is alkaline and has an extremely low cooling index (it only loses 10% of the initial temperature after being exposed to room temperature for one hour).
The mud is kept soaked in special mud pools for about a year before being used. In such locations, the salty-sulphate-alkaline water supply with a strong salt concentration, rich in hydrogen sulphide and with an average temperature of 34 degrees, continuously mixes the deposited mud, imbuing it with salt components, directly from the Leopoldina spring.
Suitable for: chronic soft tissue rheumatism and arthrosis (tendinitis, fibrositis) and gastro-enteric and biliary dyspepsia. The application temperature of the mud is 47 degrees.
Time is spent in a Roman bath with Leopoldina water at 38° following the mud bath.
Mud therapy can be applied to the liver district for a positive effect on Hepatobiliary functional problems.

Effects of Mud Therapy

The application of mud increases the local skin temperature and distance, oscillating between 0.5 and 3 degrees.
The increase in temperature has a muscle relaxant and analgesic effect and stimulates the diencephalon-pituitary axis and therefore, the production of endorphins and cortisol in anyone after an analgesic and anti-inflammatory therapeutic effect from the mud bath.
