Questions about mud therapy

How does mud therapy work?

The process is the following: warm thermal mud is applied via coating on the joints mentioned by the thermal doctor for a thickness of approximately 10 cm and kept for 15-20 minutes.

Do I need to use underwear during the mud therapy?

Thermal doctors suggest to don't use underwear during the treatment but the choice is totally up to the patient.

What happens after the mud therapy?

After the mud therapy, the patient takes a cleansing shower to remove mud's residues from the body and allowing to take the thermal bath. 

The thermal bath consists in the immersion in thermal water with a temperature of 37-38°C

At the end of the bath, the patient, wiped with warm linen, is invited to have a seat on one of the loungers in the relaxation area where he's wrapped with its own linen and a blanket. It's in this stage that sweat reaction takes place and lasts for more or less 5 minutes.

What are the benefits of mud therapy?

Mud therapy causes deep and complex changing over the body with therapeutic effects on the articular system, muscles and skin.

It's indicated for arthro-rheumatic and dermatological pathologies.


Is there any contraindication to mud therapy?

Mud therapy is always contraindicated during the acute stages of any pathology; it's instead suggested during the remission period to prevent further restarts.

Patients with rheumatoid arthritis will be submitted to a thorough check-up by the doctor (it would also be appropriate to take blood chemistry tests with inflammation index).

Decompensated organ failures, haemorrhagic manifestations, malignant neoplasms, varicose veins in the lower limbs especially if exacerbated by phlebitis and ulcers are as well contraindicated.

There's no absolute contraindication to the mud therapy in the case of metallic prostheses.


Does the complete mud and bath therapy contemplate mud application all over the body?

NO, not always, it's the thermal doctor who defines the application areas.
