Mud therapy


The mud therapy carried out in our treatment area uses certified origin spa mud “maturo”.
Its components make it unique the world over. One in particular is Phormidium SP ETS 05I, a cyanobacteria that due to its anti-inflammatory properties holds a European Patent permitting classification of Euganean thermal mud as a natural medicine.


The mud matures in special tanks where a mixture of spa water and clay rest at a minimum temperature of 38°C for at least 60 days. After this resting time, the mud is considered “mature” because it is covered by greeny-blue algae.


The mud is applied by qualified personnel who follow the instructions in each client’s file, provided by the examining spa doctor. The ideal temperature is 39°C-42°C and the therapy lasts about 15 minutes. After the mud therapy and a hot spa water shower, the client soaks in the spa bath for 8-15 minutes at 37°C-38°C. A good Sweat Reaction lasting 30-60 minutes in a hot environment is an essential stage of good treatment.
