Why mud is good for you
Mud bath therapy is a natural kind of treatment, and at least 6 consecutive daily sessions are recommended, once or twice a year.
Mature mud contains anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties that are released when it is applied to the body. The heat produced by the mud causes vasodilatation, relaxes muscles and stimulates the production of cortisol and endorphins, which help increase pain tolerance.
The short-term effects of a mud therapy cycle are analgesic and muscle relaxing, which lead to improving joint flexibility.
The long-term effects of the therapy are evident in the prevention of pain worsening and in slowing down the degenerative evolution of ostheoarthritis.
Hydrokinesitherapy in our thermal pools is particularly indicated for post-trauma and pre- and post-surgery rehabilitation, as well as for the treatment of joint problems such as osteoarthritis, arthritis, muscular pain and vertebral pain.
In other words, it is the best therapy for anyone who has difficulty moving and feels pain.
Immersing yourself in a thermal pool, thanks to the specific chemical composition of the water and its temperature, permits gently and gradually recovering muscular use; with great benefits and little effort the first steps in recovering movement can be made, before moving on to more intense forms of activity, up to using the water as an element of resistance to strengthen muscles.
Please take a look at our list of thermal treatments, where you will find our health and well-being offer based on mud, baths and inhalations, therapeutic massages and rehabilitative therapies both in and out of the water
