Relax with a Mud Bath

Aug 17, 2007
Have you ever wondered why some people enjoy taking a mud bath? The reason is simple; it is an incredibly relaxing experience. It's a warm soothing experience that allows a person to let the tension out by doing nothing more than enjoying the warmth melt away the stress. The bath mud mixture will be warm enough to make you sweat and it is claimed that this gives certain health benefits from cleaning the pores to alleviating muscle aches and improving a person's complexion.

You should not assume that these bathes are just made of garden variety dirt that has become wet enough to be called mud. A proper mud bath is made of three important ingredients. It starts with volcanic ash. Added to this to make it into mud is water from a hot spring. No ordinary water can be used; it will not have the same affect. To keep it soft, so the person can enjoy the warmth of the moisture, is peat moss. Without this the mud would grow hard and cake on the bather's body in a very uncomfortable way. Frequently in recent years an extra ingredient has begun to be added. This takes the form of an essential oil. This aromatherapy addition is most often either lavender or eucalyptus. This type of relaxation therapy is more often appreciated by women than their male counterparts. But some people do not feel comfortable having a mud bath. For example, if you are claustrophobic the is not the thing for you since you will be lying up to your neck in a foreign substance.

If you have a health problem you must check with your health care provider that this treatment is not bad for whatever condition you might have. Also, it is not recommended for pregnant women. After you have completed your immersion in mud you will get washed off. Then usually you will a mineral bath feel cleansed. This can be followed by a sauna or even a massage. If you are looking for the full treatment expect to spend up to three hours.

For many people, having a mud bath is a luxurious treat, one that they may allow themselves on special occasions. Other people use them as part of their routine beauty regimen, or as part of a healthy lifestyle. Whatever the reason, it is obvious that the mud bath has been with us a long time, and will be with us for many years to come.
