Mud therapy

For some people taking a holiday means fun and sport and for others it is the pursuit of well-being. However, you can find both at the spas in the Veneto Region. There are extraordinary healing properties in the application of various therapeutic, aesthetic and "getting back into shape" treatments found in the spas. Among the different types of applications, mud treatment is excellent thanks to the unique properties found in the mud that is used.

Due to its unique anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties, the mud of the Terme Euganee boasts a European patent (DOC ripened mud). The secret is in the water that starts to flow from the uncontaminated basins of the Alps, and after a long underground journey during which it is enriched with particularly beneficial minerals, it resurfaces in the area of the Terme Euganee at a temperature of 87 °. This unique water is at the base of the ripening, conservation and regeneration process of the thermal mud.

From a microbiological point of view, the mud of the Euganean area is "ripened mud" and is able to guarantee proven and durable therapeutic effects after undergoing a series of transformations resulting in the combined action of thermal water, clay and microorganisms.

Ochre mud retains heat and then dissipates it gradually and that is why this mud is particularly suited for treating post-trauma fractures.
