Mud Bath Spa Treatments
Visiting a mud bath spa presents a paradox. How do you bathe in something that makes you dirty? And more importantly, why would you?
The short answer: spending some time up to your neck in mud can be good for your skin. The longer answer, however, is a bit more nuanced and involves a closer look at fangotherapy—treatments that involve mud.
Mud—especially Dead Sea mud—has been said to alleviate the symptoms of skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema, and rosacea. Being buoyed by a warm mud bath can also ease assorted aches and pains in the joints, such as those that stem from arthritis.
Some people bathe in mud for cosmetic reasons, too. Dr. R. Makala Anders, a dermatologist at Sonoma and Santa Rosa Dermatology, said the minerals in mud can indeed “rejuvenate and stimulate” skin cells, causing them to “plump up” for a more glowing appearance. He noted that mud is a great moisturizer, one that naturally causes the skin to feel tighter and healthier.
And, of course, floating in a mud bath can be relaxing.
