Healing Mud

Great remedy for musculoskeletal disorders and skin diseases

Like thermal and spring water, healing mud is mineral-rich, with a great capacity to benefit a full range of illnesses depending on the specific composition of elements such as bromine, sulphur, magnesium and more. Mud is a highlight among all our therapies.

Therapeutic Mud

Therapeutic mud is a mix of mineral water and earthy matter, be it volcanic sediments, alluvial deposits or decomposing flora with organic compounds. In Slovakia, Ensana’s therapeutic mud is matured in the sulphur-rich mineral water for more than one year before use in treatments or before lining the base of the stunning mud pool in Piešt’any.


Mud also has innate thermal qualities - cooling up to four times slower than water - which dilates blood vessels and allow its mineral constituents to penetrate deep into tissue layers. The various Mud therapies can help relieve swelling and pain around joints, reduce muscle tension, build connective tissue in the spinal column, treat infertility and gynaecological conditions, stimulate metabolism and treat skin disorders.

"We improve range of motion and reduce pain with our special underwater traction, together with Hévíz mud, massage and individual gymnastics. A 2-3 week course in our precious tradition gives guests 6 months’ benefit. So, we suggest visiting twice a year."

Hévíz
Hévíz peat mud carpets the bottom of the lake, in places 7 metres thick, after millennia of geological and biological processes. This soft, dark grey mud is packed onto body parts, acting as local heat therapy for easing swollen joints and muscular tension while also supplying nutrients to cartilage and connective tissue. Experiments with Hévíz mud have proved its anti-ageing effects on skin: stimulating cell metabolism and generating collagen for a soft and renewed complexion.

Piešťany
Pieťany mud is uniquely rich in sulphur and hydrogen sulphide which gives it a powerful therapeutic action on muscular skeletal disorders, which also benefit from its heat-conducting qualities and high levels of rare, live bacteria. Harvested from the banks of the town’s River Váh, this peloid sediment is ‘ripened’ or matured for at least a year, in special pools of the spring’s thermal water, before use in the spa. Piešťany mud is certified throughout the EU for its qualities for therapeutic purposes.

Smrdáky
The unique natural sulphurous healing mud originates from the flow of sulphide mineral water through loess soil. After extracting, the mud is stored in a special pool where it matures for one year under the layered sulphide mineral water. The preparation process ends in „a mud kitchen“, from where it goes to the guests. It has a special consistency allowing thermal durability, it cools down 4-times slower than water and warms even deep body structures.

Sovata
Mud is harvested from Bear Lake, (Lacu Ursu), so-named because it is the shape of a bear’s hide. It is famous for treating gynaecological conditions in women. When inserted as a tampon, it has great results for reversing infertility, menstruation and menopausal symptoms and for repairing tissue after gynaecological operations.
