11 Benefits of a Mud Bath

A therapeutic “mud bath” experience is a unique spa treatment you’ll certainly want to try.  But what is it exactly, and why should you try it?  In Calistoga, where the Roman Spa specializes in mud baths and massage, the “mud” is actually a mix of volcanic ash, natural peat and  warm geothermal mineral water from the spa’s own spring.  A deep soak tub is filled with lofty, aerated mixture, and your body is submerged up to your neck, but you don’t feel weighed down or trapped (a common fear). It’s more like the sensation of being in surrounded by thick, warm blanket.   Here are 11 reasons to try this unique experience.

1. ADVENTURE
Taking a mud bath puts a little adventure in your life.  It can be fun to experience something new with a friend or loved one.
2. RELIEVES MUSCLE ACHES AND JOINT PAIN
The deep heat from mud mixed with geothermal waters have incredible anti-inflammatory properties.
3. RELIEVES BODY STRESS
When submerged in a mud bath you are completely suspended in a lightweight, moist ashy mixture, with no pressure on your body.
4. RELAXATION
The warm, soft mixture of the mud  “feels awesome” and allows your body to let go.
5. DETOXIFICATION
The earthy mixture draws out toxins and impurities from your body.
6. SKIN SOFTENING
The volcanic ash mixed with geothermal natural water exfoliates and softens skin.
7. IMPROVES CIRCULATION
The heat from the geothermal water and the Jacuzzi jets invigorate your circulation.
8. BALANCE pH LEVELS
Complex minerals from Calistoga’s historic geothermal waters are infused into your body, helping to balance out and restore your body’s natural pH.
9. CALM THE MIND
Roman Spa in Calistoga is one of only 2 properties in Calistoga that offer private treatment rooms. This assures calm, quiet and serenity and for the 60 minutes you are resting in a Mud Bath, you are unplugged, resting, and calming the mind.
10. ALL IN ONE
Mud baths at Roman Spa include a geothermal shower and mineral bath, all within the same room, because once you are relaxed, you are not going to want to dress and travel far to another room or location.
11. PREPARATION FOR A MASSAGE
The mud and mineral baths will both encourage and prepare your muscles to relax, enabling your massage therapist to release even more tension and stress.

Is it hygienic?

A reputable spa like Roman Spa Hot Springs Resort changes the mud mixture after each guest. Volcanic ash, peat and mineral water do not harbor bacteria, so this is a “clean” environment.  That said, avoid a Mud Bath if you have open wounds or skin irritations which may be irritated by the treatment.  Your Roman Spa therapist can advise you in advance if you have these concerns. Just call!
