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.
Is it hygienic?
A reputable spa 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 therapist can advise you in advance if you have these concerns. Just call!
