Mud baths are full or partial baths in peat mixed with water.
On the one hand, its effect is due to the fact that the peat keeps the heat for a long time and it transfers the heat to the body in a bath considerably slower than water.
Mud baths are therefore used as so-called overheating baths: A 20 minute mud bath with a temperature up to 46 degrees is not felt as unpleasantly hot and allows the body temperature to increase by two degrees, an artificially generated fever so to speak.
Mud treatments have a positive influence on the immune system and metabolism due to this warming up of the core body temperature. Furthermore, the heat relaxes the muscles and the nervous system. On the other hand, peat also contains anti-inflammatory substances.
Mud treatments are recommended for arthrosis, osteoporosis, rheumatism, Bekhterev's disease, gynaecological diseases and menopausal complaints.
In terms of a holistically orientated service offering, the Wiener Privatklinik offers mud treatment at the highest quality level.
