An exceptional relaxing beauty treatment: herbal thermal mud

When you arrive at Hotel Tritone after a long journey or a stressful day at work, it is important to start your holiday with the right amount of relaxation. Just as a good aperitif begins a wonderful evening, so the herbal thermal mud prepares the body for your stay, relaxing the muscles from the very first moment.

This is an aesthetic treatment, different from therapeutic thermal mud. Herbal thermal mud does not cure illnesses and is not subject to maturation and regeneration phases (it is not reusable). However, this aesthetic treatment has an immediate benefit due to the herbs it contains and is suitable for those who are unable to undergo other therapies.

The ingredients of herbal thermal mud are arnica and devil’s claw 

This treatment is a blend of herbs selected for their cleansing properties. The base is a mix of arnica and devil’s claw, which start to act the moment the mud is mixed with thermal water. The scent of the herbs combines with the pleasant warmth of the water to create the aromatic compound of this treatment, in a ritual that lasts about 55 minutes.

The process of applying herbal thermal mud

The guest is accompanied to the mud cabin and lies down on the couch. The operator creates the mud by combining thermal water with herbs in a bowl. The aromatic compound is applied to all joints: ankles, knees, neck area, back, elbows and wrists. The guest is wrapped in a special Cartene sheet and then in wool blankets to maintain body warmth. The mud is left on for about 20 minutes.

When finished, the guest is accompanied to the shower to remove the mud. This is followed by the ozone bath, a further relaxing moment that helps to relax the joints and muscles. The bath lasts 10-12 minutes, after which the guest gets out and dries off.

After the treatment, the client is always recommended to have a therapeutic massage or rest.

The ideal time for herbal thermal mud

This treatment relieves short-term pain, relaxes muscles and limbs, and has a stable temperature that is comfortable for the body (unlike therapeutic mud, where the temperature is set by the spa doctor).

For this reason, it is highly recommended for those who want to treat themselves to a little pampering. Some have chosen it to relax their lower back after a long drive to the Hotel Tritone. Other guests, on the other hand, have found this treatment rejuvenating after intense physical activity or to relieve swollen legs and feet after a stressful week at work.
