Mud is a locally sourced, fully organic and 100% natural product which can help to avoid the administration of numerous drugs; it has the effect of cortisone without side effects.
We must preface this by saying that some people may not be suited to thermal mud treatments due to potential complications. This is why it is crucial to contact your doctor before starting these spa treatments.
Clay and thermal water together with the microclimate create the benefits of thermal mud
The clay for the mud in Abano and Montegrotto Terme is collected from Lago della Costa (a UNESCO world Heritage site) and Lago di Lispida in the Euganean Hills. It is then placed in the thermal tanks (different tanks depending on the maturation of the mud) in contact with the thermal water. This marriage of clay and thermal water, combined with the microclimate in the Euganean Spa Towns, allows algae to grow slowly which are beneficial for our bodies.
The benefit is not so much in the heat as in the properties that the mature mud possesses (matured for at least two months prior to application). In your hotel, you will be able to see the tanks where the mud is matured, seeing the product being created before it is applied. In addition, some hotels have decided to turn the thermal tanks into an attraction making them more attractive and adding information boards in languages other than Italian.
At any time of year, you can book a relaxing wellness holiday in Abano and Montegrotto Terme.
