With a mud pack or a mud bath, you will discover what has been known in many different parts of the world for hundreds of years - that different types of substances, such as mineral sea mud, bog peat, certain kinds of clay, and organic volcanic ash have healing properties.
Mud pack treatments use a complete range of different substances depending on the exact treatment, but this kind of spa treatment is also known as 'pelotherapy'. It is similar to the mud treatments that are famous at the Dead Sea.
