hungarymud works with three mutually inclusive effects: mechanical, thermal and mineral.
The thermal qualities of the mud allow it to retain temperature. When hot water is added, warm mud increases blood flow to tight muscles and areas of stagnation aiding release and detoxification. When cold water is added, cool mud has an anti-inflammatory effect on nerves, joints and muscles.
When packed onto specific body parts, in a 3-4 mm deep mud pack, the natural pressure of the mud's weight (mechanical effect) further increases blood circulation thus allowing the mud's mineral content to penetrate deeply into layers of tissue giving a more profound healing effect. As minerals are drawn in through the skin, so toxins are drawn out at the same time.
