The phases of treatment

1) MEDICAL EXAMINATION BEFORE ADMISSION TO TREATMENTS

2) APPLICATION

Made of clay from the spa lakes in Arquà Petrarca and Lispida, the mud is applied gradually to the skin at a temperature of 39°- 42°C, avoiding more delicate zones

3) THERMAL BATH AND REACTION

The Balneotherapy treatment consists of immersing (excluding the head) the body in thermal water at a temperature of 36-38 ° C for about 10-15 minutes. A complete cycle of treatment includes 12 thermal baths (1 bath per day). Balneotherapy is usually carried out after mud therapy to improve therapeutic results. The reaction is similar to the reaction given by mud therapy, but in this case it has a lower response in terms of intensity.

4) THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE

Ideal for decontracturing, toning and reactivating the muscular system after the mud therapy. A massage should always be chosen after the mud-therapy.
