Common Questions

What is Hungarian Wellness Mud?

There are few countries in the world with such rich spa traditions as Hungary. Hungary’s geography thrives with medicinal thermal waters and mineral material. This is due to the special geological nature of the Carpathian Basin. Hungarian Wellness Mud is used in medicinal spas across Hungary for a wide variety of health problems including chronic degenerative diseases of the joints and the spine, rheumatic and muscular pains, sports-related injuries, fibrositis syndrome, chronic joint inflammations and gynecological inflammations.

Hungarian Wellness Mud has proved to be extremely effective for today’s needed detoxification, cellulite, cell renewal, deep skin cleansing and stress management therapies. The results from using Hungarian Wellness Mud in heated body wrap therapy have proven to be astounding. Using Hungarian Wellness Mud as a facial masque has shown to improve the skin cells’ metabolism, gently soothe skin irritations, and add a refreshing look to dull-paled skin. Hungarian Wellness Mud promotes firmness and strength to body tissues, deeply penetrates the tissues and is effective as an anti-aging treatment by helping maintain the elasticity of the skin.

What does it look and feel like?

When the sun dried mud is mixed with water, it creates an odorless, silky application paste with a stunning rich green color. The mud is textured and has a light-weight feel on the skin. With a variety of customizable options, the mud is extremely versatile in its application. It can be used in cooling or heat-based treatments.

What are the benefits of HWM?

Hungarian Wellness Mud has a remarkable thermal property enabling the mud to retain heat for extended periods of time. By considerably increasing blood flow to specific areas, this heat retaining property is extremely beneficial at aiding the healing process. It also contains Iron and Sulfur which have the profound effect of stimulating blood circulation in both deep and superficial tissue layers.

For example, using this mud in a wrap treatment provides high quantities of Silicon Dioxide, which is found in Collagen, and promotes firmness and strength in the tissues. This helps smooth the surface of the skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Can I use the mud at home?

Because the mud dissolves very quickly in water it can be used effectively within Hydrotherapy treatment and a home-care bathing regime. It can also be used as a facial or body masque to firm and detoxify the skin. Used as a spot treatment, it can reduce inflammation and redness. The mud can also help to heal acnes breakouts and ingrown hairs.
