Gynaecological Mud / Peat Tampon

Peat is used in Marienbad, and mud from the salt lake in Sovata for gynaecological treatments. The peat and mud act as a form of localised heat therapy, and are applied in the form of a tampon. Not only is the treatment effective for inflammatory conditions and rehabilitation after gynaecological operations, but is prescribed as a treatment for menstruation and menopause disorders. The salt mud from Sovata is renowned for successfully treating both primary and secondary infertility, especially hypoplasia uteri, as well as sterility caused by ovarian insufficiency and the occlusion of the oviduct.

Maria’s Peat Pack

During this treatment the peat is applied to prescribed body parts. The body is wrapped up in a blanket and at the same time sinks into the membrane of a waterbed, which evokes a pleasant and warm feeling of weightlessness. The body is gradually heated up to the recommended temperature, which can be regulated. The peat wrap decreases local swellings around the joints and eases muscle tension. It reinforces anti-inflammatory and immunity processes in the body, improving the function of the cartilages, connective tissues and intervertebral disks. After the treatment it is recommended to have classical massage.

Mud Pack

In Danubius hotels, the mud used in treatments comes mainly from three famous sources: from the famous Hévíz Thermal Lake in Hungary, and from sediment from a branch of the River Váh on the site of the hot springs in Piešt’any. Saturation of this mud in the thermal waters creates a unique compound inhabited by healing bacteria and sulphur that has many chemical and biological reactions. Firstly, it has excellent heat-conducting features, cooling down four times slower than water, and secondly, when the sulphur and minerals are absorbed through the skin to the ligaments, cartilages and sinews, it inhibits the degradation of elastine and collagen. The mud is applied either by pump or hand onto the body in a 5 cm-wide layer, except for the head and frontal parts of the chest and neck. Its temperature is normally between 40-45°C. The body is then wrapped up in blankets. After 20 minutes, the mud is hosed off and a 15-minute dry wrap can be conducted. The mud pack results in a reduction of local swelling around the joints, a reduction of muscle tension and better nutrition of the cartilage, connective tissue and spinal discs. It also strengthens anti-inflammatory activity and immune processes within the body. The mud can also be applied partially (See: Local Mud Pack). In Sovata, Romania, mud is used from the Bear Salt Lake (See Balneotherapy: Salt Bath). This mud is applied in the same way. The salt mud is not only effective for mobility disorders, but also for some skin conditions and gynaecological disorders (See: Gynaecological Mud/Peat Treatment).

Parafango Pack

Parafango is a combination of dry mud, usually used from a local source as in Piešt’any, and pure hard paraffin and paraffin oil. The mixture is melted and heated in a special unit, then applied to the problematic area of the body in a 1 cm thick layer, just as it begins to harden at a temperature of between 38-45°C. The intensity of the heat is slightly lower than the pure paraffin, making it a more patient-friendly treatment. The local application of the heat relaxes the muscles, causing spasm release, easing chronic pain and supporting the healing and nutrition of the tissues. It also has sedative and immunobiological features.

Paraffin for Hands

Paraffin packs take advantage of the heat conduction effectiveness of paraffin as it hardens at a temperature of approximately 55 °C. There are several different types of application methods, such as soaking a part of the body in paraffin, brushing paraffin onto parts of the body in layers or applying a thin sheet of paraffin onto the problematic area.The local application of the heat relaxes the muscles, causes spasm release, eases chronic pain and supports the healing and nutrition of the tissues. It also has sedative and immune biological features.The treatment in some of our spa locations is followed by dry wrap , immediately after the application of paraffin,  which increases the effect and comfort of the whole treatment

Peat Packs

In our locations where there no natural thermal mud exists, such as in Marienbad, peat is used as an alternative. The procedure is similar to the mud pack (See: Mud Pack), in that the peat is applied to the body at a temperature of between 40-45°C and wrapped either partially or completely onto the body with blankets for a period of 20 minutes. The peat is then hosed off and the treatment may then be completed with a dry wrap (See Other: Dry Wrap). The heat from the peat improves the blood circulation rate and local metabolism, softening the muscles/connective tissues and having an anti-inflammatory effect.

Priessnitz's Packs

Priessnitz’s packs consist of a cold, wet compress, usually fabric, which has been soaked in cold water. This compress is then covered with foil and then replaced with a dry, warm, wool pack. During the first 5-10 minutes, there is an isothermal phase with vasoconstriction, followed by an isothermal phase for 20 minutes, where there is a switch from vasoconstriction to vasodilation. Finally, ongoing local vasodilation and hyperaemia – the hyperthermal phase – occurs for the next 20 minutes. The treatment is normally given for joint problems, pain relief and muscle relaxation. It also can be applied to the chest as a treatment for pharyngitis or coughing.
