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.

Local Mud Pack

A maximum of four local areas are permitted without a doctor’s prescription. The mud pack results in a reduction of local swelling around the joints as well as an easing of muscle tension. It also strengthens anti-inflammatory activity and immune processes within the body, improving the function of the cartilage, connective tissues and spinal discs.

Mud Pack

/w/assignables/logo/2_126_maxi_en.jpg

The mud used at our hotels comes from the famous Hévíz thermal spring in Hungary, and from sediment collected by the hot springs of the river Vág in Piešťany in Slovakia. The therapeutic mud has a similar effect to that of the medicinal waters. The most characteristic feature of mud is its good heat storage and heat dissipation capacity. Warmth dilates the blood vessels and accelerates the metabolism. As a consequence, the treatment eases chronic inflammations. Warmth also relaxes the muscles and tendons and eases cramps. Of the mineral components of mud, iodine and bromine have a loosening effect, calcium, bromine and magnesium have a relaxing effect and sulphur boosts local metabolism. The temperature of the mud pack is usually 38-42°C, but the doctor can specify a lower temperature. The mud pack is applied on the body areas and joints prescribed by the doctor. The body is then wrapped into an insulating sheet. After 20 minutes, the mud is washed off, which at some hotels can be followed by a 15-minute dry body pack, but at least 15 minutes of rest is definitely recommended. The treatment eases the swelling of joints, muscular tension, and improves the nutrient supply of cartilages, connective tissue and spinal discs. Furthermore, it also strengthens the body’s anti-inflammatory and immune processes. The mud can also be applied partially (see: Partial mud pack). In Sovata, Romania, the mud is extracted from Bear Lake (Lacu Ursu) (see Balneotherapy: Salt bath) and is used in the same way. In addition to musculoskeletal disorders, the salty mud is also suitable for the treatment of certain skin disorders and gynecological diseases (see: Gynecological mud/peat therapy treatment).

Parafango Pack

/w/assignables/logo/2_129_maxi_en.jpg

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 Pack

/w/assignables/logo/2_128_maxi_en.jpg

Paraffin packs take advantage of the heat-conducting 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 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.

Peat Packs

/w/assignables/logo/2_131_maxi_en.jpg

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.

Special Cream Pack

/w/assignables/logo/2_133_maxi_en.jpg

A variety of special cream packs is available for inflammatory and painful conditions. Generally, the cream is spread on the affected body part, which is covered with a special foil and kept warm with a blanket. These creams include Inno-reuma, Antiphlogistin and sulphur, which have a chilling effect when applied to the skin. They are also effective for anti-inflammation and pain relief. Likewise, the Ritex pack achieves the same effect, but creates a hot sensation when applied to the skin, which additionally helps blood circulation to the area.
