Peloids, or peat, moor and mud, have an excellent ability to preserve a constant temperature. This quality is used for a procedure called pelotherm during which a thin peloid layer is applied on a foil which is put over an affected body part which gradually warms up. The specific warmth of the heated peloid is transferred to the tissues in the treated area; as a result, the local blood supply is improved and the tissues are filled with released medicinal mineral substances. This helps to alleviate the symptoms of the inflammatory, degenerative and post-traumatic disorders of the locomotor system as well as digestive tract disorders; it also promotes better metabolism, helps with the management of airway diseases, urological and gynecological concerns and mental issues.
Contraindication: all acute conditions, inflammatory and oncologic diseases, pregnancy, etc.
