Mud Therapy at Abano Thermal Spas

a certified natural cure

Our Spa Treatments are approved!

Hotel Aurora Terme has been approved by the National Health Service (USSL), local health authority and the main Italian health provider agencies.

Mud therapy is a 100% natural cure, which proved to prevent and effectively treat  many ailments and disorders. Approved by the national health service it is certified exceptional first-grade by the health ministry.

Abano Terme’s muds are osmosis muds made of clay, specifically taken from a location on the Euganean Hills featuring an inorganic base that includes  microflora, algae, diatoms, protozoa, bacteria, and single-mineral plant based compounds of different types deriving mainly from the stage of aging of the mud themselves.

The water is the unique hyper-thermal salso-bromo-iodic water, from the source rich in chemical and physicochemical properties (link water and thermal water sourced story).

The thermal water not only mineralizes the mud but contributes to its aging with an additional contribution of microorganisms and algae.

Mud therapy is recommended not only as a therapy, but also as a prevention treatment for younger people. A source of mental and physical well-being that is all-natural and fully bio-compatible.

The main benefits of thermal mud

  • It stimulates the production  “natural cortisone” with an anti-inflammatory effect
  • it stimulates the production of endorphins which helps to better endure pain
  • It stimulates the immune system through the thermal stress induced by the thermal mud
  •  Effective against rheumatic disorders: osteoarthritis and other degenerative, extra-articular rheumatism
  • Effective against skin disorders: psoriasis, eczema and atopic dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis
  •  Proven anti-inflammatory, analgesic, muscle relaxant, to protect cartilage and to promote restructuring, draining and stimulating the metabolic processes and resistance to pathogens.

Thermal mud is also used in aesthetics thanks to its ability to promote detoxification and cleansing of the skin by absorbing toxins and waste, leaving a hydrated, soft and smooth skin.

The unique properties of thermal mud with a high concentration of active substances make this therapeutic treatment truly unique.

The primary properties are

  • Heat capacity that is the power of accumulation or dispersion of heat when in contact with the skin.
  • Absorption due to a spontaneous physical process of osmosis, under which mineral substances are absorbed by the skin and particles of water and fat dissipate (which is why the thermal mud treatments can be used generously in the aesthetic field ).

The outward passive transfer process is an important phenomenon in biology. The degree of plasticity that ensures the ability to adhere to the surface of the body respect to the number and size of solid components.

The studies and the most recent findings on the pharmacological properties of mud confirm without a doubt that they are ideal for use in treating: arthritis, osteoarthritis , gout , injury, fractures, and skin diseases and they are particularly effective against inflammations of the musculoskeletal system such as joint arthritis, tendinitis, muscle pain and inflammation.

What they say about us

è stata appena una scappatina ma né valsa la pena, un tre stelle di tutto rispetto trovandosi in pieno centro, nella zona pedonale, con il suo parcheggio privato e parcheggiatore non è da tutti, alla reception siamo stati accolti con gentilezza...

Posizione centrale, personale molto disponibile anche in un periodo notoriamente problematico, la struttura ben curata anche se necessita ove possibile di qualche rinfrescata. La piscina termale sempre alla temperatura giusta. Ottima organizzazione reparto fanghi.
