Fango pack - treatments using hot mineral mud
Using heat in treatments is a very old method, which can calm and relax as well as stimulate the metabolism and improve circulation.
The word fango originates from Italian, which means healing mud. There are two types of fango, organic and inorganic. Organic fango consists of thermal spring water, clay or mud, algae and micro organisms and needs to ripen in a basin for about three to six months. Organic fango can be reused again in the ripening process.
The inorganic healing mud is composed of volcanic rock, which is ground and mixed with thermal spring water to create a mud. This non recyclable method is the most common.
Prior to the treatment, the fango is mixed with water to create a paste and heated to forty or fifty degrees Celsius. The paste is then spread onto the sore area and wrapped tightly in towels, cling film and blankets to allow the area to warm up.
The mud retains the heat for a long time; the body starts to perspire, the blood circulates well and the body absorbs the minerals from the fango. It is also possible to add algae, which encourages the body to heal itself, giving additional relaxation.
It is recommended to have a massage after a fango treatment because the muscles are nicely loosened and it will have a greater regenerating effect on the body.
Fango packs can be used for a number of ailments, ranging from general discomfort to specific sports injuries. These include back, neck and shoulder problems, chronic joint inflammation or rheumatism. Fango packs can also sooth period pains, neurodermatitis, psoriasis or eczema.
