Today from the precious waters of the “La Rita” spring natural muds are obtained, rich in active elements and endowed with extraordinary therapeutic properties. Our muds, matured in thermal water for at least 6 months, are in fact particularly effective in the treatment of arthro-rheumatic diseases and in the recovery of joint function.

They also have a trophic effect linked to the heat-induced vasodilation which is a real panacea for traumatic pathologies and for extra articular rheumatism. Finally, they favor the resolution of localized rheumatism (peri-arthritis, tendinitis, bursitis, etc.), as well as traumatic pathologies affecting tendons, joints and muscles.

Each mud therapy session involves 3 distinct moments:

1 – Mud application

Il fango si applica a circa 38-42 gradi sulla cute, evitando la zona toracica anteriore, il capo e la zona pubica. La durata varia da 15 a 20 minuti.

 2 – The bath

At the end of the mud treatment, the staff takes care of having the patient take a hot shower and immersing it in the thermal bath at a temperature of 37 ° C for a time of 8 – 10 minutes.

3 – Sweat reaction

After the bath the patient, dried with warm cloths and well covered, remains 15/20 minutes at rest for the sweating reaction induced by the mud and the bath.
