Earthy Experiences

Mud and clay treatments have been around for a millennia. Uncover the history and the pleasure behind mud therapy.

The tradition of slathering mud on the body goes back centuries. Cleopatra believed black mud scooped from the bottom of the Dead Sea made her more beautiful, and the Romans discovered the healing benefits of soaking in warm mud as far back as 120 B.C. As Nicole Kiger, head esthetician at Mepal Spa in New Marlborough, Massachusetts says: "Mud is the ancestor of all body treatments"

Today, the mud bath remains a staple at spas all over the world. It's a tradition practiced in Japan, California, Europe, and New Zealand, basically, wherever both hot springs and volcanic ash appear.

Why has mud enjoyed such staying power? Well, to begin muds possess numerous healing attributes. Mud baths have a long history as a natural cure, and they are said to relax muscles, soothe body aches, improve circulation, and tone the skin. "Mud is such a wonderful element from the earth. It's got everything, vitamins, biominerals, amino acids, and hormones from plants. And it absorbs into the skin very easily" says Sharron Hopley, the Gerente de Spa at Mexico's Maroma Resort and Spa.

In fact, muds and clays are used extensively in European spa clinics to treat everything from arthritis and joint problems to skin diseases and menopausal issues. Mud baths are believed to help clear metabolic pathways, improve waste elimination, and boost cell oxygenation.

But the most simple reason to jump in the mud is because it's so relaxing. Held afloat in the soft, sultry substance, all worries melt away. Warmed between 102 and 108 degrees, mud causes the body to perspire, which cleanses the pores, flushes out impurities, and leaves the skin feeling soft and renewed. Plus, mud retains heat, which means you can enjoy a toasty soak longer than a mere bubble bath.

Of course, you don't have to have a tub of the stuff to reap the benefits of mud and clay. At Kinan Spa at Maroma Resort and Spa, guests slather on a variety of muds from the spa's unique Mud Bar. Originally created for guests who were shy about having their bodies touched, this do-it-yourself treatment has become extremely popular. "People apply the mud to their face, body, and hair before they step in the steam room" says Hopley. "It's fantastic to do before a treatment, because it draws out all those toxins and really feeds your skin"

A good clay mask deeply cleanses the complexion, leaving it radiant and refined. "It's very detoxifying, that's the biggest deal with clay. And it's an antioxidant, meaning it rids the skin of free radicals, which cause the skin to age" says Annika Jackson, the general manager of Mii amo in Sedona, Arizona. Psoriasis, eczema, and extremely dry skin are actually helped by a clay mask, you would think it would be drying, but it's actually very beneficial for dry skin.

Adds dermatologist Ellen Gendler, "mud is used for acne to absorb oil...
