Mud therapy is one of the oldest natural medicines known to mankind and the animal kingdom in general. In fact, reptiles, birds and mammals bathed in mud for millions of years before the first humans appeared on this planet. Healing mud or clay was known to Egyptian and Mesopotamian healers and used for various ailments, especially for diseases of the skin and joints.


In spa medicine, both balneotherapy and thalassotherapy, salt waters and their peloid or peloid products are used to treat:

  • rheumatic changes in the joints

  • inflammation in the joints and spine

  • circulatory problems of the upper and lower limbs, ischemia, ulceration

  • vascular paresis of the lower limbs

  • skin diseases.

There are hundreds of studies on the effectiveness of peloid therapy in many conditions, such as:

  • anxiety and depression

  • insomnia

  • back pain and osteoarthritis

  • fibromyalgia

  • skin diseases and dermatology

  • immune disorders and chronic inflammation


In the last few years, healing muds have become the subject of microbiome research. Thanks to new DNA sequencing techniques, the skin microbiome has been found to play a key role in the development of infection, inflammation, autoimmune diseases and cancer.


Importantly, skin microbes are becoming more resistant to antibiotics, which may be associated with the rapid development of chronic diseases around the world. Healing muds are well known for their antimicrobial properties, including antibiotic resistant strains.

The deposits from which the peloid comes from, began to form about 10 thousand. years BC, after the glacier receded. The largest amounts are found in Central and Eastern Europe - our peloid resources are famous for their purity and high quality, which is why they are referred to as the black gold of Poland.
