Druskininkai is Lithuania’s most beloved spa resort town with white mud. Its relaxing atmosphere permeates all hotels, restaurants, cafés, and activities.
What is the effect of the white mud? During the procedure it affects the biggest human organ – the skin, and at the same time all the body tissues and organs. The skin has a lot of nerve endings, sensitive to pressure, pain and temperature. During the course of the procedure, the information received through the skin is transferred over the nervous fibre to the brain, processed and sent to the internal organs. This improves blood flow and metabolism, the body begins to perspire, harmful material is excreted, body temperature increases.
During the course of the procedure, the white mud exerts some pressure, creating friction between the mud and the skin, and therefore there is an effect of micro (mechanical) massage. When it sticks to the skin, it in a sense ‘glues’ to itself dead cells, bacteria, harmful material, also in such a way it cleans the skin and the body. It also moistens the skin, protecting it from drying and ageing.
Depending on the temperature of the white mud (thermal effect), the skin absorbs from it biologically active material, which resembles vitamins and hormones, and microelements. This causes bodily inflammatory processes to slow down or stop completely, functions of main bodily glands (thyroid, genital, pituitary, adrenal) activate, immunity strengthens.
This shows that white mud affects all of the body, causing complex processes and thus improving its resistance, and initiating the processes of recovery.
The main therapeutic effects of white mud: recovery, improvement of immunity, inhibition of scar formation, anti-bacterial, soothing, reduction of blood clot, anti-cellulitis.
