Fango – Healing Clay / Hot Wrap
At our practice we use fango (healing clay) treatments with natural peloids; these consist of a mixture of fango and paraffin. The mineral content in the clay and its thermophysical properties improve blood circulation of the skin and the subcutaneous tissues.
Where a full-body fango treatment is counter indicated, or when the goal is an intensive warming treatment of only one specific area (for example in the case of respiratory diseases), a “hot wrap” can be used pending your doctor’s approval. A “hot wrap” is a cone made of towels and filled with hot water. It is then used to target specific areas of the body.
