Every culture, every civilization throughout time has had a special connection to water, and to the ritual of the bath. Probably the best known is the Roman civilization, which built entire cities around “the baths”. The Japanese held many spiritual beliefs that bathing was a cleansing of the mind as well as the body, and it was a spiritual act, connecting the bather with nature. Turkish baths, an ancient tradition, are currently enjoying a renewed popularity in spas, and have become a delightful treat for those lucky enough to find a steamy location. In an ideal world, we would all be transported regularly to a healing place where we could be detoxified, massaged, and have all our aches and pains soothed by trained therapists.
When you can’t get to the spa for a professional treatment (or in between treatments!), you can create a blissful healing experience at home, supplementing your self-care regimen. A nice warm bath is a lovely soothing thing at any time, but the addition of a Moor Spa Herbal Bath to your routine can bring health and wellness benefits that may not have occurred to you.
Moor mud, an organic peloid created over time by the gradual transformation of herbs and plants, ripens into a rich dark magma containing an array of trace elements, essential oils, minerals and other organic nutrients. These substances are easily absorbed (bio-available) by the body in the presence of water through the simple process of osmosis, and enable the body to rebalance its systems. In addition to balancing your system, the moor compound is highly anti-inflammatory, promoting circulation, bringing relief from pain, and helping to treat skin problems such as psoriasis and eczema. It is also highly absorbent of body wastes and other toxic substances that have found their way into your system, making it an ideal medium for facilitating detoxification. This results in a cleaner, better balanced body, which means a healthier, and happier person.
Some days we can take the time to honour the process, and give the body all the space it needs to de-stress, and some days time will only allow for the briefest respite from the hustle and bustle. With whatever time you have, though, it’s possible to create a bath ritual to enhance wellness.
When used for therapeutic purposes, a full course of 21 baths is recommended, to be taken every other day, ideally the last thing at night. Whether you choose a Moor bath as part of your healing regimen or simply to support your health and wellness goals, use this time to learn to trust and listen to your body. Allow yourself to be cleansed inside and out, eliminating mental stagnation and negativity. Feel tension, worry and anxiety slip into the water, and surround yourself with light, joy and love.
The only contraindication to Moor Hydrotherapy is uncontrolled high blood pressure. Please consult your physician prior to beginning treatment. In most cases, the Moor hydrotherapy will be very beneficial.
