Mud Therapy

Healthy Mind in a Healthy Body

This valuable natural care is the perfect mixture of a solid component, such as the clay, of a liquid, such as water containing sodium bicarbonate Fluoro of Fordongianus , and of a biological, such as microorganisms.

The clay is immersed in special tanks and is held in continuous contact with the thermal water that flows at a temperature of 52 ° C, in a constant exposure to sunlight for a period of 6-7 months.

These are the conditions for the occurrence of the maturation process of the mud. The clay changes its chemical and physical characteristics, increasing its plasticity and the rate of heat retention, and making them also suitable for the development of micro-algae (diatoms and cyanobacteria) present in the ecosystem of Fordongianus and producing glycolipid substances of considerable anti-inflammatory and analgesic activity, characterized by the absence of side effects even after repeated treatments.

Sardegna Grand Hotel Terme has its own spa center inside the hotel and can be reached directly from the rooms with two dedicated lifts and a corridor that leads directly to the Thermal Centre.
