Rotorua is world famous for its volcanic and geothermal activity. Not only does it make for some spectacular sights but taking advantage of the health benefits from the local geothermal waters and mud pools is also a must do when visiting the area.
The benefit of mud therapy has long been celebrated around the world, from ancient societies to modern spas and health centres.
Thermal mud is full of many active minerals and antioxidants, including sulphur, calcium, sodium, and silica. The combination of the natural ingredients found in Rotorua mud is known to help rheumatic and arthritic conditions, beneficial in the treatment of acne, infection, inflammation and dermatitis and can protect the skin from damage and early aging. The warm, external application of mud can soothe muscular aches, alleviate joint stiffness and pain, and improve skin condition.
