I was wondering if anyone had ever did the full body mud bath. I have never been to a spa of any kind. But I just wonder if the mud bath felt good or oowwee.
Mine was a little different from @pthomas59. It was a mud wrap, so you still shower first, but they apply the mud mixture all over then wrap you up in plastic type foil (I really don't know what it was). Let you marinate for about 30-45 minutes, then they remove the foil and you go shower yourself off. It was everywhere but probably not nearly as intrusive as the mud bath. Skin felt lovely for a few days afterward.
I have done the mud bath in Calistoga CA twice as part of a spa pckage that includes a bath & back scrub first, then laying in soft ashy and peaty sulphuric lava mud with natural geothermally heated spring water, then a shower, blanket wrap and massage. Feels absolutely marvelous and it's kind of fun.
