Hydrotherapy/Balneotherapy involve the use of water in treatments. The recuperative and healing properties of these therapies are based on their mechanical and thermal effects. The protracted application of heat, and the pressure exerted by the water carries impulses felt at the skin deeper into the body where they are instrumental in stimulating the immune system, reducing stress, invigorating circulation and digestion, encouraging blood flow and lessening pain sensitivity. In Kachina we used the acclaimed German Trautwein baths.

This residue which has very little clay is rather a fine paste easily dissolved in water and has concentrations of bio minerals, trace elements, vitamins, amino acids, plant hormones, and fatty acids, easily absorbed by the skin. Pelloids contained in the Moor Mud have a smaller molecular size than the pores in our skin so that they are easily able to penetrate the skin entering the blood stream where they work their magic. Because of this it is very effective on all skin care and also promotes, circulation, stimulates the immune system, promotes muscular relaxation, relieves pain, breaks down fat cells and detoxifies. The Moor Mud used in Kachina is not chemically altered but taken directly from its source in Europe.
