Moor Therme Mud Detox Packs by Torf are a convenient, therapeutic way to enjoy the benefits of moor mud therapy without the mess of a mud bath. Contains 20 small size packs - 5.5 x 14.5 inches.
Torf Moor Therme packs are made from natural therapy Moor Mud (Balneopeat) and a small amount of Bohemian Black natural clay. The clay acts as a binding agent to hold the moor mud together and also as an absorbent of toxins. Moor mud has a number of actions and properties. In brief, these actions stimulate blood flow, draw toxins, provide nutrients and provide deep consistent heating.
Stimulating blood flow is necessary when a patient or client complains of muscle stiffness, fatigue, weakened immune function, chronic pain, muscle spasms, cold extremities, chronic injury, poor healing tissues and postworkout soreness.
A lack of blood flow to an area leads to poor oxygenation delivery, poor metabolite removal (such as carbon dioxide, urea, lactic acid), poor nutrient delivery and poor delivery of immune cells. Over time, these problems may lead to joint degeneration, pain, stiffness, cancer, malnutrition and chronic disease.
Moor Mud is rich in humic and fulvic acids, which in Nature provide the vehicle for delivery of minerals and other nutrients. They also have chelatic properties and form strong bonds with heavy metals and toxins to make them impossible for tissues to absorb.

Note: For patients with hypertension, mud packs are welcome as symptoms may be relieved locally with a mud pack application since bathing in hot water may be contraindicated.
Contraindications: Serious disorders of the central nervous system, acute urethrocystitis, pregnancy, decompensated cardiopathy, hypertension, serious circulatory disorders, fever, serious inflammatory skin diseases, heat sensitivity, open skin injury, bleeding, oncoids (if there are any complications consult with a physician).
Heating: Torf hot / cold packs are designed to be heated in hot water in a hydrocollator unit or a family size roaster (about 18 quarts). These packs are meant to be heated in a heating pack. They are not intended to be heated in a microwave or oven. This will ruin the covering and unevenly heat the peat.
On the Body: Always use thermometer to check heating water temperature! Do not freeze the pack! Peat contains water which would freeze after prolonged exposure to freezing temperatures causing the pack become stiff.
After the initial warming to body temperature, place the mud pack, mesh side down, on the treatment site*. HydroPack/heating pack (blue/sold separately) is heated to 50° C (or cooled in refrigerator) and placed on the top of mud pack. Client is then covered with blanket for comfort. Treatment time is the same for the local cold treatment - 20 minutes. Longer than 20 minutes can fatigue the patient or create a healing response which is undesirable.
* Do not leave the patient unattended. The mud pack can become hot and burn the patient. Place two layers of towels between a heating pack and the mud pack if the patient feels too much heat. If the mud pack gets too hot, simply remove the mud pack and heating pack from the patient. After a few seconds, reapply the mud pack and heating pack. However, add another towel between the heating pack and the mud pack.
Torf HydroPack Heat Packs also available here. Peat is known for its capacity to retain heat. These heating packs are filled with over one inch thick of peat. Not only does the peat provide heat for a long duration, but its pure weight adds therapeutic value. In order for the patient to receive a proper treatment, the heating pack must be heavy enough to lay equally across the patient's skin. This way, the patient is assured even coverage and a good outcome.
