Clay Treatment

Clay Treatment

 

the use of special varieties of clay for therapeutic purposes. It is based on the thermal as well as mechanical action of clay on body tissues. Dry clay is mixed with hot water or a 10 percent salt solution until an even, thick, malleable mass is produced for application to a part of the body surface, or a more liquid consistency for general and local bathing. Clay treatment is used for chronic and subacute arthritis and spinal diseases of various origin (except tuberculosis), radiculitis, plexitis, neuritides, neuralgias, and so on. Contraindications are the same as for mud treatment.
