What are the different types of thermotherapy?
Thermotherapy uses different heat carriers to induce heat stimuli. Measures are often combined to achieve the desired effect. To loosen the muscles and reduce tension, heat carriers are often used after a massage. These include:
Thermotherapy with infrared:
Infrared light produces heat on the part of the body to be treated. In contrast to other forms of heat therapy, no physical heat carrier is placed directly on the skin, but only the respective part of the body is warmed with the help of the infrared lamp. The infrared light first penetrates the upper layers of the skin and then reaches deeper layers. In this way, blood circulation is stimulated and muscle relaxation is enhanced.
Natural moor is a purely natural product. It is contained in so-called mud packs, which are intended for single use. These are firmly pressed natural moor that is covered with a layer of fleece and can be applied directly to the body. During treatment with mud packs, the warmth can penetrate deep into the muscle layers, as not only the affected area is reached, but also adjacent tissue.
