I slide gently into the warmth of the moor. This envelops me like a pleasant cocoon. I hadn't imagined a peat pack like that. During our stay in Gräflicher Park Grand Resort we were allowed to test a peat pack. As you have to imagine Moorbad and peat pack, I show you therefore here.
Moor bath and peat pack in the Gräflicher Park Grand Resort
A moor bath and moor pack in the Gräflicher Park Bad Driburg in Nordrhein-Westfalen is just one of the wellness offers in the spa area of the hotel. Our tour of the Castle Park led us through the English landscape park. We discovered both the labyrinth and colorful tulip beds. In the spa area we see the new Ayurveda center. Next to it is the therapy center with its treatment rooms. Adjacent to this is the resort's own moor. The natural bog lies outside the formal part of the park. From there, the therapy center obtains the fresh moor for its moor bath.
During our visit to one, we saw how healing moor can be Moor healer in Anthering near Salzburg experience. There we discovered how Moor is used culinary. In Bad Driburg, we get to know the outer application of the mud bath and peat pack in the therapy center. These applications are open to hotel guests. Day visitors can also use them.
This is how mud baths and peat packs work
Before our visit, I had tried to find out information on how a peat pack runs. However, I found no satisfactory answers. So I was curious about what to expect. When you walk through the mud bath, you first show us what a mud bath looks like.
The mass in the metal bathtub is black and thick. There is a glass of water on the edge of the tub together with two white towels. A look into the bathtub shows that these do not remain white. Anyone who takes a mud bath lies in the liquid moor for about 12 minutes. “Afterwards you feel as if you've had a few hours of fieldwork behind you,” laughs our companion. “Mud baths are exhausting.” Afterwards there is a shower. Then you should rest to regenerate your strength.
In a peat pack, you lie in black soil
I still do not know how our peat pack will run. I imagine the moor will be placed in a clean package. Wallowing in a black broth is not necessarily my idea of wellness. However, my expectations are suddenly destroyed when I see the clinical treatment room.
A film is spread out on a simple couch. Below are several blankets. "Take your clothes off," comes our therapist's instruction. She takes a bucket of bog and spreads it thickly at the top of the bed. â € œThe bog is warmed to 46 degrees Celsius. Sit on the lounger and lie down on the moor with your back. she guides me. â € œOh, â € I think. â € œThatâ € ™ s how I wallow in the dirt.â € But now I have got involved. Then I can endure the ritual all over myself.
She wraps me in the blankets. â € œYou will be lying there for twenty minutes. Then I'll be back.â €
Warm moor is doing well
At first I was afraid that the bog would be too warm to be comfortable, so I quickly realized that was not the case. On the contrary! It does not take long and I nestle into the warm mass of the moor. It creates a comfortable feeling. Peat packs also help with back problems and osteoarthritis. But since I do not have either, I can just enjoy the comfort of being in the moor. It does not take long and I drift away into deep relaxation.
After twenty minutes our therapist peels me out of my packaging. After a shower, I am again wrapped in warm sheets and allowed to rest for another twenty minutes.
Even if the peat pack initially takes a bit of effort, I would do it again at any time. The pleasant warmth and the velvety feeling of the moor on the skin ensure a real pleasure experience.
