What is Pelotherapy?
By Dr Kathy Veon - Your Orlando Area Holistic Doctor

PelotherapyCation Mud Therapy is also known as Pelotherapy and is the medicinal use of clays, minerals, and other ‘earth materials’ as an external poultice for healing purposes. Therapeutic clays exhibit absorption, adsorption, and ionic exchange actions which make them great for detoxing specific areas of the body. 

Pelotherapy has been used for thousands of years in many cultures as a powerful healing modality, has been rigorously scientifically researched, and is more widely accepted in Europe for its pain-relieving benefits.

Pelotherapy (Medicinal Mud Therapy) for Pain Relief and Healing of Energy Blockages

Pelotherapy By Dr Kathy VeonAccording to Chinese Medicine theory, the overall health of the body, mind, emotions, and spirit depends on the healthy and balanced flow of vital force or ‘Chi’, which also plays an important role in moving the fluids of the body. Many external and internal stressors can negatively impact the healthy flow of vital force. 

This blog article will focus on the external or ‘physical traumas’ such as surgery, car accidents, head injury, tailbone trauma, and even piercing’s and tattoos. Physical traumas at birth or early in life have even more potential to cause aberrations in the flow of vital force if not properly treated.

So What is Pelotherapy and Why is it so important?

chi and PelotherapyPelotherapy is a therapy that can be applied to ‘trauma’ sites on the body, caused by injury or surgery, to remove blockages of ‘Chi’, thereby restoring the normal flow of energy through the meridians and to all the organs and glands of the body.
For example, a person may have fallen on their tailbone as a child, but is now experiencing ‘brain fog’ or even high blood pressure or adrenal fatigue. These current health issues can be traced back to that original injury to the tailbone which, over time, blocked the Chi from moving freely through the body.
Brain Fog Issues - Pelotherapy can help
Additional examples of physical trauma that can be treated with Pelotherapy are:
  • C-section scar reflexes to the legs causing stiff swollen legs
  • Decaying molar (cavitation) reflexes to the chest causing jittery feeling and insomnia
  • Fall on hip reflexes to the stomach causing abdominal weight gain
  • Weak neck from car accident (whiplash) reflexes to the liver creating allergic reactions
  • Tattoos on back reflex to the kidneys and adrenals causing fatigue
  • C-section reflexes to the thyroid causing hypothyroid symptoms
  • Broken nose reflexes to brain causing deterioration in memory and thinking
  • Head injury / TBI from car accident leads to chronic headaches and memory issues
  • Knee injury reflexes to ovaries leading to infertility
  • Wireless watch blocks meridian pathways leading to pituitary dysfunction
Mud Cation Therapy
The application of therapeutic mud can remove toxins from the previous trauma site and restore the normal flow of Chi. The application of pelotherapy is based on Chinese Meridian Theory so it works similarly to acupuncture, but without the needles.
What is PelotherapyPelotherapy is often used in the first session after precise testing is performed to determine if it is the most appropriate therapy the body needs at that time.
Medicinal Mud / Pelotherapy is a very powerful healing modality and it’s one of my favorite therapies to offer patients for a deeper level of healing.
