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