Cover with cling film or compress paper and a wool or cotton blanket. Leave on 30-60 minutes and rinse with warm water. 10-12 applications, every day or every other day, preferably before bed time. Add some Rapan Salt to the mud (a 10% water solution) to increase the effect.
Spread 150-250g of softened Rapan Mud over a piece of cotton material, tie it up at the top. Warm it up to 45-55°C. Apply to affected area for 15-20 minutes, 10-15 applications, once every day or every other day.

Add 2 kg of Rapan mud to warm bath water (38-40°C). Add 0.5 kg of Rapan Salt. Stir the solution. Stay in the bath for 20-30 minutes, depending on your level of tolerance and health condition. Make sure you feel comfortable with the water temperature and during taking the bath. For health maintenance - take once a week. To relieve aches/pains - when needed.
N.B. Muds and clays can block drains, so make sure you stir the water properly when draining the bath.
Rheumatism, arthritis, muscle aches:
Warm up Rapan Mud to 38-40°C and spread over the affected joints, spine, knees, feet, hands and elbows. Cover with a blanket, so that the body can absorb the mud's properties. Have a warm bath (with Rapan salt) or shower, which has relaxing, analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects and which also provide the cartilages with salts.
