This residue transformed over several years to fine paste which contains fulvic acids, vitamins, amino acids, plant hormones, humic acids in a form which could be easily absorbed by human body. The mud has chelatic properties which enables its top layer to filter out impurities/pollutants and preserve purity of the mud.

Immerse in natural peat in beautiful bogland
There are two types of bog in Ireland 1) Raised bogs which are found in the midlands and 2) Blanket bogs which are found mainly along the counties on the Wild Atlantic Way, most developed in Kerry, Clare, Galway, Mayo, Sligo and Donegal. These blanket bogs are globally the rarest of all and Ireland possesses 8% of the world’s total. They are generally found in wet or upland areas and their depth is usually 2 to 3 metres. The bog grows, but only at a millimetre per year, so 2 metres can take around 2000 years. Peat used in Balneotherapy should be mined from the deepest level in these bogs.
“Paracelsus a Swiss German physician described peat as the “Quinta Essentia Vitae” (the quintessence of life).”
We want our facility to be a unique experience. It is built on the blanket bog of Kilcummin and it is outdoors so that the experience is very natural and invigorating. However we do heat up the peat so that you can relax and enjoy while immersed in the peat tub. You can also experience a bucket shower of peat beforehand just to get the adrenaline going.
It took thousands of years for our peatlands to develop the deposits of 1.5 to 2.3 metres which is the average depth of Irish bogs. It was created from sphagnum mosses rich in trace elements that are good for you. Health spas around Ireland and the world use it for body treatments.
