Moor Mud, Please

By Jennifer Mattheson

Have you ever had a day where you feel tired, sluggish, maybe you even felt sick? You feel like a rainy day even when there are no clouds in the sky. Your body feels tired, and you have unexplained aches and pains everywhere. This could be because of a buildup of toxins in your body and inflammation of sore overused muscles. If this is the case you’ll want to try body muds!

Body muds can do many things for the skin and for the body. The nutrients in the mud can nourish your skin and make it look healthy and revitalized.  The natural acids tone, clarify, and soften the skin giving it a healthy glow. It also removes impurities in the pores, shrinking them to prevent clogs, and clears away pimples and blackheads. These benefits will be greatly appreciated by clients if you add this into your massage!  There are many types of body muds.  One of the most powerful is Moor mud.

Moor mud is derived from lakes where different types of plants and herbs have been decomposing for thousands of years. Its detoxifying properties are the strongest; it can pull the most toxins from your body. It has almost no clay, unlike other muds, and is made from natural grasses, flowers, and herbs that have decomposed. It is one of the most beneficial because it also has antibiotic and anti-aging properties.

To use this in your massage routine is simple. This will also add lots of profit to your massage because it is usually expensive and the application and clean-up is time consuming. All you have to do is address an area that is in pain and apply the mud using a brush or a plastic applicator. If the entire body is in pain start with the feet where most impurities settle. After either wash off with a wash cloth and continue the massage or have the client take a short bath.

We’d love to hear from you.  What is your favorite mud experience?  This includes mud pies 😉

  1. I actually use moor mud I discovered it about a year ago my clients love It. It has so many things it helps like fibromyalgia and arthritis even helps w acne. It’s is also anti-inflammatory and they used as antibiotic in WWI and WWII. The history of this mud is amazing.

  2. I used to have this Aztec clay mud mask. It clumped up really bad, so my son and i would put it on together to play monsters, lol. I really liked this particular mud mask because it was great for sensitive skin, that’s why my son could also use it. My face would be red, but not irritated. I found it in Cushing, OK, but have been unable to find it elsewhere.

  3. My clients and I love the Moor Mud, I have used it for awhile now. I have one client that really loves this add on to her massage. The first time I gave her the option to use Moor Mud she was not buying all that I told her it would do, after the session the next evening she texted me and referred to it as the “miracle mud”, she has had a bad shoulder for several years now and just deals with it, not after this she requests Moor Mud once a month at least now. She stated that it was the first time she had been totally pain free since she could remember. My daughter has been battling acne in the last six months, has tried all that is offered on the market, none of which worked for her, even the medications from her doctor have not worked, but Moor Mud has made a big difference for her. It has been great to be able to use and see the product work on these two for certain, and great to use their stories to share with others.

  4. I have never had mud on me for spa purposes but it sounds like an interesting thing to try and do for future clients.

  5. I have never used body muds before but it sounds amazing! Who wouldnt want to feel better. I love the idea of it clearing up blackheads and removing the toxins within your body. Great Blog Jennifer, cant wait to try Mud!! 🙂

  6. I love wraps! I think that was one of my favorite things to learn when I was over at Clary going through my cosmo program. It’s just so relaxing and a bit rejuvenating. I’m excited to get started on them this week.

  7. I have only played around with the mud masks in Cosmetology school 10 years ago. I can remember it being drying to my skin,i can see it being used for oily skin since there it would be a natural absorber. I look forward to trying more of this in the future.

  8. I loved the mud wrap we did in class. It made my skin feel great and not to mention it helps to detoxify your body. I think I will add this to my menu for services because it is just a wonderful feeling with many benefits. Thanks Jennifer!!!

  9. I love the body wraps.They just make you feel amazing and refreshed after you’ve had one. I think it would make a great addition to any service. Who wouldn’t want to feel better and give it a try. I told my husband about some of the benefits of mud and he is ready to try it.

  10. iv never really been into mud, something about being dirty kinda freaks me out, but after reading the positive effects it has i might have to try it out.

  11. Ok, first of all… I loved the scrubbing and mud applying to my feet, now I would love to feel it on my back. What an experience I had during this. I enjoyed it. I felt like I was a king! 😀

  12. I really enjoyed the Aromatherapy Wrap. That was great! I do prefer to be left alone and just enjoy the heat and not receive the head and foot massage.

    l like the torso treatment better than the foot treatment because of the massage afterwards.

    All 3 treatments are something I would enjoy learning more about and doing in the future.

  13. I was so glad when I read the article because that reminded of a wonderful mud that I brought from Brazil and my daughter used for her skin. I never thought of using it for pain reliever. I will try it on my back,this weekend. I will try to buy the Mood mud, sounds amazing. Thanks for the tip.

  14. I have never tried mud. I’ve always been skeptic about it. I’m a little more interested in trying it now.

  15. I love the idea of using mud besides playing with my kids with mud pies I will try to use better mud for my face. Thanks for the tip

  16. Nice to know there is a wide variety of mud masks on the market. Its benefits are vast. Might be a tad bit messy but definitely worth trying.
