Enjoy mud bath at Thap Ba Hot Springs

The Thap Ba Hot Springs Center, located behind the Ponagar Tower, claims to be the first in Vietnam to offer hot spring and mud bathing.

The inorganic mud comes from rocks and volcanic ash and is claimed to be both effective physical therapy and a cure for complexion problems. Proponents of hot spring baths also say they help cure inflammations and fix endocrine disorders.

The mud used at the center is pumped up from underground into small pools then mixed with mineral water piped in from the Vinh Phuong Commune some four kilometers away.

Before immersion in the mud, visitors are advised to bathe in hot water. The mineral water can be as hot as 40 degrees Celsius before it is sprayed onto guests

After bathing, guests enter wooden tubs and soak in the mud before taking a long sun bath that bakes the mud into a crusty shell. The mud-bather then drops back into the some mineral water for a much-needed cleansing.

To achieve high efficiency mud bath, do not shower with cold water, and especially the shower with soap will wash away layers of mud minerals remaining on the skin, reducing the effectiveness of mud. In people with acute heart failure, while soaking the body can cause up reactions such as fatigue, stress, insomnia, dizziness. It should be noted temperature, bath time a different person. After each soaking the whole body should dry and rest 10-20 minutes
