Myllytalo's range of wellbeing services also includes natural and deeply restorative peat treatments. The peat we use in our peat treatments is @lehtopeatoy's so-called 'treatment peat', which is around 5000 years old. The peat has been used therapeutically for a thousand years, so it's not exactly a new invention. The peat used at the mill is 100% natural, with nothing added or removed. The peat is carefully examined before it is used for treatment and its purity is verified by hygiene tests.
The peat treatment is carried out on a treatment table with a warm base. The peat mats (5 pieces) are heated to 45°C and then placed on the back and legs. The weight of each pad is 3 kg, so in addition to relaxing the body, they have a grounding, weight-bearing effect. A warm blanket is placed over the safety baths and relaxing music can be played in the background according to the client's wishes.
Massage can also be combined with the peat treatment. The massage is carried out by alternately removing the heat packs from the area to be massaged. The head, hands, neck, shoulders, back and legs are treated in a holistic, gentle massage. The treatment ends with a few minutes of silence, during which time you gradually return to the present moment.
After both deep relaxation treatments, it is a good idea to sit down for a while and enjoy the fresh water in peace and quiet. Just be and breathe. Here and now.
