The entire Moor Spa product line is based on the remarkable healing properties of the Austrian Deep Moor. The effects of ‘Heilmoor’ or healing moor have been known for many centuries. Probably the earliest record of its use comes from Galen and Plinius, the great medical minds from the Egyptian era, who described the use of moor deposits by the river Nile as a major healing medium.
Nearly 3,000 years ago, the Celts and Romans are known to have used moors in Austria to treat their wounded. In the 16th Century, Paracelsus, the famous alchemist, described moor as the ‘Quinta Essentia Vitae’ - he believed it was the ultimate remedy or elixir of life.
More recently, a wealth of clinical studies has been conducted on moor therapy including several by the German and Austrian Governments. As a result, hundreds of European physicians now use and recommend moor treatments.
