Mud Baths Cost


How Much Do Mud Baths Cost?

 
 average costMedium: At Calistoga, average is $65-$90 per person 
post Post    

A mud bath is a tub of volcanic ash or mineral-infused clay mixed with warm spring water to create a soothing, reparative spa experience. The 100-degree mixture draws toxins out through pores in the skin. There are only a few true mud baths in the United States because access to volcanic ash and an abundant hot spring are required. The most widely known is Calistoga, California.

Typical costs:

  • Fees at Calistoga spas range from $65-$90 per person for a typical 60- to 90-minute bath.
  • Rates are least expensive during the middle of the week and higher on the weekend.
  • If you can't get to Calistoga, many spas offer body wraps using mineral-rich mud to detoxify the skin. Sessions are $80-$150 for 45 minutes and $100-$200 for 60 minutes.

What should be included:
  • Bathers are submerged to the neck in the bubbly brew, creating a weightlessness feeling. Mud spas typically include a hot blanket wrap afterward and access to a whirlpool or steam room. Some also include a clay or herbal facemask.
  • Discounts:
  • For a mud experience at a fraction of the cost, the Indian Springs resort[1] in Idaho Springs, Colo., sells kelp-infused mud for $10 that customers can place directly on their bodies as they sit in geothermal baths. Cost is $18-$23 per person.
Additional costs:
  • Many Calistoga spas offer massage for an additional charge as part of a package deal. A mud bath plus 30-minute therapeutic massage ranges from $110-$130.
Shopping for mud baths:
  • NapaValley.com offers a directory of Calistoga mud spas [2] .
  • For spas that offer body wraps using mud, Spa Finder Magazine offers a nationwide directory of spas[3] . Enter your city of choice then click on "mud" under the "treatments" heading.
