Years ago, people who worked in mineral and sandy areas came to the conclusion that some of the pains can be treated with the use of desert sand. Today, sandstone clinics are active in a modern way based on the experiences of the past.
Chest pain, rheumatism, and sciatica pain are the most common causes using this technique. In this way, the individual creates a pit and placed inside it, or he covers the part of the body with the sand based on the type of illness. The heat is transferred from the sun to the human body and after a while, the heat naturally passes through the sand filter and makes it feel pleasant and desirable in the person.
Today, this method is used as a natural method in the treatment of the above diseases, and on the other hand, it is effective in attracting tourists. Abu Ali Sina writes about sand therapy and thalassotherapy in his book, “Law in Medicine”, that: “The best kind of sand to absorb moisture from the skin is the warm sand of the sea. When using sand, the body should be covered with it or spread the sand on the body. The hot sand is like the sun in terms of its benefits and in general it will dry the body more than necessary. ”
