Sophie Benge set up hungarymud after experiencing the powerful effects of mud treatments at Budapest's medical spas.


"I am a fan of mud because mud works. I've recently been on a spa journey through 12 countries in central and eastern Europe and of all the therapies this region is famous for, mud is hailed again and again as a real a proposition for cure. With its medical credentials and absolute sensual pleasure, I believe it has huge scope for today's spas and for you at home.'
