The mild, stimulating climate of the Baltic Sea and treatments involving medicinal chalk and healing muds have been attracting health-conscious visitors to Sellin for more than a century.
Rügen's lovely mild climate works wonders on asthma, bronchitis, high blood pressure, rheumatism, skin conditions, musculoskeletal issues and other health problems. But Sellin is sure to inspire you to embrace life no matter who you are. Rügen medicinal chalk, which first appeared here during prehistoric times, is enough to have that effect too. This natural material with a fine porous structure stores heat, cleanses the skin and has a detoxifying effect. Just like mud baths, fango wraps and other peloid treatments, this local remedy is used in wraps, baths and scrubs to unleash a soothing and invigorating effect.
