Modern F.X. Mayr Medicine / Detox


Normally purification and detoxification (detox) are perceived as an unpleasant process associated with discomfort and asceticism. The Lanserhof however has long since chosen a different approach.

At the beginning of the last century the Austrian naturopath and researcher Dr. Franz Xaver Mayr developed a unique method for the early diagnosis and treatment of so-called civilization diseases. Already in his time, Mayr recognised the importance of a holistic view of the organism, because the nutrient supply of our entire body takes place via the gut.

At the LANS Medicum, we offer thorough regeneration of our most important digestive system according to the six principles of modern Mayr medicine - protection, cleansing, training, substitution, exercise and soul - in an outpatient setting.

The deacidification and detoxification processes are supported by highly effective peelings, baths, wraps and massages. This detox treatment leads to a healing process of nutrition-related health problems. The detox cleansing ritual enables the body to regenerate and helps reorganise its self-healing abilities.

Depending on the arrangement with the doctor, the Mayr cure at LANS Medicum can include the following applications:

Detox cupping massage

During the cupping massage, the metabolic and blood circulation is stimulated all the way down to the inner organs - this leads to relaxing of the muscles. This procedure is followed by a massage to activate the lymphatic system.


Natural hay pack

Hay has a positive effect on the blood circulation, is immune-stimulating and relaxing. In the detoxification phase the pack of moist hay is also used as a liver wrap.


Salt peeling with bath or shower

The body peeling with sea salt leads to an increased microcirculation of the skin and ultimately to the formation of new skin cells. After the peeling, nurturing almond oil is massaged into the skin. The result is a fresh, vital and regenerated skin, leaving it tender and rejuvenated.


Vitalising cream pack

This rich cream pack cleans, tightens and nourishes. In order to respond to the needs of different skin areas, we apply different compositions. 


These various cream packs are applied to the corresponding skin parts. Afterwards, you are wrapped in a thermal blanket for approx. 25 minutes, which intensifies the effects and leaves you feeling relaxed.


Base bath

This bath de-acidifies the entire body in a pleasant way and relaxes. Since many acids are emitted through the skin, base baths are basically a detox program.


Deep massage

The massage especially works on deeper layers of the muscles and connective tissue. It serves to stimulate self-healing and relaxation.


Lymphatic drainage

Manual lymphatic drainage promotes regeneration and muscle relaxation via the vegetative nervous system. It strengthens the immune system and stimulates both metabolism and digestion.



Reflex zones are in constant interaction with the internal organs. The treatment results in an improved body feeling, strengthens the digestive system and promotes relaxation. Here, you can choose between a head reflex zone or foot reflex zone massage.


Colon Hydrotherapy

In colonic hydrotherapy, the colon is rinsed with water and thoroughly cleaned. This restores the natural intestinal motion and removes possible deposits. The application takes place in a closed system where you can lie comfortably on your back.


All applications can be booked seperately and do not have to be combined with the Mayr Kur.
