Russian Banyas were recently singled out by Spafinder.com as one of the top global spa and wellness trends, driven by an overall desire for ethnic, authentic treatments that extend beyond traditional Western spa experiences.
Banya No 1 is an authentic Russian Banya in London offering traditional steam sauna, organic Spa and Wellness treatments and with a delightful lounge bar offering Russian delicacies.
Unlike conventional saunas, a Russian Banya generates high levels of steam as water is splashed onto a tonne of cast iron heated to 700°C inside an authentic brick furnace. Although the banya’s temperature (70°C) is lower than in a sauna the high levels of steam cause the body to sweat profusely and then detoxify.
Parenie is a traditional and invigorating thermal treatment using venik – a leafy and fragrant bundle of birch, oak or eucalyptus twigs. It boosts blood circulation and relieves tension and stress. This is followed by a stimulating dip into the plunge pool. The contrast causes release of adrenalin and stress hormones and immense invigoration that follows.
Banya No 1 promises an experience that goes beyond that of a conventional sauna or spa, which includes authentic food and drinks.
