The Advantage Of Heat

The advantage of the Banya is the way the heat is increased and the humidity is adjusted. In a well heated Banya, the temperature (moisture and heat) is increased by pouring small amounts of water on hot rocks on the stove, which will create the steam and begin to open the pores of the skin. Once you start to perspire, the whisks of oak/birch leaves are taken out of the water, shaken above the stove to warm the branches, and used to gently stroke, brush and tap the body from neck to toes, followed by a honey rub to draw out toxins to soften and condition the skin. This therapy has both antiseptic and detoxifying qualities.

Summer Banya Snapshot Facts
  1. What most people don’t know is the benefits of Banya therapy are dramatically increased during the summer season, especially when it comes to cleansing, rejuvenation, detox and dramatically enhanced heat tolerance.
  2. The metabolic demands of a Banya session are used to gradually train the body so it adapts to increased heat. This improves the surface circulation and opens the skin to increase its natural ability to detox and also enhances the ability of the skin, pores, and circulation to cool the body. In addition, the body metabolism adapts and becomes more efficient at dealing with the heat through improved tolerance and cooling mechanisms the body employs to maintain homeostasis.
  3. Summer is also a great time to open and relax the muscles. Being a state with so many outdoor recreational activities, we become more active during warmer months so our muscles need extra warming, stretching, and relaxing. Many of us are also spending time on the spring cleaning of our homes and taking care of our yards and gardens. Most of us are aware that it is easier to stretch and relax the muscles when we are enjoying a sunny day. The Banya accelerates this effect and following that with a message is an excellent healthy restorative for muscles and relaxation.
