Parenie – Invigorating Thermal Treatment
The key signature treatment using leafy and fragrant bundles of birch, oak and eucalyptus twigs (called Venik) performed in a steam room.
Venik massage boosts blood circulation, improves the immune system and relieves muscle tension & stress.
This process is quite intense and it’s not about slashing you with oak and birch leaves, but rather working the steam around you to warm you up so deep that you feel the need to plunge into the chilled water afterwards. The contrast causes release of adrenalin and stress hormones and immense invigoration that follows. It boosts your blood circulation, relieves tension and stress and it’s a very good cardio-vascular exercise. After the treatment you may also feel a tingling sensation and even slightly light headed.
