This treatment is inspired by a very old style of Russian massage known as Banya Venik. The ‘venik’ are bunches of light tree branches that are oak, white birch or sometimes eucalyptus that are softened in warm water. Traditionally these branch bunches are gently and rhythmically bounced or rubbed along the body as part of the massage experience.
Banya Venik is a hot type of massage that helps to relax muscles and ease joint pain. It also is known to clean the skin and accelerate healing in the body.
