Venik MassageJuly 7, 2022 2022-07-07 6:19
Venik is a leafy, fragrant bundle of birch, oak, eucalyptus, juniper and other tree twigs. The venik helps with muscle and joint pain. First softened in warm water. And rather than being whacked on your back in anger, they are gently and rhythmically applied. It is a popular treatment in the thousands of steam bathhouses, or “banyas”, across Russia
Venik cleans the skin, accelerates the healing of wounds and scratches…. and it smells wonderfully. Its special virtue is that it widens the small bronchi, aiding in the removal of phlegm and improves the ventilation of the lungs. The leaves contain essential oils, tanning substances and vitamins A and C.
Duration: The massage lasts 10 minutes.
