Hot Rock Spa

Leaf’s treatment techniques

Breaking a Russian Bania ceremony into procedures and vaping techniques is just as pointless as breaking music down to the notes. The sauna ceremony is an integral symphony, and the maximum effect is achieved by alternating the necessary procedures and techniques, at the judgment of the Sauna Master. Sauna treatment is more art than trade and it required a lot of experience and continuous interaction between the customer and Sauna Master. 

Although, we listed below common techniques of Hot Leave Massage to refute the prejudice that the bathing procedure consists of the ruthless beating of the patient. Such vulgar approach we have seen in one of the well-known spa center close to Ottawa and we want to ensure the readers of our website that that primitive “Russian sauna” has nothing in common with the highly enjoyable, healthy, and exciting Bania treatment we offer.
