Every time we ask a newly converted Sauna Fan to describe their first Hot Leaves experience they respond something along the lines of, “Wow! So relaxing! Unbelievable! Amazing! Alex, how are you doing that? Fkng Good!”. So, it is difficult to clearly describe the content of the Hot Leaves Treatment. In formal terms, it is intensive manipulation with bunches of leaves around your body in a hot, humid room. It involves waving, application of the branches to your body, and slight slapping, which results in the client’s euphoria, his/her exiting exclamations, happy smiles, and unconscious wish to pay enormous TIPs.

 We recorded and published many videos. Unfortunately, these videos only give a visual impression and cannot translate to what the client is feeling: excitement in every muscle, a feeling of flight, deeper breaths and fresh air in every cell on your skin. All of these sensations have a scientific explanation behind them – controlled stress, positive sensory overloading, and shifted oxygen balance. Still, the authentic Hot Leaves Treatment is more art and magic than formal procedure. Thus, you cannot find the answer before you try for yourself.

The hot leaves treatment is part of our steam room treatments. The steam room treatments are a new concept in Canada. We have promoted this service in Ontario for over 15 years (prior to 2019 we operated a Spa resort on Golden Lake), and most of our clients engaged in this service. Almost all of them became long-term clients and admirers of this ancient practice.

Category: Sauna Treatments

Our most popular and exclusive services are Steam room treatments such as the Hot Leaves massage. We are the only operator in Ottawa who provides a full range of these services.

The Hot Leaves Treatment provides intensive back relief from the shoulders to the toes. The treatment begins with contactless air waving using brooms as fans, the Sauna Master directs heat to your body to ensure even and comfortable heating. After this preheating, the hot leaf compresses are applied to your back to ensure the heat penetrates deep into all tissues. The combination of compresses and waiving is very relaxing and prepares you for the next segment of the treatment: gentle tapping. Focusing on the signals of your body and with your goals in mind, the Sauna Master uses complex percussion techniques to achieve total relaxation of all muscles and intense warming of all tissues.

During the procedure the greatest attention is given to the upper and lower back – where stress and pain are frequent in people who spend hours at a desk or driving a car. The calf muscles are thoroughly warmed and massaged to relieve spasms in this area, a common issue for people who spend extended periods on their feet.

A skilled Sauna Master can be compared to a Tai Chi Master – who performs a complex set of movements that seem chaotic to those who are unfamiliar, but in fact it is a masterful art bridging the forces of nature and the energy of the body. The sauna ritual itself is a blend of performance and natural therapy.

Category: What is a Banya?

Banya is a traditional, Northern European style Sauna, with a stove covered by heavy stones. During a Banya session, the Sauna Master splashes water on hot rocks (hence our name “Hot Rock Spa”) which produces hot steam. In the most sophisticated saunas, the stones are allocated in a special way, which allows production of different kinds of the steam – heavy and wet steam, overheated fine steam and a long-lasting gentle evaporation.

Category: What is a Banya?

This is a century old tradition of the most famous sauna treatment, often referred to as the “Sauna ceremony”.  It is a series of procedures carefully tailored to enhance your health – improve sleep, promote relaxation, releasing of tension in the muscles, eliminating back pain, cold relief and anticellulite. It takes about 2.5 hours and combines active treatments with periods of relaxation.

Category: What is a Banya?

This is the most extreme experience you can have in a steam room. This procedure can be performed both independently and as an addition to any set of procedures. The core of the process is alternating hot and ice-cold compresses which are accompanied by massage and soft kneading techniques.

The mixture of extreme temperatures creates a feeling of euphoria in the entire body and contributes to the achievement of a unique psychological state.

The procedure can be good for relieving psychological stress, increasing vitality, and increasing immunity.

This procedure is not recommended for beginners. If this is your first experience, then it is better to ask the attendant to introduce individual elements of contrast into other sets of procedures.

Among the unique features of our spa that separate us from our competition are special devices that allow us to generate different types of steam and water-steam mixtures. These vary from over-dried, fine steam to wet and heavy steam created using the surface of hot stones. During Aromatherapy sessions the Sauna Master uses different types of steam and unique mixes of herbs to create a healing environment. We usually use two or three types of broad healing tinctures to demonstrate their effect to guests. However, to achieve a special effect, such as improved sleep, stress relief or relieving cold symptoms – special mixtures can be used.

In the evening, the effect of the procedure is enhanced using light.

Although there is no physical impact on the body, this procedure contributes to the creation of a unique physical and mental state.

By influencing all perceptual systems, a controlled overload of sensory systems occurs, and this results in a state akin to euphoria.

Steam wrapping is a deep, non-contact heating procedure which usually precedes other more specific procedures. The group of guests sit on the bench while the Sauna-Master catches hot air from the top levels of the Steam room and brings the heat down to the guests, ensuring heat is delivered to each part of the body – from shoulders to toes.

Depending on the purpose of the visit, steam wraps can be combined with aromatherapy sessions or as a warmup for an intense massage therapy session.

Despite the short duration of each procedure, the positive effect of Traditional Sauna treatment is tremendous. This is achieved by the fine-tuned combination of techniques customized for the needs of each client. Well managed applications of heat can have a similar effect which may take a therapist an hour. All special treatments which require licensing, such as therapeutic massage, deep tissue massage, facial and anti-cellulite procedures are performed by qualified professionals.

The rhythm of the ceremony, the duration and intensity of the procedures are primarily based on your well-being and the session goals. Feedback from guests is important at every stage of the ceremony.

Immediate effects include: improved sleep, effective pain and strain relief in all muscles, deeply cleansed skin, the elimination of toxins from the body, stress relief and increased energy the following morning.

Many people claim that the Banya relieves the symptoms of minor illnesses such as colds, revives the muscles after tough physical exertion, and clears skin complexion. Personally, we believe that Russian sauna gives you a feeling of psychological peace and contentment as well as physical rejuvenation.
