An exotic bath is a group of original saunas, but the design has its own characteristics. In addition, such saunas can be equipped with unusual heat transfer or additional features. But despite the originality, the main role of each is healing and relaxation.
Bath machines or bath carts, as they were called before, are peculiar structures used by men and women to relax water masses in the 17th-18th centuries. These devices made it possible to observe the decency limits of the time and to hide bathers from the opinions of strangers.
The bathing machine is a covered booth. Its walls were made of wood or tarpaulin. A tourist entered dressed. There he took it off and put on a bathing suit. After that, the horses pulled a kind of trailer into the water, where the stall turned and covered the bathtub. The tourist went down from the bathing machine into the water. When he was ready to return to the shore, he signaled with the help of a flag.
After some time, the cabins were renovated. There was no floor in them. And on the famous resort were prepared special laws for the origin. There are still bathing carts on some beaches today. They are used as beach huts.
The beneficial effects of buzzing bees on the human body have long been known. Bees and humans have similar lifestyles. Therefore, baths based on bee treatment improve tone, relieve fatigue, and treat neurological diseases and genital problems.
Living is a small house, which is usually clad on both sides with firewood. Three shelves are installed on the inside and fine metal mesh is attached to them.
The operations are performed in a supine position. Bees fly over the grate, so you are suddenly protected from the sting. The session lasts about 40-60 minutes.
During this time you not only hear a soothing boiling sound, but you also breathe in the smell of pollen which also has a positive effect on your well-being. To complete the entire course and a tangible recovery, you should go through approximately 10 rounds of bee treatment.
There is only one contraindication to visiting a bee bath – an allergy to honey. Suffering from other health problems can and should even be performed.
The pyramid bath is also called the Penta sauna. It got this name because of a special image. Such a bath is a direct sauna, which is made from healing Siberian cedar wood. Its wood is known for its beneficial properties: when heated, it releases, which have a strengthening, anti-inflammatory, and bactericidal effect on the human body.
The pyramid bath heats up to +65 degrees and the biologically active substances of the cedar begin to have an active effect on pathogens. In such a bath, only one person is placed in a sitting position.
The Penta sauna looks like a miniature pyramid with five corners. This shape was not chosen by chance. It has been known since ancient times that ordinary geometric shapes (sacred) can form their own “microcosm”. The movement of the energy flows takes place in it. When used properly, they have a positive effect on human energy and health.
Sauna in a bag
In Russia, not only the traditional wet sauna has long been popular. The sauna bag is exotic and useful. It is completely environmentally friendly, has almost no contraindications, and is combined with a kind of aromatherapy. It is recommended to visit such a steam room for people suffering from arthritis and schizophrenia. The main advantage of both birch and straw baths in the bag is the ability to organize them yourself. You can buy the treatment bag or sew it from the canvas. You can use it many times by washing it in warm soapy water after each cycle.
Bath in a bag with birch leaves
To make such a steam bath, you need fresh birch leaves. Before the meeting, you need to sort them out and make sure that there are no branches that can scratch the skin.
The operations are performed in the following order:
- Put the leaves in a canvas bag.
- We heat the contents with hot steam.
- We wash thoroughly and dry ourselves.
- We climb into the bag for half an hour.
- At the end of the session, wipe the skin with a dry, soft cloth.
- We rinse the body with a decoction of herbs.
When you are in a bag, a kind of climate is created there. Due to the healing properties of the birch leaves, the rest of the person’s well-being improves. Birch contains many types of tannin that have a positive effect on the body. A visit to such a sauna has a beneficial effect on the skin and the nervous system. You can use flower hay instead of leaves.
Sprinkle sauna in a bag
Ordinary straw is used to organize this type of steam bath.
The session takes place in the following order:
- We heat the straw in the bag with steam up to +60 degrees.
- We immerse ourselves in the mixture up to the neck and sit for 20 minutes.
- After the operation, rinse your body with the herbal extract.
During the session, late sweats are evenly absorbed by the straw, which has an antibiotic effect. After the procedure, the water balance normalizes the intake of herbal or green tea, and vegetable broth.
In Japan, it is customary not to use hay and leaves for bathing purposes, but cedar wood from cedar wood. They are placed in a container that is rectangular in shape. The sawdust heats up to +45 degrees. The residence time in it is 15-20 minutes.
Many variations of traditional folk and exotic bath are an indication that people at any time and wherever they live respected saunas. After all, basking in warm air currents is not only fun but also very beneficial for health. And the accompanying aspects of the procedure are a good supplement that helps to relax and improve your health.
