Tucked away in Shoreditch is the traditional Russian Spa, Banya No. 1 offering a truly authentic take on the Banya experience. Guests are welcomed by wood-adorned rooms, fresh scents of eucalyptus and the soothing sound of trickling water, creating an ‘earthy’ ambiance. Unlike traditional saunas, the Banya surrounds clients with high levels of steam as water is splashed onto cast iron heated to 700 degrees inside a brick furnace. Donning a felt hat, which protects your head and hair from the intense heat, feel your muscles relax under the therapeutic heat. Once guests start to feel overheated, stand under an ice-cold shower or take a dip in an icy plunge pool to boost circulation, which helps relieve muscle tension, stress and joint pain. Guests can either head to the social area, for a drink or snack, before heading back to the Banya. Guests also get the opportunity to undergo a parenie treatment. Parenie is a traditional and invigorating thermal treatment which involves a leafy bundle of birch, oak or eucalyptus twigs (called venik) being brushed over the body, increasing to a gentle thrashing. This treatment enhances the Banya experience by shifting steam onto the skin, while the plants release essential oils. The oils also have anti-anti-inflammatory effects, which are believed to calm the nervous system and help reduce blood pressure. Enjoy the steamy environs of the Banya for two in this three-hour experience and feel the magic of the parenie-venik massage. An unforgettable experience leaving you feeling relaxed and revived.
