Parenie - Spa treatment - Banya No.1 - Chiswick

This is the key treatment common to all banya experiences; if you are going to have only one treatment at Banya No.1 – Chiswick then make it Parenie.

Parenie is an invigorating, traditional thermal treatment which should be enjoyed after first using the steam rooms to warm up and acclimatise. Lying in a prepared steam room, the therapist uses Venik* to waft hot steam down onto, and around, your body. The Venik is also used for massaging the body by brushing, and is an amazing treatment for the skin. (It is also the perfect preparatory treatment for a body scrub or body mask).

It is not a harsh treatment (as people sometimes think before trying it), but it is intense. It is more about how the steam is directed and controlled to heat your body deep within, which then contrasts with the chilled water that follows.

After the steam treatment, a plunge into chilled water (or a good dunking from the ice-water bucket) will release adrenalin and stress hormones, and generate a feeling of intense invigoration.

Parenie massage has incredible benefits; it not only relieves muscle and mental stress, but also improves the immune system as well as boosting your blood circulation.

*Venik are leafy branches of birch, oak and eucalyptus all bundled together. After soaking, they are used to both circulate the steam in the treatment room and also used to massage the body. The fragrances from the leaves blend with the steam, work on your body and add to the overall experience
