In London’s industrial heart there’s an oasis of calm, relaxation and conviviality where you can enjoy all the health benefits of a traditional Turkish baths – with a bit of Russian thrown in!
Here you can sweat out the week’s grime in the steam rooms, relax aching muscles and joints in the sauna or chill out in the ice-cold plunge; you can have your skin whipped within an inch of its life in the schmeissing room, or pummelled then gently massaged on one of the massage slabs, or you can find out what the true meaning of invigoration is by being beaten with bundles of leafy birch twigs in the Russian room.
But don’t be daunted: you go at your own pace and do as much or as little as you like. Regular users are always around to show you what’s what and guide you in how best to enjoy the many treatments on offer. Soon you’ll be as hooked as they are. And when you’re feeling rejuvenated and better than you’ve felt for longer than you can remember, you can go upstairs, take a breather, grab a bite to eat or a drink in the café, watch some TV, check out the free-use internet, or put your feet up and fall asleep in the comfortable lounge chairs. All for a maximum entry price of £16.
Now, can you really think of anywhere else in London that offers you so much for such a low price? No, neither can we. So see you soon, then.
At the New Docklands Russian Banya & Steam Baths you can enjoy the four different temperature steam rooms and the very hot Banya and go away feeling relaxed and with a wonderful sense of well-being. And you can stay as long as you want and to get the most out of the visit, try to get one of the treatments outlined below. There are groups of regular users and you will see them doing both the Venik and the Schmeiss treatments. If you ask they may include you and show you how it all works and then you can decide to buy your own items and get your own friends to make your own group. You will need to wear trunks or bathing costume at all times as well as flip flops or shower shoes with your own towels. Upstairs is the rest area where you can enjoy home cooked food offerings and refreshments to round off your visit .
An essential part of Russian bath is Venik - fragrant bundles of leafy silver birch or oak tree twigs. Venik bundles are struck against the body, invigorating the skin and improving blood circulation. It helps with muscle and joint pain and improves respiration. Essential oils released by the venik improve metabolism and prevent premature aging of the skin. Ask one of the many Russian, Lithuanian or Latvian regulars, they may offer you a venik treatment
Originally schmeissing was a Jewish ritual carried out with a raffia brush. It looks like a kind of mop swung in a rotatory fashion over the person lying on the marble slab, building up the hot air in the room and stimulating the skin. The soft soapy brush is then rubbed against the body, scrubbing the skin and giving it an amazing exfoliation. As well as removing dead or damaged skin, the scrubbing helps to increase circulation and oxygen flow around the body. Ask anyone in a group who is doing the Schmeiss and they might include you in the treatment. You will feel refreshed, reinvigorated - and cleaner than you’ve ever been!
