An essential part of the Russian bath - 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 and they'll tell you all about it.
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. You will feel refreshed, reinvigorated - and cleaner than you’ve ever been!
