Preparation
We’ll arrive in sauna and you’ll have time to prepare yourself for for this amazing experience. Sauna master will serve you herbal tea that will help you to soak up the power of nature and will help you to relax. “Pirtnieks” will explain the procedure for you. The purpose of Latvian sauna extends beyond just washing the body. The wisdom of our ancestors will help you to escape the cares and troubles of everyday life, release the stress, and revive the spirit. Please, note that you are not allowed to use alcohol or any other drugs before or during the ritual. Now you’re be ready to start.
The Process Of Latvian Sauna Ritual
In Latvia, we go into the so-called wet sauna. The water is poured over hot stones to produce vapor and make the air humid. The perfect temperature is 86 degrees Celsius (187 degrees F). Yet the beginners usually start at lower temperatures. Every sauna master “Pirtnieks” has it own special secrets for Latvian Sauna Ritual. Yet the essential parts are the same. You will go to sauna three times. After heating up in the sauna you will cool down rapidly in a cold pond, a pool or shower. The sudden contrast between the hot and cold stimulates the blood vessels, strengthens the body, and improves skin’s elasticity. Latvian Sauna Ritual also includes swatting with switches. They are made of the twigs taken from a number of trees. The most common are birch (universal), oak (for men), linden (for women) as well as hazel and juniper twig switches. Masters adds a variety of other plants to their swatting bunches, providing healing properties, scents, and energy. Swatting with switches is both a massage and aromatherapy. It also helps getting rid of the dead skin cells. If you wish the sauna ritual can be supplemented with beauty treatments, such as body scrubs or facial masks made out of clay and honey (subject to availability and agreement with the sauna master). You will have time to relax in between each heating round. Depending on the place an availability after the last heating round, the sauna master will hold you and will help you to lay down in the water. This leads to full relaxation and people often experience an expansion of cautiousness and deep bliss. Each experience is different and it is impossible to describe it in words. Hence you have to try it to know how deep and beautiful it really is for YOU.
Relaxation
After the sauna ritual, you’ll take you time to relax and enjoy the lightness of your body and spirit that mother nature gives you through this experience. Here you have a chnce to stop you mind and just be. Happy and non-distracted.
Transfer back to hotel
We’ll bring you back to your hotel or, depending on your choice and sauna place, you’ll be able to stay there overnight (subject to availability)
Some post-experience advice
Please do not plan any strenuous activities, heavy meals or alcohol on the same day after the ritual. The ritual also has also a very strong detox effect, both physical and spiritual. Hence you may feel different than usually in the coming days. You may have reduced appetite, light diarrhea or other mild side symptoms. Yet your body and soul stabilizes in a couple of days. Usually, people do not experience any side effects at all.
