Picture the benefits of a hot sauna - now imagine having the pleasures of a sauna with the addition of a professional Branch Man. Having a branch man perform a ritual scrubbing with the use of leafy branches that hastens the cleansing effect is a method of complete purification. Dried branches are moistened with very hot water before use to make them flexible and functional. The branches typically come from White Birch, Oak or Eucalyptus trees and are dried for use during the session. In lieu of dry branches, sometimes in the summer months, fresh branches are used instead. The spa may freeze the branches for thawing later. These branches are then used to massage the body which greatly improves circulation. Because the temperatures often exceed 200 degrees, a special felt hat and/or gloves may be recommended in order to protect the head and hands.

At Fire and Ice Spa, the Branch Man is there to increase the effectiveness of the experience and to give you a complete circulatory scrubbing which rejuvenates and exfoliates the body.

Restore the body to glowing health with our branches treatment. It involves being repeatedly massaged with tree branches in a variety of different patterns and strokes. The "venik", or branch, firmly strokes the body in alternating motions with pressure changing from light to full pressure. This is usually accompanied by the application of oil which is thought to release toxins (Oak leaves are naturally astringent) and exfoliate dead skin. Different types of branches may be used for different treatments of various ailments such as Birch for joint pain and healing. The massage is thorough and goes from soothing to intense action with the branches and oils. You will feel invigorated, cleansed and ready for anything!

Experience our Branch Man massage for total cleansing and detoxification. You will feel the healing effects immediately.

Price of the Branch Man services is $20.
