About the Banya
Historians place the Banya of Eastern Europe in a central societal role by the 900s. Throughout history, the Banya has been enjoyed by all classes. Villagers who did manual labour used to visit a public bathhouse, often the only place to wash off, while the wealthy would sometimes indulge in private Banyas.
Banyas are still popular today. Most Banyas are gender separated and nudity is optional. They typically include a cold plunge pool and a steam room with wooden benches at varying heights - the higher you go, the hotter it gets. They offer treatments such as honey & salt or coffee scrub, Siberian traditional body wash, massage, mud masks, aroma steams and herbal teas. It is an experience that takes a few hours and leaves you restored and completely relaxed.
As part of Herbowski's commitment, they will offset 1.25 Tonnes of CO² every month with Carbon Neutral Britain Program. Over a year, they will offset 15 Tonnes of CO².
Herbowski will also plant 20 trees every month in sustainable projects around the world. Over a year, they will plant 240 trees – which is the equivalent to 1 acre of Amazon Reforestation.
