“Give me a fever, and I can cure any disease” - Hippocrates
The mission of ARCHIMEDES BANYA is to bring the ancient culture and the health benefits of community bathing activities to the level of Hi-Tech era, as a single alternative to working out in gyms and socializing in bars. We wish for every American city (LA, NY, DC, etc) to have an ARCHIMEDES BANYA complex, to revitalize the body, relax the mind, meet old friends and make new ones.
A business, as much as an individual, demonstrates a certain perspective and a philosophy. It can aspire to the general good of the local community using knowledge from international sources. Its success can be measured in part by the contributions to the individual lives it has helped. ARCHIMEDES BANYA’s philosophy combines a constantly evolving up-to-date facility development with implementation of new cultural ideas. The BANYA meets the needs of our visitors, by providing a great steam, massage, food, and relaxation facility. ARCHIMEDES BANYA plays a vital role for our community by providing a setting where people are able to meet and enjoy becoming healthier and feeling better. We believe that the diversity of cultures involved in our facility enhances the social aspect and enriches entertainment life of the San Francisco Bay Area.
