Venik Platza is a Russian hot massage using a venik, performed in the Russian steam banya. Our signature service combines the natural healing power of tree leaves with the revitalizing heat of the banya. We use fresh birch or oak tree veniks that have been soaking in hot water to help bring out the oils and aromas.

Archimedes Banya is the cathedral of steam and heat, and Dream Steam Aromatherapy is one of our most sophisticated techniques to stimulate the soul.
