IBA sauna course

Themes covered

  • Bodywork of the back

    In this practical theme, we learn the basic techniques of gentle body touch and massage. Soft, relaxing touch is included in all basic sauna techniques and treatments - light bathing, body scrubbing, and massage. The skills on this topic will benefit further training that are included in the Professional Sauna Therapist training program.

    Skills developed in the workshop

    • Preparation for bodywork, laying a person down
    • skin stroking
    • warming rubbing
    • oiling the skin
    • working on the deeper subcutaneous tissue
    • ergonomics and safety of movements
    • effective transverse work
  • Healthy steam bath procedure

    The first practical theme(topic) of the Bath Masters course  is the Healthy Sauna Procedure. It is dedicated to learning about a healthy, bioresonant sauna. During the sauna, we go through a complete sauna procedure consisting of 4 stages:

    • introductory warm-up
    • sweating stimulation
    • Soaking in the steam and self-bathing

    This workshop is essential for those wishing to continue their studies and further their knowledge, but it is also available simply to try a healthy sauna treatment in a good sauna (often with a good gourmet sauna stove).

  • Introduction to whisking

    A practical theme to learn and test the work of a sauna master. The first steps towards a new profession take place in a safe environment, in a good sauna, with the help of an experienced trainer. This topic is usually taught in the form of a sauna evening (a practical session in the sauna), during which the teacher introduces and demonstrates the main points of practical work in the steam room and the students try it out in practice. In this way, they have the opportunity to test themselves as future sauna practitioners and get a better idea of the level at which they would like to learn the sauna trade.
