Lithuanian pirtis ABC

Date: 2022-10-08, 10:00
Organizer : Lithuanian Bath Academy

Short practical introduction to Ltihuanian pirtis in Japan with a bit of local flavour - we used local whisks and local beauty treatment products, but followed a clasical Lithuanian steam bath scenario, which has 4 stages: 

First round (Winter)
Soft warming up. Making friends with the space.

Second round (Spring)
Remind our bodies they are liquid! Promoting of sweating, skin washing. Salt. Soft wisking.

Third round (Summer)
Hot procedures. Hot steam. Whisking.

Fourth round (Autumn)
Beauty treatments, masks. Deep scrub, massage. Honey. Coming back to the body. Silence.

Whisks Certificates

It is a pleasant and fun way to start your pirtis experience!
