My acquaintance with the cedar barrel took place about two years ago, in that period when I clearly understood that the kilograms would not be thawing myself, I would not look younger in one day, and my skin would not cleanse and feed itself. In general, my body needs recovery and support from the outside.
Cedar barrel, this concept is not figuratively. This is really a huge tank, made in the shape of a barrel. It is made of cedar using all the old Russian technologies of heat preservation.
The unit heats up for about half an hour before it accommodates a person. The barrel is connected to an electric heater, which, during the heating period, supplies wet steam to the barrel.
When the device is heated, steam swirls around and the smell of the forest is heard throughout the room, the doors open in the barrel, and you can enter it. Inside there is a shop and a stand for hands and feet.
What happens in the barrel?
I sit down on a bench, previously covered with a towel, the administrator closes the tight doors of the barrel, but the head remains on the surface, you can breathe easily, even drink water. A towel is wrapped around the neck, an hourglass is set for 15 minutes, and the healing procedure begins.
Sweat starts to stand out from the first seconds everywhere. And flows with terrible force. Usually I lose between 600 and 1300 ml of liquid per procedure, but I drink it beforehand.
In order to well sweat the arms and legs, it is desirable to place them on special handrails, which allow you to simultaneously and do massage cellulite zones (forearm, thigh).
Initially, it seems that the heat is not enough, but you should not ask for an increase in temperature, because by the 9th minute the opposite effect occurs, it seems that steam burns the skin.
How is the recovery?
Improvement of the body is initially a classic way, as in a simple bath: the removal of toxins and salts. But there is an additional impact. Steam, served in a barrel, does not come from simple water, but from herbal infusion. And you can choose the collection yourself. In the salons, as a rule, there is a list of herbal. They vary: eat from diseases, from depression, to calm and lose weight.
Intensive weight loss in a barrel
All indications to visit the cedar barrel are the same as for the bath. It is not advisable to go into it more often than once every 5 days, or even a week.
But if you urgently need to lose weight, remove fluid from the body, you are allowed to visit the barrel every other day or even daily. But then you definitely need to take a big break.
I myself attend the procedure once a week, but I heard how I instructed the girl bride before the wedding.
After the procedure
After the procedure, you can not take a shower. Sounds unhygienic, I agree. But it is believed that the steam with oils of healing herbs is absorbed into the epidermis and continues its magical effect for several hours.
As I cool down and try to recover from pleasure, they always bring green tea. Weakness, exhaustion, relaxation contribute to a good mood and complete disappearance of problems. Even a few tens of minutes is enough to feel reborn, full of energy.
All in a barrel, on acquaintance with a miracle!
