Hay bathing consists of being wrapped up in fermenting hay and fresh herbs. During this treatment temperatures can reach 40 to 70 degrees Celsius in order to stimulate a physiological transpiration which persists even after the treatment. The heat and humidity help release essential oils from the herbs which are then absorbed by the body.
Hay bathing has been know for centuries and it originates when farmers used to cut the grass and then sleep on the hay after a long day’s work. They would then feel completely refreshed as the hay managed to help them get rid of the fatigue and exhaustion caused by their physical work.
The actual wrapping phase lasts for 15-20 min. The guest is then wrapped in sheets and moved to a lounger next door to the wet area.
Hay bathing gives a physical sense of wellbeing due to the relaxation caused by the heat and the electrolyte exchange caused by the transpiration. The skin acquires tonicity thanks to the stimulation of the peripheral circulation and the absorption of the essential oils contained in the fresh herbs. Indicated for those suffering from rheumatism, sleep disorders, muscle contractures, etc.
