EXPERIENCES Aufguss sessions

Waer Waters offers you a varied range of aufguss sessions. Experience the powerful effect of banya branches on your body, treat your body and health to an aromatic session or immerse yourself in a themed aufguss session.

The aufguss ritual is originally a Finnish tradition, during which water is mixed with essential oils and poured over the hot stones by the sauna master. A beautiful aroma is released and the steam spreads throughout the room. The sauna master waves a towel and fans away the layer of heat around the body. In spite of the high temperatures in the sauna, this ritual is sure to give you goosebumps. Our aufguss sessions are open to all our wellness visitors.

Traditional aufguss session

The foundation of an aufguss session is increasing the humidity in the sauna cabin by pouring water or ice with essential oils onto the hot stones. The steam ensures that the heat is carried more optimally via the water molecules and when a sauna master circulates this steam by fanning the air with a towel, it gives you an intense and pleasant hot sensation. The body warms up, the blood circulation increases, the pores open and the cleansing process begins. Experience the healing and purifying effect on your body.

Banya Aufguss session

A banya aufguss session is a Russian sauna ritual which uses birch, oak or linden branches that have been soaked in water for several hours. The substances in the branches and leaves are released into the water. The wood primarily contains tannins and essential oils that have a tightening effect on the skin and help wounds heal faster. The sauna master gently and firmly hits your skin with the branches, which stimulates the blood circulation and allows the essential oils to penetrate deeper into the skin. You can tell the sauna master how hard you want the 'beating’ to be, so don't be put off by the word ‘hit’. The countless droplets that are left on your skin have incredible health benefits:

  • Activate your sweat glands
  • Stimulate blood circulation
  • Purify and relax the skin
  • Strengthen the immune system
  • Stimulate blood circulation
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Relax the muscles
  • Beneficial for your mind

Aromatherapy Aufguss session

Aromatherapy is a great way to make the sauna experience even more pleasant and to stimulate the senses further. During an aromatherapy aufguss session, the sauna master focuses on the basic elements: the pouring, the creation of heat and the use of effective fanning materials. The natural essential oils are chosen for their health benefits, such as for improved breathing, immunity, purification, relaxation, balance or energy. Essential oils are extracted from fresh plant matter using distillation or pressing. We exclusively use 100% natural essential oils.

The sauna master pours a mixture of water and essential oils onto the sauna stones to spread the aroma. During this aromatherapy in the sauna, the sauna master can introduce you to various types of essential oils. For example, did you know that at Waer Waters, we use 7 different types of mint essential oils? Or 5 different types of eucalyptus? The sauna master would be happy to introduce you to them. No music is played during the session. Afterwards, we will offer you tea or fruit depending on the session.

  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Encourages emotional and spiritual healing
  • Anti-inflammatory effect
  • Stimulates spiritual health and a good mood
