Vat therapy in Truskavets

These days, vats are becoming an even more popular way to improve your health and relaxation every year. The city of Truskavets is not immune to this trend.

Many people believe that vats have the same effect on the body as baths and saunas. In both cases, it is a combination of high and low temperatures affecting the human body. But still, bathing in vats has its own specifics.

For maximum comfort and health benefits when bathing in vats, you should follow a few simple rules:

  1. Before immersing yourself in the vat, take a shower.
  2. Also, do not forget to remove all metal jewellery before the procedure, as jewellery metals have a very fast temperature transfer, which can cause significant discomfort during the entire procedure.
  3. Then you should gradually and smoothly reach the middle of the vat, take a comfortable position and begin the bathing process and relax.

Unlike saunas and baths, which are located indoors, vats are mostly located outdoors. This makes it possible to enjoy the surrounding nature in a relaxed atmosphere of communication with family or friends. Most vats are designed for up to 8 people to bathe at the same time.

The water in the vat is gradually heated by a fire, and after a while you should get out of it and dive into the cold water or wipe yourself with white snow. If there is no snow, you will have to use cold water to cool down. Cold water can be placed differently in each location with vats. It can be a bucket for dousing, a tub of water (you can immerse yourself completely or use a special mug), a swimming pool, a container of cold water that looks like a vat, or a natural body of water in the form of a stream, river or lake.

Then you can return to the vat and continue bathing. Bathing and cooling should be alternated every 15 minutes.

In the vat, the body is warmed not by steam or heated air, but by hot water, which is gradually heated from 35/36 to 45 degrees Celsius. The water is heated to the desired temperature simply by throwing wood into the fire of a closed stove, which is mostly located below (under the vat). Visitors feel as if they are being cooked in a giant cauldron. But there is no need to worry, as the vat is designed in such a way as not to cause any harm to the people inside. And the owners closely monitor the temperature of the water.

Most vats are made of cast iron. The choice of this material is not accidental. The fact is that cast iron heats up for a long time and is able to retain heat for a long time.

During bathing in the vats, it is allowed to immerse the heart and head in hot water for a short period of time. This is done to normalise the body’s temperature regime.

One session of bathing in a vat on average lasts from 1 to 2 hours. This time is quite enough to get the maximum healing effect for the human body.

After bathing in the vat, you should take a warm shower. All locations with vats in Truskavets are equipped with comfortable changing rooms with showers, where it is always warm, there are clean sheets, towels and slippers.

When choosing a vat for bathing, you should achieve maximum comfort and benefit from this procedure. The ideal bathing tub should allow you to lie or sit comfortably with your back leaning on it at an angle so that the water covers your body along the line of your heart.

If you have a tub that is narrowed to the top and has a small angle of inclination, you have to sit almost vertically with the water up to your neck. Bathing in such a vat puts additional stress on the heart, which can offset the benefits of the procedure. At this point, you should pay attention and choose the most comfortable vats that have a good fit of the benches inside.

Bathing in Truskavets vats is a great combination of health benefits and pleasant sensations. It is worth trying it at least once rather than hearing from friends and seeing their Instagram stories hundreds of times.

In general, vats allow you to achieve maximum relaxation of the body and mind, helping you to forget about any stress and anxiety, which makes them so popular.
