Vat therapy in Lazeshchyna

Transcarpathian vats have a very long history. The Celts, who once inhabited the Silver Land, are considered to be the authors of this method of healing in the Carpathians. It was they who created the prototype of modern tubs. For bathing, they dug a pit that was lined with animal skin. This reservoir was filled with mineral or spring water, and then stones heated on a fire were placed there. The ancient Celts used to treat injuries and diseases by bathing in this healing water. Over time, vats began to be made of wood. Hot stones were also thrown into the wooden baths. Nowadays, vats are made of cast iron and steel, and instead of hot stones, they use fires.

Nowadays, scientists have managed to prove the great benefits of vats for people’s health. The Hutsul vats in the village of Lazeshchyna are a great way to improve overall health, improve immunity, skin and musculoskeletal system, normalise blood pressure, improve cardiovascular health, improve thyroid function, and normalise the nervous system, prevent insomnia and depression, etc.

Advantages of vats compared to baths and saunas

In Ukraine, the tradition of bathing in vats has been actively developing and reviving since independence. Previously, this type of recreation was known only to residents of the Ukrainian Carpathians, but nowadays vats have become a real brand of Transcarpathia both in Ukraine and abroad. Tourists from all over the world come to the picturesque mountains to improve their health in this amazing “Carpathian Jacuzzi”.

Vats have a number of advantages over baths and saunas:

  1. First of all, bathing in a vat is very beneficial for the respiratory system, as it takes place outdoors in the fresh mountain air, rather than in a sauna or bathhouse isolated from nature.
  2. Secondly, bathing in vats is more comfortable and gentle compared to baths/saunas, which is suitable for families with children.
  3. Thirdly, a vat is a great way to rejuvenate without breaking a sweat like in baths and saunas.
