Balkan Forest Hammam


Was absolutely blown away by the introduction of the 'Balkan Spa Forest Hammam' concept at the 3rg Balkan Spa Summit (Arandelovac, Serbia). Would you have thought that this would include natural, ethnology, heritage and health? The creators of the concept drafted a whole ritual:

1 Welcome

2 Vital Bar (beverage of geographic origin)

3 Balkan SPA Table (food of local origin inlcuding cold cuts, cheeses, fruits, etc.)

4 Balkan Spa Equipment (shepards bag, etho/folk signs on clothes, slippers of wool, flying carpets)

5 Under the Tree (oak, pine, linden or chestnut) (embracing the tree/hugging, streching, deep breathing, meditation, folkdancing, pet therapy)

6 Walking through the forest (collecting herbs, fruits, mushrooms)

7 Balkan SPA Forest Hammam (heliotherapy, aromatherapy, phytotherapy, chromotherapy, music therapy, ethno body art therapy)

8 Farewell

Well, what do you think?
