Beer lovers have a reason to celebrate!! While the rest of the world celebrates Oktoberfest by drinking beer, how about soaking in beer. Whatt?? Don’t be shocked we are heading you straight to beer spas in Prague where beer is cheaper than water especially at restaurants and bars. If you are happy, sad or just in a mood for some fun, we are giving you all the reasons to drink beer and now soak in it too. Beer lovers can soak up the true Czech culture along with essential vitamins while drinking from a personal tap. The philosophy is simple- what is good for your digestive system is good for your skin.
What is it?
Beer is a part of the Czech culture. The Czechs have elevated this healthy drink into a wellness experience. They rank number one in the world for beer consumption. Wherever you look in Prague, you find beer. This fact is validated by Prague’s beer museum and the worldwide statistics and now beer has found a new place –in Oak tubs. Yes, we are talking about Beer Spa. There are many beer spas you can find in the city. This year-round soak activity is extremely beneficial for the skin as well as is great to uplift your mood. The treatment involves a 20-30 minutes soak in an oak tub filled with spring water, hops, malt and yeast heated to around 38 degree celsius. This is followed by 30 minutes of lying down on hay bed. Just when we were thinking that beer is just good for hair, we realise all these years we have got it all wrong. Why just drink when you can dip, drink and dine.
Sinking into a tub of beer is definitely an experience of a lifetime. This was something that is practically beyond my imagination. First things first, it is not an ordinary spa it is a beer spa. No scented candles, just yeast, malt and hops in an oak tub filled with warm water. As you enter, you realise that your body is going to soak up all the much-needed vitamins and oils it has been craving. There are many health benefits attached to it as it improves blood circulation, relieves joint pains, adds shine to hair and detoxification. While your body undergoes some fabulous changes, your 30-minute soak is complemented with homemade beer bread and unlimited drinking of beer. After a while, the water turns a little greenish, thanks to the hops. The soft music in the background and a little tipsy feeling-there is just one word to explain “bliss”.
You can entertain yourself by drinking directly from the beer tap, or by pouring the beer on the head thus proving the beer conditioner theory. Lastly, lay down on the hay bed to allow further absorption of all the good stuff that your body has just soaked.
