The whisk can be used for: fanning, stroking, shaking, whipping, compressing, rubbing and stretching. It is best to combine them, in turn.
Fanning: there is no direct contact with the body.
Using the whisk as a fan, move it along the body to give a feeling of a pleasant hot "wind".
Stroking: slowly move the whisk along the body from feet to neck and then back, repeat 3–4 times.
Shaking: from time to time bring the whisk up (the higher, the hotter, so the body will heat up better, if you need it) and shake it,
then press the whisk to the target areas (small of the back, joints, etc.) for a few seconds. If the whisk gets too hot, dip it into cold water.
Whipping: interchange strokes with gentle whips, lying first on stomach and than on back.
Compressing: raise the whisk and make 2–3 whips on the target areas, then raise it again, let it heat up in the hot air and press to the body for a few seconds as a compress.
Rubbing: most often used during the last steaming session, to complete the process. For this, press the whisk to the body with your hand and rub in circles.
Stretching: put two whisks at a time on the small of the back, press them tightly down and move to sides. The technique is an effective way to relieve back pains.
