The winner will be the master whose bath skills in a steam room will give the maximum health effect for the guests. The competitions will be held in special transparent steam rooms providing for the resort guests an opportunity to support favorite master. All who wish to experience the healing properties of steam will have the opportunity to become a volunteer model and take a steam bath free of charge.
