A little about our Aufguss master:
If you’ve visited Pust more than once, you may have either experienced Paul’s wonderful Aufguss or heard about it. Paul originally comes from Russia, and has lived in over 20 years in Germany where his love and experience for sauna and Aufguss rituals comes from. He is incredibly skilled in this, and we can safely say that the sauna is his element.
You may also have met him at Glasshuset Bilpleie where he is the general manager. With positivity and radiant light he meets everyone on his way, and according to himself he only chooses to do what he loves. The most important thing for him is to create the best experiences and results for his customers as well as everyone who is lucky enough to experience his Aufguss sessions at PUST.
In other words: lucky us! Welcome to a time filled with amazing exposure to heat and cold in beautiful harmony.
