FINNISH SAUNA (DRY SAUNA)

Sauna relaxation in a traditional Finnish sauna has beneficial effects and boosts health. Our Finnish sauna is made of radiata pine wood, which is typical for a reddish tone and contrasts beautifully with the interior.

Finnish sauna sessions boost the blood circulation in the whole body, offer relaxation and can heal the airways and skin problems. They clean, refresh body and mind, help create mental and physical balance. The ideal air humidity for airways is around 30% and that’s why hot stones are poured with water regularly. The effect of Finnish sauna relaxation consists in activating thermal-regulation processes in the body. Blood is pumped into dilated vessels under the skin and this causes intensive sweating. The body gets rid of toxins, the skin becomes healthier and looks better. Cooling down is an important phase of every Finnish sauna session to bring the blood back inside the body, which activates the immune system and boosts healing processes.
