OUR FINNISH STYLE SAUNA ROOM... has clean red cedar benches that can comfortably seat five people. Gently pour a small amount of water on the hot rocks on top to create a cloud of steam. Rinse off under the cold shower or ladle water from a bucket to cool down so you can stay in the heat longer. If you dare, run outside in the winter and roll in the snow for an intense rush!
Sauna has profound healing and detoxifying effects on the body. Researchers have found that 15 minutes of sweating in a sauna rids the body of the same amount of heavy metal toxins that would take the kidneys 24 hours to excrete. Many people claim that sauna bathing can nip a cold in the bud: the steam and heat gently open clogged sinuses for cold and allergy sufferers.
Today, people who are ruled by tight, uncompromising schedules have a strong sensation of time standing still in the sauna. If their internal clocks measure anything, it is how long to stay in the sauna for perfect comfort. Sauna offers soothing sensations at all levels.
