One of the oldest references to saunas is found in Kiev Nestor's Chronicle from 1113, but Finns have 2000 years of experience in this area. The ancestors of the present-day Finns combined two techniques: hot steam and hot dry saunas. The first saunas were simply winter dwelling places. A stone hearth, sometimes covered in snow, was located in the centre. The steam from the hearth elevated the temperature in the dwelling.
The sauna zone provides many benefits for the organism: restoring vitality, improving blood circulation, relaxing the muscles, as well as stimulating the immune and hormonal systems - relaxing us through the release of endorphins.
A sauna creates a perfect space for biological and spiritual renewal, and it is an ideal solution for a hectic life as a mere 20 minutes in the sauna can make a great difference.
The sauna zone includes a steam sauna, herbal sauna, dry sauna and infra-red sauna (1.5 hour).
STEAM SAUNA (43-45°C) HUMIDITY 100%
Relaxing in the steam sauna stimulates the restoration of vitality, improves the blood circulation, relaxes the muscles, facilitates the removal of metabolic waste products, and stimulates the hormonal system (endorphins are released during the session, which reduces stress).
HERBAL SAUNA (45-60°C) HUMIDITY 60%
Containers for herbs and essential oils are placed in special, modern ovens, from where they are distributed with the steam all over the room. A session in the sauna restores vitality, improves blood circulation, provides herbal inhalations, relaxes the muscles, removes metabolic waste products, and stimulates the hormonal system (endorphins are released, which reduces stress) and the immune system.
DRY SAUNA (90-100°C) HUMIDITY 5-20%
This sauna is the hottest. Such conditions open the ski pores and induce intensive perspiration of the body. A session in the sauna restores vitality, improves blood pressure, relaxes the muscles, removes metabolic waste products and stimulates the immune system.
INFRARED SAUNA (ABOUT 60°C) HUMIDITY 5-20%
A session in the infra-red sauna may take up to 30 minutes, the infra-red radiation warming the body up to a depth of 4.5 cm, causing intensive perspiration. During a single session we burn up to 900 calories, the equivalent of a 10 km run, cleaning the skin of toxins and improving its appearance, and noticeably reducing cellulite. The therapy is recommended by doctors for the treatment of muscle pains, injuries, sprains, joint diseases and circulation problems.
