Saunas have been used for centuries as one of the best methods for relaxing the body and mind, as well as detoxifying the entire organism. They are popular worldwide, especially in Finland, not only due to the cold weather but also because they relax from stress and contribute to cleansing the body of toxins.

Inside the sauna, there are benches at different heights and hot stones. If you sit on higher benches, the air temperature is a few degrees higher. Typically, it starts with lying or sitting at a lower level to gradually acclimate the body to the temperatures. Intensive watering of the stones is recommended as it increases the humidity and ion percentage in the air, which has a calming effect on the nervous system.

Between 80°C and 100°C

Air humidity:
 Between 10 and 15%

Recommended time:
 Between 5 and 15 minutes

During the sauna session, sweating occurs, causing the pores to open and allowing dead cells and impurities deep within the skin to surface. Sauna sessions strengthen the immune system, relax the body from tension, help alleviate muscle pain, and balance hormones..

A large ladle called “Kauha” is used for pouring water. The container holding water in the sauna is called “Kiulu.” Water for pouring on the stones can be enriched with natural aromas, essential oils such as orange, mint, birch, lavender, pine, and more. This provides an additional positive effect by engaging the sense of smell.

Before entering the sauna, it is necessary to shower to remove sweat, oil, and impurities from the skin. After showering, you should dry yourself with a towel because wet skin delays sweating. The stay in a Finnish sauna should be from 6 to 15 minutes, depending on the individual and tolerance to high temperatures.

After leaving the sauna, spend a few moments in the intermediate area before entering the shower. Shower with cool water. First, cool your hands and feet, then the back, stomach, chest, and head. After that, take a break, refresh yourself with fruit, juice, or water. Such a cycle can be repeated two to three times during one session.

Although staying in the sauna has many benefits, in some cases, going to the sauna is not recommended. People with high blood pressure, as well as those with very low pressure, heart patients, individuals with a pacemaker, varicose veins, thrombosis, or acute infections should not visit the sauna. Sauna helps ease breathing for asthmatics but is not recommended during acute asthma problems. Pregnant women and young children should also avoid going to the sauna.

After using the sauna, blood vessels are dilated, and the body is warmed, so it is advisable to cool down to close the pores and contract the capillaries.

Within the One Wellness & SPA center, there is also a fountain that produces fine ice intended for this use. The extreme temperature difference will lead to the contraction of blood vessels and stimulate circulation. Many find this effect to be the most satisfying. Those who want to expose only a specific part of the body to extreme temperature differences resort to this cooling method. For easier acclimatization, always start with hands and feet and then along the entire body.

The ice fountain can be used after the bio and aroma sauna as well.
