Saunas have been a part of Nordic history for thousands of years. From pits in the earth with hot stones to the picturesque wooden structures that we see today, we have been reaping the benefits of saunas from a long time. Why is the sauna so beneficial to us? Not only does it take our mind away from the business of life for a few moments, but it is also thought that the sauna has positive effects on our body too. Clearer skin, relaxed muscles and an improved immune system to name a few. Studies also show that regular sauna attendance can help with blood flow, sleep schedules, stress management and metabolism. If you have always wanted to swim in the Arctic, but were concerned about the temperature, then the sauna is the perfect fix! It is traditional to take a dip in the cool sea or cover yourself in the snow if you're here in winter. Feel your whole body tingle as you slow your breathing while testing your limits. The sauna is right behind you to warm you up again.
