Finnish sauna

The Finnish sauna relaxes muscles and strengthens the immune system, and the perspiration helps the body eliminate harmful and toxic substances from the body. The average temperature in a classic Finnish sauna is around 90°C, therefore it is recommended that visits are limited to 5 or a maximum of 20 minutes, depending on the individual. A Finnish sauna is a wood-lined room with a stove with hot rocks. Water scented with various essential oils is poured over the rocks, further warming the room.
Temperature from 40 to 50°C, low humidity of 30 to 35%.

Herbal sauna

The herbal sauna is one of the derivatives of the Finnish sauna. The air temperature is between 40 and 50°C and the humidity between 60 and 65%. In the herbal sauna, herbs such as chamomile, lavender, eucalyptus and mint are slowly released into the room through a gentle steam, relaxing the overworked nervous system and strained muscles, and has a beneficial effect on the respiratory system.
Temperature 40 to 50°C, low humidity between 15 and 20%.

Infrared sauna

Due to their safety, ease of use, comfort and efficiency, infrared (IR) saunas are becoming increasingly widespread and a desirable addition. The infrared sauna works deeply, releasing tension, and warms the body. The infrared sauna uses heaters that emit infrared light. This energy is equivalent to the infrared radiation emitted by the sun and the human body. The IR rays penetrate the body, speeding up blood circulation, raising body temperature, and causing perspiration. We sense infrared light as heat. It is recommended for relieving respiratory, skin and scalp conditions, allergy symptoms, strengthening the immune system, promoting blood circulation, and improving circulation.
Temperature 40 to 50°C, high humidity 100%.

Turkish sauna

A Turkish sauna or “hammam” is quite an experience. Turkish saunas are characterised by high humidity (over 100%), which is why many people call them wet saunas. This is why steam Turkish saunas are very effective in cleansing the skin. A salt scrub (with different scents and herbs) has the added effect of removing dead skin, as the steam opens the pores and helps to cleanse the skin in a natural way, leaving it soft and smooth. It also has a beneficial effect on the airways, similar to inhalation, which is often recommended by doctors. After three sets of 10 to 20 minutes, cool down a little and repeat the process four times. In the hammam, you sit or lie on a heated stone platform and are bathed first with warm and then with cold water flowing from the wall into a basin.
