Different humidity. Different temperatures. Different pleasures.

Traditional sauna

Scandinavian sauna bathing takes two traditional forms. The classic sauna is best enjoyed at temperatures of 155–180°F in a relative humidity of 20–35%. Now and then you sprinkle a ladle of water over the hot sauna stones and feel the unique, tingling sensation as wave after wave of heat penetrates deep into your skin. Your pores open, you perspire freely and dead skin cells simply disappear in the shower. Rounding off by pouring water over the stones is part of the ritual. A slightly more extreme variation on this theme is the dry sauna in very high temperatures (180–200°F) and an almost totally dry atmosphere. This form of sauna bathing is popular among those who like to feel the searing sensation of heat on their skin, when perspiration is the only way to cool the body.

Steam sauna

A gentler form of sauna in 110–150°F, which many people experience as the ideal bathing temperature. A continuous and automatic supply of steam ensures constant humidity of 40–65%. The result is a more temperate bathing climate that tempts both young and old to linger a little longer. Just like traditional saunas, steam saunas produce the same sensation of clean, fresh skin and give you the same opportunity to unwind and relax both body and soul. For that touch of ultimate luxury, you can perfume the air with invigorating herbs or fragrant essences.

A steambath is not to be confused with the steam sauna. To enjoy a modern steam bath you leave the realm of the wooden sauna cabin and relax instead in a specially designed room finished in glass, plastic or tiles. The humidity level is a constant 100%. However, the temperature doesn’t rise above 105–115°F.

Infra saunas

This form of bathing is based on infrared radiation and has little in common with sauna bathing as such. The Typical equipment available emits IR-B and IR-C radiation. This penetrates deep into the body and is widely used by beauticians the world over to enhance the efficacy of a number of skin treatments. Infrared radiation is also used as a medical therapy to alleviate the effects of rheumatism, tense muscles and similar aches and pains. It is a well-known fact that heat in all its forms stimulates the body and enhances the sensation of mental and physical wellbeing.
