The sauna uk(Finnish: “sauna”; Finnish: sanana) is an ancient bathhouse tradition that has found its way to cultures around the world. The high heat levels in a sauna cause your body to sweat and the sweating helps to loosen toxins from the skin’s pores. It also promotes relaxation and improved mental well-being by reducing stress levels. The high temperatures in a sauna increase blood flow and your heart rate, thereby helping to improve circulation, relieve muscle soreness, ease arthritis pain, and aid in cardiovascular disease prevention by improving heart health.
The word sauna is derived from the Finnish verb “sauna”, meaning to steam or sweat. In the traditional Finnish sauna, stones and rocks are heated to very high temperatures which causes the air to become saturated with steam, making it hotter than the body temperature and causing sweating. The air is often refreshed with cold water thrown on the stones to help maintain the heat and humidity.

In Estonia, sauna traditions are almost identical to Finland’s and the sauna is a very important part of people’s lives. It is a place where brides are ceremoniously washed, where women give birth, and where the dying make their final bed. In folk tradition, the sauna was inhabited by spirits called tonttu and it was customary to leave food outside for them.
The sauna is commonly used as a recreational facility in many countries and is usually a segregated men’s or women’s area. In some saunas, scented salts may be given out to be applied to the body for extra cleansing effects. Dehydration can occur due to fluid loss during sweating, so it is recommended that you drink plenty of water after using a sauna.
