This is one of the oldest rituals the body relaxing and cleansing.

A sauna- the traditional Finnish bath- is known practically all over the world. For Finns the sauna is a sacred notion. This is a place, where peace reigns. Here you cannot quarrel. ďSteam disperses in angerĒ, - the Finns affirm. And dry steam is just that that distinguishes the sauna from the Russian or Finnish bath. The steam refreshes the body and calms the soul. Wood, emitting the healthy fragrance, intensifies the therapeutic influence of the sauna on the manís health. When you visit our Finnish sauna, you will understand why it is rendered odes and praised all over the world. You can combine the pleasure with the useful: the pleasure-to warm, to breathe with ďliveĒ air, filled by healthy fragrances of herbs; and the useful l-to relax and   to be alone.

The real sauna is able to clean the body and purify the soul. A good influence of the sauna on health is obvious: the warm opens skin pores and clears the body of chemical waste. It is very useful to have a steam bath in the sauna after physical exercises. The sauna is also a cosmetic care of skin. The skin becomes elastic and healthy after the regular visits of the sauna.

Rules of the sauna usage:

1. Make sure that you have two hours at least. It is recommended not to eat before entering the sauna (itís admissible to have a bite only, using the products, which have the main components to help for clearing the body of chemical waste (detoxication)).

But in any case donít wet your hair before entering the steam room not to cause the head overheating. You should put on a towel or a special hat on your head -it will prevent heat stroke. It should be noted the special harm of rubber hats, which are used by some bath ďspecialistsĒ. A tight hat presses out the head and squeezes blood vessels and its wearing leads to headache, indispositions, and giddinesses at least.

It is impossible to reduce humidity quickly, thatís why you should leave the steam room.

It is better to lie on down berths in horizontal position, relax your muscles and only after it you can lift step-by-step to upper berths.

For the first visit it is enough to take a steam bath not more than 3-7- minutes.
