Health Benefits of Dry Sauna

Dry SaunaSaunas have been part of life through many generations and many cultures.
From the ancient Estonians who believed saunas were inhibited by spirits, through Finnish saunas from the 5th and 8th century to the Navajo sweat lodges, people have been using sauna as a place to cleanse themselves – body and soul.

The Turkish culture has the Hammam, the Russians have the Banya, the Jews have the Shvitzbath, the Africans have their Sifutu and the Japanese the Mushi-Buro. Each culture with its traditions but all involving great heat and sweat. The Finnish pride themselves by saying that in a country of 6 million people, there are 2 million saunas.
