Do You Sauna Like a Finn? Give it a Try! – Sauna Sale Portland, Oregon

Over the last fifty years Americans have become more and more enamored with taking a sauna. Yet, like many things that migrate from Europe, the sauna session for many is the Americanized version. With the temperatures dropping, it could be a great time to try taking a sauna like a true Finn!

First, you’ll need your sauna room hot
The minimum acceptable temperature would be 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Once in the sauna, you need to create humidity by ladling water onto your sauna rocks. The steam produced is absolutely necessary for an authentic Finnish sauna session.

Now, It’s Time to get out the birch tree whisks
Yes, you heard me right – you’ll need small branches from a young birch tree fashioned into a whisk. Proceed to lightly “swat” yourself with the birch whisk. Not only does this create an aromatic environment in the sauna, the beating increases circulation and encourages perspiration.

Next, it’s time for the cool down
Once you’ve completed your sauna session, it’s time for the cool down. This can be achieved in a variety of ways. For many, it’s attainable by jumping in a cold pool, lake or stream! If none of those are available, a cool shower is acceptable, as well as retreating outside to cool down in the crisp night air.

Ready to Give a Sauna Session the Authentic Finnish Way a Try? You’ll be Quite Surprised at How Terrific it Will Make You Feel!
