The Finnish Sauna
A thousand years ago, the Fins would use heated stones to warm their homes. By chance, they discovered that the rocks would release extra heat in the form of steam when water was poured over them. The sauna was born! While this form of heating initially served a practical purpose, the Fins soon noticed the physical and mental benefits of this heat. Over time, a sauna culture developed as part of the daily care for body and mind.
