In this sauna we use exclusively herbs located in our valleys. In a way, the herbs are “cooked” in the evaporation pot, from which essential oils evaporate, and give the sauna a different feel.
Of course, the essential oils in the mixture with water can also be poured onto the heated stones of the sauna sauna, thus achieving a similar effect with the essential oils as with the evaporation pot.
The temperature and humidity regime is milder than in a classic Finnish sauna. The correct implementation of the herbal sauna also emphasizes the systematic ventilation of the sauna, which is connected with the sauna control itself, which ensures optimal well-being in the sauna itself. In particular, the main purpose of the herbal sauna is to relax or further stimulate the airways with the help of essential oils, which will be relaxed and calmed by the temperature, humidity and individual odors of the essential oils. Thus, after the sauna, we will feel a completely different feeling of full and calm breathing.
In our (Finnish) sauna you will relax and sweat well, boosting your immune system and body resistance.The Finnish sauna oven heats the stones, which are poured with liquid (water to which essential oils can be added), thus releasing a hot wave of steam. The hot steam that envelops us is a great way to cleanse and rejuvenate our body and mind. In the Finnish sauna, we sweat a lot, stimulating blood circulation and strengthening the blood vessels. In addition, sweat metabolism and excretion are accelerated. However, during colds, the Finnish sauna reduces the chance of infection, as it activates the body’s defense systems.Regular visits to the sauna with higher temperatures (above 85 ° C) and proper subsequent cooling allow the body to change its average temperature in about five weeks by 0.5 ° C downwards. Which means that this lowering of the body temperature makes it easier to tolerate colder as well as warmer temperature periods.
The infrared (IR) cabin has recently become a widespread and desirable form of sauna. Most of all, it has become popular for its ease of use, convenience and efficiency. It is also important to emphasize that this type of sauna is also suitable for people who, for whatever health reasons, cannot access saunas with higher temperatures or humidity.
A lower temperature of 40 to 60C is significantly safer for people with cardiovascular problems, for children and the elderly. The humidity in the infrared cabin is up to 50%. Infrared radiation is a type of energy that heats directly (without heating the air in between) in a process called conversion. Man perceives infrared light as heat. There are several types of infrared IR light: IR – A shortwave radiation operating in the range 780 to 1400nm, IR – B mediumwave radiation in the range 1400 to 3000nm and IR – C longwave radiation operating in the range above 3000nm.
The IR – A spectrum, which penetrates 40 times deeper into the skin than IR – C radiation, is of particular importance to us in IR saunas. From the above, measurements show that IR – A light can penetrate up to 4 mm deep into our skin and thus not cause harmful effects to our body. Such action of IR light leads to enhanced action of the upper layers of the skin and accelerates blood flow. This achieves the so-called Jogging Effect as the body begins to heat from the inside out.
Infrared baths come with different types of radiation, ranging from classic ceramic and magnesium rod heaters to IR light fixtures and plate IR heaters, which can also be fitted to the sauna wall. The operation or spectrum of IR light varies with the various types of IR heaters in some areas of operation, but when properly installed, all types achieve their purpose or function. When installing heaters, it is definitely crucial where the heaters are installed, since they have to cover as much of the body surface as possible. As a result, the IR booths are generally smaller and designed to accommodate fewer visitors. Only one bench height is installed in the cabin and, as a rule, it sits on them, which is how we use or best “lighten” our body with IR rays.
A steam bath is especially recommended for cleansing the skin and has an effect on muscle relaxation. Very high humidity and temperature have a beneficial effect on the airways, similar to inhaling. The heat accelerates the circulation in the body and helps to release tension in the muscles. With the help of steam, the pores on the skin are opened. This helps to cleanse the skin naturally.The visit usually takes about 10 or 20 minutes. After the visit, we shower with lukewarm water.
