Re: Ever been to a sauna?

My sister has got one in her house in Austria.
Don't really see the point, unless they're full of half naked hot women, as 20V says.
If you want to sweat, go out and do some exercise for Gods sake!

Re: Ever been to a sauna?

Being to a sauna is nice, and the cold shower afterwards is even nicer. What I never understood was the flogging with tree branches routine, that's beyond me. Care to explain, honourable Finnish members of the board

Never understood it either, and never done it... but I bet it has something to do with trying to confuse foreigners

So the true meaning of the "saunavihta" will remain a mystery

Re: Ever been to a sauna?

It's true a cold shower is nice after the Sauna, but....We have our own Sauna, and we always ask people that use it, to take a shower before. If you share the Sauna with others it's a considerate thing to do. It removes unwanted odors.

Besides the wash/shower also moistens the skin, and removes the fat sitting in the pores, so it makes the Sauna experience more comfortable

Apart form the Sauna, have anyone tried a traditional Turkish Bath with Massage? Man that is scary!! they beat you to a pulp and rip whatever Holiday Tan you have right off your back!! Never again


PS. We used Birch Branches with leaves a few times. It seems to give a cooling effect.

I think it's something similar, so: Does anyone know what a Hamman is?
