The sauna originates from ancient Finland – a bathing custom to reap a variety of health benefits that were later believed to have a spiritual significance too. There is an old saying, still heard in Finland today, which translates as – “In the sauna one must conduct himself as one would in church.” The importance of the Sauna as a place of sanctuary, with its rewards to both body and mind, are still held today and has become popular belief worldwide.
Boundary Stables sauna is a wooden, Finnish style sauna room with two tiers and headrests (the hottest level being at the top.) As the sauna heats up, pouring cold water onto the hot coals will add moisture to the air and eases breathing (and any stress!) There are many scientifically proven health benefits of sauna use including: opening the skins pores, help ease cold symptoms and muscle tension and rejuvenating the skin. To get the most out of a sauna session, allow it to heat up fully for 30mins and drink plenty of water to remain hydrated. It is recommended to take a warm shower beforehand (help perspiration,) spending up to 15mins in the sauna and finish off with a cold shower.
