A Typical Day at the Spa
General rules of thumb:

Relax, shut off your phone, forget about everyday matters, and prepare to enjoy a cultural tradition of renewal that dates back hundreds of years.

If you have any questions, please don't be shy and ask the host!

1.  After changing in the dressroom, give your locker key to the host and set about making preparations... soak your birch or oak "slotas" in the tubs provided, order some tea, a beer, or something light to eat from the kitchen. If you are hungry for real food, we recommend eating after the sauna. Our chef is generous!

2.  When you are ready to warm up, start in the steam room. The heat here is less dry and more gentle. No birch leaves here. Warm up a few times before moving to the much hotter main sauna.

3.  With each visit to the main sauna, work your way up to the hottest benches up top. Not hot enough? Check with thte others before throwing water onto the rocks behind the steel doors and be careful!

4.  After 2-3 times in the sauna and seeing how to use the birch and oak "slotas," work yourself over or ask a friend. The main idea is to channel heat. For maximum effect, stay until you can barely stand it and then try a plunge in the cold pool!

5.  A salt scrub further cleanses your pores and skin. Honey softens, conditions, and provides nutrients. Use both when you are warm - the honey becomes like oil and absorbs better when your pores are open. Rinse off before the pool. Repear the heating process 3-5 times, depending on your endurance.

6.  Please be considerate of others and clean up after yourself. The host will take your used towels, flip-flops, and similar items.

7.  Enjoy the great feeling you have for the rest of the day! Drink lots of water!
