The Nordic bath ritual provides total body relaxation and allows you to eliminate toxins through perspiration. Alternately exposing the body to heat and cold, followed by a period of rest, stimulates your blood circulation and raises your heart rate. The resulting sensation is invigorating.

Through the use of Nordic baths, you can reduce the pain of rheumatoid arthritis, relieve stress and encourage better sleeping habits, while improving blood circulation.
A unique thermal experience in the Finnish tradition
In Finland, a country of frozen lakes and saunas, taking a swim in ice-cold water is a custom which, according to Finns, is excellent for one’s health. The increased blood flow brings more oxygen and nutrients to the skin, which boosts the production of collagen, the molecule responsible for skin elasticity.
Nothing cleans the skin better than having a good sweat - it is even much more effective than soap and water! Hot steam dilates the pores of the skin and perspiration pushes embedded impurities out. Dermatologists and aestheticians use this steam action to remove skin impurities.
The regular use of a steam rooms contributes to better overall hygiene for our body’s largest organ, the skin.
