Sauna is a perfect option for getting rid of stress, relax, and heal. From classic times, various nations have created their versions of saunas. The old Russians, for example, simply adored saunas as they had a small bath in their houses. They even have a special quote: The owner in the village is the one who has the best bath.

The old Russian saunas (banya) had special wooden structures where people were cleaned, treated, and even performed special rituals and divinations. That is why Russian saunas are still used for medicinal purposes.


The temperature in the sauna reaches up to 100°C, which helps to quickly remove excess fluid from the body.

Steam and heat dilates skin pores and removes toxins from the body. As a result, skin becomes smooth, firmer, and without cellulite.
