A Finn in Seattle

Posted March 13th, 2019 by admin and filed in Saunas, Uncategorized

When a Finn in Seattle wanted to show his teammates on his multi-cultural soccer team what a genuine Scandinavian Sauna was like, the only choice was one of our saunas at Sacred Rain Healing Center.  To quote, he said it was “the best authentic Finnish sauna in Seattle”.

The Sacred Rain Healing Center installed one of our 8×10 pre-built saunas, as well as an 11 kW Tylo Deluxe heater, to achieve the perfect Scandinavian style sauna bath experience.


Do Saunas Make People Happier?

Do sauna baths make the bathers happier? Though it’s a question without any hard scientific proof, a new study seems to back up the idea that lifestyle choices such as regular use of a sauna (or steam room) does indeed make people happier.

The Washington Post recently published the results of a 2010 Gallup Poll about the world’s 15 happiest countries. In this study, Finland is in a tie for number five, and Denmark and Sweden tie for the number one spot. It’s interesting to note that these three Scandinavian countries have a culture where the regular familial use of the traditional Scandinavian sauna is widespread.

With the already well known benefits of saunas such as increased circulation and relaxation, and the new possibility of increased happiness, what would stop you from indulging in a sauna bath?
