The sauna is the heart of our facilities. Löyly is the Finnish word for the steam that envelopes you when water is thrown on the hot sauna rocks. This steam is essential to the sauna experience, its soft heat warming the body and relaxing the mind. In the Finnish tradition, sauna is a place where everyone is equal and you “leave your worries with your shoes.”
This philosophy is what our business is built on. Sauna Culture is about the simple joy of communal sauna, a place to cleanse, relax, and emerge ready for the world again. We believe in better living through radiance, that the warm after-glow of a sauna session should be a regular part of life.
What To Expect
A step-by-step procedure. With Illustrations.
On check-in you will be given a small towel, a pefletti, required to sit on in the sauna, as well as a larger towel for drying or wearing in the lounge area. You will also receive sandals and a lock for your locker. The number on this lock will be your number for your visit and will match your locker and towel hook in the lounge. Robes are included with all massage services, and optional for a $3 rental for a basic visit. Please do not bring your own towels or robe.
The facility includes 1 locker room, which is shared during all hours, mixed and single-gender. Swimsuits are required during mixed-gender hours, and a changing stall is available for your comfort.
Our facility is modeled after traditional Scandinavian saunas. This means the facility is designed to be utilitarian, sanitary and accommodate a large number of people. We do not have soft couches or blankets, but a minimal lounge with wooden benches for cooling and relaxing between sauna sessions.
Since we are a communal facility, based on a model of regular relaxation, you can expect to share the facility with many people. This way we are able to provide our sauna services for an affordable entry fee. If you choose to add a massage to your visit, our treatment rooms are very comfortable, and the services of the highest quality. We will find you when it is time for your service.
We encourage soft voices during your visit and especially while in the close quarters of the sauna. While talking is not prohibited, the discussion in the sauna should be of the level that other bathers could take part in if he or she wishes to do so.
Public displays of affection and sexual behavior of any kind is not allowed in our facility.
Do not come to the sauna when you are ill as doing so could affect others. If do you happen to feel unwell ask for assistance if necessary and leave the sauna.
If you choose to use the facility while pregnant, please speak to your healthcare provider about your use of hot rooms before your appointment.
How To Sauna
In addition to washing off the dust and cares of the day, please take the time to wash away any trace of perfume or lotion before entering the sauna. Please refrain from using heavily perfumed hair conditioners or any products that could soil the sauna benches.
Bring your Pefletti to sit on and your towel or robe to wear in between sauna sessions. Hang your extra towel or robe on your numbered hook before entering the sauna.
It is polite to ask the other bathers, either when entering or leaving the sauna, if they would like to have more water thrown on the sauna rocks. Our sauna water is lightly-scented with a mixture of oils, including the traditional smoky-smelling birch tar oil.
Stay in the sauna for as long as you feel comfortable, for some it is 10-20 minutes. When you are ready to leave, bring your Pefletti with you.
We recommend a rinse off in cold water. Then take your time relaxing in the lounge. A good guide to follow is to cool off for as long as you heated. Drink plenty of water. We have tea, kombucha and sparkling water for purchase, as well as light snacks.
Follow this for as many rounds as you feel. An average series of sessions is 3 times heating and cooling.
You should feel relaxed and refreshed after your sauna. The word that best describes the feeling after a sauna session is recreated.
Enjoy and visit us again soon!
