Through its smoky walls, the smoke sauna offers a voyage to the beginnings of the Finnish culture: the time when traditions associated with sauna were an integral part of everyone’s life. Sauna also combines all the basic elements, fire, water, earth and air, in a natural and traditionally Finnish way.
Fire offers the spark for the sauna oven and heats the stones and soon the whole sauna space with its flames. Water flows to the hot sauna stones when poured, forming steam that fills the sauna. Water reappears on the skin after the sauna during washing, cleaning the black marks left by the smoke sauna. The element of earth supports the foundation and walls of the sauna building. Earth also manifests itself through the sauna stones, bringing stability to the sauna space and among the people there; the strong sauna benches make it easy to breathe and relax. The element of air transports the steam to those the sitting on the benches, bringing pleasure and healing power. Air also brings creative thinking with it through the small cracks in the sauna walls, the ventilation window and the door gap. Even the greatest dreams can take flight, coming forth in a relaxed and receptive environment.
Ideas get a spark for their realisation from fire; flowing power from water; a strong ground for growth from earth; and further new and refined ideas, carried by dreams and aspirations, from air. In this way, the positive circulation of the elements becomes a part of every sauna experience, providing strength and liveliness through relaxation and the creation of new ideas. Having a sauna in a smoke sauna is a comprehensively relaxing and enlightening experience.
