Snow for the Sauna - A New Way of Cooling Down

Cooling down in the snow is good for you and stimulates the senses in a variety of ways. Deep breathing refreshes the lungs, and cold air cools the body from head to toe. The wintry surroundings delight the eye, while a subtle fragrance and matching acoustics create a relaxing mood. All this happens in just a few minutes in the fresh, snowy landscape. It is also possible to invigorate the body by rubbing it with fresh snow.

The Power of Cold

The use of cold is an essential part of the sauna and has particular potential for health and wellbeing. In contrast to the traditional wet cooling down applications, the snow sauna is a dry cold. This is a very pleasant process even for those who don’t like being in a cold environment.

Snow for Good Health

Cold has always been used to strengthen the immune system and promote blood circulation. These effects are particularly noticeable with the alternating application of cold and heat, a process that also stimulates the metabolism. The snow sauna offers a very gentle cold. At -10 ° C, the body cools down continuously over several minutes. The experience is intensified depending on the length of stay, and the individual need to cool down.
