Having a session in a smoke sauna is the most traditional way to sauna in Nowene. The timber walls have many old stories to tell. The living fire in the sauna oven heats the large, stony heart of the sauna. The smoke flows through the stones and exits through special smoke holes in the ceiling and walls.

Saunas predate recorded history.

Sauna is a haven of tranquillity
Tranquillity has a healing effect. Once it was the highest teacher and a source of wisdom for the humanity. A significant number of relaxing experiences still come from the sauna. The sauna is a haven of tranquillity, a safe space that gives strength to go out and face your long-rejected problems.
Even in the midst of a busy lifestyle, all people carry a tranquil space in them. One can learn to draw strength from this tranquil inner world and Finnish people have learned to do so by going to sauna. Going back to simple thinking and listening to your inner voice is an experience that makes people genuine. Sauna is the Finnish equivalent to meditation.
