Sweating and beating yourself with twigs – a perfect Saturday night? For old Estonians it definitely was. Long before modern spas brought sauna all over the world, it was an important part of everyday life for Estonian peasants for centuries. Once a week, normally on Saturday, the sauna would be heated up and carefully made birch twig whisks would be soaked in hot water in preparation for a night of cleansing and healing. This tradition runs so deep in the Estonian culture that even nowadays the Saturday sauna nights have not gone anywhere. For both old and young Estonians sauna still means gathering up your family or best friends, sweating your troubles away, jumping into refreshing lake water or rolling in the snow and enjoying a nice cold beer.
Anyone who has ever been to the sauna knows that feeling of being super clean afterwards, clean in a way you just never feel after a shower. This is a result of boosted blood circulation and intense sweating, which help to remove dead skin cells and clean out pores. Sauna is also well-known to soothe muscle and joint pains, both chronic or caused by intense physical activity. And definitely not least important – sauna is great for relaxation and stress relief. Bathing in the comforting heat and enjoying a quiet time without distractions is a wonderful way to unplug and get re-energized. Have a nice sauna session in the evening and you are very likely to sleep well and wake up feeling refreshed the next morning.
