I thought that I want to know how many know or have been in a sauna. So, have you ever been in a sauna? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/mischievous.gif

Sauna=a little room with a bench and a stove. The benches are usually divided into three parts, (high), middle and low. There are some stones on the stove and you throw water on them after you have heated it up. After throwing water hot steam comes into the room from the hot stove. It's nice being in a sauna and afterwards you feel refreshed. It's also nice to go to ice cold water straight from sauna and quickly back... :D Very many Finnish people have a sauna and I think it's Finnish invention. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/jumper.gif

Yes I do saunas, I prefer them to steam rooms because I have the odd tendency to choke on steam. I have learnt not to wear rings while in the sauna (well...yes...I was that stupid) but I still haven't managed a cold shower afterwards!!!

If you get possibility, Justin, try it. But remember to take all metal things, rings, neclaces etc. away, they burn your skin easily. Actually I have never taken cold shower, but I have swam in the sea...still ice around the hole where you can swim. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/jumper.gif

Well,i got news for the guys....girls dont have to worry.

Guys shouldnt be in sauna TOO MUCH cause having much heat on the body's private part,u know what i mean,could kill the ehem...production of sperm.U might hardly had any kids,well,i m not telling lies,the books says so even my teacher do.

So,guys,keep the heat on certain stage,ya dont wanna end up on fire.

Every chance I get!! My sister has one at her place. And I do the "winter-thing" every winter! Spend some 30 minutes in the sauna, usually in 100 degrees (celcius) with some good friends and then run out through the snow and jumping into the hole in the ice for a swim!

Nothing starts a day better than a dip in icy water! :D

Anyone notice those people fond of the horrifying sauna experience are markedly not American? I cant speak for all Americans, but baking in a little tiny, uncomfortable room with little decent air to breathe, just is not my thing!! I have loathed the two times I tried it.

Now soaking in a hot tub, that's a different story....aaaaaaaaaah

Hi everybody,

http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

I know some Native American Indian cultures (eg: Navajo) use steams baths, especially for ritual cleansing.

Me, I like somewhere you can lie in with a book. (which you can also read if you want to and don't get it wet!)

You don't know what you're missing! Some people just need to try it a few times before they get the "right" feeling for it...

I love saunas! Even like "hitting myself with a stick full of leafs" as some call it... ;) lol! Guess you've got to be brought up with it... :rolleyes:

Well,to some it might ritual stuff so bathing in steam water is ok.Even at nights,people bath with hot water to prevent catching a cold.But,the fact is like,hmm..bathing with too much heat water could interrupt the production of sperm for male gender.That's why u see in movies,gals mostly like to dip in the hot tub not men...yet science shows most japanese hardly had baby boys as they went too much sauna or bathing hot water....hahah..

Necromancy is a forbidden art. :<

And no, I've never been in a sauna. I don't much see the appeal of sitting in a room being steamed like some kind of vegetable, but I guess it'd be interesting.

Been to a day spa which had a sauna, salt water pool, herbal steam room, steam room , saunarium and alot of different showers ranginf from rainforest mist to fast jets that run all over your body. And i would recommend it to anyone. I felt so clean when I got back and so relaxed. Pure bliss and relaxation.

Yeap, didn't like it though. Don't like sweaty people and besides I'm way too skinny to be needing a sauna anyways, I wanna keep my sweat in thanks.
