Sauna Health Benefits

The sauna is an ancient practice that is featured in many diverse cultures around the globe.

The physiological effects of the sauna are more than just an indulgence, however; to this day, medical researchers are continually discovering new health benefits that saunas can provide.

If there’s one thing that all saunas—wet or dry—have in common, it is that they cause you to sweat.

I love coming here to relax. Come here, hit the wet or dry sauna, cold plunge, relax and have a nice lunch, and just hang out. I'd recommend the pierogi, and a beer. Then back to the saunas. I always leave feeling great.

Nice facilities, helpful staff, with surprisingly excellent food. I'd love to see less gentleman sausage constantly but that's tough to avoid in this type of place.

Easy to miss this place but it's legit. Dry sauna, steam sauna, and cold pool are the main attractions. Food is great here too.
