Stauna - a combination of sauna and steam bathing all in one.
The art and tradition of varying the conditions in a steam bath date back to Roman times and before; different rooms were often used with variations in the temperature and humidity to provide different experiences.
Nowadays thanks to digital controls a broad variation of conditions can be experienced in a single room; our traditional stauna heater combines a steam generator with a sauna heater with a controller that allows a number of settings as follows –
Sauna – the traditional dry air bathing with temperatures from 75 to around 100C – water can be splashed onto the rocks for short bursts of humidity – the tradition dates back more than 2000 years.
Tepidarium – hot steam bathing with temperatures from 55 to 65C the steamer operates for 80% of the time – provides a superb and invigorating hot steam experience.
Sanarium – soft steam with temperatures from 48 to 55C the steamer operates around 90% of the time for a softer more gentle experience to melt away aches or ease the strains of a stressful day.
Caldarium – 100% steaming – temperatures up to 48C the steamer is also operating continuously – add crushed herbs or a few drops of essential oil to the steamer for aromatherapy treatments to suit your mood.
Special water resistant coating - in order to cope with the differing conditions and the high levels of humidity staunacoat barrier treatment is applied to all of the internal surfaces of the cabin walls ceiling and benches to stop water being absorbed.
