Sauna highlights the benefits the sauna brings to body and mind, its connection to nature, its history and mythology and its compatibility with another great invigorator – cold water swimming.

There is a new wave of sauna culture spreading throughout the UK and beyond. Saunas are being built in unique settings providing tech-free spaces in which to gather, share stories and enjoy nature. The tradition has a rich history, filled with rituals that encourage us to soak up the mental and physical health benefits of deep heat.

This book honors the old, embraces the new, and plunges headlong into the transformative power of steam.
