Mythical aura of sauna visited in the Milwaukee Journal.

An authentic sauna by Midwestern shores. Note the fabulous outside chill out zone – area to allow body to cool down between sauna rounds.

Gary Porter wrote this excellent piece on the traditional Finnish sauna experience in today’s Milwaukee Journal Sentinel newspaper.  Gary summarizes the Finnish history of sauna, and helps the reader locate places to visit of historical interest.  Gary accurately describing the sauna experience: “steam rising from water hitting the rocks takes on a near-mystical aura; the term for it in Finnish is löyly, meaning “spirit, breath, soul,” as it pierces through the body.”
