From today’s Inforum, The Forum of Fargo-Moorehead there appears an article about authentic saunas and an interview with Michael Nordskog, author of “The Opposite of Cold: The Northwoods Finnish Sauna Tradition.”
North Dakota is a land of many saunas, thanks to a great sauna climate as well as being a land of Norweigen bachelor farmers.
You can read in the article how traditional saunas provide therapeutic benefits, benefits that are a real need in today’s society (escape, chilling out). Further, you can read about how sauna’s are growing in popularity. We know this already, of course, as more and more people recognize that having their own sauna is not just “Euro chic” but a great investment.
