What is it ?

Saunas provide dry heat in a wood-paneled room from a stove. The stove heats rocks, which radiate heat throughout the room. A sauna may have small amount of steam when water is poured over the hot rocks, but the level of humidity typically ranges between 5 and 30%. The temperature goes from 70 to 100 degrees Celsius. It is basically a dry version of the hammam at a higher temperaure. Bathing sessions alternate with jumps into a cold plunge or shower and rest at room temperature before another around.
