In Estonia, sauna culture is deeply rooted, with a history stretching back centuries. The sauna has always been a place for relaxation, cleansing, and socializing, exemplified by the UNESCO recognition of the smoke sauna tradition in Võrumaa as an intangible cultural heritage.

However, in recent years, hot tubs have been gaining popularity, offering an alternative way to relax. Life constantly evolves, so modern solutions provide new angles for relaxation. Based on our experience, one does not exclude the other. On the contrary, saunas and hot tubs complement each other, offering an even richer relaxation experience when used together.


Sauna and Its Benefits

A sauna is much more than just a hot room—it’s part of Estonian culture and traditions. The most important aspect of a sauna, however, is its health benefits. Sauna sessions improve circulation and help the body eliminate toxins accumulated in daily life. Various studies have shown that stress is one of the most common causes of health problems. A sauna is a place to take time to relax and rest. In this cozy, quiet, and warm spot, there are no distracting factors. The hot sauna relaxes muscles, improves circulation, and releases endorphins. Studies have also shown that regular sauna use can help lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart disease.

The sauna has always been a place where families and friends can spend time together. It is an ideal place for deep conversations and bonding. The sauna experience can be particularly pleasant and memorable when shared with loved ones.


Hot Tubs: Convenience and Simplicity

Hot tubs have become popular precisely because of their convenience and simplicity. They offer a unique way to relax, which can be experienced in the middle of nature, in your backyard, or in the fresh air.

Hot water and the massage effect help relieve muscle tension and pain, especially after physical exercise or a long workday. The heat dilates blood vessels, improving circulation and speeding up muscle recovery.

Soaking in warm water helps reduce stress levels. The combination of hot water and massage jets releases endorphins in the body, which act as natural painkillers and mood enhancers. Additionally, the calm environment of the hot tub promotes meditation and peace of mind.

A hot tub can be installed almost anywhere—in the garden, on the terrace, or at the cottage. It requires no special construction work and is sometimes more affordable than a sauna. Also, a hot tub is easy to use and maintain, making it a convenient choice.


Sauna and Hot Tub Together: The Ideal Combination

If both have their advantages, why not enjoy both? Saunas and hot tubs complement each other and together provide a complete relaxation experience.

By alternating between the sauna and the hot tub, you can maximize their health benefits. The sauna helps remove toxins from the body and improves circulation, while the hot tub helps relax muscles and reduce stress. Combined use offers more comprehensive and deeper relaxation.

Saunas and hot tubs together create an excellent environment for socializing. The sauna is a place for deep conversations and sharing traditions, while the hot tub allows for relaxation and enjoying peaceful moments with friends and family. Used together, these two offer various ways to spend time and strengthen social bonds.

For example, our selection includes the OAASSAUNA, an ideal choice for sauna enthusiasts who want to make the most of their sauna experience. The set includes a two-room outdoor sauna with a steam room that accommodates four people and a hot tub that holds up to six people, equipped with a 30 kW integrated heater for quick water heating.
