“The sauna is the poor man’s pharmacy.”
That’s the traditional Finnish saying. The Finns learned years ago that the sauna is not just a bath; it provides a sense of psychological peace and contentment as well as physical rejuvenation. Many people claim that the sauna relieves the symptoms of minor illnesses such as colds, revives the muscles after tough physical exertion, and clears the body of toxins.
The Uljas Koitto Temperance Society promotes temperance, morality, and healthy living through the benefits and virtues of the traditional Finnish sauna. Founded by Finnish immigrants in 1892, the UKTS provides an environment free from the influence of alcohol, illegal drugs, or legal recreational drugs.
We are a welcoming society and invite those interested in learning more about the UKTS to use the Contact Us form on this website.
