“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, UKTS provides an environment free from the influence of alcohol.
The sauna is open to the public on Saturday’s, mid-April to mid-November. Winter saunas are held every other week mid-November through mid-April along with New Years Day and other special events.
We invite you to come on down and join us!
