Bringing the Finnish culture to the Comox Valley

Saunas have always been a big part of my life. My father hails from Finland and growing up, I enjoyed countless saunas at relative's houses and cottages. One of my most cherished childhood memories was enjoying saunas followed by lake swims at my aunt and uncle's summer cottage. I loved the exhilarating feeling of hot followed by cold and sharing those special times with family.

As an adult, I learned of the many health benefits that saunas bring. These include detoxification, muscle relaxation, protein repair, stress relief, improved cardiovascular function and skin cleansing. Having spent 20+ years working as a Registered Nurse in high stress environments, I was searching for an attainable path to work on the wellness side of healthcare.  Ultimately, I decided that a mobile sauna mounted to a trailer would be the best way to share my passion of sauna with my community.

I hope that you will enjoy your sauna experience as much as I have.
