proven health benefits
of sauna

Our team is on a mission to alleviate stress and anxiety. Our CEO and founder, Justin Juntunen, grew up with this incredible practice, saw the ways sauna draws people nearer to stress relief, and knew that the community of Duluth, MN was the perfect place to offer sauna at it’s highest quality. 

After centuries of practice, it’s been proven that stress relief isn’t the only benefit traditional saunas provide for our health. An in-depth study by the Mayo Clinic takes a deep dive into proven benefits the Finnish have touted for generations.

Traditional Nordic Sauna has been found to:

  • Alleviate pain and inflammation
  • Reduce blood pressure
  • Reduce risk of stroke
  • Reduce risk of all-cause mortality
  • Reduce risk of Alzheimers and dementia
  • Improve lung function
  • Improve headache disorders
  • Improve sleep
  • Enhance physical function, vitality, social functioning, and general health
  • Improve immune function

Check out this video for a general overview of our Duluth Experience: Duluth Sauna Experience Overview

All sauna/cold plunge experiences are reserved in advance and include an experienced sauna guide to help you throughout your entire session. We have three saunas on-site — private, social, and floating. Each session also includes the harborside natural cold plunge, which is completely optional, and not required, as well as many other amenities outlined below. 

As a Cedar and Stone guest, you get to regulate what the session looks like as far as how long you stay in the sauna, if/when you cold plunge or cool off outdoors, and how you integrate the other components to the experience such as aromatherapy, Lӧyly (the Finnish word for sauna steam, or “spirit of the sauna”), the sauna guide, and rehydrating beverages. We encourage you to listen to your body, and have created the perfect space to do so.

Just a swimsuit. It is also a great idea to bring some sandals or flip-flops, especially in the wintertime so you don’t freeze your toes on our Duluth snow. 

Some guests choose to bring a robe as well, but that is optional. We will take care of the rest.

Fresh towels, showers, changing rooms, local tea, and more amenities to make you comfortable are all provided as part of all of our sauna experiences.

Many people only know sauna from their local gym or by the pool in the hotel. This usually looks like hopping into the sauna for a few minutes after their workout.

Yet, not many people know the full practice of sauna – hot, cold, rest, rehydrate, and repeat – the thermic cycle. This cycle is wherein we receive many of benefits from sauna, such as stress relief, wellness support, and more. 

Sauna is so much more than just sitting in a hot room. Let us teach you how to sauna well, soaking up the heat and the cold for the full experience. 

This process in our space is guided as much or as little as you like. If you are a sauna veteran who wants very little extra support, we will gladly give you the space to enjoy. If you are new, curious, and want someone to walk you through more of the process, we are happy to help.

Traditional Nordic Sauna usually ranges from 160-200℉. 🌡️

For private sauna sessions you can request a warmer or lower temperature within this range, and for our public and social sessions we aim for temperatures around 175-185℉.

Here’s a quick temperature guide for sauna on your own:

160-180℉ – Soft Heat: perfect for those who are new to sauna or averse to high heat and children.
180-200℉ – Invigorating Heat: ideal for intermediate and experienced sauna users.
200℉ + – Expert Level Heat: unless you’re an old Finn who’s been in the sauna for decades, be careful exceeding 200℉ for safety.

Here are some of our favorite tips to provide our guests with before they head into the cold plunge:

1. Wear footwear – the cold receptors in our feet make this part of our body get cold FAST. Wearing socks or neoprene shoes can allow you to stay in longer, which increases the benefit of the plunge. 
2. Breathwork – practice mindful breathing before jumping in. We recommend deep, full breaths, and practicing this beforehand is a great way to set yourself up for cold plunge success. 
3. Bring a friend – having a support system to either partake with you or to cheer you on from the sidelines not only bolsters your courage but provides a sense of safety as well. 
4. Listen to your body – just because somebody else cold plunges for 3-5 minutes doesn’t mean that you should too. You are in control of how long you want to stay in and when your body is telling you it’s time to get out.

Our Sauna Guides are professionally trained to answer any and all questions before,  during, or after your plunge. If you have never cold plunged before, introducing cold exposure through short cold showers can be a great way to begin this practice. 

We provide the highest quality sauna experiences with thoughtful Nordic design and natural cold plunge. Our saunas are built with exquisite beauty at the forefront.

We think of heat like many think about good food or fine wine. We think in terms of quality.

Our public floating sauna and social sauna utilize wood-fired stoves, and our private sauna integrates more modern technology with an aesthetically appealing Huum electric stove encompassed by hundreds of pounds of sauna rocks.

Every one of our sauna experiences welcomes Lӧyly (the Finnish word for sauna steam, or “spirit of the sauna”).

And until you have had the best quality, you don’t really know what you are missing out on. If you like things that are done well, of the highest quality, and with attention to each detail, we know you will enjoy some time here at Cedar & Stone.
