The differences between a sauna and a Turkish bath

Saunas and Turkish baths offer many different benefits but the feeling of wellbeing is the same.



What is the main difference between a sauna and a Turkish bath?

Firstly, the two treatments have very different origins: the heat bath comes from Nordic countries, while the steam bath from the Mediterranean.

The main difference, however, can be found in the effect they have on our body.

Finnish saunas, for centuries a truly purifying ritual, today offer an excellent way of obtaining maximum relaxation and achieving all-round detoxificationpurification and elasticity of the skin, thanks to the positive effects of very hot and dry air.

This heat bath is particularly recommended for anyone wanting to relax and get rid of the stress of their everyday lives, but it is also great for people who play sport: it actually helps recovery, preparing the muscles for effort.

Thanks to their natural ability to relax the muscles, Finnish saunas are the ideal remedy to relieve localised conditions such as muscular or osteoarticular traumas.

A bio-sauna, on the other hand, is a sauna with a temperature of between 50 and 60° C and humidity of around 60-70%. Thanks to its built-in vaporiser, if you set your preferred temperature, the bio-sauna stove creates the perfect balance between heat and humidity.

The combined Effe system lets you choose between a bio-sauna, a halfway house between the Finnish sauna and the Mediterranean nature of the steam bath, or a traditional sauna with low humidity and a temperature of up to 100 °C.
