Sauna possesses multiple relaxing qualities including the repetitive ambient sounds. Many people use audio as a form of therapy anyway so I thought, why not make a “Finnish” form of this?
Sometimes in my spare time I record audio or music. As I frequently sauna, it occurs to me that it possesses multiple relaxing qualities including the repetitive ambient sounds. Many people use audio as a form of therapy anyway so I thought, why not make a “Finnish” form of this? The result is this audio clip, one hour long, which anyone can use if they for whatever reason cannot go to an actual sauna as often as they’d like. Try it and see what you think, give it a like if you enjoy. 🙂
Wear good headphones and listen at a comfortable volume.
“Fresh birch wood is chopped and prepared for your session as you make your way, the previous day’s snowfall crunching under bare feet; they easily warm by the stove, which lights effortlessly. To your satisfaction, the snow soon melts and slides away down the vinyl rooftop. Dew occasionally drips then sizzles against the stones, as the enclosure steadily approaches a toasty 90 degrees celsius. Let the crackling flames and gentle rattle of the stove door lift your sorrows away. The night air carries the sweet notes of friends singing folksongs of old in the cabin nearby, not to mention the spicy notes of a delicious meal which awaits you upon your return!
At long last! Feel the löyly steam slap your skin, opening your pores… then become quickly refreshed again by cool and clean spring water from the ladle.
After one last hurrah, finally unwind in a chair outdoors as steam rises off you toward the theater of clearest starry night sky above, and awaken to the realization: the formerly wretched, wicked cold is now weak as a kitten… the sauna has transferred its strength into you.”
