The Solana Salt Sauna is an interesting new element of the SPA and Wellness Zone. The negative ionisation of the air created by salt in a salt sauna will relax you and give you a feeling of freshness. Gentle lighting, warm colours and appropriate music will allow you to relax perfectly in the “company” of over 250 million years old salt. We can emphasise the modern character of the interior of your zone, for example, by using white crystal salt stones with a selected type of matching lighting.
We offer comprehensive construction of any salt sauna — see our projects. We are open to your needs — each sauna is designed according to individual preferences and can be equipped with selected accessories. It is also possible to combine a salt sauna with other types of saunas. We also offer Finnish and steam saunas.
Please also take a look at our offer to install a salt graduation tower in your area. This interesting idea of developing the area outside a hotel, guesthouse or house fits perfectly with the concept of extending the wellness and spa zone beyond the facility and diversifying the offer without the need to expand or change the design. Find out more here.
Our company, Solana, can boast a large number of successfully completed projects and almost twenty years of experience in working with salt and its use for health and relaxation. For this we thank you.
Salt saunas, in addition to the salt cave, inhalation room and brine graduation tower, are elements that strengthen our skills and allow us to better serve and develop your business in harmony with nature and the expectations of increasingly demanding and aware guests.
We thank you for your trust and invite you to familiarise yourself with our offer for building a salt sauna and to contact us.

Finnish salt sauna
What does a Finnish sauna look like?
The Finnish sauna, as the name suggests, has its roots in Finland, where it is part of the local tradition and is still found in many homes. It is a room built of wood or lined with wood. It is usually made of cedar or Canadian fir. Inside there are benches, usually staggered, also made of wood. The air in a Finnish sauna is dry, with about 15% humidity, which is why it is often called a dry sauna. The temperature inside is between 80 and 120 degrees. The sauna
How do we use this type of sauna?
You should stay in the Finnish sauna for about 8 to 12 minutes. An important aspect is what you wear. Avoid wearing swimsuits and wrapping yourself too tightly in a towel. It is best to stay naked in the sauna so that the body heats up in the most appropriate way. We sit or lie down on benches and avoid walking. After the appropriate time, we go outside and cool the body in the shower, in the cool air, in the snow or in a tank of water, depending on the conditions. We dry ourselves and repeat the cycle up to 2 or 3 times. Salt sauna
What are the health benefits of a Finnish sauna?
Using this sauna has a number of health benefits. The increase in body temperature caused by the sauna accelerates blood circulation, improves blood supply to the internal organs, accelerates metabolism and helps to eliminate toxins. Alternating heating and cooling of the body hardens it and activates the body’s defence mechanisms, which results in increased immunity.
Treatments in the Finnish sauna bring relief to people suffering from rheumatic pains, muscular pains, asthma, peripheral circulatory disorders, anaemia, low blood pressure and skin problems, especially those prone to eczema. In addition, using this sauna improves digestion and speeds up metabolism, which will certainly be appreciated by people who want to lose weight or simply want to keep it off. A visit to a Finnish sauna is also an effective way to relax and unwind, as the heat improves your mood, relieves mental tension and eliminates fatigue. This is why it is recommended for people suffering from depression and long-term stress and neurosis. Salt sauna

A salt sauna is a relatively new idea for using salt and its healing properties. It is also an interesting opportunity to develop and expand the offer of SPA and wellness zones. By using salt elements in the sauna, we will not only create a unique interior that promotes relaxation, but also enhance the health benefits of the sauna. The salt in the salt sauna causes the air inside to be negatively ionised and enriched with minerals. Finnish salt sauna
What does a salt sauna do to the body?
A salt sauna works in a similar way to a salt cave. Negatively ionised air, full of natural minerals, strengthens and cleanses the respiratory tract, soothes irritations, strengthens the mucous membranes in the respiratory tract, which greatly contributes to the overall improvement of the body’s immunity.
Minerals found in a salt sauna include
- Calcium — strengthens mucous membranes, increases immunity, soothes irritations, regulates the functions of the circulatory system,
- Iodine — supports the proper functioning of the thyroid gland,
- Magnesium — acts on the circulatory and nervous systems, supports regeneration after exercise,
- Potassium, Sodium — has a positive effect on the heart, improves blood supply to the skin and organs,
- Iron — improves blood structure, is a component of haemoglobin,
- Selenium — has a positive effect on the condition of the skin.
Moreover, a stay in a salt sauna is an excellent form of relaxation. Soft lighting in the room and often atmospheric music create a unique atmosphere in which we can spend a pleasant time, calm our nerves and reduce muscle tension. Finnish dry salt sauna
