SAUNA AND NATURE REINVIGORATE YOUHolistic wellbeing holidays in Muonio
LEAVE THE CITY AND STRESS BEHIND
Wellness services include spa & beauty treatments, sauna, nature activities and locally sourced, healthy foods. Allow yourself to gain inner strength.
Step into the natural world. Nature improves our health and wellbeing in many ways. Muonio’s clean air and waters, and beautiful scenery reduce stress. Our outdoor activities improve physical, as well as spiritual wellbeing.
Moving in nature positively affects our state of mind and allows us to connect with others more positively. Nature is an important aspect of holidaymaking in Muonio. We call it wilderness wellbeing. The silence and polar night in Lapland both improve the quality of sleep, which in turn help to alleviate stress. Let mother nature take care of you.
ARCTIC SUPERFOODS FROM NATURE
The midnight sun gives food plants in Lapland continual light therapy. The white nights of summer heighten the antioxidant and nutrition content of plants in Lapland. Eating these arctic superfoods can also positively impact your health and wellbeing.
SAUNA PURIFIES THE BODY AND MIND
For hundreds of years, sauna has been an important part of Finnish wellbeing. The sauna culture is still strong and lively. The inscription to UNESCO’s Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2020 means that we are committed to fostering the living Finnish sauna tradition in many ways.
Some of the benefits of sauna include relaxation and release of stress. Quality of sleep is also improved. Sweating in the sauna is also a great way to purify the body of various accumulated toxins. The warmth of the sauna also helps to reduce muscle aches and pains.
The combination of taking sauna and dipping in the chilly or icy water (in Finland we dip in natural waters) is also good for our wellbeing in many ways: it balances our energy, improves our tolerance to cold, improves our mental wellbeing, lowers blood pressure, and reduces stress. Transitioning between hot and cold temperatures also helps maintain elasticity in the skin by slowing down the aging process in our cells. (The Finnish Sauna Society)
