HUUM, Sauna History, Culture, Health & Construction, by Siim Nellis (English Translation, 2023)

This book recognizes and celebrates the sauna in all it's varieties and implications. What is it about the sauna that makes us love it? It may be that the sauna lets us reconnect with nature and ourselves - perhaps the mere fact that the sauna allows us to be naked and feel good about it makes us love sauna. Or perhaps love of sauna grows out of its effect on our psyche, diminishing stress and helping us let go of everyday anxieties. The sauna also allows us to experience interpersonal warmth, among friends and family. The sauna is being embraced all over the globe with new-found enthusiasm.

Standing on the shoulders of giants such as Tamara Habicht, Martti Vuorenjuuri and Sir Erasmus Wilson, our goal has been to bring this knowledge in to the present context and explore less developed paths.

In this book you will find a unified vocabulary of the sauna, narrowing the multitude of terms and concepts populating literature, you will find Estonian historical literature translated from Old German, find Estonian Architectural history, medical findings; all accounts point to the fact that we need sauna!
