Three tons of natural Baltic amber was used to install the first and the biggest in the world natural amber sauna located in Lithuania. Resembling a cosy and luxurious amber room, this sauna is the first in the world amber sauna open to the public. Ceilings, walls and even sauna beds are covered with natural amber.
The sauna interior is coated with 3 tonnes of natural amber
To the amber sauna is give the name of the Sun (“Saulės“). Its area is 22 square meters, there will comfortably fit up to 15 people at the time.
The first and largest natural amber sauna in the world is installed at the recreation and health complex „Atostogu parkas“. The installation process of the amber sauna lasted nearly a year – there were a thorough study and discussion with experts on how for the best of people’s health to use the properties of amber which is called the Lithuanian gold. Among other things, the sauna was intended to be installed very aesthetically.
„The main goal for us was, how to correctly use such useful mineral as amber for the benefits of human’s health. We have discussed with scientist and almost after a year we got the result. The interaction between amber and infrared rays was the answer to us” – says the amber sauna creator and director of “Atostogu parkas” Ricardas Jovaisa.
According to R. Jovaisa, in order that amber acid (Succinic acid) released by infra-red rays would leave a significant impact on the human's well-being and health, there should be lots of amber. Also, aesthetical and physical sensations while surrounded by the beauty of natural amber is extremely warm and bright.
Infra-red rays release the beneficial properties of amber
Around 35-140 mln. years ago formed amber (fossilized tree resin) has properties and one of the most important is – amber acid (Succinic acid). Human’s body produces a small amount of amber acid (Succinic acid), but with increased physical and physiological activities, the recourses of Succinic acid is rapidly reduced, therefore the immune system is weekend, also feeling tiredness and apathy.
Amber acid (succinic acid) passes into the human’s body through a diffusion method, in contact with amber, being massaged with amber or very small parts of it can be inhaled.
University of Hamburg, Germany, has confirmed the traditional positive and safe effects of amber and fumaric acid on human metabolism.
With the help of infrared rays in a natural amber sauna, along with amber, the human body is also warmed up. The body relaxes and heats up in a deeper layer while amber releases volatile substances.
The sauna pleasant smells of resin, the human body through the skin and by inhalation more easily absorb the useful properties of amber: stimulates metabolic processes, suppresses various inflammation, improves blood circulation.
