As Saunatimes expands into the realm of public sweat bathing, there is no better place to start the journey than in Chicago at Chicago Sweatlodge. This is a well thought out facility offering an authentic banya experience via two hot rooms: the wet sauna and the dry sauna.
The stoves are top notch. 5,000 pounds of rocks in each. Matter of fact, in summer, Chicago Sweatlodge switches out the rocks once a year. It takes four days for the rocks to cool down, and even then gloves are needed to take out the old rocks. Imagine the sweat the workers get switching out the rocks at Chicago Sweatlodge.
We experience dense heat at Chicago Sweatlodge.
Bill Trotter and I have a great visit and I am pleased to bring you this episode of Sauna Talk.
