Welcome to North American Sauna Society home pages.
New! If you are a member and wish to attend our annual meeting, it will be held in NYC on July 17 at 9AM. Please contact us for more information.
The North American Sauna Society is a not-for-profit association, whose mission is to provide correct and neutral information about Traditional Saunas in North America; their benefits, and proper usage. We are a membership-funded organization with members being sauna dealers and sauna manufacturers. Our services are meant for the general audience interested in saunas.
Please bear in mind that due to our nature as a not-for-profit, we cannot give legal advice. We are committed to giving information on basic sauna ideas, sauna bathing and sauna culture. Please contact your sauna manufacturer for info regarding safety and legal issues.
There is an information overflow, when one wants to acquire a sauna. Sauna involves not the only the actual sauna room, but a place to change, to cool off, to take showers, to socialize, and so forth. Please check our new “Design Guidelines” page, aimed at everyone interested in making the sauna experience as enjoyable as possible.
If you acquired our plaque and want to show off, please take a picture of it hanging on the wall, send it to us via email to: email@example.com and we try to make sure we put it in with our other sauna pictures.
International sauna society has launched a new coffee-table book about the Finnish Sauna, please go to the Links section for more info. If you wish to purchase your own copy, send us an email.
This website has been divided to different sections. There is a site map to help you get around.
