At the end of August, Almost Heaven Saunas’ president, Rick Mouw, visited Muurame, Finland. The purpose of the trip was to meet with representatives from Harvia, the Finnish sauna experts and manufacturers of high-performance sauna heaters. Here are some of the things that happened while he was there.

 

Living the Life

“I probably did 4 to 6 saunas a day,” Mouw said.

Harvia put him up in a cabin on a lake during his stay, and no Finnish cabin would be complete without a sauna. So although it was a business trip, he found it to be a most relaxing experience. Mouw praised Finland’s natural beauty – lots of lakes with clear, pure water and lots of lush, green vegetation – and he looks forward to returning sometime in the future.

 

Branching Out

Harvia has been supplying Almost Heaven Saunas with exceptional sauna heaters since 2012, and Mouw’s most recent trip proved to be the next step in their relationship. It was decided that Almost Heaven Saunas will now be distributing several Harvia deluxe indoor sauna models.

That puts Almost Heaven Saunas in a position to serve an even wider and more varied array of sauna lovers. We’ll be unveiling these newest models in the coming months.

 

Consumer Awareness

Here at Almost Heaven Saunas, we’ve been watching US sauna sales continue to rise. We believe more and more Americans are recognizing that sauna bathing is a rewarding activity on so many different levels, and we’d like to think that we’ve played a role in opening their eyes. With the added options and input from Harvia, we look forward to doing so well into the future, promoting the authentic sauna experience from east to west and north to south. Wherever you are, a home sauna is a welcome addition to any home.

“The warmth of the sauna attracts us for different reasons. Sauna helps us to relax, to have a good time in good company, or simply to take a moment to ourselves. The comforting warmth of the sauna comes in many forms – in the traditional Finnish wood-heated sauna, the urban city home bathroom sauna, or the modern infrared cabin. We can enjoy sauna in summer as well as winter, in everyday life, or to celebrate special occasions. Sauna can tell many stories.” ~ Harvia sales brochure
