When I went to Finland on 17th December 2012 I stayed in Kylpylähotelli Rantasipi Eden spa in Nokia. I tried an ordinary 80 degree electric sauna and found it strange because everybody is naked and it is difficult to cope with the heat. I also tried the tropical sauna, which was too hot for my bum and I had to leave immediately. I could cope with the aroma sauna a bit better as it was less intense and smelt good. I also went in the sauna in Maria's apartment block an an outside sauna at both Maria's family's house and their summer cottage. We used a sauna whisk (a bundle of birch twigs) to hit each other, which is apparently good for you.
