The guide includes information on making a traditional Finnish savusauna, how to build your own wood-burning stove, how to select an appropriate electric or gas heater, how to properly ventilate and insulate a sauna, how to select the best sauna rocks, and much more. It also includes detailed plans on how to build and use a Native American inspired sweatlodge. For thousands of years people around the globe, have physically and mentally benefited from the relaxing heat of the sweat bath. "Sitting in a sweat bath could be the most vigorous activity you've had all day," writes author Mikkel Aaland. "The heat produces an artificial 'fever' and urges every organ of the body into action. While outwardly relaxed, your inner organs are as active as though you were jogging or mowing the lawn. At the same time, you are being cleansed from inside out by the skin, your body's largest organ and its excretion, sweat." "I wrote the guide for people with basic building skills who want to create the perfect bathing structure. I also wrote it for just about anyone who wants to deepen their understanding of what makes a perfect sauna or sweat bath," continues Aaland. Posted by: Mikkel Aaland © 2016 Mikkel Aaland.

About Mikkel Aaland
Mikkel Aaland > About Mikkel Aaland Home About Mikkel Aaland About Mikkel Aaland Mikkel Aaland Mikkel Aaland (born 1952) is an award-winning American photographer and is known for work in the early days of digital photography. His documentary photographs have been exhibited in major institutions around the world, including the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris and the former Lenin Museum in Prague. Aaland is the author of books featuring his own photojournalism as well as works on digital imaging and various Adobe Photoshop products. Biography Early years Aaland was born in San Francisco and grew up in nearby Livermore, California. His Norwegian born father worked as a scientist at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory research facility.[1] Aaland was an Eagle Scout who attended Livermore High School, where he played football. He graduated from California State University in Chico with a major in photojournalism and was an All-American swimmer on the NCAA Division II championship team. Beginning career In 1978 Aaland published his first book, Sweat: The Illustrated History and Description of the Finnish Sauna, Russian Bania, Islamic Hammam, Japanese Mushi-buro, Mexican Temescal, and American Indian & Eskimo Sweat Lodge. The book was the culmination of a three-year travel and photo-journalistic tour of the world's various bathing customs. Currently the book is being developed into a PBS television documentary by Moga / Jacobsen Productions.[2] Aaland published his second nonfiction book, County Fair: Portraits (1981) after spending nine years traveling the United States visiting county fairs. Aaland is a latter day Mike Disfarmer. In 1982 Aaland appeared as a guest on the David Letterman Show, sharing work from both Sweat and County Fair.[3] During an interview in 1981 Aaland was introduced to the newly emerging field of digital photography by renowned photographer Ansel Adams. Aaland soon became the West Coast editor of the Swedish FOTO magazine. He contributed articles and photos for other publications such as American Photographer, American Photo, Digital Creativity, Newsweek, The Washington Post, Popular Science, and Wired. In 1981 he received the National Art Directors award for photography. Digital photography work One of the first to write about digital photography, Aaland released the book Digital Photography (1992). The book gives instruction and tips on using digital cameras to take unique photographs. He followed that with Still Images in Multimedia (1996) and then Shooting Digital: Pro Tips for Taking Great Pictures with Your Digital Camera (2003), which was named by Designer's Bookshelf as "Best Digital Photography Book of the Year for 2004." Aaland eventually joined academia, lecturing about photography at Stanford University, Drexel University, and UC Berkeley. He also spoke at computer graphics conferences around the country. In a diversion from photography instruction, Aaland published The Sword of Heaven: A Five Continent Odyssey to Save the World (1999). The book describes six years he spent traveling around the world documenting a peace project initiated by survivors of Hiroshima and lead by a Shinto priest. Beginning in 2001, Aaland began publishing a number of guidebooks about using the computer design program Photoshop to enhance digital photography; Photoshop Elements Solutions: The Art of Digital Photography was followed by second, third, and fourth volumes. He also acted as an unpaid adviser to the development of both the alpha, beta, and final versions of the Adobe Photoshop Elements application. Photoshop CS2 RAW: Using Adobe Camera Raw, Bridge, and Photoshop to Get the Most Out of Your Digital Camera (2006) was Aaland's first of two books explaining the graphic file format RAW, which is used by professional photographers. While working as an adviser on the photo editing software for Adobe Systems Lightroom's beta tests, Aaland proposed a real-world test of the software by inviting professional photographers to travel to a far-off land where they would use Lightroom. The result of this was Photoshop Lightroom Adventure: Mastering Adobe's Next-generation Tool for Digital Photographers (2007). Aaland followed up that book the same year with Photoshop Lightroom 2 Adventure: Mastering Adobe's Next-generation Tool for Digital Photographers, which brought professionals to Tasmania to show users how photographers work with the Lightroom 2 software. Aaland's most recent book Photoshop CS3 RAW: Transform Your RAW Images into Works of Art (2008) explains and simplifies working with the RAW format of digital photographs.
