Laconium

KLAFS ABC of well-being

A laconium is a dry sweating room. As in a tepidarium, the heat radiates evenly from the stone walls, floors, seats and benches. However, the temperature is considerably higher than in a tepidarium, being held at around 60°. In a laconium, you slowly but surely begin to sweat most intensively. A laconium is a good alternative for anyone who finds a traditional sauna – where the temperature is generally 90°C or more – too hot. The level of humidity is between 15-20%.
