Stimulating the skin is a sauna practice that goes back 1000s of years. The Finnish use a device called "Vihta" - a Finnish term for a sauna whisk. This whisk was traditionally made from Birch branches. The Vihta is used as a fan to move the air within the sauna. Sauna bathers also use the Vihta to lightly 'whip' ones skin surface. This forces the heat further into the body and also stimulates the skin surface increasing blood flow.
