The Richmond Sauna

A sauna is a small room or house designed as a place to experience dry or wet heat sessions. And the Richmond Sauna is not your average sauna experience.

In a world enveloped by body imagery, there’s something special about a place where everyone feels accepted and celebrated no matter what their appearance. The Richmond Sauna is such a place, a rustic retreat, free of judgment and saturated with the warmth of the friendly patrons.
