How do we call in English the traditional(finnish I guess) shower after sauna? It is a wooden bucket with full of ice cold water, helps you refreshing.I have found an expression: "shocking shower", but wanted to make sure that I use the correct expression.
Thanks in advance.
In a spa I went to once, you had an "ice water shower" after the sauna. It wasn't really a shower. It was a large bucket of very cold water, suspended from the ceiling of a small cubicle and I had to pull a rope to tip the water over my own head!
Some places have a small pool (about the size of a jacuzzi) filled with icy-cold water outside the sauna and steam room. You are supposed to jump in it and stay there just for a couple of seconds. It's called a "plunge pool".
