    Yes that relaxation is somehow much deeper felt in your body than bath, shower or other can give of my experience. It takes time to get use to the heat (and stand it). But the benefits are real for example for the stiff muscles.

    I love steam sauna, helps me with my Asthma, aches, skin conditions.....I start by taking a cold shower and then I enter the steam room, I also take a desired essential oil for aroma therapy, occasionally take breaks for more cold showers and I drink a lot of water. You should give it a try.
    Dry sauna are whatever for my taste.

    Sure, brooms are typically made of birch here, but I've noticed that both Balts and Russians like other type of brooms as well, such as those made of oak. I bought some of those a couple of weeks ago in Vyborg, I have BTW introduced also Russian sauna caps i.e shapka's to my family, with some success.

    A good sauna is not too hot, something like 66 celsius is optimal and the air has to be very humid. A sea, lake or river view is desirable. A hot, dry sauna at some hotel is a creature of the evil.

    I love a sauna after a big workout but not too hot and i skip the cold showers, if no one else is in there i do some stretching, feel relaxed and refreshed after a warm shower.

    Yeah, oak is also good, if you let it wet in hot water it will give away a nice smell. Caps are also usefull, especially for people with weaker cardio system.
