Regenerate pleasantly and gain new strength. Close your eyes and enjoy the combination of steam sauna and beneficial salt inhalation. A steam sauna is an excellent choice for people who prefer pleasant heat and higher air humidity. In terms of health, steam is recommended mainly for chronic flu and inflammation of the nasopharynx and vocal cords, but also for rheumatic diseases and various other problems of the musculoskeletal system. Inhaling salt vapors has exceptional antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects and is excellent as a prevention against colds.
We recommend taking a shower and washing your body thoroughly with soap to remove any traces of deodorant or perfume that could irritate you while in the sauna. Wipe your skin dry to sweat faster and better in the sauna.
Entry to any sauna is possible only in a balneo sheet and with the intimate parts of your body covered. Surely you already know that being in a sauna in a bathing suit is very harmful to health not only for yourself, but also for others in the sauna. Swimwear is made of synthetic man-made fibers, which are already released at 50 °C, and thus harmful substances enter the body not only through the respiratory tract, but also through the skin. In the same way, rubber crocs or flip flops are definitely not suitable footwear for the sauna. It is necessary to go barefoot.
In addition to covering, the balneo sheet also fulfills an important hygienic function and even prevents the spread of various skin and other unpleasant diseases. Therefore, after entering the sauna, place a balneo sheet or towel under each part of your body. Sit comfortably or lie down, but always on your sheet.
First, set an hourglass to estimate the time in the sauna. In the sauna, we recommend breathing slowly through the nose, at first shallow and later the breaths can be deepened. Before you sit down, rinse and cool the seat with water - the hose is located by the door. Sit quietly or lie down, relax your whole body and enjoy the beneficial effects of the sauna. However, we recommend lying down, because then the body overheats evenly and does not burden the organism by equalizing the temperature differences between the lower and upper parts of the body. If you prefer to lie down, before leaving the sauna, first sit down to let your blood circulation get used to it, and then stand up after a while. After the heating process is over, rinse the area you sat on again.
Before entering the cooling pool (and always after leaving the sauna), please shower first to wash away all sweat. In the case of taking a shower, start with lukewarm water from the feet towards the heart. A thorough cooling down after the sauna returns your body temperature back to normal values, which exercises the blood vessels and the entire blood circulation and achieves the beneficial effects of the sauna, such as strengthening immunity and willpower. Whether you cool down in the shower, in the cooling pool, or use a bucket or ice, it's up to you what is most comfortable for you. After cooling down, dry off and relax in the relaxation room.
Allow yourself the recommended 10 to 15 minutes of rest after each sauna. If you skip it unnecessarily, you excessively exhaust and overload the body. Relax!
It is very individual and emotional. Listen to your body so that it is pleasant and relaxing for you. If the heat is already uncomfortable for you and you feel uneasy, it is better to leave the sauna. The recommended time in the steam sauna is 5 to 15 minutes. For quality sauna use, try to repeat the process of staying in the sauna, cooling down and resting 3 times. After the last visit to the sauna and the cooling process, take a shower with lukewarm water without soap, dry off and relax in the relaxation room.
