A dry sauna will perfectly enhance the blood system in your body and relax your body. It can be used to treat respiratory or skin diseases. The positive effect of the Finnish sauna consists in the activation of thermoregulatory processes in the body, as a result of which the blood moves to the dilated blood vessels and you experience an intense sweating. The body gets rid of unnecessary toxins and your skin also becomes more radiant, relaxed and healthier. An integral part of the sauna is the cooling phase, which helps your immune system.
The basis of the Finnish sauna is the alternation of heat and cold, which improves the metabolism, blood circulation, elasticity of blood vessels and increases immunity.
Learn how to use the sauna. We have prepared a few simple rules for you, to use the sauna effectively and benefit your health. Pamper your body and soul.
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 covering intimate parts of your body. 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 enter the sauna barefoot.
The balneo sheet has an important hygienic function and prevents the spread of various skin and other 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, then deepening the breath. Sit quietly, relax your whole body and enjoy the benefits of the sauna. We recommend lying down, because 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.
If you like more humidity in the sauna, pour a little water on the stones. Do not exceed the air humidity of 30 % and do not pour a lot of water, which could damage the oven. Under any circumstances, do not touch the sauna furnace or the stones.
Do not immediately cool your body with cold water, but let it cool down naturally for a while. Before entering the cooling pool (and always after leaving the sauna), please shower first to wash away all sweat. While showering, start with lukewarm water from the feet towards the heart. Cooling down after the sauna returns your body temperature back to normal values, which exercises the blood vessels and the entire blood circulation and strengthens the immunity. You may cool down in the shower, in the cooling pool, or use a bucket or ice. After cooling down, dry off and relax in the relaxation room.
Allow yourself to 10 to 15 minutes of rest after each sauna. Skipping the rest may excessively exhaust and overload the body.
Recommended time spent in the sauna is subjective to the individual. Listen to your body so it feels relaxing. If the heat is uncomfortable and you feel uneasy, it is better to leave the sauna. The recommended time in the Finnish sauna is 10 to 15 minutes.Try to repeat the process of staying in the sauna, cooling down and resting for 3 times. After the Finnish sauna and the cooling process, take a shower with lukewarm water without soap, dry off and relax in the relaxation room.
