Who is not allowed to use a sauna?
You are not allowed to use the sauna if you have a fever, suffer from an infectious disease, a bacterial inflammation, if you are recovering after a surgery, if you suffer from inflammation of muscles, joints or from pneumonia.
People with severe high blood pressure and circulatory problems, or who suffer from kidney and heart diseases.
To those who have never had a sauna before the age of 60, we recommend starting it only after a preliminary medical examination!
The sauna is not recommended for pregnant women! Unlike us, the fetus cannot give off heat and there is a risk of miscarriage or premature birth.
Breastfeeding mothers are free to have a sauna. The recommended length of stay is 5 – 8 minutes.
We do not recommend the sauna for children under 4 years of age! Children over 4 can try the infrared and the bio sauna at a third and a half of the time recommended for adults, but the child’s signs should always be given priority.
Children over the age of 12 can try the finnish sauna, too. The recommended length of stay is between 5 – 8 minutes, away from the heating stove and on the bottom raw of the benches. This however, depends on the child’s physical development. Their hearts cannot support pressure as well as an adult’sheart and also, they reach the degree of efficiency sooner than adults!
Never take a sauna on an empty stomach, or, conversely, if you are very full! To avoid nausea. Having a sauna with a full stomach can cause dizziness, nausea and even vomiting. If you have a sauna on an empty stomach, both your blood pressure and blood sugar may drop and you may feel dizzy or even faint. You should consider eating 1 – 2 hours before or after a sauna.
What to consider when consuming fluids?
Drink plenty of fluids before entering the sauna! This way, detoxification also happens from a deeper level and more effectively. We do not recommend excessive fluid intake during the sauna sessions; you should wait one hour after the sauna to drink fluids (due to blood thinning).
After you use the sauna, we recommend consuming 100% fruit juice, to supplement the level of potassium in your body.
