make you sweat
Before any sauna session make sure you are well hydrated for maximum benefit and detoxification. An hour before your sauna try to drink at least 250mls water.
- Hydrate with at least 250ml (one glass) of water to prepare your body for an increase in core body temperature and loss of fluids through sweating.
- Arrive at your appointment on time.
- Wear bathers, light clothing or nothing – it’s a private area for you to enjoy.
- Drink plenty of water throughout your session. Water will be provided, and you will have access to a fountain to refill your water bottle if you choose to bring it.
- After the 40 minute session, enjoy cooling down in the outdoor shower facilities to balance your body temperature, remove toxins and close pores.
- Leave the towels when you finish – we will collect them after your session.
- Drink at least 700mls of water after your sauna session.
- To have a lasting positive effect of your health, scientific research suggests 3-4 sauna sessions a week.
Whatever is most comfortable for you. This could be a bathing suit, shorts and a tank, or nothing at all. A towel will be provided for you to use in the sauna if you wish.
Research shows that regular sessions will have more benefit and a greater result on your health. We recommend that you enjoy the sauna as often as you like (but a minimum of 3-4 sessions is best)! It is a great complement to your exercise routine, and also perfect for a rest or recovery day. Find what works best for you and your body’s needs.
Do not use a sauna if you are pregnant, have serious inflammation, a fever, a communicable disease, haemophilia, or are intoxicated or dehydrated. You may also wish to consult with your doctor if you are on medication, are elderly, have cardiovascular or chronic conditions, are heat intolerant, or any issue that affects your body’s ability to sweat.
