Finnish sauna 1st phase - warming up
Sauna is an individual pleasure, and therefore each of you must try and find the most suitable way. Above all, the time spent in the spa is individual. The length of stay in the sauna is quite different, usually about 10 minutes. A reliable indicator of the end of your stay in the sauna is the onset of heavy sweating.

After a stay in the heating room, a rapid cooling follows. Even the speed of cooling is an individual matter - e.g. transition to cold air, cold shower, cooling pool.
The process - heating and cooling - is repeated two to three times
A large number of repetitions is not recommended during regeneration. We increase the effect of heat in the sauna by brushing.
The whole sauna procedure should be completed with a stay of at least 30 minutes in the rest room. The sauna is part of the regeneration procedure, so it is important to replenish fluids (non-alcoholic). Massage after the sauna on a warmed body is very effective and pleasant.
