The sauna experience: Questions & Answers

0

What is the best temperature for a sauna?

The appropriate temperature for a sauna depends on your preference. Most people prefer to enjoy their sauna at temperatures between 150-175 degrees Fahrenheit for traditional saunas and 120-130 degrees Fahrenheit for infrared saunas.

How long should I stay inside a sauna?

While this, too, varies between individuals — you can usually stay in the sauna until you begin to feel uncomfortable. Typically, remain in the sauna for about 10-15 minutes and then take a break to cool off for several minutes. Then you can feel free to return to the sauna for another “inning.” A Finnleo sauna experience can be truly relaxing and rewarding, but don’t stay in the sauna for extended periods of time. Set the temperature and humidity level (if you are using a traditional sauna) to your ideal level. If you begin to feel dizzy or uncomfortable, simply leave the sauna and cool off.

What should I do after sauna heat bathing?

After your sauna, cleanse your skin via shower or bath to remove any and all residues or salts left behind. A quick rinse will close your pores once again and is the perfect way to end your sauna experience. It is recommended that you moisturize your skin with a high quality moisturizing lotion. It’s also ideal to shampoo your hair afterward. Don’t forget to drink an adequate amount of water, mineral water, fruit or vegetable juice to replace fluids that were lost during your heat bathing.

Is it okay to pour water on the rocks of traditional heaters?

Pouring water on the rocks of Finnleo traditional sauna heaters is perfectly fine and is an essential aspect of the overall experience. For infrared saunas, however, the humidity will be ambient.

Are there any health problems that I should be concerned about?

Be sure to consult your personal physician if you have any history of heart problems, high blood pressure, or any other health problems before enjoying any kind of sauna.

What are some of the most notable benefits of using a sauna?

Relaxation is by far the most cited benefit from regular sauna bathers, followed closely by the positive effects seen from detoxification.
