How hot is the sauna?
The sauna temperature can vary from 100° to 140°F. It is recommended that for the first session the temperature is set at 100°F. Remember that the heat is penetrating into your body, so higher temperatures are not necessarily more beneficial.
How long should I stay in the sauna?
It will take at least 10 minutes for your body to warm up. Depending on your own internal thermostat, from 15 to 30 minutes you will really begin to sweat. You want to allow yourself to begin sweating before you get out, but usually 30-35 minutes is adequate. The first time only 15-20 minutes is recommended.
What do I wear?
You will want to wear loose fitting clothing into the sauna. Just remember that you will likely be sweating, so you may want to bring a change of clothing. Towels and gowns will be provided but there is no shower facilities. If you are planning to go to an event afterwards you will want to allow time to return home and shower.
Is it safe for everyone?
The sauna is safe for most people. However, if you have a heart condition, are pregnant, have metal parts in your body, have medications that must be maintained in a tight range (e.g. cardiac or seizure meds) or have a an acute injury, you will want to check with your doctor first. Children under the age of 6 are not permitted in the sauna. Older children must be accompanied by an adult.
What can I take in the sauna?
There is a CD player in the sauna. So if you have CD’s you would like to bring, you are welcome to. You can also bring an iPod, iPhone or other portable device. Electronics are safe in the sauna. Please feel free to drink water in the sauna, but no sugary drinks or food are allowed. You may also bring a book or eReader if you would prefer to read.
Can more than one person use the sauna at the same time?
Our sauna is a two person sauna, so two people can go in at the same time. There is an extra $15 charge for the second person.
