Frequently Asked Questions:
How long should I sit in the sauna for?
If you’re new to the sauna, try spending 5 to 10 minutes relaxing and see how you feel for the rest of the day. As you get used to the heat, you can slowly increase the time you spend to 20-30 minutes but make sure to stay hydrated and don’t spend any longer in the sauna than feels comfortable.
Are there any risks to using the sauna?
If you’re ill or recovering from an illness, it’s best to leave the sauna until you are fully recovered. You should also skip the sauna if you’re pregnant, have low blood pressure, or certain medical conditions so make sure to ask a doctor if you’re unsure.
