Frequently Asked Questions

How do saunas improve your health?

According to studies, saunas can improve your health in a number of ways. They can help to relieve stress, improve circulation, reduce pain, and even burn calories. This occurs because when sitting in a sauna, your heart rate increases, and your body temperature rises. This causes your blood vessels to dilate and your body to sweat.

How much time can I safely spend in a sauna?

It's recommended that you spend no more than 15 minutes at a time in a sauna. This is because extended periods in high temperatures can be dangerous. Your body can overheat, which can lead to dehydration, heat exhaustion, or even heat stroke.

Should I be clothed in a sauna?

Most saunas are experienced nude, as the heat is more evenly distributed without clothing. However, some people feel more comfortable wearing a bathing suit or other clothing in the sauna. You should wear whatever makes you most comfortable, but remain conscious of the fact that clothing will absorb some of the heat.

How do I install my sauna?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the installation process for a sauna will vary depending on the type and model of sauna you purchase. However, most saunas will come with detailed instructions on how to install the unit, and it is typically a relatively easy process. In general, you will need to find a suitable location for your sauna, level the ground, and then assemble the sauna according to the instructions. Once the sauna is assembled, you will need to connect it to a power source and then fill it with water.

Can I use the sauna if I’m sick?

It is not recommended to use the sauna if you are sick, as the heat can make your symptoms worse. It may also be difficult to breathe in the sauna if you have a cold or respiratory infection.
