Sauna Safety Tips

Sauna Safety Tips READ THE INSTRUCTIONS Most saunas will carry their own health guidelines and warnings. It is important to familiarize yourself with these prior to using the sauna. If you don't see any instructions, ask the person in charge of caring for the sauna for more information. BE IN GOOD HE ALTH Saunas are generally safe for most users but some people need to take extra precautions, or perhaps not even use the sauna. If you feel ill at any time during the sauna – get out straight away. WEAR SUITABLE ATTIRE If you are not convinced of the cleanliness of the sauna, it is a good idea to wear flip flops, or similar items on your feet. Some sauna experiences are naked - apart from your own personal feelings about that, you might consider leaving some clothing on if you're concerned about the hygiene in a public sauna. AVOID OUTSTAYING YOUR WELCONME The appropriate amount of time to spend in the sauna is around 15-20 minutes at the most, and less if you feel too hot or uncomfortable. It is better to go in and out, taking cooling down breaks, than to roast in it for too long. STAY WELL HYDRATED It is possible to suffer from dehydration in a sauna. This can lead to heat stroke if you do not replenish with liquids. Water and isotonic drinks are suitable, but never consume alcohol before or during your use of a sauna. It is also advisable not to use a sauna if you have a hangover. TAKING NEDICATION? STAY AW AY Unless you have your doctor's go-ahead, err on the side of caution. Some medications can impair your sweating and cause you to overheat very quickly. Get your doctor's all clear first. COOL DOWN GRADUALLY Some people like to have a warm shower before getting dressed after a sauna. It's up to how comfortable you feel but it's not a good idea to go straight from the sauna into a shock of freezing cold air outdoors.
