SAUNA SAFTEY GUIDELINES

Children under the age of 13 must be supervised at all times.

Pregnant or possibly pregnant women should contact their physician prior to using the sauna. Excessive temperature has a high potential for causing fetal damage.

Hyperthermia Danger: the normal body temperature can't rise above 103° F. Symptoms of excessive hyperthermia include dizziness, lethargy, drowsiness, and fainting. 

The use of alcohol, drugs, or medications prior to or during the sauna session may lead to unconsciousness and/or other harmful physical injuries.

Persons with a medical history of heart disease, low or high blood pressure, circulatory system problems, or diabetes should consult a physician prior to using a sauna.

Do not nap or sleep in the sauna.

Do not touch the glass door hinges during the sauna use as they become very hot to the touch.

SAUNA TIPS FOR MAX EXPERIENCE

If you take a hot/warm shower before using the sauna, you may perspire more and experience more comfort.

Drink water prior to, during, and after your sauna session to replenish body fluids.

You can use two towels during your sauna session. Fold one of the towels several times and place it on the bench. This towel will absorb some of your perspiration while adding comfort as you sit on the bench. Use a second towel to wipe perspiration from your body from time to time. 

To help relieve sore and tense muscles, massage the affected areas during your sauna session.

The peaceful and relaxed state rendered by a sauna session may help you to sleep easier and deeper.

It's not advised to use the sauna immediately following strenuous exercise. Wait at least 30 minutes to allow the body to cool down completely first.

After the sauna session is over, it's not advised to jump into the shower immediately. Because your body was heated up during the sauna session, it will continue to perspire even after you exit the sauna room. After about two minutes when your body has completely cooled down, you can take a shower to rinse the perspiration off your body.

SAUNA HOUSE RULES

Always have a towel between your person and the sauna seats.

Wear any attire you would be comfortable wearing at a public pool.

 

Don’t wear shoes in the sauna.

 

Each sauna session should be 15 minutes MAX.

Don't overload the sauna rocks with water. Take it pour by pour.

Be mindful and courteous of others using the sauna. Three people max are allowed in the sauna at one time.

Pay attention to the instructions in the sauna and ask staff for any help if there is an issue.

 

Please do not attempt to fix anything yourself. Touching the equipment may cause electrocution or other harmful injuries.

If you are feeling faint, lethargic, drowsy or dizzy, immediately leave the sauna and ask anyone around you for help. Call 911 if necessary.
