How to use the Sauna
The sauna process is a repeated cycle of HEATING, COOLING OFF, and a period of REST.
On the first round of this cycle, stay until you break a sweat (about 10 minutes). On subsequent rounds, stay for as long as 20 minutes.
It’s essential to cool off after each round. You can use a cool or cold shower. Traditionally, a cold plunge pool or a roll in the snow would do. Allegedly, the quicker and more extreme the temperature change, the stronger the cardiovascular and the immune systems become. Build up to it very gradually.
Wait before going in for the next round for at least 5 minutes. Drink water; breathe slowly.
You can do as many rounds as you like. Most sauna goers do three or four rounds (1-2 hours).
