A normal and peaceful event of sauna bathing comprises of 3 or 4 turns, and takes for approximately ninety minutes. First, always take a shower in order to remove the greasy film on your skin, then dry yourself with a towel because water on the skin surface may hinder further sweating and evaporation. If the sauna has benches located at different levels, choose the most suitable for you. At the lower benches temperature is lower, while in the upper benches it is higher. After 10-15 minutes, take another shower, and step into the plunge pool. When your body is cooled, always take a few minutes’ break, and replace the lost fluids by drinking still water, pure fruit juice, or herbal or fruit tea. Never drink alcohol when sauna bathing!
