Our tradtional Finnish Sauna (95 degrees Celsius) is well suited for our die hard Sauna fans. In this cabin you can find the first chilled tropical aquarium of the Netherlands.
When in the sauna users sit on a towel for hygiene, usualy a saunabath will take about 10-15 minutes.
Heating will be greatest closest to the stove. Heating from the air will be lower on the lower benches as the hot air rises. Lying on a bench is considered preferable as it gives more even temperature over the body.
Perspiration is a sign of autonomic responses trying to cool the body. Users are advised to leave the sauna if the heat becomes unbearable, or if they feel faint or ill. We advise to go outside and breath the fresh air.
Cooling down is a part of the sauna cycle and is as important as the heating. Among users it is considered good practice to take a few moments after exiting a sauna before entering a cold plunge, and to enter hte plunge pool by stepping into it gradually, rather than immediately immersing fully. A cool down session is started with a cold shower.
Therapeutic sauna has been shown to aid adaptation, reduce stress hormones, lower blood pressure and improve cardiovascular conditions.
