With perfect dimensions to accommodate 2-4 people the sauna also has two large horizontal windows that allows peaceful forest views. Guests will have exclusive use of the sauna for an hour session at a time of their choosing between 11 am and 8 pm. The fee of $40 includes towels, robes and eucalyptus.
How it Works
Drink a glass of water before entering the dry sauna. With dry temperatures soaring up to 185-degrees Fahrenheit, your body will need the extra moisture. Bring a bottle of water with you into the sauna in case you get parched.
Enter the sauna clean. You can choose to wear swimwear or enter the sauna nude.
Bring your towels into the sauna, and remember to close the door behind you.
Place a clean towel on a bench. You can either sit on the towel or lie down across the bench to completely relax.
Take deep, slow breaths, and enjoy the sauna for between 15 and 20 minutes. Remember to drink water if you feel parched, and avoid staying in the sauna for too long and overheating your tissues.
Leave the sauna, and rinse off in the bath in lukewarm water to remove excess sweat and to gently cool your body down by degrees.Or for those who are adventurous roll in the snow!
Drink a glass or two of water after you leave the sauna to rehydrate your body.
Always keep towels and water handy. If your feet are sensitive to heat, wear a pair of sandals to protect them.
