Sweat in the right way.

Even while relaxing in the sauna area of the family thermal baths certain rules apply.

Those who regularly go to the sauna, strengthen their immune system, especially in the cold season. The body's defences are strengthened, the skin is cleansed and much more.

A brief overview of the positive effects of a sauna session:

  • Strengthening of the body's defences (immune system)
  • Resilience against colds
  • Strengthening of the cardiovascular system
  • Normalisation of blood pressure
  • Training for the blood vessels
  • Cleansing of the skin, slows down ageing of the skin
  • Relaxation and rejuvenation of body and mind
  • Stress factors can be better processed
  • Promotion of muscle regeneration e.g. after sport

In order to enjoy your sweat properly, you should prepare yourself a little. Apart from the necessary items, such as bath towel, hand towels, non-slip slippers, bathrobe and body wash, there are a few basic rules that must be followed. Then there is nothing more standing in the way of a relaxing sauna experience:

  • Never go into a sauna following a heavy meal! A sweat bath on an empty stomach is also not recommended. There is a risk of you collapsing! It is best to eat one or two hours before to ensure that the blood sugar levels do not get too low.
  • It is not recommended to take a sauna directly after doing sport. The pulse should have absolutely returned to normal.
  • The sauna is not intended for warming up. Those who feel really cold are not permitted in the sauna. You must first acclimatise by having a warm shower or possibly having a hot drink. If you are still feeling cold, warm footbaths often help.
  • Going straight into the sauna while still exhausted from everyday stress is not advisable. Plan a break of 15-30 minutes before the first sauna session.
  • Plan breaks of at least 15 minutes between sauna sessions.
  • After each sauna session take a cold shower and move around for 2-3 minutes to get the circulation going.
  • Three sauna sessions of between 8 and 15 minutes are ideal for one visit to the sauna.
  • Drink a lot (water, juice) in the breaks.
