Sauna Steam Power The Guide To
Relaxation And
Building Saunas

by Sylita Thomas

If you're serious about relaxation and rejuvenation, then

consider the many benefits and advantages of a Sauna. While a

hot sauna may seem a cruel punishment to inexperienced bathers,

it is actually a very pleasant experience. The Sauna and Steam

Bath Guide details the process of steam sauna usage and how you

can benefit using more modern but natural methodology.

There is no one right way to take a sauna. Above all, you

should be in good company, so that you can enjoy the experience

in peace. Beginning users should use the sauna judiciously to

start. As long as you feel comfortable, you may stay in the

sauna, or repeat a hot-cold cycle as often as you wish. Avoid

using a sauna if you have a fever or an inflammatory disease or

injury, if you are pregnant, or if you have been drinking. You

may want to consult your physician if you have a disease, such

as heart disease, high blood pressure, asthma or skin disease.

Though it's interesting to know that sauna usage doesn't seem

to harm billion plus people all across the globe.

To get the most of the sauna, you will need; At least half an

hour of time, preferably more, so you have ample time to relax,

a large towel to dry yourself, a smaller towel to sit on, a

bathrobe to wear while cooling down.

Enjoying a sauna is a personal thing; you should always listen

to your body and do as you feel best. You should not remain

inside longer than 30 minutes at a time. If there is a pounding

or feeling of faintness, the person must leave the heated room

and sit quietly. Drinking water with electrolytes would prove

helpful also as well as fresh fruit juice.

After cooling down for a few minutes, go into the sauna again

and stay a bit longer. When you feel like having another break,

feel free to do so.

Finally shower to clean yourself from the sweat. Avoid using

soap as soap leaves a film and clogs the pores. Wash off the

sweat with a skin brush or loofa. Brush all over, even face and

hair. Painful at first, it soon feels wonderful. Brushing

enhances the cleansing effect. Shampoo and conditioner contain

chemicals toxic to the body so use only if needed.

Allow yourself to cool and dry properly before clothing

yourself. This allows time to eliminate dead cells and other


Follow the sauna with a peaceful rest and a drink. Drink

mineralized water before and after the sauna. Make sure the

bowels move regularly, as sauna therapy will increase


As you become healthier, you will sweat more easily. Also, to

heat up the sauna will take longer. The body dissipates heat

more efficiently and fewer cellular toxins are there to be

removed. Results are much better when saunas are part of an

integrated program. The latest resource is an ebook guide

called "The Sauna and Steam Bath Guide", by Sylita Thomas.

The basic goal is to enjoy and relax, and sweat. It's a simple,

uncomplicated pleasure, to which nobody is exempt from access.

So never mind the mysticism: just remember you've only one duty

in the sauna and that's to enjoy it.
