There are many researched health benefits to using a sauna, but the most significant is the relaxation you feel after every session. Please explore the other health benefits on our Top 10 Benefits page.

Be sure to consult your personal physician if you have any history of heart problems, high blood pressure or any other health problems before enjoying any kind of sauna. The rule of thumb is to listen to your body; if you feel uncomfortable you should leave the sauna and cool off before re entering.

The simplest method of sauna maintenance is to keep a hand brush near the sauna door. The last person out dips the brush in the water bucket, and does a quick scrubbing on the benches, walls, backrests, etc. This 30-second ritual will keep your sauna looking great indefinitely. This will prevent the need to use anything stronger than clean water on the wood portions. Depending on how often you use your sauna, it may be beneficial to occasionally wet mop the floor using a liquid deodorizing cleaner.
