  • Listen to your body, you may need to start with shorter sessions (around 20mins), and gradually increase the lengh and frequency as your body acclimitises over time.
  • Drink water before, during and after your session, to prevent dehydration and ensure you replenish all lost fluids.
  • Avoid actions thats will reduce perspiraion before your session. This includes, drinking caffine or alcohol, as well as applying body oils and lotions that can clog your pores and some anti-perspirants.
  • If possible take a quick shower before your sauna session to wash away and residue on your skin. Also take a shower as soon as you get home after to wash away purged toxins.
  • If you feel discomfort or dizziness, step out of the the saina immidiately and ak for assistance.
  • Immidiately after you complete your sauna session movements such a jumping up and down will help to circulate the lymphatic system thus move and remove more toxins from the body.
