The sauna is an ancient treatment developed by civilisations living in cold climates. Because of the cold climate, their bodies tend not to sweat much, so these cold climate dwellers invented the sauna to promote improved circulation of body fluids, speed up metabolism and accelerate sweating: a great natural purification and detoxification function of the body.
It is best to experience a sauna in short 10-15 minute sessions, with 5-10 minute “cooling down” intervals, repeating such a cycle 3-4 times. During the “cooling down” intervals do not use pool or showers which have chlorinated water. Ozone treated water, clean river, rain, lake or sea water is OK. Your skin has been cleansed by the flow of the sweat and in such a clean state it will absorb the chlorine from the water into your body. It is best to use a towel to dry the sweat from your body. Do not allow the sweat to evaporate, because it contains toxins your body has just excreted, and you do not want any of them to be reabsorbed back.
