You will sweat a lot, drink plenty of water before, during, and after sauna.
Clean off before entering the sauna and once again after you are done.
Enter the sauna with only a towel, no clothing or jewelry, leave sandles by the door before entering.
Let your body warm-up, stay as long as you are comfortable for each session. Average 10-15 minutes per session.
Pour water on the rocks to create steam and heat, don’t pour too much, half a ladle is usually just right. Repeat and adjust to your heat tolerance. Embrace the heat, relax, and enjoy.
Take a break, sit outside, take a cool shower, or roll in the snow. Drink water and allow your body to get cool before returning to sauna. Average 5-15 minutes.
Repeat the process of heating up and cooling down for 3-5 sessions.
STEP WITH CARE
There are 3 bench levels in the sauna making for rather large steps going up and down. Please use the handrails when entering and leaving.
Keep the sauna door closed. Don’t hold it open. Don’t let the heat out.
There is an Echo speaker in each room, simply say “Alexa... shuffle Terry's Sauna Music” or your favorite music of choice. To stop say “Alexa... off”. You can also call the house by saying “Alexa... call the kitchen”. Device names: Kuuma (sauna room), Shower, Elk Room, or Sisu (group for all 3).
After you are done with sauna and showered off it is good to eat fresh food and drink water to refuel your body.
There is a toilet available on the bottom floor inside the house.
In the sauna there is no farting, smoking, spitting, hanky panky, sleeping, phones, cameras, bottles, or glasses. Do NOT touch the stove, it is very hot!
Use of the sauna is at your own risk. If you are pregnant or have health conditions, please consult your physician before use.
A sauna is a very simple thing. The simpler it is, the more you are likely to enjoy it and the better it will be for you.
