Dry sauna

The Finnish dry sauna has a wooden structure and the heat is emitted by a stove containing volcanic stones, reaching high temperatures up to 100 degrees Celsius, and the humidity is maintained between 5% and 20%. When using the sauna you can control the humidity and temperature by pouring water over the hot stones. The procedure causes the body to sweat abundantly, a process that allows the elimination of toxins and cleanses the skin in depth.

How to use the sauna properly?

The first step is the shower for hygiene reasons and drying the body with the towel to allow the body to warm up properly. In the dry sauna the heat rises as you go higher. After 8 minutes the body becomes comfortable with the heat and since then it begins to really eliminate the toxins and enjoy the properties of this procedure. The recommended time for beginners is 10-15 minutes and no more. After completing the program it is good to opt for a cold shower that stimulates blood circulation and contributes to the beauty of the skin, at Ana Wellness & SPA we provide Frigidarium dedicated to this step. It is important to consume fluids after a sauna session in order to maintain a balance in the body.
