Its healing effect is undisputed: Regular sauna visits result in a thorough care and cleansing of the body, they have a relaxing effect and promote health. The general immune system is strengthened and thus the risk of infectious diseases such as colds is considerably reduced.

- If necessary, take a warm foot bath beforehand. This also promotes the body's ability to sweat.
- First sauna session. (duration: 8 - 15 minutes). For more moisture in the cabin, pour some water over the hot sauna stones. Such infusions have a beneficial effect on the respiratory tract.
- Leave the sauna and move to a ventilated environment. Take a cold shower or immerse yourself in cold water. If you wish, you can bathe your feet again.
- Relax completely for a few minutes. Drink mineral water or a fruit juice mix to compensate for the loss of water.
- Take the second sauna bath and repeat steps "5" and "6".
- Afterwards, remain in complete silence for any length of time and drink as much as you like. If you still have time, lie down in the sun or go to the solarium.
