After a stressful business day, you can relax in our sauna and wellness area (sauna, steam bath, whirlpool) relax and be pampered with a full body relaxation massage, back or foot massage.
The sauna is especially used against colds and can also be used as a therapeutic application in some diseases, such as disorders of the autonomic nervous system.
The sequence of heat with the subsequent cold bath relaxes the muscles and brings some physiological effects, such as lowering blood pressure, stimulate circulation, metabolism, immune system and respiratory especially a beneficial effect on subjective well-being.
A recommended use of the sauna bath is:
- about 8-15 minutes sweating
- about 15 minutes cool down
- about 15 minutes rest
Saunas can be dangerous due to the risk of heat prostration or the even more serious hyperthermia. Children and older persons who have heart disease or seizure disorders or those who use alcohol or cocaine are especially vulnerable.
Prolonged stay in a sauna may lead to the loss of electrolytes from the body, the same as after rigorous exercise. Risks of dehydration leading to heat stroke in more sensitive individuals can occur and may be reduced by regular sipping of water or isotonic drinks, but not alcohol, during the sauna. Sauna bathing and heavy drinking of alcoholic beverages, and also sauna bathing during alcohol withdrawal (hangover) phase can undoubtedly create real health risks.
