A Recommended Sauna Procedure
NOTE: In some illustrations below the bathers are depicted sitting on bare wooden sauna platform. This is not recommended, but for hygienic reasons a cloth or similar should be used by each bather to sit on.
Reserve enough time, at least an hour and a half.
Leave your clothes in the dressing room. Also remember to take off your eye glasses because the heath of the Sauna can damage them. Take off your watch also even if it is waterproof - you are here to relax, not to measure the time. You should also have a clean set of clothes to wear after the sauna. Take something to sit on, e.g. a small towel, into the sauna.
Enter the hot room for the first round. The recommended temperature is 80 to 90°C (176-194°F), at most 100°C (212°F). At first the air may be dry. Increase humidity by throwing water onto the stones in the stove. Using the whisk is not recommended on the first round since the skin has not yet softened adequately.
