Complete guide for usage of Sauna

Sauna produces dry heat. It is a heated room with wooden walls for insulation, ventilation, absorption of moisture, and different levels of benches. Heat is provided by a stove, where the guests can make steam by pouring water on hot coals that moisten the sauna air which makes it feel hotter. The highest bench is the hottest so guests should be advised to start on the lower bench to get accustomed to the feeling.  Sweating begins after 8mins, which is known as the hot phase, which should be followed by a cold phase i.e. cold shower/plunge pool. This cycle can be repeated several times for maximum benefit.  Finish by relaxing for 30mins.
