getting back in the sauna!
« on: October 16, 2009, 03:48:27 PM »
I miss my Sauna,  has anyone experience of when it is ok to get back into the sauna.   I am thinking it may be around the same time as getting a soaking in the bath or shower, but does the heat mean I should wait a little longer?

The Sauna I use maxes out at around 96 degrees and I usually do 2 x 15 minutes with adequate rest between each session.  Any feedback most appreciated/

I also love the sauna! I asked my doctor at about 5 weeks when I saw him. He made sure my incision site was okay and then said fine. The sauna at the gym I go to is much hotter. I can only stay in about 5-10 minutes. I think if you are drinking a lot water and listen to when your body says enough, why not? Enjoy!
