During private sauna sessions guests have exclusive access to the six person sauna for two hours. Please give us at least 4 hours notice, 24hrs notice is ideal so we can plan. We prepare the wood for the sauna, fire the stove, and see to every other aspect including towels and simple soaps for the shower. Heat exposure is known to have many health benefits. The major benefit is detoxification, mostly of heavy metals and impurities we have accumulated and become lodged in our tissues. These toxins are released when you passive sweat by activating your parasympathetic nervous system. Passive sweating is when you begin to sweat but you are not moving. Your heart rate goes up due to the high temperatures and blood begins to pump faster heating the body from the inside and causing you to sweat. This is different from the sweat you produce when you are doing physical exercise, as there are different hormones being activated in these two different scenarios. Therapeutic heat and cold exposure has been shown to aid adaptation, reduce stress hormones, lower blood pressure and improve cardiovascular conditions. Other health benefits include increased metabolism, increased circulation, pain reduction, improved cardiovascular function, improved immune function, improved sleep, stress management and relaxation, over a long period of regular sauna and cold-exposure. Short-term benefits also include relaxation and improved sleep. We stay in the sauna for about 20 minutes or until we feel the need to cool down. Then we go right into the tub of cold water. The tub takes some getting used to, it can feel like quite a shock at first. We generally use the well water and do not add ice. If you decide to cold plunge, we believe that just getting in fully submerged as quick as possible is the best way and then to take some deep breaths. But if you do not make it in the first time try again the second, or third time. If you decide the plunge is not for you, no problem, just splash some cold water on yourself and put your feet in. You can also use the shower to rinse of with cold water. It is important to cool down. We like to repeat this process 3-4 times. Also, it is recommended to end after the cold exposure portion of the cycle. This is more important when the outside air is warm and your body might not cool down efficiently without intentional cooling with cold water.
