Using a spa pool or a sauna is a beneficial way to relax the muscles, revitalize the skin, improve blood circulation, and ease mental stress. However, due to the extreme heat produced by these facilities, and due to the fact that most spas and saunas are public facilities, all users should take some important safety measures before stepping inside.
1. Our spa pool and sauna is co-ed and located in our secret courtyard so we will require you to wear a bathing suit. We offer exclusive use of the facilities, and all efforts for privacy are strived for, but please bare in mind this is an outdoor setting. We are an eco friendly day spa, so as part of protecting the environment we request you bring a towel, robe or cover up, and wear sandals into the area. As a condition of the spa pool service, you are required to exfoliate your body and use the experience shower prior to entering the pool. For use of our infrared-sauna please remove shoes before entering, place a black towel on the seat and on the floor to shield any bare skin from the hot seating area and also protect to woodwork from the sweat produced. Read all signs posted outside the facility before you robe or disrobe.
2. The spa pool is set at 38 degrees and the infrared sauna is 55 degrees. the heat can cause the body to perspire, often in great amounts. Drink plenty of water before entering in order to combat dehydration. Also shower to remove any lotions or cleansers that are apt to melt or drip off into the facility. Please check your body for any metal (jewelry and zippers, for example) in order to prevent it from burning your body when it quickly heats up in the facility.
3. Don’t remain in the spa pool or infrared sauna room beyond your own capacity to tolerate the heat. If you begin to feel faint, nauseated, or your heart rate begins to speed, you should exit the sauna or steam room immediately. Generally, to begin with, 8 to 10 minutes in the facility should be enough to cause your body temperature to rise and produce sweat without causing negative physical effects such as dizziness..
Take a break and cool off for a little while, and if you feel comfortable returning to the facility, spend another 5 to 10 minutes in there. While in the spa pool or infrared sauna, don’t mess with any of the controls by adjusting the temperature dials. Speak to a team member if the temperature in the facility doesn’t seem right.
4. We have set up appointments so that if using both the services, you will start with the exfoliation and shower before entering the spa pool to keep the pool free from lotions/deodorants/moisturisers, and from the spa pool you move onto the infrared sauna. Allow your body to adjust to cooler air temperatures before and after the sauna. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to hydrate your body.
5. Know when not to use facilities. If you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant, abstain from using a spa pool or infrared sauna. Raising your body’s temperature to that extreme can harm the fetus. Additionally, stay out of the facilities if you have been drinking alcohol or taking illicit drugs. You should also avoid using a spa pool or sauna if you are under age 16, if you suffer from circulatory problems, heart disease, high or low blood pressure, diabetes, epilepsy, or any other condition that may affect your body’s reaction to high temperatures. Consult a doctor if you believe you may have one of these conditions.
