A Special Note
Before purchasing or using a sauna, please consult with your physician.
While most people are just fine in a sauna, there are some who shouldn’t use one. For example, if you can’t stand the heat or you are claustrophobic, a sauna most likely isn’t for you. In addition, if you’ve recently had a heart attack or a stroke, have heart disease, are pregnant, are a child, or have heart failure, you don’t want to soak in a sauna.
In addition, if you have high blood pressure or any other disease, please contact your doctor.
