Every week I attend Sauna which is a facility built alongside a family leisure pool (with flumes, erupting volcano, things like that) The facility is attended by Russian, German and French students, many find the compulsory wearing of the cossie being at odds with their sauna culture back home. For a typical session, I first open my pores in the circular steam room. There are two levels of seating here, I always go upstairs to the upper tier. Using a waterproof stopwatch, I spend 3x15 minutes sittings, separated by a plunge in the cold pool. Then I relax in the dry sauna, normally for 6x15 minute sittings, but I may add another sitting if I wish. Since I have been visiting the sauna since 1976, I have gradually acclimatized to this schedule. I would not reccommend any beginner or inexperienced to try the same. These facilities are not to be confused with the gay bath-house, something which is quite different.
