Wearing swimwear in a sauna is not advisable for health reasons and can even lead to skin problems. Swimwear seals the body’s pores and heat sensors. When you start sweating in the sauna, the underlying skin can get clogged with dirt accumulated in the pores and become infected. That can lead to Miliaria Rubra, sweat rash caused by clogged pores.

With this in mind, we advise you not to wear swimwear to the wellness centre. However, we understand not everyone feels comfortable with this for a variety of reasons. That is why we have a special swimwear day every first Tuesday of the month.

Pregnancy
Saunas are an excellent way to relax, also during pregnancy. A visit to the sauna helps drain excess fluids and a dip in the pool or salt-water bath relieves painful pelvic muscles. If you are pregnant and you have never been to a sauna before, we do not recommend you visit a sauna while pregnant because your body is not used to the high temperatures and temperature fluctuations.

If you are pregnant and you have been to a sauna before, bear in mind the following:
–  In the first trimester, avoid going to the sauna, even if you were used to it before pregnancy. The foetus is still developing and high temperatures may be harmful at this stage.
– Do not stay in the sauna for longer than 10 minutes at a time.
– Sit on the lowest bench, closest to the exit. This will allow you to easily leave if you start feeling too hot.
– Avoid saunas with excessively high temperatures (90-95 °C).
– Cool down slowly and properly.
– Take a longer break than usual, because in pregnancy, your body struggles even more with major temperature fluctuations.
– The infrared sauna is not recommended due to the infrared rays, which may be harmful in pregnancy.
– Sun beds are not recommended, because they increase the risk of melasma (pregnancy mask), a type of hyperpigmentation of the face resulting from exposure to UV rays and pregnancy hormones.
During the last six weeks of pregnancy we recommend you do not use seated, lie-down or floating baths, such as whirlpools, hot tubs and herbal baths. Since you may already be dilated, you have a higher risk of infection. Swimming, on the other hand, is not a problem.

Pumping
We do not have special pumping rooms for nursing mothers. Kindly let our reception staff know in advance when you need to pump, so that they can find you a suitable room.
