How to use a Sauna with Rocks

Pour water on the rocks

Once the rocks are heated, you can begin using the sauna. To get the most out of your sauna experience, it is important to pour water on the rocks. This creates steam, which helps to increase the humidity in the sauna and makes it easier to sweat. To do this, simply pour water on the rocks using a ladle or bucket. Be careful not to pour too much water at once, as this can create a lot of steam and make it difficult to breathe.

Relax in the sauna

Now that the sauna is heated and you have poured water on the rocks, it's time to relax. Sit or lie down on the benches and let the heat and steam envelop you. Breathe deeply and allow yourself to sweat. You can stay in the sauna for as long as you feel comfortable, but most people find that 10-20 minutes is enough.

Cool down

    After you have finished using the sauna, it is important to cool down. This helps to regulate your body temperature and prevent overheating. You can cool down by stepping outside, taking a cold shower, or jumping into a cold pool. Some people also like to roll in the snow or take a dip in an icy lake!

    Tips for using a sauna with rocks

    • Drink plenty of water before, during, and after using the sauna. This helps to prevent dehydration and replenish fluids lost through sweating.
    • Avoid alcohol and drugs before using the sauna, as these can impair your judgment and increase your risk of overheating or dehydration.
    • Do not use the sauna if you have a medical condition that makes you sensitive to heat or if you are pregnant.
    • Do not pour too much water on the rocks at once, as this can create a lot of steam and make it difficult to breathe.
    • Do not throw anything on the rocks other than water. This can create a fire hazard and damage the rocks.
    • Do not touch the rocks with your bare hands, as they can be very hot and cause burns. Use a ladle or bucket to pour water on the rocks.


    Using a sauna with rocks can be a great way to relax, cleanse your body, and promote overall health and wellbeing.
