  2. Before entering the sauna one should take off all metal items (necklaces, earrings)

  3. Before bathing, one should wash entire body in the shower with soap and warm water and then wipe oneself dry.

  4. One can sit and lie on the benches only after putting a towel under the body so that the sweat does not soak into the benches.

  5. One bathing cycle lasts about 25 minutes: 8-12 minutes of staying in hot room, then 8-12 minutes of gradual cooling off using water. In the second and third cycle, time of staying in the hot room should not last longer than 10 minutes.
