Special Groups

The Elderly: As the body becomes older it is less effective at dealing with the stresses placed on it. Elderly people should not engage in unnecessarily intensive sauna / steam use.

The Young: The body temperature of young children will rise much quicker than that of adults due to their under developed thermo-mechanisms. This is why we will only permit the use of the sauna / steam to over 18 year olds.
