The impact of the snow sauna on health

Cold air refreshes the lungs and the skin. The body cools down slowly without experiencing a cold shock. The intensity of the coldness depends on how long you stay and whether or not you rub the snow into your skin. This should not be compared to cryotherapy where the body is exposed to a temperature of -110°C. The effects of the cold are similar but the SnowRoom is a comfortable wellness environment that does not require any medical supervision.


Positive effects of the method

Hot and cold

A detailed overview of the application in 3 stages:

  • Warming phase in the sauna

    Sit or lie down and relax for approx. 12-15 minutes in the sauna, depending on the level of physical comfort. Allow body and soul to be enveloped in the soothing warmth.

  • Cooling phase in the SnowRoom

    Enter the SnowRoom with slippers or socks and wrapped in a towel. Sit down or stand up and take deep breaths to inflate the lungs and rub snow on any areas which may be painful. Women are advised to stay for 3-5 minutes and men for 4-8 minutes, but the time may vary depending on the response of the body and the frequency of use of the SnowRoom.

  • Relaxation phase at ambient temperature

    After visiting the SnowRoom, relax for at least 15-20 minutes to give the body time to absorb the positive effects of the treatment. The cycle can be repeated several times in succession. After three SnowRoom sessions at most, the body needs a slightly longer interval to recover from the exhilarating effect. EdiIn any case, it is important to ensure appropriate warmth and sufficient fluid intake.
