Can pregnant women use the sauna or have a massage at Art of Sauna?

Sauna:
There is mixed information medically regarding sauna and pregnancy. Some studies say that it’s safe, however other studies show that raising the core temperature of a pregnant woman can raise the core temperature of the unborn baby, resulting in spinal cord and brain issues, especially in the first trimester. Unborn babies are unable to regulate their own core temperature and cool themselves off.
At Art of Sauna, we want to make sure everyone is safe.

Massage:
Both of our Registered Massage Therapists, Matthew Rasmussen and Igor Mednikov are able to treat pregnant women.
Please book an appointment with one of them if you are pregnant and would like a massage during FIRST TRIMESTER ONLY.

PLEASE INFORM US IF YOU ARE PREGNANT AND WANT A MASSAGE, AND IF YOU WANT TO USE THE SAUNA, PLEASE CONSIDER THIS INFORMATION PROVIDED IN THIS SECTION AND DISCUSS IT WITH YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE BOOKING AN APPOINTMENT WITH US.

Why do people wear hats in the sauna?

The felt hat is an important accessory when steaming, this is because the felt is a great insulator, meaning that it keeps the air inside of it at a constant temperature. The felt hat helps raise your core temperature without feeling overheated because it keeps your head dry and cool. Learn more.
