Steam rooms use heat as well as humidity, if you have any health problems or are in doubt whether you can use a steam room, you should consult a doctor before you use the steam room.

RULES & Guidelines:

  • Please shower before and after use.
  • Glass bottles, razors or other sharp items are not permitted in the steam room.
  • Total time in the steam room should not exceed 20 minutes​, too much exposure may result in dizziness, nausea or fainting.
  • Make sure you wait at least an ​hour after eating​ before you enter the steam room.
  • Although it may seem natural to go into a steam room right after ​exercising​, it is best to let your body cool down, this helps reduce the risk of hyperthermia, which can happen when you are extremely overheated.
  • Drink plenty of water​ before and after using the steam room as dehydration can become a problem even in a humid environment.
  • Remove watches, jewellery​ etc as they can become very hot in the steam room.
  • Remove contact lenses​ and ​remove all make-up​.
  • Take a warm shower before using the steam function to cleanse the skin.
  • Relax for around 5 to 10 minutes in the steam room (or less if it is uncomfortable) this raises the body temperature and the perspiration will cleanse the pores of the skin.
  • Take a cool shower.
  • Return to the steam room for a further 5 to 10 minutes. The hot / cold cycle can be repeated as often as comfortable.
  • Take a shower after using the steam function.
  • The ​steam outlet can become hot​ even though a safety guard has been fitted, please ensure you do not come into close contact with the outlet (located below the shower controls) as it could cause scalding.
