    HI Jelly

    When I was in college many moons ago, I tried
    their sauna room once. That was enough for me.
    I hated it. It was so stifling. You couldn't pay me to
    get in another one!

    Now, the hot tub is a whole other story. You practically have to pay me to get out!

    I just wanted to mention something I read regarding
    the safety of hot tubs and thought it might apply
    to sauna as well.

    I am not sure if you are still on the anticoagulants
    but wanted to make sure just in case.

    Safety guidelines for use of hot tub:

    Never use a hot tub while under the influence of alcohol, anti-coagulants, antihistamines, vasoconstrictors, vasodilators, stimulants, hypnotics, narcotics, or tranquilizers. Spa heat accelerates the effects of alcohol and drugs and cause unconsciousness. Leave the hot tub immediately if you feel uncomfortable or drowsy.

    I also just posted an article that explains it in more
    detail on a new thread.

    Just be careful.
