IR Sauna

RECOMMENDATIONS BEFORE & DURING SAUNA SESSION


HERE’S SOME PREP TIPS AND WHAT TO EXPECT

Hydrate – Its best to be hydrated before your treatment. Drink water or non-sugary sports drink or coconut water. Wait at least a couple hours after eating. Don’t drink to much as you don’t want to have to go to the bathroom half way through your session.

What to wear – Our rooms are private with a locked door so you can feel free to wear as little as you like. There will be a towel provided for you to sit on so you can wear a bathing suit, loose fitting clothes or your birthday suit! It’s totally up to you!

During

One of the main benefits of infrared saunas is that you can experience the benefits of sweating without the extreme heat.

When you enter the sauna, place layers of towels on the bench seat to absorb perspiration during your session. The infrared rays will penetrate clothing and towels. Listen to your body and don’t overdo it.

If you’re new to using an Infrared Sauna, keep in mind that you typically don’t start sweating until 10-15 minutes into the session.

If you start to feel uncomfortable for any reason like feeling faint or claustrophobic, cut the session short or open the sauna door for a bit. The more you use the sauna you will get used to the experience and you will be able to tolerate longer sessions. While in the sauna you can experiment with stretching your arms, legs, neck, back area, etc. The sauna will help you to achieve increased body flexibility, range of motion, and reduce chronic stiffness and problem areas.

After

We have a private shower located across from the sauna room. So feel free to take a shower after and remove any excess toxins form the surface of your skin. We recommend a cold shower that will help close up your pores quickly and leave your skin feeling incredibly smooth. (there are many other additional benefits to the cold shower as well)

Benefits

DETOXIFICATION

Sweating is one of the body’s most natural ways to eliminate toxins, making it a crucial part of detoxification. When compared to traditional Swedish saunas, infrared saunas allow you to eliminate about seven times more toxins.

PAIN RELIEF

If you suffer from muscle aches or joint pain, infrared saunas can relieve this form of inflammation by increasing circulation and relaxing your muscles. Floating is also a tool for pain relief and a great combo with the infrared sauna.

RECOVERY

Helps to promote muscle recovery, reduce tension and eliminate performance inhibiting toxic burdens from an athlete’s body.

RELAXATION

Infrared sauna therapy promotes relaxation by helping to balance your body’s level of cortisol, your body’s primary stress hormone. The heat generated by the sauna will also help to relax muscles and relieve tension throughout the body, allowing you to relax and de-stress.

WEIGHT LOSS

The heat generated by an infrared sauna will cause your core temperature to increase, which can also lead to an increased heart rate — the same increase in heart rate that you experience when exercising. When your body has to work harder to lower your core temperature or keep up with an increased heart rate, your body will burn more calories, resulting in weight loss.

CIRCULATION

As the heat from infrared saunas increases your core body temperature, your circulation will increase along with it. Consistent infrared sauna sessions, especially in the middle-infrared level, can stimulate blood flow, improve muscle recovery, and decrease pain and inflammation after intense exercise.

ANTI-AGING

Saunas increase heat shock proteins, antioxidant enzymes, and stimulate cellular cleanup (autophagy), which can help our cells function like new. In aging mice, an increase in heat shock proteins help delay aging and improves cognitive function.

IMMUNE/CELL HEALTH

During a sauna session, white blood cells increase in the bloodstream, suggesting an elevation of the body’s natural defense against illness.

HEART HEALTH

Infrared sauna therapy can help keep blood pressure within healthy levels, lower cholesterol, reduce chronic pain and be of therapeutic value to patients with chronic congestive heart disease (CHD).
