"I have felt great since I used the sauna. The effects were powerful - I've been feeling clear, rejuvenated, and energised."
"I enjoyed the infrared sauna sessions at your establishment. I intend on incorporating these sessions in the future."
"I really enjoyed the sauna - I took your advice to stay very well hydrated and felt fine afterwards, very relaxed and some good pain relief in my neck."
The main difference between an infrared sauna and a traditional sauna is the heat. While traditional saunas use temperatures high as 185 to 195 degrees F, infrared saunas use a milder temperature – between 120 to 150 degrees F.
Don’t worry about the effect - the heat of infrared saunas travels much deeper into the body so they are able to cause intense sweat at a lower temperature.
Most people use infrared sauna 3-4 times a week but it’s completely safe to use it on a daily basis. Although it’s important to make sure that you don’t stay in the sauna longer than 30 minutes a day because you might get dehydrated. Make sure you bring a bottle of water to each session.
The more you use the infrared sauna, the more benefits you’ll get. Try enjoying your treatment early in the morning or before bedtime; anytime will do.
Enjoying infrared sauna therapy is a safe habit for healthy people of all ages. Daily therapies can benefit your heart and ease symptoms associated with chronic pain.
You could also experience improved metabolism, blood circulation, and improved immune system. Infrared therapy has a strong ability to detoxify the body because of the softer heat that penetrates deeper into the skin than a standard sauna.
It might be better to spend a few minutes in the sauna before your workout session. Infrared sauna therapy will warm you up and relieve muscle pain thus making you ready to give your maximum.
After the workout session, your body needs to recover from exercise and sitting in a sauna for more than five minutes will keep your heart rate up – it’s like a power walk after training.
This kind of activity is going to delay your body form starting the recovery process.
The infrared sauna is good for arthritis because it uses infrared waves which heat your body evenly. It helps to improve your circulation and relaxes stiff, sore and tired muscles.
Infrared therapy will not cure arthritis but it will provide short-term symptom relief thus making you feel more comfortable.
The infrared sauna is great for detox due to the infrared heat waves are penetrating deeper into the skin which allows your body to set free of stored toxins gradually.
We are all exposed to hundreds of chemicals a day and not all of those can be processed adequately by our bodies. Infrared sauna therapy can help your body to get rid of the dangerous toxins – the toxins with which liver and kidneys can’t cope.
An infrared sauna can help you lose weight by detoxifying the body of toxins that promote weight gain.
You’ll produce the same amount of sweat in a 30-minute session in an infrared sauna as if you run 2-3 miles. The weight of the water you expelled will be regained by re-hydrating with water, but not the calories you lost.
According to Dr. Masakazu Imamura, MD study, published in the Journal of American College of Cardiology in 2001 – the infrared sauna promises to help get rid of 400-600 calories in a 30-minute session.
You can wear clothes in an infrared sauna, but as little as possible. The best option would be not to wear anything and feel completely relaxed because the room is private and fully enclosed.
If you decide to wear clothes, choose loose-fitting clothes that breathe; a cotton t-shirt, shorts, a tank top or bathers.
Make baby steps before your body gets used to the infrared sauna therapy. Start slowly and end your first session after only five or ten minutes. That’s the best way to know if your body can handle the infrared sauna sessions safely and comfortably.
The most important thing is to listen to your body and pay attention to its signals. You’ll gradually get the most of it. Don’t forget to hydrate and remember; it’s not recommended to stay in the sauna more than 30 minutes.
