With our Infrared Sauna gaining popularity, our regular clients are asking questions about how it works. We love the Sauna, without fail after every session we walk out feeling like a million bucks! So healthy & rejuvenated. The more we use it, the more we realise just how profound it’s benefits are. Our tummies are better and we are continually surprised by the improvement in any pain we feel. We’ve already put together a guide introducing the Infrared Sauna so today we just wanted to focus on what to expect. This is why we’ve put together our infrared sauna user guide.
We will introduce you to what a typical session looks like and some important aftercare tips. This will allow you to maximise your benefits and your experience with us.
Infrared Sauna User Guide
Your first Infrared Sauna session will involve a proper intake and run down of how the sauna works.
It is important for our due diligence as well as your health & well being that we do a proper intake to understand your health position. Ensuring that you are safe to use the sauna is important for you so that you get the most out of your session. It also allows us to guide you on how to maximise the benefits in a way tailored to you.
When we introduce you to the sauna we will show you how the temperature works and how you can modify it depending on your needs. If you get too hot in the infrared sauna, we recommend lowering the temperature by 5 degrees at a time. This will take the edge off the heat, without dropping your body temperature too much. It is not recommended to rinse off during the session as this will drastically drop your body temperature and may cause you to feel faint.
Our Infrared Sauna user guide will also include a run down of the included entertainment system. It is your choice whether you prefer to read a book, meditate, listen to music or watch Netflix. Prior to your session we will show you how all of this works so that you can customise the experience to your personal desires.
During your sauna time you will find that you will sweat quite profusely. This is because the infrared light penetrates deep into your core, heating you from the inside. Sweat therefore is immense! This is a very different experience to a steam sauna. You can read more here about the difference between a steam sauna vs an infrared sauna.
Staying hydrated whilst you are in the sauna is recommended. Although we do request that any water taken into the sauna remains with the lid on! As you will continue to sweat and/or feel the effects for your infrared sauna for a couple more hours, staying hydrated after the sauna is also very important.
After your session
Our Sauna room does have a shower for your personal use available. You are welcome to rinse off after your session if you wish. Alternatively you can use the fresh towels provided to pat yourself dry. As you will continue to produce sweat for a while after your session, some people prefer to shower about 30mins or so later. This ensures a proper cleanse. The choice however is up to you!
The full spectrum infrared waves affect your body on a deep cellular level. This is beneficial to your mitochondrial cells, pain receptors and cardiovascular health. Basking in this light spectrum is also excellent for heavy metal detoxification. During the winter months when it is cooler, using the infrared sauna is an excellent way to de stress & quite literally melt the tension from stiffening up away.
Due to the detoxification that using the sauna promotes we do recommend staying hydrated for the rest of the day to continue flushing the system. Additionally it is important that your nutrition is supportive also. Eat a light meal, ensuring it is full of fresh vegetables. If you have access to a juicer then green juices are excellent; if you can add spirulina or barley grass that is perfect as they further assist with heavy metal detox.
