Far Infrared Sauna

How should I prepare for my treatment?

  • Please plan to wear a clean bathing suit as the light will not penetrate clothing. A towel will be provided.

  • Be sure to eat a snack or small meal an hour or two before your appointment.

  • Avoid deodorant, lotions, makeup, perfume or other skin products prior to sauna use.

  • Avoid sugar, drinking alcohol or caffeine before and after.

  • Do drink plenty of water before and after your treatment.  We recommend two liters of warm water with juice from half of a fresh lemon upon waking the day of your session.

  • Contraindications:  If you have any health conditions such as high blood pressure, bleeding disorder, heart conditions, or are under medical care, or if you are on medications that inhibit the body's ability to sweat. please get cleared by your doctor before your first session.  Do not use if pregnant or breastfeeding.  Avoid sauna use for 48hrs after an acute injury.

What does the treatment consist of?

First time users are encouraged to use a temperature of 120°F for the first couple sessions staying no longer than 20 minutes to see how the body will react to the heat.  Even though saunas are considered safe, you will want to take caution to not overheat or become dehydrated.  While in the sauna feel free to relax, read, meditate, listen to music - just don't take a nap.  We recommend one session a week for the first couple weeks.

Pat your skin dry with a clean towel frequently during the sauna to remove sweat, which contains toxins you do not want to reabsorb through your skin.  Afterwards, pat dry with a towel as the oils in your skin are enhanced with far infrared sauna so showering is not advised.

As you get comfortable with the treatment, gradually increase the time, temperature, and/or frequency of visits.  Recommended frequency two to three times per week.  Maximum of one 40-minute session per day.
