Picture a dark room, red colour light in the ceiling, lavender essential oil, 45 degrees for 45 minutes, listening to a relaxing meditation whilst enjoying a rejuvenating sweat.
There’s nothing quite like a 45-minute sweat session in a sauna to make you feel more relaxed and rested. Unlike a traditional sauna, infrared saunas don’t heat the air around you. Instead, they use infrared panels that produce heat directly to the body that easily penetrates human tissue.
You can utilise the sauna by itself, start with the sauna before your relaxation treatment to enhance your treatment benefits or add an LED session to your sauna so you can target muscle or injury repair.
Here are just some of the benefits of using an infrared sauna.
- better sleep
- weight loss
- relief from sore muscles – post sport recovery
- relief from joint pain such as arthritis
- clear and tighter skin
- improved circulation
- help for people with chronic fatigue syndrome
There are guidelines you can follow, but ultimately, how you choose to use the infrared sauna is up to you. Here are some tips to get you started.
Drink Water – Stay Hydrated
Drink a glass of water before your session. You can also bring water into the sauna, especially if you’re sensitive to higher heats. We have a water machine at the salon if you need a refill. Drinking fluids the day before will also help you stay hydrated.
Choose The Temperature
The average temperature for an infrared sauna, ranges from 40 to 70 degrees, with beginners starting out at the lower end and more experienced users at the higher end. If this is your first time, start between 40 and 50 degrees. You may want to stay at this temperature for a few sessions. You can always increase the temperature each session until you reach 70 degrees.
Length Of Time
For first-time users, start with 10 to 15 minutes intervals. You can add time each session until you reach the suggested time of 30 to 45 minutes. We will set the timer for you (45 minutes) as we don’t want you to stay in there too long and risk becoming dehydrated.
How you dress is your choice. Some people will wear bathing suits, while others prefer to go in naked. You will be provided with a towel to sit on.
What You Can Do While In The Sauna
Relax, read, meditate, listen to music, or hang with a friend. Our sauna fits two! Just don’t go to sleep.
After The Session Is Over
When your session is done, it’s suggested that you take
your time and let your body cool down. Once cooled down, feel free to take a shower or bath. Ensure you drink plenty of water post session.
Number Of Sessions Per Week
We recommend using the sauna three to four days per week. Daily use is also ok if you are fit and healthy.
We have 10 pack sessions available giving you half price saunas. Bring a friend for only $10 more per session
