INFRARED SAUNA FAQ

Frequently asked questions

How important is hydration? Do I need to drink water?


Most people do not drink enough water to begin with and now that you are using an
infrared sauna and sweating, it is even more important to stay properly hydrated.
Always drink plenty of water before, during and after your sauna session.




What do I wear for my sauna session?


You can go nude if you would like as more skin exposure is preferable, but be sure to
put down a towel to absorb your sweat. Swimsuits or any lightweight apparel are ok as
well. We recommend bringing clothing that are loose fitting and comfortable to put back
on after your session.




Do you have towels?


Yes. We provide you with two towels. We recommend that you use one towel to lay on
the bench and the other one to wrap yourself in.




How hot will the sauna get?


The ideal temperature for an infrared sauna is between 110°F to 130°F. The radiant
heat is more efficient because it warms you, not the air around you. We recommend
entering the minute that we turn on your session to enjoy full benefits of the infrared. If it
gets too hot, simply open the door for a minute to let fresh air inside.




How will I feel during and after my sauna session?


Infrared saunas heat you gently and slowly, making it a relaxing experience for most
people. You may find that you do not sweat for the first 10-15 minutes, or not very much
at all your first time. With increased usage you will likely notice an increased ability to
sweat more productively. After sweating you will feel great. You may notice glowing
skin, diminished wrinkles, muscle and injury relief as well as a sense of relaxation.




What should I do after the sauna?


When you finish your sweat, it is important to relax and cool down while your body
continues to perspire. Sit or recline with a towel or wrap around you for a few minutes.




Is there anyone who should avoid the sauna?


Pregnant women, individuals with pacemakers, those who have an inability to sweat.
Nevertheless, you should consult your physician prior to using an infrared sauna.




Is it true I am still burning calories up to an hour after my session?


Yes. By increasing your heart rate and core body temperature by 3 degrees in your
session, it could take up to an hour to return to normal. We encourage you to stay active
before or after your session if you want to maximize the calorie burn.




How do you maintain the sauna?


We take cleanliness very seriously and ensure the suite is fully cleaned in between
sessions with non-toxic cleaning supplies. Additionally, infrared heat kills 99% of
bacteria, creating an inherently sterile environment.
