4 Steps to Sauna Detox
Now you know the health benefits of sauna detoxification, but do you know how to use an infrared sauna to properly detox? While everybody is different, we have created a helpful guide to detoxification our Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna.
Step 1: Hydrate
Each day you are planning to use the Sauna, make sure your water intake increases. While our infrared sauna detoxification isn’t harsh, you are still sweating – some much more than others. The sweat produced in the infrared sauna is 80 – 85% water, so it is important that before, during, and after your sauna detox session, you drink plenty of water to rehydrate.
Step 2: Set Time Limits
The amount of time spent in a sauna detox session may vary depending upon your tolerance and daily activity level. To get your body accustomed to infrared therapy, start with 15 - 20minute sessions every other day. Gradually increase towards 50-minute daily sessions in the optimal temperature range. Listen to your body. Be aware of excessive sweating. If you begin to feel symptoms such as nausea, fatigue, or flu-like symptoms during your sauna session, discontinue use.
Step 3: Find a Comfortable Temperature
The sauna is pre-heated to at least 110ºF before each visit. The optimal sauna experience occurs between 120° and 140°F. Our sauna offers a detoxification program that combines far and mid infrared, starting at a high intensity to increase core temperature then reduces to a low, comfortable intensity level.
Step 4: Rinse Off
After each sauna session, dry off with a towel. It is best to let your body cool off naturally while still burning calories. Finish it off with a cool glass of water and you are ready to take on the day.
