How To Get The Most Out Of Your Infrared Sauna?

To get the most out of your infrared sauna experience and maximize its benefits, consider the following tips:


  • Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water before and after using the infrared sauna. Sweating in the sauna can lead to dehydration, so it's essential to keep your body hydrated.

  • Preheat the Sauna: Preheat the sauna for about 10-15 minutes before entering. This allows the sauna to reach the desired temperature and ensures a comfortable and effective session.

  • Dress Appropriately: Wear minimal clothing or go nude to allow the infrared light to penetrate your skin effectively. Avoid wearing heavy clothing or accessories that may hinder the absorption of infrared heat.

  • Positioning: Sit or lie in a comfortable position inside the sauna, ensuring that the infrared heat is evenly distributed throughout your body. If you have specific areas you want to target, you can position yourself accordingly.

  • Relax and Breathe: Use the sauna session as a time for relaxation and stress relief. Practice deep breathing exercises to enhance relaxation and mindfulness.

  • Session Duration: Start with shorter sessions, typically around 10-20 minutes, and gradually increase the duration as you become accustomed to the heat. Listen to your body and don't overexert yourself.

  • Personalize the Experience: Adjust the temperature and intensity of the infrared sauna based on your comfort level and preferences. Experiment with different settings to find what works best for you.

  • Cleanse and Exfoliate: Before entering the sauna, take a shower to cleanse your skin and remove any lotions, oils, or sweat. Exfoliating your skin can help remove dead skin cells, allowing for better absorption of the infrared heat.

  • Post-Sauna Care: After your sauna session, take a cool shower to cool down your body and rinse off any sweat. Apply moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated.

  • Regular Use: Consistency is key. To maximize the benefits of an infrared sauna, incorporate regular sessions into your wellness routine. Aim for 2-3 sessions per week or as recommended by your healthcare professional.

Remember to consult with a healthcare professional before using an infrared sauna, especially if you have any underlying health conditions or concerns. They can provide personalized guidance and ensure the sauna is safe and suitable for your needs.
