Using an infrared sauna is easy! Follow just a few simple guidelines and you can increase the overall benefits of your sauna sessions. Once you're familiar with the controls of your sauna, feel free to adjust the guildelines to suits your personal needs.
Drink plenty of water before, during, and after you use your sauna.
Preheat your sauna to the desired temperature approximately 20-30 minutes before you get in. The time needed to heat the sauna depends on the sauna's size and the ambient temperature. Most sauna beginners set their saunas in the range of 110° F to 118° F. Experiment in small increments until you find the temperature you like best.
While the sauna preheats, prepare yourself. If you take a warm bath or shower, or do some light physical exercises, it will decrease the time it takes for your body to perspire once you enter the sauna.
Now you're ready! In the beginning, use the sauna once or twice per week. Wear as little clothing as is comfortable for you--infrared rays cannot easily penetrate clothing. Take two towels into the sauna with you: one is to sit on and the other is to wipe sweat off your skin.
At first, set a timer for 15 to 20 minutes. Over time, you can add more time.
While in the sauna, focus on relaxing and meditating. Allow yourself to destress. Massage sore and tense muscles. Wipe away excess sweat to allow for more intense sweating. If at any point you become dizzy, sleepy, or experience any pain or discomfort, exit the sauna at once.
When the timer announces the session is over, turn off the power and remain in the sauna with the door ajar for about 10 minutes. This gives your body an opportunity to cool down slowly. Wait at least 20 minutes and then take a warm shower to wash the sweat off your body.
Infrared saunas are very affordable to operate per session. Saunas operate on 110 volts and the power rating is similar to a high-heat hair dryer. They are far more economical to operate than traditional saunas.
Outdoors saunas use traditional electric heaters because infrared cannot effectively overcome cool ambient temperatures to heat the sauna. For indoor saunas, an infrared heating system is more cost effective and has greater therapeutic effects.
Infrared saunas are not designed for outdoor use. Therefore, they should not be exposed to the elements. In warmer climates, a covered porch may be a suitable location if the sauna is protected from the weather. However, exposing your infrared sauna to outdoor conditions may void the manufacturer's warranty.
Saunas are relatively inexpensive to operate and of course only use power when you are operating them.
There are many variables, but a range of 10 to 30 cents an hour would be a reasonably good estimate.
The free-standing (pre-fabricated) saunas can be disassembled for resale.
Weight Loss -- In a single sauna session, you can burn up to 600 calories. That's equivalent to 30 minutes of rowing. Infrared saunas accelerate your heart rate, which in turn burns calories. The infrared penetrates the skin and breaks down fat and water pockets. Some people who are unsuccessful with dieting find success after using an infrared sauna. For people with physical limitations, saunas can be a great exercise alternative.
Immune System -- Typically, a sauna session causes a brief and minor body temperature increase. This is similar to the body's natural defenses against bacteria, microbes, and infection. The result is improvement of the immune system by increasing the production of white blood cells.
Removing Toxins -- Toxins present in the body block blood circulation and impair cellular energy. When the immune system is inhibited in this way, it becomes difficult for the body to fight disease. When exposed to infrared heat, the large water molecules in our bodies that contain toxic gases vibrate and are broken down. Toxic gases and materials are then released. Infrared heat is also used to treat clogged capillaries, as the heat expands the capillaries and skin pores to expel the toxins.
Decreases Joint Stiffness and Pain Relief -- Heat is known to reduce sensations of pain. Heat may also cause increased production of endorphins and the shutting down of the "spinal gate", each of which reduces pain.
Success with infrared has been reported by medical researchers in the following types of cases:
TMJ Arthritis Acel-dacel Injury Sequelae
Tight Shoulders - relaxed
Spinal Cord Shock - post traumatic shock treatment
Muscle Tension - relaxed
Shoulder Pain - relieved or eliminated
Bursitis - relieved or eliminated
Muscle Spasms - reduced or eliminated
Low Back Pain - relieved
Compression Fracture - pain eliminated for 3 days with only a single treatment
Post-exercise Muscle Pain - IR proven vital to competitive athletes
Arthritis: Gouty, Rheumatoid, Traumatic, DJD - each substantially relieved or improved
Injuries - radiant heat helps with sprains and strains
Infrared heat penetrates the human body faster and deeper than the humid surface heat typical of a traditional sauna. Infrared saunas also use less energy to operate, heat up more quickly and are more effective at lower temperatures, making it easier for some to tolerate the heat for longer periods of time. Infrared heat causes the body to produce 3 times more perspiration, removing 4 times more toxins and waste.
Our infrared saunas have a maximum setting of about 150 degrees. They rarely get to those temperatures, however. They typically operate between 130 degrees and 145 degrees, depending on the conditions in the room.
