Guidelines for Safe Infrared Sauna Use
Please review and be aware of the Contraindications before you begin your session. If you are being treated for a medical condition, you should consult with your treating physician before beginning your first session.
You will be sweating a lot. You should well hydrate yourself before, during, and after a sauna session. Drink at least 8 ounces of water immediately prior to your session. We recommend that you bring a water bottle and drink at least 8 ounces during your session.
After your session, continue to drink plenty of water for several hours. Alternatively, may want to drink a low sugar sports drink to replace lost electrolytes. Another good electrolyte replacement step would be to eat a salty snack and a banana following your session.
Avoid wearing make-up, perfume, lotions, or other oils that may run or block your pores. We will have make-up remover available if you need it.
We recommend you take your sauna wearing a bathing suit or loose fitting shorts, and a T shirt or tank top. You may also want to wear a robe, which we will provide for each session . We suggest wearing flip flops on your feet. Our sauna room is completely private, and there will be an area to take off and put on your street clothes.
We will provide a towel for you sit on, and another towel to place on the sauna floor. We ask that you bring your own towel to wipe your sweat during the session, and to wipe off after your session. We do not have shower facilities, but do recommend that you shower within several hours of your sauna.
Sessions will normally last between 30 and 45 minutes. You will be able to select pre-set programs designed for various desired health benefits ( i.e, skin purification, pain relief, detoxification, etc.). You may also wish to create your own custom settings. Please be on time for your session. If you are late, your session may have to be cut short.
For your first session or two, consider limiting your session to 20 minutes in order to become accustomed to the sauna. If at any time you begin to feel faint, dizzy, nauseated, or not feeling well, step out of the sauna immediately. If you begin feeling better after several minutes, you may re- enter the sauna cabin.
The temperature inside the sauna will range from 100 to160 degrees. The temperature will be adjustable from inside the sauna if you desire a lower temperature. Alternatively, you can simply open the door to the cabin to allow cooling. Again, always step out of the cabin immediately if you begin to experience discomfort or to not feel well.
Use of our Infrared Sauna will result in the release of toxins which are stored in tissue and fat cells. Toxins in the skin and layer of fat just below the skin will be removed through sweating. Toxins residing deeper below the skin will be released into the body’s interstitial fluid around the releasing cells. To avoid having toxins being re-absorbed by your body (retoxification), it is recommended that you take a binding supplement (binds with metals and bio-toxins) to assist your body in removing the toxins out of your body (and into the toilet). Dr. Rose recommends the use of BIND* (link) for this purpose.
Sessions should be limited to one per day. Regular sessions of two to three times per week for several weeks will maximize health benefits.
Some people will begin to sweat almost immediately, while others may take a full session or two before they begin sweating. Just let your body sweat at its own pace. Sweating will likely increase toward the end of your session.
Our Sunlighten sauna heaters use ultra- low EMF technology that reduces EMF to practically undetectable levels. The heaters have gone through comprehensive third-party testing to ensure safe levels of EMF. The EMF levels of Sunlighten saunas are well below the threshold of what is generally considered safe, and in fact, produce less EMF than a standard hair dryer.
