Frequently Asked Questions
DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING?
Not at all! We provide all the basics; however, if you would like you may bring your own personal products. Some people like to bring a bathing suit but it is not a requirement. Also, water is available for your consumption.
WHY IS FIR IMPORTANT TO THE HUMAN BODY?
FIR has the ability to penetrate, refract, radiate and reflect. The human body can absorb FIR because of its deep penetrating ability. When FIR penetrates through skin to the subcutaneous tissues, it transforms from light energy into heat energy. The thermal effect within the deep layers of the tissues causes bloods vessels and capillaries to dilate, promoting a better blood circulation, and the heat so produced helps to get rid of body toxins and metabolic wastes through sweating.
HOW LONG IS A SESSION?
Your actual Infrared Sauna Session is 40 minutes long, but your appointment time is blocked out for an hour in the room so you’ll have plenty of time to get in and out. This hour time slot allows for you to rinse before or shower after your session. In addition, it allows for us to answer any questions you may have upon arrival.
30-40 minutes is standard to gain the full benefits from the infrared.
HOW HOT DOES IT GET?
The heat in our Sauna is 100% customizable up to a heat of 150℉, so that’s up to you! Our sauna has a “perfect” temperature for everyone. We start everyone out at 50℃ (122℉), which is most comfortable yet still yields massive detox results. Because your body is heated from the core outward and you have your favorite Netflix show as a distraction, the temperature doesn’t really become noticeable or feel to “too hot” until the last 10 minutes of your session. This allows for a meditative, enjoyable, relaxing experience.
HOW MUCH WILL I SWEAT?
It is different for everyone, which is why the heat is customizable. Some clients prefer not to sweat too much while others prefer their saunas extra hot so they sweat no matter what. Heating from the inside out allows for a deep, thorough detox. You will eventually tolerate more heat as you do it more often.
SHOULD I EAT BEFORE GOING INTO THE SAUNA?
It is recommended that you wait to eat 1-2 hours before entering the sauna, and drink as much water as possible before your session. However, if you’ve eaten something, it’s not going to hurt you – your body will just be digesting and detoxing at the same time.
SHOULD I MOISTURIZE BEFORE SAUNA? CAN I USE LOTION OR OILS IN THE SAUNA?
We recommend NOT using any skincare products on your body before using any of our services. During your sessions, you are trying to release toxins through your skin, so putting on topical products may interfere with this process.
WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER MY SAUNA SESSION?
STAY HYDRATED! Your body has just released heavy toxins and build up along with water. It is important to replace the water you lost, and in addition, drinking water after your session will help flush out any leftover toxins that need to be released. You may feel hungry after your session – if you choose to grab a snack, we recommend eating as clean as possible.
HOW OFTEN CAN I DO INFRARED SAUNA?
Every day as long as you are hydrating! Most of our clients and members come 2-3 times a week for measurable (and visible) results. Come and get the glow, while feeling better, sleeping better, and rejuvenating your energy. Just remember that the more often you do a sauna session the more you will need to hydrate. If you need help figuring out how often to do a sauna just ask, we are passionate and happy to help!
DO YOU HAVE SHOWERS AVAILABLE?
We sure do! There is a separate shower for those that use the sauna. It is preferred to shower before and after.
CAN I LITERALLY "NETFLIX & SAUNA"?
Yes! We have a cinema type setting with built in speakers inside the sauna. Our television is hooked up not only to Netflix but Gaia, YouTube, Starz etc.
