Make the Most Out of Your Far Infrared Sauna Sessions

Posted by

Whether you’re waiting for the far infrared sauna you ordered or  preparing for your first sauna experience, it’s crucial that you know how to make the most out of your upcoming session(s).  After all, first impressions matter.

If your first session with your personal sauna is less than ideal, then chances are you’re not going to use it again, so it’s important to get it right the first time.

How to Maximize Your Far Infrared Sauna Sessions

Make sure you enjoy every second of your infrared sauna sessions. Follow the tips below!

  1. Make sure it’s okay for you to use a sauna.

Yes, not everyone can use the sauna. If you are pregnant, diabetic, or have a heart condition, it’s best that you consult a healthcare professional first before your sauna session. The intense heat may trigger negative reactions that can put your health at risk.

  1. Use the sauna an hour or two after eating.

Suddenly raising your body temperature minutes after a hearty meal can disrupt  your digestive process.  It can also keep you from achieving the best detoxification outcome possible.  Be patient and wait after eating before entering the sauna.

  1. Time your sessions.

Stay for no more than 20 minutes on your first few sessions. Once you’ve grown used to the heat, slowly lengthen your session duration. Slowly work your way up to 40-50 minute sessions. Know your limits and stick to them, otherwise  you’ll do more harm than good to your health.

  1. Stay hydrated.

Remember, you’re going to lose a lot of water with each session, so  make sure you keep yourself hydrated. Drink lots of water before your session to enhance the detoxification process and drink  lots of water during and after your session as well to avoid dehydration.

  1. Bring two towels with you.

 If you’re entering an outdoor infrared sauna, also bring a bathrobe. Take one towel with you into the sauna room and pat  yourself dry frequently during your session to encourage your body to sweat  more. Leave one towel outside for later use.

  1. Wear sauna-friendly clothing.

 This is especially true if you’re going to a communal sauna room. Sauna-friendly apparel includes—but are not limited to—t-shirts, lightweight shorts, swimsuits, and underwear. The more skin exposure, the better. Some sauna houses, particularly those that have separate rooms for men and women, encourage their patrons to wear their birthday suits. Other sauna houses endorse otherwise.  Consider going commando if you’re using a personal sauna.

  1. Take some time to rest after your sessions.

Give yourself at least ten minutes to cool down after your session, then just  sit back and relax. Let your body sweat and slowly wind down to its normal temperature.  Also make sure to drink lots of water and wipe off all the sweat.

Toward the Best Home Sauna Experience

For the best experience, make a checklist reminding you of these tips. Emphasize those that pertain to what you should and shouldn’t do during your sessions.  Take the list with you when you enter the sauna, and that  way, you won’t forget any of them!
