Infrared Sauna FAQs
What is the difference between an infrared sauna and a steam infused sauna?
Traditional saunas heat the air through steam and coals, infrared saunas use infrared waves of light through lamps to make heat. These infrared waves don’t heat the air around you in the sauna, but instead, heat your core body directly, allowing you to experience the benefits of a sauna but at a lower temperature.
Is an infrared sauna good for you?
Absolutely! It has been claimed that what happens, physiologically, in an infrared sauna mimics exercise. This can be attributed to the improvement of heart health and overall wellbeing. Additionally, there are multiple health benefits to using an infrared sauna as outlined above such as detoxification, improved blood circulation and muscle pain relief.
But please remember, there are health conditions listed above that infrared sauna therapy could be harmful, so please check with your physician if you have any of the listed conditions before booking in.
How often should I use an infrared sauna?
If you are new to infrared saunas then we recommend starting off with 1-2 a week. Once you have a more regular practice, we recommend using the sauna 3-4 days a week.
What do I need to do before going for an infrared sauna?
We advise abstaining from alcohol for 24 hours prior to your sauna booking, to avoid excessive dehydration. Hydration is crucial. Ensure that you are drinking more water than usual throughout the day. Treat it as you would a workout!
What do I do while I’m in the sauna? Can I use my devices?
Relax! You can use this time to rest, meditate, read a book or enjoy with a friend/partner, although we do not recommend falling asleep.
What do I do when my infrared sauna session is finished?
Be sure to take your time standing up at the end of your session, standing up too quickly can cause you to feel light headed.
Continue to keep yourself well hydrated even after your sauna session.
If you would like, rinse off in the shower and turn it on cold to cool the body down and feel the benefits of hot cold immersion therapy! Your body will continue to feel warm for some time afterwards, so consider bringing some looser clothing to help lower your body temperature.
Then step out of the room and take a seat and enjoy a cup of tea served by a member of our team!
What do I wear in the sauna?
We ask that you please wear swimwear in the sauna.
What happens if I can’t handle the heat or start to feel unwell?
If the sauna becomes too hot or intense for you, simply open the vent to allow a little air in. You can even open the door for a minute or so to let fresh air inside.
If you start to feel queasy, light headed or start to develop a headache, please exit the sauna, let a staff member know and take a seat or lay down on one of our seats to recuperate. We will bring you whatever you need to help.
