For optimal benefits, set your controls to maintain a sauna temperature that is comfortable for you. Please remember that infrared heat is simply radiant energy in the form of a band of light that radiates heat penetrating the skin to a depth of 1-1/2 inches or more. This radiant heat is efficient because it warms the body internally, not the air. Setting higher temperatures may add to personal discomfort with very little therapeutic value. To regulate the temperature in your SAUNA DOME during use adjust the temperature controls for both sections of the SAUNA DOME.
- For optimal results refrain from using the sauna on a full stomach.
- It is important to remain hydrated. For best results drink water prior, during and after your sauna session.
- Do not apply excess body lotion to your body prior to a sauna session.
- Use at least 2-3 towels:
Lay down on one towel for perspiration absorption and cushioning.
Use another towel under your head to absorb extra sweat.
Use a third towel to wipe off your body surface sweat.
- At the first sign of a cold or flu, increasing sauna sessions may be beneficial in boosting the immune system and decreasing the reproductive rate of viruses and bacteria.
- As your body becomes more heat conditioned, you may want to increase your sauna session to 45 minutes or longer
Please remember to hydrate your system with plenty of water during the full session.
Note: many people with heavy metal, chemical or pesticide toxicity levels may find it difficult to sweat initially; for some individuals it may require 5-10 sessions before measurable sweat volume is evident, but continuous water intake will enhance detoxification. Even without measurable sweat, the IR sauna is helping to eliminate toxins through urine, bowels and hair.
