Fall In Love With Your In Home Sauna

Ready to get started with your new in home sauna? Perfect! It’s time to maximize the usage of it and achieve the health benefits it can offer!

You must be feeling excited about your new far infrared sauna! I know you wanted to sweat it all out and detoxify! It is a good choice that you bought it because it’s different from the traditional sauna we used to know. Let’s get to know more about it!

Why is the far infrared sauna a better choice than a traditional sauna? 

A traditional sauna uses heat to warm the air to make us sweat. While an infrared sauna emits an invisible light, which is similar to the heat produced by the sun and our bodies. Infrared saunas create heat which penetrates our body directly without warming the air. As the body absorbs the heat, it activates our sweat glands and helps us to eliminate toxins, soothe joint and muscle pain, stimulate the metabolism which aids in weight loss, and also boosts collagen production to keep our skin looking healthy!

Other benefits

Want to have a buddy over for a spa day? Consider a 2 person sauna to take advantage of health benefits together! Sauna sessions cause vigorous sweating as well as an increased heart rate, this causes your body to quicken the movement of oxygen and blood through your system more efficiently. Several studies have shown that far infrared saunas help those who suffer from chronic health issues such as high blood pressure, headaches, type 2 diabetes, and rheumatoid arthritis. 

To achieve the benefits of the far infrared sauna, these basic tips below can be applied once you get started.

Keep yourself hydrated

Nothing beats a well-hydrated body, especially during and after your sauna sessions. Your body will sweat A LOT, and you will need to replenish your lost fluids and minerals. Consider some cool freshwater with a pinch of sea salt after your sessions. 

Set the right temperature

Don’t just hop into your sauna out of excitement! Preheat it to 115 – 140ºF. Once it reaches 90ºF – 110ºFF, it’s time to sweat it out!

Set the timer

Don’t rush, but don’t push yourself past your breaking point, especially when starting a sauna regime. Start slowly. Time yourself from the beginning of the session until you started to sweat. Schedule a session for 10-20 minutes every other day for the first two weeks until you reach the suggested time of 30minutes daily.

Relax and meditate

Enjoy every sauna session. Keep yourself away from any stress and meditate on positive thoughts.

Now that you have these tips, you are ready for your first sauna session! Enjoy your journey of self-care!
