Sweat
Enter the sauna & close the door behind you. Get comfortable. The optimal sauna experience occurs between 100° and 140°F for 30-45 minutes.
Listen to your body. If you need a break, open the door or step out. Use the inversion table or grab a cold tower. The more sweat you wipe from your body the more you sweat! When your time is up the heaters will turn off and a timer will sound.
Select music which can be played via radio provided or your own connected to external aux. You also have color therapy light options should you decide to leave the interior lights on during your sweat.
Don't be surprised if you don't sweat during the first few sessions. Sweating will increase with regular use, removing toxins, and leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
Post Sauna
Exit the sauna slowly, be careful not to trip! Cool down naturally or with a refreshing shower. Listen to your body. Be aware of excessive detoxifying. If you begin to feels symptoms such as nausea, fatigue, or flu like symptoms during your sauna session, discontinue use immediately. If these symptoms continue, consult your physician.
RELAX
Drink at least 24 oz. of water or electrolyte to rehydrate. Help yourself to complementary tea and water in the chill area. Feel free to schedule your next sauna session.

We recommend reading over the list of far infrared sauna advisements and contraindications prior to booking your sauna session. Please contact us directly if you have any further questions.
As with all medical and alternative medicine services, you may put yourself at risk if you use our far infrared sauna improperly. Far infrared saunas DO NOT cure any diseases. DO NOT attempt to self treat any disease with a far infrared sauna without direct supervision from a certified physician. If any of the items listed below apply to you, be certain to consult with your physician before using a far infrared sauna.
 
ADVISEMENTS & CONTRAINDICATIONS
Any of the below described contraindications will require you to use discretion for your own wellbeing. Severe medical conditions will require a note of authorization from your doctor prior to the use of the Infrared Sauna.
Medications – Diuretics, barbiturates and beta‐blockers may impair the body’s natural heat loss mechanisms. Anticholinergics such as amitryptaline may inhibit sweating and can predispose individuals to heat rash or to a lesser extent heat stroke. Some over‐the‐counter drugs, such as antihistamines, may also cause the body to be more prone to heat stroke.
Pregnancy/Breast Feeding – Pregnant women are not allowed in the sauna. If breast feeding, do not use the infrared sauna. A detoxification process will produce the expelled toxins into your breast milk.
Menstruation – Heating of the low back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily increase their menstrual flow.
Elderly – The body must be able to activate its natural cooling processes in order to maintain core body temperature. As we mature, our bodies naturally lose this capability. Guests over the age of 70 will be permitted for infrared sauna use, however, at a lower temperature.
Cardiovascular Conditions – Individuals with cardiovascular conditions or problems (hypertension/hypo tension), congestive heart failure, impaired coronary circulation or those who are taking medications which might affect blood pressure should exercise caution when exposed to prolonged heat. Heat stress increases cardiac output and blood flow in an effort to transfer internal body heat to the outside environment via the skin (perspiration) and respiratory system. This takes place primarily due to major changes in the heart rate, which has the potential to increase by thirty (30) beats per minute for each degree increase in core body temperature.
Alcohol/Alcohol Abuse – Contrary to popular believe, it is not advisable to attempt to “sweat out” a hangover. Alcohol intoxication decreases a person’s judgment; therefore, he/she may not realize when the body has a negative reaction to high heat. Alcohol also increases the heart rate, which may be further increased by heat stress. Guests who appear intoxicated or inform us of alcohol consumption prior to use of the sauna will forfeit their scheduled appointment and no refund or credit will be issued.
Chronic Conditions/Diseases Associated With Reduced Ability to Sweat or Perspire – Multiple Sclerosis, Central Nervous System Tumors and Diabetes with Neuropathy are conditions that are associated with impaired sweating.
Hemophiliacs/Individuals Prone to Bleeding – The use of infrared saunas should be avoided by anyone who is predisposed to bleeding.
Fever – An individual who has a fever should not use an infrared sauna until the fever subsides.
Insensitivity to Heat – An individual with insensitivity to heat should not use an infrared sauna.
Joint Injury – If you have a recent (acute) joint injury, it should not be heated for the first 48 hours after an injury or until the swollen symptoms subside. If you have a joint or joints that are chronically hot and swollen, these joints may respond poorly to vigorous heating of any kind.
Implants – Metal pins, rods, artificial joints or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared waves and thus are not heated by this system. Nevertheless, you should consult your physician prior to using an infrared sauna.
Pacemakers/Defibrillators – The magnets used to assemble infrared saunas can interrupt the pacing and inhibit the output of pacemakers. Please discuss with your doctor the possible risks this may case.
In the rare event that you experience pain and/or discomfort, immediately discontinue sauna use, and exit the sauna.
