Should I shower before or after my infrared sauna session?

If you want to increase perspiration to encourage weight loss and removal of toxins you should shower before an infrared sauna (a hot shower) as this can help to up your perspiration levels. Plus it also helps to open your pores and relax your muscles. But remember to dry completely off to sweat more quickly.

 

It is essential to shower after an infrared sauna session, and it is generally recommended to shower within 15-20 minutes after the session has ended. This helps to remove any sweat and impurities released from the body during the sauna session and it also helps to cool down the body. After an infrared sauna session, the water temperature from the shower should be lukewarm.

Here is an example of how you can plan your 30 minute infrared sauna session + shower

3 Min - Hydrate + Hot Vitamin C Shower

15 Min - Hydrate + Infrared Sauna

6 Min - Hydrate, Recover

3 Min - Dry Off, Change Clothes, Exit

What is the ideal sauna temperature?

We will have the Infrared Sauna set to 120 degrees Fahrenheit for your session. You can adjust to your liking. The maximum that our infrared sauna will reach is 135 degrees Fahrenheit.

What should I do before my appointment?

No heavy meals if you are doing the infrared sauna session. Light snacks are best. Other than that, remember to pack some dry clothes to change into after your session. (An onsite shower is required before the cold plunge even if you showered at home.)

What should I bring?

Bring yourself and a change of dry clothes to change into after your plunge. Feel free to also bring a dry towel or use one of our freshly laundered complimentary ones.
