Best Practices & Recommendations Clearlight Infrared Sauna RejuvCryo Encinitas
The more you use the sauna, the more you will find your own personal preference as to how you like to use it. Remember, infrared heat is more effective at lower temperatures and the Clearlight Infrared Sauna® is designed to heat your body and not the sauna cabin air. Approximately 80% of the heat heats your body and 20% of the heat heats the air.
What To Expect During Your Sauna Session
1) When you first get into to your sauna you will start to perspire in the first few minutes from the warm cabin temperature and the infrared heating starting to your you body.
2) After about 10 minutes, the infrared heat has started to stimulate the various systems in your body and you will start to sweat profusely. Of course, this timing will vary from person to person and from day to day. Some people sweat more easily than others. For some people, it may take several sessions for the infrared heat to kick-start the sweating process.
3) The recommended session time is 20-35 minutes. Some people are in their sauna for longer or shorter sessions depending on their preference and overall health. Starting with shorter sessions and slowly increasing your session time may be recommended if you have conditions to warrant this.
Tips for Use
1. Opening the door periodically allows fresh air to enter the sauna.
2. Drink liquids prior to and after your session.
3. Towel off during your session. This will help the body prespire more freely.
4. To relieve sore and tight muscles massage these areas for faster healing and effectiveness
5. Oil and lotions tend to decrease perspiration by blocking pores. Apply these after your session for best results.
6. Some minerals can be lost in perspiration. Eating a sensible diet including fruits and green leafy vegetables will replace these. Supplements can also be taken to replenish minerals.
7. Limit food intake an hour before your sauna session. Your body will be able to detox more effectively because it will not be using that energy for digestion.
8. Taking a shower or bath before a sauna session tends to increase perspiration as bathing opens the pores.
9. Use at least 1-2 towels for maximum comfort.
Sit on one towel folded over several times for added cushioning.
Use another towel on the floor to absorb extra perspiration.
10. At the first sign of cold or flu, increasing your sauna sessions may be beneficial in boosting your immune system and decreasing the reproductive rate of the viruses. Consult your physician for the proper treatment for this, or any other condition.
11. As you become more heat conditioned, you may wish to increase the length of your Jacuzzi® sauna session to 35 minutes. This is especially useful for soft tissue therapy. (Make sure to drink fluids throughout your sauna session.)
12. If you notice any drying of your skin with ongoing use of your Jacuzzi® sauna or wish to maximize the detoxification benefits from your Sauna, it is suggested that you obtain the best quality oil available (i.e. expeller pressed oil such as Organic Canola Oil or Organic Coconut Oil are very good). Add 2-4 tablespoons a day to your diet. The essential oils in these products are needed for skin health and allow the body to let go of stored toxins, fat andcholesterol.
13. Unlike a traditional sauna, infrared heats the body directly. Air temperature in the sauna is not as important as the type and quality of the infrared being received. We recommend the following protocol:
Turn the sauna on for 10-15 minutes to allow the heaters to come up to optimal temperature and for the cabin to warm to a comfortable temperature.
When you enter the sauna, set the time to the desired session time and turn the thermostat up to 158 degrees. This will keep the heaters on the entire time to ensure that you are receiving constantinfrared heat. During a 30 minute sauna session, the air temperature will reach between 115- 125F.
Sit back and relax. Enjoy your sauna session.
Stay Well Hydrated. We put this in bold because it is essential to stay well hydrated in when using your sauna. It is estimated that 70% of people are dehydrated. When you are dehydrated, your body holds on to water and will not allow you to sweat very much. It is recommended to drink water before you get in the sauna and bring a quart of water into the sauna with you and drink it during your session. The general rule of thumb is that if you are thirsty after you exit your sauna you did not drink enough during your session.
Sit back and enjoy your sauna session. Since the key to infrared therapy is heating your body and raising your core body temperature you will find that you sweat more sitting up in the sauna with your back to the back wall heaters with the infrared heat on the back of your body. This positions you in such a way that the front wall heaters will be heating the front of your body.
