What to expect
Please arrive promptly at your appointment time with your waiver completed. (You will be asked to sign a waiver the first time you sign up for our sauna.) We’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have before and while we’re walking you through your session.
We book in 30 minute blocks of time and you have the room for the time you booked. Please arrive on time or early. We try to accommodate as many of our clients as possible so we book the rooms back to back with enough time in between to clean and get things ready for the next client.
When you finish your sauna session, it is important to relax and cool down while your body continues to perspire. Because of this, we suggest waiting about 45 minutes before showering. We do provide a damp wash cloth, two towels, one to sit on in the sauna and the other to dry off the sweat. If you like we invite you to relax in our “chill” room with some complimentary water or tea before you head out. Or, if you like, you might also want to sign up for a float session right after the sauna.
Things to consider when taking a sauna
No skin lotions, perfumes, makeup, etc.
Other tip and things to note:
During your session you can achieve increased body flexibility, range of motion, and reduce chronic stiffness and problem areas. This can be accomplished by stretching your arms, legs, neck, back area, etc. Also you might want to massage congested and “knotty” muscle areas to help alleviate soreness, pain and tightness. This will help bring more oxygen to the damaged area around old injuries thereby assisting in bringing improved healing to old injuries.
Sometimes you will incur “healing reactions” such as headache, muscle pain, odors, and fatigue These are temporary symptoms associated with eliminating toxic substances, healing chronic infections or metabolic changes in the body which are important functions of all deep healing methods. These short lived “flare-ups” are generally mild and are positive sign that deep healing is occurring. If you are experiencing a healing reaction, drink water and lie down and rest until the symptoms reduce.
Not Sweating? Some people find they do not sweat a lot during their first 2-3 sauna sessions. This is normal if they don’t have a recent history of sweating. It often takes a few sessions to “retrain” the body/ lymph system to do what comes naturally. Over time, you will begin to sweat more quickly. However, our 3-in-1 sauna is designed to quickly raise your body temperature by 2 to 3 degrees to help in the sweating process. Also, if you have never used an infrared sauna before, you might want to start slowly and not complete the full program the first few times.
