The infrared sauna warms and circulates your entire body due to the effective infrared light. The heat from the radiation penetrates deep below the skin surface and triggers many health-beneficial processes. Deep heat stimulates the muscles and organs, increases the internal body temperature and the body naturally sweats more. Healthy sweating flushes out harmful substances (cholesterol, heavy metals, poisonous substances), softens the skin, accelerates metabolism, improves blood circulation, increases immunity and relaxes muscles and removes joint stiffness. The infrared sauna is also popular with people who cannot stand the high temperature of a traditional sauna.
We recommend taking a shower and washing your body thoroughly with soap to remove any traces of deodorant or perfume that could irritate you while in the sauna. Wipe your skin dry to sweat faster and better in the sauna.
Entry to any sauna is possible only in a balneo sheet covering intimate parts of your body. Being in a sauna in a bathing suit is very harmful to health not only for yourself, but also for others in the sauna. Swimwear is made of synthetic man-made fibers, which are already released at 50 °C, and thus harmful substances enter the body not only through the respiratory tract, but also through the skin. In the same way, rubber crocs or flip flops are definitely not suitable footwear for the sauna. It is necessary to enter the sauna barefoot.
The balneo sheet has an important hygienic function and prevents the spread of various skin and other diseases. Therefore, after entering the sauna, place a balneo sheet or towel under each part of your body. Sit comfortably or lie down, but always on your sheet.
First, set an hourglass to estimate the time in the sauna. In the sauna, we recommend breathing slowly through the nose, then deepening the breath. Sit quietly, relax your whole body and enjoy the benefits of the warming infrared radiation. It is best to take a sitting position because the infrared emitters are mounted in a vertical position and thus cover the largest area of your body. The length of stay in the sauna is individual, but due to the lower air temperature compared to other saunas, it ranges from 20-30 minutes. Manage the time spent in the sauna according to your feelings. You must feel comfortable in the sauna, and if you stop feeling well, leave the sauna as soon as possible. Sweating occurs after about 15 minutes. Do not look directly into the infrared lamps.
Do not immediately cool your body with cold water, but let it cool down naturally for a while. Before entering the cooling pool (and always after leaving the sauna), please shower first to wash away all sweat. While showering, start with lukewarm water from the feet towards the heart. Cooling down after the sauna returns your body temperature back to normal values, which exercises the blood vessels and the entire blood circulation and strengthens the immunity. You may cool down in the shower, in the cooling pool, or use a bucket or ice. After cooling down, dry off and relax in the relaxation room.
Allow yourself to 10 to 15 minutes of rest after each sauna. Skipping the rest may excessively exhaust and overload the body.
Recommended time spent in the sauna is subjective to the individual. Listen to your body so it feels relaxing. If the heat is uncomfortable and you feel uneasy, it is better to leave the sauna. The recommended time in the infrared sauna is 20 to 30 minutes. Try to repeat the process of staying in the sauna, cooling down and resting for 3 times. The sauna process (warming up, cooling down, rest) in the infrared sauna is not repeated but is performed only once. After visiting the infrared sauna and the cooling process, take a shower with lukewarm water without soap, dry off and relax in the relaxation room.
