Sauna Sessions: Part 1

By

Alex Tyson

You’ve got your sauna… now what? There are numerous sessions you can set up for your sauna to give you what you want out of it. You might use your sauna for relief from your Fibromyalgia whereas someone else might be after a detox. Ladies generally like their sauna at a lower temperature than men. Experiment and find what you like.

It’s really important to tune into your body when you’re using your sauna. Is it too hot? Are you dehydrated? Take the time to figure out exactly what’s best for your body and tailor your sessions towards it.

Below are some suggestions of sauna sessions for you to try. Remember, everyone is different so this is simply a guide.

Ultimate Detox

This is really what the far infrared sauna hype is about. We suggest you try this at least once! Turn your sauna on and set it between 45 to 55 degrees. This is where the heat is going to get down into the subcutaneous layer and pull those toxins out. You want to be in there for 30-45 minutes.

Whilst you’re waiting for your sauna to heat up, drink half a litre of filtered water and get hydrated. Avoid sculling it all just before you hop in. If you’re having a late night sauna and don’t feel like drinking a tonne of water, try some herbal (decaffeinated) tea instead. Being hydrated will not only mean your body copes with the heat, but will also mean you start to sweat quicker once in the sauna.

Once your session is over, pop into the shower and enjoy that feeling of vitality and wellness!

The Restless Dreamer

This one is great for those of you who struggle to get a good night’s sleep. What you want to do is to have a longer session than usual: 50-55 minutes. Set the temperature between 42-45 degrees.

Before you hop in, hydration is super important. Because you’re in there for longer, it’s particularly vital for you to get on top of this before your session. Make yourself a big mug of decaffeinated tea; there are lots of great pre-bed ones to choose from. This will warm you from the inside out and allow you to start sweating more quickly once in the sauna. For those of you with a Premium sauna, set your colour therapy to red. A lot of people tend to think this is an angry colour, but it’s actually incredibly relaxing. Red is one of the last colours that we see from the sun each day, and it works with our circadian rhythms and our pineal gland to signal to the brain that the sun’s going down and it’s time to rest. You know that night-time setting on your iPhone? Notice that the LED backing actually changes from blue to red.

Next, play some relaxing music. An easy way to find something is to YouTube “deep relaxation night-time meditation track” and see what it comes up with. Avoid any news or upbeat rhythm, this session is all about calming the body and lowering the senses. Let the day melt away and slip into bed ready for the best night’s sleep you’ve had in a long time.

Those are two great sessions to get you started. We have a few of these up our sleeve so stay tuned for part two with more sessions soon. If you’ve got any questions or would like to discuss a session tailored to you, get in contact with me: alex@ihealthsaunas.com.
