Get The Maximum Benefit From Your Finnleo Infrared Sauna
Finnleo far Infrared saunas are a perfect way to bring relaxation into your life. Many people are accustomed to traditional saunas and how to use them for maximum health benefits. Infrared saunas are a newer way to take a sauna and most people are not familiar with how to use them for maximum effect. Here are some suggestions for using your infrared sauna to maximize your enjoyment and well-being. The many health benefits are detailed on other posts.
1. Infrared saunas should be turned on and allowed to heat to about 102 or 103 degrees before you enter the sauna room. Your body will heat up as the room temperature rises.
2. Laying a towel on your bench will help keep the sauna wood clean and free from staining.
3. Some users will take longer to sweat in an infrared sauna-don’t give up! Because infrared is designed to heat your body differently than a traditional sauna, you are in fact receiving the systemic benefits the minute you enter the infrared sauna.
4. If your body is not used to an infrared sauna environment, it may take 2-3 weeks for you to condition your body to sweat during an infrared session. Once you go through this initial “ramp up” period, you will find your body heating up more quickly and sweating toxins at a more rapid pace.
5. Remember-you are, in fact, in a sauna environment, even though there is no steam or extreme heat like a traditional sauna uses. Hydrating while in the sauna will help you detoxify, and allow you to remain in your infrared sauna longer. Sweating helps the body rid itself of excess sodium, drugs and some toxins, thereby reducing the workload of the liver. It also improves general circulation. The deeper penetration of an infrared sauna can cause you to sweat more than in a traditional sauna. Caution: If you have high blood pressure or heart problems check with your doctor before using.
6. A typical infrared therapy session can last up to 30 minutes.
7. Follow your sauna with a shower, rest and a glass of water.
To make the most out of your time in the sauna, you will need:
* At least half an hour of uninterrupted time, preferably an hour or more, so you have ample time to cool down and benefit fully from the relaxation effect;
* A large cotton towel to dry yourself;
* A loofah sponge or scrub brush to remove dead skin;
* Eucalyptus oil or other calming fragrance to scent the sauna.
* Plenty of cool, not cold water to drink.
Nice to have ready:
· A small towel to sit on;
· A moisturizing lotion for after the sauna;
· A big, Turkish cotton bathrobe to wear while cooling down.
