Infrared Sauna Benefits | What to expect from your sauna session


Experience the Incredible Benefits of Infrared Sauna Sessions: Discover What Awaits You. Here's what to expect.


Before stepping into the your infrared sauna, you set the ambiance by playing your favourite relaxing music. As you open the solid glass door and enter the inviting space, a gentle wave of warmth envelops your entire body, from head to toe.

You sit down, select your favourite music or podcast. Set the mood lighting and let the infrared sauna benefits begin! 

If your sauna it equipped with carbon heaters, they can take a while, even up to 45 minutes to heat up. The heaters of a full spectrum sauna heat up instantly. A full spectrum infrared sauna can reach 55 degrees in as little as 15 minutes. 


The heat is powerful yet comforting, creating a soothing sensation that instantly puts you at ease. With the temperature set at a comfortable 40-50 degrees Celsius, you find it easy to acclimatise to the heat and relax into the experience. 

It takes about 5 - 10 minutes for the first bead of sweat to appear and then minutes later you'll find that you're completely dripping in sweat from head to toe.

As you settle onto the smooth hemlock bench, you adjust the mood lighting to your preference. With a spectrum of seven colours to choose from, each with its unique effect, you select the one that resonates with your mood and desired benefits. The vibrant red hue promotes increased circulation and energy, while the calming blue fosters relaxation and mental clarity. Each colour bathes the sauna in a mesmerising glow, creating an atmosphere that complements and enhances your sauna experience.

Within minutes, you begin to feel a gentle warmth spreading through your body. Beads of sweat start to form, and a sense of cleansing takes over as you release toxins through your pores. The heat continues to rise gradually, reaching around 55 degrees Celsius, intensifying the therapeutic effects. You notice a profound sense of relaxation washing over you, melting away any stress or tension that you carried with you into the sauna. As the heat penetrates deeper into your muscles and joints, any aches and pains begin to dissolve, leaving you feeling rejuvenated and revitalised.


With the countdown timer showing ample time remaining in your 45-minute session, you have the option to embrace the increasing heat or adjust it to your preference. Perhaps you decide to raise the temperature a bit, amplifying the detoxification and the release of tension. Alternatively, you may choose to switch the mood lighting to a different color, exploring the unique benefits each hue offers. It's all about tailoring the experience to your needs and desires.


As the session draws to a close, the heat automatically subsides, signaling the end of your sauna journey. Stepping out, you reach for a soft towel and gently pat your skin, noticing its newfound smoothness and radiance. The session has not only purged impurities from within but has also invigorated your complexion, leaving it with a healthy glow and a refreshed appearance.


In the hours that follow, you can feel the lasting effects of the sauna session. Your muscles feel more relaxed, and any tension or stiffness has greatly diminished. Your mind feels clearer and calmer, as the sauna's warmth and tranquility have melted away the mental burdens of the day. The improved circulation and detoxification have also contributed to a general sense of well-being, promoting better sleep and a heightened overall state of relaxation.


It's important to note that experiences may vary, and individual results depend on various factors, including personal health conditions and preferences. As with any health-related activity, it's always recommended to consult with your healthcare provider before incorporating sauna sessions into your routine, particularly if you have any pre-existing medical conditions or concerns.


Indulging in the sauna experience offers a multitude of benefits for both the body and mind. From promoting relaxation and reducing muscle tension to detoxifying the skin and improving overall well-being, it's no wonder that saunas have become a cherished sanctuary for rejuvenation and self-care. So, take the time to immerse yourself in the soothing heat, embrace the tranquility, and let the sauna work its magic on your body and soul.
