    It is always important to maintain proper hydration levels during far infrared therapy. Dehydration will actually increase carbohydrate
    utilization and cause less fat to be burned for energy. We highly recommend drinking a minimum of 4 oz. of water prior to entering the sauna
    and a minimum of 8 oz. of water after sauna use.

    1. The use of drugs, medication or alcohol prior to or during the sauna session may lead to dizziness or unconsciousness.
    2. Please consult your physician if you are in doubt regarding your ability to use the far infrared sauna for health reasons.
    3. No one under the age of 18 is permitted in the far infrared sauna unless accompanied by a parent/guardian.(Signature required below)
    4. Discontinue the use of the sauna if you feel light-headed, dizzy or heat exhausted.
    5. Sauna sessions are limited to one visit/day.
    6. Hemophiliacs and persons that are inclined to hemorrhage should avoid infrared sauna usage or any type of heating that would generate vasodilation.
    7. Clients using any medications must consult a physician or pharmacist prior to use of the sauna.
    8. Pregnant women should consult their physician prior to use of the sauna. Excessive body temperatures have a potential for causing fetal damage during the early stages of pregnancy.
    9. If you have suffered a recent joint injury that is considered acute, it should not be heated for at least 48 hours or until swelling diminishes
    10. It is advised not to have a full stomach to avoid any ill feelings. A good rule of thumb is to not eat for about an hour prior to your sauna session.
    11. Detoxification can be sudden for some people. These effects may include dizziness, nausea and fatigue. Most people do not experience these symptoms.

    • Towels are provided for your comfort and sanitation. Use at least 2-3 towels. Sit on one towel folded over several times for added cushioning. Put another towel on the floor to absorb extra sweat. A third towel draped over the knees may aid you in comfort and is useful to towel off sweat.
    • Be sure to towel off excess sweat during your session to help the body perspire more freely.
    • To help relieve sore and tense muscles, massage the affected areas while in sauna to help heal faster.
    • To regulate the temperature inside the sauna during your session, open the roof vent.
    • If you feel the need for more cooling, simply leave the door open until the air around you feels comfortable enough. This experience should be calming, rejuvenating and wonderful!
    • Drink plenty of fluids prior to, during, and after your session.
    • Place towels in the laundry bins as you exit your suite.
    • Remove all footwear prior to entering the sauna.
    • Do not pour water on the heaters. Infrared saunas are intended to provide dry heat therapy.
    • We highly recommend showering soon after your sauna session, as you should remove the toxins from the surface of your skin. However, you will continue to sweat for about an hour if you choose to wait.
    • In an effort to maintain a peaceful, pleasant, and healthy environment for all our guests we respectfully request that all cell phones be turned on silent and conversations quieted before entering the suites.
