Creating the perfect Infrared Sauna session – HYPER WELLBEING

Before Your Infrared Sauna Session

Place towels down on the bench and floor of your sauna to protect the wood from sweat. Turn on the built-in entertainment system and connect your device via bluetooth to play your favourite music, audiobook or podcast. Adequately hydrate prior to your session.

When you’re in a sauna, the body’s core temperature rises, prompting the sweat glands to produce sweat as a mechanism to cool down. As you continue to sweat, you lose fluids, which can lead to dehydration if not adequately replenished.

Hydration is integral to the body’s detoxification processes. Water is essential for various biochemical reactions involved in metabolising and eliminating toxins from the body. Additionally, water supports liver function, aiding in the breakdown and removal of toxins from the body.

Drinking water before, during, and after sauna use helps replace lost fluids, supports kidney function, promotes the removal of metabolic waste products, and ensures optimal detoxification.

During Your Infrared Sauna Session

Breathing Techniques: Deepen relaxation and promote detoxification during your sauna session with techniques like square breath (Sama vritti) or alternate nostril breathing (Nadi Shodhana) to help calm the mind and oxygenate your body.

Essential Oils: Add a few drops of high-quality essential oils to your towels or a diffuser to create an aromatic ambiance during your session. Choose oils like lavender, eucalyptus, or peppermint for their soothing and invigorating properties, which can enhance relaxation and respiratory health.

Stretching: Incorporate gentle stretching or yoga poses into your sauna routine to enhance flexibility, release tension, and promote mindfulness.

Guided Meditation: You can find guided meditation tracks on Youtube and Spotify that range from 5 minutes to 1 hour in length. This is a great way to incorporate mindfulness and relaxation into your session.

Dry Brushing: Dry brushing is an Ayurvedic practice that stimulates the lymphatic system, exfoliating the skin, removing toxins, increasing circulation and energy. This is extremely complimentary to your sauna routine.

Reading: Bringing a book into the sauna is a great way to enjoy some peace and quiet, as well as making the time pass quickly. Reading can immerse you in a new reality, taking your mind off the heat and excessive sweating.
