FAQs

How often should I use the Sauna?

This is a matter of personal preference and it will depend on what you are trying to treat. The sauna can be used as little as once a week or as often as once a day (for short periods). The main issue is to avoid dehydration, something that can occur if you don’t maintain a high water intake. In most instances, using the sauna 2-3 times a week will produce optimum results.

Why am I not sweating yet?

Some people sweat more easily than others but in general, a lack of sweat is the result of two possibilities: The temperature may not be high enough for your particular metabolism and/or you may not have drunk enough water. It is very important to drink lots of water leading up to the sauna (to produce sweating) and after the sauna (to replenish lost fluids). If eight glasses of water is the minimum recommended amount for adults, double this when using a FIR sauna.

Can I use the sauna if I am ill?

Don’t use the sauna if you have an illness or infection of any kind. Anyone with a health condition of any kind should first check with their GP or health professional before using a FIR sauna.

How long should I stay in the sauna?

Once you have achieved the desired temperature, 30 minutes is usually an ample amount of time however if you wish to increase this further, the timer can be adjusted while the sauna is in use. It is far better to use the sauna 2-3 times a week for 30 minutes than to use it once a week for a longer amount of time. Once the timer has expired and the sauna has turned itself off, remain lying quietly for another 10 minutes or so while the body continues to sweat. It will still be detoxing.

What temperature should I set it to?

Again, this is a matter of personal preference. If you are new to FIR saunas, try 70°C or 75°C. Many people prefer it hotter than this and set it to 80°C or 85°C. You will need to test this out for yourself and see which temperature produces the best sweat. The sauna is capable of going as high as 90°C but most people would find this too hot. The Deluxe Model SUN-102 produces even more heat due to the germanium and tourmaline stones embedded inside the cover so start at lower temperatures and work your way up.
