Infrared Sauna Therapy
Infrared saunas are a powerful tool for healing through their ability to penetrate human tissue and promote detoxification from deep within. If you have worked with me, you know I am a huge fan of detox! “Pee, poop, sweat, and breath” is a common phrase I preach to emphasize the areas of detox that can be extremely effective.
Infrared saunas help mobilize toxins that accumulate throughout the years deep within tissue so your body can eliminate them.
GrassRoots Fucntional Medicine offers infrared sauna sessions at our New Hampshire clinic for patients and non-patients! Contact us to book your session!
What to expect in your infrared sauna sessions
PRE SAUNA SESSION:
Hydrate with at least 8 oz. of water immediately before your session to prepare your body for an increase in core temperature.
Begin your session once the sauna reaches 100°F.
The optimal sauna experience occurs between 100 and 130°F. To get your body accustomed to infrared therapy, start with 10-15 minute sessions and gradually increase to 30 minute daily sessions in the optimal temperature range.
Don’t be surprised if you don’t sweat during the first few sessions. Sweating will increase with regular use, removing toxins and leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
POST SAUNA SESSION:
Drink at least 24 oz. of water to rehydrate. Mineral replacement is also important to consider when utilizing an infrared sauna. I like adding 1/2 tsp. of pink Himalayan salt to my water 1-2 times a day for added electrolytes and minerals!
