How Long Should You Sit In An Infrared Sauna?

How Long Should You Sit In An Infrared Sauna?

Sculptology is proud to reign as California’s number-one CoolSculpting provider. Still, we are equally pleased to offer heat therapy to men and women of the Bay Area via our luxury infrared sauna.  So many benefits come with using an infrared sauna, from detoxification to increased circulation and even the possibility of burning fat. We have a lot of people curious about the infrared heat therapy we offer, and one of the most common questions we get asked is, “How long should you sit in an infrared sauna?”

How Long Should You Sit In An Infrared Sauna?

First and foremost, if you’re new to infrared saunas, it’s best to spend no more than 10-15 minutes in the sauna to start and then work your way up as your body becomes more acclimated to the heat. This will give your body a steady and safe introduction to infrared heat therapy.

Next, it’s essential to consider why you’re using the infrared sauna. The time you should spend in Sculptology’s state-of-the-art sauna will depend on several factors, including pre-existing health conditions, age, level of experience, skin condition, hydration levels, and your overall goals of sauna usage.

Overall, suppose you’re fit, healthy, and hydrated and have worked up to longer sessions. In that case, you can enjoy a significantly longer time in our infrared sauna, as much as 35-45 minutes as long as you’re comfortable, which is another important point to consider. Infrared saunas can get pretty hot, so you’ll want to ensure you’re satisfied with the temperature before you commit to staying in for an extended period. Lastly, overall health can help determine how long you should sit in an infrared sauna. If you have any medical conditions that might be exacerbated by heat, you’ll want to talk to your doctor before beginning infrared heat therapy.

Sitting in an infrared sauna for too long can be counterproductive, as it can cause your body to become overheated – causing dehydration, dizziness, headaches, or sickness.

There is no reason to stay in an infrared sauna for too long anyway – once you start to sweat and have been inside for the recommended time, that’s all you need to reap the health benefits. The key is to find the sweet spot where you feel relaxed and comfortable but not so hot that you start to feel uncomfortable.

The magic begins once you start sweating, as your body soaks up the benefits. While an exact perfect amount of time is subjective, there’s a unique distinction between infrared and traditional saunas. Infrared saunas, like the one we offer at Sculptology, operate at lower temperatures than a traditional hot-air sauna. Therefore, your body can soak up the same health and psychological benefits without putting too much stress on its essential systems and putting the user into extreme discomfort.

On average, an infrared sauna operates at temperatures between 38-54 degrees C (100-129 F). Still, it is capable of even higher temperatures. At the same time, the human body needs only a slight increase above its operating temperature of 37 degrees C (98F) to trigger the sweat and cardiovascular response.
