Please consult with your physician, as this answer is usually yes, but may be no depending upon your
specific circumstances.

Is it ok to use the sauna while breastfeeding?

Even though infrared is completely safe, it is not recommended to use while pregnant. While pregnant,
the core body temperature is already elevated, and you could overheat.

Can I sauna while pregnant?

What do I wear?

To enable infrared to penetrate tissues as deep as possible, we recommend wearing as little as
possible. A cotton towel, gym shorts or swimsuit are perfect options. We offer bath towels during, and after your session.

Do I need a doctor’s note?

No. If you have health concerns, we recommend speaking with your doctor before your sauna session.

How often should I use the sauna?

One session will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. But similar to exercise, the more you do
it, the better the results. Recommended use is 3-4 times per week for 30-40 minutes.

Can I take my cell phone into the sauna?

Just as you would not leave your cell phone in your car on a hot day, we do not recommend taking
cells phones, Apple watches, or other electronics in the sauna. The electronics that are built into the
sauna are designed for a heated environment.

When will I start sweating?

Sweat levels are different for everyone. Don’t be surprised if you don’t sweat during the first few
sessions. Sweating will increase with regular use. Even if your body is not drenched in sweat, your body
is still detoxifying from harmful toxins. Also, be sure to drink plenty of water before your session. If you
are dehydrated, you will not sweat as much.

Are children allowed to use the sauna?

The core body temperature of children rises much faster than adults. When taking a sauna session with
a child, operate at a lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time. A general rule of
thumb is one minute inside your sauna per year of age for the child, but always accompanied by an
adult. And remember to keep you and your children hydrated, even if you don’t see them sweating.
