Infared Sauna Cabin FAQs

How is this different from a conventional sauna or steam sauna?

Down arrow

Those who have tried a dry and/or steam sauna understand the extreme temperature of the air you are subjected to through convection heat, often causing excessive water loss and dehydration. The hot air heats your skin temperature and only allows you to be safely heated for a few minutes.

Infrared technology heats your body from the inside out, penetrating up to 3 inches of the body’s tissue.  As your core is heated, the air around you is more breathable, your sweat is a deep, detoxifying fat sweat, and your sessions last longer! 

The sweat from a traditional sauna is 95% to 97% water with salt making up the rest. The sweat from an infrared sauna is 80% to 85% water with the rest being cholesterol, fat-soluble toxins, toxic heavy metals, sulfuric acid, sodium, ammonia and uric acid.

What is chromotherapy?

Down arrow

Chromotherapy is the science of using colors to adjust body vibrations to frequencies that result in health and harmony. Each color possesses frequencies of a specific vibration, and each vibration is related to different physical symptoms. Chromotherapy works on various energy points to help balance your body via the full spectrum of visible light, each color of which addresses a distinct need.

All of our saunas are equipped with customizable chromotherapy which includes 16 color choices. The lights are soft and gentle, and will be set for you by your sēk specialist.

How often should I use the infrared sauna?

Down arrow

Up to one daily session is safe, so it is ultimately up to you.

Think of infrared sauna therapy like a fitness regimen. The more often and consistent you use the therapy, the more significantly your body responds to each session.

If you have a specific health related concern, please consult with your physician before utilizing our services.

Should you require a health consultation to develop a utilization plan for your specific needs, you may book a 30 or 60 minute session with one of our sēk experts.

Should I moisturize before coming? Can I use lotions or oils in the sauna?

Down arrow

We recommend NOT using any skincare products on your body before using any of our services. During your sessions, you are trying to release toxins through your skin, so putting on topical products may interfere with this process.

Should I eat before going into the sauna?

Down arrow

It is recommended that you wait at least 1-2 hours after eating a full meal (a small snack is okay) before entering the sauna, and drink as much water as possible before your session. However, if you’ve eaten something, it’s not going to hurt you – your body will just be digesting and detoxing at the same time.

Is someone in the sauna room with me?

Down arrow

Nope, each sauna is in a private room. If you want someone in the sauna with you, our Infrared Sauna Cabin can be enjoyed with up to 2 additional guests.

How hot does it get?

Down arrow

Our saunas are 100% customizable, so that’s up to you!

Reaching up to 150-160 degrees, our pods and cabins have a "perfect" temperature for everyone. Because your body is heated from the core outward, the temperature does not really become noticeable or feel “too hot” until the last 10 minutes of your session.

I don’t tolerate heat well. Does that mean I can’t enjoy the infrared sauna?

Down arrow

Don’t worry, we can customize a temperature just for you. If the heat makes you nervous, let a sēk specialist know and we will set your sauna to a lower temperature.  If you need your temperature adjusted during your session, just press the call button and a sēk specialist will come and adjust the temperature.

For a more relaxing, meditative sauna experience, ask to be placed in a lower temperature setting. Rather than sweating too much, you will feel warm and cozy, falling into a wonderful nap while still reaping all the benefits of our amazing infrared technology.

How much will I sweat?

Down arrow

If it is your first time, you may not sweat at all or just very little. All that means is that your body takes a little longer to sweat. 

Our heat is customizable...some clients prefer not to sweat too much while others prefer their saunas extra hot so they sweat no matter what. 

Your core is the first thing to be heated, so it is perfectly normal not to sweat until the last 10 – 15 minutes of your session.

We strongly recommend several sessions within a week at the onset for you to feel the difference in your body and experience the benefits.

By your 2nd or 3rd session we promise you will get a detoxifying sweat!

What do I do if I get too hot?

Down arrow

Infrared Saunas heat the body, not the air. Simply open the pod or cabin door and hop out (you can get right back in after you cool down a bit).

What wavelengths of infrared do you use and what are the benefits?

Down arrow

The sauna pods use far infrared wavelengths to penetrate deep into the body, heating from the inside out.  The far infrared heats your core first, helping to float toxins, bacteria, and heavy metals to the surface where you will sweat them out of your skin. Far infrared penetrates fat tissue and increases your metabolic rate, reduces bloat, and burns extra calories! Far infrared also adds powerful cellular detox properties and helps with lymphatic cleansing.

The sauna cabins use far, mid and near infrared wavelengths.  Mid infrared penetrates where inflammation occurs and speeds up the healing process while near infrared rejuvenates skin and promotes healthy cellular turnover.

How long is a session?

Down arrow

A sauna pod session is 30 minutes long, and a cabin session is 40 minutes long. Sauna pod sessions are shorter, because the far infrared wavelengths in the pod are closer to the body, thus penetrating the body faster than in the cabin.

What do I wear?

Down arrow

You are in your own private room so we recommend wearing nothing! The whole purpose is for the body to absorb the infrared heat so you’ll get the most benefit by removing clothing that may inhibit the absorption.

Why am I still sweating after my session?

Down arrow

After your sauna session it can take up to an hour for your body to return to your regular body temperature. During this time, your body will continue to detox and burn calories.

What do I do after my session?

Down arrow

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Your body has just released heavy toxins and buildup, along with water. It is important to replace the water you lost. In addition, drinking water after your session will help flush out any leftover toxins that need to be released. You may feel hungry after your session – if you choose to grab a snack, we recommend eating as clean as possible.

Who should not use infrared saunas?

Down arrow

Pregnant women and individuals with pacemakers. If you have open wounds or are recovering from surgery, please wait until these areas are healed.

Infrared saunas increase the heart rate. People with cardiovascular diseases or underlying heart arrhythmia, such as atrial fibrillation, should talk with their doctor before using our saunas.

If you have a health-related concern, please consult with your physician before utilizing our saunas.
