The Infrared Sauna Therapy Process

What to Expect?


When you come to Restore Wellness Center for infrared sauna therapy in Sudbury, MA, your provider will first consult with you about your treatment goals. If infrared sauna therapy seems appropriate for treatment, or as an addition to other treatments you may have, they'll schedule your sessions.

Your Infrared Sauna Therapy Treatment

Wear or bring loose-fitting, comfortable clothing. Infrared heat penetrates clothing easily, so wear something in which you can sweat. During your session, pay attention to yourself, and don't hesitate to end the session should you feel: • Lightheaded • A headache • Nausea • Dizziness And continue hydrating before, during, and after your session.

Next Steps

The after-experience from infrared sauna therapy varies person-to-person. Many people feel relaxed, more peaceful, and more centered after their session. Others sometimes come out more energetic. Most look pinkish/reddish—but not because of the heat! It's from the increased blood circulation in their skin. That glow much-sought-after youthful "glow" can last for the rest of the day.

Before receiving Infrared Sauna Therapy in Sudbury, MA, we recommend that you:
  • Drink water. Hydrate yourself before your infrared sauna therapy session, during it, and afterwards. You might invest in an insulated water bottle, so that your water stays cool during your session.
  • Avoid alcohol before your visit. Your body needs to be fully hydrated before your session, plus your other systems and organs need to be functioning unhindered.
  • Leave your phone outside. Part of the therapeutic benefits for your mood, includes “unplugging,” and just focusing on how your body feels.
  • Wear clothes that are comfortable, stretchy, and don’t restrict movement. You may be required to lie down and move easily in them.
  • Try not to eat just before infrared sauna therapy. Your body rushes rushes blood to your stomach and digestive tract when you eat. In a sauna, your body pushes blood to your skin. This sudden change can make people feel dizzy.
  • Stretch before your session.  Loosening up your muscles and ligaments helps the heat penetrate better, and helps your body relax more.
After Infrared Sauna Therapy in Sudbury, MA, we recommend the following:
  • Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Not only will this replenish liquids, it helps your body cool down, and process and eliminate toxins.
  • Cool down. After your therapy session, it’s best to take at least 5 to 10 minutes to cool down. Let your body get closer to its normal temperature before moving on with your day.
  • Take a shower. If you have had a longer session and have sweated a lot, you’ll want to shower off that sweat and its toxins. Because infrared sauna therapy draws more toxins out of your fat than traditional saunas, and you should wash that from your skin.
  • Use a moisturizer. The temperatures and drawing-out nature of infrared sauna therapy can dry your skin. Have a high-quality moisturizer ready after you’ve showered and washed your face.
  • You might wait before exercising. A longer infrared sauna therapy session truly relaxes your muscles, which is exactly opposite of exercise. So, should you want to exercise immediately after a sauna session. Otherwise, give your body and hour or two to adjust.
