How long and How often should I sit in an Infrared Sauna?

HOW LONG SHOULD AN INFRARED SAUNA TAKE PLACE?

The duration of the infrared sauna sessions your body can tolerate will gradually increase as you become accustomed to the sauna experience. If you’re ill or you’re experiencing some other kind of health issue, you’ll need to be more careful with your infrared sauna sessions.
An average sauna session lasts around 30 minutes, but some people like to extend their sessions to 45 minutes or even an hour. However, no matter how acclimated you are to infrared sauna sessions or what kind of physical condition you’re in, you should never let your sessions last longer than 60 minutes.
Track your heart rate (it should never go higher than an additional 50% of your resting heart rate) and your body temperature, which should not rise more than 4 degrees Fahrenheit during your sessions.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD AN INFRARED SAUNA BE TAKEN?

If you have health issues, your body might only be able to tolerate one infrared sauna session a week. That’s fine if that’s the case. You can always try to increase the length of time you spend in the sauna and how many sessions you have per week, but make sure you try to build up the length and frequency of your sessions very gradually. If you decide to build up your tolerance this way, 3 or 4 sessions per week that last about 30 minutes each will provide the optimal overall benefits. It’s essential to pay attention to what your body tells you during your sessions.
