Sauna FAQ's

How old do you need to be to sauna?

The sauna is accessible to anyone 18 years of age or older.

What do I need to bring with me to my session?

Wear comfortable clothing such as a bathing suit, tee shirt or tank top and shorts.  Please bring 2 towels to your session.  One to sit upon and the other to dry off with. 

Do I need to bring my own towel?

How do I prepare for my sauna session?

Make sure you drink at least 8oz of water prior to your sauna session to prepare your body for the increase of core body temperature. Electrolyte drinks can support replenishment and activated charcoal drinks can support detoxification of heavy metals from the body. 

Is the sauna in a private space?

Yes, the sauna is located in a private curtained nook in our wellness studio. 

How long should I sauna for?

If you have never used a sauna, we recommend starting at 30 minutes and increasing your time as you get used to the sessions.


Watch your time: You may adjust your session length in accordance to your body’s needs. If you are new to regular sauna therapy, it is important to ease into the experience by slowly introducing your body to infrared therapy. Gradually increase toward 40 minute daily sessions in the optimal temperature range.


Always listen to your body and make adjustments based on what it is telling you. The Sunlighten sauna experience should never be an uncomfortable one. If  you become uncomfortable for any reason, step out of the sauna and drink at least 8 ounces of water or an electrolyte drink. Stick with it for long-term benefits when you are ready to re-enter: Just as with new wellness routine, the sauna use takes time and consistency to see results.

Are there contraindications to infrared sauna use?
