The likely best way to answer this question is to work backwards from what you determine is your primary objective. If you are exposed to a lot of toxins, have a problem with high blood pressure, have Lyme disease, experience your general variety of aches and pains or you just want to regularly detox all of the environmental pollutants and heavy metals we so frequently come in contact with, then it’s safe to say Infrared Sauna is most definitely for you.
Lifestyle is a big factor as well in determining frequency needed per week. Do you move around regularly? How good is your diet? Do you have any kind of chronic lymphatic condition? Do you stay hydrated enough on a regular basis?
Here are some general guidelines by protocols:
General Detox: 2-3x/week for 4 weeks
Skin rejuvenation: 3x/week for 12 weeks
Pain and Inflammation: 2x/week for 6 weeks, then maintain weekly as needed
Weight loss: 3x/week for 8-12 weeks
Blood Pressure or heart: 2-3/week for 4 weeks
Cellular Health: 3x/week for 4-6 weeks
In general, maintenance protocols with infrared sauna therapy can be as little as once a week to even monthly, depending on your individual needs and general wellness preferences. With IR sauna therapy however, it is usually best to take a day between each session so you can give your body time to process the treatments. As with all recommendations health related, remember that we are all unique and different with respect to our health profiles.
