I love my sauna. It's a peaceful place to relax and unwind, plus it has numerous health benefits. But if you're new to the world of home Sun Stream Infrared Saunas or just want to review some important safety tips, you've come to the right place! 

Here are some tips that will help ensure you stay safe while enjoying your sauna experience:

Temperature Control

Temperature is an important factor in sauna safety. If it's too hot, you can burn yourself, but if it's too cold, you may get a chill.

The recommended temperature range for saunas is between 150 and 180 degrees Fahrenheit (66-82 degrees Celsius). 

The ideal temperature will depend on your personal preference as well as any other factors such as humidity level and air circulation within the room where your sauna is located.

Monitoring Your Time 

It's not uncommon to feel hot and sweaty, but that doesn't mean you should stay in the sauna any longer than necessary. If you are beginning to feel lightheaded or nauseous, it's time to get out of there! 

If you start feeling dizzy or faint, leave immediately--and don't worry about burning yourself in your rush; it won't hurt as much as getting heat exhaustion would!

You should also pay attention to how long it takes for your body temperature and heart rate levels (which will increase) to return back down into their normal ranges after leaving the sauna. 

You want these things back down before going back inside again--otherwise, your risk of overheating increases exponentially each time this happens throughout an extended period of time spent inside one

Sauna Precautions for Health Conditions 

  • Those with heart disease, high blood pressure, respiratory problems, and diabetes should consult their doctor before using a sauna.
  • Do not stay in the sauna for more than 20 minutes at a time. If you feel dizzy or lightheaded after your session, get out immediately.
  • Avoid consuming alcohol before or during the use of your home sauna because it could cause you to feel faint when you are near heat sources like that an infrared sauna.

Sauna Etiquette

When you're in the sauna, it's important to stay focused on your own experience. Don't talk on the phone or engage in other distracting activities like reading a book or listening to music; these can make it difficult for others around you who may be trying to relax and enjoy their sauna time.

Similarly, don't eat or drink anything while using your home sauna. You might think that drinking water is good for you during a sauna session because of its cooling effect. 

Instead, try sipping some water before entering so that when you're ready for some hydration after getting out of there (which should be soon), you won't need as much liquid at once--and also won't disrupt anyone else's experience by slurping loudly!
