Ozone Sauna FAQs
Ozone sauna sessions can be done as often as every 48-hours. This allows your body enough time to fully excrete toxins and replenish fluids between sessions.
The temperature for an Ozone Sauna session can range from 32˚C to 45˚C.
This range allows the molecules of ozone (03) to stay bonded. Anything lower or higher will turn the ozone back into oxygen (O2) and you will not get the benefits of ozone therapy.
While many people often associate the term sauna with sweating an being almost unbearably hot, this is not the goal with an Ozone Sauna. The steam is used to open your bodies pores so that the ozone can be better absorbed into your body. We recommend our Infrared Saunas if you wish to achieve higher heat levels.
Ozone sauna sessions are done for a maximum of 30-minutes. Anything longer can cause the body to become dehydrated. While this may seem short, it only takes 12-minutes in an ozone sauna to achieve the benefits.
- Eat 2-4 hours before your appointment. This will prevent nausea and lightheadedness.
- Drink plenty of water. A general rule of thumb is to double your regular water intake.
We highly recommend doing your session in the nude. However, if you are uncomfortable with this then you are able to wear 100% cotton underclothes that are dye free.
You should not shower after an ozone sauna appointment because the ozone continues to sit on your skin and be absorbed into your body. If you shower, you will remove the ozone from your skin. You should wait at least a few hours before showering, It is best to wait until the next day so you can reap the full benefits of the ozone.
While ozone therapy is a great tool to be used in helping to detoxify the body, increase blood flow, and even burn calories, it is still only a tool to be used to assist. There is not enough empirical evidence to support any theories that it can cure disease and ailments.
