Hi Natasha! Thank you for your question. The optimal session time is anywhere between 30 and 45 minutes for an infrared sauna session. Anything longer than 45 minutes usually results in diminishing returns (i.e. less benefits). Since one of the main benefits of infrared sauna therapy is to detoxify through the sweating process, we have found that it takes around 20 minutes for most individuals to begin to release a considerable amount of sweat. So at 30 minutes, one would typically be sweating for approximately 10 minutes, and at 45 minutes, one would have been sweating for about 25 minutes.
Individuals suffering with poor circulation have found significant benefits from regular infrared sauna therapy sessions. As your body heats up, your circulatory system pumps higher volumes of blood throughout the body, therefore increasing blood flow to the extremities.
I hope this information helps! Please feel free to ask more questions you may have or visit our infrared sauna page on our website at http://www.inspiredlife.ca/services/infrared-sauna.
