Indulging in a rejuvenating routine that alternates between the Infrared Sauna with Salt therapy and the Cold Plunge can indeed offer a wonderful experience for mind and body. This contrast therapy can have various benefits, including improved circulation, detoxification, reduced inflammation, relaxation, and overall well-being.
Here’s an example of a possible session structure:
Start with about 15-20min in the Infrared Sauna to promote sweat and detoxification. While operating at temperatures lower than a traditional sauna–typically around 120-150°F (49-66°C)–the infrared heat will penetrates deep into the skin.
After your sauna session, proceed to the Cold Plunge and immerse yourself for 2-3 minutes. This rapid change in temperature helps to stimulate blood circulation, reduce inflammation, and invigorate your body.
Repeat steps 1 and 2.
Always pay attention to your body’s signals and avoid pushing yourself too hard, especially when transitioning between extreme temperatures.
Tips for a Complete Experience
Drink plenty of water before, during, and after your sessions to stay hydrated, especially due to the sweating in the sauna.
Practice deep, controlled breathing to help your body adapt to the temperature changes and enhance relaxation.
After each Cold Plunge, consider lightly massaging your skin to enhance circulation and reduce any initial discomfort from the cold.
Remember that this routine may not be suitable for everyone, particularly those with certain medical conditions. It’s a good idea to consult a healthcare professional before beginning any new wellness regimen, especially one involving extreme temperature changes.
