Frequently Asked Questions
What do I wear?
To enable infrared to penetrate tissues as deep as possible, we recommend wearing as little as possible. A bamboo carbon body wrap, cotton towel, gym shorts or swimsuit are perfect options.
What should I bring?
Bring a water bottle and two towels. We do have towels to purchase and towels to rent, but we encourage you to bring your own! Relax while listening to your favorite music, podcast or meditation app using our Blue Tooth technology.
When will I start sweating?
Sweat levels differentiate between each individual. Don't be surprised if you don't sweat during the first few sessions. Sweating will increase with regular use. Even if your body is not drenched in sweat, your body is still detoxifying from harmful toxins. Also, be sure to drink plenty of water before your session. If you are dehydrated, you will not sweat as much.
