Sauna Etiquette, Dress & Tips, 

Dr. Donald Berry would you like you to recieve the most out of your sauna experience.

Sauna Etiquette.

  • Arrive to your appointment on time and allow for a possible 5 minute wait before your room is available. This is only to ensure the sauna temperature reaches it’s optimal temperature before you enter.

 

  • Hydrate before, during, after your sauna. Drink water 1–2 glasses of water or mineral infused water prior to your sauna. Hydrate too durning your sauna. If you are detoxing and are purchasing ASEA Supplment (which is used to naturally increase glutathione by 500% (and is an Antioxidant and Chealtor,) please take as directed. Please do not leave your empty bottles or pouches in the sauna.

 

  • If you practice dry brushing as part of your detox program, only do so over the towel and use a seperate towel to wipe your skin of perspiration and toxins. Do not leave your towel(s) in the sauna when you are finished with your sauna therapy session.

 

  • Please rinse before you sauna to rid your body of any excess oils, lotion, perfume, etc,.

 

  • Please refrain from applying oil, lotion or any other products to your skin prior to entering the sauna for your sweat session.

 

  • Please be mindful of where you place your jewelry and valuable when in your room so that you may avoid having them slip through the cracks in the saunas wood floors or in the sauna vents

 

  • Please place a towel over either the cushion or direct sauna bench before you sit down or recline for hygiene reasons.

 

  • Please maintain “indoor volume” speaking voices when in your sauna room.

 

  • Remember that a sauna is a sweat bath and you should only stay in as long as it feels comfortable. 

 

  • After your sauna you can relax and rest on the 'Cool Down' bench provided by Berry Chiropractic Center and drink something refreshing (juice) and eat light sauna snack. Please remember to take with you or dispose of all bottles or packages.

  •  

  • Dress only after sweating has completely stopped. Leave the Sauna clean and tidy.

 

  • Need to Know! Avoid overeating or drinking anything alcoholic before and during the sauna.

 

  • Berry Chiropractic Center has a 24 hour cancellation policy and may charge a % of the total amount of the session if you fail to cancel with in the 24 hour period. If you call to cancel within the 24 hour period we charge zero % of the total price of your services. Be considerate of other patients who need sauna therapy and please rememeber that the 24 hour cancellation policy is put in place to respect all who need the beneifts of the sauna. Thank you! Dr. Donald Berry DC~

 

Sauna Dress.

  • Since you will be receivng therapeutic sauna sessions at a Doctors Practice, modesty is a must.

 

  • Ladies: cotton breathable shorts and a loose fitting top, a halter top or sports running bra is fine.

 

  • Men: cotton breathable shorts and a loose tank top, or if preferred no top.

 

  • Both Ladies and Men: simply dressing in your casual running clothes, such as a cotton top and loose shorts are fine.

 

  • No footware is worn in the sauna. If you have any question regarding the dress protochol please contact Berry Chiropractic Center.

Sauna Tips.

  • The door/ceiling vent can be opened at any time to allow fresh air into the room.
     

  • Drink plenty of water before, during and after a session to replenish lost fluids from the body.
     

  • Taking a hot shower or bath before the sauna session will further accelerate perspiration. However, do dry off thoroughly before entering, for excessive water will stain or warp the wood. A shower later is refreshing.
     

  • To absorb perspiration and keep the sauna tidy, place a towel on the bench and floor of the sauna. Keep one towel handy to wipe out sweat from the body and remove toxins. 

 

  • Massage the affected areas to relieve sore and tense muscles, or perform the exercise that Dr. Berry recomened as part of your sauna therapy. Sauna therapy can increase range of motion due to the far infrared heat improving the extensibility of collagen tissue and increasingblood circulation, while decreasing joint stiffness and pain.

  • Do not eat at least an hour before your sauna session. It is better to go in a sauna with an empty stomach. Do not use the sauna immediately after the strenuous exercise.
     

  • At the first sign of cold or flu, increasing your sauna sessions may be beneficial in boosting your immune system and decreasing the reproductive rate of viruses.
     

  • Any area you want to achieve a deep heating should be moved close to the heaters.
     

  • After the session is over, do not immediately get out. Let the body sweat a little more. Then, take a warm shower and finish it off with a cold shower to cool off completely.
     

  • Consult your physician for the proper treatment or any other conditions.
