Frequently asked questions
WHEN SHOULD I AVOID USING AN INFRARED SAUNA? OR CONSIDER A SHORTER SESSION?
If you have any concerns it is always best to check with your physician prior to using an infrared sauna.
If you have a sprain, bruising, laceration or surgery, the affected area(s) should not be heated for the first 48 hours after an injury OR until the swelling has reduced.
Circulatory conditions/bleeding disorders
Prescription drug use
*Remember to stay hydrated! Drink adequate water before and after your infrared sauna session.
*If at any point you feel too warm just open the door, or step out if you have to! With the door slightly open you get the benefit of some fresh air while still enjoying the benefits of the infrared sauna.
WHAT IF I MISS MY INFRARED SAUNA SESSION?
3 Leaf Wellness Centre reserves the right to mark a missed infrared sauna session as redeemed on any infrared sauna package.
(including Groupon packages)
The reason for this is:
In order to have the infrared sauna at the correct temperature we pre-heat it for 40 minutes prior to your session. We do this to provide you the best experience possible and allow you to have the full benefit of the heat for your entire session. Therefore, by the time a potentially late client turns into a client we know is not arriving and we turn off the sauna it has been running for an hour and using electricity.
When you miss an appointment without notice we are unable to fill your space with another client looking to get in for a session. With one sauna room we often have a wait list of appointments (especially on evening and weekends). These clients would love the opportunity to get an appointment, and with notice we are more likely to be able to fulfill those requests.
We recognize that there may be unforeseen circumstances that are out of your control; therefore we may make an exception to the above policies on those rare occasions.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO MY SESSION?
In your private room, we provide a towel and water. We do recommended you also bring your own water bottle so you can continue to hydrate after your session.
We recommend avoiding the use of your cellphone in the sauna, so you may choose to bring a book or magazine with you.
You get the most benefit from the infrared sauna by using it undressed, however you can also choose to wrap in a provided towel, or bring a swimsuit to wear.
DO YOU HAVE SHOWER FACILITIES?
No, we do not have showers.
