SAUNA TIPS FOR USE

Drink plenty of water before your session.

Limit food intake an hour before your sauna session. Your body will be able to detox more effectively because it will not be using that energy for digestion.

Opening the door will allow fresh air to enter the sauna and drop the temperature quickly.

Towel off during your session. This will help the body perspire more freely.

Use at least 3 towels for maximum comfort.  Sit on one towel folded several times for added cushioningUse another towel on the floor to absorb extra perspiration.

To relieve sore and tight muscles, stretch and massage these areas for faster healing and effectiveness.

Oil and lotion decrease perspiration by blocking pores. Apply these after your session for best results.

Drink liquids after your session.

Don’t wear makeup or perfume to a sauna session, lotions and creams will block the pores.

Start off your introductory session with a shorter time period at a lower temperature to see how your body and skin will respond. You may be red or pink faced for a period after spending time in the sauna so best to start at a lower temperature and it’s not a competition to see how hot you can get!

Chromotherapy

Colour light therapy can benefit your well being. Chromotherapy of Colour Light Therapy is the science that uses seven colours of the light spectrum. The seven colours have the ability to affect the vibrations of the body various frequencies. For optimal health, we all need the light of the sun. We receive light from the sun which is divided into 7 main groups of rays which are absorbed by our bodies.

Chromotherapy works on various energy points to help balance your body using the full spectrum of visible light. Colour and light have been utilised by healers for thousands of years. Colour therapy possibly has roots in Ayurveda, ancient Egyptian culture and traditional Chinese healing.

Alternative medicine practitioners who use chromotherapy often relate the seven colours of the colour spectrum to specific body areas. Colour has a profound effect on us on all levels, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

The colours available in the Chromotherapy light have been selected based on their wavelength.

Here is some insight into specific attributes of individual colours used in chromotherapy as described by Christa John (published 2018).

RED
Red relieves muscle soreness, reduces muscle stiffness, increases libido, increases blood circulation, activates metabolism, relieves arthritis pain, fights against illnesses such as cold, flu, and pneumonia, and builds collagen. Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body. It is the major component of connective tissues that make up several body parts, including tendons, ligaments, skin and muscles. Collagen has many important functions, including providing your skin with structure and strengthening your bones.Red light is a powerful colour, symbolic for the root chakra located at the base of the spine. The root chakra is the body's most primal energy centre. It governs our instincts, how we survive in this world and how to stay alive—our animal characteristics. Red activates your physical senses, taste, smell, sound, touch, and vision. Red light has the lowest energy, frequency, vibration and the longest wavelength of all the visible light. It is known as the “The Great Energiser.” It is a colour that assists in the physicality of things.It's also known as a “Pain Reliever.” Red has been proven to penetrate the body's muscles, releasing stiffness, soreness, and tension. Red also assists with injuries such as pulled muscles, sprains, fractures, and broken bones. For instance, athletes or people who undergo a lot of physical endurance may end up feeling pain in their bodies. Red goes beyond the surface of the skin and to the core of where the pain is coming from. Red activates more blood flow to pump throughout the body, producing more nutrients such as oxygen. More blood flow and more oxygen allows your body to start healing itself.

STRONG GREEN

Therefore, green light allows us to feel connected to the earth.Green helps relax the muscles, nerves and thoughts. It relieves headaches, and on a bigger scale, relieves cancer symptoms. It gives the mind and body a sense of renewal, clarity, and peace. Green decreases and stabilises blood pressure and helps with ulcers.

Forgiveness and understanding follow, helping us reach a state of neutrality—being able to smile when life gets hard and knowing to love yourself unconditionally. Green is in the middle of the colour spectrum. It carries both physical and spiritual healing benefits. Green can be used for just about any condition. Whether it is sore muscles, cancer, or healing a broken heart, its frequency is what your body needs in that moment.

It’s the blue rays that bring peace to the mind while clearing away worried thoughts and troublesome life experiences. For those who have insomnia, blue light is able to relax the body and put the mind to sleep.One study says,"The blue light found to be successful in the treatment of neonatal jaundice has also been shown to be effective in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, as emphasised by Pleasanton in his work. In studies by McDonald, most of those exposed to blue light for variable periods of up to 15 min experienced a significant degree of pain relief. It was concluded that the pain reduction was directly related both to the blue light and to the length of exposure to it. Blue light is also used in healing injured tissue and preventing scar tissue, as well as for burns and lung conditions "
