Just as the name implies, it’s basically a sauna — ranging from 80°F – 160°F — that you wrap around your body to target all the nooks and crannies. Infrared sauna blankets are actually the most popular option on the market because they give the same results (bye-bye toxins!) at a lower temperature, making it more bearable for people who can’t handle the heat of a normal sauna. In turn, they place less stress on your body, making them more efficient.

What are the benefits of sauna blankets?

Similar to a regular sauna, sauna blankets help detoxify the body of unwanted chemicals and break up fatty tissue deposits. On the outside, you may notice reduced cellulite and weight loss. The real benefits, however, are inside your body such as muscle tension relief, lower blood pressure, less inflammation, headache relief, increased metabolism and a stronger immune system.

Who should and shouldn’t use it?

Athletes, especially, are a great candidate for sauna blankets. Or anyone else who hits the gym or workout classes regularly. If you are pregnant or have Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, Hemophilia, or skin disorders, please consult your doctor first.

Any tips for first-timers?

reat it like you would treat a hot yoga class: hydrate, hydrate and hydrate some more. To make the most out of your session, drink water before, during and after.

Top tip: Use a water bottle or tumbler with a straw so you can easily sip on your water while you have limited mobility in the blanket. Never eat right before cozying up in the blanket.

The frequency and time used is totally up to you: Most people recommend starting with a 15-minute session once a week before working up to a 45-minute session up to three times a week. For your first few sessions, wear cotton undergarments since it may take some time for your body to adjust to the high temperatures. Normally, however, it is not recommended that you wear clothes while wrapped in the blanket.
