Infrared Sauna

Infrared Sauna

Chemical and heavy metal toxins are now pervasive in our lives and no one is without exposure, even before birth. Toxins damage DNA, lead to neurological problems, disrupt the functioning of hormones, impede the absorption of nutrients, damage energy metabolism, and can manifest as one or more of a long list of symptoms. These problems can strike even early in life, though when they afflict older people, are sometimes dismissed as a “natural” consequence of aging. We think none of these problems should be an accepted part of modern life.

No other solution comes close to correcting toxic exposure like the Thermal Life infrared sauna. It is recommended by the most health practitioners including some of the most respected and cutting edge experts in their fields. The infrared sauna offered at Back in Line are found worldwide in some of the most progressive clinics, as well as the homes of people who make health a priority. Every day you are adding to your internal toxic burden with further exposure—there is no better time to start changing that than today. Check out this site for a review on the benefits and science behind sauna therapy.


Infrared Sauna Protocol for Adults

As much as we love technology, the sauna may not be the best place for your phone or other electronic devices. The heat of the sauna can cause battery damage to your device, increase the core temperature, and many other things that can decrease the lifespan of your device. We recommend leaving electronic devices outside of the sauna and bringing in a book or magazine as a form of entertainment, or simply closing your eyes and relaxing for your session.

Water is encouraged. As you sit and sweat, you may start to feel the effects of the heat. Please bring water with (or grab a water bottle/cup that is provided) into the sauna and replenish those lost electrolytes. Food and all other types of beverages are not allowed in the sauna.

Wear clothes that you are comfortable sweating in. Either a t-shirt and shorts, leggings and a tank-top, etc. Dressing gowns are available if you aren’t able to come in clothes that you are comfortable sweating in. Street shoes are not allowed in the sauna. If you would like to have your feet covered, we recommend bringing a pair of flip flops to be worn only in the sauna and changing into other shoes when you exit.

The sauna will be set to 115˚ Fahrenheit to start, you may increase or decrease the temperature to your comfort level. Please do not increase the temperature above 135˚ Fahrenheit. There are no known health benefits of using the sauna above that temperature.

Since you will be sweating in the sauna, towels are highly encouraged. There are small towels provided for you to bring in with you to wipe your face and body as you start to sweat. Please use as many towels as needed. If you are using the sauna after using the plunge pool, please dry off and sit on the towel that is provided on the bench. The wood in the sauna is not treated and water stains will occur if not properly dried off and seated on a towel. Once you are done, please place all used towels in the laundry baskets provided.

You are allowed to use the sauna after you have gone into the plunge pool. However, once you go into the sauna, you are not allowed to go back into the plunge pool. This is Cold Plunge protocol for both sanitation and filtration purposes. We highly recommend – if you are doing both the plunge pool and the sauna in the same visit – to finish your plunge session, and then start your sauna session. If you go back into the pool after your sauna session, you will be held liable for any malfunctioning filters or contaminated water.

Infrared Sauna Protocol for Children

Start Low, Go Slow!

  • Children have a small body mass, and many of them may not sweat a lot. Therefore, it is extremely important to build your child’s heat acclimatization program very slowly so as not to stress their smaller, more sensitive, and still growing system.
  • Never force a sauna. Make it an enjoyable and pleasant time for them during their daily schedule.
  • You can use the sauna with the door open and still experience many of the benefits of detoxification. If they complain about feeling hot or get fidgety, trust their own innate body wisdom, and let them get out!
  • You may wish to sit in the sauna to model good behavior, even if your child moves into and out of the sauna over a 20-minute time period. Encourage other family members to use the sauna, as well—everyone will benefit from detoxification!
  • Think about setting up a DVD player in front of the window (outside the sauna), or bringing in wooden or fabric toys or books to play with during the sauna session.
  • Even if your child doesn’t sweat in the early stages of sauna use, he/she will still release toxins via stool, urine and hair.
  • Starting out, and especially for pre-pubescent children, use the sauna every other day, or at least 3 times per week.
  • Always enter the sauna at 95-98˚ F and warm up with the sauna. The sauna session begins when you enter the sauna at 95-98˚ F, so you may have to reset the timer in order to experience the entire 10-20 minute session.
  • What to wear? Clothing is very much encouraged—most children wear a t-shirt and shorts. Cloth or organic disposable diapers are fine, but we do not recommend regular disposable diapers.
  • Protect the wood! Sit on a pad of folded-up towels and put towels under everyone’s feet to prevent sweat (and toxins) from soaking into the woodwork. To avoid reabsorption of toxins, wipe off sweat with a third towel, and shower soon after sauna use.
  • Remineralization: Although not as severe as chelation, there can be mineral loss during the sweating portion of the sauna. Consider mineral replenishment via supplements or ionized water, & drink electrolytes during the sauna session (Pedialyte and Recharge are great options).
  • Please follow at least the first 3 sessions as written. From there, it is up to you (and your child) how best to progress.
  • How to progress? Some folks will increase temperature by 5˚ F from one session to the next; they will progress at a faster rate. Others will only increase temperature by 2˚ F from one session to the next; they will obviously progress at a slower rate. Progress at the rate that is comfortable for you and your child!
  • Don’t fret if the temperature sensor records a slightly higher temperature. The temperature that you set before turning the sauna on is the most important factor for ensuring that the proper infrared rays are emitted.
  • If you feel the urge to push the temperature higher, never go above 130˚ F. Blood pressure will begin to increase at temperatures higher than 140˚ F, and you will receive no increased benefit by using the infrared sauna at higher temperatures.

The following model is just that—a model for getting started

Using a sauna built with non-toxic wood is the 411 in learning proper detoxification. The High Tech Health Sauna Back In Line uses is made with Poplar wood.  Poplar is the most expensive wood to buy of all the woods that saunas are made from. We use poplar for one important reason: it is and always has been the wood of choice for health clinics world-wide. Even the most discriminating clinics, such as Dr. William Rae’s Environmental Health Center in Dallas, Texas only use saunas made from Poplar wood. Only Poplar has allowed some of the very sickest people to detoxify.

Lots of sauna companies claim their wood is hypoallergenic too, but this is not true. If the wood emits a strong odor, it will always cause a reaction in some people, even if not right away. The ultimate test of a hypoallergenic wood is whether people who suffer from chemical sensitivity, an affliction that leaves the sufferer intolerant of anything even mildly toxic, can use the sauna and tolerate the wood in their home. Not only do the chemically sensitive react strongly to Cedar, Spruce, Pine, or Fir in their home, but even those people who are not sick get tired of the constant odor. We have a sample cedar sauna built in 1997—as of 2011 it still emits a strong odor.

Our saunas were the only saunas mentioned in the book Detoxify or Die by environmental illness expert Sherry Rogers, MD. Since 2002 our saunas have been used by the sickest of people to detoxify clearly demonstrating their capability.

    • Elevated energy for performance
    • Pain relief

  • Highly-effective recovery tool after high intensity exercise, or endurance training—even short exposures to cold have shown positive outcomes for muscle power, perceived recovery, and decreased muscle soreness.

Cold Plunge Protocol for Adults

Please be showered and clean before entering the plunge pool. Just like any other public pool, there is a filter system however it can only filter out so much. Back in Line Front Desk staff reserves the right to deny you access to the plunge pool if you are unclean.

Unfortunately, we do not allow any submerging of your head while you are in the plunge pool. This falls into the category of product being built up on the hair that could potentially damage the plunge pool filter. If you do submerge your head, you would be held responsible for any malfunctioning filters that may arise after your visit.

All visitors must wear appropriate clothing while using the plunge pool at all times. Clothes must be clean and tidy as to promote good hygiene in the facility for other guests and members. Proper attire for the plunge room would include a bathing suit, shorts and tank top, leggings and t-shirt, etc. Once finished with your cold plunge, please change back into appropriate street clothing to check out at the front desk.

We provide towels for patients to use, however we kindly ask that they are to be used as intended and not used in a way that is unhygienic or can cross contaminate on equipment. Please limit usage to two towels per person per cold plunge session. If you are using the sauna after the plunge pool, towels must be used in the sauna to prevent excessive sweat on equipment or water damage from not properly drying off from the plunge. Once you are finished with your towel(s), please place them in the laundry baskets provided.

The pool has been pre-set to the recommended beginner temperature. A safe temperature range is between 39-60 degrees Fahrenheit. Please do not tamper with the temperature controls. If the water is too cold or not cold enough for you, please alert the Front Desk staff and they will adjust the temperature for you. If you tamper with the temperature or pool controls without office staff knowledge, that will result in the patient paying for any broken or malfunctioning equipment of the plunge pool after tampering.

Children are only permitted to be in the space under the direct supervision of a parent or guardian at all times. Parents are solely responsible for the safety of their child(ren) while in the hot/cold room.

No food or drinks of any kind are allowed in the plunge pool. If you would like to bring in water or a snack for after your session in the plunge pool, that is allowed. However, they must be consumed after your session is complete and you have exited the pool completely.

You are allowed to use the sauna after you have gone into the plunge pool. However, once you go into the sauna, you are not allowed to go back into the plunge pool. This is Cold Plunge protocol for both sanitation and filtration purposes. We highly recommend – if you are doing both the plunge pool and the sauna in the same visit – to finish your plunge session, and then start your sauna session. If you go back into the pool after your sauna session, you will be held liable for any malfunctioning filters or contaminated water. If you would like to have the sauna added onto your plunge session, please let office staff know when you are scheduling so we can ensure there is availability in that room for both.

You are allowed to use your phone or smart watch to track your time in the pool. If you would prefer to not use technology, there is a timer in the cold room for you to use. Located on the outside of the pool is a phone stand to attach your phone to for easy access while in the pool. Back in Line is not responsible for any technology that accidentally falls into the pool. If you are unsure if your smart watch is waterproof, please remove the watch or keep that arm out of the water to avoid damages.
