F A Q
There’s a lot of talk about how saunas help you lose weight, how is this done? How many calories can I expect to lose in one session?
Studies indicate that FIR heat produces a metabolic effect in the body similar to that of exercise, we cant predict how much weight you will lose, but with our sauna range this can average 300 -600 calories per session.

Definitely safe! The same type of heat has been used in hospitals for new born babies for over 30 years. Far Infrared is everywhere; it’s essential for our well-being and is easily absorbed into our bodies providing numerous health benefits.
Can it help relieve the pain I suffer from arthritis, especially from my knees?
The deep heat penetrates about 4 cms to bring immediate relief to muscle and joint pain. Increased circulation and oxygen supply promotes faster healing all your body.
What is sweat therapy all about?
Sweat is produced by glands in the deeper layer of the skin, the dermis. Sweat glands occur all over the body. Sweat is mainly water, but it also contains some salts. Its main function is to control body temperature. It does this by evaporating, which causes the surface of the skin to cool. When we apply infrared heat we sweat more, promoting therapeutic health benefits.

How important is the material used on the sauna?
One of the most important things to consider is the material used on the sauna. We use high quality non toxic plantation hemlock. Hemlock has a natural, safe and invigorating pythoncidere fragrance. Unlike other saunas made of cedar and redwood which contain Cedrene, a volatile oil based chemical, it’s used to give the wood the ability to withstand the wet conditions. The oil Cedrene has a viscous dirty wood odour and contains known irritants (Terpenes), inhaling and absorbing these gases is toxic. The Cedrene in the wood are lung irritants, and can produce gastrointestinal symptoms, aspiration and pulmonary toxicity, and other skin and health problems.
Is it easy to assemble?
Yes, one of the easiest saunas to assemble. We provide you with an easy to read manual. Installation time is around 40- 60 minutes for 2 people. Most of our saunas come delivered to you in kit form in 3 packs to make it easier to take with you if you ever decide to move house.

How can your sauna benefit me with my exercise routine, and my before and after work-outs?
Our Bosse saunas are definitely an investment in your fitness regime. Studies indicate that heat and sweat therapy produce a metabolic effect in the body similar to that of exercise.
