FAQs

What is RECOVER?

RECOVER exists to promote recovery of your mind and body from stress and exertion. At its core, recovery helps you feel better faster; it supports blood flow, the elimination of metabolic waste (such as lactic acid), reduces soreness and helps prevent injury.

What are the hours of operation for Recover? 

Introductory Recover hours are 8am-9pm Monday through Friday, 8am-5pm on Saturday and Sunday. 

What is the difference between the dry sauna and the Infrared Sauna? 

Infrared saunas penetrate the skin and soft tissue – gently heating the body from the inside-out. On the other hand, a regular sauna uses heat to warm the air, which in turn, heats your body from the outside-in. An infrared sauna heats your body directly without warming the air around you which creates a detoxifying, relaxing sweat at a more comfortable temperature than a traditional sauna.  

How long should I stay in the Infrared Sauna? 

If you have never used an infrared sauna before, it is recommended to build your sessions up slowly and listen to your body. Start off with a 15-minute session and build up in 5–10-minute increments until you reach 30-45 minutes. Be sure to stay hydrated, and drink plenty of water before, during and after each session.  

What is the ideal Infrared Sauna temperature? 

Sauna temperatures range from 115-140F. Never turn the temperature gauge down, if you get too hot simply open the door and allow the cooler air to enter, this way the heaters remain on, and you are still getting the benefits of the infrared wavelengths.  

How often should I use the Infrared Saunas? 

You can gain great benefits from using the infrared saunas once or twice a week, but three to four times a week will produce the most benefits. You can use Infrared Saunas by booking an appointment or drop-in if available. 

How many people can fit in each sauna?

Suites 1, 3 and 4 feature the Sanctuary 2 Model, which is very spacious for one person but can accommodate two people who are comfortable sitting right next to each other. Suite 2 features the Sanctuary Retreat Model, which is very spacious for two people and is also ADA compliant.  

When booking two people for the same sauna suite, each member will need to pay a full session price. 

When should I use Compression boots and Cryolounge chairs? 

While you can enjoy using compression boots or CryoLounge before or after a workout, it is ideal to use them to help recover faster after a workout. Compression and CryoLounges help to reduce delayed onset muscle soreness, decrease swelling and stiffness and improve circulation. 

What should I wear for Compression and CryoLounge? 

Normal athletic wear when you use any of the features in the Recover lounge. We do request that you clean the Compression and CyroLounge equipment upon completion of your session with provided disinfectant wipes.  

What should I wear for a private Infared Sauna? 

To receive the maximum benefit from your infrared sauna session, you should wear provided towels or comfortable loose-fitting athletic clothing during and after the sauna session. 

Shoes are prohibited inside the sauna. 

What is a Vitamin C infused shower? 

Vitamin C infused showers reduce the chlorine in water by 99% and help rejuvenate your hair and skin after an Infrared Sauna session.  

Is the equipment cleaned/ disinfected? 

Yes, we disinfect the equipment before each use, we also ask Recover members to clean the equipment after their sessions.  

Can the Smartgoggles be used while wearing make-up? 

We do request you remove your make-up prior to using the Smartgoggles. However, if this is an inconvenience, you will need to place a tissue between your eyes and the goggles to prevent getting make-up on the Smartgoggles. 

Are these services offered at all Brick Bodies locations? 

No, for the time being the Recover lounge is only located at Brick Bodies Padonia.
