How to Do an Ozone Sauna

by | Feb 4, 2021 | 27 comments

Ozone Sauna

In order to be able to do ozone saunas at home you need your own ozone equipment: an oxygen source, an ozone generator, and a sauna box which allows for the head to stick out. The sauna box can be either a foldable steam or infrared sauna tent, or a hard shell sauna.

By combining the two set-ups: the ozone generator and the sauna box you create an ozone sauna.

Ozone saunas administer ozone transdermally and can have a powerful systemic impact. Being able to perform ozone saunas at home gives you access to one of the most effective ozone treatments.

What equipment do you need for an ozone sauna?

ozone sauna equipment overview

Ozone saunas can be performed with any type of oxygen source or ozone generator. What you see on this page is just one possibility out of many.

Whatever setup you choose, it should consist of the following four parts:

  1. Oxygen source (oxygen concentrator) and external regulator
  2. Ozone generator
  3. Sauna tent with heater, chair, 3 pieces of silicone tubing, 4 male luer locks, towels
  4. Towels, mask, fan

    Hi Paola , i am about to do ozone sauna but i have some conderns that the O3 interacting with the material of the quit cheap steam sauna will thus creating toxic byproducts which will be harmfull to me. Whats ypur advice – ? Thanx

      Hi abdallah,

      this may be a valid concern, it’s not clear. What I know is that some of the saunas smell quite intensely of ozone when they are new but lose that smell completely after the first ozone sauna. This would point towards the ozone reducing the off-gassing. But if you are still concerned, then get a hard-shell ozone sauna.

    When you use the everflo oxygen concentrator i see the setting as 2 on the wps 100 ozone concentrator what do you set the dail at i see in the picture the external regulator will be turned all the way to 5

      Hi Romeo,

      On the oxygen concentrator the flow is set to 2 LPM.
      On the external low flow regulator it is set to 1/2 LPM.
      The WPS-100 is an ozone generator, not a concentrator and in the past I was setting the dial to the max, I think it was setting 3. I currently don’t recommend using this type of ozone generators.

      I hope this helps.

    Thanks for your response. I’m doing ozone suana for myself and my parents and later my sister. My mother has pretty bad blood pressure issues and I’m just starting us all on the lower dosage. Are there any issues you’ve seen with people with high blood pressure starting on it? And my sister has heart issues and had surgery and a pacemaker put in. Is there any issues with that that you’ve seen.

    I’m speaking to someone in my area also about it all and what to start with but she’s gone for a month and I thought I’d get anymore input that I can. I’ve just started doing ozone suana and I’m using your settings and setup guide. The person I’ve spoken to some here who also does ozone therapies suggested a somewhat higher dose I think to start with but I went with the lower one you suggested. But I may be somewhat confused with that. If you can set both the single generator dial and oxygen for 22mcg, and you can set both generators for around that output of gamma, how is that different using one vs both if they’re both set to output that same gamma level. I know the dual goes higher overall when using both but at lower settings is it the same with one vs two if they’re both set at the same gamma. I’m guessing not or it wouldn’t be used for that. I’ve got to be missing something somewhat obvious there.

      Hi Caleb,

      There is some conflicting information on saunas (ozone or not) and high blood pressure and heart disease. Saunas can lower blood pressure, but some say it can make it worse. So, it’s a bit confusing. I suggest that, if your mom wants to try the sauna regardless, to have her do it only for a short while, so 10 or 15 minutes with a low temperature and let her know that she can open the arm vents whenever she feels it’s too much. Same for your sister …

      I am confused though about the two generators you are talking about … ? I don’t know what you mean with “setting both”, both what? You set the flow on the oxygen regulator and then you set the ozone output on the ozone generator. Whatever generator you have, select the setting where you get 15 to 20 mcg/ml or thereabouts, at an oxygen flow of 1/2 LPM. That’s my recommendation. But you may see better results with other settings, so just experiment with it.

      I hope this helps.

    Hi, I was wondering does full body ozone wether in a full body ozone bag, or a steam sauna, or an infrared sauna, give you systemic benefits the way rectal insufflation does?

    In your consultations are you able to help establish what is a safe pace for people to be going according to their illness and level of illness?

    Reply
    • Paola Dziwetzki

      Hi Caleb,

      I believe that transdermal ozone applications like ozone sauna and ozone body bag can have an even stronger systemic effect than rectal insufflations.

      The right pace can be only established over time and by observing the person’s responses to the ozone treatments. I can give suggestions and express my opinion … but it is up to you (in communication with me) to be able to determine if it is the right pace or not …

    Hi Paola,

    I’ve been doing some research on ozone saunas, and found a source (https://www.drsozone.com/post/ozone-saunas-for-ozone-therapy) that says that ozone breaks down at temps higher than ~95 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Then, I found this on PubMed: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/22470237/ and https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/10541921/.

    I’m wondering if it would be better to take a very hot shower immediately before using the sauna, and then DON’T use the steamer in the sauna box, just the ozone. That would seem to address the concerns about ozone breaking down at higher temperatures, yet also get the pores open to hopefully absorb the ozone.

    Do you have any published evidence of the ozone sauna effectiveness? Just curious. Am planning to open a spa soon and want to be prepared with as much evidence as possible.

    Thanks!

    • Paola Dziwetzki

      Hi Elena,

      let me address this article from drsozone.com

      1. Yes, it is correct that ozone breaks down at high temperatures. It actually already starts breaking down at much lower temperatures than 95 F. That does not mean that all the ozone in the sauna vanishes instantly. Anyone who has ever done an ozone sauna will tell you that when opening up the ozone sauna after the session, there is so much ozone inside the box that one has to be careful not to breathe it in. So after 30 minutes of pumping in heat and ozone there is still plenty of ozone left over. During an ozone sauna there is never a lack of ozone due to heat. Feel free to test it out at a local ozone spa that offers ozone saunas.

      2. The author of the article says that there are no studies that show the effectiveness of ozone saunas – that is correct. Just like there is not a single study that shows the effectiveness of ear ozone insufflations or the systemic effect of vaginal insufflations. And yet drsozone.com promote both treatments and claim that vaginal insufflations are an effective systemic treatment. So why the double standard when it comes to ozone saunas? They also sell equipment to do an ozone treatment called “breathing ozonated olive oil”, yet there is also not a single study available on it.

      3. The article then goes on to make the most perplexing claim that I have already discussed with Micah and was left with the same sense of bewilderment. Namely that claim that some unofficial study was performed that showed that no ozone made it to the skin level. That unofficial study has never been described, so it is not clear how and what exactly was measured. It is also not clear to me what “skin level” is? How is this different form just the skin? I never received an explanation about that. And: How can it be that a human being can spend 30 minutes inside a box that is so filled with ozone that upon opening the box there is increased risk of accidentally breathing the gas in, and yet none of the ozone will make it onto the skin during that time? Please, somebody explain this mysterious situation to me.

      4. What you suggested with the shower is not necessary, since there is no such a concern with heat and ozone. There is still plenty of ozone left over inside the box, so there is nothing to fix. You may be also interested in the following anecdotes: https://thepowerofozone.com/testimonials/ozone-sauna-testimonials . I would love to hear the explanation for how it was possible for those people to achieve the results they achieved without the ozone making it to this obscure “skin level”?

      5. There is no published research on ozone saunas apart from the one by Prof. Bocci that you found, as far as I know. But as mentioned, this is true for most ozone treatments. It would be great if there was research, but given the abysmal state of corruption and incompetence in medical research, unfortunately published papers don’t necessarily mean much.

      6. You may also want to read this article https://www.drsozone.com/post/why-rectal-ozone-is-the-best-overall-ozone-therapy and compare it with the quoted paper by Prof. Bocci: https://thepowerofozone.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/MAH-vs-RI-vs-O3-saline-Bocci.pdf and you will understand that Prof. Bocci was actually arguing that rectal ozone insufflations are NOT a great systemic ozone treatment. Yet drsozone.com manage to twist the message of Prof. Bocci’s paper by 180 degrees by claiming that he was a great proponent of that treatment. This may be interesting to know when reading claims on the drsozone.com website …

      I hope this helps.

    I just wanted to pass along my experience with the ozone sauna. Last night was my first time using it, and one of the filters on my mask fell off shortly after I got into the sauna tent. Unfortunately, I didn’t realize it until I thought, “I sure am smelling a lot of ozone.” I then saw the filter on the floor outside the sauna tent, and in the time it took me to find the zippers and unzip myself, I’d inhaled quite a bit of ozone. So, my message to everyone reading this is to make sure the filters are securely in place on your mask! My lungs are not happy now…

    Also, I think that, ideally, a sauna is best done with the help of another person (who’s also wearing a mask), and have that person start the ozone generator AFTER you’re in the tent, and you’ve both ensured that the filters are securely in place on your mask, and your towel is securely wrapped around your neck.

    Although it’s certainly possible to do an ozone sauna by yourself, I think you can ensure safety more if another person is present to help (again, with their own mask).

      Hi Elena,

      thank you for sharing. Anti-ozone breathing protection is definitely super important.

    Hi Paola, why did you choose 22 mcg/ml? With 1/2 LPM and the O3 elite dual you could go to up to 33 mcg/ml. Wouldn’t that be more effective? Or can to much have negative effects?

    Reply
    • Paola Dziwetzki

      Hi Arthur,

      the higher the ozone concentration, the higher the risk of developing adverse reactions like the super itchy rash.
      More is not always better with ozone.
      But it’s up to you to find your “sweet spot”.

      They don’t give much specs on the ozone generator, but it’s a small unit attached to the bottom of it, vents facing toward inside of sauna, that has 2 modes: ozone & ion generation. Doesn’t seem to be a way of ‘concentrating’ the output, meaning it’s not just a output hole that you can attach a tube to or anything like that.

      Anyhow, appreciate the suggestions.

      Thanks Paola.

    Hi Paola, How would this work with a hard shell sauna?

    Reply
    • Paola Dziwetzki

      Hi Gail,

      not much different, only that the water pot is integrated into the sauna, and there is an ozone in port on the outside and a corresponding ozone out port on the inside of the sauna (with the Promolife model that ozone out port is under the seat.) So you need to connect the ozone out hose that goes from the ozone generator with that inlet on the outside of the sauna.

    Great info!! Appreciate the step by step picture.

    It seems like this can consume a lot of oxygen. I’m thinking about getting a bigger cylinder (80cu ft, about 3 foot tall) So that oxygen doesn’t run out too often. Do you see any concerns in this approach?

    Reply
    • Paola Dziwetzki

      Hi Moon,

      No, no concerns, apart that a 80 CF tank can be more unwieldy and heavier. But if you’re strong enough to handle that or if you have the right tools handy, then go for it!

    • Phillip

      Hello Paula, Do you think a different setup might work?…That would be taking ozonated oil and adding it to the steamer.

      Your thoughts?

    • Paola Dziwetzki

      Hi Phillip,

      I would not want to put oil into the steamer. This would mess up the inside of my sauna and turn it oily. Same with the steamer, presumably.
