Infrared saunas omit infrared light waves that create heat in the body, raising the core temperature, which results in a detoxifying deep organ sweat at a cellular level. This deep sweat will release stored toxins and strengthen the body ’s immune system allowing us to better digest nutrients in our food. It has also shown to be helpful in increasing muscle strength, range of motion and energy level as well as helping to balance the body ’s PH. Clients may also see benefits relative to thyroid function, diabetes, heart function and metabolic processes.

How safe is infrared heat?
Infrared heat is a naturally occurring output of the sun but it does not contain the harmful UV rays so there is no risk of burning, making it completely safe. Some individuals should take precaution is using an infrared sauna such as children, the elderly or those currently pregnant. If you have any concerns regarding your personal use of the sauna we recommend checking with your physician before scheduling your appointment.
What is the difference between infrared and traditional saunas?
Traditional saunas heat the air in excess of 200 degrees which can make the experience uncomfortably hot for the user. Infrared heat is very gentle and works at a much more comfortable operating temperature of 100-150 degrees Fahrenheit. This type of heat penetrates human tissue and heats from the inside making infrared saunas seven times more effective at detoxifying the body than traditional saunas. By raising the body ’s core temperature, infrared saunas can produce sweat composed of 20% toxins versus the 3% produced by traditional saunas.
What can I expect after my sauna session?
After your sauna treatment your body will continue to sweat out toxins for 30 minutes following your session. We recommend that you allow yourself time to begin naturally cooling down before taking a lukewarm shower. As your pores will remain open for some time following your sauna treatment your body will be more susceptible to any toxins in the water, allowing them to tighten before showering reduces your exposure.
The sauna typically gets to around 130 degrees Fahrenheit and although you may not sweat as much as you expect you should stay well hydrated and make sure to replace electrolytes.
