Remove the Impurities and Create that Radiant Glow You’ve Been Searching For

INFRARED SAUNA

Using an infrared sauna is one way to detoxify your body. During a session, your body creates an artificial fever which purges toxins and creates white blood cells to fight off bacteria and illness. Your skin cleanses as your pores open and release trapped dirt and oil.

Actual Testimonials

BENEFITS OF INFRARED SAUNAS

  • Improves the Immune System

    An infrared sauna’s deep heat raises your body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. As it works to combat the “fever,” your body’s immune system is strengthened. Combined with the elimination of toxins and wastes produced by the intense sweating, your overall health and resistance to disease is increased.

  • Increases Blood Circulation

    As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart works harder pumping blood at a greater rate to boost circulation, supplying the conditioning benefits of continuous exercise. Heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate increases while diastolic blood pressure drops, for improved overall cardiovascular fitness. Increased blood circulation has also been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, lesions and cuts. In addition, open wounds heal more quickly, reducing scarring.

  • Removes Toxins & Mineral Waste

    Increased blood circulation stimulates the sweat glands, releasing built-up toxins and waste. Daily sweating can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of an accumulation of potentially carcinogenic heavy metals (lead, mercury, zinc, nickel, cadmium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid, and cholesterol.

  • Relieves Pain

    The deep heat of the infrared sauna helps peripheral blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries. Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscles, so they recover faster. Muscles relax most readily when tissues are warm, for greater flexibility and range of motion.

  • Eases Joint Pain & Stiffness

    In Europe, radiant heat therapy is widely used to treat patients suffering from many forms of arthritis. In addition, it has been proven effective in the treatment of sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms, joint stiffness, and many other musculoskeletal ailments. Much of the stiffness, aches, and soreness that comes with aging is reduced or eliminated.

  • Reduces Stress & Fatigue

    Perhaps the most immediate relief the infrared sauna offers is simple relaxation, as it melts away the stresses and tension of urban life. Just a few minutes in the gentle warmth of the infrared sauna gives you an overall massaging effect, soothing jangled nerves and knotted muscles. You’ll feel rejuvenated and renewed, restored in both body and mind.

  • Enhanced Skin Tone

    The profuse sweating achieved after just a few minutes in the infrared sauna carries off deeply embedded impurities and dead skin cells, leaving the skin glowing and immaculately clean. Increased circulation draws your skin’s own natural nutrients to the surface. You’ll see improved tone, elasticity, texture, and fresh color.

  • Burns Calories & Controls Weight

    As you relax in the gentle heat of the infrared sauna, your body is actually hard at work producing sweat, pumping blood, and burning calories. According to a Journal of the American Medical Association report, in a single sauna session you may burn as many calories as you would rowing or jogging for 30 minutes. So you can lose weight, not just water.

FREQUENTLY ASK QUESTIONS

Why should I choose the Infrared Sauna over traditional saunas?

Traditional heaters such as hot rock or steam saunas warm the air. Infrared saunas heat the body from the inside out, making it a more gentle and pleasant experience. Infrared saunas operate at a lower temperature than traditional heaters; thus, there is less experience with shortness of breath or heat exhaustion. Infrared saunas are seven times more effective than traditional saunas. Infrared saunas produce sweat composed of 20% toxins versus only 3% in a traditional sauna.

An infrared sauna session will provide more wellness and healing to you. Your sauna is completely private to give you a relaxing and intimate experience.

What is Infrared?

Infrared light is a natural part of the sun’s spectrum. It can potentially penetrate human tissue using heat. It provides significant health benefits and is the basis of all Infrared Saunas. Infrared saunas offer a safe and all-natural experience. It is comparable to laying under the sun on a beautiful, relaxing day. This treatment is better because there are no UVA/UVB rays to damage your skin.

How does the Infrared Sauna work?

Infrared saunas will heat your body, not the air. The temperature inside the sauna does not dictate the benefit or quality of your sauna session. Keep this in mind when seeing and experiencing the ambient temperature inside the sauna.

In their book Beyond Antibiotics, Drs. Michael A. Schmidt et al. state the following: “Saunas are being used by some doctors to stimulate the release of toxins from the bodies of their patients. They have found that a lower temperature (105-125 F) sauna taken for a longer duration is most beneficial. These low temperatures stimulate a fat sweat, which eliminates toxins stored in fat, as opposed to the high temperature sauna, which encourages a water sweat.”

Please follow your doctor’s instructions if they recommend using a lower temperature (which is still beneficial).

What should I wear?

Some like to wear their bathing suits or undergarments when in the sauna. We recommend bringing loose, comfortable clothing to change into after your session.

What should I bring for my session?

We recommend loose fitting clothing or a bathing suit for your session. We provide towels in the room, but many clients also like to bring their own large beach towels. We suggest you bring a change of loose, comfortable clothing to change into after your session, shower shoes or flip flops, and a bottle of water.

How important is my water consumption?

You must have water before and after your sauna session. Take a bottle in the sauna with you if you wish, but the water will not stay cool in the sauna. We recommend that you sit your bottle right outside the sauna door so you have access if you need it.

How long should I remain in the sauna?

A sauna session should at least last 8 minutes. The positive healthy effects of a sauna session arise if the pores open and the blood vessels are dilated through the heat: Through the increased body temperature and the sweat production, the body is able to bring toxic substances from the inside to the outside, the metabolism and the purification get stimulated and the general state of health is improved. To achieve this process, the heat must influence the body for a longer time. Generally recommended is a time of 8 – 15 minutes, in order to strengthen the body but not overstrain it. The first session of sweating should take between 8 and 10 minutes, every further session should last 10 to 15 minutes.

For beginners, we recommend starting with10 minutes until you learn how your body reacts to the sauna sensation. Inhale and exhale through your mouth, taking deep breaths. Your lungs are working harder to expel toxins as your body temperature rises and demands more oxygen.

How long is my sauna session?

We book your sauna session for 45 minutes. Please arrive on time or early. We try to accommodate as many of our clients as possible, so we book the rooms back to back with enough time in between to clean and get things ready for the next client. Because of this we ask that you arrive 5 minutes prior to your appointment start time and make sure you vacate the room when your booked time has ended.

What do I do after my session?

Step out of the sauna and drink water to replace water lost through perspiration. Water also helps facilitate toxin removal through your digestive system. Do not drink too much water – more than a liter during a break session – in order to prevent dizziness from a full stomach.

When possible, take a cold shower. This helps to improve circulation in the capillaries and tightens muscles. Perspiration eventually evaporates, but taking a shower removes salty components and other debris on your skin.

Can anyone use the sauna?

If you have a medical condition, such as heart disease or pregnancy, talk to your doctor before using a sauna. Do not drink alcohol at any time before or during your sauna session. If you feel dizzy at any time in the sauna, step out and allow yourself to cool down naturally, without a cold shower.

  • We do not recommend the sauna for pregnant women.
  • Please no unsupervised children under the age of 16.
  • Please lock the door behind you in the sauna room.
