An Infrared Sauna utilizes light to create heat, which is absorbed more easily by the surface of the skin. By using the infrared panels instead of steam, you are able to experience a more intense sweat at a lower temperature. Infrared Sauna’s average between 120 and 140 degrees Farenheit compared to the steam sauna which is typically between 150 and 180 degrees. Infrared Sauna’s aim to raise your core body temperature without dramatically changing the temperature of the air around you (allowing for more comfort and tolerance).
An Infrared Sauna makes you sweat and increases your heart rate, mimicking similar effects of exercise.
Lower Blood Pressure
During a sauna session, your blood vessels are dilated, which reduces the volume of their inner lining, increasing circulation to promote healthy blood pressure. Regular use can potentially have positive long-term effects of lowering your overall blood pressure.
The heat of the sauna penetrates the joints, muscles, and tissues which increases blood circulation and flow of oxygen. This increase of circulation increases muscle recovery, muscle and tissue relaxation, flexibility and range of motion
The heat from the sauna helps blood vessels dilate, bringing relief to muscles and soft tissue. Increasing the blood circulation means that more blood is being cyled to our muscles, helping them to recover faster!
The heat also helps the muscle tissue to relax, reducing soreness and muscles spasms and also increasing our flexibility and range of motion.
Enhance Immune System
Using the sauna creates an artificial fever, which strengthens and accelerates our immune response.
Increased circulation can improve the tone, elasticity and texture of your skin. This can improve acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, lesions/cuts, reduce wrinkles, and improve firmness of the skin.
What to wear: light weight shirt/shorts, underwear, or a swimsuit! We don’t allow full nudity. There will be sweat towels available to use!
Before your appointment: DRINK WATER! And bring a bottle with you to stay hydrated while you sweat. There will also be a waiver for you to sign before you hop into the sauna.
After your appointment: Make sure to cool down, sitting outside of the sauna for a few minutes before moving to get dressed. Enjoy one of our beverages and/or snacks before getting dressed.
