Warm up, detoxify, relax, and improve your overall health and well-being in our new infrared sauna
Unlike traditional saunas that operate in the 150-180°F range to heat the air around you, infrared saunas operate in the 120-140°F range and directly warm your body. Users who find traditional saunas too uncomfortable may find the infrared sauna experience much more pleasant, while getting the same benefits. The heat penetrates more deeply than warmed air, allowing users to sweat intensely at a lower temperature.
Benefits of Infrared Sauna Use
While everyone’s experience is different, here are some of the benefits of you may experience:
· Improved sleep quality

While infrared sauna use has many benefits, there are some precautions users should take: Do not use the sauna if you’re pregnant. To avoid dehydration, overheating, and interference with medications, stay well-hydrated while using the sauna, and stop out of the sauna if you feel light-headed or uncomfortable. Consult your physician before using the sauna if you have any health concerns that need to be addressed.
First time sauna user? Here are the basics:
· Drink plenty of water before, during, and after your session.
· Start with a 10-15 minute session with a lower temperature (100-110°F, for example). As you learn your own heat tolerance, work up to 20-30 minutes and a higher temperature that is right for you.
· Wear loose, light, comfortable clothing, a bathing suit, or nothing at all. It’s up to you. We have towels for you to use in the sauna and to wipe afterwards.
· While in the sauna, relax, meditate, listen to music, or read a book. Don’t sleep or engage in strenuous activity.
· When your session is over, take your time standing up and getting moving. Give yourself time to cool back down. Drink plenty of water. You may want to shower or bathe after your sauna to remove excess sweat.
· When you become used to sauna sessions, 3-4 sessions per week are recommended.
