Infrared light is part of the Sun’s invisible spectrum of light that has the ability to penetrate the human tissue. Infrared heat therapy uses these infrared light characteristics to heat the body directly rather than just the air.
The experience of an infrared sauna is similar to sunbathing, which gives you the radiant heat that is all your own. The infrared heat penetrates your skin, giving you that wonderful natural warmth.
Unlike sunbathing, infrared heat therapy is completely healthy and safe. You can relax in an infrared sauna and it will never cause your skin to burn.
Infrared saunas increase the body’s core temperature thus resulting in a much deeper, more detoxifying sweat from the cellular level of the skin where many toxins are housed.
Conventional hot rock/steam heat saunas heat the air with steam, which can often be unbearably hot and will cause you to only sweat at the surface of the tissue. Steam also makes the air difficult to breath.
An infrared sauna uses soothing dry infrared heat that is well ventilated and extremely comfortable and relaxing. Infrared heat therapy has also been proven to assist with weight loss, pain relief, improved circulation and skin rejuvenation.
A typical session is between 30 and 45 minutes, depending on which program you choose to run.
Detox-(3) 45-minute sessions a week.
Conditioning- (4) 45-minute sessions a month.
Maintenance-(1) 45-minute session a month.

WHY INFRARED SAUNA?
EXPERIENCE THE DEEPEST, MOST DETOXIFYING SWEAT OF YOUR LIFE
BEFORE YOUR SAUNA SESSION
Before the sauna, you should drink a full glass of water, or other hydrating drink, such as a non-sugary sports drink or coconut water.
DO NOT drink coffee, soda, juice overloaded with sugar or alcohol. Wait at least 1-2 hours after eating before beginning an
infrared sauna session.
We do have a private shower in our sauna suite so it’s good to take a quick shower to get dirt, dry skin, and any soap or lotion residue off your skin. If you’re going to wear clothes, wear loose-fitting clothes that breathe, like shorts and a tank top or even a bathing suit.
The beauty of our infrared Sauna is that you can gain the benefits of sweating at much lower temperatures. This is important if you have been unable to tolerate the heat of a traditional sauna for very long!
DURING YOUR SAUNA SESSION
We place layers of towels on the bench seat to absorb perspiration during your session. Infrared will penetrate clothing and towels. How long to stay in the sauna depends on several factors.
First, listen to your body and don’t over-do it.
If you’re new to using and Infrared Sauna,
keep in mind that you typically don’t start sweating until 20-30 minutes into the session. If you start feeling fait, claustrophobic,
or uncomfortable cut the session short
or open the sauna door for a bit.
As you get used to the sauna experience,
you will be able to tolerate longer sessions. After becoming acclimated to the infrared heat, users average 45-minute sessions.
AFTER YOUR SAUNA SESSION
After you’re done in the sauna, take a warm
to cool shower to remove sweat and toxins from your skin. A cold water rinse will close
up your pores quickly and leave your skin feeling incredibly and naturally smooth.
Please try to vacate the room within
10 to 15 minutes after your session has ended. We do have a Prep Room with brushes,
mirrors, and blow-dryers if you need a
little bit more time to get ready.
This allows us time to reset the rooms
for the next sauna sessions. If you are unable to exit the Infrared Sauna Suite in a timely manner and we cannot reset the room for the next guest, we will have to charge you
for the next sauna session.
As with all medical and alternative medicine services, you may put yourself at risk if you use our Infrared Saunas improperly. If any of the items listed below apply to you, be certain to consult with your physician before using our FAR Infrared Sauna. In all situations, hydration is a requirement for sauna use. Drinking advanced electrolyte replacement water is also recommended before, after and during sauna usage.
Individuals who are using prescription drugs should seek the advice of their personal physician or a pharmacist for possible changes in the drugs effect when the body is exposed to FAR Infrared waves or elevated body temperature. Diuretics, barbiturates and beta-blockers may impair the body’s natural heat loss mechanisms. Some over the counter drugs such as antihistamines may also cause the body to be more prone to heat stroke.
The core body temperature of children rises much faster than adults. This occurs due to a higher metabolic rate per body mass, limited circulatory adaptation to increased cardiac demands and the inability to regulate body temperature by sweating. Consult with the child’s Pediatrician before using the sauna.
The ability to maintain core body temperature decreases with age. This is primarily due to circulatory conditions and decreased sweat gland function. The body must be able to activate its natural cooling processes in order to maintain core body temperature.
Individuals with cardiovascular conditions or problems (hypertension / hypo tension), congestive heart failure, impaired coronary circulation or those who are taking medications, which might affect blood pressure, should exercise extreme caution when exposed to prolonged heat. Heat stress increases cardiac output, blood flow, in an effort to transfer internal body heat to the outside environment via the skin (perspiration) and respiratory system. This is primarily due to major changes in the heart rate, which has the potential to increase by 30 beats per minute for each elevated degree in core body temperature.
Contrary to popular belief, it is not advisable to attempt to “Sweat Out” a hangover. Alcohol intoxication decreases a person’s judgment; therefore they may not realize it when the body has a negative reaction to high heat. Alcohol also increases the heart rate, which may be further increased by heat stress. If you feel faint, nausea, and or discomfort, immediately discontinue sauna use.
Multiple Sclerosis, Central Nervous System Tumors and Diabetes with Neuropathy are conditions that are associated with impaired sweating.
HEMOPHILIACS AND/OR INDIVIDUALS PRONE TO BLEEDING
The use of our Infrared Sauna should be avoided by anyone who is predisposed to bleeding.
Pregnant women should consult a physician before using the sauna because fetal damage can occur with elevated core body temperature.
Heating of the low back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily increase their menstrual flow. Some women endure this process to gain the pain relief commonly associated with their cycle whereas others simply choose to avoid sauna use during their cycle
If you have a recent (acute) joint injury, refrain from any heat treatment for the first 48-72 hours after the initial injury, or until the hot and swollen symptoms subside. If you have a joint or joints that are chronically hot and swollen, these joints may respond poorly to vigorous heating of any kind. Vigorous heating is strictly contra-indicated in cases of enclosed infections such as dental, in joints or in any other tissues.
Metal pins, rods, artificial joints or any other surgical implants generally reflect FAR Infrared waves and thus are not heated by this system. Please consult your physician prior to using our infrared sauna. Certainly, the usage of an infrared sauna must be discontinued if you experience pain near any such implants. Silicone does absorb FAR Infrared energy. Implanted silicone or silicone prostheses for nose or ear replacement may be warmed by the FAR Infrared waves. Since silicone melts at over 200°C (392°F) and ours are only heated at 145, FAR Infrared Sauna usage should be fine. It is still advised that you check with your physician and possibly a representative from the implant manufacturer to confirm that using our sauna won’t affect your implants.
PACEMAKER AND/OR DEFIBRILLATOR
The magnets used to assemble our saunas can interrupt the pacing and inhibit the output of pacemakers, thus using our infrared sauna is not recommended. Please discuss with your doctor the possible risks this may cause.
*We expect you to inform us of any conditions for your own safety! If you are unsure if the infrared sauna is for you, check with your doctor. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone at any time.
