The infrared sauna is used for up to 30 minutes and needs to be booked ahead of time to allow plenty of time for the unit to heat up.  The sauna is also equipped with light therapy that is often used for both medical and cosmetic purposes.

Why use the Infrared Sauna?

Heart Health

When the body is exposed to high temperatures the skin heats up, the core body temperature rises, blood vessels dilate, and the heart begins to work faster. This increased cardiac output is very good for your body as the muscles begin to work harder and strengthen. With regular use cardiac conditioning can be improved.

Detoxification
Sweating is a natural way to detoxify your body and skin and improves circulation.

Anti-aging and skin health

Sauna use improves capillary circulation and the sweating helps give your skin vital nutrients giving it is softer look and helps your skin work properly and efficiently. Sweat also fills in empty spaces in the skin, allowing it to look plumper. When your body begins to produce sweat, the skin gets cleansed as old skin cells are replaced. Allowing your skin to be working properly and looking good.

Muscle Growth and Injury Healing
Infrared heat penetrates into sore muscles and joints, increasing the flow of nutrients (glucose, amino acids, fatty acids, and oxygen) while removing lactic acid and other metabolic byproducts.

Mood and Sleep
While traditional saunas operate at high temperatures, infrared is a gentle, soothing and therapeutic heat that promotes relaxation and improved sleep. Infrared saunas help you relax with an invigorating deep-tissue sweat, leaving you fully refreshed.

Weight Loss
While you won’t achieve a six-pack with regular sauna use, you can still burn extra calories by utilizing them. This is because the sweating process itself requires a lot of energy.

Inflammation
Infrared sauna use increases blood flow, bringing healthy, oxygenated blood to areas in need. Inflammation reduction occurs due to Infrared heat penetrating joints, muscles, tissues and nerve endings, while also producing additional white blood cells.

Sleep
Infrared sauna users typically report a sense of relaxation along with better and deeper sleep.

 

What is an infrared Sauna?

Infrared saunas produce radiant heat rather than steam. This heat is absorbed by the surface of the skin. Because of the efficiency of the infrared sauna they aren’t as hot as traditional sauna and without the humidity are much more tolerable.
