Infra Red Sauna

Infra Red SaunaA traditional sauna heats your body from the air and the hot surfaces in the sauna room.  By comparison, an infrared sauna uses infrared heaters to emit infrared light which is absorbed by the surface of the skin, heating your body directly.  Unlike traditional saunas which operate at extremely harsh temperatures, infrared is a gentle, soothing and therapeutic heat that promotes relaxation whilst inducing an invigorating deep tissue sweat.  The effect leaves you fully refreshed after each session. 

Because it operates at lower temperatures than a regular sauna, infrared sauna therapy is accessible to people who can't tolerate the heat of a conventional sauna and is safe to use for much longer periods of time, yielding significantly greater health benefits:


Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal & stay healthy. Infrared sauna benefits the body by heating it directly causing a rise in core temperature resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside. 

Lower Blood Pressure

Infrared saunas induce a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and helps circulation. Scientific evidence shows the infrared sauna benefits using an infrared sauna a couple times a week lowers blood pressure. 

Cell Health

Infrared therapy stimulates the circulatory system and more fully oxygenates the body’s cells. Better blood circulation means more toxins flow from the cellular level to the skin’s surface to improve cell health, aid in muscle recovery and strengthen the immune system. 

Weight Loss

Studies have shown that benefits of an infrared sauna session can burn upwards of 600 calories while you relax! As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories. 

Pain Relief

Infrared heat penetrates tissues, joints, and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia. Pain management professionals incorporate infrared heat therapy into treatment plans to decrease pain and muscle spasms and to speed up recovery time. 

Wound Healing

Scientific research has concluded that infrared therapy greatly enhances the skin’s healing process by promoting faster cell regeneration and human tissue growth. Human cell growth increases to repair wounds and prevents infection.
