Why try an Infrared Sauna

An infrared sauna has a host of benefits that are different from your traditional sauna.


Regular infrared sauna sessions can help detoxify the body as it releases heavy metals as well as alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid and other organic and inorganic compounds.


Studies have been shown Infrared Saunas to impact the autonomic nervous system by putting the user in the parasympathetic (rest and digest) state, allowing the body to heal and restore itself


Use of an infrared sauna imparts a similar boost to the cardiovascular system as running. A 30-minute infrared sauna session can burn somewhere between 300–800 calories


The penetrating infrared wavelengths from infrared saunas raises the core body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. A fever is the body’s mechanism to strengthen and accelerate the immune response

When to do an Infrared Sauna

We recommend not sitting in any type of sauna prior to working out given that the sauna will dehydrate you and decrease your muscles ability to perform.


 The optimal time for a sauna session is post-workout which will permit for increased blood flow subsequently decreasing recovery time. 


Due to the increased melatonin production associated with Infrared Saunas, a session prior to bed would cause for a deeper sleep and allow for the user to spend more time in REM sleep.

what to expect

Most people may have tried a dry heat sauna where temperatures can range between 175-215 however an Infrared Sauna is perceptually much cooler and ranges between 120-150 degrees. 


Unlike a traditional sauna where users can only stay 15 minutes, Infrared Saunas due to their lower temperatures allow for the user to stay up to 60 minutes as long as probably hydrated.


Infrared Sauna temperature due to the lower temperature causes for the core temperature to rise before the skin temperature rises, this will delay the sweating process for the first 5-10 minutes. This is because Infrared saunas heat our bodies from the inside out unlike traditional saunas which will heat your skin rather than your core.


You will find the infrared sauna will be much more enjoyable and relaxing than a traditional sauna.
