HOW IS AN INFRARED SAUNA DIFFERENT THAN A TRADITIONAL SAUNA?

Heat

Traditional dry saunas use temperatures as high as 185 to 195 degrees F, which can overwhelm those who are more sensitive to the heat. Infrared saunas use a much milder temperature environment of between 130 to 145 degrees F. However, because the heat of infrared saunas penetrates the body’s tissues increasing the core body temperature, they are able to cause a more vigorous and detoxifying sweat at lower temperature.

Humidity

Infrared saunas do not use steam and rely fully on the heat from the infrared heaters for overall effects. Because infrared penetrates human tissue instead of heating the air around the skin’s surface, they are seven times more effective at detoxifying the body.

Technology

A traditional dry sauna uses a stove to heat the air. As the temperature of the air increases around you, the temperature of your body increases. Infrared saunas use infrared heaters to emit a specific wavelength of infrared light. Your skin absorbs this wavelength, causing your body’s temperature to rise. The sweat produced by a traditional sauna might have only 3% toxins, while infrared can produce sweat comprised of up to 20% toxins.

ARE THE SAUNAS PRIVATE?

ARE SAUNAS SANITARY?

Yes. Infrared light naturally eliminates the presence of viral, bacterial, and fungal toxins. Additionally, our staff cleans and sanitizes the saunas after each use.


DO YOU PROVIDE SHOWERS?

No. We recommend waiting about 15-30 minutes before showering to allow your body to continue to release toxins. However, we do provide a cool aromatherapy infused towel after your session so that you leave feeling clean and refreshed.
