Infrared therapy is a relaxing experience that increases the benefits of other therapies by way of increasing the major healing mechanisms of the body. Heat is the mechanism by which the sauna delivers its benefits. The steam saunas commonly found in gyms and spas operate at a much higher temperature than infrared saunas, making them uncomfortable to sit in and enjoy for more than a few minutes and only heat the body from the outside in. Infrared saunas, however, operate at at a much lower temperature of 110-150F and use infrared wavelengths that penetrate the skin deeply to provide detoxification benefits.*
Infrared wavelengths in saunas produces up to 3 times more sweat and stimulates the deeper tissues and organs to release stored fat and toxins.
Infrared saunas help your body release a number of toxins, including heavy metals, like mercury and lead, and environmental chemicals, but the benefits don’t stop there. With infrared sauna technology, you can also lose weight, relax, relieve unwanted pain, increase your circulation, and purify your skin.*
With infrared sauna, you detoxify, get a workout without working out and walk out feeling euphoric, beautiful, and rejuvenated all at the same time. Sitting in an infrared sauna for 30 minutes produces the same amount of sweat as you would from a 6 mile run and 2-3 times more sweat than a steam sauna.*
Try it once and you’ll see why everyone is talking about it.
Let’s start with before you even step into the sauna and chat about the sauna prep. If you want to maximize your sauna session, we suggest beginning your treatment with dry skin brushing. This technique allows you to rev up your lymphatic system which puts it on alert that some high gear detox is about to happen. We suggest using a natural bristle brush to stimulate the largest organ of your body….your skin! Before you get into the sauna, you should dry-brush your skin from your feet up towards your heart, your hands up towards your heart, your chest out towards your armpits and your abdomen in a clock-wise direction. If you don’t have a dry skin brush, don’t worry, we have extras for sale in the clinic. Not sure exactly how to dry skin brush? No worries there either. We will show you how and send you home with a pamphlet so you can continue this daily practice before you shower. Consistency is key in maintaining good health.
Next, it is most beneficial to have a large glass of water before and during the sauna so as to avoid dehydration and boost metabolism. Our sauna room cooler now has lemon and cucumber infused water to boost hydration, as well as essential oil infused cold towels to drape across your neck and face post sweat-sesh. You will get into the sauna, which will be around 120-140 degrees where you can read, meditate, and just relax for 25 to 40 minutes. Afterwards, you will rinse off all those toxins you’ve just sweat out in the shower. Remember to continue to dry-brush your skin every day before your shower at home to stimulate the lymphatic system! Continue to drink water throughout the day to assist the body in its eliminatory processes.
Infrared treatments may be available at different levels: near, middle, and far.These different levels represent the different sizes in infrared wavelengths and refer to the intensity of the treatment. Most people find that:
What should I bring to my appointment?
We suggest bringing a bathing suit to wear inside the sauna (or other clothing you feel comfortable sweating in). For maximum effect we suggest wearing the least amount of layers in the sauna. Once your session is finished we will suggest taking a quick rinse off in our shower so as to not to reabsorb toxins from your skin that you’ve just sweat out. But no worries- we provide clean robes and towels for a full spa-like effect.
