What is it?   

A personalized sauna experience utilizing infrared technology. Infrared (experienced as heat) is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum and is beneficial to your overall health. The body’s core temperature is increased which produces a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level (where most toxins reside).

What’s it good for?

Sauna has been known to offer
numerous health benefits. Through the process of heating the body with infrared light sauna can encourage relaxation, detoxification, pain relief, cell health and improved circulation, anti-aging and skin purification, weight loss, sports recovery, lower blood pressure, wound healing, reduces cellulite, and treatment of chronic diseases.

How should I prepare to sauna?

Drink plenty of water before and after your session. Remove all makeup, lotions, and/or oils from your skin. A shower before you go helps ensure a cleaner sweat. Be sure to express any previous experience with saunas and your goals/preferences to technicians so they can guide you to an optimal temperature. You can wear anything breathable, from your swimsuit to a towel or light athletic clothing. Some prefer to be nude – Choose what you’re comfortable with.

What should I know before I sauna?

Saunas can reach temperatures of 150 degrees or more, but are usually adjustable to accommodate your needs and preferences. When exposing your body to such high temperatures, your pores will be opened to release toxins and can stay that way for a long time. It’s important to take advantage of any cold-room therapy that saunas offer to help your pores close back up after treatment and keep your skin protected from bacteria. The shock to your system stimulates other healthy reactions from your skin, respiratory system, and metabolism as well.
