Therapeutic Infrared Sauna
Get the benefit of aerobic exercise and relaxation simultaneously while strengthening your immune system. We are exposed to environmental toxins on a regular basis which can overwhelmed our bodies ability to get rid of them naturally. Detoxification through sweat in our infrared sauna is an effective way to rid the body of these poisons.
Use of Infrared saunas on a consistent basis has been clinically shown to improve impaired blood vessel functions in patients with high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol.
Infrared heat can help reduce acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, and any skin lesions or cuts. The increased blood flow promotes cellular activity as well as improve skin tone by freeing your skin from dry skin cells.
Heat has been proven to reduce pain sensation by direct action on both free-nerve endings and peripheral nerves.
Infrared heat warms your body, not the air, which provides a deep and soothing heat. This also allows for lower heat levels and longer sessions. Infrared sauna heat penetrates deeply into the skin which helps reduce pain and inflammation.
Infrared sauna sessions can increase range of motion and flexibility to help prevent injury, making it an ideal pre-workout for athletes and life-long benefit for everyone.
Our full spectrum saunas have embedded bipolar magnets to further aid in the healing process of body pain and inflammation reduction. Magnetic therapy has also been used to help increase athletic endurance and performance.
We want you to make infrared sauna therapy part of your wellness aims, and make it accessible. Therefore, we strive to keep our rates affordable. Our staff is ready to book your appointment from Monday to Friday, 9 am – 6 pm. Contact us today.
What should I bring to wear during a sauna session?
Less is more, and whatever is most comfortable for you to sweat in, for example, a bathing suit or athletic wear. You are provided with two towels - one to sit on during your session.
How long is a standard session?
In order to get the full benefits, the suggested time is between 20 and 40 minutes. Infrared saunas operate at lower temperatures than traditional saunas, which allow for longer sessions. The maximum time is 40 minutes and the sauna will shut off automatically. You have the room for an hour to allow you time to cool off and dress.
What is the range in temperature that the sauna heats up to?
An infrared sauna can operate at a lower temperature (usually between 1o0˚F and 140˚F) than a traditional sauna. You are able to control and adjust the temperature inside the sauna to your comfort level. The door can be easily opened during the session to quickly lower the temperature.

What is a "full spectrum" infrared sauna?
Our saunas are "full-spectrum" which offer the full range of benefits, and are set apart from lower-cost, consumer grade saunas. Below is a description of the benefits of "full spectrum" infrared saunas.
Near Infrared: The near infrared wavelength is most beneficial in cellular health, cellular immunity, wound healing, skin purification, and pain relief.
As a typical rule, near infrared will not penetrate deep enough into your skin to be majorly beneficial past the surface. Because of this, it does allow for cellular health, wound healing, and blood flow, because it brings your blood to the surface.
Mid-Infrared: The mid infrared wavelength is most commonly associated with pain relief, improved circulation, and weight loss, since it penetrates a little deeper into your skin.
Far Infrared: The far infrared wavelength is associated with weight loss, detoxification, blood pressure reduction, relaxation, pain relief and so much more. It is also considered to have many of the same benefits of near infrared as well as additional benefits such as cardiovascular health, skin purification/beautification, body flexibility, rejuvenation, blood circulation, and even cancer therapy.
Far infrared penetrates deep into your skin, muscle tissue, and even your organs, giving your body a full-range of health, healing & wellness benefits. Because of this, you get better blood flow as it is not limited to the outer layer of your skin. Instead, your blood flow is increased throughout your body and organs to give the best overall health advantages.

What makes infrared different from a traditional sauna?
Unlike a traditional sauna, infrared saunas don’t heat the air around you. Instead, they use infrared heaters to warm your body directly. This type of heat penetrates below skin into the muscle tissue allowing for a more soothing and therapeutic range of benefits.
As well, because our saunas have partial glass enclosures, users find the experience less congestive and relaxing, with easily operated doors.
