Infrared Sauna

Why Use an Infrared Sauna?

Infrared Saunas typical reach 120-140 degrees F delivering the best therapeutic benefits.  Traditional saunas heat the air to 150-195 degrees F, which can be very uncomfortable and not deliver additional benefit. In fact, traditional sauna sessions are generally cut short.

 

According to Dr. Melissa Young, Functional Medicine Specialist (commenting on the difference in temperature between traditional and infrared saunas): "Infrared saunas can definitely be much more comfortable for people while delivering the same sort of benefits.” 

Wavelengths from the sauna penetrate the skin about 4cm and increase the body temperature without the need to heat the air around you.  Infrared panels used inside an infrared sauna easily penetrate human tissue, heating up your body before heating up the air creating a more comfortable experience.

Our sauna delivers ​6 carbon heaters: 2 on back wall, 1 on each side, 1 front of bench, and 1 on floor and has been EMF-tested and proven to emit extremely low levels of EMFs.

 

Chromotherapy in 7 colors is also available.  Chromotherapy, also known as color light therapy, is  relaxing and therapeutic and can help restore the body’s balance. Chromotherapy relies on the concept that different colors of light each vibrate differently.  The human body can respond to this vibration in different ways.  Depending on the color used, one can receive certain physiological benefits and more.

However ... 

You should not use our sauna if:

  • You are under 18 years old.

  • You've used or abused alcohol or drugs within the last 24 hours.  It is not advisable to "sweat out" a hangover.  

  • You're menstruating.

  • You have a sensitivity to heat or cannot sweat.

  • You have a fever.

  • You have a recent acute joint injury (avoid sauna for 48 hours).

  • You have Multiple Sclerosis, Central Nervous System Tumors, or Diabetes with Neuropathy.  These conditions are associated with impaired sweating.

  • You are a hemophiliac or prone to bleeding.  

  • You use prescription drugs such as diuretics, barbiturates and beta-blockers, which may impair the body’s natural heat loss mechanisms. Some over the counter drugs such as antihistamines may also cause the body to be more prone to heat stroke.

 

You should consult your personal physician before you use our sauna if: 

  • You are pregnant.

  • You are over the age of 70 as the ability to maintain core body temperature decreases with age primarily due to circulatory conditions and sweat gland function. Your body must be able to activate its natural cooling processes in order to maintain core body temperature.

  • You have cardiovascular conditions or problems (hypertension / hypotension), congestive heart failure, impaired coronary circulation or those who are taking medications, which might affect blood pressure.

  • You have any implants such as metal pins, rods, artificial joints or any other surgical implants.

  • You have any implanted silicone or silicone prostheses (i.e. for nose or ear replacement), which may be warmed by the Far infrared waves.
