A warm & relaxing environment that promotes stronger, healthier cells.
The Infrared Sauna uses infrared light energy to heat the inside of a dry sauna, which in turn is absorbed by your body. Hovering at temperatures over 130 degrees F, this energy reaches deep into your body, stimulating a vigorous sweat and satisfying relaxation for over 40 minutes!
Contrary to a conventional sauna that heats the air around a person, an infrared sauna works by emitting light at specific wavelengths. Similar to how plants absorb sunlight for photosynthesis, infrared light energy is absorbed by the body at the cellular level, producing profound therapeutic benefits.
From DNA and RNA splicing to ATP hydrolysis, every action that takes place in our cells requires energy. Many factors, such as the type of food that is metabolized to the amount of water in a cell, contribute to how much energy a cell can produce.
Ultimately, these key factors are what make Compression Therapy a comfortable yet effective tool for redistributing lymphatic fluid throughout the body!
We provide everything you need for the appointment! However, you may bring your own water bottle if you prefer.
While this typically an expectation for first timers for the infrared sauna, it is rather uncommon on the first visit. This is because a first timer’s body is unfamiliar with high doses of infrared light. Similar to how a plant soaks up water when it hasn’t had water in a while, your body absorbs a large amount of infrared light without much being lost as heat. However, with regular use, just like a well watered plant doesn’t soak up new water as well, when your body has absorbed large amounts of infrared light from previous sessions, a lot more energy is lost as heat, thus causing you to sweat more vigorously.
You may if you wish, but it is highly recommended that you wear no clothing in the sauna as this allows for a better absorption of the light energy. The sauna is privatized for individual use only to allow for this.
Our infrared saunas emit three different types of infrared light: near, mid, and far infrared radiation. As a rule of thumb, the longer the wavelength of light, the deeper the penetration of the energy. Therefore, programs that emit more far infrared light focus more on deep tissues within the body such as the cardiovascular system while near infrared light programs focus on more surface level tissues such as the skin.
