Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
An infrared sauna is a type of sauna that uses light to create heat instead of the traditional protocol of using heat to warm the air. Your body is heated directly by the light penetrating your skin, giving you a deep, detoxifying sweat.
What can I expect during the treatment?
As you relax in the infrared sauna, the temperature will gradually increase. You will feel your body gradually getting warmer, increasing your core body temperature. You will experience an increase in circulation, a purifying sweat, your muscles will relax, and tension will leave your body. You may also experience your heartbeat beating faster similar to a workout.
What are the results?
Aside from the full relaxation of the mind and body, the benefits of infrared sauna are numerous and diverse. You may experience deep detoxification, less pain in your muscles and joints, weight loss from calories burned, skin purification, and improved circulation.
Is it safe?
Yes, an infrared sauna is completely safe. Please follow your doctor’s instructions if they recommend using a lower temperature (which may still be beneficial). It is recommended that you drink lots of water before and during your treatment.
