Infrared heat can greatly benefit the sore, damaged, or tired muscles of an athlete. The heat penetrates the muscles, increasing blood circulation and assisting with muscle repair. Infrared heat will also help in the reduction of lactic acids, allowing tight and worn-out muscles to relax and rejuvenate.
Infrared saunas detoxify seven times more than traditional saunas---releasing your body of harmful toxins that impede regular functions.
Studies have shown that an infrared sauna session can burn upwards of 600 calories while you relax.
Infrared sauna use increases circulation which revitalizes the skin, helps reduce pores, and stimulates collagen production to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin tone throughout the body.
Infrared light has been proven to kill even the most resistant types of bacteria and allows it to initiate the killing of pathogens in a wound that has become infected.
Infrared penetrates tissues, joints and muscles to relieve aches and pains stemming from overuse, strain or repetitive motion. Pain management professionals incorporate infrared heat therapy into treatment plans to decrease pain and muscle spasms and to speed up recovery time.
Infrared saunas decrease cortisol and increase serotonin. During a session, your body’s muscles are warmed by infrared heat. This helps to release the stress and fatigue brought on by muscle tension.
Infrared saunas stimulate the circulatory system and oxygenate the body’s cells. The increase in blood flow results in greater overall vitality---just like a workout, but without the workout!
A CLEAN SWEAT
Infrared heat kills 99% of bacteria, creating an inherently sterile environment. Relax your mind and rejuvenate your body in confidence.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHY SHOULD I SWEAT?
Where do we begin?! There are so many benefits from sweating that it has become a celeb “must have" in their beauty and fitness routine. Sweating is a great way to help realize your personal fitness, wellness and beauty goals. By increasing circulation, your body benefits from a number of positive effects, such as glowing skin, pain relief, weight loss, stress relief, increased athletic performance, improved immune function, injury recovery and more.
WHAT IS INFRARED HEAT?
Infrared is a light wave of electromagnetic spectrum, that is invisible to the human eye. It penetrates human tissue, which in turn produces a host of anti-aging and health benefits.
HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT FROM TRADITIONAL SAUNAS?
We get this question a lot! Unlike traditional Finnish convection saunas which heat the body from the outside-in, resulting in hot, often intolerable air, our medical-grade infrared saunas heat the body from the inside-out, leaving the air pleasant and comfortable, allowing for a longer sweat. In your sauna pods, your head is out and not exposed to the high heat.
WHAT SHOULD I DO BEFORE COMING IN TO SWEAT?
We recommend coming fully hydrated and eating a little snack before your sweat session. It is important to drink plenty of water before, during and after you sweat.
HOW WILL I FEEL DURING AND AFTER SWEATING?
Infrared saunas heat you very gently and slowly, making it a very peaceful experience for most people. You may find that you do not sweat for the first 10-15 minutes, or not very much at all your first time. With increased usage you will likely notice an increased ability to sweat more productively. After sweating you will feel relaxed and rejuvenated. You may notice glowing skin, diminished wrinkles, muscle and injury relief, as well as a sense of relaxation.
