The infrared Sauna can be used after your healing session for an additional cost of $12. We are sorry we aren't offering the use of the sauna unless you have a session due to it being used in the same space. There may be times when I'm running the store without clients but this would have to be made with short notice.
Infrared saunas are an effective tool for natural healing and prevention. Infrared light has the ability to penetrate human tissue which in turn produces a host of anti-aging health benefits making infrared saunas one of the most popular therapies for overall healthier living. If you want to get yourself back into balance, an infrared sauna may be the ticket to achieving your wellness goals. Here are some of the health benefits of infrared sauna therapy:
Detoxification & Skin Purification
Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal & stay healthy. Far infrared heats the body directly causing a rise in core temperature resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside.
Unlike traditional saunas which operate at extremely harsh temperatures, infrared is a gentle, soothing, and therapeutic heat that promotes relaxation and improved sleep. Infrared sauna therapy helps you relax while receiving an invigorating deep tissue sweat, leaving you fully refreshed after each session.
Lower Blood Pressure
Infrared saunas induce a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and helps circulation. Scientific evidence shows that using an infrared sauna a couple of times a week lowers blood pressure.
Infrared therapy stimulates the circulatory system and more fully oxygenates the body’s cells. Better blood circulation means more toxins flow from the cellular level to the skin’s surface to improve cell health, aid in muscle recovery, and strengthen the immune system.
Studies have shown that a 30-minute infrared sauna session can burn upwards of 600 calories while you relax! As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories.
Infrared heat penetrates tissue, joints, and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia. Pain management professionals incorporate infrared heat therapy into treatment plans to decrease pain and muscle spasms and to speed up recovery time.
Heating the muscles with infrared rays produces an increase in blood flow similar to that seen during exercise. Regular infrared sauna use can significantly stimulate blood flow up to twice the normal rate.

Sauna Tips, Recommendations & Requirements:
Recommended session times are 30-60 minutes, 20-35 minutes for beginners. The sauna comes with a built-in stereo, so you can listen to the radio. Feel free to read a book or magazine, or just sit back and relax. Our sauna also features chromotherapy, or color therapy, which is defined as a system of alternative medicine in which colors and their energy frequencies are used to correct psychological or physical imbalances. A more general definition simply states that chromotherapy is based on the premise that certain colors are infused with healing energies. Choose a color that helps you relax and unwind.
Please remove perfumes, makeup, deodorant, dirt, oils, and lotions on your body before entering the sauna. These products can block your pores and limit perspiration, decreasing the effectiveness of your sauna session. I will have steamed towels which you may use before and after the session.
During the sauna session, we ask that guests wear a bathing suit, trunks, or sports bra, and to place towels on the bench seat, backrest, and the floor to absorb perspiration and maintain the cleanliness of the sauna. Toweling off excessive perspiration throughout your session will help your body perspire more freely. To help keep our costs down, please limit your towel usage. Guests are required to bring personal bath towels to sit on and dry off with. We will provide additional towels for the floor, backrest, and face.
Make sure you are adequately hydrated before, during, and after your session. Guests are encouraged to bring their own personal water bottle. The room is booked in one-hour time slots so that each guest has time to change and dry off after their session. The temperature of the sauna reaches 140 degrees, but there is a control on the inside for guests to decrease the temperature if necessary. If at any time you feel lightheaded, open the door or vent to quickly cool down.
