This type of sauna is sometimes called a far-infrared sauna. "Far" describes where the infrared waves fall on the light spectrum. A regular sauna uses heat to warm the air, which in turn warms your body. An infrared sauna heats your body directly without warming the air around you.
Benefits of Infrared Sauna
Infrared sauna therapy helps you relax while getting an invigorating deep tissue sweat, leaving you fully refreshed, rejuvenated & renewed. Unlike traditional saunas, infrared saunas provide a gentle, soothing therapeutic heat that promotes relaxation & improved sleep.
Infrared sauna heat increases your blood circulation to help stimulate the sweat glands, releasing built up toxins in the body which can then be eliminated by the liver and bowel. Regular infrared sauna sessions can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of accumulated highly toxic metals such as lead, mercury, nickel, alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid, and other organic and inorganic compounds.
No one is allowed in the sauna while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
You may connect your music, podcasts, sounds of choice to the sauna via Bluetooth however smartphones may not be handled while inside the sauna.

Infrared Sauna Contraindications
Medications (Diuretics, Barbiturates or Beta-Blockers) – If you’re on any prescription medication,
consult your doctor about the intended effects and possible side-effects that may be relevant. Any
medication that affects heart rate, blood pressure and circulation, and the body’s natural heat
regulation response. Some prescriptions may inhibit sweating, which hinders the body from
releasing heat. This can lead to a heat rash or even a heat stroke.
Alcohol & Drug – The use of alcohol and/or drugs can lead to unconsciousness from the
body’s negative reaction to high heat. A sauna session will also not help to “sweat” out a hangover;
since the body is already in a dehydrated state, sweating will cause further electrolyte depletion.
Remember to stay hydrated before and after a session to replace those electrolytes and minerals!
Reduced/Inability to Sweat – Sweating is a very important part of the infrared sauna process! If you
have a reduced ability/inability to sweat, it will be harder to regulate core body temperature and
cool the body, which can lead to a heat stroke.
Hemophilia – If you are prone to excess bleeding, it’s best to avoid infrared sauna therapy as the
heat stimulates blood circulation.
Pregnancy – If you are pregnant, consult your physician for advice to see if infrared sauna therapy is
Recent Joint Injury – If you had a recent joint injury, an infrared sauna session may worsen the
swelling of the injury. Recently injured joints should not be heated.
