Clients may undress to their comfort level. We suggest light or thin clothing to maximize the absorption of the IR heat. IR will easily penetrate thin or light clothing. We do have changing rooms available.
You may not sweat much during your first few sessions in the infrared sauna. Don’t worry, this is normal. Most people will sweat more on subsequent visits.
You will start your 30 min session at approximately 100°F. The sauna will reach approximately 130°F by the end of the session. The heat in an IR sauna is a comfortable dry heat and will not reach the extremely high temperatures like a more traditional sauna.
What is Infrared heat?
Every object with a temperature gives off some sort of Infrared Heat (IR). Anything from a candle to an ice cube gives off IR. This is the type of heat you feel from a fire or the sun. IR heat is also how many hospitals keep babies warm when they are sick Depending on the wavelength, near, mid or far IR, the IR heat will not only heat up the skin but also penetrates through the body to provide a safe means for natural healing.
Near IR is shortness wavelength and penetrates into the skin and promotes removal of toxins, dead cells, oils, and dirt. It also helps stimulate collagen and elastin production which provides the skin with a more youthful appearance. This is the type of heat that can possibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It promotes skin renewal and skin health.
Mid IR is a longer wavelength that can penetrate deeper into the soft tissue of the body where inflammation occurs. Mid infrared could help support healthy weight loss, stimulates the circulation and cardiovascular system, helps expand and dilate blood vessels to increase circulation to allow more oxygen to reach injured tissue.
Far IR is the longest wavelength and penetrates the deepest into the body to raise the core temperature. It can help excrete toxins due to increasing blood flow and dilation of blood vessels, promotes a detoxifying sweat to stimulate a sluggish metabolism to improve fat burning and raises the core temperature which can increase your immunity.
