Infrared Sauna Therapy

Using a sauna is one of the easiest forms of self-care. While it's probably best known for "sweating out the toxins", it offers so much more. 

Benefits of Infrared Sauna

DETOXIFICATION

The deep heat stimulates metabolic activity, which triggers the release of toxins through sweat, and through the liver/kidneys.

IMPROVES CIRCULATION

By loosening tension, blood circulation improves greatly, leaving you feeling refreshed and renewed! It's like a total reset!

PAIN RELIEF

Infrared sauna penetrates deep into muscle tissue, tendons, and joints - which can help reduce contractions and spasms.

Infrared sauna therapy can help to release endorphins, leaving you less anxious, less stressed, less depressed, and happier overall.

GLOWING SKIN

The heat accelerates cellular activity and increase circulation to bring more nutrients to the skin and aid in rejuvenation.

How do I prepare?

Eat light

We recommend having a light meal one to two hours before your appointment. It’s best to avoid a heavy meal so you don’t experience sluggishness or heavy digestion during your session. 

Hydrate well

Before a session, drink at least 8 ounces of water to prepare, and then drink an addition 24 ounces of water or electrolytes after your session to re-hydrate.

Dress light

You may want to wear a swimsuit, lightweight shorts, and a tank top/sports bra, or your birthday suit. We recommend loose, comfortable clothes after your session to promote feelings of ease and relaxation.

Remove makeup

To allow your skin to receive the full benefits of infrared therapy, remove all makeup, and avoid body oils and other thick products.

What else should I know?

While infrared sauna is generally considered safe, there are a few instances where we don't recommend it:

  • Having low blood pressure

  • Having kidney disease

  • Taking medications such as diuretics, other blood pressure-lowering drugs, or medications that can cause dizziness

  • Nerve and motor function conditions

  • Pregnancy (unless cleared by your doctor)

  • Unhealed wounds  

  • Heart conditions (unless cleared by your doctor)

During the session, you may feel your heartbeat accelerate.

You might also feel "heavy" and grounded.

These sensations are normal.

It's important to breathe normally, or to take a few deep breaths to help you relax. 

Some people unconsciously hold their breath during a massage, and that creates more tension in the body. 

Just breathe easy and let yourself be.
