HOW IT WORKS
WHY WE LOVE IT
You’re most likely familiar with a traditional sauna: the wooden box, the rocks, the heat and the humidity opens your pores and causes your body to try to cool itself by sweating profusely. It’s relaxing. It’s detoxifying. It downright feels great.
But the main reason we love cutting-edge infrared saunas is because they don’t bother heating up the air in a sauna. Instead, infrared saunas use infrared lamps to warm your body straight on in a process called electromagnetic radiation.
It’s a unique concept, but essentially the infrared panels heat up your body at a faster rate than they heat up the air, so you get all of the sweating without all of the heat.
“I was a big fan of traditional saunas, but over time I became too uncomfortable to enjoy the full benefits. Infrared saunas give you the best of both worlds. All the relief, none of the uncomfortable, sweaty room.”Stan O.
When starting out, it’s best to give your body a few days to recover from using any kind of sauna or new heat treatment. If you tolerate every other day, work up to four days a week. If that goes well for you, then you can use the infrared sauna every day.
The infrared sauna itself does not get hot at all. It stays close to room temperature. The infrared lights, however, warm and penetrate your skin, which will induce sweating and your feeling of warmth. You’ll get a similar sensation and sweat as you would in a traditional sauna, without the entire sauna being warm.
While both forms of sauna induce rest and relaxation, because an infrared sauna doesn’t rely on treating an entire enclosed area with extreme heat, many people say they are able to enjoy the sauna longer with the infrared lights, which increases your core temperature.
In addition, some people find traditional saunas uncomfortable. Many find that they are able to tolerate the infrared light panels without any discomfort.
Each membership tier includes a set number of core treatments, and also provides the membership holder a special discounted rate on an unlimited number of core and advanced treatments.
