about the treatment
Infrared Sauna therapy is an effective tool for natural healing and prevention.
Our Infrared Sauna uses infrared light to heat you from within, as opposed to a traditional sauna heating the air around your body. As a result of the deep penetrating infrared heat, you will feel hot and will sweat intensely, but at much lower temperatures, which makes the infrared sauna feel much more comfortable, and less overheated.
The Infrared Sauna supports the body’s own processes in a number of important areas and helps the body get rid of toxins while cleansing the skin with excess sweating. The treatment can provide instant pain relief, relax muscles, boost metabolism, regulate blood pressure and reduce stress.
Our sauna also comes equipped with a chromotherapy light. Chromotherapy is used in hospitals to help manage depression that comes from seasonal affective disorder, but our light also cycles through other colours to produce different effects. Depending on the chosen light, you can increase circulation, collagen production and sweating – or set it to more calming colours.
Our Infrared Sauna sessions only take 30 minutes to wind down and relax your body, or go for a 60-minutes session if you want to feel completely rejuvenated and detoxed.
Limit food intake an hour before the treatment, and drink plenty of water, before, under and after.

Sweating is the best way to rid the body of toxins (toxic drugs, pollutants, pesticides and heavy metals), which in turn improves the immune system and overall health.
Sweating is also a great way to increase metabolic rate and reduce stress – it’s like a workout without the work. The infrared sauna helps you detoxify, improves circulation, lymphatic drainage and cardiovascular health, reduces pain, increases your metabolic rate to jumpstart weight loss, rejuvenates your skin, and reduces stress and cortisol levels.
Repeated exposure to heat from infrared light results in cumulative health benefits.
An infrared sauna can operate at a lower temperature (usually between 48.8°C and 64°C degrees) than a traditional sauna, which is typically between 65.56 °C and 82.2 °C, heating up the body from within, ensuring a much more efficient detox than normal saunas. Only about 20 percent of the heat goes to heat the air, and the other 80 percent directly heats your body, so the infrared sauna feels less hot and uncomfortable than a normal sauna.
You will actually start your session when the sauna cabin temp is 40-50°C and let your body warm up along with the cabin air temperature. The heated panels are already emitting far infrared energy at maximum capacity and your body is receiving all the infrared energy it can absorb. Take your time and enjoy yourself.
Far Infrared ‘soft’ heat is calming and relaxing, just like feeling your body soak up the warmth of the sun on a cool day, and as your body becomes more accustomed to raising your core temperature on a regular basis you will sweat twice as much and detoxify more compared to a traditional sauna – all at cabin air temperatures that are 40-60°C lower than hot rock and steam saunas!
After you have ‘ramped up’ in your first week or two of use, you will probably find that you want to spend more time in the sauna. It feels good, works great, clears your mind and strengthens your body. Get ready to feel your stress, body aches and pains melt away.
Consistency is key, when it comes to sustainable results, but with both our EMS, Whole Body Cryo and Infrared Sauna, you will feel an instant gratification vs. other treatments that needs to build up over time. Even after the first treatment you will feel calm and relaxed in your body and mind, as your whole nervous system is calmed down and cortisol levels lowered in your body.
You can wear a bathing suit or a towel. We also provide with disposable underwear.
You will be in a private room alone.
Some people initially experience eye irritation, which might be exacerbated with contacts.
We recommend that you do not use lenses during the Infrared Sauna, as the intense heat of the sauna can cause your lenses to dry out, while moisture from the humidity can introduce bacteria to your eyes.
Obviously with all the sweating, you want to make sure to hydrate! Please come to each session well-hydrated, not hungover or after drinking alcohol.
Drinking water is available in the sauna room. Please only use glass or stainless steel bottles in the sauna; plastic bottles are not permitted in the sauna. You should always shower after a sauna session, so rinse of the toxins you have released through your sweat. We provide shower facilities and a towel.
Our sauna is comfortable for a private or couples session.
Yes! Our saunas are sanitized after each use. Infrared light kills all bacteria and any airborne germs.
Infrared Sauna use is not recommended for people who are pregnant, children under 12, those who cannot handle temperature extremes, those with hemophila, fever, insensitivity to heat, and those under the influence of alcohol or who abuse alcohol.
The hot & cold combination therapy will ease the muscle stiffness after the inflammation from your training resolves. But hot and cold can also be used together in an alternating pattern to create a “pumping” action in the circulatory system by restricting circulation to reduce swelling and then increasing circulation to a particular area or your whole body.
Heat increases skin and joint temperature, improves blood circulation and muscle relaxation and decreases joint stiffness. Cold will numb the pain, decrease swelling, constrict blood vessels and block nerve impulses to the joint, and give you increased energy & alertness, as well as a metabolism boost.
EMFs are like invisible energy emissions that come from any object that uses electricity. Most common electrical objects give off such low levels of EMF that they pose no risk to humans.
Though infrared saunas are large and powered by electricity, the technology used in our infrared sauna keeps EMF in an extremely low range of 0.2 to 0.3 mG. For context, the Environmental Protection Agency has previously proposed a safety standard of 3 mG, with anything below 3 mG being deemed as safe.
Chromotherapy is the science of using colors to adjust body vibrations to frequencies that result in health and harmony. The belief that color is important in healing has been around for thousands of years rooted in the idea that specific colors in the spectrum of light positively affect your emotions.
All our treatments are well tested and completely safe. During your treatments, there will always be an educated therapist to guide you and make sure you go through the treatments under controlled and safe conditions.
Our treatments are handpicked to work together across different technologies for even greater results and more efficient health improving outcomes. Therefore, we suggest combining these other treatments to help you reach your goals.
