Sauna appointments are scheduled one person at a time. Children are not permitted. Appointments can be made without a massage appointment. When an appointment is made in conjunction with a massage, it is best to do the sauna first due to lowered blood pressure after a massage. 15 min is recommended for your first visit.

If you are looking for a way to get rid of your body’s toxins and burn calories at the same time, you won’t find a better and safer solution than luxuriating in sweat in an infrared sauna. The use of heat to perspire and detoxify the body has been practiced by humans throughout history. In fact, you’ll find mentions of thermal therapy across the globe, from Native Americans (who use sweat lodges), to the Mayans to the Ancient Greeks.
Whether you would like to lose weight, purify your skin, sleep better, detox, or you simply want to relax after a long day, infrared saunas have many health benefits which we will discuss below.
Infrared Saunas vs. Traditional Dry Saunas
You might be asking yourself, “What’s so special about infrared saunas?” A lot of people are already familiar with the traditional dry sauna. It relies on warming surfaces inside the sauna to indirectly heat your body. Infrared saunas take this process to a whole new level as they heat your body without heating the room surfaces. Here are some basics:
- Infrared saunas radiate heat that your skin easily and directly absorbs
- These heat waves penetrate your tissues and muscles
- Your core body temperature rises, but at a lower ambient temperature
Basically, infrared saunas make you sweat at a much lower temperature than traditional dry saunas. The cooler temperature, enables your body to sweat out toxins while not getting overheated. This is one very distinct health benefit of infrared saunas. They might actually be safer than a traditional sauna, particularly for people who are overly sensitive to heat.
When you think of losing weight, you probably think of someone huffing and puffing while sweating their way through a workout session. Saunas make you sweat too, but do infrared saunas help you lose weight? Absolutely.
When it comes to weight loss, the real question is, “Do you burn calories in a sauna?” According to clinical studies, you can burn as much as 600 calories in one infrared sauna session. That’s roughly equivalent to jogging or swimming for an hour. Not only do you burn calories, but it boosts your metabolism as well. The body cools itself down after infrared heat makes your core temperature rise. This increases blood flow to the skin surface, so you continue shedding those pounds without much exertion from your part.
Detoxification and Anti-Aging Properties
In addition to infrared sauna weight loss, infrared heat gives you a less expensive and healthy alternative to all of those costly skin creams. Infrared heat promotes collagen growth and healing in the dermis and epidermis layers of your skin. Therefore, you get fewer wrinkles, smaller pores, and better skin tone.
On top of this, when using an infrared home sauna your skin releases unwanted chemicals in the body through sweating. This is known as detoxification, and it can have a deep impact on your immune system. Infrared saunas not only make you look better, but they also make you feel better inside.
Improved Circulation and Lower Blood Pressure
Now, not only do infrared saunas burn fat, but they improve overall circulation as well. Your peripheral blood vessels dilate as heat goes through your body, similar to what happens during exercise. Circulation to your extremities can be stimulated to twice as fast when you are at rest, which means you get increased circulation and an increased heartbeat simply by sitting inside your infrared sauna.
As infrared saunas improve circulation, they lower your blood pressure at the same time. The heat a sauna emits induces sweating that increases both blood flow and heart rate. Cardiac activity is increased, thereby lowering your blood pressure. A study conducted in Finland over a period of 20 years found that increased sauna use resulted in decreased heart disease in men.
If you have a heart condition, you should ask your doctor if an infrared sauna would provide health benefits for you, or if you should avoid saunas altogether. Do your own research as well for more information on safe sauna use and sauna health benefits.
Pain, Wound, and Arthritis Relief
Another health benefit of infrared saunas is that it can help treat body aches as well as more severe afflictions like arthritis, fibromyalgia, and other inflammatory conditions. This is due to the ability of infrared waves to penetrate as deep as two inches into joints, tissues, and muscles.
Aside from pain relief, infrared heat also helps accelerate the healing of burns and wounds by boosting cell regeneration and a stronger immune system.
