Infrared Sauna

About Infrared Sauna

Infrared light (experienced as heat) is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum with the ability to penetrate your body’s tissues, giving a soothing, natural “warmth”.

Solocarbon infrared technology is therapeutic because it is 95-99% efficient at heating the body directly rather than heating the air. Your core body temperature is raised, which produces a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where the majority of toxins reside.

Sauna Programs

cardio | near, mid and far infrared rays

Starts at a high intensity to increase heart rate and cardiac output then lowers to sustain heart rate level. Circulation increases to promote healthy blood pressure.

detoxification | mid and far infrared rays

Starts at a high intensity to increases the body’s core temperature then reduces to a low, comfortable intensity level. Infrared combination improves vascular access flow to reach toxins at the cellular level. Infrared saunas generate a sweat 7x more detoxifying than a traditional sauna.

pain relief |near, mid and far infrared rays

An infrared blend provides natural pain relief by reducing inflammation and swelling while near infrared penetrates the tissue to promote cellular repair at a medium, constant intensity level. Research shows therapeutic benefits to back, neck and arthritis pain from regular use of infrared heat therapy.

relaxation | near and far infrared rays

Far infrared induces deep relaxation as it relieves muscle tension at a low, comfortable intensity promoting overall stress reduction with regular use. Improves circulation, clinically shown to reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.

weight loss | mid and far infrared rays

Starts at a high intensity to stimulate the cardiovascular system then reduces to a medium level. As the body works to cool itself, there is an increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate similar to exercise. Studies have shown a 30 minute infrared sauna session can burn up to 600 calories.

anti-aging | near and far infrared rays

A low, constant intensity level penetrates tissue to help with various skin concerns. Near infrared improves overall skin tone, elasticity and firmness promoting anti-aging benefits. The skin’s appearance improves as pores open from a deeper sweat induced by the infrared therapy.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)


INFRARED VS. TRADITIONAL SAUNA, WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

Infrared saunas use infrared light (the invisible, safe part of the sun’s spectrum) to heat the body from within rather than heating the air around your body.

HOW SAFE IS IT?

You can be exposed to infrared light for hours without risk of burning. Infrared is a naturally occurring output of the sun, but does not contain the harmful UV rays associated with unprotected sunlight.

WHAT SHOUD I WEAR?

You can wear a bathing suit, a towel or loose comfortable clothing. Our saunas are private and designed for individual use.

HOW LONG IS A SESSION?

All of our sauna sessions are 45 minutes long. Use caution and end your session early if you feel too warm, light headed, or nauseous.

HOW IS IT CLEANED?

Our saunas are sanitized after each use. BONUS: Infrared light helps kill bacteria and any airborne germs.
