Infrared Sauna is a tool that provides many benefits. Infrared light is the natural radiant heat emitted by the sun (not the same light that gives you sunburn). It is part of the light spectrum just beyond the red side of visible light. Infrared light is 100% safe and is even used to warm babies in hospital nurseries. Infrared saunas heat the body from the inside out, instead of heating the air.
The high heat levels you experience in a sauna cause your blood vessels to open up and move closer to the skin’s surface. When blood vessels expand, your circulation improves, and your blood pressure gets lower. Some recent studies have found links between regular sauna use and improved heart health. Infrared Saunas help contribute to your overall health and well-being by helping you relax, detox, loosening up stiff or tight muscles, reducing joint pain, and giving you some much needed time to yourself.

Sauna Etiquette and other helpful info
- Drink water. Please hydrate before going into the infrared sauna. Water is available in the sauna room, but please do not take water inside the sauna. If you need water while in the sauna, please exit the sauna and close the door behind you to maintain the sauna temperature.
- Choose the temperature. The average temperature for an infrared sauna ranges from 100˚F to 140˚F, with beginners starting out at the lower end and more experienced users at the higher end. If this is your first time, start with 100˚F. You may want to stay at this temperature for a few sessions. You can always increase the temperature each session until you reach 140˚F.
- Length of time. Sessions are offered in 30 min or 60 min increments. Saunas come with a timer, so make sure to set it. You don’t want to stay in there too long and risk becoming dehydrated.
- Clothing. How you dress is your choice. Some people will wear bathing suits, while others prefer to go in naked. Please lock the door to the sauna room to prevent anyone accidentally entering while you are in session. Please take two hand towels, one face cloth, and one large towel in the sauna with you. Place one hand towel on the bench and one hand towel on the floor for your feet. The face cloth is to wipe your face as needed and the large towel is for drying off after your session.
- What you can do while in the sauna. Relax, read, meditate, or listen to music. Just don’t go to sleep.
- When your session is done, please take your time and let your body cool down and drink more water. Please continue to drink water throughout the next 48 hours.
- Number of sessions per week. We recommend using the sauna two to four days per week.
