Infrared Sauna FAQs
What is an Infrared Sauna?
This is a type of sauna that uses light to create heat, as opposed to traditional saunas that use heat and steam to warm the air around you. An infrared sauna works to heat your body directly instead of just warming the air around you. Our sauna is made out of FSC Certified Canadian Hemlock Wood with 7 carbon fiber heaters and chromotherapy lights that assist in healing the physical, mental and spiritual energy imbalance that tends to lead to disease.
What should I wear?
For your Infrared Sauna session, you will be given a towel and a robe and an area to change if you decide to change into undergarments, however we recommend wearing anything that you are comfortable sweating in.
What should I expect?
You will be taken to our third floor to the closed off area for the sauna. You will be given a towel and the option to change if needed. The sauna will be set to the allotted time and you will have the option to adjust the chromotherapy lights to your liking and connect your phone to the Bluetooth to listen to your music. There will be a hamper near by to place your towel once you complete your session. The sauna will beep once, the session is complete, and you can change and head back to the reception area.
Are there any restrictions to using an infrared sauna?
Pregnant or lactating; untreated hypertension; lupus; neuropathy; multiple sclerosis; dehydration or heat illness (heat cramp, exhaustion, stroke); acute or chronic edema or lymphedema; hemophilia and/or a predisposition to hemorrhage; cholinergic urticaria, acantholytic dermatosis, malaria, or severe burns/scarring/heat rash
How often should I do sauna sessions?
For general well-being you can use the sauna 2-3 times per week.
For pain management you can use the sauna daily depending on the severity and your heat tolerance.
You should wait 6 hours to use the sauna if you have used cryotherapy.
