Why InfaRed Sauna over Traditional  Saunas?

Infrared saunas will heat your body, not the air. The temperature inside the sauna does not dictate the benefit or quality of your sauna session. Bear this in mind when seeing and experiencing the ambient temperature inside the sauna.

In their book Beyond Antibiotics, Drs. Michael A. Schmidt et al. state the following: “Saunas are being used by some doctors to stimulate the release of toxins from the bodies of their patients. They have found that a lower temperature (105-125 F) sauna taken for a longer duration is most beneficial. These low temperatures stimulate a fat sweat, which eliminates toxins stored in fat, as opposed to the high temperature sauna, which encourages a water sweat.”

Please follow your doctor’s instructions if they recommend using a lower temperature (which is still beneficial).

Infrared Wellness Sauna



Starts at a high intensity to increase 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.  Cabin temperatures for the detox program average around 130 degrees Fahrenheit.

Pain Relief

An infrared blend provides natural pain relief by reducing inflammation and swelling while near IR LED’s penetrate the tissue to promote cellular repair at a medium, constant intensity level.  Cabin temperatures during the pain relief program range from 135 – 140 degrees Fahrenheit.

Weight Loss

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.  Cabin temperature during the weight loss program is approximately 140 degrees Fahrenheit.


A low, constant intensity level penetrates tissue to help with various skin concerns. Near IR LED’s improve overall skin tone, elasticity and firmness promoting anti-aging benefits.  Cabin temperatures inside the sauna cabin during the anti-aging program average around 140 degrees Fahrenheit.


Far, mid and near infrared rays induce deep relaxation as they relieve muscle tension at a low, comfortable intensity promoting overall stress reduction with regular use.  Cabin temperature inside the sauna average around 135 – 140 degrees Fahrenheit during the relaxation program.


The Balance program is designed for those who enjoy the extreme heat in the cabin at around 155F.  The main purpose of this 30 minute session is to encourage the body to sweat.  If you like the feeling of intense heat and perspiration then this is the program for you.

It is comparable to laying under the sun out on a beautiful, relaxing day. This treatment is actually better because there are no UVA/UVB rays to damage your skin.

Our sauna also feature LED color light therapy, also known as chromotherapy. Color light therapy is a technique of restoring balance by means of applying color to the body. Its history is rooted as far back as the Mayan culture, and has been valued as a remarkable source of healing. Light therapy uses colors for their proposed healing abilities in treating emotional and physical disturbances. It is based on the premise that different colors evoke different responses in people. For example, some colors are considered to be stimulating, whereas others may be soothing. Today, the therapeutic applications of light and color are being investigated in major hospitals and research centers worldwide. Results indicate that full-spectrum, ultraviolet, colored, and laser light can have therapeutic value for a range of conditions from chronic pain and depression to immune disorders.


Light Therapy has been reported to reduce swelling, relieve pain, decrease inflammation, accelerate open wound healing and greatly reduce overall recovery after medical or surgical procedures. Patients have demonstrated increased range of motion, decreased muscle tension and spasm, and improved circulation. The therapy can be used for pain management such as joint and back pain, sore or torn muscles, sprains, arthritis, post-surgical scars, burns, wounds and more. When used with infrared technology, light therapy is one of the most effective and non- invasive ways to repair the body.

Light therapy is also often used relieve Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). SAD affects individuals when the lack of sunlight results in seasonal depression. Phototherapy helps with SAD by resetting the internal biological clock, helping individuals sleep better and regulate their mood.

Light therapy is also a growing treatment for anti-aging. Many individuals have seen a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, and age spots. Combined with infrared therapy, LED chromotherapy can be a great way to revitalize skin. Light therapy energizes skin cells, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin; giving skin back it’s youthful look.

Infrared light boosts circulation and increases the production of endorphins in the body, similar to a “runner’s high”.
