Frequently Asked Question
Infrared light is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum. It is completely safe and healthy and although infrared light is a naturally occurring wavelength of the sun, it does not contain the harmful UV rays associated with unprotected sunlight.

"What is the difference between Infrared Sauna vs. Traditional Sauna?"
Infrared heat is a very soothing and gentle heat. Unlike traditional saunas which operate in excess of 180⁰ F making the experience unbearably hot and claustrophobic, infrared saunas have the benefit of being effective at a more comfortable operating temperature of between 120-150⁰ F.
Traditional saunas only heat the air in the cabin whereas Infrared saunas penetrate deep into your cells giving you a deep detoxifying sweat. Because infrared heat penetrates deep into tissues versus just the surface of skin, Infrared saunas are seven times more effective than traditional saunas for detoxifying the body. By raising the body’s core temperature, Infrared saunas can produce a sweat composed of 20% toxins compared to 3% with a traditional sauna.

"What if I don't sweat a lot?"
People sweat at all different levels. For some it takes a few sessions to open up the pores and start the detoxifying process. The more water you drink before, during and after your session the better hydrated you are the more you will sweat. You can also try our clinically proven sweat enhancer “Pure sweat” cream to boost sweating and aid in the detoxifying and fat burning process.
"What do I do while in the sauna?"
We encourage this time to be a quiet time to relax and melt away any stresses or tensions. We provide relaxing music and you can bring a friend and spend quality time together. However, you are welcome to bring a book or your phone to get caught up on your texts, social media or emails.
