IS INFRARED SAFE?
Yes! Infared heat is part of the sun's invisible spectrum - it is safe and healing for all living things. One of FIR's characteristics is the ability to easily and deeply penetrate into joints, muscles and tissues, providing lasting relaxation and many health benefits.
I HAVE A MEDICAL CONDITION, SHOULD I USE AN INFRARED SAUNA?
If you have a medical condition or you are unsure, we recommend you speak with your health care professional prior to using an infrared sauna.
WHAT IS THE EXPERIENCE LIKE?
Sitting in our infrared sauna you don't feel overly hot as it is your body core that is being heated, not the surrounding air. The first thing people notice is a stress-relieving relaxation of the muscles. Tension melts away and the deep penetrating warmth is very soothing on aches and pains. After 10 minutes or so you will start to sweat profusely and may notice your heart rate increases. Relaxing in the infrared sauna for 30 minutes you will burn at least 300 calories and leave the treatment room feeling warm and rejuvenated, as though you've just been for a run or had a big satisfying workout! Or you may feel pleasantly relaxed, as you have just lay in the "sun" for 30 minutes. It depends on your chosen program. You may also notice an alleviation of pain, muscle soreness and inflammation, as the circulation has been stimulated to promote the clearance of inflammatory mediators and tissue repair. Whichever program you choose, you will emerge feeling positive with a sense of joy! However, it's also quite common not to sweat in your first session.
DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING WITH ME?

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
