Infrared saunas increase body temperature, leading to a deeper, more detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where many toxins reside. Infrared Sauna Therapy (IRT) has a wide range of therapeutic benefits in cells and tissues. In addition to reducing pain, IRT is also used to treat various medical conditions. It is a safe, effective method for managing pain without medication.
The IRT process stimulates your immune, lymphatic, and cardiovascular systems by causing your body temperature to rise. As a result, you sweat profusely. Water in our bodies resonates with far-infrared heat, assisting our bodies in the detoxification process, besides triggering profuse sweating when infrared heat is applied. The body will experience the same warmth, circulation, and energy that only physical exercise can provide.
Benefits of an Infrared Sauna include:
- Increases metabolism
- Relieves muscle pain
- Weight loss
- Improves the skin
- Increases circulation
- Improves heart health
- Lowers blood pressure
- Boosts the immune system
- Reduces stress
- Reduces fatigue
- Improves the appearance of cellulite

Infrared light penetrates the several body inches and creates heat, which causes you to sweat on a cellular level.
It feels cozy, warm, and relaxing inside an Infrared Sauna. During the last ten minutes, your heart rate and sweating will increase, while your comfort level will not change.
We recommend drinking plenty of water and eating a light meal before your session (but nothing heavy).
After a sauna session, you’ll likely feel the same way you do after a workout. You’ll feel energized and better in no time, resulting in a productive afternoon and a restful night’s sleep.
