What to Expect

Infrared Sauna, Sauna pod, sauna

Schedule your session

All sessions are 30-minutes.

Hydrate

Each Infrared Sauna session you are sweating a good bit, some more than others. The sweat produced is about 80% water, 20% toxins so it is important that before, during and after each sauna detox session you drink plenty of water, at least 24 ounces, to rehydrate.

Listen to Your Body

Listen to your body and take care not to overheat during your first few sessions. If you are feeling lightheaded or uncomfortable, simply slide the lightweight top down to expose your chest and arms to cooler air. Alternatively, you can end your session at any time by sliding the top down and slowly stepping out of the sauna. 

Set a temperature zone

The optimal sauna temperature is 100°F to 130°F. Temperatures in this range allow for maximum concentration of infrared (IR) wavelengths. IR Wavelengths are the key to delivering the many health benefits of using a sauna, including detox, pain relief, skin purification, weight loss and stress relief. If you become too hot at any point during your session, you can always make adjustments: Adjust your pod's temperature, push the top back for cooler air, or end your session early. Again - listen to your body! 

Get comfortable

Our Infrared Sauna suites are private rooms. Please wear what feels most comfortable for you or nothing at all. Each suite has an area to hang your clothes, towels to dry off and cold towels to cool down. Enjoy deep relaxation with aromatherapy, custom lighting and tranquil music. The sauna studio also has two private showers if you need to clean off before heading to another engagement.

Schedule regular sessions

Infrared Sauna sessions can be booked every day. To achieve maximum health benefits, it is recommended to enjoy an Infrared Sauna session 3-4 times a week.
