ENHANCE YOUR WELLNESS
IN OUR INFRARED SAUNA
Combining full spectrum infrared light + chromotherapy
Transform your wellness as you relax and unwind in our Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna. Unlike traditional saunas, our Infrared Sauna is a more comfortable heat that can penetrate warmth deep into the joints, muscles, and tissues. This type of warming of the body helps to increase circulation, promote oxygen flow throughout the blood stream, enhance and improve cardiovascular and lymphatic systems, and can promote healing throughout the whole body.
Infrared sauna can provide a range of health benefits, one of the most desired benefits when using our sauna is the natural pain relief you can achieve. Just one session can help to reduce pain levels by up to 70%. The warming heat will help to relax the body, reducing muscle spasms, muscle tension, and inflammation, by promoting circulation and detoxification throughout the body. Inflammation is also reduced by relieving its core triggers, such as toxins and stress.
With consistent sauna use, a range of health benefits can be achieved including improvements in pain relief, reducing inflammation, muscle recovery, sleep, relaxation, skin health, cardio health and more. Using a sauna is similar to exercise, doing it once is good for your health, but for long-term results, you need consistency. That’s why we recommend including sauna visits as a regular part of your health and wellness routine. In just a 30 min session, you will feel an immediate sense of relaxation, as tension and stress melt away, circulation and the detoxification pathway are stimulated, and you are left feeling relaxed, revitalised and glowing.

Learn more about the benefits
Chronic inflammation can have long-term and whole-body effects. Infrared saunas naturally reduce inflammation by relieving its core triggers, such as toxins and stress, and promoting circulation and detoxification throughout the body. A blood test can show the level of inflammation within the body, and the most common marker tested is the C-reactive protein or CRT. One study out of Finland showed that levels of CRT in the body were lower in those that used the sauna more regularly. In fact, it was a function of how often they used the sauna. The more frequently the 2000 men in the study used the sauna, the less CRP they exhibited in their bodies. For treatment planning to reduce inflammation, we would recommend initially having an infrared sauna session 1 or 2 times a week depending on your condition. The more sauna sessions you complete closer together in the month, the better for reducing inflammation.
The heating of the body can assist in reducing lactic acid, improving your recovery process, and one research study showed significant improvements in flexibility, particularly in hips, hamstrings and lower back.
An infrared sauna session can help to clear your skin through increased circulation and detoxification, cleansing the skin, unclogging pores and removing dead skin cells (good idea to exfoliate or dry body brush before sauna).
Near, Mid & Far Wavelengths
The infrared spectrum consists of near (NIR), mid (MIR), and far (FIR) waves, each with distinct characteristics and benefits: Near infrared (NIR) penetrates the skin’s surface more effectively than the other two, promoting skin renewal, cell health, wound healing, and tissue growth. Mid infrared (MIR) can penetrate deeper into the body’s soft tissue where inflammation occurs. MIR helps expand blood vessels and increases circulation, so more oxygen can reach injured areas of the body. Far infrared (FIR) reaches the deepest into the body, where toxins are stored. By raising your core body temperature, FIR stimulates the sweat glands, resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat that leaves you feeling revitalized.
Is Infrared Heat Safe?
Infrared heat is completely safe! It is the type of heat used in hospitals to warm newborn infants. Infrared is a naturally occurring output of the sun without the harmful UV rays associated with unprotected sunlight.
Infrared sauna heats the body creating a positive heat stress response, which improves the cardiovascular and lymphatic system. This helps to increase blood circulation and with dilation of blood vessels, will also help to move oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to promote healing throughout the whole body. You will also experience a good cleansing sweat which assists detoxification. Studies that looked into conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, osteo arthritis, fibromyalgia, and myofascial pain, found pain can be significantly reduced with consistent use of infrared sauna. One study treated patients with rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis with a series of eight infrared sauna sessions over a four-week period, and showed that infrared sauna was well tolerated, had no adverse effects, and no exacerbation of disease. Pain and stiffness decreased clinically, and improvements were statistically significant. Fatigue also decreased, and patients felt comfortable on average during and especially after treatment. To reduce pain, we recommend initially 2 sessions a week for the first month, then reducing to 1 a week to continue to maintain.
Infrared saunas have been shown to enhance and improve your cardiovascular and lymphatic systems. The increase of blood circulation, dilation of blood vessels, and moving the oxygen and nutrient-rich blood promotes healing throughout the whole body
Sleep & Relaxation
Infrared sauna therapy promotes relaxation by helping to balance your body’s level of cortisol, your body’s primary stress hormone. The heat generated by the sauna will also help to relax muscles and relieve tension throughout the body, allowing our body to relax and destress.
LED Light Therapy
Our sauna also uses LED light therapy which, further enhances your experience and the benefits. We will adjust the lights to suit the time of day and your desired benefits.
Who shouldn't use Infrared Sauna (Contraindications)
Fresh scars: Wait until scar is healed and no longer sensitive to heat Medications: Individuals who are using Warfarin or other blood thinning drugs should not use the sauna. Individuals who are using prescription drugs should seek the advice of their personal physician or a pharmacist for possible changes in the drugs effect when the body is exposed to infrared energy. Diuretics, barbiturates and beta-blockers may impair the body’s natural heat loss mechanisms. Some over the counter drugs such as antihistamines may also cause the body to be more prone to heat stroke. Cardiovascular Conditions: Individuals with cardiovascular conditions or problems (hypertension/ hypotension), congestive heart failure, impaired coronary circulation or those who are taking medications, which might affect blood pressure, should exercise extreme caution when exposed to prolonged heat. Heat stress increases cardiac output, blood flow, in an effort to transfer internal body heat to the outside environment via the skin (perspiration) and respiratory system. This takes place primarily due to major changes in the heart rate, which has the potential to increase by thirty (30) beats per minute for each degree increase in core body temperature. Pacemaker / Defibrillator: The magnets used to assemble the units of the sauna can interrupt the pacing and inhibit the output of pacemakers. If you have a pacemaker or defibrillator, you should not use this Sauna. Joint Injury: If you have a recent joint injury, it should not be heated for the first 48 hours or until the hot and swollen symptoms subside. If you have a joint or joints that are chronically hot and swollen, these joints may respond poorly to vigorous heating of any kind. Vigorous heating is strictly contra-indicated in cases of enclosed infections such as dental, in joints or in any other tissues. Fever: An individual that has a fever should not use any type of Sauna. Alcohol / Alcohol Abuse: Contrary to popular belief, it is not advisable to attempt to “Sweat Out” a hangover. Alcohol intoxication decreases a person’s judgment, therefore they may not realise it when the body has a negative reaction to high heat. Alcohol also increases the heart rate, which may be further increased by heat stress. Chronic Conditions / Diseases Associated with a reduced ability to sweat or Perspire: Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Central Nervous System Tumors and Diabetes with Neuropathy are conditions that are associated with impaired sweating. Consult your health care practitioner before using a Sauna. Haemophiliacs / Individuals Prone to Bleeding: The use of Infrared should be avoided by anyone who is predisposed to bleeding. Insensitivity to Heat: An individual that has insensitivity to heat should consult their health care professional before using a sauna. The temperature of the sauna can be set at lower temperatures. If in doubt, do not use any type of Sauna. Pregnancy: We do not recommend using Infrared sauna during any stage of pregnancy
