Infrared Sauna


Many of us have had the chance to experience the relaxation of a warm sauna, however few realize that there are actually a number of important health benefits that can be derived from regular sauna use. These include:


  • Detoxification

  • Weight Control

  • Stress Reduction

  • Immune System Support

  • Cardiovascular Conditioning

  • Pain Relief

  • Cellulite Reduction

  • Skin Cleansing


Unlike conventional saunas which use ambient heat and only heat the air, F.I.R. (Far Infra Red) saunas provide radiant heat, warming the object directly. This provides a deep penetrating heat, creating a sauna affect from within and pulling toxins from subcutaneous fat storage directly into our sweat. It can also help by eliminating excess lactic acid, often associated with muscle stiffness and pain, as well as excess acidity in the body.



How to Prepare for your Sauna Appointment

Please note that cigarette smokers are not permitted in the sauna. The wood absorbs the nicotine when it is released from your body and may cause an allergic reaction to other clients and may also damage our sauna. 

  • Bring a reusable water bottle that you can take in with you or leave outside of the sauna.

  • Drink plenty of water before you come. It is advised not to eat at least 1-2 hours prior to your appointment to avoid feelings of nausea.

  • Do not use any chemicals or lotions prior to your appointment. These items may block pores and affect perspiration as well as stain the wood of the sauna.

  • It is advised to avoid using fleece or nylon sweat suits. You can wear just a regular t-shirt and shorts, a bathing suit, or you can just wrap yourself up in a towel/go nude. You are in there by yourself so no one can see you!

  • The use of drugs, medication or alcohol prior to your appointment may lead to dizziness or unconsciousness. 

  • Clients using any medications should consult their doctor prior to use of the sauna. 

  • Pregnant women should consult their physician prior to using the sauna. Excessive body temperatures can be harmful to the baby.

  • Clients suffering from obesity or with medical history of heart disease, low or high blood pressure, diabetes or circulatory problems should consult a physician prior to using the sauna.

  • No clients under the age of 18 are permitted in the sauna unless accompanied by a supervising adult.

  • Please note that we do not have a shower.
