Unlike a traditional sauna, infrared saunas don’t heat the air around you. Instead, they use infrared lamps to warm your body directly. Infrared works by heating the body directly, warming us safely to create a cardiovascular workout on the body whilst removing heavy metals and toxins.
Using infrared saunas have been shown to:
Cleat and tighter skin
Aid in muscle recovery
Improve heart health
Reduce inflammatory markers
Relief from joint pain

Infrared sauna activates the para sympathetic nervous system leaving us calm and relaxed. Couple this with in-cabin red light colour therapy and a relaxing tea to enjoy your best night sleep in years.
A study published in Clin Rheumatol 2009 showed 8 sauna sessions provided short term improvement of pain, stiffness and a trend toward long term beneficial effects. This is one of many studies.
Infrared Sauna provides a natural boost in circulation with regular use attributed to weight loss. During higher temperature sessions, heart rate can reach 150bpm. Sustaining this level of work requires a calorie burn and commitment. To boost your weight loss results we recommend using your infrared sauna at least 3 times a week.
As a “passive aerobic workout” the body is receiving all the benefits of a workout, without being stressed in the same way as a normal workout. The body is relaxed and is in parasympathetic mode. As your body increases in temperature, it responds with sweat production in an effort to cool itself, which then increases heart rate and pumps more blood into the body, increasing circulation. This increase in metabolism results in burning more calories.
A study of people who used the sauna 3 times per week found an average reduction in fat of about 4% over 4 months. These results are not surprising since 1 infrared sauna session burns between 400-600 calories (depending on body type).
Infrared light has been shown to promote cell autophagy, a critical process our body undergoes to ensure cells are renewed and restored or killed off. Infrared keeps our circulation up whilst resting the muscles after a workout to help clear out lactic acid and bring vital nutrients and enzymes to the muscle for repair. Infrared sauna have also been shown to reduce inflammatory markers in the body.
Both athletes and chronic pain sufferers can find relief from pain associated with strained, overworked muscles and joints by using an infrared sauna regularly. Because increased circulation assists in the removal of waste products such as lactic acid from the body, while oxygen rich blood is delivered to muscles, these processes result in faster muscle recovery. Infrared saunas warm the body, which helps to relax muscles.
When your muscles are warmed, it allows for deeper stretches, increasing your flexibility and range of motion. Infrared Sauna can also help to reduce spasms, soreness and inflammation in muscles and joints. Daily use can bring much needed relief by reducing the symptoms of arthritis, bursitis, joint stiffness, sprains, strains and muscles spasms as well as musculoskeletal ailments.
