Increase Metabolism, Burn Calories & Lose Weight
As you relax in the gentle far infrared heat, your body is actually hard at work producing sweat, pumping blood, and burning calories. As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart will work harder to pump blood at a greater rate to boost circulation. This increase in your metabolism will burn calories. An article in the journal of the American Medical Association, concluded that a 30 minute infrared sauna session could burn up to 600 calories!
Relieve Pain & Heal Faster
Relieve inflammation, stiffness and soreness by increasing blood circulation and allowing the deep, penetrating infrared heat to relax muscles and carry off metabolic waste products, while delivering oxygen-rich blood to the muscles for a faster recovery.
Benefit the sore, damaged or tired muscles of an athlete by assisting muscle repair and help in the reduction of lactic acids, allowing tight and overexerted muscles to relax.
Warm the muscles for greater flexibility and range of motion, while relieving muscle tension and pain.
By reducing soreness on nerve endings, infrared heat reduces muscle spasms and helps the body heal itself naturally.
Find relief from injuries, fibromyalgia, joint pain/stiffness and other chronic pain conditions such as arthritis and Lyme disease with continuous use of infrared heat therapy.
Improves the Immune System
Raises your core body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. Fever is the body’s natural mechanism to strengthen and accelerate the immune response, as seen in the case of infection.
This enhanced immune system, combined with improved elimination of toxins and wastes via intense sweating, increases your overall health and resistance to disease.
Infrared Sauna heat increases your blood circulation and stimulates the sweat glands, releasing built up toxins (drugs, pollutants, pesticides, heavy metals etc.) in the body.
Infrared saunas allow you to eliminate 7 times more toxins than a traditional sauna.
Saunas also stimulate cells to release toxins which can then be eliminated by the liver, kidneys and bowel.
Reduces Stress, Fatigue, Depression and Anxiety
Relax as the stresses and tensions of every day life melt away! Just a few minutes in the gentle warmth and you’ll feel relaxed, rejuvenated and renewed.
Infrared saunas have been shown to affect the autonomic nervous system by putting the user in the parasympathetic (rest and digest) state, allowing the body to heal and restore itself.
The act of just sitting still and resting in the warmth of the sauna clears your mind. It’s a wonderful way to self-soothe and change the emotional and cognitive state in a relatively short period of time.
The profuse sweating carries off deeply embedded impurities and dead skin cells leaving the skin glowing and immaculately clean. Increased circulation draws your skin’s own natural nutrients to the surface. Improved tone, elasticity, texture and fresh color.
Reduces Blood Pressure
Reduces both systolic and diastolic blood pressure - both key factors in maintaining a healthy heart.
A report by The Journal of Cardiology concluded that repeated infrared sauna treatments improved blood vessel functions in patients with high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol.

The difference is the heat source. The traditional sauna uses electric or hot rocks to heat the air to between 180 to 220F which then heats the surface area of the skin. FIR (far infrared) uses state of the art carbon panels that create radiant heat between 100 to 140F that raises core body temperature from deep inside. This infrared light energy penetrates body tissues, muscles and organs up to 3 inches below the skin. The purpose of an infrared sauna is to give you maximum benefits at a lower temperature and for a longer session. While in a traditional sauna, many users experience light headedness, claustrophobia and difficulty breathing and then feel depleted. Alternatively, FIR users are incredibly comfortable and relaxed and then feel energetically rejuvenated. Trust us, it’s much different and much better!
First and foremost, infrared heat is Safe, Essential and Healthy for ALL living beings. In fact, hospitals across the USA have been using far infrared heat to keep newborn and premature babies warm for decades. Radiant heat is produced by the sun and our own bodies. We did extensive research before committing to the Sunlighten brand to ensure that we were providing one of the safest and most effective saunas on the market. Their clinically-supported solocarbon heaters, medical grade rating, years of experience and high quality materials are all exceptional.
The more skin exposed to the infrared, the better. Most people wear minimal athletic wear or a swimsuit. You may want to bring loose clothes to change into.
Aside from the clothing mentioned above, bring a large bath or beach towel (to place on the bench), and plenty of water or electrolyte enhanced drinks. We have bath towels to rent for $2 and electrolyte powder for $1. We provide a hand towel and a cold, eucalyptus infused face cloth. You may also want to bring a book (we have 2 books on the benefits of sauna use!) or music. The sauna comes equipped with a CD player/radio.
This answer will vary depending on your intentions and state of health. It is recommended that you ease into sauna use to give your body a chance to acclimate. Try our introductory package of 4 sessions (15min, 15min, 20min, 25min) ideally used within a two week period. Thereafter, you can pop in for either 15, 30 or 45 minutes. If you’ve used an infrared sauna recently, then come on in for regular sessions.
To truly detox and get optimal results, it is recommended to come 2-3 times per week. One time will help relieve stress and pain. For maintenance and self-care, most clients come 1-2 times per month
Don't be surprised if you don't sweat during the first few sessions. Sweating will increase with regular use. Since it is a deeper sweat, you won't necessarily notice the sweat until later in your session or after a few visits. This is also individual since every(body) is different.
The sauna is in a private room so you are able to change once you enter. We do not offer showers. It is recommended to let your body cool down naturally and your pores to close for at least 30 minutes after your session. Simply, dry off with a towel and save the shower for later.
Our sauna is a 3-seater, so one person can stretch out or 2 people can sit comfortably.
A 15 minute sauna session is perfect for inducing relaxation and for warming up muscle tissue so that it is more receptive prior to a massage to optimize the treatment. Post massage, you’ll further stimulate your circulatory and lymphatic systems, leading to a deeper detoxification. The heat therapy will open your pores and allow the quality oils to be absorbed. It’s also an amazing way to take the time and space to allow your bodywork to settle for maximum benefits.
Cool down naturally, then shower. Replenish with water and electrolytes. Enjoy your radiant skin and elevated mood :)
Like all professional equipment, you may put yourself at risk if you do not fully understand how to use the sauna. Infrared sauna use as creating a cure for or treating any disease is neither implied nor should be inferred. Consult with your physician if you are unsure if an infrared sauna is right for you. Drinking water and/or an electrolyte enhanced water is strongly recommended before and after use. We sell electrolyte powders (Non-GMO, gluten free, sugar free and vegan) to ensure balance.
If any of the below apply to you, consult your physician prior to sauna use:
Individuals suffering from obesity or with a medical history of heart disease, low or high blood pressure, circulatory problems or diabetes should consult a physician prior to use. Heat stress increases cardiac output and 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.
Individuals who are using prescription drugs should seek the advice of their personal physician since some medications may induce drowsiness, while others may affect heart rate, blood pressure and circulation. Diuretics, barbiturates and beta-blockers may impair the body’s natural heat loss mechanisms. Anticholinergics such as amitryptaline may inhibit sweating and can predispose individuals to heat rash or to a lesser extent, heat stroke. Some over-the-counter drugs, such as antihistamines, may also cause the body to be more prone to heat stroke.
Contrary to popular belief, it is not advisable to attempt to “sweat out” a hangover. Alcohol intoxication decreases a person’s judgment; therefore, he/she may not realize when the body has a negative reaction to high heat. Alcohol also increases the heart rate, which may be further increased by heat stress. The use of alcohol, drugs or medications prior to a sauna session may lead to unconsciousness.
The ability to maintain core body temperature decreases with age. This is primarily due to circulatory conditions and decreased sweat gland function. The body must be able to activate its natural cooling processes in order to maintain core body temperature. If elderly, operate at a lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time.
The core body temperature of children rises much faster than adults. This occurs due to a higher metabolic rate per body mass, limited circulatory adaptation to increased cardiac demands and the inability to regulate body temperature by sweating. When using with a child, operate at a lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time.
Multiple Sclerosis, Central Nervous System Tumors and Diabetes with Neuropathy are conditions that are associated with impaired sweating. Consult a physician.
The use of infrared saunas should be avoided by anyone who is predisposed to bleeding.
Individuals with insensitivity to heat or who have a fever should not use the sauna until the fever subsides.
Pregnant women should consult a physician before using an infrared sauna.
Heating of the low back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily increase menstrual flow. This should not preclude sauna use.
Recent (acute) joint injury should not be heated for the first 48 hours or until the swollen symptoms subside. Joints that are chronically hot and swollen may respond poorly to vigorous heating of any kind.
Metal pins, rods, artificial joints or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared waves and thus are not heated by this system. Nevertheless, you should consult your physician prior to using.
The magnets used to assemble our saunas can interrupt the pacing and inhibit the output of pacemakers. Please discuss with your doctor the possible risks this may cause.
In the rare event that you experience pain or discomfort, immediately discontinue sauna use.
