Our far infrared sauna uses light to create heat. “Far” describes where the infrared waves fall on the light spectrum. While a traditional sauna heats the air, which in turn warms your body, an infrared sauna heats your body directly without warming the air around you. Infrared induces sweating from the sebaceous glands, which is far more effective in expelling toxins than a hot air sauna. Because infrared saunas induce sweating at a lower temperature than traditional saunas, you can increase your time inside and maximize your results.
Far Infrared Saunas (FIS) heat the body from the core, allowing you to sweat out 7 times more toxins than traditional saunas. Because your head remains outside of the sauna itself, you will be more comfortable and able to experience more time in the sauna. FIS purifies the skin by cleansing the pores and eliminating accumulated cosmetics, blackheads, dirt, and dry skin. The skin is left with improved tone, brightness, texture, and elasticity. Studies show that you may burn over 1200-1400 calories in 60 minutes and that benefits were seen even in shorter 15-30-minute sessions. It is recommended to do sessions 3-5 times a week, and is a fabulous boost to any of our body-sculpting treatments.

Q . Are there any side effects to using infrared?
A. There are no side effects from infrared exposure. Studies show that the longer the exposure, the more health benefits experienced.
Q. How hot does it get in the sauna?
A. Our FIS operates at a maximum of 110 degrees. Traditional saunas may reach 190 degrees or more. Although the FIS temperature is considerably cooler, you may sweat more than you ever have before as the far infrared heats the body from the inside out.
Q. Is FIS safe?
A. FIS is completely safe. Far infrared waves are the healthful part of sunlight. They are not UV rays and do not damage the skin.
Q. How often should/can I use FIS?
A. The frequency depends on the condition you are treating or your goals. To detox we recommend 2-3 times per week.
