Infrared Sauna

Our Private Infrared Sauna uses radiant heat , rather than ambient temperature to heat you up.  Regular saunas heat the air to a very high temperature and the air, in turn, heats you.  Infrared Saunas use radiant heat from special panels that heat your body, as opposed to the air.  This can be similar to sitting next to a fire at the beach when it is cold outside, the air is cold, but you feel the radiant heat from the fire.  Our IR Sauna accommodates 1-2 people and is available for 20 minutes or 30 minutes, or as part of a Massage Package.

Benefits of Using The Sauna during the winter:

1. Our bodies were designed to sweat.  Sweating flushes toxins out of the body that are hard to clear in any other way. As you bathe in the heat of the sauna, your core body temperature rises and you begin to sweat. Your blood vessels dilate and lead, copper, mercury and lead amongst other trace chemicals are flushed from your skin. Not only do you begin to feel healthier, you start to look healthier.
2. It relieves stress and so leaves people feeling more relaxed and ‘less blue’. The sauna’s heat encourages your body to release endorphins, which are your own natural ‘feel good’ chemicals. Endorphins are similar to hormones and are released by the brain to fight pain and produce a feeling of wellbeing.
3. Well, there is evidence to suggest that regular sauna bathing significantly reduces the incidence of both colds and influenza.
When your body is exposed to the heat of a sauna, it produces white blood cells more rapidly, and it is the white cells that fight viruses and infections.
4. The sauna enhances circulation and oxygenates the cells, tissues and organs. It increases the body's ability to produce energy, which promotes healing. At the same time, heating the tissues speeds up the metabolism. Your cells are gradually capable of eliminating toxins much more effectively.

With the winter months and cold and flu season upon us schedule a session in our sauna to help promote wellness and healing.

 


What to Bring:

    • Sauna Apparel. Lightweight shorts and tee shirt are ok. Swim suits are better.
    • Bring two towels to place on the bench seat to absorb perspiration during your session. Wipe off sweat during your session to promote your body to sweat more. You must also place a towel under your feet to catch sweat drops because no sweat or oils may touch the wood.
  • Before using Infrared Saunas :
    • Take a warm shower and use a loofah, skin brush or exfoliating wash cloth to remove toxins from your body. Soaps containing oils, creams and lotions are Not Recommended as many contain chemicals which clog your pores. When your body is thoroughly clean, you may complete your session with a cold shower to cool your body completely and close the skin pores.
    • Do not use skin lotions or oils during your sauna session as this will inhibit sweating.
    • Stay  Hydrated! Most people do not drink enough water to begin with and now that you are using an infrared sauna and sweating, it is even more important to stay properly hydrated. A good rule of thumb is to divide your body weight by two and drink that many ounces of water on a daily basis. (160 lbs. divided by 2 = 80 ounces of water or eight 10 ounce glasses of water, daily) Always drink plenty of spring water or fruit juice before, during and after your sauna routine.
  • After your sauna session it is a good idea to sit or lie down for 10-15 minutes to allow the body to attain the full benefit of Infrared Therapy.  When you finish your sauna session, it is important to relax and cool down while your body continues to perspire. Sit or recline with a towel or robe around you for about 10 minutes.
  • Replace Electrolytes. Make certain that you are replacing the calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium which are depleted during sweating. If you take these minerals with your regular vitamins and supplements, it is probably not necessary to increase their consumption.

  • Turn your body fluid pH slightly alkaline. Most people today have an acidic blood and body fluid Ph which prevents optimum body healing and cell regeneration on many levels. Ph is a scale that measures how acidic or alkaline a substance is. The scale ranges from 1 to 14, with 1 being extremely acidic, 7 neutral and 14 very alkaline. The Ideal pH level for your saliva is around 6.9 to 7.2.
