About Medical Sauna
Why We Recommend It
An infrared sauna is a type of sauna that uses light to make heat. This type of sauna is sometimes called a far-infrared sauna. “Far” describes where the infrared waves fall on the light spectrum. A regular sauna uses heat to warm the air, which in turn warms your body. An infrared sauna heats your body directly without warming the air around you.
Generally, people like saunas because they cause reactions like those caused by moderate exercise, such as vigorous sweating and an increased heart rate. An infrared sauna gives these results at lower temperatures than does a regular sauna. This makes an infrared sauna a choice for people who can’t stand the heat of a sauna. But does that mean there are clear health benefits? Perhaps.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is this like a regular steam sauna?
Nope! Invisible light heats the body, not the surrounding air, so it is more comfortable and allows you to enjoy a longer session than with traditional steam saunas.
Is the infrared sauna safe?
Yes! Unlike sunbathing, exposure to infrared heat therapy is safe and won’t cause the skin to burn.
How long do you recommend for each infrared sauna session?
We recommend working your way up to 30- to 40-minutes. You will have the room for 50 minutes total, giving you enough time to freshen up and change upon completion.
Your sweating and detoxification continue after you get out of the sauna for about 30- to 60-minutes afterward, so it is not recommended that you shower right afterward as it will shorten the benefits of the detoxification process.
Please try our signature essential oil body mist and cool washcloths to wipe off toxins and leave you feeling refreshed and clean.
What do I wear in the sauna?
You can wear a bathing suit or a towel. You will be in a private room alone or with a known partner.
