Frequently Asked Questions
Sweating is a great way to help realize your personal fitness, wellness and beauty goals. By increasing circulation, your body benefits from a number of positive effects, such as glowing skin, pain relief, weight loss, stress relief, increased athletic performance, improved immune function, injury recovery and more.
While traditional dry saunas and steam saunas are excellent for your health, they are uncomfortable. Infrared heats your body from the inside out, allowing you to sweat more comfortably, and therefore longer, resulting in a more productive sweat.
Infrared is simply a light wave next to the color red on the electromagnetic spectrum that is invisible to the human eye, but felt as heat. Some common examples of infrared heat are found in incubators for newborns, heat lamps and toasters.
The only people who should not sweat are pregnant women, those with pacemakers and, although rare, those who have an inability to sweat.
Infrared saunas heat you very gently and slowly, making it a very peaceful experience for most people. You may find that you do not sweat for the first 10-15 minutes, or not very much at all your first time. With increased usage you will likely notice an increased ability to sweat more productively. After sweating you will feel great. You may notice glowing skin, diminished wrinkles, muscle and injury relief as well as a sense of relaxation.
