QUESTIONS

Infrared Saunas

WHAT IS AN INFRARED SAUNA? ARE THEY SAFE?


While infrared is invisible to the human eye, it is a light wave that is next to the colour red on the electromagnetic spectrum. While we cannot see it we can feel it as heat. This infrared heat is what powers the infrared saunas. Infrared heat is regularly used in newborn incubators, heat lamps, and appliances such as toasters. Yes infrared saunas are safe. While traditional saunas use heated rocks to increase the temperature (which can also make it hard to breathe), infrared saunas heat the body directly, not the air, making it a very comfortable experience. In an infrared sauna your core temperature rises slowly, which gentle releases unwanted toxins from your body.




DO I NEED TO ARRIVE EARLY FOR MY SESSION?


Yes, we appreciate if you can arrive 15 mins before your scheduled session. We need a small amount of time between sessions to clean the rooms and setup for the next session so we ask that you exit your room when your session is complete. You’re more than welcome to spend some time in our lounge area after!




HOW LONG IS A SWEAT SESSION?


All of our sessions run for 45 minutes.




CAN I BRING A FRIEND?


Yes, our larger cabins (Rejuvenate and Recover rooms) can accommodate more than one person so you can bring a friend along if you’d like for an additional $35. Kindly note that sharing of saunas is temporarily suspended as a preventive measure for COVID-19.




WHO SHOULD BE CAREFUL WHEN USING INFRARED SAUNAS?


People with cardiovascular conditions or people who are prone to bleeding, people over 55 years old. Children under the age of 12 must be supervised when using the saunas. We do not recommend the sauna for pregnant women. Anyone suffering from health conditions, or anyone who is unsure about using the infrared sauna, should always consult their doctor before use.




HOW ARE THE SAUNA CABINS CLEANED?


Our saunas are cleaned in between each session with natural cleaning products. Other benefits of infrared heat is that it is a natural disinfectant and kills 99% of bacteria, meaning the saunas are a naturally clean environment.




HOW OFTEN SHOULD I USE AN INFRARED SAUNA?


The frequency of use does depend on what you wish to achieve from using our saunas, they can be used daily however we generally recommend visiting us 1-3 times a week to see improvements in your wellbeing.





Preparing for your session

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO THE SESSION?


Our saunas are completely private so you can wear whatever you feel most comfortable in. Most people just wear a towel while in the sauna however you can wear underwear or bathers if you prefer.




DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING WITH ME?


Just yourself and a comfortable change of clothes! We provide towels for use during your session. You can also choose to relax in our lounge before and after your session where you will find complimentary water and tea.




WHAT SHOULD I REFRAIN FROM?


We ask that you do not bring any plastic water bottles into the sauna rooms, there is filtered water provided in each of our sauna rooms for your convenience. In order to achieve the best results from your sauna experience we ask that you do not apply any skin products, lotions and oils, to your skin before your session.




WHAT SHOULD I DO DURING MY SESSION?


Your time in the sauna is a time for you to focus on you. Most people take the time to relax, read a book, or meditate while listening to music of your choice.





Our Studio

DO YOU HAVE SHOWER FACILITIES?


Yes, we do. However, we only have 1 shower facility and ask for your patience should there be someone else using it before you. We also recommend waiting 10-20 minutes after a session to shower. Your body may continue to sweat for at least 30 minutes after an infrared sauna session so it is best to cool down and wait until you get home.
