Benefits of Infrared Sauna Therapy
The use of heat therapies to detoxify the body is an ancient healing technique. An invisible band in the spectrum of light, infrared sauna therapy has a unique ability to heat the body at lower temperatures than traditional saunas. The radiant light penetrates deeply and creates healing on a molecular level.
Scientific studies have shown infrared to successfully treat many conditions, including cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue and pain, digestion issues, and depression.
Inner Light features top-of-the-line full-spectrum infrared saunas built with carbon heaters and hypoallergenic basswood that are medical-grade and proven the most effective in the marketplace. Each IR sauna has all three types of infrared light - near, mid and far rays - as well as chromotherapy lights, which use colors to change the frequencies of the body to enhance healing.
Types of Infrared Light
- Raises core body temperature, producing a deep detoxifying sweat at the cellular level
- Benefits: detoxification, blood pressure reduction, relaxation
- Shorter frequency range, penetrate the epidermis layer of the skin
- Similar to that used in cosmetic & healing devices
- Benefits: cell health & immunity, wound healing, skin rejuvenation, pain relief
- Similar to benefits of passive cardiovascular workout, stimulates blood flow
- Benefits: pain relief, improved circulation
All of our saunas offer chromotherapy, or color therapy, as an addition to regular infrared sauna use. Color and light have been recognized for their healing characteristics for thousands of years, and using color therapy in conjunction with infrared sauna treatment provides physical, emotional, mental and spiritual healing capabilities.
Each color utilized in chromotherapy has specific vibrations that help treat different parts of the body and distinct needs. In each sauna room, you will find a guide that shows you how to change the lights and the meaning and effects of each color.
What to Expect
After checking in at our front desk, you will be guided to one of our three private rooms, each with a full-spectrum infrared sauna. Before or after your sauna session, enjoy complimentary herbal iced teas in our Relaxation Area. We recommend wearing comfortable, loose fitting clothes, and arriving a few minutes before your session.
Inside the infrared sauna room, you will find two plush towels and a waffle robe, filtered alkaline water, and a booklet where you can discover chromotherapy and learn more about infrared. For 25 minute sessions, we recommend spending 15-20 minutes in the sauna and for 55 minute sessions, we recommend spending 40-45 minutes in the sauna. This allows for a few minutes to get changed, drink some water, and cool off afterwards.
The IR saunas are pre-set to detoxification mode, but using the Android tablet in each sauna, guests can customize their treatment with one of seven wellness programs and utilize apps to listen to calming or energizing music with Spotify or Pandora or meditate with Headspace. You can also choose to plug your phone directly into the speaker system in the sauna to play your favorite music or podcast.
You'll sweat deeply, enjoy a moment of quiet and relaxation, and leave feeling refreshed and energized!
