have improved detoxification properties. Burn up to 600 calories in just one 40-min session.

How to Prepare
Be prepared to sweat! A water bottle is advised to bring along with you and we are happy to
refill it for you. You may also want to bring some loose clothing and sandals to change into after
your sauna session. Your sauna is in a private room where you can change and store your
belongings. Other than that, we provide you with the necessary times needed for you to enjoy
our infrared saunas.
The sauna itself will have two face towels freshly placed before each session (one to sit on and
one to place your feet on) and we will be sure you have a full body towel to use as well. Again,
since you are in a private room for your sauna session, you can choose to undress and just wear
the towel in the sauna, wear a bathing suit, or wear workout type clothing. Most choose to just
use the towel. We also will provide a washcloth in a bowl of cool, aromatherapy water and a
little aromatherapy spray to use during or after your session. Our saunas can all comfortably fit
2 guests if you want to have a friend join you ($20 per additional guest per session).
NOTE: The temperature reading is not an indicator of the actual benefit received from the use of
the infrared sauna. You will still receive maximum benefit regardless of the ambient
temperature due to the penetration of the infrared rays into the body.
The infrared sauna is a great way to remove toxins, relax muscles, improve blood circulation,
increase your heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, soften skin, relax and rejuvenate
your mind! Saunas may also help reduce symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and can be
advantageous for muscle recovery after sports. People experiencing depression and anxiety
may also find sauna bathing helpful.
And according to Harvard Health Watch, the average person will lose a pint of sweat during a
brief visit to a sauna, and should drink plenty of water when they get out to help replenish.
