What is an Infrared Sauna Session?
Infrared saunas penetrate the skin on a deeper level than traditional saunas and are believed to have improved detoxification properties. Burn up to 600 calories in just one 40-min session. Relax and rejuvenate while you sleep, meditate, or just pop in an iPod and listen to music or a audio book.
How to Prepare
First of all, be prepared to sweat! A water bottle is definitely advised to bring along with you and we’re happy to refill it with our reverse osmosis water here at the spa. You may also want to bring some loose clothing and sandals to change into after your sauna session. Although we do not have showers or lockers at our spa, your sauna is in a private room where you can change and store your belongings. Other than that, we provide you with everything you need 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’ll 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 ($15 per additional guest)
We also have recently added in our Yoga Sauna at our Mission Valley location! The Yoga Sauna can be used like all of our other Infrared Saunas, but you also have the option to practice yoga during your 40-minute session with the extra space. You will have all the room you need to integrate deep stretching into your session or have a couple friends join you* (can fit up to 4 people!), plus it is ADA Compliant. Please keep in mind that if you intend to do yoga in the sauna you can drop the temperature to 110-125 degrees to ensure you do not get over-exerted.
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 Yoga Sauna is only $50 for a single session or just a $10 upgrade from our standard sauna sessions, if you have a membership or package already. Our Luxe VIP Members may book the Yoga Sauna room complimentary as part of your membership benefits ; – )
What to Expect
Infrared is the band of light we perceive as heat. Our infrared saunas use ceramic infrared heaters to penetrate the skin on a deeper level, providing all of the health benefits of natural sunlight, without the dangerous effects on the skin.
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!
