It's a dry heat

what do you know about INfrared heat?

What to expect

Our Infrared Sauna combines the power of infrared heat with the power of salt. The floor of our sauna is lined with blocks of pink Himalayan Sea Salt. The salt helps pull out moisture from the sauna booth since our climate here in Lafayette is pretty wet. 

The regime is fully up to you! We can customize the length of the session and temperature just for you.

Some supposed benefits of using an infrared sauna included:

  • better sleep

  • relaxation

  • detoxification

  • weight loss

  • relief from sore muscles

  • relief from joint pain such as arthritis

  • clear and tighter skin

  • improved circulation

  • help for people with chronic fatigue syndrome

Things to know

  • Hydrate: Our bodies need water to survive. If you aren’t hydrated before stepping into a sauna, you could become dehydrated quicker. So, each day you plan on detoxing in our sauna, make sure your water intake increases by drinking plenty of water before, and after your sauna detox session. 

  • Choose the right temperature: We recommend you begin your detox session when our sauna reaches 100°F. The optimal sauna experience occurs between 100° and 130°F with beginners starting out at the lower end and more experienced users at the higher end. 

  • Set Time Limits: The amount of time spent in a sauna session may vary depending on your tolerance and daily activity level. We recommend starting with 10-15 minute sessions every other day, then working up to 40-minute daily sessions in the optimal temperature range. As with anything else, it’s important to listen to your body; excess sweating, nausea, fatigue, or flu-like symptoms means it’s time to step out and cool down. 

  • Rinse off: After each sauna session, it’s important to let your body cool down naturally rather than hopping in a cold shower. Dry off with a towel and keep hydrating until you feel your body return to its normal temperature.
