Experience our infrared sauna at our Oconee location!
Infrared light therapy is a groundbreaking tool that can penetrate the deepest layers of the skin, leading to beneficial results. Infrared saunas work by heating the body’s core temperature to create an internal fever, which allows your body to detox on a cellular level. It provides a much more efficient and productive session as compared to a traditional sauna. We offer full-spectrum infrared sauna treatments that utilize near, mid, and far wavelengths to maximize the health benefits associated with infrared therapy. It is natural, safe, and does not cause any pain to those in the sauna. This non-invasive treatment is quick and effective and requires no downtime afterward.
Triggers vasodilation – our blood vessels relax and widen. Vasodilation triggers a cascade of physiological responses:
- Decreases blood pressure.
- Increases blood circulation.
- Delivers more oxygenated blood through your system.
- Increases nutrient delivery.
- Decreases swelling, inflammation and pain.
- Increases muscle flexibility.
- Allows for more efficient waste and toxicant removal.
- Accelerates healing and your metabolism.
- Boosts immune function.
In an infrared sauna, our bodies automatically exit sympathetic mode (fight or flight) and enter parasympathetic mode (rest and digest). The parasympathetic nervous system helps produce a state of equilibrium in our bodies. Everything relaxes, gets more flexible. You don’t have to force yourself to relax; it happens automatically. Let your body be your guide! Pay attention to your body and you will feel when you’re ready to end your sauna session. If you ever don’t feel good in an infrared sauna, just get out.
Since infrared light does not affect electronics, you are welcome to bring what you like. While some people bring nothing and relax the entire session, others like to bring a book or their phone for entertainment. It’s entirely up to you how you’d like to enjoy your session!
Each session lasts for 45 minutes. Depending on what you’re comfortable with, you’re welcome to wear loose, breathable clothing or use the towels provided to wrap around you for the most effective detox. If you are relaxing with friends, we suggest bringing a swimsuit.
Please remove any lotions or oils before your session. This ensures the best possible outcome with infrared light therapy.
A Chilled towel with aromatherapy will be provided for you to cool off with at the end of your session.
While the majority of people can safely use our private sauna, we are unable to allow pregnant women and minors in the infrared session. If you have a pacemaker or another condition, we always recommend consulting your physician before use.
