WHAT IS AN INFRARED SAUNA
Infrared sauna also called infrared therapy uses infrared heaters to emit infrared light experienced as radiant heat which is absorbed by the surface of the skin. Our Blissfusion wellness lounge saunas heat the body primarily by conduction and convection from the heated air and by radiation of the heated surfaces in the sauna room. Unlike a traditional sauna, infrared saunas don’t heat the air around you. Instead, they use infrared lamps (that use electromagnetic radiation) to warm your body directly. Some of the benefits of infrared sauna use are better sleep, relaxation, detoxification, weight loss, relief from sore muscles, relief from joint pain such as arthritis, clearer and tighter skin and improved circulation.
INFRARED SAUNA FAQ
How long do you recommend for each session?
It is important to work up in time with each session. We recommend you work your way up to 20-30 minutes. Detoxification continues after your session for around 30-60 minutes after.
What should I wear in the sauna?
You will be in a private room so you may wear what is comfortable to you. We do ask that you bring your own towel to sit on during your session.
Are there restrictions on who can use the sauna?
Yes. Those who are pregnant, under 12 years old, those with insensitivity to heat, and those under the influence of alcohol or who abuse alcohol are not recommended to use the sauna.
Is the sauna clean?
Yes! Our staff sanitize the sauna after each use. And as an added bonus the infrared lights help to kill bacteria as well.
How does the infrared sauna compare to regular steam saunas?
Infrared sauna uses light to heat the body instead of heating the surrounding air with hot steam, therefore it is more comfortable and you can enjoy a session for longer than a steam sauna.
