Infinity has recently added an infrared sauna to our treatment options at our Hermantown location. Infrared saunas are an effective tool for natural healing and prevention.
What is an infrared sauna?
Infrared saunas differ from traditional saunas with their use of infrared thermal light. These work to penetrate past your body’s skin barrier to raise your core temperature. Whereas traditional saunas have to first heat the air and then use that heat to bring up your body temperature.
Health benefits of infrared saunas include:
- Lower inflammation
- Weight loss
- Heart health
- Pain relief
- Cell health/immunity
- Wound healing
Please hydrate with 8 oz of water prior to your visit. Bring water bottle with you to bring in sauna. Three towels will be provided with your session: one to sit on and one to wipe off with during session and one wet one after the session.
Please note that you may not sweat the first few treatments. Different session lengths are available, but know that you can discontinue your treatment and exit the sauna at any time.*
*Clients should listen to their body and be aware of excessive detoxifying. If you begin to feel symptoms such as nausea, fatigue, or flu like symptoms during your treatment, you should discontinue use immediately. If these symptoms continue, consult a physician.
- Hydrate after session with 24 oz. of water
- Dry off with towels
- Schedule your next session
- Shower if you can at home after sessions
What should I wear in the sauna? Can I go nude?
You can go nude if you would like, but please be sure to put down the provided towel to absorb your sweat. Men typically wear workout or swim trunks; women typically wear workout shorts and a tank top or sports bra. You can also bring your own large towel to wrap yourself in.
