Our extra-large premium infrared sauna generates the same type of heat that is naturally produced by the sun and our bodies. This heat penetrates deep beneath the skin, creating a gentle warming sensation throughout the body, similar to spending a day in the sun – without the harmful UV rays. This provides a wide range of health benefits.
An Infrared Sauna session induces a deeper sweat that pushes out more toxins from the body, promoting healing on all levels, including at the molecular level. After an Infrared Sauna session, you will feel relaxed, detoxified, and rejuvenated.
Muscle Recovery & Pain Relief
Regular use of an infrared sauna can provide relief from discomfort associated with tight, overworked muscles and joints for both athletes and chronic pain sufferers. The increased circulation helps to clear waste products like lactic acid from the body and delivers oxygen-rich blood to muscles, resulting in faster muscle recovery.
Infrared saunas warm the body, which helps to relax muscles. This allows for deeper stretches, increasing flexibility and range of motion. The infrared sauna can also reduce muscle spasms, soreness, and inflammation in muscles and joints.
Not only that, the heat generated by infrared sauna helps to relax the muscle and increases blood flow which can help to reduce inflammation and pain associated with conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome.
During your sauna session, you can connect you device via Bluetooth into our surround system and listen to a podcast or music of your choice or you can choose to just quietly relax.
Weight Loss & Improved Metabolism
As your body’s temperature rises in an infrared sauna, it produces perspiration as a way to cool down, which raises your heart rate and pumps more blood into your body, improving circulation. This increase in metabolism leads to burning more calories!
A study showed that people who used the sauna 3 times per week found an average reduction in fat of about 4% over 4 months. These findings are not surprising given that a single infrared sauna session can burn between 400 and 600 calories! During the trial, neither the individuals’ food nor their exercise habits were altered.
It should be noted that Infrared sauna is not a replacement for a healthy diet or regular exercise, it should be used as a complement to a healthy lifestyle and the results may vary from person to person.
As you might know, we are exposed to toxins on a daily basis. Toxins can cause fatigue, pains, a variety of skin conditions, and a change in mood if they are not removed from the body. Infrared saunas stimulate sweat glands and improve blood circulation, which in turn aid in the removal of toxins through perspiration. Regular use of an infrared sauna can help eliminate toxins such as heavy metals like lead, mercury, and nickel, as well as alcohol, nicotine, and other harmful toxins.
Boosting Immune System
When you absorb infrared wavelengths in an infrared sauna, your body’s core temperature rises, which improves your cardiovascular, lymphatic, and immune systems. The heat induces an artificial fever, and when the body detects a fever, it goes into healing mode, strengthening and speeding up the immune response.
An improved immune system, combined with an increase in the body’s ability to eliminate toxins, may result in increased disease resistance. Regular use of an infrared sauna can help boost the immune system, reduce inflammation, and improve overall health.

Frequently Asked Questions
Traditional saunas use a heated stove or rocks to generate high temperatures (typically between 71°C to 93°C.
