What is an Infrared Sauna?

The sun’s spectrum is a combination of visible light and invisible light. The seven colours of the rainbow are visible lights, and infrared lights are the invisible parts. Infrared lights are the healthiest, safest and heat the body directly by penetrating deep within your tissues and muscles producing many health benefits.

Infrared Sauna’s offer a dry pleasant heat with no humidity and a more comfortable experience, using temperatures between 40-70°C. It is more bearable for people who cannot tolerate the heat of a traditional sauna.

Our Infrared Sauna has the added benefit of therapeutic Chromotherapy for maximum relaxation and detoxification.

Benefits of an Infrared Sauna

Reduce stress & fatigue

The warmth from the infrared sauna can help you feel relaxed, rejuvenated and renewed after each session. They also affect the autonomic nervous system putting you in the parasympathetic (rest and digest) state allowing your body to heal.


A fever is the body’s natural mechanism to strengthen and accelerate the immune response, as seen in the case of infection. This enhanced immune system combined with improved elimination of toxins and wastes through sweating, increases your overall health.

Skin purification

The profuse sweating achieved in the infrared sauna can help purify your skin by eliminating toxins from your pores, leaving the skin glowing. Increased circulation draws your skins own natural nutrients to the surface.


Sweating is one of the body’s natural ways to eliminate toxins, making it a crucial part of detoxification.

Releive stiffness, aches & pain

Infrared heat can relieve inflammation, stiffness, and soreness by increasing blood circulation to relax your muscles.

Increased Circulation

Heating the muscles with infrared rays produces an increase in blood flow similar to that seen during exercise. If you suffer from muscle aches or joint pain, infrared saunas may help to relieve the inflammation by increasing circulation and relaxing your muscles.

What is Chromotherapy?

Chromotherapy is also known as Colour Light Therapy, a therapy that uses the visible spectrum, which we know as colours. A process of restoring balance and harmony to the body by applying colour.

It is a great way to revitalise and energise, or calm your body and mind. The energy of colours affects us on all levels; physically, emotionally and spiritually. Colours are all vibratory; each one has its own wavelength. The body recognises these waveforms and responds to them, the way we perceive colour is because of its own vibration that it holds.

How to


  • Drink plenty of water before, during and after your sauna session to replenish fluids lost through perspiration.
  • If you can, avoid drinking coffee before your session. As it is a diuretic and can contribute to dehydration. Limit food intake an hour before your infrared sauna session. This allows the body to detox more effectively because it will not be using that energy for digestion.
  • Our sessions go for 30-45 minutes.
  • Do not apply oils, lotions or creams as they may decrease perspiration by blocking the pores. Therefore, it is best to go into the sauna with clean, dry skin.
  • Towelling off during your session will keep the pores open for the body to perspire more.
  • After your session is over, it’s always best to wear loose fitting clothes to accommodate continued perspiration.
