What are infrared saunas?

 

Infrared saunas use infrared wavelengths to penetrate deep within the tissue, muscle and bones. Unlike traditional saunas that use heated rocks to increase the temperature of the air around you making it difficult to breathe, an infrared sauna uses invisible infrared wavelengths that mimic the way the sun produces heat to heat your core - making it a much more comfortable sauna experience. By penetrating deep into your body, these wavelengths encourage your core temperature to slowly rise allowing your body to gently remove the build-up of unwanted toxins in your system. 

Our infrared saunas are full spectrum meaning they emit Far, Mid and Near infrared wavelengths. 

 

 

Why should I use an infrared sauna?

Scientists have established that infrared waves are beneficial to the human body because they are easily absorbed, stimulating the lymphatic, immune and cardiovascular systems. Infrared saunas may be beneficial for a range of health conditions including:

  • Detoxification; deep liver + lymphatic support.

  • Improving skin tone; including cellulite

  • Support with skin conditions such as acne, eczema and dermatitis;

  • Muscle fatigue and recovery;

  • Water retention;

  • Energy production;

  • Weight loss;

  • Immune boosting;

  • Stress relief and mental health

  • Sleep management
  • Hormone management.

 

 

How often should I use infrared saunas? 

We recommend at least upwards of twice a week. It can depend on your goal or condition and you can use it daily if you wish. Infrared sauna session can be built into your weekly routine like you would exercise. If you are using the infrared sauna for different health protocols (e.g. a cleanse or detoxification program), it may help to sauna more frequently for greater results. If you have any questions at all about our saunas, don't hesitate to contact us.

Can I bring a friend?

You can definitely bring a friend to your sauna session. We have 2-person saunas. We charge an extra $15 per session per person, if you bring a friend.

Are the sauna rooms private?

Yes, our sauna rooms are 100% private and secluded. The room will be allocated to you for the entire time of your booking, we allot 1hour per booking for 45min sweat sessions. Each room has a small table and hook for you to hang your bag/clothing items.

What should I wear during my session?

All rooms are private so we welcome you to wear whatever you feel most comfortable in - which can be nothing at all. Please remember to remain seated on a towel during your session. 

Should I shower mid-way through my session if I get hot?

No, we do not recommend showering mid-way through your session. Infrared saunas are dry saunas and water can easily damage the saunas. We request that you please be seated on a towel throughout the duration of your session and be mindful of water inside the saunas. Should you wish you shower mid-way through a session we kindly ask you dry off completely before re-entering the sauna. If you don't mind staying a little sweaty post-sauna, we actually recommend waiting 30 minutes after a session to shower. Your body may continue to sweat for at least 30 minutes after a sauna session so best to wait until your body temperature cools down.

How are the saunas cleaned?

The saunas are thoroughly wiped down and cleaned between each sauna session. The saunas are made with Canadian cedar wood, which is also a natural antibacterial. Infrared lighting and the high sauna temperature are also natural disinfectants

Do you have shower facilities? 

We have a beautiful private outdoor rain shower that is hot or cold for you post sweat. If you don't need to shower immediately or if you don't mind staying a little sweaty post-sauna, we actually recommend waiting 30 minutes after a session to shower. Your body may continue to sweat for at least 30 minutes after a sauna session so best to wait until your body temperature cools down. This can mean the benefits work for longer.

We are also situated just across the road from Tallows Beach or the beautiful Tea Tree Lake. Both amazing post sweat rinse off options.
