FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

What is infrared light?

Infrared light is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum. The heat penetrates the skin, warms your body from the inside out, and helps to eliminate the build up of toxins in your body. Infrared heat is gentle on the skin and provides all the healthy benefits of natural sunlight without any of the dangerous effects of solar radiation.


How is an infrared sauna different from a conventional sauna?

Far-infrared waves penetrate 2 inches or more into our body, raising the core body temperature and producing a deep and detoxifying sweat. Infrared saunas operate at a lower, more tolerable temperature.


What are the benefits?

The benefits of infrared saunas run the gamut in health and wellness. Some of them include: weight loss, detoxification, pain relief, quicker muscle and injury recovery, improved circulation, improved skin appearance (can improve acne as well), lowered blood pressure, stress relief, improved sleep

Is my sauna session private?

It can be, or you can book a double occupancy suite with a friend. Your sauna experience will be private and uninterrupted.


What should i Wear?

The less the better to allow maximum skin exposure. This could be a bathing suit, shorts and a tank, or go “au naturel” for a more liberated sweat (we don’t judge). You can wrap yourself in a towel that we provide for each guest. It’s all up to you.


Are there showers?

No. Your body continues to sweat for approximately 30 minutes after your session ends. We recommend showering after your body has cooled down and you have hydrated sufficiently.


How often should I visit SweatFX?

At least twice a week is ideal, but you can book a session as often as you like! It is a great complement to your exercise routine, and also perfect for a rest or recovery day.


Are the saunas sanitary?

Health and hygiene is our priority! The heat and infrared light of our saunas are naturally disinfecting and kill bacteria.  We also lay towels on the bench that are changed between each session, as well as provide individual towels for each guest.  In addition, the rooms are cleaned and sanitized between each visit with non-toxic supplies, to insure you enjoy the best experience.


Who shouldn’t use the saunas?

Infrared saunas impart amazing benefits, however, if you are unsure, you should consult with your physician before booking a session. Do not use if you are pregnant or elderly, have serious inflammation, cardiovascular conditions, a fever, a communicable disease, hemophilia, or are intoxicated or dehydrated. You should consult with your physician regarding certain medications, or if you have a sensitivity to heat, or a condition that affects your body’s ability to sweat.


How long is a session?

Sessions are 40-minutes. We also include 5 minutes for preparation and up to 10 minutes after for cool down.
