Infrared Sauna Therapy In San Diego
Infrared sauna therapy is an effective, natural way to detoxify the body and help you achieve your health and wellness goals. Rather than warming the air around you, as traditional saunas do, infrared saunas emit light that penetrates the skin to create heat within the body. This raises your core temperature and causes you to sweat stimulating fat cells to release accumulated debris. Aside from detoxification, infrared saunas can be used for weight loss, relief from muscle aches and joint pain, reducing blood pressure, improving circulation, and purifying the skin.

Infrared Sauna Therapy FAQs
What is infrared?
Infrared is a form of light with wavelengths that are longer than those of visible light, making it invisible to the human eye. Though we can’t see infrared light, we can feel it on our skin in the form of heat. Infrared light has been proven effective by hundreds of studies all over the globe as having a wide variety of health benefits.
What is the difference between a traditional sauna and an infrared sauna?
Traditional saunas heat the air to an excess of 200F degrees, which can be unbearably hot when you’re trying to relax. Infrared saunas, on the other hand, heat the body directly and operate at a much more comfortable temperature of 100F – 150F degrees. Because infrared light penetrates the tissue directly, it’s been shown to be seven times more effective at detoxifying the body.
Is infrared heat safe?
Infrared heat is completely safe. Though it’s a naturally occurring output of the sun, you can be exposed to infrared light for hours without the risk of burning. No harmful UV rays are emitted in infrared saunas.
Can anyone use infrared saunas?
Infrared saunas are safe for most healthy adults. If you take prescription medications, be sure to mention them during your consultation, as some may impair the body’s natural heat loss mechanisms. Elderly adults can also use infrared saunas at a lower operating temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time.
What does infrared sauna therapy feel like?
The experience of being in an infrared sauna is similar to sunbathing on a warm day and feeling the heat radiate to your inner core. Infrared heat is very gentle compared to the harsh operating temperatures of traditional hot rock and steam saunas.
How should I prepare for an infrared sauna session?
Since infrared saunas involve a lot of sweating, it’s recommended to drink at least a half-liter of water before your session. You’ll also want to refrain from eating one to two hours prior to your session to ensure your body isn’t busy digesting under the stress of additional heat.
Is there any downtime afterwards?
A rest period of 10-30 minutes is recommended after each infrared sauna session. This helps the body transition back to homeostasis and decreases the chance of fatigue later in the day. Be sure drink plenty of water after your session to replenish the fluids lost through sweating.
