Infrared Sauna blankets are a compact and easy to use version of a classic infrared sauna. It uses infrared timed heat (far-infrared heat) to cause the body to sweat and release toxins along with other numerous benefits.
Every day, a new health and wellness trend to make us look better and feel better pops up, but are they really worth the hype? We know for a fact that far-infrared is incredibly beneficial to not only your immune system, but it also has a never-ending list of benefits to your body.
As far-infrared comes from the sun, it penetrates deeply into the skin to help dissolve unwanted substances that have accumulated in the body. The infrared rays have the power to revitalize your cells and metabolism.
Infrared Sauna blanket uses Infrared waves that penetrates deep into our body and activate the sweat glands. The sweat glands are one of the tools that the body uses to eliminate toxins. The skin is actually the largest organ of the human body and has been called many times; “the third kidney” because of its ability to discharge large amounts of waste material through the sweat glands. It is one of the best mechanisms the body has for elimination of toxins and waste.
Tests have shown that the energy output of far-infrared sauna blanket is tuned so closely to the body’s own radiant energy that our bodies absorb as much as 93% of the far-infrared waves that reach our skin.
By comparison, conventional sauna's must rely only on indirect means of heat: first, on convection (air currents) and then, conduction (direct contact of hot air with the skin) to produce its heating effects. Our Infrared Sauna Treatment reaches temperatures of approximately 180°F.
The wavelength of this light, referred to as far-infrared radiation (FIR), cannot be perceived by the human eye and is an invisible form of electromagnetic energy . The body experiences this energy as radiant heat, which can penetrate up to 1 to 2 inches beneath the skin.
• Promotes weightloss

• Improves blood flow
• Detoxification & neurotoxin elimination
• Produces collagen & elastin
• Builds immune system

• Lowers blood pressure
During your consultation, we will discuss your goals and tailor a treatment plan that aligns with your needs. Once we have completed your consultation, you will be asked to relax inside an infrared suna blanket for about 1 hour while infrared heating technology is applied.
Once treatment is done you will be givven a clean sanitized towel to dry off the access sweat on your skin.
After treatment you can experience some dehydration so bottle water is provided before leaving. An extra change of cloths is allowed but not necessary since some disposable clothing is provided before treatment.
Heat can still be felt for about 1 to 2 hours after treatment. It's been reported that a sense of comfort and relaxation is felt upon leaving.
Infrared is a revolutionary technology that has changed the way many heat their homes. Now, it is being used in various beauty treatments, spas and of course – saunas. Far infrared therapy was pioneered by NASA in space shuttles back in the 1980’s to maintain the cardiovascular fitness of astronauts. However, you can find what’s known as ‘sweat therapy’ dating back thousands of years.
Far-infrared rays are found on the electromagnetic spectrum, and are invisible waves of energy that have the ability to penetrate multiple layers of the human body. It is naturally occurring and is completely safe for the body, in fact, it is partially how the Sun heats the Earth. With far-infrared technologies, however, whether this be our trusty panels or IR sauna blankets, there will be no detrimental UV rays meaning that they are 100% safe.
Infrared radiation is an invisible form of electromagnetic energy, the wavelength of which is longer than that of visible light. Infrared radiation can be categorized into three groups according to wavelength, namely near infrared, middle infrared, and far-infrared. Infrared radiation probably enables multiple forms of energy to be transferred into subcutaneous tissue without stimulation or excessive heating.
In one study, skin temperature increased to 38–39℃ after FIR treatment for 30 min to 1 h with 20 cm of spacing between ceramic plates and the skin. Thus, FIR therapy may yield none of the side effects of traditional thermal therapy, such as infection or burn injury, and has therefore been widely employed to promote health.
Unlike traditional saunas, which apply heat to warm the body by increasing the ambient air temperature, FIR saunas heat the body directly without employing the air as a heat transfer medium. In a previous study, sauna therapy was performed using an FIR dry sauna device at 60℃ for 15 min, followed by traditional warm keeping for 30 min.
Although previous studies have shown that FIR radiation produces thermal and non-thermal effects, such as increasing artery blood flow and peripheral blood circulation, improving endothelial function, alleviating fatigue and pain, reducing blood pressure, and promoting capillary dilatation, the precise mechanism has yet to be thoroughly understood.
