Infrared Sauna Q & A

Revive Medical Spa

What is an infrared sauna?

An infrared sauna is a type of sauna that uses light and heat to help you relax as it detoxifies your body. Infrared light waves create heat within your body and cause you to sweat out toxins that are trapped deep within your tissues.

Releasing these toxins helps to:

  • Decrease pain in your joints and muscles
  • Improve cardiovascular health
  • Minimize stress
  • Create anti-aging effects
  • Decrease inflammation
  • Heal wounds
  • Boost metabolism
  • Purify your skin

The benefits of an infrared sauna are numerous and take place in just a 15 to 20-minute session.

How does an infrared sauna work?

The infrared sauna is different from other types of saunas in that the infrared light heats your body, but doesn’t heat the air around you. As your body temperature increases, the air around you stays the same. As a result, infrared sauna therapy works at a lower temperature than a conventional sauna, where the heated air can make it hard to breathe easily.

Infrared sauna therapy is a great alternative for adults who want all the health benefits of sweating out toxins, but who are unable to withstand the high heat of a traditional sauna or steam room.

What happens during an infrared sauna treatment session?

Ardis Schmitt and her team at Revive Medical Spa have a HeatWave Saunas™ Buena Vista one-person sauna, so when you come in for your appointment, you’re by yourself. You sit comfortably in the sauna and relax while light energy comfortably heats your body. During your treatment, you may experience:

  • Increased or heavy sweating
  • Increased heart rate
  • Increased clarity and feelings of well-being that come from moderate exercise
  • Deep relaxation

The HeatWave infrared sauna uses the latest InfraWave FAR technology which emits an ultra low level of electromagnetic frequency (EMF) energy, so you safely get all the health benefits.

Who can benefit from infrared sauna therapy?

Anyone who wishes to become healthier and detoxify their body can benefit from an infrared therapy session. Those with chronic health conditions can also benefit from the infrared sauna. This therapy may be able to help you feel better if you suffer from any of the following:

  • Chronic arthritis pain
