An infrared sauna is a type of sauna that uses infrared heaters to emit radiant heat directly onto the body, offering a more targeted and efficient heating experience compared to traditional saunas. Infrared wavelengths penetrate deeper into the body, promoting relaxation, improving circulation, aiding in muscle recovery, and supporting detoxification through increased sweating. Infrared saunas operate at lower temperatures, making them more comfortable for individuals who may find traditional saunas excessively hot.

Infrared saunas promote the elimination of metabolic waste products through two main mechanisms. Firstly, the heat increases blood circulation, aiding in the efficient  transportation of oxygen and nutrients while facilitating the removal of waste products produced by cells. Secondly, induced sweating, a response to the heat, further assists in the excretion of metabolic waste through the skin. Together, these processes contribute to the body's natural detoxification mechanisms, promoting the elimination of substances like lactic acid and urea.

Cortisol, commonly known as the "stress hormone," is produced by the adrenal glands and is pivotal in the body's stress response. Research from the "Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine" in 2011 indicates that utilising infrared saunas may notably decrease cortisol levels. These saunas contribute to stress reduction by fostering physical relaxation and influencing stress hormones, such as cortisol. Additionally, the warmth generated by infrared saunas boosts the release of endorphins, enhancing an overall sense of well-being.

Infrared saunas offer benefits for both muscle relaxation and improved skin health. They induce muscle relaxation by promoting increased blood circulation and oxygenation, as supported by studies in the "Journal of Clinical Rheumatology" (2009) and the "World Journal of Orthopedics" (2016). This suggests positive outcomes for alleviating muscle tension and soreness, making infrared saunas therapeutic for various musculoskeletal conditions. Simultaneously, improved skin health during infrared sauna sessions is facilitated by enhanced blood circulation and sweating. Studies in the "Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy" (2012)  indicate potential positive effects on skin texture, tone, and wound healing.


Infrared saunas can benefit a diverse range of individuals. From athletes seeking muscle recovery, to those suffering with joint pain such as arthritis, to individuals just after a bit of relaxation and stress relief, the benefits of an infrared sauna are endless. However, it's crucial for individuals, especially those with health conditions, to consult healthcare professionals before incorporating infrared saunas into their routine to ensure safety and suitability. Here are some general considerations:

Post-Session Cooling Period:
To maintain safety and prolong the lifespan of your sauna, allow the heaters to cool down for at least 15 minutes after each session. This cooling period helps prevent overheating and ensures the sauna remains a safe environment.

Automatic Shut-Off Feature:
Our infrared saunas are equipped with an automatic shut-off feature that activates if the heaters are used excessively, particularly if operated continuously throughout the day. This is designed to prevent overheating of the electrical components, ensuring your safety and protecting the integrity of the sauna’s systems.

Please adhere to these guidelines along with those provided in the sauna manual to ensure your
safety and maximise the benefits of your infrared sauna experience.

Who can use an Infrared Sauna?

Children over the age of 6 may use the sauna, under the supervision of an adult. It is important that children are not left unattended or allowed to play in the sauna. On the other hand, elderly individuals should exercise caution when using saunas, as certain health considerations may pose risks.

Pregnant women are advised to avoid using infrared saunas, due to the potential risks of elevated body temperature, dehydration and cardiovascular stress.

It's crucial for individuals with medical conditions to seek professional medical advice before using and Infrared sauna, ensuring that the activity is safe and suitable for their specific health needs.

Hyperthermia can occur when the internal temperature of your body reaches a level several degrees above normal body temperature of 37oC (98.6°F). The symptoms of hyperthermia include an increase in the internal temperature of the body, dizziness, lethargy, drowsiness, and fainting.

How to take care of your Infrared Sauna

Ensure a certified electrician installs a dedicated outlet for the sauna, as failure to do so may impact its operating performance. Before connecting the sauna to a power source, check that all wires, cords, and connections are properly secured. Plug the sauna into a dedicated wall power outlet, avoiding sharing the same outlet with other appliances. Install the sauna on a completely level and dry surface, protected from adverse weather conditions. A crucial warning emphasizes that, to minimise the risk of electrocution and burns, the sauna should not be operated unless the heater guard is correctly in place. Please see our manual for more details regarding installation.

Now you have your brand new sauna set up, we’re going to give you a few helpful ways in how you can keep it clean. Of course, when you’re in an infrared sauna, you will be producing sweat. Due to this, we recommend sitting on a towel to absorb it. The floor of the sauna can become slippery if you are sweating excessively, so ensure you wipe the floor with a towel when you stand to leave. Towels should not be left in the sauna as they pose a potential fire risk.To keep your sauna clean, you can use a soft, dry cloth to dust and wipe down the interior and exterior surfaces, including benches, walls, and the floor. We recommend not to use any water in the sauna, but if there are stubborn stains a damp cloth may be used. The infrared panels can be dusted gently, avoid using any abrasive materials that may damage the heaters. Ensure you clean the sauna when the power is off!

Your safety when in the Infrared Sauna

For beginners using an infrared sauna, it is recommended to start with short sessions of 10-15 minutes and gradually increase the duration by 5 minutes in subsequent sessions. Listen to your body, stay hydrated, and avoid overexertion. Individual tolerance to heat varies, so prioritise comfort and well-being. Regularly monitor your body's response and consult with a healthcare professional if you have concerns or pre-existing health conditions.

Pay attention to how your body responds during and after each session. If you feel lightheaded, overly fatigued, or uncomfortable, it's essential to exit the sauna and cool down.

Drink water before, during, and after your sauna session to stay adequately hydrated. Infrared saunas induce sweating, leading to fluid loss. We recommend taking in a water bottle, rather than a cup/glass to avoid any accidental spills that may damage your sauna.

It's important to note that individual tolerance to heat can vary. Factors such as age, overall health, and personal preferences play a role in determining the ideal duration for sauna sessions. Always prioritise your comfort and well-being, and consult with a healthcare professional if you have any pre-existing health conditions or concerns. Regularly monitoring your body's response and adjusting the duration accordingly will help ensure a safe and enjoyable infrared sauna experience.
