(110°F to 140°F; No humidity)
WORLD SPA’s infrared sauna is pretty as a picture, crafted artfully from Alder wood with infrared heating elements placed under the benches and targeted to treat your back and spine with maximum heat and minimum sweat.
And, because infrared saunas are not as hot or as humid as our saunas or banyas, this is the one room where it’s okay to grab a selfie of you and your friends enjoying your spa day. (Please be mindful not to impose upon our other guests as you “strike a pose”.)
Infrared saunas use light to create heat at a lower and more comfortable temperature. The infrared band of light penetrates your body directly, without warming the air around you. Because it’s not red hot inside an infrared sauna, most are able to withstand the heat longer, getting even more of the therapeutic effects of this deep heat penetration.
Benefits of infrared sauna bathing are extensive, including helping to relieve inflammation, stiffness and soreness by increasing blood circulation. The deep, penetrating infrared heat relaxes muscles and delivers oxygen-rich blood to the muscles for a faster recovery.
How to use
Because this room doesn’t get as hot as a traditional sauna, you can enjoy it for longer periods of time (25 to 45 minutes). Before, during and after, be sure to drink plenty of water or tea. If it’s your first visit, you may not necessarily break a sweat but it will still be good for you! After visiting the infrared sauna, it’s important to relax and cool down and then take a shower.
