Our Infrared Sauna can be enjoyed as a standalone treatment with many health benefits, or a relaxing addition to a massage. Schedule your sauna before or after your massage, whichever you prefer.

As the Finnish, Ancient Greeks and Romans, Native Americans, and Koreans have known for hundreds of years, saunas (or sweat lodges) have myriad health benefits. Most of these benefits stem from the processes the body goes through to regulate temperature, which in many ways are similar to the cardiovascular benefits from exercise. Sweating, in addition to being the way the body cools itself, is also one of the ways toxins are removed from the body—so the profuse sweating that happens in a sauna is an extremely effective natural detoxifier.

Infrared saunas are similar in many ways to steam saunas, but unlike a traditional steam sauna that heats the air in the room, Infrared Saunas have a gentle heat that impacts the body directly. This raises the core temperature more effectively and at a lower (i.e. more comfortable) room temperature. This type of heat is used in neonatal ICU incubators, a testament to its gentleness and efficacy.

FEATURES
Our infrared sauna features three colored lights, which can be used alone or in combination. To customize the healing potential of the sauna, choose the chromotherapy best suited for you.

Our sauna features Chromotherapy (or “Color Therapy”) lights. Like the sauna itself, chromotherapy is based on ancient wisdom and healing practices, and stands up to modern scientific inquiry. Colors have an impact on our sense of well-being, and can be used for specific types of rejuvenation.

For further information, please read the fascinating critical analysis of Chromotherapy and its scientific evolution, from the peer-reviewed journal “Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine.”

WHAT TO EXPECT

  • 1-2 Hours Prior to Your Session:  Do not eat, but drink 1-2 glasses of water.
  • We provide towels.
  • Temperature is adjustable. We preheat it to 130ºF

A typical sauna session

In the 1-2 hours prior to your session, refrain from eating-- but do drink at least 1-2 glasses of water. When you arrive at Resolution, we will get you water you can bring into the sauna, show you the sauna, and explain how the heat and chromotherapy controls work. We'll make sure you have towels, warm hand towels (for cleansing before/after the sauna), and a spa robe. You can keep the room silent, listen to our relaxing music, or we'll help you connect your own music via a bluetooth speaker.

We preheat the sauna to 130 degrees, but you can adjust the temperature to your comfort level (for beginners, we recommend 115-130 degrees.) Our sauna responds to thermostat changes quickly, and can be controlled from inside the sauna, so you can adjust as needed throughout your session.

Depending on how warm you are when you arrive, it may take 5-10 minutes to begin sweating in the sauna. Relax, enjoy the soothing chromotherapy lights, and adjust the temperature if needed. Continue to drink water while you are in the sauna. If you get lightheaded or feel ill, exit the sauna and drink more water.

Feel free to use our dry towels, heated moist towels, and/or cleansing towelettes to freshen up after you exit the sauna. Continue to rehydrate with water here and after you leave. If you're having a massage after your sauna, we'll provide a spa robe so you can comfortably leave the sauna room and enter your treatment room without having to redress and undress again.
