We've been talking about it for months, but everything finally came together and our IF Sauna has been installed!
If you have never used an infrared sauna, you're really missing out!
Infrared Saunas have been proven to help detoxification, improve pain, decrease inflammation, promote weight loss, help with signs of aging, improve muscle recovery, improve sleep, improve immunity, and improve many other aspects of health.
How long is a session?
Sessions run between 35-45 minutes.
What does it feel like?
Unlike a traditional sauna (150+ degrees), IF sauna's remain below 140 degrees. Most people sweat, but not profusely. The lower temperature allows for a longer, more beneficial session.
Will I get a sunburn?
No, IF rays do not harm the skin, nor will they give you a tan.
What do I wear?
Most people sweat during their session, so swim or athletic wear is appropriate. Your skin does not to be fully exposed during a session and our staff need to be able to enter the room at any time. Basically wear something you're comfortable being seen in and that our staff will be comfortable seeing you in. We also ask that you bring a towel.
What will it cost?
An individual session is $45, but for the month of March (while we're working out all the kinks in our operating procedures) individual sessions will be $35. Eventually, we will have packages available (including unlimited).
Can I get adjusted, use the Pulse table, and other therapies on the same visit?
YES! IF Saunas and chiropractic go together like peas and carrots! You may prefer to use the sauna before, or after your visit. Just like working out and massage, for most people it won't matter the order, but for a some people they/or their doctor will have a preference.
As for Pulse, we plan of creating an Unlimited Pass that will allow you to use both therapies at a discounted price.
Who can benefit from regular IF Sauna use?
The short answer is EVERYBODY.
The long answer is that for a typical, health-minded person, they will get the benefits above.
For our patients with chronic disorders: fibromyalgia, chronic skin conditions, inflammatory autoimmune conditions, and chronic pain conditions, there has been promising research that these conditions can be helped tremendously with regular use. This is the reason that we chose this modality--we are always looking for ways to better serve our chronic group (not that we just like our toys, although we do REALLY like our toys).
How do I schedule?
Call/email/ask next time your at the office. When our new EHR is up and running, you'll be able to schedule/cancel/reschedule sessions online.
We chose Sunlighten for our Sauna as they use non-toxic wood, have low EMFs, and are dedicated to researching and improving their products.
