Healing Arts Studio is home to a Clearlight full-spectrum infrared sauna. Infrared saunas use infrared wavelengths to heat the body, penetrating deep within your muscles and tissue. Unlike traditional saunas, infrared saunas heat your body directly, rather than the air around you, resulting in a more comfortable sauna environment. The infrared waves also allow your body to reach a higher heat than a steam sauna, which further promotes the sauna’s benefits including:
Sit back and relax while the sauna gets your body warm and working.
The infrared sauna is fitted with medical-grade chromotherapy lighting which increases the benefits infrared sauna sessions can provide. Chromotherapy relates to colour, specifically the benefits light and colour can have on our body, relying on the premise that each color is associated with a different bodily response.
Improvements in skin, swelling reduction, pain relief, decreased inflammation, muscle tension and spasms, and the detoxifying process are all benefits linked to chromotherapy. Color light therapy can be seen historically in Ancient Egypt, India, China, and even as far back as the Mayan culture.
Included in the sauna is access to Insight Timer – a meditation app which features thousands of guided meditation courses, talks and background sounds for you to choose from. With the sauna’s in-built speaker system this app enhances the experience creating a customisable environment to benefit your relaxation.
Alternatively, you can use your own device to stream audio books or podcasts during your session.
Our full spectrum Clearlight infrared sauna uses a combination of near, mid and far infrared wavelengths and is one of the best on the market.
Near-infrared is the shortest of the wavelengths, absorbed just below the surface of the skin. These rays increase sweat, promoting healing and revitalisation.
Mid-infrared uses slightly longer wavelengths, penetrating deeper into the soft tissue of the body. These rays increase our circulation, carrying and releasing oxygen throughout the body and assisting the healing of injury.
Far-infrared is the longest wavelength, penetrating fat cells in the body. This promotes vasodilation, a process which causes the cells to vibrate, allowing the removal of toxins from the body and stimulating our body’s metabolism which can result in weight loss. Many infrared saunas only utilise these far-infrared wavelengths, not incorporating near or mid wavelengths.
We currently offer 30 and 45 minute sessions in the infrared sauna.
Which is right for you? It’s all about preference.
Our standard session is 45 minutes with most new clients find this the perfect amount of time to experience and be introduced to the infrared sauna. If you find the 45 minute session too long or are needing a quicker session to fit into your busy day, try the 30 minute session. Both session times allow you to experience the benefits the sauna has to offer.
Bring a friend!
The sauna comfortably fits two, so feel free to bring a friend to your session. For online bookings, only one of the duo has to book and we can organise the details once you’re both here.
