Infrared sauna therapy is the latest innovation of the sauna industry! Forget the hot, steamy and claustrophobic atmosphere of the hot-rocks-and-water - infrared heat is comfortable yet customisable to your specific needs.
Our love affair with infrared saunas began with the founder of Pure Wellness Studio, Nadia. Infrared sauna sessions were essential to Nadia's healing and recovery process during a very difficult and traumatic time in her life. Not only did regular sweats make her body feel great, but they helped to clear her mind and keep her on the road back to better mental health.
She went on to open Pure Wellness Studio and offer infrared sauna therapy to her clients so that they could experience the same incredible healing benefits. Based on the feedback we have received so far, we're happy to report that our #PureTribe are loving the results!
Curious? Here are some quick facts about infrared sauna therapy:
Infrared heat is safe and healthy - in fact, it occurs naturally as the warmth we feel from the sun. In our infrared saunas you can get the benefits of infrared, minus the harmful effects of UV.
We only use the best infrared saunas in our studio, straight from Sunlighten. Sunlighten is the most trusted sauna company in Australia and New Zealand - their patented heat technology is used in spas, gyms, training studios and health practices around the world.
Some of the first benefits that people notice during their infrared sauna session are muscle relaxation and stress relief.
Other benefits of infrared sauna therapy include: cell health/immunity, wound healing, skin purification, pain relief, improved circulation, weight loss, blood pressure reduction, detoxification and relaxation.
Like any wellness practice, with consistent use comes consistent results! For the best experience, we recommend at least three sessions per week.
There are three types of infrared heat - near, mid and far. Our 'Rejuvenate' Room features Sunlighten's mPulse Series 3-in-1 infrared sauna, which delivers a blend of near, mid and far heat. Both 'Recover' and 'Relax' Rooms only feature far infrared heat.
Many athletes use infrared sauna therapy for recovery. This includes AFL athletes, professional basketballs, soccer players and cyclists - just to name a few!
Infrared saunas extract more toxins from your body versus traditional saunas.
