We Offer Infrared Light Therapy
Infrared light therapy offers many stand-alone health benefits and pairs well with a variety of our services at Elevation Massage and Spa. Sweating is the body's natural way to heal and stay healthy. Infrared sauna therapy is beneficial for natural healing and illness prevention, because of its ability to penetrate human tissue resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat. It is known to assist with detoxification, immunity, weight loss, heart health, muscle recovery, weight management, and relaxation.
Many sauna users experience relief from conditions such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, and neck and back pain; because it warms and relaxes joints and muscle tissue. Infrared heat is completely safe and healthy for all living things. It is the same heat used in hospitals to warm premature babies. SoloCarbon® heating technology, found exclusively in our Amplify sauna from Sunlighten, is the most proven, effective far infrared heater on the market.
Combined with the full spectrum heaters included in the Amplify, this sauna session gives you the benefits of all three infrared wavelengths: near, mid, and far.

Infrared Sauna F.A.Q
What are the Health Benefits?
Aid Weight Loss Programs Increasing core body temperature affects circulation like cardio exercise. It stimulates a sluggish metabolism and helps eliminate toxins that cause fat storage, making sauna a great support to weight loss efforts and weight management.
Infrared waves penetrate deep to eliminate toxins that accumulate and disrupt well-being--from toxic heavy metals, drug residues, environmental toxicants, and hormone disruptors. Also supports lymphatic drainage and supports the body’s detox systems.
Improve Heart Health
Sunlighten’s far infrared technology has been clinically proven to temporarily reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
Repair Muscles Faster
Many professional athletes use Sunlighten saunas to recover from their training and injuries as infrared penetrates joints, improves flexibility, relieves muscle soreness, and aids in tissue regeneration.
Productive Stress-Relief and Relaxation
Sweat out stress, balance cortisol levels, relax muscles, and relieve tension throughout your body.
The skin’s appearance improves with regular use of a Sunlighten sauna as pores open from the deeper sweat induced by infrared light therapy.
Improve Sleep Quality
The time you spend in your sauna can help you get better rest by creating a routine that supports relaxation and a healthy circadian rhythm.
Infrared increases core body temp, up to 3 degrees, which activates and strengthens the immune system. And stimulates heat shock proteins that help deter illness.
What do I wear?
To enable infrared to penetrate tissues as deep as possible, we recommend wearing as little as possible. A bamboo carbon body wrap, cotton towel, gym shorts or swimsuit are perfect options. We do require clients to wear clothing or a towel to keep the sauna clean. We offer bath towels for your convenience.
How often should I use the sauna?
One session will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. But similar to exercise, the more you do it, the better the results. Recommended use is 3-4 times per week for 30-40 minutes.
When will I start sweating?
Sweat levels are different for everyone. Don’t be surprised if you don’t sweat during the first few sessions. Sweating will increase with regular use. Even if your body is not drenched in sweat, your body is still detoxifying from harmful toxins. Also, be sure to drink plenty of water before your session. If you are dehydrated, you will not sweat as much.
Do I need a doctor’s note?
No. If you have health concerns, we recommend speaking with your doctor before your sauna session.
Is the Infrared coming from lights?
No. Infrared heaters are located on the floor, front, back, and side wall panels. The chromotherapy lights are not infrared.
Are there any studies on infrared therapy?
There are various studies on the use of infrared for a multitude of health benefits. Specifically, Sunlighten infrared saunas have been shown to increase core temperature for detoxification, temporarily lower blood pressure, and increase flexibility. Many other studies have shown infrared saunas to increase skin health, aid in relaxation and mental health, and support reduction of waist circumference. These studies can be found on Sunlighten’s website (https://www.sunlighten.com/light-science) via the Light Science research library.

Are children allowed to use the sauna?
The core body temperature of children rises much faster than adults. When taking a sauna session with a child, operate at a lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time. A general rule of thumb is one minute inside the sauna per year of age for the child, but always accompanied by an adult. And remember to keep you and your children hydrated, even if you don’t see them sweating.
Is it ok to use the sauna while breastfeeding?
Please consult with your physician, as this answer is usually yes, but may be no depending upon your specific circumstances.
Can I sauna while pregnant?
Even though infrared is completely safe, it is not recommended to use while pregnant. While pregnant, the core body temperature is already elevated, and you could overheat.
Contraindications for sauna use:
The ability to maintain core body temperature decreases with age. This is primarily due to circulatory conditions and decreased sweat gland function. The body must be able to activate its natural cooling processes in order to maintain core body temperature. If elderly, operate at a lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time.
Diseases Associated with Reduced Ability to Sweat or Perspire – Multiple Sclerosis, Central Nervous System Tumors, and Diabetes with Neuropathy are conditions that are associated with impaired sweating. Consult a physician.
Hemophiliacs / Individuals Prone to Bleeding
The use of infrared saunas should be avoided by anyone who is predisposed to bleeding.
Fever & Insensitivity to Heat
Individuals with insensitivity to heat or who have a fever should not use the sauna until the fever subsides.
Pregnant women should consult a physician before using an infrared sauna.
Heating of the low back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily increase menstrual flow. This should not preclude sauna use.
Recent (acute) joint injury should not be heated for the first 48 hours or until the swollen symptoms subside. Joints that are chronically hot and swollen may respond poorly to vigorous heating of any kind.
Metal pins, rods, artificial joints, or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared waves and thus are not heated by this system, making it safe to use. Nevertheless, you should consult your physician prior to using.
Pacemakers / Defibrillators
The magnets used to assemble our saunas can interrupt the pacing and inhibit the output of pacemakers. Please discuss with your doctor the possible risks this may cause. In the rare event that you experience pain or discomfort, immediately discontinue sauna use.
