Infrared Sauna = Gentle Heat

Woman in a Sauna

Sweating helps to detoxify your body, by removing the accumulation of potentially carcinogenic heavy metals as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium and cholesterol.

Profuse perspiration deeply cleanses the skin, creating beautiful and improved tone, texture, and color. Raising body temperature causes infections to heal more quickly. Our bodies develop fever when ill to intensify metabolism and help kill germs.

The Detox Box uses far infrared rays to provide gentle and deep penetrating heat to the body to induce a high volume of sweat at a very comfortable temperature of around 40-50 degrees Celsius. In The Detox Box, you will sweat 2-3 times more than in a traditional sauna but at half the temperature. Now you can sweat away - whilst in a very comfortable and relaxing temperature.  

If you have used conventional saunas and found it hard to tolerate high temperatures involved you should come in and experience infrared technology to obtain all the benefits at the much lower temperatures. If you have high blood pressure and other serious medical conditions, we advise you to check with your medical practitioner to see if the use of sauna is suitable for you.

If you take a 30-minute sauna in The Detox Box, you will perspire the same amount as if you had run 6 miles. Research suggests that cellulite becomes water soluble at 109.4 F. This gel-like substance which is made up of fat, water and waste products can be sweated away.

Far Infrared Sauna stimulates the lymphatic system, separating toxins from the cells they are stored in. This makes it easier to eliminate them. Also helps move lymph fluid, which strengthens the immune system and enhances detoxification.

Sauna Benefits

    • Detox from an infrared sauna is 7 to 10 times greater than a conventional sauna. In a conventional sauna the average person sweats out 3% toxins and 97% water. In an infrared sauna, the average person sweats out 20% toxins and 80% water!


    • Relieve back, neck, and arthritis pain with infrared sauna heat therapy. Researchers studying HRP (Heat Responsive Pain) have observed remarkable therapeutic benefits by using continuous low level heat therapy for treating lower back and upper body pain, all conditions that fall under the HRP classification.


    • A 30 minute infrared sauna session can burn up to 200-600 calories! As the body works to cool itself while using an infrared sauna, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. Infrared heat therapy raises core body temperature causing passive cardiovascular conditioning. Your body’s natural response to infrared heat therapy is to increase circulation and sweat.


    • The Carbon heaters were used in a clinical study with the University of Missouri Kansas City in 2005 and were shown to lower blood pressure from a 30 minute sauna session three times a week. Repeated infrared treatment improves impaired blood vessel functions in patients with high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol.


    • ​Heating of muscles with infrared produces an increased blood flow level similar to that seen during exercise. Body temperature elevation also produces an increase in blood flow. Infrared heat assists in resolution of inflammatory infiltrates, edema and exudates. The increased peripheral circulation provides the transport needed to help evacuate the edema which can help end inflammation, decrease pain and help speed healing.


    • Improve your skin’s appearance with regular use of an infrared sauna. Open wounds heal quicker with reduced scarring. Infrared heat therapy helps acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns and any skin lesions or cuts. It also reduces cellulite, wrinkles, makes skin look radiant, firms and improves skin tone and elasticity. Been shown to also improve immune system and to help reduce stress/anxiety.
