Relaxation & Mental Health

Manage stress and enhance longevity.

Escape stress and truly relax. Chronic stress affects both mind and body, reducing overall well-being and length of life. Infrared saunas offer a pleasant way to unwind, incorporating relaxation and stress reduction into your wellness routine, supporting your health, vitality, and a longer, more fulfilling life.

Stress affects your entire body.

Studies show stress impacts the brain, blood pressure, weight and immune system. It creates memory problems, anxiety and learning difficulties. Neuroscientists say chronic stress can cause physical changes in grey and white matter, impact quantity of neurons and the size and connectivity of the amygdala.

The American Institute of Stress estimates stress problems make up 75 to 90% of all primary care doctor visits. Cortisol is the culprit. Stress increases that “fight or flight” hormone that raises heart rate, blood pressure and deposits excess calories in our midsection.

Infrared sauna therapy promotes relaxation by helping to balance your body’s level of cortisol, your body’s primary stress hormone. The heat generated by the sauna will also help to relax muscles and relieve tension throughout the body, allowing you to relax and de-stress.

Infrared saunas help relaxation and mental well-being in many ways.

Heat may help depression.

A University of Wisconsin-Madison study using hyperthermia to raise body temperature of depressed volunteers to the equivalent of a mild fever found improvement in symptoms of major depression for as long as six weeks after a single treatment.


Sauna is a great place to meditate.

Practicing mindful meditation while in a sauna therapy session can also help with mental stress reduction. Many studies have shown the benefits of meditation for reducing inflammation, cortisol, and cytokine chemicals and increase calm. Reap double benefits from infrared plus meditation!


Color therapy balances the whole body.

Chromotherapy casts colors into your sauna, creating an artful atmosphere with a balancing effect on your body. The sun's visible light spectrum is believed to align with different body energy points; violet and blue help alleviate anxiety and bring calm.
