Infrared Sauna Q & A

What is an infrared sauna?

A traditional sauna uses heat to warm the air around your body.  With an infrared sauna, a special light generates the heat, which directly warms your body from within instead of just heating the air around you.

Infrared saunas are beneficial because they trigger reactions in your body similar to moderate exercise, such as increasing your heart rate and perspiration. 

An infrared sauna can achieve these results at lower temperatures than a traditional sauna, so you can use the sauna safely, even if you can’t tolerate heat.


Why should I consider using an infrared sauna?

The infrared saunas available at Capital Cryo offer many therapeutic benefits for your overall health and wellness.

Use it to rejuvenate and detoxify your body to look and feel better. Sauna sessions also purify your skin and provide a sense of relaxation.

Infrared sauna treatments can also be a support to existing treatments you’re receiving for underlying medical issues. Time in the infrared sauna can improve your body’s natural response to inflammation in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory conditions.

You can enjoy the infrared sauna alone or with a partner.


What can I expect using an infrared sauna?

During your infrared sauna session, the Capital Cryo team adjusts the temperature to meet your needs. Initially, you may want to start a lower temperature, so you can give your body time to adjust to the heat.

While in the sauna, you can sit back and relax. Drink water before your visit and during your treatment to stay properly hydrated. You may also choose a drink that replaces your electrolytes as you sweat.

For your comfort, bring a towel to wipe away sweat and wear the minimum amount of clothing you’re comfortable with, such as a bathing suit to ensure you don’t overheat.

Each session lasts between 20-30 minutes. You can simply relax, listen to music, or read a book during your session
