Infrared Sauna Therapy

Our full-spectrum Infrared Saunas combine the beneficial infrared rays with the therapeutic beauty of visible light through color light therapy in every sauna session. By eliminating the sun’s troublesome, harmful UV rays we provide a safe, restorative sweat session that will leave you rejuvenated.

TRADITIONAL SAUNA VS. INFRARED SAUNA

Traditional saunas range from 180 to 200°F. The temperatures of infrared saunas are effective at a comfortable 120°F to 160°F. This lower temperature results in a much more comfortable experience while achieving maximum results.

The infrared rays act directly on the body (radiant energy) and not on the air (convection heating). Because of this direct heating, an infrared sauna has the potential to excrete up to 7 times more toxins from your subcutaneous layers of your skin.

Unlike regular saunas, infrared saunas help with pain relief, weight loss, lowering blood pressure, skin rejuvenation,  improved circulation and more!

Infrared Sauna Benefits

We are all exposed to hundreds of chemicals a day in the air we breathe, the items we touch, what we apply to our skin, and what we eat and drink. Not all of these chemicals can be processed adequately by the body, nor can they be handled at one time. By incorporating an Infrared Sauna session into your weekly routine, you can help your body rid itself of these devastating toxins, while deeply relaxing for 45 minutes.

1 | DETOX

Sweating is one of the body’s most natural ways to eliminate toxins, making it a crucial part of detoxification. When compared to traditional saunas, infrared saunas allow you to eliminate about seven times more toxins – leaving you fully refreshed and rejuvenated after each session.

2 | INCREASED CIRCULATION

Heating the muscles with infrared rays produces an increase in blood flow similar to that seen during exercise. If you suffer from muscle aches or joint pain, infrared saunas can relieve this form of inflammation by increasing circulation and relaxing your muscles.

3 | WEIGHTLOSS

Studies have shown that an infrared sauna session can burn upwards of 800 calories.  As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories.

4 | SKIN PURIFICATION

The near infrared wavelength (sometimes referred to as Red Light Therapy) is the most effective wavelength for healing the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. Near infrared treatments stimulate collagen production to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin tone.

5 | IMPROVE IMMUNITY

A fever is the body’s natural mechanism to strengthen and accelerate the immune response, as seen in the case of infection.  This enhanced immune system, combined with improved elimination of toxins and wastes via intense sweating, increases your overall health and resistance to disease.

6 | RELAXATION

Infrared sauna helps 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.

Our infrared sauna features LED color light therapy, also known as chromotherapy. Color light therapy is a system of alternative medicine that uses projected colored light to treat emotional and mental imbalances. Each color possesses frequencies of a specific vibration, and each vibration is related to different physical symptoms. Color therapy works on various energy points to help balance your body via the full spectrum of visible light. Each color addresses a distinct need.

WHAT TO EXPECT

BEFORE YOUR SESSION
We recommend to drink plenty of water before, during and after your infrared sauna session! Since you are using an infrared sauna and sweating, it is important to stay properly hydrated.  Before you begin your session, it is important to remove all makeup so your skin can receive the full benefits of the IR heat.
DURING YOUR SESSION
You’re welcome to relax, meditate, or read a book during your session. If you start feeling faint, claustrophobic, or uncomfortable, cut the session short or open the sauna door for a bit. During your session, you’ll start to sweat, experience clarity of mind, and your body will start to relax. The heat will raise your body temperature. As a result, you’ll notice your heart beating faster and that is perfectly normal! 
AFTER YOUR SESSION
Please try to vacate the room within 10 minutes after your session has ended. This allows us time to reset the rooms for the next session. If you are unable to exit the Infrared Sauna Suite in a timely manner and we cannot reset the room for the next guest, we will have to charge you for the next sauna session.  Your body just flushed out a lot of toxins. Be sure to replenish and rehydrate!

INFRARED SAUNA TIPS

It’s time to relax from your day and let the soft infrared heat wash over and soothe your entire body! Here are a few tips to get the most from your sauna experience. Happy sweating!

It’s the most important rule of sauna use! To get the most out of your sauna, you must sweat and your body is only going to be able to sweat out as much water as you give it.  A good rule of thumb is to divide your body weight in half and drink that number of ounces in water daily. 

Wait at least 1-2 hours after eating before beginning a sauna session.  This will allow your body to attain the best overall results, since blood is not being diverted for digestion.

Do not use skin lotions or oils before or during your sauna session as this will inhibit sweating and clog up pores. Wait until after you’ve cooled down and showered before applying your favorite skin lotion.

We set your sauna temperature to 125-155°F to warm up the sauna. 

Our sauna rooms are 100 percent private, so you can wear a bathing suit or nothing at all. Lightweight shorts and a t-shirt are ok.  Swim suits are better.  “Birthday Suit” is the BEST. 

Achieve increased body flexibility by stretching your arms, legs, neck, and back area during your sauna session. This also increases range of motion and reduces chronic stiffness. Massage congested and “knotty” muscle areas to help alleviate soreness, pain and tightness.

When you finish your sauna session, it is important to relax and cool down while your body continues to perspire.  Sit or recline with a towel around you for about 2 minutes.

You may not sweat a lot during your first 2-3 sauna sessions and this is normal. For many people who haven’t had a recent history of sweating, it takes a few sessions to “retrain” the body/ lymph system to do what comes naturally. Over time, you will begin to sweat more quickly and at a lower temperature setting as your body adjusts to your regular sauna routine.

Take care not to overheat during your first few sessions.  If you feel lightheaded, have a queasy stomach, or start to get a headache, terminate your session immediately. As the body continues to adjust, sweating can increase dramatically and body temperature regulation becomes more effective.

These are temporary symptoms associated with eliminating toxic substances, healing chronic infections or metabolic changes in the body.  They are an important function of all deep healing methods.  These short lived “flare-ups” are generally mild and are positive signs that deep healing is occurring. Symptoms may include headache, muscle pain, odors, and fatigue.  If you are experiencing a healing reaction, drink water and lie down and rest until the symptoms abate.

The entire experience was wonderful, very relaxing. Everything was explained very well. The treatment rooms having their own private showers was awesome too! A lot of spa’s make you leave the room, and go to a different area to shower. So being able to do that right away was super nice.

Menomonee Falls needed this Awesome Spa.... nothing like it within miles. It is a must to go to and it's a spa like you have never seen before.

After working and believing in the natural healthcare arena, I've come across a handful of places that I consider bucket list worthy. This is that place, I promise you. Might I also note that I lived in Chicago for 12+ years and have traveled frequently to LA and New York and gone to their such establishments as well.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some answers to the questions we receive the most about our infrared saunas. If we missed anything, please do not hesitate to contact us. We’ll be happy to help!

Yes, our sauna is located in a private suite where you can relax without any interruptions. 

Essentially, you will undress and enter the sauna (which will be pre-heated). You will be given towels and instructions on the use of the sauna. At that time, you will sit down inside the sauna, get yourself situated and begin the heating up process. You can have the light on or off, or you can listen to the stereo or even read a book. Some people simply choose to be quiet and meditate while they are detoxing.

Our Infrared Sauna sessions are 45 minutes each.

Yes, we offer a shower in our Infrared Sauna suite. If you are booked for a float session after your sauna, we will have you shower in your float suite.

At least once a week is ideal, but you can sauna as often as you like! It is a great complement to your exercise routine, and also perfect for a rest or recovery day. While one session will leave you feeling refreshed and cleansed, maximum results are obtained with repeated treatments.

If you’re suffering from chronic illness or have high toxicity, one session daily for at least 10 days is recommended.

It is very important to hydrate thoroughly before, during and after the use of the Infrared Sauna. As the body heat increases and the body begins to sweat, the loss of water can change the electrolyte concentration and can have harmful effects. Furthermore, as the toxins are released through the sweat, they are, to a lesser extent, released in the body and hydrating helps the body flush them out. Please bring your own water.

Absolutely! Our Infrared Sauna accommodates up to 3 people, and we charge individually, per person using the sauna. 

We require booking appointments in advance.  Our online booking tool is easily accessible, but should not be used for booking within a 2 hour period of the desired appointment time. Contact the Spa directly by phone.
