Wondering about the benefits of infrared sauna, and where to find the best spot for a session in Reno? Infrared sauna is a wonderful experience with total body benefits, and we’re covering everything worth knowing about this therapy to help you get started.
How Does Infrared Sauna Work?
At Boost in Reno, our infrared sauna therapy sessions take place in our private infrared sauna. Unlike traditional saunas, which use warming surfaces to create steam, infrared lamps create heat that more deeply and easily penetrate into the body. That means a therapeutic sweat in a more comfortable setting, thanks to an increase in core temperature and a lower ambient temperature.
Infrared heat waves can help reduce joint pain and stiffness, improve cardiovascular health, improve circulation, and help you deeply relax. Fresh from a session, people report feeling recharged and re-energized.
Studies are also looking at the psychological health benefits of the infrared sauna, which can be particularly beneficial as we transition to shorter days and cooler weather.
Our infrared sauna is equipped with chromotherapy. This color light therapy offer physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual healing. Instead of seven single color lights, our sauna offers combinations of lights, color-changing modes, and intensity settings, all controlled via remote. Light is emitted in the form of photons, which are absorbed through the sun and active receptors in the eyes. Once absorbed, specifically proteins in the body are activated, producing chemical reactions that offer various therapeutic benefits.
Red, for example, can help regulate the circulatory system and relieve tension. Green helps reset circadian rhythm, relax muscles and stimulate tissue regeneration. During your session, you’re free to use the remote and guide to customize your experience.
How Long is an Infrared Sauna Session?
At Boost, each infrared sauna session lasts 35 (blissful) minutes. There is no downtime after a session, though hydrating properly afterward is recommended.
What Does an Infrared Sauna Session Cost?
Each session is $35. We offer packages of 10 for a discounted price.
