Cultivate Recovery’s range of infrared saunas, also called far-infrared saunas, omit infrared light waves that create heat in the body, causing you to sweat and release stored “toxins” In an infrared sauna, only 20 percent of the energy is used to heat the air, leaving the rest of the energy to heat the body. The radiant heat can penetrate deep below the skin producing a gentle warming inside the body. These lower temperatures allow you to sweat faster and to tolerate a longer sauna session offering greater therapeutic benefit. Typical sessions last 20 to 45 minutes and can be repeated once or twice during the day to maximize the benefits. Infrared saunas leave you feeling invigorated, not depleted like conventional saunas.

What is Infrared?
Infrared is part of the sun’s invisible spectrum of light, located next to the colour red and felt as warmth. Not to be confused with UV and other potentially harmful rays, infrared heat is safe and healing. Infrared rays penetrate the body deeply and help to move on and eliminate any harmful toxins that may have built up inside.
What is the difference between traditional saunas and infrared saunas?
Traditional wet and dry saunas use heated air to warm the body, which means they typically have to be very hot to reach therapeutic levels. Infrared Saunas on the other hand, penetrate the tissues directly, causing the body to sweat at a more comfortable, tolerable, ambient temperature.
