The simple act of sweating is one way the body regulates itself, allowing one to heal and remain healthy. Sweating has been valued as a form of cleansing since ancient times.
Infrared saunas are designed to promote a safe, natural and detoxifying sweat. Infrared light therapy provides many of the health benefits of the natural sunlight without any of the dangerous effects of UV rays.
Just like the sun, infrared sauna waves penetrate up to 1½” below your skin to detoxify and revitalize your cells. The result is a deep and highly efficient sweat that eliminates toxins at the cellular level, leaving you feeling lighter, with increased health and vitality.
The difference between an infrared sauna and the traditional saunas is the latter heats you from the outside with temperatures reaching 175 degrees. The infrared sauna heats you gently from the inside out with an average temperature of 125 degrees (like going on vacation in Arizona), resulting in a more cleansing sweat. Sol Sweat will give you the opportunity to sweat while sitting down and listening to music in the serenity of their own personal space.
Sessions are 40 minutes and booked on the hour. 10 minutes are allowed to change. It is recommended to start slow and build up to 40 minutes.
Come to each session hydrated. Keep in mind that sweating will cause your body to lose valuable fluids and electrolytes. It is very important to take care of yourself. It is not recommended to come to session hungover and definitely not after drinking. Electrolytes are available for purchase. Plastic water bottles are not allowed in sauna. We encourage you not to eat for an hour before your session
Each room is private. It is recommended to wear something comfortable – lightweight clothes, swimsuits or your “birthday suit” are all acceptable. 1 towel is provided. Bamboo Carbon wraps are available for purchase. After your sauna session, we recommend not to shower for up to an hour as you continue to sweat out toxins and cool down. A cool washcloth is provided to remove toxins and leave you feeling refreshed and clean.
Saunas are 6 feet by 5 feet inside and comfortably accommodate two people. There is a 400 lb total weight limit for sauna. Sol Sweat saunas are designed with large glass doors. You can come alone or bring a friend. For best sweat, it is recommended to sit up. However, laying down with feet up the wall and stretching are both options.
It is recommended to use sauna up to 3 times a week. The benefits start after the first session when guests feel relaxed with increased energy. The real magic happens after multiple sessions and a commitment to a lifestyle change. 4-5 times per week is acceptable for a more aggressive regimen. Frequency will depend on your own individual health.
Saunas are sanitized after each use and clean towels are provided. Infrared light kills all bacteria and any airborne germs.
Sol Sweat uses Sunlighten Saunas, the Industry Leader with patented Solocarbon® heaters with medical-grade infrared therapy.
Phones are allowed in the sauna. However, it is highly recommended to take the time to relax. All guests need to be conscious of others, keeping voice down and not use phones in reception area. Every sauna has a radio with CD player. Mediations CDs, Chromotherapy, and Acoustic Therapy are also available.
