What to know about an Infrared Sauna session…
Infrared saunas are different than steam and dry heat saunas because they heat the body, not the air.
After each sauna detoxification session, dry off with a towel. It is best to let your body cool off naturally while still burning calories. Finish it off with a cool glass of water and you are ready to take on the day.
If you must shower, we recommend cooling down for at least 10 minutes before showering, we also do provide chilled aromatherapy towels to wipe down post session.
Please follow your doctor's instructions if they recommend using a lower temperature (which may still be beneficial).
Please arrive 10 minutes early before your session to ensure the full session time.
Drink lots of water before, during and after a session.
Types of Infrared Sauna sessions
release toxins | relieve symptoms | prevent illness
Sweating is good for you. It is the body’s safe and natural way to heal and stay healthy. Far infrared sauna detoxification happens by heating the body directly, causing a rise in core temperature. This results in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside.
The leading principle of sauna detoxification states that the build-up of toxic substances can lead to a host of common illnesses. Ridding the body of these toxins through a natural sauna detox may help relieve symptoms, prevent future illness and increase overall health and vitality.
"Detoxification is important because it strengthens the body’s immune system and helps the body’s biochemical processes function efficiently so that we are better able to digest the nutrients in our foods. Detoxification has also been shown to be helpful with colitis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, auto-immune disease, immune deficiency states, autism, ADD and ADHD." -Dr. Rachel West
lose inches | burn calories | detox body
A traditional sauna uses wet or dry heat to warm the air around you, which induces sweating. This can aid in weight loss, but it has shown that the weight loss is mainly due to loss of water – or heavy sweating. An infrared sauna heats your body from the inside out, which allows you to stay in the sauna longer and increases your heart rate. Infrared sauna use results in more calories burned in a shorter period of time.
In addition, according to information published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, infrared sauna weight loss sessions were shown to burn up to 600 calories.² In a 2009 study, our infrared saunas were shown to help lower weight and waist circumference in just a three-month period.
Furthermore, Solocarbon infrared heat allows for most of the far infrared wavelength to be near 9.4 microns, which is the level at which the human body absorbs infrared energy. This is also the frequency at which a water molecule resonates or vibrates. This vibration causes a release of cellular toxins. This optimal micron output also allows for deeper penetration of far infrared heat, which improves weight loss efforts.
stimulate collagen | reduce wrinkles | improve skin tone
Tone and Texture
In a study done in 2006, doctors looked at the impact of infrared on collagen and elastin in our skin, two of the most important ingredients to healthy skin. They found that both collagen and elastin increased after exposure to infrared, and all patients included in the study reported enhanced skin texture, less roughness, and improvement in color.
Infrared saunas may not only improve the appearance of acne scarring, but they may actually help reduce acne in the first place. Typical acne is caused by a build-up of oil on the skin, and if you produce a lot of oil, that can lead to constant breakouts. Infrared saunas cause you to sweat from infrared heat – not actual heat – which can help clean out those clogged pores. When a sauna session is complete, a quick face wash ensures the unclogged pores do not clog up again.
Infrared saunas are clinically proven to reach deeper levels into your skin, effectively removing toxins such as heavy metals. Our Solocarbon technology heats your body to the core, pulling out toxins that can clog your pores and lead to a host of health issues beyond just within your skin.

decrease pain | reduce soreness | faster recovery time
Infrared sauna heat works by penetrating joints, muscles and tissues, increasing circulation and speeding oxygen flow. By reducing soreness on nerve endings, our infrared heat reduces muscle spasms and helps the body heal itself naturally.
For years, doctors have recommended Sunlighten saunas because of proven relief from sports injury, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, arthritis and other chronic pain conditions.
Infrared wavelengths penetrate the body to create heat, which creates profound therapeutic benefits. They increase blood flow to the muscles, delivering more concentrated oxygen, which creates more energy to heal.

Who should not use an infrared sauna
-The below information has been obtained by Rocky Mountain Saunas.-
While The Urban Muse feels there are many health benefits to saunas, we always recommend speaking with your medical doctor before using a sauna or if you have any conditions that may be complicated with a sauna.
With a little common sense and by following a few precautionary guidelines, Infrared Sauna Therapy is a safe and pleasurable way to maintain and improve your overall health and wellbeing.
The Urban Muse does not promote attempting to self-treat any disease with an IR Sauna without direct supervision of a certified physician. If you have a disease, be certain to consult with your primary-care physician before use. The material presented is offered for reference purposes only. Creating a cure for or treating any disease is not implied and should not be inferred as such.
In all situations, proper hydration is a primary requirement for IR sauna use. Drinking plenty of fluids is recommended before, during and after infrared sauna use. Replacing the body’s electrolytes, calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium is very important, since these minerals are depleted during sweating. Regular vitamin supplements are an inexpensive way to accomplish electrolyte replenishment. Sports drinks that replace electrolytes are also acceptable.
Heating of the low back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily increase their menstrual flow. Once a woman is aware that this may occur, she can choose to allow herself to possibly experience this short term effect without worry or to simply avoid use at that time of her cycle. Many women do report relief of other common symptoms related to menstruation including relief of bloating, cramping and headaches.*
If you are using any prescription drugs, check with your physician for any possible change in the drug’s effect due to any interaction with infrared heat. Very rarely does heating the body alter the properties or effects of a prescribed medication. Cortisteroids may be a contraindicated substance. Some antihistamines contain ephedrine and may increase heart rate inordinately during sauna use.
Hemophiliacs and anyone predisposed to hemorrhage should avoid usage or any type of heating that would induce vasodilatation or stimulated circulation, which can increase the tendency to bleed.
According to Dr. J. Halperin, M.D., Mount Sinai Medical Center, New York, “Moderate sauna use is safe for most older people. Diabetics or anyone being treated for heart conditions, circulatory issues or prescription medication should check with their doctor.”
Start your IR sauna program slowly and monitor any unusual changes in blood sugar. Infrared sauna use does not increase the blood sugar level or the body’s consumption of glucose.
HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE
Using an IR sauna does not normally raise blood pressure. You may use a blood pressure monitor during your session to observe BP rates. Although the heart rate is increased during use, vasodilation of all the blood vessels in the body and increased blood circulation actually allows for a lowering of blood pressure in many users, both short and long term. Regular infrared sauna use is a highly effective, passive cardiovascular activity for folks with limited physical exercise capability.*
Wait for an hour or two after a meal before engaging in infrared sauna therapy. Therapy right after a meal may interfere with proper digestion and cause mild stomach cramps.
Alcohol consumption during, or prior to, an IR sauna session, is prohibited! “Sweating out a hangover” is not advisable, but permissible, given that you limit your session to no more than 30 minutes and do not overheat! Drink lots of fluids prior, during and after your session.
Danger signals include a rapid increase of body temperature, a noticeable “racing” of the heartbeat, extreme redness of the skin and feeling light headed or extremely faint. If you notice any of these symptoms, end your session immediately. Occurrences of this nature are very rare.
EXERCISE AND SAUNA USE
Wait 20-30 minutes, following strenuous exercise, to use your infrared sauna. Allow your body to cool down completely before entering the unit. You are activating a different branch of your involuntary nervous system; The IR sauna is supplying your body heat passively, instead of actively, as in a physical workout.
People with advanced symptomatic heart disease or unstable angina should not use an infrared sauna unless supervised by a doctor.
RECENT JOINT INJURY
If a person has suffered a recent joint injury that is considered acute, it should not be heated for at least 48 hours or until the hot and swollen symptoms diminish. Enthusiastic heating is strictly contraindicated in cases of enclosed infections in any of your tissue including dental.
