The secret to more restful sleep


Infrared Sauna

Sauna studio space at Elevate

Our infrared saunas facilitate recovery as well as improve athletic performance. Infrared rays are healthy wavelengths that come from the sun. They are felt on the skin as warmth and are absorbed by your body to help you relax, improve circulation, recover faster, sleep better, feel better, age well, and naturally detoxify by stimulating the release of toxins at a cellular level.

How does it work?

Unlike a traditional sauna that uses a heating source to warm the air around you, infrared heats your body directly through infrared wavelengths of light. The feeling is similar to lying in the sun on a warm day and feeling the heat radiate to the core of your body. Your body readily absorbs infrared heat, which allows your core temperature to increase slowly and induces a comfortable, deep, detoxifying sweat.

Infrared stimulates the circulatory system, more fully oxygenating the body’s cells which allows for better blood circulation. Increased heart rate within a tranquil sauna environment triggers the body’s rest response in the parasympathetic nervous system, promoting relaxation as you perspire.

The science

Infrared sauna at Elevate

There are three categories of infrared based on wave size, frequency, and the amount of energy they carry: near (NIR), mid (MIR) and far (FIR). Each of these types of wavelengths have unique characteristics and present beautifully unique healing capabilities within our bodies. With the full spectrum of all three wavelengths inside your sauna cabin, you have yourself a powerhouse of therapeutic energy. Near, Mid and Far Infrared work in conjunction with each other, heightening the benefits to you and creating an amazing detoxification/recovery experience.


The Benefits

Increasing core body temperature affects circulation like cardio exercise. It stimulates sluggish metabolism and helps eliminate toxins that cause fat storage, making the sauna a great support to weight loss efforts and weight management.

Boost metabolism

Many professional athletes use infrared saunas to recover from training and injuries as infrared penetrates joints, improves flexibility, relieves muscle soreness, and aids in tissue regeneration.

Repair muscles

Infrared waves penetrate deep to eliminate toxins that accumulate and disrupt wellbeing - from toxic heavy metals, drug residues and environmental toxicants to hormone disruptors. Infrared waves also support lymphatic drainage and support the body’s detox systems.

Promote detoxification

The skin’s appearance improves with regular use of infrared sauna sessions as pores open from the deeper sweat induced by infrared light therapy. The infrared sauna also increases collagen and elastin in the skin, promoting that youthful glow.

Rejuvenate skin

Our sauna infrared technology has been clinically proven to temporarily reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.

Improve heart health

Sweat out stress, balance cortisol levels, relax muscles, and relieve tension throughout your body. Built-in chromotherapy within the sauna cabin uses coloured light to balance different energy points.
