Medical Grade Sauna
Sessions are 30 or 60 minutes
WHY INFRARED SAUNA THERAPY?
Infrared saunas are an effective tool for natural healing and prevention. Infrared light has the ability to penetrate human tissue which in turn produces a host of anti-aging benefits for overall healthy living.
The heat stimulates the cardiovascular, lymphatic and immune systems. This produces a deep, therapeutic perspiration to release toxins, burn calories, and relax muscles.
The infrared sauna used at Maryville Fitness is Medical Grade. This means it is clinically proven to aid in reducing blood pressure and aid in weight loss.
What To Expect
Single is 1 person session. Social is 2 person session
Enjoy 60 minutes in a 2-seater sauna. Simply bring a towel, water bottle ( use glass versus a plastic water bottle), and a cell phone or reading material (optional). Wear shorts and a sleeveless shirt or swimwear to get the most benefits.
Listen to your own music ( the sauna is cell phone friendly) , an upbeat station on the radio in the sauna or sit in silence. Sweating starts within 20 minutes and deep sweating happens with multiple sessions. Loose clothing to change into afterwards is suggested.
Stay hydrated. The sauna can be considered a passive workout as well as a healing experience, and replenishing yourself is a must.
Sauna Frequently Asked Questions
Booking on the hour and how long is a session?
We offer several times in the morning, afternoon, and evening that can be booked online for 30 to 60 minutes. We allot a couple minutes to get in sauna and approximately 5 minutes to change afterwards to keep on schedule. If arriving late, we may have to deduct time. If you want more time after session to get ready, you can reduce time in sauna.
Do you have showers and changing rooms?
We don’t have additional space to change so please make sure you are comfortable if you book a Social session. We do not offer showers. It is recommended to let the body cool down and pores close for at least 30 minutes after session before showering.
What do I wear?
The more skin exposed to the infrared, the better. Some session users prefer to use loose clothing, minimal athletic wear, or a swimsuit. You may want to bring loose clothes to change into.
How often should I visit? Will I sweat first session?
To truly detox and get optimal results, it is recommended to come 2-3 times per week. One time will help relieve stress and pain. The majority of clients come 1-2 times per month for maintenance and self-care. It is a deeper sweat, so you won’t necessarily notice the sweat until later in your session or after a few visits
Difference between infrared and traditional sauna?
The difference is the heat source. The average temperature of the infrared sauna is 125-140 degrees and heats the body. The client can control the temperature. The traditional sauna uses electric or hot rocks to heat the air to 175 degrees plus. The purpose of infrared sauna is to give you maximum benefits at a lower temperature.
