Detoxifies, burns calories, increases circulation, improves skin tone, rejuvenates, and relaxes
Empower your health and well-being with an infrared sauna. It is a highly effective approach for natural healing, preventative care, and overall healthier living. An infrared sauna uses light to create heat to produce sweat and an increased heart rate, which translates into a wide variety of health benefits.
What Is An Infrared Sauna?
An infrared sauna is a type of heat therapy that uses light to create heat. Infrared waves penetrate the skin and cause your body to sweat, releasing toxins in the process. Our saunas are completely safe and come with a variety of health benefits, such as improved circulation, detoxification, and weight loss.
Infrared saunas are completely safe to use. They’re a safer alternative to the vast majority of traditional saunas. A conventional sauna heats the surrounding air that is then used to heat your body, but it will not penetrate your skin. In contrast, infrared sauna therapies create heat via deep wavelengths that permeate the soft tissue in your body. This provides cellular-level benefits, including detoxification, purification, and relaxation.
How Does Infrared Sauna Work?
The air in a traditional sauna is heated, and that hot air, in turn, heats your body, but it does not penetrate your skin. Infrared sauna treatments produce heat through a penetrating wavelength that can enter your body’s soft tissue and deliver benefits on a cellular level.
The heat from our infrared saunas deeply penetrates achy joints, tired muscles, and frayed connective tissues. This helps you recover faster, breathe easier, and enjoy a beautiful glow. In the same way that the sun’s warm rays stimulate the flow of oxygen and a healthy heart rate, our saunas do so in the comfort of our private sauna suite.

There is a wide variety of health benefits that come with infrared sauna sessions. An infrared sauna will undoubtedly improve all the areas of your life — physical, mental, and emotional. Heat therapy in an infrared sauna mimics moderate exercise (like a strenuous walk) and provides similar health benefits you would expect to see from that.

Infrared (Sunlight) Saunas Vs. Conventional Saunas
Infrared (sunlight) saunas, such as those offered at Holos MD, offer numerous advantages over conventional saunas.
Infrared saunas facilitate detoxification at a cellular level, thus detoxifying the body from heavy metals, such as aluminum, mercury, lead, and cadmium, and purifying the cells where our body stores harmful toxins and waste products.
The high core temperature of a sauna causes the body to sweat. Why is this important? Sweating is the body’s safe, natural way to detoxify and heal itself. Sweat pushes toxins out of the body through the pores. By releasing heat, sweating keeps your internal core temperature at a consistent, healthy level.
Because it operates more effectively at temperatures 60-80 degrees lower than conventional saunas, detoxification from an infrared sauna is 7-10 times greater than that which can be achieved with a conventional sauna.
In an infrared sauna, the average person sweats out 20% toxins and 80% water, whereas, in a conventional sauna, the average person sweats out 3% toxins and 97% water.
Frequently Asked Questions
Individuals with average health should have no major risks associated with sweating in a sauna. If you are worried, please consult your doctor before booking a sauna session. If you have had a tummy tuck, abdominal surgery, c-section, or breast augmentation, please consult your physician before using a sauna.
Metal pins, rods, artificial joints, and other surgical implants generally reflect infrared waves. For this reason, they are not heated by this system. Nevertheless, you should consult your physician prior to using an infrared sauna if you have any concerns. As mentioned in the previous answer, if you have had a tummy tuck, abdominal surgery, c-section, or breast augmentation, please consult your physician before using a sauna.
We only allow one session each day, and it lasts 30 to 40 minutes
Yes, they are all private rooms.
Your priority should be replenishing the water you sweat out during your session. We recommend waiting 30 minutes before showering and putting on any lotions, liquids, or creams as this will give time for your pores to close.
We recommend bringing loose-fitting clothes to change into after your sauna session. We provide water, but you are also welcome to bring your own bottle. Additionally, we provide towels so that you can dry off after your session.
When using a sauna, you should adopt the mindset that less is more. Feel free to sweat in your birthday suit if you are comfortable with that. Otherwise, we recommend wearing a swimsuit or a bra and underwear. Please make sure that the clothing is free of any plastic or metal, such as bras with underwire or swimsuits with metal eyelets.
Our bodies need plenty of water to function optimally, and you’ll be sweating plenty out during your sauna session. When you sweat, your body uses water to flush out toxins and other waste. Therefore, drinking plenty of water is ideal to help you feel your best and to get the most out of your session.
Heavy metals and toxic chemicals accumulate primarily in fat cells, and those toxins can keep the body from eliminating the fat itself. It makes sense that possibly the best way to quickly eliminate chemicals is through the body’s largest organ, the skin. When the heart rate and blood flow increase, it pushes blood to the capillaries and extremities. These concentrated increases allow your body to rapidly eliminate the toxins that are essentially trapping fat cells inside of your body.
Yes. By increasing your heart rate and core body temperature by 3 degrees in your session, it could take up to an hour to return to normal. We encourage you to stay active before or after your session if you want to maximize the calorie burn for weight loss.
Based on your individual health and wellness goals, we recommend going to the sauna at least 2–3 times a week. For even better results, going to the sauna 45 times a week is recommended. Since an infrared sauna aids in weight loss, we suggest you try it immediately after your workout to see the best results.
We recommend you consult your doctor in case of any medical concerns.
