How It Works
Infrared waves are absorbed by the body easily, stimulating to immune and cardiovascular systems, and help remove toxins without any of the sunlight’s harmful rays. The infrared spectrum can be categorized into three main settings: near-infrared, mid-infrared, and far-infrared.
Near-infrared is the shortest wavelength (no intense heat or light) that helps improve skin and promotes cell and tissue health.
Mid-infrared is a long wavelength that targets the body’s tissue, improves circulation, and promotes anti-inflammatory relief.
Far-infrared is the longest wavelength that helps detoxify the body and helps burn calories.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Often Can I Use the Infrared Sauna?
This will depend on your overall wellness and what you intend to accomplish. While having a sauna session in Austin once a week may work well for you, using the sauna two to three times a week may be more appropriate to accomplish your wellness goal.
How Safe is the Infrared Sauna?
Because infrared light does not contain harmful UV rays, you can enjoy your session for hours without worrying about the risk of skin damage. Thanks to infrared sauna technology, you can enjoy this therapeutic experience as often as once a day!
What's the Difference Between a Traditional Sauna and an Infrared Sauna?
The main difference between infrared saunas and traditional saunas is how they use heat. Traditional saunas use a single heater that heats the air, this hot air heats the user. In contrast, infrared saunas use advanced therapy to heat the user directly, with only a small percentage of the heat actually heating the air. This results in a deeper sweat and at a lower ambient air temperature. In fact, infrared saunas usually operate between 115° – 135°F, while traditional saunas can get up to 195°F.
You will get all of the relaxation benefits of a traditional sauna, along with the increased health benefits that infrared offer, all at a much more comfortable temperature. Infrared saunas are also dry saunas and many users find this makes for a more comfortable sauna session.
Not only are infrared saunas extremely beneficial, but they are also more efficient and require less electricity (according to Livestrong.com, a traditional sauna is almost three times as expensive to run as an infrared sauna). That also means that the warm-up time of an infrared sauna is much quicker than a traditional sauna.
How Does the Infrared Sauna Help My Skin?
With far infrared sauna technology, your body sweats from infrared heat to clean out toxins and clogged pores to help reduce acne and detoxify your skin. Consistent infrared therapy can help improve the texture of your skin, reduce roughness, and accelerate wound healing.
Is the sauna sanitized regularly?
The Massage Studio uses non-toxic, organic disinfectant products for sauna maintenance. Our Austin sauna’s floor is cleaned on a daily basis, especially on the feet area and the benches are thoroughly wiped down.
