Picture this: In recent months, you’ve been recovering from hip surgery. You’re still feeling some pain in the area and a friend recommended that you try an infrared sauna. The weather is beginning to warm up and you decide not to. Yet, a few weeks go by and you notice that your hip pain continues to bother you. So you finally decide to give an infrared sauna a try. You discover that the programs operate at a lower temperature than you originally thought. Also, you note that it was actually a comfortable experience that helped to reduce your pain.

There’s often a misconception that saunas are simply used to warm up.

The pre-set wellness programs target a number of potential outcomes. So there is no need to fear the heat. 3-in-1 infrared saunas are designed to help you achieve your wellness goals year round. By doing so, it can give you the vitality you need to enjoy a rich and full life. 


To see the full benefits of infrared saunas, you need to be regularly sweating out the toxins in the body. 


Our saunas operate at a lower, more comfortable temperature because of Solocarbon™ infrared heaters. 

What temperature is considered ‘more comfortable’?

The sauna is not required to run at high heat (60 +) to achieve wellness improvements.  The ambient air temperature of the sauna is solely a personal preference. It has nothing to do with the efficacy of the infrared, which works best between 45 – 58 degrees.

A high heat sauna is not providing the same benefits. It is only heating the cabin air and a shallow, surface sweat will be produced. This cools the body, thereby dehydrating the body and less health outcomes.

It is natural that saunas may not be front of mind in the warmer months. But for those who are wellness conscious, this is a simple and pleasant way to take care of yourself.

The pre-set wellness programs are available in our mPulse sauna. Get in touch with us today if you’d like to learn more.
