Sauna

FFC West Loop is adding an Infrared Sauna with Red Light Therapy in our Spa in late May!

When your body warms up, it taps into a variety of natural, beneficial processes that increase metabolism, improve skin, boost mood, eliminate toxins, burn fat, and more. Infrared heat provides all the healthy benefits of natural sunlight without any of the dangerous effects of solar radiation.

Infrared heaters warm the body in the same manner as natural sunlight. Infrared heat therapy uses the wavelength of the visible and non-visible light spectrum of sunlight that heats the body normally. Traditional saunas raise the temperature of the air to a very high level within the chamber to warm the body. Some people have difficulty breathing in this extremely warm air. Infrared saunas work differently. Instead of heating the air within the enclosure, infrared saunas heat the body directly. The result is deeper tissue penetration. In an infrared sauna, the body perspires and receives all of the healthy benefits but avoids the harmful and extremely hot air of a traditional steam sauna.

Our Infrared sauna also has red light therapy technology. The technology dates back to the early 1990s. Red light therapy was used as a tool to help grow plants in space because it helps promote healthy cell growth and regeneration. Today the use of red light therapy is especially popular amongst athletes seeking help for joint pain and inflammation, physical performance, and skin health.
