Infrared sauna

From deep detoxification to pain relief and muscle recovery, our infrared sauna is a rejuvenating and science-backed tool to enhance your health and wellness.

Infrared sauna in Lincoln, NE

Our infrared sauna uses infrared heaters to emit infrared radiant heat, which is absorbed directly by the body’s surface. Unlike traditional saunas that heat the air around you, infrared saunas penetrate the skin more deeply, leading to a number of health benefits like detoxification, muscle recovery, stress reduction, improved sleep, and better circulation.

When you book our recovery room, you get private access to both the infrared sauna and cold plunge tub. During your allotted time, you have complete freedom to use either or both amenities as you choose. Read more about the benefits of contrast therapy here.

Best practices

If you are new to infrared sauna therapy, start with shorter sessions, such as 15 to 20 minutes, and gradually increase the duration as your body becomes accustomed to the heat.

The recommended session duration is between 20-45 minutes, and the sauna typically operates in an ideal range between 120-150℉. Find a comfortable position in the sauna and relax as the heat does the work for you. Many people choose to meditate or listen to a calming playlist, meditation, or audiobook during their session.

Be sure to stay well-hydrated before, during, and after your infrared sauna session as sweating leads to fluid loss and dehydration.
