What is an Infrared Sauna? 

An infrared sauna uses infrared heaters to emit radiant heat, which is absorbed by the skin and penetrates deeply into the body, offering a variety of health advantages. In contrast to conventional saunas that warm the surrounding air, infrared saunas use infrared light to directly heat the body.

When combining infrared sauna therapy with IV therapy, clients may experience even greater benefits. The IV therapy’s hydration and nutrient infusion support the body’s detoxification process during sauna usage, while the sauna enhances the absorption of nutrients from the IV therapy. This potent combination may result in a boosted immune system, improved mental clarity, and increased overall energy levels.

The Benefits of Infrared Sauna 

The DRIPBaR Richmond’s infrared sauna therapy appeals to a wide range of individuals, offering several benefits within a serene and calming environment.

  • Stress relief

  • Immune system support
  • Improved circulation

But that’s not all; infrared saunas may also provide additional advantages such as diabetes support, reducing the appearance of cellulite, assisting with cardiovascular conditions like peripheral vascular disease and heart failure, and offering potential relief for autoimmune conditions like rheumatoid arthritis and seasonal allergies, among others.

No matter your health and fitness objectives, incorporating infrared saunas into your routine is a highly recommended choice.

How Does an Infrared Sauna Work at The DRIPBaR Richmond

The infrared sauna at The DRIPBaR Richmond functions through the use of infrared heaters that emit radiant heat, offering a diverse array of health benefits.

These heaters produce infrared radiation, which is a type of electromagnetic radiation akin to the heat emitted by the sun. When you sit inside the infrared sauna, your body absorbs this radiation, which penetrates deep into your skin and generates internal body heat. This process induces sweating, which aids in the elimination of toxins and impurities from your system.

Compared to traditional saunas, infrared saunas typically operate at lower temperatures, ranging from 85°F to 120°F. This feature makes them more comfortable for individuals who may find traditional saunas excessively hot or uncomfortable.
