Infrared Sauna Services We Provide
Private Eyes Studios is proud to offer a new technique for health and relaxation.
Now offering a FAR Infrared Sauna wrap therapy.
You might be wondering - why a wrap? Can’t I just go sit in a sauna? Yes, you certainly could. A basic Sauna isn’t going to provide you with the FAR Infrared. You could seek out a FAR Infrared Sauna, however you still won’t be receiving all the benefits of being wrapped directly in the sauna. An infrared body wrap can be 25% more effective in providing wellness benefits than an infrared sauna. Infrared heat seems to be more effective when it does not have to travel through as much space to reach the body. For example, the gap between your body and the radiant heating elements in a sauna may be from 6 inches to a couple of feet with the space lowering the effective amount of energy reaching your skin. During a wrap the design permits gaps of 1 millimeter to perhaps 6 inches; less loss due to distance means more energy and more sweat.

Infrared Sauna Wrap
30 - 50 min | $35 - $55
Detoxing can help remove toxins that build up in our system that can cause sickness, aches, pains, allergies, mood swings, and so much more.
Expelling heavy metals and organic acids through sweating can help rebalance digestion and your metabolism, and both of those can impact skin health and clarity. Sweat released through an infrared treatment contains as much as 20% fats and toxins, compared to 3-5% in regular sweat. These toxins include alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid, and ammonia.
The primary benefits of this technique are:
Enhance Immune System Health
Each Far Infrared Sauna session causes a brief, beneficial increase in a body temperature, which improves immune system health by boosting production of infection-fighting white blood cells by your bone marrow and killer T-cells by your thymus.
Improves Cardiovascular Health
Medical research shows that regular use of a Far Infrared Sauna may be as effective for cardiovascular conditioning as exercise. As the body heats up, it cools itself by sending blood from internal organs to the extremities and the skin, thus increasing heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate.
Stress Relief and Relaxation
High daily stress levels put constant strain on the body's nervous system and can contribute to chronic disease. The Far Infrared Sauna helps to reduce physical stress by boosting circulation and triggering the production of endorphins, the "feel good" hormones.
Far infrared therapy can help maintain healthy levels of cortisol, the stress hormone, which can raise your heart rate and blood pressure. Lowered cortisol levels lead to a feeling of deep relaxation that extends beyond the session, even improving your quality of sleep.
Infrared treatments can also increase levels of the happiness hormone, serotonin, giving you an overall feeling of wellbeing, happiness, and lowered-anxiety.
Taking time to relax during a wrap session can do wonders for physical and mental wellbeing. Downtime is good for heart health, can improve sleep, help with digestion issues, boost your memory, strengthen your immune system, fight depression, relieve anxiety, and increase your mood stability, just to name a few.
Fitness, Weight Loss & Cellulite Control
Toxins can play a significant role in preventing us from losing weight as well as gaining weight. The body will even create fat to store chemical toxins when they exceed the body's ability to store them. Those wishing to lose weight should also note that the cardiovascular effect from a single sauna session burns as many as 600 calories during a 30 minute session and 1,000 during a 50 minute session.
Incorporating infrared sessions with a healthy lifestyle can help you reach health and fitness goals. One of the most notable and exciting benefits is weight loss. During an wrap session, your body’s core temperature is raised above 100.6°F, which causes your body to enter a cool-down mode, inducing 3-5 times more sweat than exercise alone. And since sweating burns calories, you’ll burn a lot of calories during your session.
Infrared can also rebalance your metabolism, speeding up the rate at which calories are burned through your session, and after.
Fat becomes water-soluble at 100.5°F and can break up into smaller particles, which can be purged from the body through the lymphatic system. Because fat becomes water soluble at body temperatures reached during a wrap session, some of this fat is flushed out through the lymphatic system, and pockets of fat known as cellulite can decrease in size. Combined with infrared’s collagen rebuilding benefits, those fat deposits can be rearranged further away from the skin’s surface, which will help prevent the accumulation of cellulite.
Infrared treatments can lower your lactic acid levels after a workout, so not only can the heat soothe sore muscles, but it can aid in speeding up muscle recovery. An infrared treatment prior to a workout can help increase endurance.
Pain Relief and Pain Management
By dilating blood vessels, infrared heat increases blood circulation to injured areas, speeding up the healing process and relieving pain. Infrared heat has also been used extensively in the treatment of arthritis, rheumatism, and muscle spasms.
Infrared waves penetrate the body to create heat that results in immediate therapeutic benefits through increased blood flow and tissue oxygenation that provides more energy to heal. The study by Matsushita et al. (2008) found that chronic pain patients experienced a significant reduction in pain levels (nearly 70%) after the first session of infrared therapy. Pain experience also decreased significantly and remained low throughout the observation period.
Heat is well-documented as a therapy for many kinds of pain. Because infrared heat can soothe agitated nerve endings, the wrap can help ease and manage pain caused by a multitude of conditions and injuries.
Infrared also increases circulation dramatically, from 5-7 quarts per minute, to as much as 13 quarts per minute. This increase in nutrient and oxygen rich blood flow can help heal the body and relieve pain.
Beautifies the Skin
Profuse perspiration deeply cleanses the skin, creating beautiful and improved tone, texture, and color.
