Frequently Asked Questions
Who is this treatment suitable for?
Sauna light therapy is suitable for anybody wanting to support their overall health and wellbeing. However, the scientific benefits may be of particular interest to those wanting to lose weight, ease pain and inflammation, and promote a radiant complexion and younger looking skin.
How does infrared sauna light therapy work?
While a sauna is often considered to be the ultimate in relaxation, the radiant heat of the infrared sauna excites particles at a molecular level. This triggers a cascade of responses in the body, similar to those produced by vigorous exercise – for example, stimulating blood circulation, collagen production, immune function, and metabolic processes.
As the body adapts to the induced heat it also causes significant sweating, effectively removing any toxic metals and chemicals that have been interfering in the body’s own natural processes.
What is the infrared sauna made of?
At our Darwin clinic we have specifically chosen an infrared sauna made of Canadian hemlock wood to ensure the best experience for our clients. This type of timber has little or no scent, and is known for its hypoallergenic properties and low toxicity after being kiln dried.
How long is a typical session?
A typical sauna light therapy session lasts for about 15 to 30 minutes.
Is it safe?
When supervised by trained professionals, infrared sauna light therapy is considered to be safe.
There are some cautions around the use of sauna treatment for individuals with certain health conditions eg epilepsy, so at Ageless Health our medical professionals will assess your suitability prior to treatment.
