Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna (FSIR)
What is Infrared therapy?
Infrared rays are part of the invisible light spectrum and is what you feel as warmth from the sun without the harmful UV rays. The Luminary offers a 4-person full spectrum Infrared Sauna with medical grade chromotherapy and can be booked privately or as a group. Full spectrum means the entire Infrared spectrum of near, mid and far wavelengths are used ensuring that you receive the whole benefit of radiant infrared heat penetrating deep into your body’s tissues and muscles.The IR rays heat your body directly helping to increase your core body temperature. Approximately 80% heats your body and 20% the air so there is little humidity. If you get too warm, you can lower the temperature or open the doors for a few minutes as the IR heaters will continue to heat your body. Warming your body aids in stimulating your immune, cardiovascular and lymphatic systems, which will cause you to sweat. The IR sauna’s base temp is set between 120-125 degrees as this ensures the infrared heaters are at their optimal performance for the start of your session and you get to adjust the temperature to your preference throughout your session.

Red Light Therapy
We are now offering the option of Red Light therapy with your sauna session! A combination of red light (660nm) and near infrared (850nm) wavelengths reducing oxidative stress and stimulating the production of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate). This process, known as Photobiomodulation, has been extensively researched for many years and adds measurable energy to the mitochondria of your cells and rejuvenates your skin. The additional near infrared waves are absorbed deep below the surface of the skin. Which is then absorbed by the light receptors in our cell’s mitochondria, promoting cellular regeneration and anti-aging. Our Red Light tower is the only brand that uses variable optics so you get a wider range of coverage thereby maximizing the amount of light absorbed by the human body.
Some of the proven benefits are:
• Reduction of Chronic and Acute Pain
• Skin Rejuvenation (boost collagen & elastin production)
• Tissue Regeneration and anti-aging• Wound Healing
• Muscle Recovery
• Muscle Conditioning
• Testosterone Boost
• Reduced Inflammation
What to expect?
How to use fsir
Drink at least 16 oz of water and bring a water bottle with you to drink as you need while in the sauna. It’s important to be hydrated and at any time if you feel dizzy or faint, leave the sauna immediately.
Avoid big meals
Avoid eating a big meal prior to your session as you could get a less effective result when your body is diverting some of its energy towards digestion. Insulated water tumblers are great to bring along and enjoy a refreshing cool drink of water during your sauna.
If it is your first appointment, please arrive at least 10 minutes before your scheduled time for any needed paperwork or questions. Enjoy a complimentary beverage and relax while using a Himalayan salt foot dome in our Zen Den lobby. Once checked in, you will be shown to your sauna room where you can change into loose fitting and breathable clothes.
never use fragrance
Never spray/apply or use any sort of fragrance/oil/topical in the sauna or the outside room. There will be 3 Towels in the sauna, 2 smaller towels one to wipe perspiration and the other for your feet and 1 larger towel you can fold over for more cushion to sit on. There will also be a fresh towel outside the sauna to dry off.
Let go and relax!
You may be alone where you can sit or lay in silence or choose from Binaural beats or music of your choosing. Most people focus on their breathing, meditate or simply Let Go and relax during their session. You an also go with friends or family as it is a 4 person sauna! If at any time you feel dizzy, lightheaded or faint, exit the sauna immediately, sit down, hydrate and turn the fan in the room on that will blow cold air on you.
Watch the timer to see when your session is done. You can adjust the temperature as you need during the session and choose from an array of chromotherapy light colors and music.
Exit the sauna
Once the session is complete, exit the sauna and wipe any perspiration with your fresh towel, throw all of your towels into the Owl hamper, leave the door open and then you’re ready to change back into your clothes and freshen up.
Plan to have a few glasses of water afterward. This will help to lower potential discomfort you may experience from your body detoxing (first timers). which may occur up to 2 hours after your session. This will also help avoid dehydration (uncommon) if you’re not well hydrated prior to the session.
Enjoy Your Day
Once finished, you can head back out into the world, while you bask in your post-sauna glow!

Our infrared sauna produces the same infrared heat produced by the sun and Infrared heat is required for all living things for optimum health. This radiant heat increases the thermal energy in joints, muscles and tissues. When used as intended as part of a healthy lifestyle, our infrared sauna may help living well with certain chronic diseases or conditions.Infrared heat is all around us and you have felt it from sources like fire, heated sand on the beach and the sun (without the harmful ultraviolet waves that the sun gives off). Just as visible light has a range of wavelengths (running from red to violet), so does infrared light: longer wavelength infrared waves are thermal, while short or near infrared waves are not hot at all, in fact, you cannot even feel them. Near and mid infrared enhance the benefits of far infrared.
