The Infra red sauna at Acheshifters is situated in a dedicated room providing perfect privacy once you lock the door. As it is actually built for two it offers ample space for an individual to relax and melt away the stresses and strain most of us experience day to day. Other features include: an oxygen ioniser, light therapy, aromatherapy, relaxing music and a reading lamp. As there is no steam, it is quite safe to bring in a book to read or electronic devices should you wish to play your own music or read from such a device..

An IR sauna offers a much more pleasant environment than conventional saunas due to the fundamental differences between them;

No steam – therefore no overpowering humidity and much a lower cabin temperature. Conventional saunas can be 80-100+ degrees Celsius because of the steam and needing to warm you from the outside in, whereas IR saunas operate with a cabin temperature somewhere between 45-52 degrees Celsius because the IR energy warms you from the inside out so the cabin temperature need not be so high. Plus, the temperature an be controlled by the user using the electronic control panel inside the cabin.

The benefits of an Infra-red sauna include:

  • Weight loss.
  • Relief of tired and aching muscles.
  • Detoxification.
  • Deep relaxation.
  • Relief from many skin conditions such as: eczema and psoriasis.

You can sweat 2 to 3 times more in an Infra-red sauna than a conventional steam sauna and burn up to 1000 calories in a 30 minute session! This is because the body needs to use energy to cool itself just as it does to warm itself. The increase in metabolic rate to generate sweat for cooling consumes calories to do this. Fit people with an already well-functioning metabolism will tend to burn more calories than those not so fit, which makes the IR sauna ideal for breaking down that stubborn brown fat.

Because the IR sauna promotes such deep cleansing sweating it is an excellent way to detoxify, bringing out lots of those nasties lurking deep within the tissues. Infra red penetrates deep into the tissues (around 40mm) warming from the inside out flushing toxins in the process. Dry skin cells also come away while sweating in the IR sauna, which is good news for sufferers of skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. These conditions generally improve during the summer months; it is thought that the infra-red part of the spectrum from the Sun is what reduces the severity of these conditions during that time of the year. The IR sauna at Acheshifters generates infra-red energy in the most useful part of the spectrum and therefore, with regular use, is an effective option for sufferers to manage their condition.

Tired and aching muscles benefit greatly from a session in the IR sauna. While not a substitute for remedial treatment for injuries or dysfunctional muscles, the IR sauna is perfect for the type of fatigue that comes from a hard day’s manual work or from a long day toiling at a computer. The deep penetrating IR energy makes short work of those tired and sore muscles, leaving you feeling fresh to tackle another day.
