Bring Sunlighten’s healing infrared into your wellness rhythm, and experience the benefits of the most effective, highest quality near, mid and far infrared available.
By increasing your heart rate, infrared saunas help speed up the breakdown of metabolic waste from your muscles, like lactic acid, and increase blood flow to aid injury recovery.
As your core temperature rises in an infrared sauna, you sweat and your heart rate increases to help you cool down. This also speeds up your metabolism (in the same way exercise does) and helps you burn more calories.
The infrared wavelengths cause the fat cells in the adipose tissue to vibrate, making them disperse and release heavy metals and toxins into the bloodstream to be expelled through the skin, kidneys, and other organs that function to eliminate toxins.
Howwww do I book? You can purchase “SAUNA FEELS” single sessions or packages through the feels pilates app and book the sauna on the same TIMETABLE you book your classes.
How long is the session? You have the sauna space for 50 minutes. You can choose to sauna for the whole time or less.
What do I bring? 1. Water! 2. A BIG towel to sit on, some people also bring a second towel to dry off
What do I wear in the sauna? Ideally just your birthday suit and your towel but you can bring your swimmers, whatever you wear will get pretty soaked with sweat. The sauna rooms have locks on them (not the sauna itself) so no concern about someone opening the door on you.
How many people can fit in the sauna? Avalon - one person Narrabeen - two person (you can bring a friend for free but they also need their own TOWEL)
Do you have a shower? Avalon has a shower but Narrabeen currently doesn’t, however most people wait until they get home to shower, they just dry themselves off when they get out or use the face wipes provided.
The Infrared sauna works to increase your core body temperature. If you have a shower straight after your sauna, this will lower your core body temperature. Research shows if you don’t have a shower, your core body temperature will continue to be raised for 30-60 minutes post sauna!
