Why an Infrared Sauna?

When you regularly take an infrared sauna we are confident you will begin to feel better and perform better. You’ll go to sleep relaxed, and wake up refreshed and with clarity. There are so many health benefits to Infrared Sauna treatments, which is why at Healthful we are all huge fans!

Infrared is a safe wavelength of light (or energy) which the body feels as heat. Infrared works by heating the body directly, warming us safely to create a cardiovascular workout on the body and at the same time removing heavy metals and toxins.

Benefits of using an Infrared Sauna


When the sauna raises your core body temperature, your body’s natural reaction is to sweat. When you sweat in a relaxed state, it promotes blood flow to your organs, creating a detox that starts at the cellular level and reaches the whole body. 

Reduce Stress

Relaxation is key in finding balance mentally, emotionally, and physically. Infrared light helps to boost natural feel-good neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine so you can have more happy days. Yes please to more of that! Creating a meditative ritual around your sauna time is a great way to achieve a deeper sense of calm.

Anti Inflammatory

Infrared sauna has been shown to reduce inflammatory markers in the body. We know that inflammation affects overall health so anything we can do to reduce it we are all over!

Pain Relief

By stimulating mitochondria at a cellular level, Infrared Sauna can improve circulation, oxygenation, and healing responses to give relief to joint and muscle pain sufferers.


Infrared Sauna provides a natural boost in circulation with regular use attributed to weight loss. It's like a gentle workout you have while sitting down, yay!


Infrared sauna activates the para sympathetic nervous system leaving us calm and relaxed, book an evening session to help you wind down. 

Immune Boost

Strengthen your immune response with an Infrared Sauna session. The heat of the sauna raises your body temperature, which triggers your cells natural immune response. 


Wear what feels comfortable but know that you are going to get a sweat up! We say get your kit off (lock the door) or wear your fave cossie. Seasoned Infrared Sauna devotees like to arrive in light clothing (like a kaftan) as it's easier to get dressed afterwards. We provide cooled towels and dry towels to wipe down during and after your sauna, no shower facilities available but a dip in Glenelg beach sounds like fun.

This is your time to rest and reset. You can sit quietly, read a book or Bluetooth your mobile phone to the sauna and listen to your favourite podcast, audiobook, music or a guided meditation. We advise not to take phones inside the sauna itself and to disconnect your device before you leave the sauna room.

After your sauna feel free to take five in our reception area, we will happily make you a herbal tea to sip. Please remember to hydrate, drink plenty of water over the next 24-48 hours to help your body flush toxins.
