sauna

using a totally natural form of light that we feel as heat, an infrared sauna session is great after a tough workout and can help you soothe your aches and pains. at yue float we offer a full spectrum infrared sauna experience, using near, mid and far infrared technologies.

users say that the benefits not only cover the easing of muscle aches and pains but also encourage an enhancement in blood flow, giving the skin a healthy glow. infra red infrared therapy has long been used in body and muscle treatments and is an established and effective tool for natural healing and prevention. a session in one of our spacious saunas is a pleasant and rewarding experience, where unlike a traditional sauna, you have complete control over the temperature, intensity, lighting and audio. if you want to keep yourself in balance, the benefits of an infrared sauna may be just what you need to achieve your wellness goals.

are there side effects?

despite being at a much lower temperature compared to conventional saunas, infrared saunas still pose the low level risks of a typical sauna, primarily a risk of dehydration. drink water before, during and after your session to stay hydrated.

if left untreated, dehydration can quickly progress into something much more serious, such as heat exhaustion or heat stroke. heat stroke occurs when the body is no longer able to cool itself down after being exposed to excessive heat over a period of time. heat stroke can cause serious repercussions including death.
it is therefore vital that you exit the infrared sauna immediately if you feel any of the beginning warning signs of heatstroke including nausea, headache, fainting, dizziness or rapid heart beat.
