Infrared

Not your traditional sauna, the Poppi’s sauna experience combines far infrared sauna technology and chromotherapy to rejuvenate the mind body and soul.

Book With Us

 Step into our Sunlighten Community Solocarbon Far Infrared Sauna for a slice of heaven. With 15 infrared heating panels, Light Therapy & a Premium Sound System, we think you’ll be relaxed before you can google solocarbon. Our sauna is fully ADA compliant and can host a client of any level of physical ability, and includes a space for a wheelchair. If you’re searching for the safest infrared heater on the market, look no further than our very own Solocarbon heated sauna. Their proprietary design creates almost zero EMF, or electromagnetic fields and is a zero emissions as they use little glue or wiring harness that could potentially release fumes. Additionally, infrared therapy is extremely safe because the body has its own process for naturally filtering for the infrared heat it needs called resonant absorption. In fact, infrared light is so safe that it is used in hospitals to warm newborn babies!

How Infrared Sauna Therapy Works

Our infrared sauna combines the helpful infrared rays with therapeutic visible light through chromotherapy in your sauna session. By eliminating the sun’s damaging UV rays we provide a safe, restorative space that will leave you rejuvenated and restored.

The far infrared heat surrounds you and penetrates through our skin, muscles, joints, and tissues to increase circulation, boost oxygen flow, and help rid the body of harmful toxins. Using our sauna helps to remove impurities from your cells, specifically the cells inside our fat where our body stores waste and harmful toxins such as cholesterol and heavy metals.

Detox The Body

We consume more toxic materials today than we ever have in recent history. Toxins of all sorts bombarde us everyday – heavy metals in our environment, hormones in our meat, and even pesticides on our produce – but Poppi’s is here to help you detox, be your best & feel your best!

Unlike some other detoxification methods, infrared saunas are safe & effective every time and will leave every cell of your body feeling rejuvenated.

How?

Infrared sauna heat increases your blood circulation to help stimulate the sweat glands, releasing built up toxins in the body which can then be eliminated by the liver and bowel. Regular infrared sauna sessions can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of accumulated highly toxic metals such as lead, mercury, nickel, alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid, and other organic and inorganic compounds.

Burn Calories

Enhances real weight loss, not just water weight. Infrared saunas are a weight loss aide of your dreams. An infrared sauna burns 300-600 calories in a 30 minute session. 

But are we just losing water weight?

NO! Yes, you will lose water weight in a session, but you will also burn up to 600 calories due to the increase in metabolic rate. 

How?

As you relax in an infrared sauna, your body is hard at work producing sweat, vigorously pumping blood, and burning pesky calories. As your body increases sweat production to cool itself off, your heart will work harder to pump blood at a greater rate to boost circulation. This increase in your metabolism will burn calories all while you relax, as well as long after your session ends. Making an infrared sauna the best pre-workout you can get!

According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, regular use of an infrared sauna imparts a similar stress on the cardiovascular system as that of running, and regular use may be as effective a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories as regular exercise.

Enhance Immune System

We wash our hands often, take our necessary vitamins, & avoid cooties the best we can, but without a healthy immune system you are vulnerable. Regular sessions in an Infrared Sauna helps to naturally boost the immune system and helps to carry off metabolic waste. Infrared heat is antibacterial unlike the conditions in a traditional steam room. 

How?

Every 30-minute infrared Sauna session raises your body’s core temperature inducing an artificial fever. A fever is the body’s natural mechanism to strengthen and accelerate the immune response, as seen in the case of infection or virus presence. This enhanced immune system, combined with improved elimination of toxins and wastes via intense sweating, increases your overall health and resistance to disease.

Not only will you come out of every session glowing on the outside, but you’ll be stronger on the inside.

Clears & Improves Skin

Glowing skin may be all the rage, but clear skin is always in. Our Infrared Sauna can help you achieve both. A sweat session helps you to release impurities and toxins that cause breakouts and dull skin. Also, reducing stress can help balance out your hormones which can in turn balance out you skin. 

How?

The sweating achieved during your 30-minute infrared sauna session takes away deeply imbedded impurities and dead skin cells. This leaves the skin glowing and immaculately clean.

Increased circulation draws your skin’s own natural nutrients to the surface. As a result, you will see improved tone, elasticity, texture and fresh color. Increased circulation has also been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, lesions and cuts. Plus – cellulite reduction is an added benefit! The increased heart rate and localized blood circulation works together to stop fatty deposits and fibrosis from accumulating liquids in the fat cells to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Leave every sauna session with detoxed skin cells & a deep glow!

Improves Sleep

It’s hard enough to find time to get those precious 8 hours each night, so you don’t need your body fighting sleep too. Insomnia is experienced by 1 in 3 people in the US. Let our Infrared Sauna help you restore your natural sleep pattern. During a session you can expect to experience relaxation, a balancing of stress hormones and a calmer nervous system. Be ready to release tension in the body and mind. 

How?

Not only are infrared saunas relaxing, but the chromotherapy included in each session has sleep inducing benefits as well. Blue, for example, is a mentally relaxing color that has a pacifying effect on the nervous system encouraging great relaxation. It is ideal for sleep problems.

Relaxing, soothing blue rays combined with infrared heat bring great calm and peace to the mind that is worried, excited, or in a constant nervous state.

Over time, these therapies will improve natural melatonin and other sleep related hormone levels to help you get better rest naturally.

Pro Tips

Before Your Session

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Most people do not drink enough water to begin with and now that you are using an infrared sauna and sweating, it is even more imperative to stay hydrated. Always drink plenty of water before, during and after your sauna sessions. Remove all makeup to allow your skin to receive the experience and the full benefits of the infrared heat. We have professional facial cleanser in the locker rooms for you.

During Your Session

You may not sweat much during your first 2-3 sauna sessions. This is normal for many people, as they haven’t had a recent history of sweating, and it takes a few sessions to “retrain” the body to do what comes naturally.

Take care not to overheat during your first few sessions. As the body continues to adjust, sweating can increase dramatically and body temperature regulation becomes more effective.

If the sauna cabin becomes too hot or stuffy, you may open the door to let some fresh air inside. Drink at least 10 ounces of water. Stretching your arms, legs and back area during your session creates more body flexibility. Massage congested and “knotty” muscle areas to help alleviate pain.

AfterYour Session

When you finish your sauna session, it is important to relax and cool down while your body continues to perspire. Sit or recline for about 10 minutes to allow your body to acclimate to the environment. Feel free to shower 20-30 minutes after your session.

Want an extra metabolism boost? Do some yoga or light cardio in the lounge after you have acclimated back to the environmental temperature.
