Infrared Therapy

Featuring the world’s FIRST and ONLY 3-in-1 full spectrum Infrared technology by Sunlighten, Infrared Therapy at Psoas might appear like a traditional sauna experience yet delivers a host of unique benefits to compliment your bodywork and chiropractic treatment and your wellness goals. Using the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum consisting of near (NIR), mid (MIR) and far (FIR) rays, our infrared therapy unit is effective at heating the body directly in a soothing, healthy way instead of just warming the surrounding air

Why choose Infrared Therapy (IRT):

Many Psoas clients are pairing IRT with their manual bodywork/chiropractic. Infrared Therapy is a great way to warm up, soften and relax your body + muscle tissue prior to your massage or chiropractic OR to release additional tension after your session. It is also a great pick me up if you’re feeling the need to refresh your system, and we see a lot of people coming in for mid-day standalone sessions. It’s newer to our clinic and people are praising the benefits so far. 

These are the health benefits we are loving: 

  • muscle recovery
  • help with inflammation
  • improved flexibility
  • pain relief
  • detoxification of the entire body (including the skin, kidney, and liver) 
  • relaxation + stress relief

Infrared waves penetrate human tissue which heats the body directly at the core resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where most toxins reside. This type of heat is completely safe and healthy for all living things.  You can be exposed to infrared light for hours without the risk of burning.  Infrared is a naturally occurring output of the sun but does not contain the harmful UV rays associated with unprotected sunlight.  In fact, infrared’s gentle heat is used in hospitals to warm newborn infants. 

In a beautifully crafted and spacious Eucalyptus “sauna” or “lightbox” (as we like to call it), clients can sit back or lie down to relax or even enjoy a stretching routine. Turn on the visible light therapy known as, chromotherapy, and link up to our Bluetooth speaker to have an immersive experience. 

Sessions are 45-minutes long and vary in temperature up to 145 degrees Fahrenheit. 

We recommend being well hydrated before your session. You will sweat at varying degrees, and we have towels for you to wipe down after your session.

Please note, if you take prescription medications or are pregnant, we recommend you check our contraindications page and consult with your physician to see if infrared therapy is right for you.
