Infra Sauna

For up to 8 people
Temperature: 45-50 °C
Time to be spent in the cabin: 40-50 minutes / round

Why is infra sauna the better one?

The infra sauna works in a different way than the Finish one. Here the infra beam can enter the body into a depth of 1 cm under the skin and this way it dissolves the  unnecessary and poisonous materials then helps them leave the body through the sweat glands.

It is customary at the beauty parlours that cellulitis is treated in infra saunas as this removes cellulitis as the light  enters the skin at least three times the depth as other treatments, therefore this is the most effective method.

During 30 minutes of infra sauna treatment ca. 600-800 calories might be burned and we do not even have to do sports for this! Studies showed that the human body burns almost the same amount of calories here as during active sporting.

There are only good effects, so let’s go to the infra sauna!
