INFRARED SAUNA

Relax While You Detoxify, Recover and Heal

 

Feel your stress melt away in MIH’s physician-supervised infrared sauna. Devoid of harmful UV rays, our sauna’s full-spectrum infrared energy gently penetrates your skin up to three inches deep and warms your core body temperature. 

As you sweat, feel confident that you are purging excess heavy metals and other toxins that could lead to illness and disease, making room for new, healthy cells. 

Even as you unlock tension and relax in our infrared sauna, your overall circulation increases, aiding in the repair of tissues, muscles and joints, making infrared sauna treatments ideal for managing chronic pain and recovering after athletic activities.

While you decompress, promote cardiovascular conditioning and burn up to 600 calories thanks to the gently increased heart rate prompted by the infrared sauna treatment.

Infrared Sauna vs Regular Sauna

 

Traditional saunas heat the air to uncomfortably hot levels, often making it difficult to breathe, let alone relax. The penetrative infrared light more efficiently and comfortably heats your core temperature directly. This encourages your body to sweat out 7 times more toxins per session than in conventional saunas.

Upon entering Matzinger Institute of Healing, you are greeted with a pleasant, spa-like atmosphere and will immediately notice our focus is on healing, not just treatment. That continues with our physician supervised infrared sauna experience with the option to tailor your session based on your desires or needs.

Take a Technology Break

 

Unlike other infrared spa providers, MIH chooses to minimize EMF toxicity by not installing televisions in our sauna rooms. Although you may choose to take your cell phone into the infrared sauna, Dr. Matzinger recommends against it. Our goal is to provide a healthy, healing environment for total relaxation.

Customize Your Infrared Sauna Experience

 

MIH encourages you to make your infrared sauna experience your very own by choosing from the following:

  • Attire

    Although we recommend enjoying your infrared sauna experience in the nude so perspiration is not impeded, you may choose to wear a swimsuit, undergarments, or a towel.

  • Chromotherapy

    Relax in pink light, focus on healing with blue light or simply choose a light color that appeals to you.

  • Aromatherapy

    Focus your session on relaxation, healing or renewal with your choice of one of our selection of doTerra essential oils. 

  • Session Length

    Choose anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes. You are in control of the session length and can stop it at any time.

  • Temperature

    Although Dr. Matzinger recommends 120 degrees for optimal relaxation and healing, you may choose to increase your temperature up to 140 degrees using the soft-touch LED control panel inside the infrared sauna.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are infrared saunas safe?


Yes. Infrared saunas use far infrared light to create heat without harmful UV rays. While a traditional sauna warms the air around you, infrared saunas use radiant energy to raise the core temperature of the body. Hospitals have used infrared heating elements in neonatal beds for years to keep newborn babies warm, and infrared heat is also used in some hot yoga facilities.




How do I prepare for my infrared sauna session?


Dr. Matzinger recommends patients arrive hydrated by drinking at least 16 ounces of water prior to arrival. It is preferable not to eat, but if necessary, limit eating to a light snack. Avoid wearing makeup if possible to allow for maximum perspiration. Wearing comfortable, non-restrictive clothing is advised.




How frequently are your infrared saunas cleaned? What kind of cleaning products do you use?


All surfaces are thoroughly cleaned after each session using antibacterial solutions. We follow strict COVID-19 protocol for medical facilities. This includes the utilization of coronavirus cleansing solutions approved by the EPA on all handles, furniture, and surfaces. Additionally, the intense heat of the infrared sauna itself destroys harmful pathogens.




At what temperature will my infrared sauna be set?


Temperatures in our saunas are adjustable and can be set at a personally customized temperature between 120 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit.




What should I wear in the infrared sauna?


We recommend patients use our infrared saunas while nude to allow for more natural perspiration and more effective toxin release, but you can wear a towel or a swimsuit if you desire.




Can I use the infrared sauna if I have a medical condition?


Please consult your physician or schedule a free consultation with Dr. Matzinger before using our infrared sauna.




Can I use the infrared sauna if I take prescription medications?


Please consult your physician or schedule a free consultation with Dr. Matzinger before using our infrared sauna.




Can I use the infrared sauna if I’m pregnant?


Unfortunately, expectant mothers are not approved to use our infrared sauna.




Is the infrared sauna an effective hangover remedy?


No. Proper hydration is required for using the infrared sauna. Alcohol dehydrates the body and those suffering from “hangover” symptoms are suffering from significant dehydration. However, our Vitamin and Mineral Infusions are an excellent way to recover from a hangover. Ask us for more information or schedule a free consultation with Dr. Matzinger.




How often should I schedule infrared sauna sessions?


Our infrared saunas can be used as often as daily, but you can schedule at your convenience. If you are consulting with Dr. Matzinger, she may recommend a more personally-tailored schedule.




Can I bring someone to my session?


No. In order to better achieve our goals for healing and relaxation, our infrared sauna sessions are for just you alone.




Can I bring a child to my session?


No. As explained above, our infrared sauna sessions are a solo activity. We do not have child care facilities in place to allow for children to accompany you on your visit.




What are my options for aromatherapy?


To better create a soothing environment of calm and healing, we offer patients a choice from our selection of doTerra oils for diffusion during your session. Lavender - Calm and relax with the comforting aroma of Lavender. Serenity - This blend provides a soothing aroma and creates a restful environment. Adaptiv - Improve your sustained attention with this calming melange of oils. Breathe - A remarkable blend of essential oils which helps maintain clear airways and breathing and can also minimize the effects of seasonal threats. Lemon Eucalyptus - Refresh and cleanse your atmosphere with the invigorating aroma of Lemon Eucalyptus. Citrus Bliss - A blend of seven citrus essential oils with a hint of Vanilla Absolute, Citrus Bliss promotes a positive environment. Peace - Surround yourself in a calm and peaceful aroma with this reassuring essential oil blend.
