  • 22) How much does it cost each month to operate, is infrared sauna energy efficient?
    Infrared energy is extremely efficient and costs very little to operate each month. For each hour of sauna usage, it costs about 15 – 20 cents. We tell our customers if they took a 1 hour sauna session for 30 days in a row, it would cost around $20 - $40 on their monthly utility statement. Our sauna products are cost efficient to operate.
  • 10) Are infrared saunas better than traditional saunas?
    Not necessarily. However, the heat from Infrared Saunas will penetrate at a much deeper level than traditional saunas. Studies performed indicate that the heat will penetrate 1 – 1.5 inches into your muscle tissue. With traditional saunas, the heat only penetrates to about 1/8 of an inch. Any time you can get heat into your muscle tissue at approximately 1 – 1.5 inches, there are multiple health benefits that come from this.
  • 4) How does the shipping process work?
    Each sauna cost approximately $400 to ship. The shipper first must call you to schedule a delivery, they will NOT just show up. Shippers typically will NOT go into your home or take them upstairs or downstairs because of liability reasons.

    All our saunas take about 1 -2 hours to assemble and install. Only a flat head & Phillips head screwdriver and ladder are needed.

    They have been scrutinized and tested at the highest levels and have all the major certifications which include both ETL and CETL. No laminates and NO toxic glues are used in the construction of the sauna. In fact the interior of our saunas are blind nailed (no nail heads showing) and smooth sanded by hand.
  • 11) What is your sauna warranty?
    Our warranty is “Lifetime” and/or 5 years on the heaters and electrical. This is the very best warranty you can get in the industry.
  • 18) Why are carbon fiber heaters better than ceramic heaters?
    There are no “hot spots” with Carbon heaters, and the heat is evenly distributed throughout the cabin. This gives you a much better and even heating session, allowing the far infrared rays to be absorbed into more of your body which makes it much more beneficial to use.
  • 29) Do your saunas require a 120v, 15 amp or 20 amp outlet?
    All our saunas are 120v and require a regular plug in. Our 1 and 2 person units all require a regular 15 amp outlet and breaker. Our corner models and 3 person and above all require a 20amp outlet and dedicated circuit, meaning the sauna should be the only thing on this circuit. We highly recommend a certified electrician for any questions and concerns for your sauna.
  • 12) Is far infrared heat safe?
    Infrared energy is not only safe, but is also highly beneficial for our bodies. Far Infrared heat has been actively used in the medical field around the world for decades. Physicians, surgeons, pain management clinics, physical therapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, etc., have all used infrared heat to help their patients with a variety of health issues for many years. Infrared Saunas have become mainstream in the health and wellness field and its popularity among health care professionals grows each and every year.

  • 15) Which sauna should I get?
    Is it true that bigger is better? In this case, bigger may be better. If you have the space and budget, get a bigger sauna so you have additional stretch out space. You will be happy with your decision!
  • 14) How thick are your walls, and how are they constructed?
    Our saunas are constructed using Canadian Reforested Hemlock Wood. This wood is kiln dried and contains no pesticides. Our saunas are constructed using staples and a non-toxic glue for a tongue-and-groove style of construction. Because we use double wall (hollow inside) construction on the wall panels, we are able to significantly reduce the heat transfer to the outer walls allowing us to place an oil-based stain or clear coat finish (exterior/outer wall panels only). The wall panels are 6mm in thickness with a 1.25in inner frame. The glass doors and windows are approximately 5/16 inch thick, the best in the industry.
  • 20) Can I put my sauna outdoors?
    Our standard answer is NO. They are really indoor saunas. They can go in any room in the house, on any floor surface, and against any wall. If you decide to put it outside, you must make sure it is under a covered patio and fully protected from water/moisture. All of the electronics are on top of the sauna and must be protected. We do have a referral company that offers custom canvas covers for your sauna for approximately $300 - $600 depending upon which sauna you get. This will protect it from the weather elements which the sauna will still be exposed to when under a covered patio.
  • 25) How do I activate my warranty?
    Within 60 days of receiving your sauna, please complete the warranty card and make a copy of your invoice and mail it in.
  • 24) Are the floor heaters water and sweat proof?
    Yes! Saunas can go on any floor in the house, against any wall, and in any room. We do recommend using towels to reduce the amount of sweat dripping to the floor.
  • 8) Will I sweat in my sauna?
    You will sweat like no other. You will burn 500 – 800 calories in a 30 minute session, and 2lbs – 5lbs of water weight at 60 minutes. Extensive studies have been completed and you can lose significant weight using your sauna 3 + days a week.
  • 3) Where are your saunas manufactured?
    China! 90% of the world’s population of Infrared Saunas are manufactured in Asia, more specifically China. There are many factories in China that produce most of the Infrared Saunas around the world. Our factories are considered the best in the world. There currently are NO manufactures of Infrared Saunas that manufactures their sauna products 100% in the US today!
  • 23) What is Infrared Heat?
    Infrared is the band of light we perceive as heat. We cannot see this band of light with the naked eye, but we can feel this type of light in the form of heat. Think of the Sun’s rays on a brisk Spring day. The actual temperature may be cold, but until the Sun goes behind a cloud - it feels warm. In many ways it feels like being outside and feeling the warm soothing heat of the sun.
  • Why Zero Gravity?
    By removing gravity’s direct downward push on your spine and neck while standing or sitting upright, it allows the muscles to relax and for the neck and spine to properly align. This relieves pain and relaxes muscles, allowing for a more effective massage. The heart is much more efficient in zero gravity which allows for better circulation Knees are above the heart Reduces swelling in the legs Reduces hip and knee pain due to injury or arthritis Great as an aid to compression therapy As the muscles relax, it relieves stress in both the mind and body Helps your mind to relax Focus on wellbeing Reduced tension of unwanted effects of aging Enlarges lung capacity Aids in oxygenation of the blood Benefits of Zero Gravity Reduces pressure and properly aligns the spine Better circulation resulting in more oxygenation throughout your body Doctor recommended position for Pregnancy / Post Surgeries Reduces leg swelling for those suffering from Edema, high blood pressure, and obesity Helps your mind to relax and your sleep to be more sound Increases relief to your back and neck Reduced tension of unwanted effects of aging Relaxes muscles Enlarged lung capacity Improved joint mobility and flexibility
  • What is Zero Gravity
    Zero Gravity was developed at the Skylab, the first American space station, in the early 1980s. They discovered a position that alleviated stress to astronaut's bodies during takeoff to simulate when our bodies are most relaxed and in a weightless position. To be exact, according to NASA’s development of the MSIS (Man-Systems Integration Standards), the angles regarding the spine are 128° (+/-7°) between the torso and thigh, and 133° (+/-8°) between the hamstrings and calf. When we are outside of these general degrees of alignment, the spine and other organs will not be at optimal performance. Feet are elevated so knee positioning is higher than the heart. Zero gravity positioning has been replicated in everyday products like infant car seats, recliners, massage chairs, and mattresses. Even automobiles are replicating aspects of zero gravity in seat development.
