Hotbox Infrared Sauna Studio 835 S. Hill Street Los Angeles, CA 90014
Some like it hot! Developed in the 1970’s by Japanese health practitioners, Infrared saunas offer the same health benefits as the traditional Finnish variety, but provide a cooler, more gentle and soothing experience. Unlike Finnish convection saunas, which heat the body from the outside-in, infrared saunas heat the body from the inside-out, leaving the air more breathable and allowing for a longer sweat. According to the Mayo Clinic, no adverse effects have been reported with infrared saunas, and the lower temperature can make them accessible to people who can’t tolerate the heat of a conventional sauna. Infrared heat can also kill bacteria, creating a more sterile environment. During any Hotbox session, you can add Chromotherapy, the healing power of color. Choose a color based on your mood, such as Calm, Balance, Clarity, Inspired, and Optimism, and your private sauna will be filled with the electromagnetic flow of colored light.
