As winter settles in, our bodies crave warmth and comfort. At Soak Bathhouse, we believe there’s no better place to spend the cool winter days – and if not for our hot mineral spas and warm magnesium pools then for our steam rooms and saunas! One of our favorite winter wellness practices is the infrared sauna and at Soak Bathhouse you can book an infrared sauna session for yourself or as a couple.

Let’s dive into the benefits of an infrared sauna session during the colder months and why it’s a perfect addition to your winter routine.



What is an Infrared Sauna?

Unlike traditional saunas that heat the air around you, an infrared sauna uses infrared lamps to warm your body directly. This method penetrates deeper into the skin, promoting a range of health benefits without the intense heat of conventional saunas.


Deep Detoxification

Winter is a time when we often indulge in hearty foods and spend more time indoors, which can lead to toxin buildup in our bodies. Infrared saunas help to detoxify the body by inducing a deep sweat that eliminates toxins through the skin. The increased circulation during a sauna session also helps to flush out impurities, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.


Immune System Boost

The cold season is notorious for colds and flu. Regular use of an infrared sauna can help boost your immune system. The heat from the sauna raises your core body temperature, mimicking a fever, which is the body’s natural defense mechanism. This process enhances the production of white blood cells, improving your immune response and helping you stay healthy throughout winter.


Pain Relief and Muscle Relaxation

Cold weather can exacerbate joint pain and stiffness. Infrared saunas provide relief by penetrating deep into muscles and joints, easing aches and pains. The gentle heat increases blood flow, reduces inflammation, and promotes relaxation. Whether you’re dealing with chronic pain or post-workout soreness, a session in the infrared sauna can leave you feeling more comfortable and limber.


Stress Reduction and Mental Clarity

Winter can sometimes bring about feelings of lethargy and low mood. The calming warmth of an infrared sauna helps to reduce stress by relaxing the mind and body. The increase in circulation and the release of endorphins during a sauna session can elevate your mood and improve mental clarity. Regular use can help combat the winter blues, leaving you feeling more balanced and energized.


Skin Health

The dry winter air can take a toll on your skin, leaving it feeling dry and flaky. Infrared saunas promote better skin health by increasing circulation and stimulating collagen production. The deep sweating opens up your pores, helping to cleanse your skin from the inside out. This can lead to a clearer complexion and a healthy glow, even in the harshest winter conditions.
