Infrared Sauna – How Does it Work?

How it Works


The Colour Me Bronze infrared sauna in Willoughby combines the beneficial infrared rays and himalayan pink salt walls with the therapeutic beauty of visible light through colour light therapy.  By eliminating the sun’s troublesome, harmful UV rays we provide a safe, restorative sweat session that will leave you rejuvenated.

Far infrared waves penetrate the skin, muscles, joints and tissues to increase circulation, speed oxygen flow, and help rid the body of harmful toxins.  Using our infrared sauna helps to remove impurities from your cells.  Specifically the cells inside our fat where our body stores waste and harmful toxins such as cholesterol and heavy metals.

Himalayan pink salt walls have been added to our sauna for a better all round experience.  When heated the Himalayan pink salt in the air undergoes an ionization process which naturally purifies the oxygen.  Spending time in this salt therapy environment (also known as halotherapy) reduces stress, eases skin irritations and boosts energy.

Our sauna has a colour therapy feature. Colour therapy uses the energy of colour to assist the body with its own natural ability to heal, energise and soothe.  Each colour affects different energy and emotions in the body.

The following colour chart explains the health benefits associated with each colour.

Colour Light Therapy

Aromatherapy has long been used by many civilisations and is still being enjoyed today.  Ancient Egyptians, Chinese and Greek cultures used this practice of using aromatic plant extracts and essential oils for various purposes.

Spending time in an infrared sauna is relaxing on its own, but you can enhance the experience even further by incorporating essential oils.

We have 8 essential oils on offer to use during your session.  You can select your essential oil when booking online.
