Embrace Your Beauty

You know that feeling of being fully warmed by the glow of the sun on the first nice day after a long winter? When the birds are singing, and you're just outside without a ton of clothes on, and you can feel the sun on your bare skin, and it's basically the best day of the last 6 months of your life? Did you know you can get that feeling anytime, any day? It's at Genesis Medspa, and it's called an infrared sauna.

Infrared saunas are a hugely untapped fountain of health and happiness – they feel seriously amazing and are even better for our health. By using different types of infrared light, they heat our bodies from the inside out by heating our core first. Don't be alarmed if you don't sweat for the first or even multiple sessions – the more active you are and the more often your core is heated, the more quickly this happens, so you'll be more likely to get a good sweat.

Most infrared saunas that you run across only have one type of light, most commonly the far light. At Genesis we have Sunlighten Infrared Saunas, which have all three types of light. This is important because they each do different things for our body:

Near: stays on the outside of our body, assisting in the healing of wounds, scars and skin conditions.

Mid: goes a little deeper, into our muscles and joints, so it works well for pain relief and relaxation.

Far: penetrates the deepest parts of our body, including into our organs, so it releases those deep toxins and helps with weight loss.

There are preprogrammed sessions such as relaxation and detox, and we can also create custom sessions.

We could literally use an infrared sauna 7 days a week (staying properly hydrated, of course) and that would be GOOD for us. Sadly, Genesis is only open 6 days a week. We have two saunas, however, that you can schedule Monday through Saturday. Pricing is by the sauna, so you can even bring a friend or significant other along to join you in your session.

Through September, if you have never tried our infrared sauna, it is only $5! So grab some water, come relax, and feel like the first day of spring!
