Infrared heat is the invisible part of the suns spectrum, it’s the warmth we feel from sunlight, two thirds of our cellular energy is made when your out in the sunlight that contains infrared light. Infrared light has a range of wavelengths – far infrared, mid infrared and near infrared which is the basis of our saunas, by having an infrared sauna it will produce the same infrared energy that comes from the sun without the concern of burning and harmful rays.
Infrared saunas deliver natural heat directly to the body, it has the ability to penetrate human tissue to produce a range of health benefits. We’re pleased to provide two cutting-edge infrared saunas at our Geelong wellness studio, both models are patented Solocarbon® Full Spectrum – Advanced blend of near, mid and far infrared heat delivering high-quality mind and body benefits.

The unique 3-in-1® heating system provides:
Near infrared (NIR) is the shortest infrared wavelength than the other two and penetrates the skin’s surface more effectively. It’s the most effective wavelength for healing the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin, it stimulates collagen production reducing wrinkles and improving overall skin tone.
Near infrared stimulates the circulatory system and more fully oxygenate the body’s cells. Better blood circulation means more toxins flow from cellular level to the skin’s surface. With the natural preventative properties of the LED near infrared heating technology, which strengthens the body’s immune system defenses.
Scientific research shows that near infrared therapy (also known as Red Light Therapy) greatly enhances the skin’s healing process by promoting faster cell regeneration and human tissue growth to repair wounds faster, reducing scarring and preventing infections.
Near infrared promotes cell health, complexion, wound healing, skin purification and tissue growth.
Mid infrared (MIR) is a longer wavelength that can penetrate deeper into the body’s soft tissue where inflammation occurs and speeds up the healing process.
Infrared heat works by penetrating deep into joints, muscles and tissues. Mid infrared helps expand blood vessels and increases circulation transporting oxygen throughout the body which produces more energy.
Regular use of infrared saunas has many effective therapeutic benefits with those suffering from sports injuries, muscle soreness, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis and other chronic pain conditions.
Pain management professionals are incorporating infrared heat therapy into treatment plans to decrease pain and muscle spasms and to speed up recovery time.
Mid infrared promotes weight-loss, inflammation, pain relief, increases circulation, speeds oxygen and increases energy.
Far infrared (FIR) is the longest of the wavelengths that reaches deep into the body’s tissues, where toxins are stored.
By raising your core body temperature far infrared stimulates the sweat glands, resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
Sweating is the body’s most safe and natural way to heal your body and stay healthy, it also increases the heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate. Sweating makes the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and helps circulation.
Scientific evidence has shown that using an infrared sauna a couple times a week can lower blood pressure, our Solocarbon® heaters have been clinically proven to reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
Far infrared promotes detoxification, blood pressure, cholesterol reduction and relaxation.
Our full spectrum infrared saunas feature chromothepy lighting options for our clients to enjoy. Colour and light have been used for healing for thousands of years to balance the energy in the body wherever it is lacking from a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level.
It’s the science of using colours to adjust body vibrations to frequencies that result in health and harmony. We all need the sun’s light which is broken down into 7 colours of the spectrum to live, these colours being red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. If there is an imbalance in these colours within our bodies, it can manifest itself in mental or physical distress. Each colour posses frequencies of a specific vibration, and each vibration is related to different physical symptoms. Chromotherapy works on various energy points to help your body re-establish its natural balance. It accomplishes this via the full spectrum of visible light with each colour of which addresses a separate bodily need.
With seating for one to three people, enjoy your infrared sauna session alone or bring a friend along. For clients under the age of 18, a parent or guardian is required to sign a consent form prior to the initial appointment.
Tips to get the most out of your infrared sauna session
Infrared saunas use gentle, natural infrared heat to raise your core body temperature by three degrees in a relaxing and comfortable environment. Our range of infrared saunas use patented Solocarbon® technology to penetrate body tissue and stimulates detoxification via sweating and boosts overall health and well-being.
Enjoy the feeling of lying under the sun on a warm day, while your body rids itself of toxins, reduces blood pressure and even burns calories.
Our wellness studio staff recommend taking the following steps to make the most of your infrared sauna sessions:
- Have a pre-sauna shower to cleanse your skin and stimulate the sweating process
- Avoid using chemicals or lotions before your sauna, as these can block pores and prevent effective perspiration
- Drink plenty of liquids prior to your sauna, as this helps flush toxins from the body
- Eat a meal before your sauna, preferably something with high-water-content
- Your body will continue to sweat post sauna so have a cool shower 30 minutes after to balance your body temperature, remove toxins and close pores
- Rest and eat after your sauna to allow the body to recover and replace lost nutrients and electrolytes
- Take advantage of our post-sauna complimentary tea and coffee.
For best results, it is recommended to have 2 -3 per week. Confidere & Co offers 45-minute sauna sessions as well as multi-session infrared sauna passes and combination of sauna and hyperbaric therapy passes.
