Life’s hectic pace can cause fatigue, stress, and
pain in your body. Our saunas use infrared light to
raise your internal body temperature, trigger sweating,
and alleviate your body of toxins, chemicals, and fat.
Infrared saunas are 7 to 10 times more effective than traditional saunas by producing sweat composed of 20% toxins versus only 3% produced by a traditional sauna during the detoxifying process.
The quicker metabolic rate causes extra toxic waste products to be purged from the body through the skin, during perspiration. The skin is often referred to as the 3rd kidney, because it is believed to be responsible for eliminating 30% of the body’s waste.
Far Infrared Sauna assists in purging heavy metals, pesticides, cholesterol, nicotine,alcohol and other morbid residues. Sweating is a much safer way to release fat-soluble toxins, as they can damage the kidneys if excreted via the urine.
We are all exposed to hundreds of chemicals a day in the air we breathe, the items we touch, what we apply to our skin, and what we eat and drink. Not all of these chemicals can be processed adequately by the body, nor can an excessive of them be handled at one time. Some are even poisonous or damaging to critical parts of the very detox systems (such as liver enzymes) that are supposed to detoxify them.
By incorporating an infrared sauna session into your weekly routine you can help your body rid itself of these devastating toxins, all while deeply relaxing for 30 minutes.
Infrared sauna is excellent for anyone who wants to detox, improve immune function,relieve chronic fatigue, muscle and joint pains, skin issues, brain fog, chemical sensitivities, and reduce stress.

Infrared light is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum that our bodies use to heal and repair. They are the healthiest rays, with the ability to penetrate into the skin deeply as they dissolve harmful substances accumulated in your body and provide lasting relaxation. Far infrared heat provides all the healthy benefits of natural sunlight without any of the dangerous effects of solar radiation.
Far-infrared waves penetrate 1.5 inches or more into our body, raising the core body temperature and producing a deep and detoxifying sweat at a cellular level. The sweat glands offer one of only a few mechanisms that the body has to eliminate toxins and since the skin is the largest organ in the human body, it is very good means for elimination.
When far infrared waves are applied to water molecules (comprising 70% of our body) these molecules begin to vibrate. This vibration reduces the ion bonds and the eventual breakdown of the water molecules causes encapsulated gases and other toxic materials to be released.
Infrared heat is gentle on the body. It feels similar to lying outside on a warm day, but shaded from the harsh ultraviolet rays. Unlike traditional saunas, which often operate around 200 degrees Fahrenheit or more, infrared stays a more comfortable temperature of 120-140 degrees. Traditional saunas heat the air instead of the body directly, which can make them unbearably hot and breathing difficult. Because infrared penetrates human tissue instead of heating the skin’s surface, they are seven times more effective at detoxifying the body. The sweat produced by a traditional sauna might have only 3% toxins, while infrared can produce sweat comprised of up to 20% toxins.
The benefits of infrared sauna are almost endless. Some of these include:
Yes, your sauna is located in a private suite where you can relax uninterrupted.
Before any sauna session make sure you are well hydrated for maximum benefit and detoxification. An hour before your sauna try and drink at least 500mls of clean water.
We recommend 30 minutes for each sauna session.
The less the better, to allow maximum skin exposure for the release of sweat. This could be a bathing suit, shorts and a tank, etc. We also provide a towel for each guest to use in the sauna if they wish.
Our facilities at The Float Space West End offer a shower while those at The Float Space Maroochydore do not. If you are booked in for a float session after your sauna, you are able to shower in your float suite. If you aren’t floating after, we provide a towel to wipe down with after your session.
At least once a week is ideal, but you can sauna as often as you like! It is a great
complement to your exercise routine, and also perfect for a rest or recovery day.
While one session will leave you feeling refreshed and cleansed, maximum results are obtained with repeated treatments.
If suffering from chronic illness sick or have high toxicity one session daily for at least 10 days is recommended. Subsequently, one to three sessions per week are beneficial to make a difference. Find what works best for you and your body’s needs.
We take appointments online and also by phone and in person.
We encourage using your time in the sauna as a moment to relax and meditate, and allow the infrared heat to melt away any stress or fatigue you may be experiencing. If this is not appealing to you, then the options are endless! You can bring a book, magazine, or even your phone or tablet into the sauna to pass the time. If you are feeling more active, you may choose to do stretching or yoga.
Absolutely! Our saunas accommodate 2-3 people, and we charge individually. Please note that our online system cannot make reservations for more than one person in a sauna, so please call us to schedule this type of appointment.

Booking in an infrared sauna before your Float is fantastic to double the detox and relaxation effects. An infrared sauna prior to your float is also effective in opening the pores of the skin, allowing you to absorb more magnesium while you float, significantly enhancing detoxification, improve sleep, pain relief and more.
