SWEAT Session

The blanket uses infrared technology, which produces a type of energy that penetrates deep into the body, raising the core temperature and inducing a sweat response. This process can help to detoxify the body by eliminating toxins and impurities through the sweat glands. In addition to its detoxifying benefits, the infrared sauna blanket has been shown to provide relief for a range of health conditions, such as chronic pain, arthritis, and fibromyalgia. The blanket can also promote relaxation, reduce stress and anxiety, and improve circulation.

For your comfort and hygiene, we will provide you with a clean sweatsuit, complete with a long sleeve shirt, sweatpants, and socks to sweat in. As you lay comfortably in the sauna bed, you will have the option to enhance your relaxation by watching Netflix or listening to music. The FAR infrared technology used in the sauna blanket is designed to generate heat deep within the body, promoting detoxification and a range of health benefits. Enjoy a revitalizing and invigorating experience in our state-of-the-art sauna blanket.

SWEAT benefits include: weight loss, brighter skin, deeper sleep, increased energy, boost endorphins, alleviate migraines, soothe muscle soreness, strengthened immunity, mood improvement, stress relief, hormone balance, muscle tension relief, detoxification, increased metabolism, and increased relaxation

An Infrared Sauna SWEAT Session at The Body Bar Benefits

  • Oxygen and nutrient-rich blood move closer to the surface when we sweat, which helps aid in the enhancement of immune factors, nutrients and other compounds needed for our bodies to function optimally.  

  • Exposure to FAR infrared warms and relaxes muscle fibers, to substantially reduce tension within both fast- and slow-twitch muscle fibers. This increase of sweating helps promote more normalized tissue repair and improved sleep pattern. 

  •  FAR infrared-induced sweating also safely flushes toxins and heavy metals from fatty tissues! This creates an enhanced fat loss and improved nutrient uptake by our wonderful bodies. 

  •  The increased sweating that happens during this 45-minute session helps promotes more efficient blood flow and lymphatic system function. The metabolic process is boosted and improves the rate at which tissues are repaired and replenished. The increase of tissue repair helps with muscle recovery and soreness from working out!

  • Although our bodies do an excellent job at expelling out toxins by itself, sometimes, our body may be slow to release the proper amount of toxins, heavy metals and food-based pathogens. When this happens, these compounds are stored in fat cells throughout the body. This can compromise our energy levels, sleep habits, immune system response and more. When our body temperature rises in the FAR infrared blankets, our bodies begin to flush them out faster. Our bodies also work very hard to maintain the constant temperature rise, an immense amount of energy is produced, which can have a direct impact on metabolism and body fat utilization.

  •   Endorphins and hormones attach directly to opiate receptors, which get released during a SWEAT session. End results? A healthy mood and natural pain relief.


What is a sauna sweat session?

We use FAR infrared sweat technology to provide a deep, penetrating heat that warms the body from the inside out, resulting in a profoundly cleansing sweat (all while reclining in a comfy bed and watching your favorite shows!)


Why should I sweat?

 There are numerous benefits to sweating regularly. Sweating is a natural form of detoxification that helps the body to free itself from contaminants, resulting in weight loss, brighter skin, deeper sleep, and increased energy. Sweating also helps boost endorphins, alleviate migraines, and soothe muscle soreness. Strengthened immunity, mood improvement, stress relief, hormone balance, muscle tension relief, detoxification, increased metabolism, and increased relaxation are also some awesome benefits.

Basically, sweating releases the bad stuff, so you can focus on the good stuff.


Who should not sweat?

 If you have a chronic condition that makes you extremely sensitive to temperature, we recommend checking with your doctor before booking a sweat session. The same advice applies to those who have recently sustained an injury and/or undergone a surgery. If you have hemophilia or take certain medications (including some blood thinners), we typically recommend against sweating. Pregnant women cannot sweat (although we would be thrilled to have you sweat after your baby is born!). If you have been advised to stay away from heat or have any concerns or questions regarding medical conditions and sweating or lymphatic therapy, please talk to your doctor, and also feel free to reach out to us!


How often should I sweat?

 The short answer is: as much as you want. Although, you can’t sweat more than once a day. One or two times weekly, a few times each month, or whenever you can fit a sweat into your schedule is good! The key is to trust your body, and go with what feels best for you. Any sweat is better than no sweat. 


Do I really need to drink a lot of water?

Yup! Basically because we want you to feel awesome. Your body, just like every other living thing on earth, needs plenty of water to function optimally, so you’ll always feel your best when you are hydrated. When you sweat, your body uses water to flush out toxins and other waste materials, and the more water you have to use, the more productive your sweat will be. It’s also important to replenish the water that you sweat out, so that you walk away feeling vibrant, refreshed, and hydrated. 



How long is an appointment?

 Sweat sessions are 55 minutes long. Treatments are 55 minutes because that’s the ideal amount of time for the body to sweat.


Why is sweating so good for detox?

Sweating is one of the best ways for your body to naturally eliminate toxins, chemicals, heavy metals, fat, and other waste. When you sweat using FAR infrared energy, you encourage your system to detox deeply and efficiently by increasing core temperature, which encourages toxic subcutaneous deposits to loosen and release through the skin. So, while sweating is always great for detox, sweating using FAR infrared technology takes your body’s normal processes to the next level.


What’s the science?

 FAR infrared is a form of natural light just beyond the visible spectrum, meaning that although you cannot see it, you can feel it in the form of radiant heat. Not to be confused with ultraviolet (UV) light, infrared energy is a safe, healthy therapy for all living things. Our infrared beds gradually increase core body temperature by producing waves that reach beyond surface skin to subcutaneous fat and muscle. As your body temperature rises, your system begins to sweat in order to thermo-regulate itself, which allows for the release of toxins, heavy metals, and fat, while stimulating endorphin production and heart rate.


Are there risks?

 There are no major risks associated with sweating for individuals of average health. If you can walk up a flight of stairs, walk your dog, or do any other activity that might result in heightened pulse and increased body heat, you can probably sweat safely and comfortably. However, if you are at all worried, please consult your doctor before booking a sweat.


What do I wear?

A clean sweat suit will be provided for each guest to wear including: a long sleeve shirt, sweat pants, and a pair of socks. Sizes are available form S-2XL.



What do I do the whole time?

Well, relax. And sweat. You will be reclined in a comfortable position for 55 minutes in a dark lit room. Netflix is available for guests to watch, a guided meditation, or just some relaxing music (or not). A call button will be in reach in case you need any assistance at any point during your treatment.
