The sauna is a dry sauna, consistent with Canadian regulations. Dry saunas use infrared energy which allows the sauna to create heat and generate sweat while working at cooler temperatures than traditional saunas. Our sauna reaches temperatures of 110ºF - 190ºF. The lower heat used in dry saunas is especially beneficial to older users and those with high blood pressure and/or heat problems. Dry heat saunas provide soothing heat with no moisture and the lower temperature means a safer sauna experience.
