  • 360-degree Far Infrared Heater Panels are ZERO Rated EMF Nano-Carbon™ –which is a fancy way of saying that the electro-magnetic field registers very low from the heaters at a close range–which is a good thing. 
  • The walls are herbally- cured heart of cedar which make them non-toxic and non-outgassing.
  • Clients who understand light/vibrational therapy (which has a fascinating history) can opt to utilize the High Volume Chromotherapy Lights (7 colors).
  • An Oxygen Ionizer is utilized to assist in removing allergans and microbes from the sauna between sessions.
