The Sauna at our Finger Lakes Spa For even more luxury beyond our traditional spa services, now you can enjoy relaxing in our far infrared (FIR) sauna at our Finger Lakes Spa. A FIR sauna uses carbon fiber heaters that emit infrared light that the body absorbs the same way it soaks up sunlight – through the skin’s surface – thereby allowing deeper tissue penetration.Infrared energy heats the body from the inside out, raising the core temperature and inducing sweat production, at an air temperature significantly cooler than that of traditional saunas. In the end, the body receives all the healthy benefits of the sauna without the discomfort and harmful effects brought on by extreme heat.Benefits of FIR sauna treatment:Flush out toxins in the bodyLower blood pressure and relax musclesReduce joint pain and stiffness associated with some diseasesStave off an oncoming cold or shorten its durationImprove skin tone and minimize signs of agingAid in weight lossBest of all – enjoy these benefits in a more soothing and comfortable environment!At our Finger Lakes Spa, we limit use of sauna to two people per session, which allows guests to stretch out and enjoy the relaxing experience they deserve.Guests at our Finger Lakes Spa will also appreciate the sauna’s ambiance-enhancing features, to include mood light therapy and the integrated sound system. Mood light therapy will help set the tone for the session.
