  • What should I do if I get too hot?
    If you get too hot or too uncomfortable and need to cool down a bit: 1- open the vent above 2- open the sauna door. When the door opens the full spectrum heaters will stay on and you will still get the infrared benefits. 3- If you are still too hot, step out and sit on the bench. Drink water. 4- End your session early if needed. Always listen to your body! Be sure to stay hydrated, Drink plenty of water before, during, and after each session. The timer will be set between 30 - 40 minutes. You can end the session at any time if needed. You can also step out to take breaks and drink water as needed. If you have never used an infrared sauna before, we recommend building your sessions up slowly and listening to your body. You can start with a 20-25 minute session and build up a couple of minutes each appointment until you get to a 30 – 40 minute session. 40 minutes is the recommended maximum time for our professional-grade Full-spectrum infrared saunas. You will get the maximum benefits within this time. Never turn the temperature gauge down, if you get too hot open the door and allow the cooler air to enter, this way the heaters remain on, and you are still getting the benefits of the infrared wavelengths. If you turn the sauna temperature down, the heaters will turn off once they reach that temp and you are no longer benefiting from the infrared wavelengths. End your session early, if needed. Listen to your body! Infrared therapy is low-temperature therapy and unlike traditional saunas that heat the air around you to make you sweat, infrared therapy is about the quality of the heaters and their ability to interact with your body on a cellular level and heat you from your core, from the inside out. Because of this, the sauna only has to be between 115 to 145 degrees to reach maximum benefits. This makes for a more comfortable relaxing session.
  • What is Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna and what are the benefits?
    Infrared is electromagnetic radiation in the spectral band between radio waves and visible light. It is invisible to the human eye. Our Saunas are Full-spectrum infrared therapy cabins. The black panels you see inside the sauna are True Wave® far infrared heaters. The silver front heaters are True Wave full spectrum heaters offering near, mid, and far infrared. Rather than using steam or the traditional heating elements, the infrared sauna heaters use the infrared spectrum listed below to promote relaxation and other wellness benefits. In an infrared sauna, the air temperature is less important than the quality of the infrared heat. You will warm up with the sauna. As your body absorbs the infrared heat, this will increase thermal energy inducing a deep and relaxing sweat. Using your infrared sauna at lower temperatures means you can stay in longer and get more benefits. Three Wavelengths of the Infrared spectrum •Near Infrared wavelengths- Shortest wavelength but penetrates the deepest. They are also associated with photo biomodulation which directly produces energy within the cells. •Mid-Infrared wavelengths- Temporarily increase circulation through vasodilation. Elevating heart rate and overall metabolism. •Far-Infrared wavelengths- Penetrate to the cellular level to resonate (shake) the cells and release toxins. They also temporarily enhance energy. Benefits of the Infrared Sauna Detoxification Improved circulation Temporary muscle and joint pain relief Improved sleep Weight loss & Increased Metabolism Reduce the appearance of cellulite Ease joint pain and stiffness Stress and fatigue reduction Improves skin

Your body will be able to detox more effectively because it will not be using that energy for digestion.
  • Why didn't I sweat my first time in the Infrared sauna?
    When warmed to the optimal temperature, people usually start sweating after spending 15-20 minutes in a sauna. But if you did not sweat during your first session, don't worry; this is normal for some people. It should become more productive with each session. Sweating may also vary, with some sessions resulting in more sweat than others. There are a few different factors that may cause this, one of which is dehydration. If your body lacks hydration and electrolytes, it becomes difficult for the body to produce a substantial amount of sweat. Dry skin may be another cause of not sweating. It is impossible to sweat with skin pores closed, as is the case with dry skin. Dry brushing before showering will assist with this, and you should also remember to moisturize regularly after sauna use. You should also avoid using moisturizers, lotions, or any cosmetics before entering the sauna. You want as much of your skin to be exposed to the infrared light and heat as possible.
  • How does Infrared sauna compare to traditional saunas?
    Infrared therapy is low-temperature therapy and unlike traditional saunas that heat the air around you to make you sweat, infrared therapy is about the quality of the heaters and their ability to interact with your body on a cellular level and heat you from your core, from the inside out. Traditional saunas raise the temperature of the air to a very high level within the chamber to warm the body. Some people have difficulty breathing in this extremely warm air. Instead of heating the air within the enclosure, infrared saunas heat the body directly. The result is deeper tissue penetration. In an infrared sauna, the body perspires and receives all of the healthy benefits but avoids the harmful and extremely hot and humid air of a traditional steam sauna. This makes for a more comfortable and relaxing session. **The temperature inside an infrared sauna averages a comfortable 100°F to 145 °F. These lower temperatures allow you to sweat faster and to tolerate a longer sauna session offering greater therapeutic benefit. Typical sessions last 30 to 40 minutes. Infrared saunas leave you feeling invigorated, not depleted like conventional saunas.
  • How long is my sauna session?
    If you are new to infrared sauna or it has been a while since your last sweat session you should start with a 30-minute session and increase over time to a maximum of a 40-minute session. The room is booked for 60 min intervals to allow for undressing/dressing and cleaning between guests. If you are scheduled for the Sauna and RL combo your RL/NIR light treatment will be 10 minutes and your sauna session will be 30 - 40 minutes. Your suite is booked for 60 minutes.

  • Is infrared heat safe?
    Infrared heat is completely safe and all objects give off and receive infrared heat. In fact, it is so safe, hospitals use similar heaters to warm newborns. Infrared is a part of nature and essential for life. The human body gives off and receives infrared in the far infrared band. When a mother rubs a baby's stomach to relieve pain, it is the infrared heat from her hand that causes the healing effect. The True Wave™ heaters give off far infrared in this same range for maximum absorption by your body and maximum therapeutic benefits.
  • How does Red Light Therapy work?
    When delivered within the optimal wavelengths and energy levels, red and near infrared light protect your body’s cells from nitric oxide damage, which can otherwise stop the cell’s production of ATP when you’re stressed or ill. Red light photons allow your cells to continue utilizing oxygen effectively by minimizing the absorption of nitric oxide. Only red light therapy can reach all the way into a cell’s mitochondria to stimulate healing and regeneration to help improve your appearance, performance, and overall well-being.
  • Is RL/NIR light Therapy safe? Can it hurt my eyes?
    Red light is non-invasive, effective, and safe. Red light therapy harnesses the healing powers of red and near-infrared light. This natural treatment shows promise in treating signs of aging, acne, scars, wounds, and much more. Several clinical studies demonstrate the safety findings of red light therapy. Although there is still much to be learned, studies on red light therapy continue to indicate an absence of adverse effects while helping users enjoy varied benefits. Eye protection is not necessary, but we recommend wearing eye protection and not looking directly into the LEDs as it can be uncomfortable. For this reason, we supply eye protection for your comfort. You can also wear your own. All light panels have Zero EMF emissions at the minimum usage distance of four to six inches. Zero! ****FDA CLASS II MEDICAL DEVICE
  • What about EMF? Does the Red light light emit EMF?
    There is no readable EMF at 4” or further from our units
  • What quality of Light Therapy am I getting with the Red/NIR Light Therapy?
    The Red light Panels used at Revive have multi-wave R+|NIR+ spectral output, harnessing six different red and near-infrared wavelengths of light for next-level therapy. STRENGTH The highest amount of output of any other red/NIR LED therapy light, period.

SPECTRUM The exclusive patent-pending R+|NIR+ multi-wave spectral output delivers the most advanced red light therapy available, harnessing six different red and near-infrared wavelengths of light for truly next-level therapy.
  • Is there any medical contraindications for Red light Therapy?
    Sensitivity to light Epilepsy Using photo-sensitizing drugs or having migraines brought on by light while using the Red LED light it is your responsibility to wear the eye protection we provide (or you can bring your own.) The lights are not harmful to the eyes, but what can be harmful is the intensity of the light and you will not look directly into the panels due to this intensity. Additionally, while known contraindications are listed, it is highly advised to consult with a medical professional to ensure that there are no other contraindications specific to your health circumstances that may not be included in this list.
  • What spectrum are the Red light panels?
    The light panels at Revive Sauna suites feature a patent pending R+ | NIR+ spectrum. This merges six different wavelengths of red and near-infrared light: 630nm, 660nm, 810nm, 830nm, and 850nm plus a trace amount of 480nm in the blue region. The array of LEDs emits an output of 630 and 660nm wavelengths, while the NIR+ array emits 810nm, 830nm, and 850nm, all in the same panel. Overexposure or underexposure to some wavelengths is, at the very least, ineffective. The light panels have a wavelength intensity that reflects the spectrum of skin absorption coefficients for optimal dosage. Both R+ and NIR+ spectrum arrays are used in conjunction with one another to deliver unmatched therapeutic value. The result is a superior LED therapy light that powerfully penetrates through skin, muscle, and connective tissue, promoting healing and cellular regeneration to and through the bone.
  • Your Light Therapy has Blue lights. What do they do?
    Blue light therapy uses specific wavelengths of light, ranging from 400 to 500 nanometers on the electromagnetic scale. This treats a variety of skin conditions with a light therapy device that emits what we perceive as the color blue. Certain cells in the body are highly sensitive to blue light. These include some strains of bacteria, including acne-causing bacteria and cancer cells. Blue light wavelengths are very short, so they don't absorb very far into the skin and for this reason are very useful for treating acne, inflammation, and a variety of skin conditions. It also has a number of synergistic benefits when used with red light therapy.
