Experience the immediate benefits of an infrared sauna session. Tonic Wellness Boutique is conveniently located just blocks from the Beverly Center and The Grove in central Los Angeles.
Far infrared sauna therapy uses the wavelength of the visible and non-visible light spectrum of sunlight to heat the body normally.
Far infrared waves penetrate deep into our body for a deep heating action which allows the body to activate the sweat glands. The sweat glands offer one of only few mechanisms that the body has to eliminate toxins, and since the skin is the largest organ in the human body it is apparently a very good means for elimination.
When far infrared waves are applied to water molecules (comprising 70% of our body) these molecules begin to vibrate. This vibration reduces the ion bonds and the eventual breakdown of the water molecules causes encapsulated gases and other toxic materials to be released. (View an expanded list of benefits below).

Benefits Of Infrared Sauna
One of the BIGGEST infrared sauna health benefits is it's ability to increase your blood circulation and stimulate the sweat gland, releasing built-up toxins in the body. Sauna sweating can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of accumulated, highly toxic metals such as lead, mercury, nickel, and cadmium, as well as alcohol, nicotine, sulphuric acid, and other organic and inorganic compounds.
According to the journal of American Medical Association, regular use of sauna imparts a similar boost on the cardiovascular system to running. As you relax in the gentle infrared heat, your body is hard at work producing sweat, pumping blood, and burning calories. As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart works harder to pump blood at a greater rate to improve circulation. This increase in your metabolism will burn calories. In addition, studies have shown that an infrared sauna session can burn up to 600 calories while you relax. Moreover, your basal metabolic rate is expected to elevate, an indication that you should burn calories at a heightened rate for hours right after your session has ended.
Increased blood circulation has also been shown to aid in the recovery of acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, open wounds, reducing scars.
Cellulite is not always reduced by weight loss. Sauna use and far infrared heat can increase heart rate and localize blood circulation which essentially reverses the fat cells to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Infrared heat penetrates tissue, joints, and muscles, to relieve pain stemming from overuse, strain, or repetitive motion. if you suffer from muscle aches or joint pain, infrared sauna can relieve this form of inflammation by increasing circulation and relaxing your muscles Time spent in an infrared sauna reduces or eliminates stiffness, aches and soreness that comes with aging.
Infrared stimulates collagen production to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin tone plus boosts the delivery of nutrients to your skin through an elevated blood flow resulting in clearer, softer, and healthier looking skin.
In just a few minutes the gentle warmth of an infrared Sauna will help you feel relaxed, rejuvenated, and renewed which balances your body's level of cortisol, your body's primary stress hormone.
Sauna also increases serotonin, a powerful hormone associated with relaxation and sleep. Following a sauna session, people show more brain waves related to deeper, more restful sleep.
Chromotherapy (aka Light Therapy)
Chromotherapy is the science of using colors to adjust body vibrations to frequencies that result in health and harmony. Each color possesses frequencies of a specific vibration, and each vibration is related to different physical symptoms. Each of our saunas come equipped with this option — it is standard, no extra cost.
