Infrared Sauna room
  • What should I wear?

    We recommend undergarments, loose-fitting gym clothing, a swimsuit, or nothing. Each infrared sauna is in its own, fully private room.

    We provide fresh, dry towels as well as a refreshing chilled towel to enjoy after your session!

    We do not offer shower facilities.

  • How long is each session?

    All sessions are 30 minutes. A sauna can be booked after a massage or as a quick stress reliever all on its own. Ready to book a Mood House infrared sauna session? Book here. Additional questions? Text us at 704-286-0906.

  • Can I book two sessions, back-to-back?

    Yes! Please text us at 704-286-0906 for assistance booking a back-to-back, one hour session.

  • How often should I use the sauna?

    One session will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. But similarly to exercise, the more you do it, the better the results. Our clients love weekly or monthly visits – though some choose to use it as many as 3 to 4 times per week!

  • When will I start sweating?

    Sweat levels differentiate between each individual. Don't be surprised if you don't sweat during the first few sessions. Sweating will increase with regular use. Also, be sure to drink plenty of water before your session. If you are dehydrated, you will not sweat as much.

  • What are the benefits?
    • Deep relaxation, increased circulation and decreased inflammation, to name a few! An infrared sauna heats your body directly, not the air, so it's a gentler, more enjoyable heat than a traditional sauna.
    • Sweat better: It's one of the body’s safest and most natural ways to heal and maintain good health. High-quality infrared promotes effortless, deep, productive sweat.
    • Improve circulation: Infrared sauna therapy acts like a passive cardio workout, which helps your heart by improving circulation and can even help reduce blood pressure.
    • Recover faster: Infrared helps deliver more oxygen to muscle cells for faster repair and pain relief.
    • Renew your skin: Near-infrared LED technology increases collagen and elastin. Far infrared waves increase circulation, helping regenerate cells.
    • Truly relax and de-stress: Step into your peaceful wellness sanctuary and experience therapeutic heat that leaves you feeling physically restored and mentally refreshed.
    • Improve your sleep: The time you spend in your sauna can help you get better rest by creating a routine that supports relaxation and a healthy circadian rhythm you want to enjoy.

  • Do I need a doctor’s note?

    No, if you have health concerns we recommend speaking with your doctor before your sauna session.

  • Is it prenatal safe?

    Even though infrared is completely safe, it is not recommended to use while pregnant. While pregnant, the core body temperature is already elevated and you could overheat.

  • Is it ok to use the sauna while breastfeeding?

    Even though infrared is completely safe, it is not recommended to use while pregnant. While pregnant, the core body temperature is already elevated and you could overheat.

  • Are there age restrictions?

    Yes, all Mood House services are designated for ages 18+.

  • Are there any contraindications for sauna use?

    If any of the below apply to you, consult your physician prior to sauna use:

    • Cardiovascular Issues, Obesity or Diabetes – Individuals suffering from obesity or with a medical history of heart disease, low or high blood pressure, circulatory problems, or diabetes should consult a physician prior to use. Heat stress increases cardiac output and blood flow in an effort to transfer internal body heat to the outside environment via the skin (perspiration) and respiratory system. This takes place primarily due to major changes in the heart rate, which has the potential to increase by thirty (30) beats per minute for each degree increase in core body temperature.
    • Medications – Individuals who are using prescription drugs should seek the advice of their personal physician since some medications may induce drowsiness, while others may affect heart rate, blood pressure and circulation. Diuretics, barbiturates, and beta-blockers may impair the body’s natural heat loss mechanisms. Anticholinergics, such as amitriptyline, may inhibit sweating and can predispose individuals to heat rash or to a lesser extent, heat stroke. Some over-the-counter drugs, such as antihistamines, may also cause the body to be more prone to heat stroke.
    • Alcohol & Drug Abuse – Contrary to popular belief, it is not advisable to attempt to “sweat out” a hangover. Alcohol intoxication decreases a person’s judgment; therefore, he/she may not realize when the body has a negative reaction to high heat. Alcohol also increases the heart rate, which may be further increased by heat stress. The use of alcohol, drugs, or medications prior to a sauna session may lead to unconsciousness.
    • Elderly – The ability to maintain core body temperature decreases with age. This is primarily due to circulatory conditions and decreased sweat gland function. The body must be able to activate its natural cooling processes in order to maintain core body temperature. If elderly, operate at a lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time.
    • Chronic Conditions / Diseases Associated with Reduced Ability to Sweat or Perspire – Multiple Sclerosis, Central Nervous System Tumors, and Diabetes with Neuropathy are conditions that are associated with impaired sweating. Consult a physician.
    • Hemophiliacs / Individuals Prone to Bleeding – The use of infrared saunas should be avoided by anyone who is predisposed to bleeding.
    • Fever & Insensitivity to Heat – Individuals with insensitivity to heat or who have a fever should not use the sauna until the fever subsides.
    • Menstruation – Heating of the low back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily increase menstrual flow. This should not preclude sauna use.
    • Joint Injury – Recent (acute) joint injury should not be heated for the first 48 hours or until the swollen symptoms subside. Joints that are chronically hot and swollen may respond poorly to vigorous heating of any kind.
    • Implants – Metal pins, rods, artificial joints, or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared waves and thus are not heated by this system. Nevertheless, you should consult your physician prior to using.  
    • Pacemakers / Defibrillators – The magnets used to assemble our saunas can interrupt the pacing and inhibit the output of pacemakers. Please discuss with your doctor the possible risks this may cause.
