Infrared Therapy in Scottsdale

Infrared Therapy

Am I a Candidate?

Welcome to Health Cellutions

Rejuvenating Heat Therapy

An infrared sauna uses light to create the sauna’s warming effect—specifically in the infrared spectrum. This light penetrates clothing to heat your body directly, rather than heating the air around you first like in traditional saunas.

Why Try Infrared Therapy in Scottsdale?



Infrared doesn’t burn skin, and it’s so safe that it’s used to warm newborns in hospitals!



Infrared therapy addresses a multitude of conditions and concerns, making it a versatile treatment.



There are many psychological benefits to infrared therapy, like reduced stress and anxiety.


What to Expect

The Infrared Therapy Process



When you come to Health Cellutions for infrared therapy in Scottsdale, your provider will first consult with you about your treatment goals. If infrared sauna therapy seems appropriate for your concerns/symptoms or as an addition to other treatments you may have, we’ll schedule your session(s)!



Infrared Therapy Session

When you arrive for infrared therapy, we’ll inform you about how it works and what you should feel, as well as answer your questions. Infrared heat penetrates clothing easily, so wear something you can sweat in. During your session, pay attention to how you feel, and don’t hesitate to end the session if you feel lightheaded, nauseous, or dizzy.



Next Steps

The post-infrared therapy experience varies person-to-person. Many people feel relaxed and more centered after their session. Others come out more energetic! You’ll likely look pink and flushed—but not because of the heat; it’s from the increased blood circulation in your skin. After your session, you can book another one if you want to keep the health benefits going!


Pre-Care Instructions

Before Your Infrared Therapy in Scottsdale, Health Cellutions Recommends:


Drink water before your infrared sauna therapy session, during it, and afterward. It’s a good idea to invest in an insulated water bottle so that your water stays cool during your session.


Avoid Alcohol

Your body needs to be fully hydrated before your session, plus your other systems and organs need to be functioning properly.


Leave Your Phone Outside

Part of the therapeutic benefits for your mood include “unplugging” and just focusing on how your body feels.


Wear Comfortable Clothing

Wear clothes that are comfortable, stretchy, and that don’t restrict movement.



Try not to eat right before infrared therapy. Your body rushes blood to your stomach and digestive tract when you eat, and in a sauna, your body pushes blood to your skin. This discrepancy can make people feel dizzy.



Stretch before your session. Loosening up your muscles and ligaments helps the heat penetrate better and helps your body relax more.



Post Treatment

Post-Care Instructions

After Your Infrared Therapy in Scottsdale, Health Cellutions Recommends:


Drink plenty of water after infrared therapy. Not only will this replenish liquids, but it also helps your body cool down and process and eliminate toxins.


Cool Down

After your therapy session, it’s best to take at least 5 to 10 minutes to cool down. Be still and let your body get closer to its normal temperature before moving on with your day.



If you had a longer session and sweat a lot, you’ll want to shower off that sweat and its toxins.



The temperatures and nature of infrared therapy can dry your skin. Have a medical-grade moisturizer ready after you’ve showered and washed your face.


Wait to Exercise

A longer infrared therapy session truly relaxes your muscles, which is the exact opposite of exercise. So, should you want to exercise immediately after a sauna session, you’ll want a shorter session. Otherwise, give your body an hour or 2 to adjust before exercising.


Frequently Asked Questions

How many times a week can I do infrared therapy?

We recommend starting your sessions at 3 to 4 times a week. If you’re healthy and your body tolerates 4 sessions per week, then you can undergo infrared sauna therapy daily if desired.


How long does it take to see benefits of infrared therapy?

Some benefits are immediate, while others take more time to present themselves. The mood lifting and relaxing benefits are fairly immediate, while weight loss, cardiovascular improvement, dementia improvement, and other benefits show over time and repeated therapy sessions.


How hot does an infrared sauna therapy get?

Most infrared saunas reach temperatures between 120 to 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Traditional saunas get much hotter, in part due to the “steam” effect. Lower temperature saunas help you detoxify better, as they encourage fat cells to release the stored toxins.
