These Infrared Saunas Are the Hottest Self-Care Staple

Cutting-edge infrared saunas heat up Westchester.

In today’s demanding, busy world, we want even our spa treatments to multitask. Enter a relative newcomer to the self-care boom, infrared saunas, which could prove to be the Swiss Army Knife of the spa world. 

These futuristic saunas warm up a user’s core temperature by as much as three degrees through the power of infrared light, which causes vibration in cells and the release of stored toxins. “Who doesn’t love a multitasking approach to health and wellness?” says Naomi Ortiz-Honor, founder of N°Lighten sauna studio in Hastings-on-Hudson. 

According to Ortiz-Honor, the heat elevates heart rate and circulation, flooding users with endorphins that help reduce muscle and joint pain, boosts immunity, and, if used long-term, lowers blood pressure and improves vascular health. She notes that other healing properties of infrared saunas, such as stress reduction and fatigue reduction, are endemic to spa treatments in general.

When asked who can benefit from infrared sauna treatments, her answer is simple: “It’s wonderful for managing pain conditions like fibromyalgia, Lyme disease, arthritis, carpal tunnel, and more.” 

Ortiz-Honor’s personal experience with the healing power of infrared saunas inspired her to bring the service to Westchester. Her studio offers one-hour and half-hour sessions that can also be purchased in packs of 5, 10, and 20 at a discounted price, as well as membership plans. She adds, “It’s a way to take care of yourself in a hectic, toxic world, by taking a break from outside stimuli and detoxing at the same time.”
