Infrared sauna use is also a great tool to aid in losing weight as you burn over 600 calories in just one session. Mic drop.

    During your session, you’ll also enjoy benefits from a complimentary added service called chromotherapy {also known as color therapy} which helps to regulate any emotional and mental imbalances. Alyza’s favorite color to use during her sessions is green because “everything that’s good in this world is green — it’s the color used to represent new beginnings, the color of nature for health and the color of money for prosperity.”
