How does Totally Tan & Spa's Infrared sauna help me lose weight?
Sunlighten saunas have been shown to aid in weight loss by heating your core temperature to induce sweating. Increases in blood flow and heart rate are a result, which, much like moderate exercise, has shown to help you lose weight. Saunas also help with faster and more effective muscle recovery, which helps you get back to the gym, sport, or activity more quickly.
How much weight can I lose in our Infrared sauna?
There’s a lot that goes into weight loss, including your current weight, nutrition, diet, exercise and fitness level. Totally Tan & Spa’s infrared sauna can be a great addition to your weight loss plan. Sessions have been shown to burn as much as 600 calories, which may be similar to an hour-long jogging session on a treadmill.
What is the difference in steam sauna and our infrared sauna for weight loss?
A traditional sauna uses wet or dry heat to warm the air around you, which induces sweating. This can aid in weight loss, but it has shown that the weight loss is mainly due to loss of water – or heavy sweating. An infrared sauna heats your body from the inside out, which allows you to stay in the sauna longer and increases your heart rate. Infrared sauna use results in more calories burned in a shorter period of time. Furthermore, Solocarbon infrared heat allows for most of the far infrared wavelength to be near 9.4 microns, which is the level at which the human body absorbs infrared energy and can release toxins, also helping with weight loss.

Are our Float Tanks Wheelchair-Accessible?
Totally Tan & Spa is wheelchair-accessible, including our float room, which is ADA Compliant. If you have the upper body strength to lift yourself out of your chair and into bed, for example, you will likely be able to lift yourself out of your chair and into (a) a chair in the shower, and (b) over the float tank door threshold, which is 18 inches off the floor and approximately three feet wide.
If you do not have good upper body mobility/strength, you are, of course, more than welcome to have helpers come in with you and help you in and out of the shower and float tank. We have a comfortable lounge area for assistants to hang out in while you float. This would likely be best with two helpers, one who steps into the float tank with you (there’s lots of room), holding your upper body, and a second person helping guide your legs through the door. Unfortunately our staff are not allowed to assist in this process.
Another area worth mentioning is that in order to use our float tanks, you must have full control over bodily function. Unfortunately, those with unpredictable intestinal or urinary function should not float, as this poses a risk to the quality of the water, and therefore safety of others. Any damage to the water in our float tanks from using them with a known incontinence issue will unfortunately result in a rather large bill for 2,000+ lbs of Epsom salts
