Unlike traditional saunas which use wood stoves or heaters to heat the air to intolerable temperatures (sometimes around 85°C), far infrared saunas use the same type of heat as the sun without the ultraviolet rays that we know to be harmful.
Instead of heating the air, infrared saunas use radiant heat to penetrate the body directly. This radiant heat penetrates 1.5 inches deeper into the skin reaching joints, muscles and soft tissue. This is deeper than traditional saunas and at a far lower temperature. Its lower temperatures allow for longer sessions that are more enjoyable and manageable.
This technology provides extensive health benefits, including:
Deep tissue stimulation also improves cell health and tissue growth, assisting you to live a healthier life.
Infrared saunas leave you feeling invigorated, not depleted like traditional saunas. The warming effect on your body stimulates your cardiovascular system, your immune system and your lymphatic system. Your body’s response to that is to sweat. In the far infrared sauna, the body perspires and receives all of the healthy benefits but avoids the harmful and extremely hot air of a traditional steam sauna.
Please be sure to arrive well hydrated. Each persons heat tolerance is different, so being well hydrated will ensure a more enjoyable session. You will release a large amount of sweat throughout, so it is essential you have sufficient fluids.
Please be mindful of the weather outdoors and dress appropriately, however, since it is a common area we recommend you wear whatever you are comfortable in, such as swim wear or underwear.
Since you will continue to perspire for a few minutes after your session be mindful of what you will put on post-sauna.
We have change rooms and showers in the clinic for you to use before and after your session.
The appointment is 50 minutes long, including shower time.
Please be mindful of the time as we do run on schedule and often have appointments back to back. If you are running late, unfortunately that time can not be made up.
It is recommended to stay in the sauna 30-45 minutes (not at a high temperature the entire time) as it will provide the most benefit. You can always step out of the sauna for a breather if you are feeling overwhelmed and need a break, and can re-enter again once you are ready. As your appointment if 50 minutes long be mindful to utilise your time tailored to you.
If you are pairing your sauna with a colonic, it doesn’t matter which goes first. It typically depends on your schedule and availability.
Using the sauna at least 1-3 times a week can yield incredible, lasting results but individual preferences and results vary. Some people use the sauna sporadically or when they have a colonic – it is completely up to you.
It does not matter but it typically depends on your schedule. Most people choose to have a sauna afterwards and then will shower but the results are no different if you prefer to have your sauna beforehand.
Unfortunately, there are certain people who can not use the sauna. If you are pregnant, under the age of 10, very elderly or feeling nauseous and feverish, it is advised not to use the sauna. If you have a particular medical condition please seek your Doctor’s approval before using our Full Spectrum Sauna.
It is absolutely safe to use the sauna despite the current pandemic. Here at Gravity North we have always maintained extremely high and strict hygiene standards and the sauna is sanitised thoroughly between client use.
Gravity North is a private colon hydrotherapy clinic developed to suit your health and detoxification needs. Using the highly regarded Woods Gravity Colonic System you are guaranteed a colonic like no other. There are only a handful of clinics in Australia who use this particular system, and for good reason – it is the safest, yet most effective method of colon hydrotherapy available.
The Woods Gravity Method of colon cleansing allows for a simultaneous in-out flow of water, which means your colon won’t be filled with water in order to release toxins, instead, Peristalsis (the muscular contractions throughout your digestive tract) is activated, allowing for a natural release, rather than forced. The gravity method does not use motors or pumps during the colonic treatment. This translates to a comfortable and relaxing, yet effective, treatment. The most important aspect of the gravity method is that it awakens the colon to do the work of elimination without any force. There is no odour or mess, and all waste goes directly to the sewer.
During the colonic procedure one of our certified therapist is with you the entire time, administering the treatment and massaging the abdominal area leaving you to relax and receive your treatment at ease. During this time we are more than happy to share what we have learned regarding many areas of looking after your body and our understanding of gut health so your body is free of the poisons that are stored in the normal bowel so you can feel better and your body can spend its time healing.
At Gravity North we offer packages of colonics to make your health needs more affordable
A highly trained, certified therapist will be present during the entire treatment. Certified from the Woods institute in Florida, U.S.A
We are here to support and encourage you on the path to a healthier lifestyle and look forward to working with you
