What is 3 Degrees?
3 Degrees is an infrared sauna studio focused exclusively on infrared saunas and the amazing benefits they offer. Each infrared sauna is in its own private suite that you do not share with anyone other than someone of your choice. The list of benefits is found here.
Why should I sweat?
Each day we are exposed to hundreds of chemicals in the air we breathe, the things we touch, the products we put on our skin, and the food we eat and drink. Not all chemicals can be processed by the body adequately, nor can an endless amount or number of them be handled at the same time. Some are even poisonous to the point of damaging critical parts that are supposed to detoxify our bodies, like liver enzymes. By coming to 3 Degrees each week our infrared saunas are able to help your body get rid of these destructive toxins.
What is the difference between infrared and traditional saunas?
Infrared heat is a soothing and gentle way to heat the body. Traditional saunas operate in excess of 180 degrees F making the experience extremely hot and claustrophobic. Infrared saunas have the benefit of being effective at a much more comfortable and tolerable temperature between 125 degrees to 158 degrees F.
Traditional saunas only heat the air around you whereas infrared saunas penetrate your skin giving you a deep detoxifying sweat. Because infrared heat penetrates deep into tissues versus just the skin’s surface infrared is 7 times more effective than traditional saunas at detoxifying the body. By raising the body’s core temperature by 3 Degrees, infrared saunas can produce a sweat composed of 20% toxins verse the 3% with a traditional sauna.
Do you sell gift cards?
Yes! Give the gift of health and wellness with a gift card to 3 Degrees. You can purchase a gift card online through our mindbody store by clicking here to purchase or you can also stop in to either of our studios and purchase in person.
What should I wear?
Some individuals prefer to sweat with little to no clothing, However, it is safe to use the sauna in a bathing suit or workout attire. We provide a wrap for members and there are extra towels provided for your session. We do require that you have at least one towel between you and the sauna bench while you sauna. After your session, your cool-down period may involve some residual sweating.
How often should I come?
The more the better! Based on your individual health and wellness goals, we recommend at least two times a week. For greater impact, 3-4 times a week is recommended. WE suggest you try sessions immediately following a workout /fitness program to see the best results.
Will I be losing water weight?
Yes, which will be regained upon hydration, but the calories burned are real. As you relax in the gentle heat of our saunas, your body is actually hard at work pumping blood (increased heart rate), increasing circulation, and producing sweat to cool you down. This results in a caloric burn.
Is it true I'm still burning calories after my session?
Yes! By increasing your heart rate and core body temperature by 3 Degrees in your session, it could take up to an hour to return to normal which allows you to continue to burn calories.
Do you have showers/changing rooms?
The private sauna suite is your personal changing room. We do not offer showers, as it is recommended to let the body cool down and pores close for at least 30 minutes after the session before showering. It is likely that you will continue to sweat and detox for up to 30 minutes after your session. We also provide a eucalyptus-infused cold towel to use after your session to cool down.
Can I get a tan?
No, although the infrared band of light is found in sunlight, it does not cause you to tan or any premature aging of your skin because there is no UV light.
Does the sauna contain EMF?
We have the most effective and safe infrared heaters in our saunas on the market. EMF levels in our saunas will mostly be below 1mg when tested on the heater directly itself. When you are in the sauna the EMF levels are nearly 0 mG.
Can I share my membership sessions?
Membership sessions are non-transferable as they are highly discounted. However, you can add a family member with $10 off their membership of choice.
Can I share my package sessions?
Yes, they are transferable and active for 6 months from your first infrared sauna session.
Will my unused membership sessions expire?
Your membership sauna sessions roll over for 90 days while your account is active. Once you choose to cancel your membership you have 30 days from final membership payment to use unused sessions before they expire.
What is your cancellation policy?
All infrared sauna sessions need to be rescheduled or canceled 2 hours before your scheduled session. Failure to do so will result in the loss of a session or a late charge of $15.00.
How long are your infrared sauna sessions?
Each infrared sauna session is 40 minutes in your sauna. You have your private suite for 1 hour to allow you time to get in and out. If you go any longer, your body has to work harder than it needs to without any increase in benefits.
What do I do when in my sauna?
That’s the best part. You do not have to do anything. You can watch DirecTV which is wired in with sound, turn off everything and meditate, relax, or read.
What kind of saunas do you have?
Our infrared saunas are full-spectrum at the eastside which combines near, mid, and far-infrared. Our infrared saunas at the westside are far infrared. You are able to use either.
How many calories can I burn?
Our infrared saunas can help you to burn up to 600 calories in a session. A moderately fit person can sweat one pound of sweat in a 40 minute session which is the equivalent of running 2 miles but without the hard impact on your joints.
How many times a day can I sauna?
We only allow you to sauna 1 time a day.
Can I bring my children with me?
Due to liability reasons, those who are not there to use the infrared saunas can not wait in the studio. We plan accordingly before scheduling your infrared sauna session.
How old do you have to be to sauna?
We do not allow anyone under the age of 18 without parental consent. Please contact the studio for more information for those 16 and 17.
What should I bring for my first session?
We recommend that you come 15 minutes before your scheduled sauna session so we have time to fill out your consent form and give you a proper informative tour. Remove all make-up, bring plenty of water to drink, a towel should you want more than provided, and loose-fitting clothing for after your sessions.
What do I need to do before my sauna session?
We recommend that you hydrate as much as possible and eat something light. We advise against eating a large meal as your body will then be busy digesting your food during your sessions.
Do I need to have an appointment?
We highly encourage appointments to make sure we have a sauna available for you. Walk-ins are of course welcome but subject to availability.
Is the sauna sanitized?
Yes, we clean and sanitize each sauna with non-toxic cleaner after each sauna session. We also provide clean towels washed in hospital-grade cleaner. Infrared light also kills 99% of bacteria and any airborne germs or fungus. Many medical devices are actually sanitized with infrared light. We know how important good health is to all of our members and clients and we work extra hard to keep our studio a safe place for all.
What is your latest appointment?
Our last infrared sauna sessions begin 1 hour prior to closing. Should we have no scheduled session for that time we close 1 hour early.
How do I cancel my membership?
We require that you have completed your contract first. Once your membership has gone month to month we just require an in-studio written notice with one final payment. (30 days notice). Once your final payment is received you have 30 days to utilize any leftover sessions before they expire.
How do I freeze my membership?
You are eligible to freeze your membership once every 6 months. We require 30 days notice and a max of 2 month freeze. To begin your freeze we need you to fill out a form in the studio.
Can I use my cell phone in the sauna?
We do not mind if you use your cell phone in the sauna, we just ask that you do not make calls or facetime while in the sauna as to not disturb those around you.
Is there anyone who should not sweat?
The only ones who should not sweat are pregnant women (although, once the baby is out, the benefits will do wonders for you), those with pacemakers, and those who have the inability to sweat.
