Urban Oasis Salt Spa Adds Infrared Sauna

Northern Michigan’s only infrared salt spa brings a new dimension in overall wellness. Urban Oasis now offers Himalayan salt therapy rooms, massage, reflexology, infrared salt sauna, reiki, facials and more. There are classes focusing on meditation, mindfulness and Salty Yoga, plus outstanding special events like singing bowl sound therapy concerts, Native American flutes and more.

            Owners David and Carol Saxton explain that infrared salt saunas are an effective method of promoting natural healing and prevention. Infrared light has the ability to penetrate human tissue, which produces a host of anti-aging health benefits, making infrared saunas one of the hottest therapies for overall healthier living. Clients may choose from 30- or 60-minute sessions and save when purchasing a series of sessions.

            Infrared saunas don’t heat the air, they warm the body directly to penetrate more deeply. According to the Mayo Clinic, many studies found proof that saunas may help with the treatment of high blood pressure, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, headache, Type 2 diabetes, arthritis and other conditions.
