CHECK IT OUT...
At Peachi we’ve always been about balance – a well rounded approach incorporating strength and conditioning with mobility and recovery.
Now we are taking the next step to levelling up our recovery game, so we’ve been hard at work creating a private, lush Sauna Sanctuary upstairs at our studio and we can’t wait our Peachi People to try it out and reap the benefits!
Scroll on down to check out the benefits, how it works and how to book on in…
How does an Infrared Sauna work?
Infrared saunas heat the body by mimicking the sun. They emit infrared heat to warm up your body directly (rather than heating the air around you), meaning your body temperature is increases from the inside out.
Infrared vs. Traditional Steam Saunas
A dry infrared sauna operates differently, producing a therapeutic effect via the infrared waves generated from the heating element, all without the heat and humidity of a steam (Finnish) unit.
Infrared sauna temperatures usually range from 40 degrees to 60 degrees Celsius (much lower than a traditional Finnish sauna). You’ll still produce plenty of cleansing perspiration, but without the discomfort of the oppressive external heat of the steam.
Scientifically, it has been proven that an infrared sauna produces sweat comprised of 80% water and 20% toxins, while the traditional Finnish (steam) sauna produces sweat consisting of 97% water and just 3% toxins. When weighing the detoxifying benefits, there is no comparison – the infrared unit wins every time!
What are some benefits of sauna therapy?
There are many psychological and physiological benefits associated with consistent (and even first time) sauna therapy:
> Increased blood flow and oxygen to tissues, promoting accelerated muscle recovery.
> Decreased pain and joint stiffness, with studies showing benefit for those with rheumatoid arthritis or ankylosing spondylitis too.
> Improved relaxation and sleep quality.
> Improved heat tolerance.
> Improvements in depression, anxiety, chronic fatigue and hayfever bouts.
> Reduced risk of dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, sudden cardiac death and of all-cause mortality.
> During sauna therapy it is even believed that due to a release of endorphins and opioid-like peptides, you have increased feelings of pleasure and well-being as your body is flooded with feel-good hormones.
Not to mention…
Aside from all the amazing benefits we just listed, one of the key reasons we are so excited to have our Sauna Sanctuary is that it will help our Peachi People take time out from their busy schedules to just be still and have some “me time” – to be forced into mindfulness and relaxation to help with stress reduction and “fill your cup”.
It really is the ultimate me-time where you can focus on yourself and allow your body some down time whilst reaping many wonderful physiological effects!
HOW IT WORKS
When you book a sauna session you have the space to yourself for 45 minutes, where you’re free to sauna and relax with some ‘you time’ 🧘♂️.
If you want to sauna with a buddy you can do that too, you just have to book a ‘Buddy’ session so we know there’s two of you.

What do I need to bring?
Aside from your water bottle, we provide you with a towel, so all you need to bring is comfortable clothes you’re ready to sweat in – bathers, activewear, board shorts, whatever you like really!
You might like to bring your phone and headphones too you can tune out the world and relax!
When do I sauna?
You can sauna directly after a training session or on it’s own as a session too, but we highly recommend you don’t sauna before exercise.
We have a range of times available to book from 6.30am all the way to 7.30pm on weekdays, as well as appointments available on Saturday mornings too.
Do I stay in the sauna for the full 45-minutes?
You have the room for 45-minutes (including time to get changed) but you don’t have to stay in the sauna for the whole time if it feels like it’s a bit too much to begin with – you can come in and out of the sauna, relax in the space and do whatever feels right for you!
What about shower facilities?
Recommendations say that if you take a hot shower before you sauna you will reach a hotter body temperature faster to reap more benefits. You’re welcome to shower at the studio pre and post sauna (we have towels, shampoo etc, hairdryer – everything you need), but you don’t have to shower at the studio if you’d rather head home, we even have cold wet towels to refresh you as you exit the sauna!
Important things to note:
If you haven’t done sauna therapy before or consistently you may find that you feel some of the following effects:
> Fluid loss
> Frequent urination
> Low blood pressure/Light headedness
> Mild heat discomfort
