Time Out says
Melt away your stresses at Singapore’s first dedicated infrared sauna studio: Pure Wellness Studio. Located in the CBD – and next to multiple workout studios – it makes a great spot for working millennials and mothers to pop by for a relaxing and rejuvenating sweat sesh.
A hot (literally) trend among Hollywood A-Listers like Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Anniston and Lady Gaga, as well as professional athletes, infrared therapy uses infrared rays to penetrate the skin tissue and heat up the body from the inside out, eliminating toxins from within. This results in a deeper and more detoxifying sweat – burning up to 600 calories in 40 minutes – all while sitting still.
Unlike a normal sauna which heats up the room through boiling rocks and water, the infrared sauna heats up organic matter, with temperatures between 46 to 57-degree celsius. Its many health and wellness benefits include deep detoxification, weight loss, increased metabolism, relaxation, muscle recovery, skin rejuvenation, improved circulation and cardio fitness.
If you’re not one to share, Pure Wellness Studio has you sorted with three private infrared sauna suites. Start with Rejuvenate for a gentler experience, then level up to Recover for a more intense sweat. Each steam-free booth is fitted with chromotherapy lights that contribute to different physical and emotional benefits. Can’t stand being away from your phone for more than a minute? You can bring it in with you and check your emails while you sweat. But if you’d rather lie down than sit throughout, Relax is a pod complete with a pillow for a comfortable yet concentrated sweat sesh.
We tried: Rejuvenate. After a hot yet comfortable evening session in Rejuvenate, a sense of revitalisation followed after. And after waking from a good night’s sleep, we’re convinced that infrared therapy does help in releasing endorphins, increasing circulation and soothing the mind and muscles. We’re sold.
Pure Wellness Studio is offering an introductory price at $75 for two sessions (one Casual Sweat session is $75). You can also bring a friend at an additional price $35. The studio also conducts intimate wellness classes. Follow its Facebook page for updates on the next class.
