Infrared Stone Therapy
Infrared stone therapy offers many benefits for your overall health and wellbeing:
Assist with metabolism
Purify negative energy
Improve blood circulation
Relieve pain and inﬂammation and stiffness
Improve relaxation and decrease stress
Detoxify the body of toxins and metals
Accelerate recovery after workout or injury
Improve physical, mental, and spiritual well-being
Relax your mind and body with hot stone therapy
Temporarily increase localized blood circulation where applied
At Sukhino, we offer two ways to enjoy those benefits - either as an add-on service inside our salt cave, or as a stand-alone service with a few extra bells and whistles to help you relax.
What is Infrared Stone Therapy?
Infrared stone therapy may be known by many other names, including far infrared therapy, gemstone therapy, infrared mat therapy, and more. So what is it?
It can be administered in several ways too, but here at Sukhino you rest atop a state-of-the-art, heavy duty mat that's layered with infrared heat, insulation, and precious gemstones that are known for their own healing qualities as well as their ability to transfer heat evenly.
You can choose from two options when you schedule time on one of our quality Healthyline infrared mats. Each service option has its own perks, and each feature offers unique benefits. Scroll down to learn about each.

Far Infrared Benefits
Relief from Minor Muscle Aches, Joint Pain, and Back Pain
Infrared stone therapy is most commonly known for its ability to assist the body in temporarily reducing or relieving minor aches and pains in the muscles and joints. Because it uses far infrared rays that penetrate 4-6 inches below the surface of your skin, it will slightly increase your body's core temperature, which helps to deliver more oxygen to the areas that need it most.
This therapy is particularly helpful for those who suffer from arthritis, lower back pain, or everyday "life" aches - including stiff joints or minor injuries.
Stress Relief and Rest
We live in a stressed out society, so carving out a few minutes of your day to rest is the ultimate way to reclaim control of your health and wellness.
After a few minutes on the mat, many people report a "melting" sensation, where they feel the stress and tension just melt away, leaving them grounded and at ease.
Because you can also take advantage of our binaural beats headphones, your brain will "hear" special tones designed to move your brainwaves to Delta, the most blissful, restful stage. The acupressure eye massager is a pretty sweet treat too!
The use of infrared rays can help reduce water retention in the body and elimination of any metals as well. According Healthyline, the manufacturer of our mats, "These toxins cannot be expelled instantly, so they accumulate in our bodies, encapsulated in water molecules. These trapped toxins lead to blocked blood circulation, impaired cellular energy, and illness. When we are exposed to FIR waves, the molecules trapping toxins inside us vibrate and break apart, and are expelled through excessive sweating caused by FIR heat therapy. FIR is a safe and effective way to detoxify and is considered seven times more effective than steam saunas or conventional heat. (1)"
Reduce Chronic Fatigue Symptoms
Using FIR (far-infrared therapy) consistently each day has been shown to support your efforts to improve energy levels, maximize comfort, and reduce aches and pains that are often present with chronic fatigue and CFS (2) Even using the infrared therapy a few times a month can produce remarkable changes.
If you need daily sessions, purchasing an infrared therapy mat from us may be the most convenient and affordable option. We have several models available to meet your health and budget needs.
Improve Overall Wellness
If you're seeking a non-pharmaceutical option to boost mood, reduce aches and pains, and let go of the stress and tension that weigh you down, infrared stone therapy may help.
Our guests often say the same thing after a session... WOW.
What to Expect
before your session
Caffeine and nicotine can provide a burst of energy that makes it harder to relax during the session. Avoid drugs and alcohol too.
Eat a little.
A growling stomach will be distracting, but also try to avoid eating a heavy meal so you don't feel sluggish. Light meals and snacks are great!
Your internal body temperature will rise, and you may perspire during this session. It's best to dress light, but you are in a public space.
We provide everything you'll need, but if you'd like to change clothes for your session, feel free to do so. You may change in the restroom.
arriving at Sukhino
Please arrive about 10 minutes before your scheduled time so we can get you checked in and provide a thorough orientation. Please do not arrive more than 20 minutes before your scheduled start time.
You may park on Holy Trinity Street, across from our door (except on Thursday mornings), or in the parking lot behind The Kula Center building. If those options are full, you can park on Market Street.
We ask you to remove your shoes at the reception area to keep the center as clean as possible. We provide cozy, non-slip socks to keep your feet warm, but you're welcome to bring a clean pair of your own.
We will guide you through the "need-to-know" information when you arrive. You'll rest on a comfortable lounge chair, and have the option to use our eye massager and/or listen to binaural beats. It's a chance to just be.
after your session
Take a few minutes in our lounge. Have some water or hot tea. Jot a note in the Salty Reflections journal or bring your own. Give yourself the gift of moving slowly and mindfully before you rush back to "the real world".
If you need to "get ready" before you leave, take your time in our Ready Room. We provide a hair dryer, curling iron and wands, flat iron, combs, spray deodorant, and a few other body and skincare products.
Visit the other services in Kula Center upstairs, or shop in our boutique, where we've stocked a few favorite items to help you continue self-care at home. You'll find epsom salts, CBD oil, supplements, and more.
You may feel a bit dehydrated after your session. Be sure to drink extra water throughout the remainder of your day.
Then try to take it easy and prolong those relaxed, peaceful vibes.

Is your facility handicap-accessible?
With that said, we do provide a transfer bench, and we have installed grab bars in as many places as we can, and we have extra large, open showers. You're also welcome to bring someone who can assist you, but in doing so, you assume all risk and liabilities.
Who should NOT use infrared therapy and/or its other features?
As much as it pains us to say, there are a few situations in which we wouldn't recommend using our infrared therapy mats.
Can I use an FSA or HSA account?
Typically yes! We are classified as an alternative wellness provider and do accept FSA/HSA cards. Check with your plan to see if they cover "8099 Medical Services Health Practioners - Not Elsewhere Classified".
Do you offer an unlimited infrared therapy package?
We have several "off menu" options to help you meet your infrared therapy and budget needs. Just ask us if you're interested in something other than our Flex Membership.
Is there a minimum requirement for the Flex Membership?
Our Flex Membership is meant to provide you with an affordable option to ensure you're getting the self-care you need and deserve. In order to ensure we're able to provide that for you, we ask for a three-month commitment and a two-week notice to cancel. We do ask you to review and sign a quick membership agreement.
Infrared stone therapy is not a substitute for medical treatment and diagnosis of any health condition. It is recommended that you seek medical advice relating to your health problems; do not neglect regular medical check-ups; do not change or stop taking your medication and treatment without consulting the physician.
