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

Far Infrared Benfits

Relief from Minor Muscle Aches, Joint Pain, and Back Pain

5.png

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

icon_anxiety.png

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!

Detoxification

sweating.png

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

4.png

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

Seating Options

before your session

Avoid stimulants.

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!

Dress down.

 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.

Pack light.

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

Leave early.

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.

Park.

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. 

No shoes.

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.

Expect nothing.

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

Relax.

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".

Get ready.

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.

Browse.

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.

Drink water.

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.

  • Other surprises along the way!

  • What is floating?
    The short answer: awesome. The more informative answer: You step into a oversized tub with 10 inches of skin-temperature water and over 1000 pounds of epsom salt. You lie back and float, completely effortlessly, on the silky solution. You can choose to have the lights on or off and you can listen to music of enjoy silence.
  • What is halotherapy?
    The short answer: amazing. The more informative answer: You sit in a community (shared) space, breathing in salty air while allowing your body and mind to relax. We use a halogenerator to grind up pharmaceutical grade salt into microparticals that are dispersed into the air of the salt cave. During your session, you'll relax and just breathe. We strongly encourage you to leave your devices behind and just allow yourself a few moments of your day to disconnect with the world and reconnect with your breath.
  • What should I wear?
    Nothing. Seriously. For the best experience, we recommend your birthday suit! (It makes packing easier too!) There are several reasons for this: Salt will absolutely gather in the fabric, and as the surface of your skin that floats above the water dries, it will begin to feel crusty, and could be irritating. Swimsuits are usually worn in chlorine pools and washed with detergents, which means you could introduce chemicals into the pristine float solution, causing contamination. New suits are often soaked with heavy dyes which could bleed, causing discoloration of the float solution or staining of the fiberglass tub. If this happens, you could be charged for the replacement costs for the float solution, resurfacing of the float room, and cancelled appointments, up to $1500.
  • Is the water changed after each guest?
    We could... but it'd probably drive the costs up to about $1500 per float, and we'd only offer one per day. Instead, we keep the costs down by moving the solution through a 5-micron filter 4-6 times between each guest. It also passes through a UV sanitization AND an ozone treatment on each cycle. Not to mention that our solution is saltier than the Dead Sea, and well, it's called the dead sea for a reason. Pretty much nothing can live in that kind of environment. If you're not convinced, take a few minutes to watch this video. Dr. Roy Vore is a microbiologist and expert in recreational water illness. He has spent his career studying how people get sick in pools and spas, and has recently turned his eye towards float tanks. We at Sukhino had the pleasure of learning from him directly at an international float conference before we opened.
  • Can I float before/after my salt cave session?
    What a great idea! In order to be efficient with your time, we recommend scheduling your float first, and then sitting in the cave after. If you choose the salt cave session first, you will likely have a 30 to 75 minute wait until the next float session begins.
  • How deep is the water? What if I can't swim?
    You'll step into a tub with about 10 inches or so of float solution (water + 1000 pounds of epsom salt). You don't have to know how to swim, and you don't even have to know how to float! The solution does all the work for you. We've never met anyone who can't float in this environment... it's denser than the Dead Sea!
  • Will my ears go under?
    It's highly likely that your ears will certainly go under the water line. We do provide a "halo" that's used behind your head to help you relax the neck muscles and allow the head to float naturally. We also provide earplugs to minimize any salt water going into your ears, but we do ask everyone to rinse their ears in the post-float shower. We provide a solution of 50% vinegar (to dissolve the salt) and 50% alcohol (to dry up the water).
  • How often should I sit in the salt cave?
    This really depends on your own needs. If you have a cold, flu, respiratory infection, or other temporary breathing challenge, you may find the most benefit from visiting several times in a week. If you have chronic respiratory or epidermal conditions (like asthma, allergies, psoriasis, etc.), we recommend visiting 15-20 times in as short a time period as you can. It's most effective at least twice per week, and then repeated in that manner 2-3 times per year, or as symptoms persist. For stress relief or just the fun of it, visit as often as you like.
  • How long do you stay in there?
    Our floats are up to 75 minutes, with the option to upgrade to 90 minutes. With that said, you can get out ANYTIME. Some folks feel wonderful after just 30 minutes or so, and some want to stay in to soak up every last second. It's completely up to you. For your appointment, expect to be at Sukhino for around an hour and a half, which includes your check-in, orientation, pre- and post-float showers, and your float session. You can also hang out in our lounge as long as you'd like (up closing time... we had to say that because our lounge is REALLY comfy and it's easy to lose track of time!).
  • Are there any side effects to using halotherapy?
    Sometimes, yes, especially if you have a respiratory condition. Dry throat and increased coughing in the beginning: This is a natural part of the cleaning process of the respiratory system, during which the pollution, accumulated through a long time, and now loosened up by salt, are expelled from even the deepest regions of the lungs. Such side effects should cease with the removal of pollution and pathogens. Skin irritation and increased dermal sensitivity: If this occurs, decrease the frequency of salt therapy sessions. Thirst and slight irritation of the eyes: After and prior use of the salt rooms, consume sufficient liquids to prevent dehydration. It's recommended to take 5 minutes prior to leaving the premise to consume sufficient liquids to prevent dehydration and lightheadedness before operating a motor vehicle.
  • Is it dark in the salt cave?
    The lighting is dim, but not completely dark. We have a feature wall with backlit Himalayan salt tiles, as well as Himalayan salt lamps throughout the room, and we have "firefly" lights twinkling overhead. You might be able to read, but we ask that you don't use any bright lights or backlit devices that could disturb others.
  • Can I use essential oils, bath bombs, or other bath products during my float?"
    Oh, please don't. We absolutely LOVE those products (and even sell some in our shop for you to use at home), but introducing chemicals, fragrances, and other materials into the float solution can cause problems with our filtration system. And not everyone agrees on the perfect scent, so whatever odors you bring into the room will likely linger for the next guest, who may have allergies or sensitivities.
  • Is there a weight restriction for the salt cave seats?
    Some chairs do have weight limits. The floating lounge chairs can acommodate up to 400 pounds, and the swinging hammock chair up to 350. Click here to learn more about our seating options.
  • Can I float with a friend/spouse/family member?
    Our float rooms acommodate one person at a time. You can schedule your appointment for the same time though, as we have three nearly identical float suites available.
  • Can children use the salt cave?
    We ask that any guest is mindful of noise and disturbing other guests who may be seeking quiet. Halotherapy is a wonderful option for children, so we will be adding kid-friendly events in the near future.
  • I'm really tall. Will I fit in the float room?
    Probably. Our float rooms are quite spacious at 54 inches wide and 96 inches long. (That's 4.5 feet by 8 feet if you don't like math.) Most folks have plenty of space to stretch out.
  • How long has halotherapy been "a thing"?"
    Halotherapy has a looooooong history. Polish miners in the 1800s noticed positive changes in their skin and respiration. They began spending 2-3 hours a day in the underground salt caves, and eventually, simulated caves were created.
  • Can I float before/after a massage?
    ABSOLUTELY! We love how you think! Some people prefer to float before, while some prefer to float after a massage, so we really think it's a personal preference. The only thing we ask is that if you float AFTER a massage, please take extra time in the shower to ensure all oils are washed away before stepping into the float room. And if you're looking for a great massage therapist, may we recommend Dailey Wellness & Massage, conveniently located on the second floor of The Kula Center, the same building where we're located?! :-)
  • What should I bring with me?
    We try to provide everything you'll need. We have towels, delightful shampoo, conditioner, and body wash, as well as earplugs, hair dryers, combs, and most basic toiletries. If you like to have anything special, or things that aren't sanitary to share, please bring those.
  • Is the water hot?
    Warm? Yes. Hot? No. Unlike a hot tub, you're not going to get sweaty. We keep both the float solution and air temperature around 93.5-94.5 degrees, which is the same temperature as the average external skin temp. In many cases, guests have told us they can't tell where their skin ends and the water or air begin. Pretty neato.
  • My hair is dyed or chemically treated. Can I float?
    It's heartbreaking to tell anyone they can't float, but we might have to ask you to wait a bit. Hair dye often runs in the float solution, causing discoloration and staining of the fiberglass. Just as bad, it might ruin your freshly dyed hair job! We recommend that you've washed your hair at least 8-10 times and ensured that absolutely no color runs in the shower or when dried with a white towel. If you have a keratin treatment, you've likely been advised to avoid salt water, so we'd agree with that. Our best recommendation is to schedule your float near the time of your next hair appointment so your hair doesn't get ruined, and neither do our tanks. In the event of hair dye, you may be charged up to $1500 to recover the cost of replacing the float solution, refinishing stained fiberglass, and any cancelled appointments. If we're able to reduce these costs, we would refund any overage in the charges you incur. We aren't the kind of folks to try to make money off of a situation like this, but we do ask you to cover the cost of damages, or better yet... schedule smart. :-)
  • How often should I float?
    This really depends on your own needs. If you have chronic pain, floating once or more per week is most effective for finding relief. If you are severely stressed, you may find a few floats per month to be helpful. If you're floating just for a little "me time", perhaps monthly is ideal for you. Float experiences usually get better each time, so a consistent float schedule reaps the most benefit. (It's sorta like going to the gym! One round of cardio isn't going to drop 5 pounds!) The first float is really just trying to figure out what you're doing, the second float is when you really start to relax, and by the third float, you'll likely be able to find that sweet bliss pretty quickly. As with any self-care, consistency is key.
  • Do I have to be in the dark and silence?
    Nope. Something magical happens when your brain is given the opportunity to truly rest without any external stimuli, but we know that might not be comfortable for everyone. Your float room has an LED light inside, and you choose what color it is, and whether or not to turn it off. We can also set music to play at the beginning and end of your float to help you settle and to reawaken peacefully, or we can leave it on for the entire session. You can then choose to turn it off later, or adjust the volume. Alternatively, you can create your own playlist or listen to your favorite audiobook or podcast and hook up your phone to our provided ports.
  • Why do I have to shower TWICE?
    The first shower is to ensure all dirt, chemicals, dust, body products, and debris are removed before you step into the float room. We ask that you use body wash and shampoo (provided) for the first shower, but no conditioner. We all like squeaky clean water, right? The second shower after your float is just to get the salt off your body, and it's a chance to condition your hair if you'd like. (You don't have to use body wash or shampoo on this round since you're already clean!) If you feel a stingy sensation after you leave, it's likely that the salt has dried on your skin.
  • Is there a weight restriction to float?
    Generally speaking, nope. As long as you can safely step in and out of the float room without assistance, we'd be honored to host your float. Different body shapes hold weight in different areas, so if your weight is around the belly and bum, it might be best to reach out to us first, so we can ensure the float solution is at optimum levels so you experience weightlessness.
  • Do I have to get my hair wet?
    Probably. You're welcome to try a swim cap, but it works a bit differently than it does when swimming. Most of the time, in a pool, you're in motion, so water just glides right on by. In a float room, you're still, so there's a good chance salt water will seep in around the seal, which may cause discomfort. If you find a super comfy, great-fitting swim cap that doesn't leak in still waters, please let us know so we can keep some on hand. ;-) Otherwise, we have a great blow dryer, curling wand, and flattening iron waiting for you in the "ready room".
  • Can children float?
    This decision is handled on a case-by-case basis. We ask that a parent has floated with us before, so he or she knows the process and what to expect in order to make an educated judgment call. Generally speaking, kids under 10 aren't ready for showering, being in a quiet space, and avoiding salty splashes on their own. After a discussion with a parent, we're happy to make that decision together. If it is agreed that a child under the age of 15 can float with us, we ask that a parent stay in the room to assist as necessary. It's important to be aware that some children (as well as women) experience some stinging in the genital areas. This is a fairly common reaction, especially in pre-pubescent girls, as well as girls and boys going through puberty due to a reaction of the hormones in the body. We provide a non-petroleum ointment that can be applied to the external organs to help prevent the burning.
  • Will my fingers get super wrinkly?
    No prunes here, folks. It's a pretty cool magic trick. The high level of epsom salt actually prevents your skin from wrinkling!
  • What if I get salt water in my eyes?
    It will burn. Possibly a lot. But we know it happens sometimes, no matter how careful you are, so we leave a little spray bottle of fresh water and a clean towel inside the float room so you can spritz the burn away and get back to your peaceful place quickly.
  • How long has floating been "a thing"?"
    The first float experience was created in 1954 by John C. Lily. He and several colleagues began studying the effects of sensory deprivation, and one of his participants was Glenn Perry, who then invented the first commerical float tank in 1972. Scientific studies about float therapy have been underway for nearly 70 years, and the research keeps growing. Check out www.clinicfloatation.com for more information.
  • Can I float for longer than the regular appointment time allows?
    Absolutely! You can upgrade to a 90-minute session for only $10 more (free for float members!), or you can book back-to-back appointments to float for 3 hours. If you'd like more than that, reach out and we'll do our best to help you!
  • Sometimes my body twitches when I'm floating. Why?
    Say hello to our little friend, the hynogogic jerk. He's not really a jerk. He's just an involuntary muscle spasm that happens when you're drifting off to Sleepytown. It's actually a good indicator that you're relaxed and releasing tension during that transition from wakefulness to sleep. Hypnogogic jerks are also sometimes called sleep twitches, night starts, or myoclonic jerks. A myoclonus is an involuntary muscle twitch; hiccups are another form of myoclonus. It might feel like a jerk or jolt, a falling sensation, quickened breath, a rapid heartbeat, or a startled feeling. If it's bothersome to you, you might try the following: Avoid caffeine or other stimulants before your float. Do a few breathing exercises at the beginning of your float. Inhale for a count of 10, hold for 5 breaths, and slowly exhale for 10. If that feels like too long, start with shorter times and work your way up over time. (Don't do hold your breath if you're pregnant. Instead, just focus on the inhale and exhale.) Stretch before you float. Just do a few toe touches or twists before your shower, or try a few seated twists as soon as you enter the float room.
  • Is it safe for pregnant women to use halotherapy?
    It's always a good idea to check with your physician for any health concerns, but we are not aware of any contraindications between pregnancy and halotherapy.
  • Is it safe for pregnant women to float?
    We always recommend checking with your primary care physician, but in most cases, it's not only fine, but it's a little bit of heaven for expecting mommas! Pregnancy brings many aches and pains with all the changes to a woman's body, but floating provides a unique opportunity to relieve some of that pressure. We even keep a big, soft pool noodle so you can drape yourself over it and float with your belly down! (Every pregnant woman knows what a treat that is!) Image credit and more information about floating during pregnancy here: Float Tank Solutions.
  • Is your facility handicap-accessible?
    Unfortunately, it is not. We are located in the walkout basement level of a historic building. You must be able to walk down several stairs to enter our space, and you must be able to step in and out of the float room (a slippery, wet environment) without our assitance. 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 halotherapy?
    As much as it pains us to say, there are a few situations in which we wouldn't recommend using our salt cave. Halotherapy is not recommended in the following cases: tuberculosis, fever, acute inflammatory diseases, contagious condition, severe heart disorders, acute respiratory attack, or for those who require constant use of an oxygen tank. Although halotherapy is considered as a supplemental and/or elective treatment, the use of the salt room is not intended to substitute for medical care or treatment. Do not stop your medication without first consulting with your doctor. The salt therapy does NOT substitute any conventional medication.
  • Who should NOT float?
    As much as it pains us to say, there are a few situations in which we wouldn't recommend floating. Diabetes In some cases, magnesium sulfate (the epsom salts in our float rooms) may have an affect on blood glucose. We strongly recommend consulting with your doctor before floating if you have diabetes. Also note that if you have any open wounds, the salt water will cause stinging. Low blood pressure Because floating causes blood pressure to decrease, it can be dangerous for those with already-low blood pressure to float, especially when standing to exit at the end of a float. Take extra precaution, but speak with your physician before scheduling an appointment. Seizures If you are prone to seizures, we recommend avoiding floating due to the enclosed, salty, wet environment. Kidney disease It is still debated as to whether magnesium sulfate (epsom salt) is absorbed through the skin, however, many believe that it is. The kidneys then process what is absorbed, and it is known that the kidneys are responsible for processing magnesium. Consult with your physician before floating.
  • Can I float while menstruating?
    Yes, as long as you take the same precautions you would when swimming. You are required to use a tampon or menstrual cup, and we do ask that you avoid scheduling your appointment during heavy flow days to prevent leaks. Should the water be contaminated, you may be charged up to $1500 to replace the float solution and sanitize the float room, and to cover the costs of cancelled appointments that are scheduled after yours.
  • What if I'm claustrophobic?
    The most important thing to know is that you are in complete control of your environment. Our float rooms are spacious at 54 inches by 96 inches, and they're about 7 feet high at the entry, so you can stand up. The ceiling slopes down in a wave pattern toward the back of the room, and the door is glass, so you can easily see out into the shower. You're welcome to open the shower door during your session, or even get out and stretch anytime. You choose whether to have the lights on or off so you can see the space around you, but most people who aren't comfortable in small spaces find our rooms to be inviting and quite comfortable. And if you float in the dark, it might even feel like you're floating in outer space, which is pretty different from feeling like you're in a tiny spot. We invite you to come by for a tour before scheduling your appointment, so you can see how the float rooms feel before you try it.
  • I hear crunchy sounds or water in my ears after my float. What can I do to relieve that?
    Even when using the provided earplugs, it's possible that salt water trickled into the ear canal. We provide a solution of 50% vinegar (to dissolve the salt) and 50% alcohol (to dry up the later) in the shower for each guest, and you're welcome to swing by the center to use ours or you can easily mix it up at home. Just squirt it into the ear, then tilt your head to the side to let the solution run out.
  • Will my skin feel dry after a float?
    Generally speaking, not at all! Most people even send us love letters the next day because their skin is oh, so soft. With that said, if you experience dryness or irritation, there's a good chance you didn't get all of the salt off during your post-float shower. Take another shower as soon as you can, and apply your favorite skin moisturizer.
  • 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 salt cave package?
    We do not. We do, however, have a great deal available with our Sukhino Salt Lovers membership. If you have a medical need or another strong desire to visit more frequently, talk to Graham or Kim (the owners), and we'd love to see what we can do to help for your situation.

  • Is there a contract to become a member?
    Our Sukhino Salt Lovers Memberships are 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 short contract, but we hope you'll find the added benefits to be worth the investment.
  • Does insurance cover float therapy?
    We are unable to directly bill your insurance company, but we have heard from some guests who have been successful in getting reimbursed for floating if it is recommended by a physician. We're happy to provide you with a receipt for your attendance that you can use to request reimbursement.
