With its triple IRTM (3-in-1) for near, mid and far infrared benefits, the Cocoon Infrared Sauna Pod soothes, heats and raises the core body temperature with deep warmth called resonance that can keep your metabolism elevated for 4-12 hours after your session.
Scientific studies are proving that ‘Hyperthermic Conditioning’ (frequent exposure of the body to intense heat) can offer a wide arrange of health benefits. For instance, according to research by the University of British Columbia the therapeutic use of infrared light can help relieve common pain, stress and fatigue and contribute to treatment programs for chronic diseases including hypertension, diabetes and obesity. Additionally, there is some indication that infrared heat can be used to treat chronic fatigue syndrome.
The Science is in: customers will feel more relaxed and rejuvenated after their very first Cocoon session. With continued use, typically 1-3 sessions per week, Cocoon users will see a significant improvement in the way they look AND feel. We just love treatments that help our clients glow from the inside out.

What’s the difference between a traditional sauna and the Cocoon Infrared Sauna Pod?
The goal of any sauna is to essentially “heat shock” the body to produce various health benefits. However, depending on the type of sauna, the process of heating the body differs.
Traditional saunas, whether a conventional or wet/humid sauna, heat the body externally by raising the air temperature to approximately 160-194 degrees Fahrenheit. The dry or humid, hot air then enables the body to go through physiological processes to “cool” the body down/regulate your body temperature, thus creating a series of benefits, such as sweating, removing toxins, etc.
Infrared saunas, such as the Cocoon, heat the body internally by using infrared wavelengths rather than heating the body with warm air. Far infrared rays penetrate the body, internally warming the core temperature to create physiological benefits. In an infrared sauna, the eternal air is warm and does not get as hot in comparison to a traditional sauna, allowing for a more relaxing sauna experience.
The Cocoon is a unique infrared sauna Pod that delivers far infrared rays. While heating the air (like a conventional sauna) raises the temperature throughout the entire Pod, the infrared wavelengths directly penetrates your body, thus externally AND internally raising your core temperature. Unlike most traditional and infrared saunas chambers, the Cocoon sauna provides an optimal, relaxing sauna experience, allowing you to lay comfortably with your head exposed. While having your head exposed and your body enclosed in the sauna Pod, you can raise/control the temperature to heat your body while breathing clean, purified air during your session.
Who can use the Cocoon infrared sauna POD?
The Cocoon can be used as a heated sauna. If a client is in poor health, they should speak with their doctor before using the Cocoon and any questions should be directed to a medical professional. The Cocoon Infrared Sauna Pod has a weight limit of 350 lbs. Women who are pregnant and members who have cardio health problems are sensitive to heat (i.e., conditions such as erythema ab igne, etc.) or dehydrated should not use the Cocoon Infrared Sauna Pod until they consult with their medical doctor. All users should be hydrated and drink plenty of water before and after use.
What should I wear?
Clients may wear loose-fitting clothes, athletic clothing, swimwear, undergarments, or in the nude (clients will be laying on a towel during the session).
Note: although the Cocoon sauna POD will produce ambient dry heat within the chamber, the main advantage of the sauna session comes from the infrared rays. Therefore, wearing appropriate clothing/minimal clothing is optimal for the infrared rays to penetrate through the body.
What should I expect during my first session?
Note: PRIOR to your first session, it is important to drink plenty of water! For your first session, you will be greeted by one of our friendly staff members and shown back to the Cocoon sauna room, where you will be explained the process of your session. Your session will last approximately 30 minutes. 15 minutes into your first session, a staff member will knock and open the door slightly to check on you and see if you have any questions. During your session, you may feel like you are not getting warm enough in the first 10-15 minutes, this is typical and part of the process of your body slowly acclimating itself to consistent internal heating. It is important to note that depending on your current health condition, Crave Beauty & Wellness Lab recommends to gradually increase the heat intensity after a few sessions due acclimating your body internal and external heat (especially if you have never used an infrared sauna.)
Once your session is complete, you will slowly sit up and re-adjust yourself to your surroundings, as you may experience lightheadedness due to laying down for a prolonged period (orthostatic hypertension). There are no activity restrictions after your sauna sessions, however, it is important to continue to drink plenty of water to prevent dehydration from your session!
Am I able to return to normal activities after my Cocoon infrared sauna session?
There are no activity restrictions after your sauna session. However, you must take into consideration your body’s physiological exertion during your session depending on the heat intensity and your current health condition. Continue to drink plenty of water throughout the day after your session.
Are infrared saunas safe?
Yes. To have a safe infrared sauna experience, it is vital to ensure you are hydrated before and after a session. Recommended time durations of the sauna sessions are established for the safety of the client. Please review the list of contraindications and precautionary restrictions for the infrared sauna usage. Consult with your doctor if you have any questions or concerns about your health prior to your sauna session.
