You’ve heard of infrared saunas, right? They claim to reduce stress, burn off calories, clear up skin, lift your mood, and deliver a multitude of additional benefits we’re here for. Sauna studios in LA and NYC like Shape House, Sweattheory, HigherDOSE, and Hot Box are a few places where you could sweat your way to detoxification. What these trendy ‘sweat lodges’ have done is taken ancient and traditional healing methods and modernized them (think: LED lights for color therapy and an AUX to play music). While I’ve experienced an infrared sauna—and prefer it to a dry sauna, because it feels as though the heat radiates from within, rather than the classic hot room experience —I’ve always wanted to try a traditional sweat lodge.
