Perspire Sauna Studio’s founder, Lee Braun, was inspired by the science-backed properties of infrared saunas. He had first hand experience with the benefits – from sweating, weight loss, skin purification, relaxation, eased joint/muscle pain – and overall he just felt better after each session. He was shocked to discover there was no easy way to get an infrared sauna session. So, back in 2010 he began the journey to make these benefits convenient and accessible to his Southern California community.
The age-old wellness practices of sauna heat therapy are proven and trusted, for one simple reason — they work. The first saunas built in Africa were developed to rid the body of infectious diseases. The Finnish tradition of sauna use is thought to date back as far as 7000 BC to optimize health on a daily basis. For these ancient cultures, saunas were not a luxury, but a necessity.
Here at Perspire Sauna Studio, we lead with that same belief. It’s no secret that toxins and stress invade our bodies every single day which causes a multitude of health problems both seen and unseen. It’s necessary to remove this from our bodies to optimize health.
Knowledge makes our guests powerful. As they recognize their body’s positive response to infrared and red light therapy they will not only become wiser about their bodies, they will become healthier, their immune systems stronger, their skin will glow and their bodies will heal — naturally.
