Infrared sauna set to heat up the Westhampton area

A growing trend, infrared saunas can aid in detoxification and can elevate heart rate.

From Richmond BizSense:

A former SunTrust employee is bringing a bit of sunlight to an upcoming Westhampton sauna.

Mary Woodbridge said she plans to open Purify, an infrared sauna, at 5609 Patterson Ave. in July. She has five-year lease on the 1,800-square-foot space.

Purify will have four private infrared sauna rooms, one room for massage therapy and two additional rooms. The saunas will have panels that project infrared light at up to 140 degrees. An hour-long sauna session will cost $40, less when bought in bulk or with a membership.

Infrared saunas, which are a growing trend across the country, use an invisible portion of the light spectrum to aid in detoxification and can even simulate cardiovascular exercise through an ability to raise heart rate.
