New to beem® or light therapy?
Check out some of our most frequently asked questions, below.
What should I expect?
Relax and unwind in your own private suite while burning up to 600 calories and detoxing from the inside out! Our full spectrum infrared saunas combine three infrared wavelengths (Near, Mid, and Far) to optimize absorption and maximize health benefits.
beem® light sauna sessions are 40-minutes long. You can enjoy your infrared session in our Solo Saunas or bring a friend and head into one of our larger Social Saunas. Your sauna comes with built-in entertainment so you can catch your favorite TV Shows or listen to your preferred music on Pandora. Want to unplug completely and enjoy the suite’s light therapy? The choice is yours!
What should I wear to my light session?
We provide towels for your light session. If you feel more comfortable wearing clothes during your session, choose loose, breathable clothing. You may also want to bring a swimsuit if you are sweating with a friend. Less is more while allowing your skin to breathe and sweat it out. Please remove any body oils/lotions before your session.
Can I enjoy an infrared session with a friend?
Yes! We love when you want to share the benefits of light therapy with your friends. Our Social Saunas are for up to 2 people. When booking online make sure to book the Social Sauna! We will not be able to accommodate more than one person in our Solo Saunas.
What is Chromotherapy?
Chromotherapy is the science of using colors to adjust body vibrations to frequencies that result in health and harmony. Each color possesses frequencies of a specific vibration, and each vibration is related to different physical symptoms. During your infrared sauna session, you can choose from 8 different colors, with each color addressing your individual needs.
What is Infrared?
Infrared wavelengths are the invisible light on the electromagnetic spectrum that emits heat. It is not visible to the human eye but instead feels like heat and has the ability to penetrate human tissue and raise the body’s core temperature. Infrared heat is helpful with: Anti-aging + Pain Relief + Detoxification + Relaxation + Weight Loss + Lower Blood Pressure.
Can I use an Infrared sauna if I have metal or silicone surgical implants?
Metal pins, rods, artificial joints, or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared waves and thus are not heated. Infrared light is used by various physicians and is even used to keep babies warm in the NICU. You should always consult your physician prior to using an Infrared sauna with any questions or concerns.
Who should not use a sauna?
Always consult with a doctor while using a pacemaker. While infrared wavelengths do not affect the mechanics of the pacemaker, heart conditions can react differently to high heat. Pregnant women should also not use an infrared sauna. The doctor will tell you everything you may need to know about your specific conditions prior to you using an infrared sauna.
Do you provide towels and water?
Yes, we provide fresh sanitized towels for each infrared sauna session. We have a water dispenser available if you would like to refill your own water bottle. We also have water and electrolyte-enhanced water available for purchase.
What can I bring in the sauna?
The choice is yours. Electronics are not affected by infrared light. You are welcome to bring a book or choose from your favorite shows and music through our built-in tablet with endless options.
Can I participate in light therapy if I’m under 18?
Yes, our saunas are for ages 15 and up. If you are under 18 you must have a parent or guardian sign a consent form.
*We kindly request ONLY guests with appointments be present during their light session – We do not allow friends or children of guests in the room during a light session. This policy helps ensure that all beem™ guests enjoy a relaxing experience!
How often can I enjoy infrared sauna sessions?
You can safely come into beem® as often as you would like (with a maximum of 1 session per day). The frequency at how often you undergo light therapy will depend on your individual goals.
How is an Infrared sauna different from traditional saunas?
An infrared sauna heats the body from the inside out, raising the body’s core temperature which allows for a much more comfortable and productive session. Traditional saunas must heat the air around you before being able to raise your body’s core temperature, therefore, making the air much hotter and less efficient than an infrared sauna.
How do you sanitize the sauna?
Keeping our saunas clean and sanitized between each use is our top priority. Did you know that infrared heat kills 99% of bacteria and germs? This means that infrared saunas are already a very sterilized environment to begin with – but on top of that, we use all non-toxic cleaners to ensure the cleanest and most healthy environment for our guests.
What if I’m late for my session or have to cancel?
CANCELLATION POLICY: If you need to cancel or reschedule your infrared or red light session, we ask for a 4-hour advance notice for a full refund. Any appointments not canceled 4 hours in advance are charged a $25 fee (per person). This includes Memberships/Packages.
LATE ARRIVAL/NO-SHOW POLICY: If you are more than 10 minutes late to your scheduled session, or a no-show, your session will be canceled, and you will be charged a $25 fee (per person). This includes Memberships/Packages.
