Each light can be changed individually if you are sharing the sauna. You will be given a colour coding chart on arrival.
How does an Infrared sauna work?
An Infrared sauna differs to a regular sauna and is generally better tolerated. The heat is emitted from panels on the walls and floor, these panels emit waves of infrared which work deeply into your muscles and cells creating a detoxifying effect, unlike a regular sauna which works by creating heat around you.
