To our knowledge, Circa 1894 Day Spa is the only facility in the area providing a NIR and FAR Infra-red Sauna experience.
Nestled in the lower level of the three decks, enjoy our outdoor authentic, Amish built, Finnish Sauna (currently, due to covid, available on request only to Spa Suite B&B guests only). With the Finnish Sauna, along with the outdoor (in season) shower, you can experience Thermo-therapy, which consists of hot/cold/relax/repeat/repeat. Each level has ample seating for relaxation. In season, you might also wish to enjoy the fireplace with its beautiful oak mantel, which speaks of yesteryear. The FAR and NIR Infra-red saunas are indoors and available only to Spa Suite B&B Guests on request.

Pictured is Saunatec's CarbonFlex cedar corner Sauna (accessible to our Spa SuiteB&B Guests only, on request) with "a 'near-perfect' wavelength of 8.4 to 9.4 microns (well within the human body's Vital Range of 7 to 14 microns)." This optimal wavelength provides for deeper penetration of FAR Infra-red heat, which goes 1 1/2 to 2" deep to help release toxins, including heavy metals and environmental chemicals; enhance detoxification; increase cardiovascular conditioning and provide relief from muscle and joint aches and pains.

Our SaunaRay sauna (pictured above and accessible to Spa Suite B&B guests only,on request) has being overhauled, to add NIR (NEAR) Infra-red sessions to our offerings. It is built with basswood for clients with a sensitivity to cedar and is used worldwide by medical doctors, naturopathic doctors, dentists, chiropactors and massage therapists. As well, firefighters and hockey teams use SaunaRay. Intentionally made toxin free, "SaunaRay is a true medical sauna. It has helped some of my patients get over long term chronic pain where other methods have not worked." Quote fromDr. Zoltan Rona, MD, Medical Editor of The Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine.
