Geelong's home of the original Infrared SaunaPods
Enjoy the ideal SaunaPod experience at Mind Body Salt — Geelong's' home of the Infrared SaunaPod. Unlike the traditional infrared sauna alternatives, our Infrared SaunaPods are 100% private, allowing you to fully relax and take advantage of near+far infrared light therapy needed to fully detoxify your body, lose weight, and burn up to 600 calories in just a single session.
What makes SaunaPods so different?
Traditional 'enclosed' saunas only heat the air around the body, rather than the body directly. The temperatures often range from 82-104 degrees and most people cannot stand this “outside heat” for a long period of time, especially when their head is enclosed inside the sauna chamber. The intensity of breathing in the heat can cause people to become nauseous.
On the other hand, Infrared SaunaPods provide complete privacy, higher sanitation and relaxation, offering the following features while you sweat the toxins out of your body:
Both far and near infrared light therapy - providing dual-action detoxification
Non-porous interior lining to maintain cleanliness and sanitation vs traditional wood sauna cleaning challenges
Infrared Red Light technology assists in the recovery and repair of your body's cells
Luxurious, private pod lined with soft fabric with a custom sized vinyl cushioned bed
Your head remains outside the entire time, allowing you to stay cooler with open air breathing and face fans
Those who have experienced Infrared SaunaPod therapy have seen the following benefits:
immunity to common diseases
Infrared works by heating the body directly, warming us safely to create a cardiovascular workout on the body whilst removing heavy metals and toxins.
sleep & overall rest to make you feel more rejuvenated
Infrared sauna activates our parasympathetic nervous system which is in charge of making us calm before bed and set's us up for sleep. Couple this with in-pod red light colour therapy and a relaxing tea to enjoy your best night sleep in years.
stress by minimizing cortisol levels through relaxation and detox
SaunaPod works by heating the body directly, warming us safely to create a cardiovascular workout on the body whilst removing heavy metals and toxins.
energy to make you feel fresh & rejuvenated
Infrared light has been shown to promote cell autophagy, a critical process our body undergoes to ensure cells are renewed and restored or killed off. Infrared keeps our circulation up whilst resting the muscles after a workout to help clear out lactic acid and bring vital nutrients and enzymes to the muscle for repair.
body so you look and feel your best, at home or at the beach
SaunaPods get the body working...hard. During higher temperature sessions, heart rate can reach 150bpm. Sustaining this level of work requires a calorie burn and commitment! Use SaunaPod weekly and watch the transformation.

Here's how your first SaunaPod might go.
Strip yo-self off! Most clients prefer to wear a swimsuit, underwear or go nudie rudie (just remember you may want to cover sensitive areas from 75+℃ degree heat...)
Grab the TV remote and select a show you're bingeing on your private TV in your room.
Customise the intensity levels you prefer for the face fans, SaunaPod temperature & light therapy for your session. Controls are located on the outside of your pod.
Lay down on fresh towels on the pod bed. Lower the pod lid over your body whilst your head remains completely outside the unit for the session.
Your 45 minute session concludes with the heat & fans cutting out when the time reaches 0:00. Be sure to sit up slowly as heat stress whilst greatly beneficial can make you light headed.
Are there height restrictions?
Yes. The maximum height to be comfortably fit in SaunaPod is 183cm (6'1) and the width recommendation is a maximum of 63cm
What do I wear?
You are in a private room all to yourself so you can wear whatever you like but most clients will strip right down and sweat it up in either bathers or even gym/active wear. It's your call. Also, we love looking after you so fresh towels, cold water, wet wipes & deodorant (not roll-on... that would be 'eww) are all provided for you at each sweaty session xo
Can you sauna when pregnant?
No. Nope. Nada. Not happening babe.
Sauna's of any type are not suitable when pregnant.
Can you use Infrared SaunaPods when breastfeeding?
There are no known negative effects of infrared therapy on post-partum or nursing mothers in terms of scientific study. From what we know, here is what can be theorised. We have researched that for some mothers, they see a huge difference in their milk supply depending on how much water they drink. So if you did an infrared sauna session or exercised and sweated out a lot of water, but didn’t compensate by drinking enough to replenish yourself, a mother sensitive to hydration could experience a dip in supply. If you use infrared, you must make sure to drink enough water. The only other issue I can think of would be mothers with heavy metals issues. See more details here >
What if I’m Claustrophobic?
SaunaPod capsules are small however there is a large lid that closes over your body. Opening and closing the lid is very simple and the lid is light. Your head remains outside the unit during sessions and you may stop at any time.
How many can I do in a day?
Our policy is that our clients only complete one session per day.
