There's A Hot New Wellness Destination In Newport, So Make A Date With Your Fav Person
Newport’s HOT new self-care spot has reached the top of my favorite places list. The Preserve Newport is a unique and relaxing way to self-care. Infrared sauna and chromotherapy (color light therapy) technology is where science meets holistic health values. Choose the color light that calls to you, different colors inspire different effects on the body, or cycle through the colors for uplifting! Chromotherapy can help with chronic headaches and migraines and even help to rest tired eyes that stare at screens all day.
Infrared sauna gradually heats up the body from the inside. It’s like the heat wrings out your insides and detoxes from deep within the tissues. It actually takes about 10-15 minutes before you even start sweating. Temps are optimal between 125-158 ish for up to 30 minutes. This helps to increase blood flow, thus increasing oxygen to joints, muscles and tissues in the body creating the perfect recipe for healing, recovery and prevention.
Some benefits include:
Increased circulation helps the body purge by stimulating our sweat glands.
The infrared sauna helps to bring the nervous system into rest and digest known as the parasympathetic nervous system. Most of us spend so much time rushing around, ticking off our to-do lists that we almost never reach this state. Hello, gut imbalances and poor digestion! Because the infrared sauna helps to relax us, it also helps to bring cortisol (our body’s main stress hormone) into balance and stimulates those “feel great” vibes.

I love my weekly sweat sessions here. Sit in the sauna for 30 minutes. Bring a book and relax or listen to music, each sauna is Bluetooth enabled. Add a cold coconut water and a cold towel after your session. Use house blended essential oil sprays on the cold towel for a refreshing treat!
You’ll leave here with more energy, less tension and feeling amazing and relaxed over all!
