Nimbus & Co. Turns Up the Heat with Sydney’s First Exclusive Infrared Sauna
Just in time for winter, Nimbus & Co. has officially launched its first infrared and wellness studio at iconic Bondi Beach, providing Sydney-siders with a space to restore, revive and relax.
Unlike traditional saunas, the infrared saunas at Nimbus & Co. have infrared heating panels that penetrate your skin at a cellular level, using dry heat to remove up to 20% of toxins in your body. Compared to traditional saunas that heat the air around you and remove only 3% of your body’s toxins. Infrared saunas are proven to be more effective and comfortable.
Loved internationally by celebrities including Oprah Winfrey, Gwyneth Paltrow and Taylor Swift. Infrared saunas boast health, fitness and beauty benefits including detoxification, weight loss, improved skin health, anti-ageing, muscle fatigue and recovery.
Founded by qualified nutritionist Su Tuttle and partner Neil O’Sullivan, marketing and communication expert and mental health advocate. The wellness studio equipped with four state-of-the-art infrared saunas and has a full-time acupuncturist in-house.
“Nimbus & Co. was born out of our mutual desire to create a beautiful space and a wellness community where clients could feel at home. We encourage them to disconnect and embrace the session as a mindful, meditation experience. As a nutritionist, I see health trends come and go all the time. But we believe infrared saunas are making a positive impact and are here to stay,” said co-founder Su Tuttle.
“After noticing a gap in the Australian market for infrared saunas, we created Nimbus & Co. to disrupt the health industry with a unique offering that we knew people would love. We’ve been blown away by how quickly locals have embraced our infrared saunas. We’re excited to expand our brand further into the Sydney market later this year.” added co-founder Neil O’Sullivan.
Along with running Nimbus & Co., the Bondi locals and wellpreneurs are on a wider mission to help spread a positive physical and mental health message inspiring others to live the best lives they can. Neil and Su want to create a safe, rejuvenating space that allows others to dive deeper into their own health journey.
Each of the infrared saunas is fitted out with Pandora’s music system and Netflix, providing entertainment while you sweat. Nimbus & Co. offer a Single Sweat Session for $45, an Introductory Pack of 3 x 45 minute infrared sauna sessions for $99, a 5 x Sweat Package for $195, a 10 x Sweat Package for $380 or a 20 x Sweat Package for $740.
WHAT IS AN INFRARED SAUNA
A traditional sauna uses convection and conduction to heat the surface of your skin. Infrared saunas however use infrared heating panels that emit light helping your body detoxify, giving users a deeper cleansing experience. The infrared light can’t be seen by the naked eye. But it gives off what’s called radiated head, penetrating deep within your tissues, muscles and cells.
Infrared lighting is very different to that of a solarium, tanning bed or any other UV rays that heat our bodies from the outside in. ‘Far’ infrared lighting heats the body from the inside first, which doesn’t cause any damage to the surface of the skin.
Unlike traditional saunas, the air in an infrared sauna is a lot drier making it easier to breathe. This form of slow heating makes infrared saunas a much more comfortable experience than a traditional one.
BENEFITS OF REGULAR SWEATING
A number of studies have shown that you can burn up to 700 calories per session. As your body attempts to cool itself down, it also increases your heart and metabolic rate making you burn more calories.
‘Far’ Infrared heat has been shown to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in your skin. Sweating improves blood circulation as well as skin elasticity, tone, texture and firmness. It also helps unblock pores and reduce blemishes. A weekly infrared sauna session will leave you glowing and the more you sweat the better you’ll feel.
The benefits of using infrared saunas are extremely well known amongst individuals suffering from chronic illnesses. Infrared sauna use is effective for those suffering from Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Lyme Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis. If you are battling any of the above conditions, we recommend you consult your physician before using an infrared sauna.
You need to be kind to your skin, after all, you will be living in it for your entire life. Regular sweating allows your body to detoxify nasty chemicals, pollutants and dirt lodged within the dermal layer. Studies have shown that the average person is exposed to 700,000 toxins a day, scary right? Infrared heat increases the blood flow and brings essential nutrients to the surface of the skin. Allowing your body to naturally glow. Regular infrared sauna sessions have also been shown to improve skin conditions such as cellulite, acne, psoriasis and dermatitis. Get glowing people!
When you use a sauna it increases the core temperature of your body. Bacteria and viruses can’t survive under certain temperatures and this increased heating helps your body fight these off, giving your immune system that added boost.
If your suffering with pains and aches, an infrared sauna is a great way for you to deal with these. By increasing your core temperature, infrared saunas help blood circulation in your system, which supports blood flow in these trigger areas.
STRESS REDUCTION AND SLEEPING
One of the biggest benefits to an infrared sauna is relaxation and the chance to de-stress. People today live busy lives and we are now under more daily stress than ever before. An infrared sauna session can help you unwind but it also decreases the production of cortisol, the main hormone for stress in the body. If you’ve had a rough day there’s no better place to be than an infrared sauna, plus it will help you sleep a little better.
Nimbus & Co is a friendly place where people can come connect, relax and unwind. Not just a place with infrared saunas but providing a space where people can come and dedicate some ‘me time” to their body and mind.
Wellthy team trialled the saunas and loved it! So much more bearable than a regular sauna. And we loved the private rooms that you can book as an individual or for 2 people for just an extra $15. 2 rooms have included showers and 2 don’t – you can choose when you make your appointment.
We also loved the ‘distractions’ – music by Spotify and its even dry enough to read a book – so time passes quickly.
Afterwards we felt invigorated and slept really well.
