St. Pierre Massage and Spa: Reprogramming, Maintenance and Detoxification

Customers can forget what they know about steam saunas and reprogram with an infrared sauna in Napa Valley. Traditional saunas require pouring water over heated rocks to create steam. The average heat of a room typically ranges from 185º to 190º F, making it a hot and humid experience. Infrared saunas at St. Pierre Massage and Spa are dry saunas with heaters operating between 110º – 150º F, offering a more comfortable temperature to sweat in while still receiving the great benefits of heat.

Both traditional steam saunas and infrared saunas produce perspiration. However, traditional saunas must be heated 30 to 40 minutes prior to using in order to get the rocks hot, so sweating starts upon entering. On the other hand, an infrared sauna penetrates the skin and heats the body directly while not losing heat in the surrounding air. This means a user can enter an infrared sauna as it’s turned on, though most people prefer to let it heat until it reaches 110º F. Traditional saunas can be turned off once the rocks are hot enough, but because the infrared rays are produced by the heaters, the infrared sauna stays on for the duration of the session.

What the Experts Say

Dr. Oz says his in-laws introduced him to the infrared sauna. “It makes the same rays that come from the sun and filters out the UV radiation, so it only gives you the infrared radiation,” he says. “That radiation that’s infrared goes a little bit into your skin so, without heating you up and the external environment too much, it heats the body up.”

After a few minutes in the sauna, Oprah says she’s starting to feel the heat. Dr. Oz says, “The high temperature helps lower blood pressure and increase blood circulation. It gets your heart to beat faster, and it burns calories. It raises your metabolism a little bit, and also when you sweat, you sweat out toxins through the skin.” (Source:

Harvest Time

Napa’s most wonderful time of the year might be considered the most stressful time of the year for winemakers. Harvest is hard work. People are exhausted, wet, cold, often hungover, not well nourished and anxious. Plenty of physical labor and mental strife goes into that bottle of wine someone had with dinner last night. What’s a winemaker and wine industry worker to do? The staff at St. Pierre Massage and Spa encourages wine industry workers to take some time for themselves. Now is the time to embrace wellness. Drink plenty of water. Eat healthy or at least healthy snacks. Meditate. Get plenty of rest. Stretch.

Get a massage; no appointment necessary; walk-ins are welcome. A massage helps to soothe aching muscles, alleviate low back pain and improve range of motion. Massage invites relaxation. The body feels more energized and the quality of sleep improves. While a massage can be pampering, the experts like to think of massage as maintenance…maintenance for a healthier you.

Massage Benefits Detoxification

Massage therapy helps stimulate the lymphatic and circulatory systems for more efficient detoxification. Massage therapy can help stimulate circulation and tone organs in order to promote detoxification.

Sedentary lifestyles also slow circulatory systems. When circulation is operating at its optimal level, oxygenated blood nourishes the internal organs more effectively, which enables a more efficient detoxification process.

The heart is vital to cardiovascular circulatory system function, helping to pump oxygenated blood around the body to nourish cells and organs and eliminate waste. The lymphatic system is reliant on muscle contraction, gravity, breathing and manual manipulation–such as lymphatic drainage, hydrotherapy and massage for circulatory stimulation. Compressing body tissues help squeeze blood and lymph through vessels to facilitate chemical detoxification. The methodical and rhythmic long, sweeping strokes characteristic of Swedish massage activates superficial veins pushing fluids toward the heart to prevent stagnation, boost circulation and enhance detoxification.
