Our Mission


Perspire Sauna Studios strives to bring the benefits of infrared saunas to communities in a friendly, comfortable, spa-like atmosphere.

Our Vision


With a focus on excellent customer service & unique guest experience, Perspire aims to set the standard for infrared sauna studios across the country as they expand to bring IR sauna healing to every community.

Our Story


When founders Lee Braun & Ken Arsenian first fell in love with infrared sauna, they discovered a big problem - there wasn't anywhere convenient to actually use one.

The clinical confines of doctor's offices didn't so much as have a towel on hand, booking was a burden, & customer service was nowhere to be found. They knew that these sauna sessions could benefit the health of so many and should not only be made more available, but more convenient. They were inspired.

It was decided that their version of IR sauna should be what they already felt it was - a relaxing escape. So, they infused their studio concept with the luxurious touches & attention to detail of a spa. With a focus on exceptional customer service & comfort, Perspire Sauna Studio was born.

Through time & success honing & perfecting their own studios, they decided the time had come to share their carefully crafted business model. Taking the leap to open Perspire to franchising opportunities with other entrepreneurs interested in health & wellness ultimately means that more people in more communities will discover the glowing skin, rejuvenated mind & spirit, & detoxified, healthy bodies that infrared sauna provides. Will you be next?
