The brand’s advanced sauna technology, along with its medical grade and high intensity red light therapy bar, are what set them apart in the industry. The experience has demonstrated the ability to improve sleep, boost immunity, burn calories, reduce inflammation, and simply offer a space for people to allow their minds and bodies to feel better.

With its simple, yet effective business model that includes low costs, minimal labor and pandemic proof services, Perspire is actively seeking new franchisees in the following states: California, Florida, Texas, Washington, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan.
