HotBox Infrared Sauna Studio Offers Stress Relief, Detoxification and More

DTLA - HotBox Infrared Sauna Studio started as the dream of entrepreneur Jessica Mortarotti (known for Carmela Ice Cream) and in one year has turned into one of DTLA’s hottest spots.

“We’ve been thrilled to see so many people enjoying HotBox’s infrared sauna experience which provides stress relief, detoxification, glowing skin, and can even burn hundreds of calories per session,” says Mortarotti.

Guests select a mood-enhancing chromotherapy color to bathe in while enjoying a private suite. The gentle infrared heat comfortably relaxes every muscle.

“HotBox’s infrared saunas make you feel incredibly happy, relaxed, and recharged, and with the numerous health benefits they provide, we’ve developed quite a loyal following of ‘Glow Getters’ who come in regularly,” says Mortarotti.

Complementing the experience, guests cool off with a chilled essential oil washcloth, and leave fully refreshed after a vitamin-C filtered rain shower.

HotBox offers new customers their first session for $35, with packages and memberships available. Currently, $25 weekday happy hour sessions are available from 12 to 2 p.m.

HotBox is at 835 S. Hill St. and is open every day 10 a.m.-10 p.m., and earlier on Tuesday and Thursday from 7 a.m.-10 p.m. To book a session, email, visit or call (213) 628-3221.
