Infrared Sauna

Just 30 to 60 minutes in the Infrared Sauna can help your health and well being in a variety of ways: 

Reduced Stress and Fatigue

It’s a fact that infrared sauna heat therapy loosens muscles and relaxes the body. Massage therapists and chiropractors often use heat to provide effective treatments. Perhaps the most immediate relief your infrared sauna offers is simple relaxation, as it melts away the stress and tension of urban life. Just a few minutes in the gentle warmth of your infrared sauna gives you an overall massaging effect, soothing jangled nerves and knotted muscles. You’ll feel rejuvenated and renewed, restored in both body and mind.

Relieves Pain 

The deep heat of the infrared sauna rays, helps peripheral blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries. Increased blood supply to oxygen-depleted tissues helps reduce pain and speeds up the healing process. Muscles relax more readily, when tissues are warm, for greater flexibility and range of motion

Eases Joint Pain and Stiffness

In Europe radiant heat therapy is widely used to treat patients suffering from many forms of arthritis. In addition, it has been proven effective in the treatment of sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms, joint stiffness and many other muscular-skeletal ailments. Much of the stiffness, aches and soreness that comes with aging, is reduced or eliminated.

Removes Toxins and Mineral Waste

The body eliminates most stored toxins naturally by sweating. Increased blood circulation stimulates the sweat glands, releasing built up toxins and waste. Daily sweating can help detoxify your body, as it rids itself of an accumulation of potentially carcinogenic heavy metals like lead, mercury, zinc, nickel and cadmium, as well as removing alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid and cholesterol. Heat therapy speeds up the body’s natural ability to remove toxins for improved overall health. 

Clears Cellulite

The infrared sauna rays help clear ugly cellulite, the gel-like lumps of fat, water and debris trapped in the pockets beneath the skin. Because the infrared heat of the saunas warms three times deeper than conventional saunas and fat becomes soluble at 110 degrees Fahrenheit, beauty specialists routinely incorporate daily saunas in programs to reduce cellulite.

Improves Skin

Excessive sweating achieved after just a few minutes in the infrared sauna carries off deeply embedded impurities, expels dirt and chemicals and releases dead skin cells on the body’s surface, leaving the skin glowing, softer and immaculately clean. Increased circulation draws your skin’s own natural nutrients to the surface. You’ll see improved tone, elasticity, texture and fresh color. Increased blood circulation has also been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, lesions and cuts. In addition, wounds heal more quickly, reducing scarring.

Improves the Immune System

The infrared saunas deep heat raises your core body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. Fever is the body’s natural response to attacking viruses, bacteria and other unwanted foreign bodies. As the immune system is activated each time you take a sauna, this process wards off invading organisms on a continuous basis. This works to combat the bacteria and your body’s immune system is naturally strengthened. Combined with the elimination of toxins and wastes, your overall health and resistance to disease is increased.

What is Far Infrared Therapy?

Far Infrared Rays are invisible waves of energy that have the ability to penetrate all layers of the human physical body, penetrating into the inner-most regions of the tissues, muscles and bone.

An ancient technique, Far Infrared Therapy uses these waves, or rays, of energy to slightly elevate the surface temperature of the body. When we slightly induce a very small temperature increase, we can enhance our body’s functioning on multiple levels. Our hands, bodies and the sun emit FIR energy at all times.
