Stress Relief (relaxation & rejuvenation)
Improved Immunity
Reduced Healing Time
Fight Cancer
Fibromyalgia Treatment

Detoxification: Thousands of environmental toxins saturate every aspect of our living environment. These toxins are unavoidable and are often absorbed into our bodies. Since humans are bio-accumulators, the large quantities and numerous types of toxins accumulate in our bodies.  In time, the poison from toxins may result in immune symptom problems, such as chronic pain syndromes, multiple chemical sensitivities, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, migraines, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and cancer. So how can you best get rid of these harmful toxins? Body detoxification through sweat. The infrared heat energy deeply penetrates tissues triggering mobilization of chemicals from fat storage and directly into sweat.

Weight Loss: Fat becomes water-soluble at a temperature of 100 degrees F before it begins to dissolve and enter the bloodstream to be removed from the body. The infrared heat will increase the peripheral blood flow and remove fat through sweat. A single therapeutic sauna session will burn as much as 300-600 calories. Another problematic and difficult-to-get-rid of waste is cellulite – a gel-like substance made up of fat, water and wastes that are trapped in pockets below the skin. The infrared heat can assist this condition, as profuse sweating helps clear this form of unwanted debris from the body.

Cardiovascular Health:  Medical studies demonstrate sauna health benefits such as lowered blood pressure, improved circulation and enhanced metabolism. An infrared sauna session is a genuine passive cardio workout – without exercise!  Repeated far infrared sauna treatment improves impaired blood vessel functions in patients with high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. This suggests a preventative role for infrared sauna use for arteriosclerosis.

Pain relief:  Real, lasting relief from nerve damage, arthritis, muscle pain, carpal tunnel, joint pain and fibromyalgia. No pills, potions or lotions required!  Infrared sauna penetrates directly to the source of your pain to heal and soothe naturally.

Skin rejuvenation: Dramatically renew elastin-collagen tissues while crow’s feet, forehead lines, wrinkles, age spots, scars, varicose veins and stretch marks naturally fade away. Look younger while you cleanse your body from the inside out.

Improved flexibility:  Studies show that tissues heated to 130 degrees and then stretched have exhibited an elastic elongation that persists long after the stretch is removed.  Infrared heat is a therapeutic haven for athletes looking for a pre-workout to warm up muscles for range of motion and increased flexibility to help prevent injury. It is also ideal for pre-warm-up for physical therapy and massage therapy or for relaxing your muscles after a long workout.

Stress relief:  Perhaps the most immediate relief you will get from basking in the sauna is simple relaxation.  As it melts away the stresses and tensions of fast-paced life, it leaves you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated!  Infrared heat will give your body an overall massaging effect – soothing jangled nerves and knotted muscles.

Immunity strength:  Increased production of white blood cells and toxin removal through sweating combines to improve immunity against chronic infections, flu, sinus, allergy symptoms, germs and bacteria.  Realize health benefits as the body produces special heat shock proteins, which are powerful immune system stimulators.

Reduced healing time:  Reduce the healing time for damaged tissues, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerve endings.  Increase blood circulation and vasodilation of blood vessels.  Speed beneficial nitric oxide and healing oxygen to the distressed areas, while removing toxins and lactic acid. Enhanced cell regeneration will give you more energy, stamina and mental clarity.

Cancer fighter: Far infrared therapy has been applied as a cancer treatment worldwide for 20 years.  Infrared saunas increase the production of white blood cells, killer T-cells, and interferon, all of which have been shown to fight cancer cell growth.

Fibromyalgia relief:  Sufferers of Fibromyalgia Syndrom (FMS) often complain that they hurt all over during a flare up.  That’s because FMS literally attacks the muscles, tendons, and fibrous tissues of the body.  While it’s precise cause is not known, many medical professionals believe that far infrared sauna use offers a promising treatment.
