Infrared Sauna

About Infrared Sauna . . .

“Infrared wavelengths penetrate the body to create heat, which creates profound therapeutic benefits. They increase blood flow to the muscles, delivering more concentrated oxygen, which creates more energy to heal.”
-Dr. Jeffrey Spencer – University of Southern California

Benefits are . . .

Our sauna will offer full spectrum (near, mid and far infrared) technology, customization to safely and effectively target your health needs.  Infrared Saunas were recently featured on  Dr. Oz who discussed how infrared saunas are beneficial to health and longevity and listed them among the top high tech ways to extend your life.

Near infrared light (the wavelengths closest to visible light) is best for chronic pain management and skin purification.

Mid-infrared light is best to assist in weight loss and improved circulation.

Far infrared light reduces blood pressure and is whole-body detoxifying.

Detoxification . . .

“Far”-Infrared Sauna is great for uses of meditation and detoxification. Detoxing optimizes the efficiency of the immune system.  Sweating is one of the body’s natural ways to remove toxins in the body, skin and liver. Detox helps avoid disease, prevent illness and improve general health and vitality. FIS heats the body from the core, allowing you to sweat up to 7 times more than traditional saunas.

Healthier Skin . . .

FIS helps with acne by purifying the skin and cleansing the pores thus ridding accumulated dirt, cosmetics, blackheads and dry skin cells.  Less toxins in the skin means healthier skin with improvements in skin complexion, tone, texture, elasticity and overall appearance. 

Weight Loss . . .

A weight loss benefit can be seen with FIS.  Studies show that just 30 minutes can burn upwards of 600 calories!  When using FIS core body temperature increases and the body works hard to cool it down which then causes an increase in heart rate, metabolic rate and cardiac output allowing you to burn calories while you relax. 

Cardiac Improvement . . .

Cardiac improvement can be seen in congestive heart failure, and improved circulation benefits individuals with high blood pressure, sciatica, hemorrhoids, and varicose veins. 

Traditional sauna uses heat and humidity to warm the air, which in turn warms your body.  There are increasingly more controlled studies being completed utilizing “Far”-infrared sauna (FIS).  FIS uses light to create heat and only heats 20% of the air, leaving 80% of the heat available to heat the body.  This in turn warms the body more efficiently at lower temperatures with warm and dry heat, making FIS more accessible to people who cannot tolerate the excessive heat and humidity seen in traditional sauna.  By breathing cooler air, many users of FIS report a feeling of warmth and well-being as an after effect.   The appeal of saunas is that they cause reactions, such as vigorous sweating and increased heart rate, similar to those experienced during moderate exercise.  FIS may induce up to 2 to 3 times the volume of sweat produced in a traditional sauna while operating at significantly cooler temperatures. 

Many medical journals tout the benefits of sauna.  In an article published in 1981 in JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association), the authors found that “regular use of sauna may impact a similar stress on the cardiovascular system, and its regular use may be as effective, as a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories, as regular exercise.”  In 1982, JAMA authors noted, “A moderately conditioned person can easily sweat off 500 grams in a sauna, consuming nearly 300 kcal, which is equivalent to running 2-3 miles.  A heat-conditioned person can easily sweat off 600-800 kcal with no adverse effects.  While the weight of the water loss can be regained by drinking water, the calories consumed will not be.”

FIS works by deeply penetrating joints, muscle and tissues, which increase circulation and speeds oxygen flow.  Many physicians recommend FIS for Pain Relief and to athletes for sports injuries, fibromyalgia, and other chronic pain syndromes.

FIS can help you maintain healthy levels of your stress hormones, like cortisol, thus leading to relaxation, better sleep and an overall feeling of being refreshed and rejuvenated.
