A Far Infrared Sauna uses special heaters installed in a wooden sauna to generate infrared rays (the invisible part of the natural electromagnetic light spectrum) to deeply penetrate the skin and stimulate whole body cellular detoxification.
Infrared heat therapy heats the body directly rather than only the surrounding air. Infrared saunas increase the body’s core temperature resulting in a deeper, more detoxifying sweat from the cellular level of the skin where toxins are located. Soothing, dry infrared heat is used to directly penetrate the body’s tissues to a depth of over 1 ½ inches right into the muscle.

A 30 minute infrared sauna session can burn up to 600 calories! The therapy assists in the loss of toxins and stored fats by up to six times the level of a traditional sauna or exercise alone can achieve. As the body works to cool itself while using an infrared sauna, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. Infrared heat therapy raises core body temperature, causing passive cardiovascular condition. Your body’s natural response to infrared heat therapy is to increase circulation and sweat.
Studies have shown that infrared sauna reduces cellulite, acne and fine wrinkles after consistent use. Regular use of infrared sauna treatments will exfoliate the skin from the inside out, soften, firm, tone and increase elasticity, cleansing pores and leaving your skin looking cleaner, healthier and more vibrant.
Since the skin is our largest organ, it plays an important role in eliminating undesirable toxins. The deep penetration of the infrared technology allows removal of toxins stored in fat cells. The detoxification process is 7-10 times greater than a conventional sauna. In a conventional sauna, the average person sweats out 3% toxins and 97% water. In a far – infrared sauna, the average person sweats out 20% toxins and 80% water!
When you sweat more, your heart works harder to pump blood. An easy 30 minute session is equivalent to walking or jogging for 5 – 10 miles and without any impact on the joints. Repeated infrared therapy improves blood vessel function of those with high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol.
Heating of the muscles with infrared produces an increased blood flow level similar to that seen during exercise. Body temperature elevation also produces an increase in blood flow.
REDUCTION OF CELLULITE
The radiant heat of our saunas penetrates three times as deeply as conventional saunas and is significantly more effective at breaking down hard to move cellulite.
Remarkable therapeutic benefits have been observed by using continuous infrared heat therapy for treating various conditions of pain. Due to the infrared’s deeply penetrating heat, health professionals have used infrared lamps for many decades to treat muscle and joint problems. The far infrared sauna’s design and patented infrared technology ensures an increased flow of oxygen rich blood to painful areas helps to flush away toxins and ease the pain. Medical research has found success in using infrared saunas for the following pain conditions:
- tight shoulders
- muscle tension
- shoulder pain
- muscle spasms
- low back pain
- post-exercise muscle pain
- arthritis: gouty, rheumatoid, traumatic
- joint stiffness
- sprains and strains
- tension headaches
STRESS RELIEF & RELAXATION
Wrap yourself in the warmth of the rays and feel the stresses of the day melt away in your private solitude. Increased circulation triggers the release of endorphins, loosening tight muscles and takes you to another level of relaxation.
