Infrared is an invisible form of energy that is accepted by the body as heat. It is that deep inner warmth feeling when standing in the sun. Our visible spectrum goes from red up through violet, the colors of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. Infra-red means “below red” just like ultraviolet (UV) means “above violet”. A FAR infrared sauna uses the far part of the spectrum. These two parts of the spectrum, are both invisible, yet they still have a very different effect on the body. Ultraviolet (UV) light has been associated with many health risks such as laying in the sun too much or excess exposure to tanning salons. Infrared light is the exact opposite end of the light spectrum and is associated with many positive and healthful benefits. It is completely safe and healthy for all living things and one can be exposed to infrared light for hours without the risk of burning. In fact, infrared is so safe, it is what is used in hospitals to warm infant babies.
While in our saunas, infrared light can penetrate human tissue up to 2 inches and is therapeutic because of its ability to be absorbed by our body and safely raise our core body temperature. In fact, your core body raises over 3 degrees (to over 102 degrees) after a 40 minutes session. This self-induced “fever” results in a healthy, deep detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where the majority of toxins reside. Fevers are the body’s ultimate way of defense.
There is a saying:
Give your body a good fever, and there is no disease that can survive
Skin is the largest organ in the human body and sweating, the body’s internal cooling system, is the most natural and effective way to detoxify. In addition, infrared sauna therapy promotes excellent cardiovascular conditioning and weight loss. This is achieved by increasing your heart rate by 50-75% while in our saunas which, in turn, burns real calories.
In the last 35 years, extensive research has been conducted by Japanese and European doctors on the therapeutic benefits of infrared radiant heat. In addition, methods to induce fevers and sweating have been used for centuries to bring improved health and relief from disease.
Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal and stay healthy and our saunas are designed for the deepest, most detoxifying sweat. The United States Center for Disease Control estimates that the root causes of more than 80% of all illnesses are found in personal environments or lifestyles. In other words, the world around you can make you sick; it’s in the air we breathe and in the food we eat. There’s very little we can do to reduce exposure, but we can use sauna detoxification as an effective treatment. Rid your body of toxins today!
You can lose real weight while relaxing in the comfort of our infrared saunas. Just one 40-minute infrared sauna session can burn up to 600 calories! How? As the body works hard to cool itself and regulate core temperature, it expends a lot of energy, in turn, burning all those calories. Plus, body fat becomes water soluble at 110°F, resulting in the release of fat molecules through the body’s pores. Shrink your waistline without exercising, the only natural and healthy way – an infrared sauna session.
One of the most compelling reasons to use an infrared sauna is for natural pain relief. Infrared wavelengths provide deep penetrating heat therapy to joints, muscles and tissues by increasing blood circulation and speeding oxygen flow to areas of discomfort. In addition, it breaks up and reduces lactic acid deposits, accelerating connective tissue repair and allowing tight and worn-out muscles to relax. Doctors often recommend infrared heat therapy to patients with arthritis, fibromyalgia and other chronic pain conditions; it is also widely used among athletes for relief from sports injuries.
Relaxation is more important to health than most people realize, and our private sauna studio suites have been designed to encourage relaxation and comfort. An estimated 75%-90% of primary care appointments are for stress-related problems. Unfortunately, the more stressed you are, the more cortisol your body produces; cortisol raises heart rate and blood pressure and leads to the deposit of excess calories in the midsection. Scientific evidence shows that infrared sauna therapy helps the body maintain healthy levels of cortisol.
Regular use of an infrared sauna can improve cardiovascular health by lowering both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Infrared heat neutralizes blood toxicity and smooths the artery walls, capillaries and veins, lessening the chance for blood clots to form. Maintain your heart health and schedule an infrared sauna session today.
Infrared heat provides natural preventative properties, keeping you healthy. Heat charges the immune system by promoting blood flow/oxygenation and increasing lymphatic drainage, slowing the multiplication of viruses and bacteria in the body and aiding in illness and infection prevention. Infrared heat can also stimulate while blood cell production and collagen growth by increasing energy at the cellular level.
The removal of toxins through perspiration is a key component to achieving healthy, radiant skin, as sweating carries off deeply imbedded impurities and dead skin cells to leave the skin glowing and immaculately clean. Many infrared sauna users have reported a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles as well as improved skin tone and tightening/elasticity. Infrared may also help burns and incisions heal faster as well as reduce visible scars.
Psoriasis and many other skin disorders actually originate in the liver. When toxins are ingested, the liver does not have the ability to break down, metabolize and excrete the toxins. Instead, the toxins are sent to the skin for elimination via sweat. By sweating regularly with the use of an infrared sauna, the toxins are eliminated via the sweat and sebaceous glands as opposed to through the shedding of skin. Try a natural alternative to traditional treatment for skin conditions.
Cellulite is known for its dimpled appearance and is caused by connective tissue not doing its job, excess fat and bloat. Infrared heat penetrates deep into the fatty, subcutaneous layer (the place where cellulite begins), and three times deeper than conventional saunas! It also increases your caloric burn and heart rate and localized blood circulation, eliminating the accumulation of liquids in fat cells to directly impact the appearance and recurrence of cellulite.
