Infrared light, which is not visible to the human eye, raises the body temperature and stimulates the breakdown of fat cells. Many environmental toxins are locked away in our fatty tissue making it difficult for our bodies to eliminate them. Infrared Sauna Therapy promotes the release of toxins and improves circulation in the body.
Sessions are 1 hour in length and involve the contrast of heat from the sauna, and a cold rinse in the shower every 15 minutes. This process stimulates the lymphatic system and enhances the process. Our sauna is a SaunaRay, one of the best in the industry, local, handmade and chemical free. We provide towels, soap, shampoo, conditioner, hairdryer and water.
Benefits of the Infrared Sauna Therapy can include:
- Breakdown of fat tissue
Help control weight by burning as many calories in one session, as you would rowing or jogging for 30 minutes!
- Strengthening of the immune system
Large amounts of oxygen rich blood circulating through the body will help to repair injured muscles faster and will improve the body's immune system.
- Improved cardiovascular function
- Enhanced circulation
Skin tone and elasticity are improved with increased blood circulation and deep cleansing.
- Detoxification of heavy metals and other toxic compounds found in the body
Daily sweating can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of an accumulation of highly toxic heavy metals (lead, mercury, nickel, and cadmium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid, and other organic and inorganic compounds.
- Usedas an adjunct in treatments for many medical conditions such as: Chronic pain, Fibromyalgia, ADHD, Chronic fatigue, Rheumatoid arthritis, Anxiety and depression, Weight control issues, Multiple chemical sensitivities and food allergies.
Traditional Sauna Vs. Infrared Sauna
Traditional saunas heat up to, and over, 170 degrees Fahrenheit making it uncomfortable for any prolonged length of time. Infrared saunas maintain a heat of 110-120 degrees Fahrenheit allowing you to comfortably read, relax, or listen to music while treating your body to a therapeutic session of relaxation.
Sitting in an infrared sauna helps generate two to three times the sweat of a conventional sauna; making it a great way to rid your body of built up toxins and improve your vitality.
