Infrared saunas use FAR infrared heat. Using this invisible band of light that is produced by the sun, objects are warmed without warming the air.
A great example of how this works:
Imagine it is a chilly but sunny winter day. You’re bundled up and you can feel the air around you is cold, but when you stand directly in the sun, you can feel the warmth. The sun is able to warm you without warming the air around you. This is FAR Infrared Light at work. As a matter of fact, over 80% of the sun’s rays are infrared.
Infrared saunas mimic the same infrared frequencies emitted by the sun and the tissues in the human body absorb these waves. This process is called "resonant absorption", and it occurs when the frequency of the water in the body cells match the frequency of the infrared waves. When this occurs, toxins are released into the blood stream and are excreted from the body. Since the body is absorbing the heat and not the air, the body quickly begins to perspire and release the toxins.
With benefits that go beyond simple detoxification, infrared saunas are an efficient and relaxing method that creates a more stable body and circulatory system; it aids in weight loss, reduces pain, and reduces stress.
Is It Safe?
Yes! Panels that produce similar infrared rays are used in hospitals to warm newborn babies. NASA also uses infrared heat to keep their astronauts warm. Infrared energy has nothing to do with either ultraviolet radiation (which gives you a sunburn & damages your skin) or atomic radiation (the kind in a nuclear bomb).
If you are interested in boosting your body’s natural healing processes, aiding your body in releasing its toxins, easing tension and remedying arthritis, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue, or burn calories without moving a muscle – then infrared sauna therapy may be right for you!
Infrared saunas are different than conventional saunas:
Infrared saunas warm you to a much greater depth and much more efficiently than a conventional sauna. Energy output from infrared saunas is primarily used to convert energy directly to heat in our bodies and not create excessively hot air that then only heats the skin superficially like in a conventional sauna.
Detoxification, Weight Loss, Pain Relief, Blood Pressure Reduction, Improved Circulation, Stress Reliever,
Skin Purification, Muscle Recovery and Immune Health
Performance-care/Cellular Health Protocol
Sauna should be used 3 times per week for 6 weeks (18 sessions)
This is the recovery and performance enhancing protocol to aid those who are attempting to increase their metabolism, strength, post-workout recovery, energy levels, and muscular endurance.
Sauna should be used 2 times per week for 4 weeks (8 sessions)
Clinical research shows infrared sauna therapy to provide a reduction in systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Both are key factors in maintaining a healthy heart. In a 2005 clinical study by the University of Missouri Kansas City, blood pressure was lowered through a program of infrared sauna sessions. The study concluded that infrared sauna therapy dilated blood vessels and reduced the volume of their inner lining, thus increasing circulation to promote healthy blood pressure.
Weight Loss Protocol
Sauna should be used 3 times per week for 10 weeks (30 sessions)
It is no secret that maintaining a healthy weight is beneficial to your health. According to information published in the Journal of the American Medical Association – infrared sauna weight loss sessions were shown to burn up to 600 calories. During a sauna weight loss session, core temperatures increase. The body must work hard to cool itself, causing a healthy sweat. Using an infrared sauna increases heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, burning more calories and leading to more weight loss.
Pain and Inflammation Protocol
Sauna should be used 2 times per week for 6 weeks (12 sessions)
For years, doctors have recommended infrared saunas because of proven relief from sports injury, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, arthritis and other chronic pain conditions. Infrared sauna therapy provides a deep penetrating heat that helps reduce pain and promotes circulation to areas of discomfort. It also may help reduce and prevent the formation of scar tissue and myofascial adhesions.
Full spectrum infrared sauna heat works by penetrating joints, muscles and tissues. It increases circulation and speeds up oxygen flow; by reducing soreness on nerve endings, infrared heat reduces muscles spasms and helps the body heal itself naturally.
Sauna should be used 2 times per week
Researchers have long told us how the body sweats out toxic substances, including heavy metals. As long as you maintain proper hydration, the more you sweat, the more toxins you’ll rid from your body. One of the safest ways to sweat out toxins is by using an infrared sauna. In the sauna, your body sweats out toxins through your pores. The buildup of toxic substances can lead to many common illnesses. Ridding the body of theses toxins through a natural sauna detox will improve immunity, help relieve symptoms, prevent future illness and increase overall health and vitality.
Skin Rejuvenation Protocol
Sauna should be used 2 times per week for 12 weeks (36 sessions)
Infrared sauna therapy helps restore the skin to a youthful appearance. A study by the Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy showed significant improvements in skin appearance after just 6 weeks of infrared sauna therapy. Participants noticed a reduction in wrinkles and crow’s feet as well as improved overall skin tone including softness, smoothness, elasticity, clarity and firmness.
Infrared Sauna Etiquette
Sessions are scheduled in 45-minute windows. Please arrive early for your session; this will allow you adequate time to set yourself up comfortably and hydrate prior to your session. We also recommend taking time after your session to dry off and re-hydrate.
(It is recommended to shower soon after your sauna session is over; this will help eliminate the toxins brought out during the session from your body.)
What to Wear
Clean towels are provided for every client. During the session, you can keep yourself wrapped in the towels provided, or wear a bathing suit or your undergarments. Loose, comfortable clothing is recommended for after your session.
