Infrared Sauna

Health Benefits

Reduces Risk of Heart Disease and Stroke:

It’s widely known how sauna use increases blood circulation and the heart rate.  An international study¹ out of Finland shows how frequent sauna use is associated with a reduced risk for heart disease and stroke.  It revealed a direct link between increased sauna use and lowering the risk of stroke by up to 61% for those going 4-7 times per week.

Enhancing Immune System: 

This therapy stimulates energy at a cellular level, increasing production of white blood cells. Additionally, infrared saunas increase the production of vitamin D as if you’re in the direct sunshine.  With the increased temperature, a fever response is simulated, which causes your bone marrow and thymus to create more T & B white blood cells.  

Detoxification:

Toxins are stored in fat cells and are released during sauna sessions throughout sweating.  This process helps to detoxify the body and support the lymphatic system.  We recommend using the Lymph Vibe machine for 10-15 minutes before using the sauna to help stimulate the excretion process. 

Health Skin and Glow

IR Therapy provides all the benefits of the sun, without the harmful UV rays that can damage your skin and cause cancer.  Direct exposure to IR leaves your skin looking radiant with a healthy glow due to the detoxification process, and how the light promotes the healing of healthy tissue.

Efficacy For Cancer

When near infrared light is applied, cancer cells swell and burst, causing cancer cells to die. It is currently being applied for clinical trials on patients with inoperable tumors.²
