Burn Calories and Improve Health

Similar to exercise, infrared sauna therapy is a safe and effective way to improve circulation, and can be especially beneficial for patients with diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. Infrared heat increases heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, similar to the effects of exercise.

According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, “Many of us who run do so to place a demand on our cardiovascular system, not to build big leg muscles. Regular use of a sauna imparts a similar stress on the cardiovascular system, and its regular use may be as effective a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories as regular exercise.”

Increased peripheral circulation helps reduce inflammation, decrease pain and speed healing. Blood flow has been reported to rise to as much as 13 quarts per minute. Infrared is also beneficial for those with hypertension and supports athletic performance, recovery and injury healing.

Is It Safe?

Infrared light (experienced as heat) is the invisible part of the sun's spectrum with the ability to penetrate human tissue, giving a soothing, natural warmth. It is completely safe and healthy. While it is a naturally occurring output of the sun, it does not contain the harmful UV rays.

What To Expect

Treatments are usually 30-45 minutes, and most people go 3-4 times a week. After three sessions, your stress levels are lowered and you've relaxed physically and mentally. After 4-8 sessions, your body is more efficient at raising the core temperature and you're burning more calories in each session. Surface toxins are eliminated through sweat and you'll start to feel the effects.

After 9-16 sessions, the real magic begins. Your body is fully accustomed and complete cellular detoxification is underway, reducing harmful heavy metals. You'll notice a significant decrease in aches, pains, and stiffness, improved circulation, and glowing skin.

After 17+ sessions, you are experiencing the rewards of your new lifestyle change. Your energy levels are improved, and you'll sleep better at night. Your immune system is stronger, your cardiovascular health has improved, and your body's overall wellbeing has increased.
