Pain Relief

Unlike traditional saunas, infrared heat warms the body at the cellular level, increasing circulation.

Stress Relief

Infrared light boosts circulation and increases the production of endorphins in the body, similar to a “runner’s high”.

Quicker Recovery

Increased blood circulation generates more white blood cells for quicker muscle and injury recovery.

Improved Cardio Health

A cardiovascular workout equivalent to an hour of vigorous exercise, without the muscle fatigue or pain.

Weight Loss

Burn up to 600 calories in a single session and expel bodily toxins.

Detoxification

Get rid of toxins and chemicals stored in fat cells through excessive sweating.

Skin Purification

Increased blood circulation and the elimination of toxins lead to softer, clearer skin.

Improved Sleep

Infrared is a gentle, soothing and therapeutic heat that promotes relaxation and improved sleep.


 

Detoxification

Infrared heat increases your blood circulation and stimulates the sweat glands, releasing built up toxins in the body. Perspiration is a natural way of expelling these toxins from the body and infrared saunas generate a sweat nearly 7 times more detoxifying than a traditional or steam sauna. Detoxification via infrared sauna therapy is commonly recommended for those suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple chemical sensitivity (also known as environmental illness), and fibromyalgia.

Pain Relief and Muscle Recovery

The deep heat of an infrared sauna helps peripheral blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries. Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscle, so they recover faster. Muscles are also able to relax most readily when tissues are warm, for greater flexibility and range of motion. Infrared heat relieves muscle tension, thereby helping your body to make the most of its intended healing abilities. Infrared heat reduces soreness on nerve endings and muscle spasms as muscle joints and fibers are heated.

Cardio Health and Weight Loss

As you relax in the gentle infrared heat, your body is actually hard at work producing sweat, pumping blood, and burning calories. As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart will work harder to pump blood at a greater rate to boost circulation. This increase in your metabolism will burn calories. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, “Many of us who run do so to place a demand on our cardiovascular system, … 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.

Skin Purification

The profuse sweating achieved after just a few minutes in an infrared sauna sheds deeply embedded impurities and dead skin cells, leaving the skin glowing and immaculately clean. Increased circulation draws your skin’s own natural nutrients to the surface. You’ll see improved tone, elasticity, texture and fresh color. Increased blood circulation has also been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, lesions and cuts. In addition, open wounds heal more quickly, reducing scarring.

Relaxation and Improved Sleep

Saunas also increase serotonin, a powerful hormone associated with relaxation and sleep. Following a sauna, people show more brain waves related to deeper, more restful sleep.
