The far Infrared sauna is not what you think “sauna” is going to do for you. I came in for help with intestinal health issues, but also my sprained ankle got better in the sauna . It was like springtime came early in the middle of winter. My body is experiencing what “wellness” is again.

I first learned about the sauna from a trainer who recommended it as an effective therapy for my recurring running injuries. As a competive runner, I was suffering from constant soreness in my lower back along with tightness of my hamstrings and IT bands. I have been using the sauna several times a week for the last month and have noticed less stiffness and pain when I run. It's become an essential part of my fitness routine for my overall health and well being.
Infrared light is part of the sun’s invisible spectrum that has the ability to penetrate human tissue. Infrared heater technology heats the body directly, like sunbathing, but is completely safe and will never burn your skin.
Because Far infrared saunas increase the body’s core temperature, the body rids itself of toxins through a deeper sweat. Detoxification includes the release of heavy metals such as mercury, lead and aluminum; environmental poisons such as pesticides, gasoline and industrial chemicals; and alcohol, nicotine and other drugs. Because the body sweats more at temperatures 60-80 degrees lower than conventional saunas, the detoxification is 7 to 10 times greater.
A 20-30 minute session in the Far infrared sauna burns as many calories as a six-mile run (and has the same beneficial cardiovascular effects). Medical studies on infrared have demonstrated significantly lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol and increased blood flow. Far infrared saunas can also provide relief to patients suffering from arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and certain skin conditions.
Heating the body powerfully shunts blood toward the skin to dissipate heat. This decongests the internal organs and greatly stimulates circulation. Sinuses, joints, and many other tissues benefit greatly. Raising body temperatures powerfully assists the body to kill bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses. Chronic infections in areas like the sinuses, eyes or bladder may clear up.
