Sauna Benefits

  1. Relaxation
    Relaxation
    Relax in our sauna as the stresses and tensions of every day life melt away! Just a few minutes in the gentle warmth of our sauna and you'll feel relaxed, rejuvenated and renewed. Relaxation is more important to health than most people realize. The American Institute of Stress estimates that 75 to 90% of all visits to primary care physicians are for stress-related problems. Long-term stress is the cause of countless physiological effects on the body, including increased blood pressure, weight gain and weakening of the immune system. According to New York Times best-selling author and fitness expert Jorge Cruise – as well as many other health professionals – the more stressed you are, the more cortisol your body produces. Cortisol is a “fight or flight” hormone made in the adrenal glands that raises heart rate and blood pressure and leads to the deposit of excess calories in the midsection. Many customers comment on how much they look forward to their infrared sauna session daily as it's a great time to get away. Another great way to use the sessions is in addition to your existing visit at our center, whether it's a yoga class, a massage, reiki, or an ionic detox session. Add a rest in the sauna and double your efforts!

  2. Detoxification
    Detoxification
    Infrared Sauna heat increases your blood circulation and stimulates the sweat glands, releasing built up toxins in the body. Daily sauna sweating can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of accumulated highly toxic metals (lead, mercury, nickel, and cadmium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid, and other organic and inorganic compounds. "Traditional wisdom has suggested that saunas work largely by promoting detoxification through the sweat… Saunas also stimulate cells to release toxins which can then be eliminated by the liver and bowel. Several published studies have now shown that this hypothermic therapy can bring about the rapid removal of a wide range of toxic substances from the human body." John C. Cline, M.D., B.Sc., C.C.F.P., A.B.C.T., Medical Director of the Cline Medical Centre and Oceanside Functional Medicine Research Institute, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. "The best way to get rid of heavy metals and pesticide residues? The infrared sauna. It has been known for decades that sweating is a wonderful way to get rid of stored chemicals, including heavy metals. In fact, sauna is one of the detoxification procedures used in the Environmental Units in Dallas (Dr. William Rea) and North Charleston (Dr. Allan Lieberman) where the sickest of folks go to heal. But many people never could tolerate a sauna. Thanks to improved technology, the infrared sauna is tolerated much better, because it uses a heat energy that penetrates the tissues better, allowing an overall lower temperature to be used.” Dr. Sherry Rogers, Total Wellness, May 2000

  3. Lower Blood Pressure
    Lower Blood Pressure
    Regular use of an infrared sauna is good for your heart! In the U.S. alone, one in three adults suffers from heart disease, stroke or some other form of cardiovascular disease in their lifetime. High blood pressure increases your risk of getting heart disease, kidney disease or serious stroke. It makes sense, then to utilize a safe and non invasive technology like infrared sauna to reduce these risk factors. In a 2005 clinical study by the University of Missouri Kansas City, infrared heaters were shown to lower blood pressure through a program of 30 minute infrared sauna session 3 times per week. 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. There was also a Japanese study published in the October 2008 issue of The Journal of Cardiology examined the clinical effectiveness and safety of infrared blood pressure therapy, as compared to standard therapies for patients with chronic heart failure. The report concluded that far-infrared sauna therapy is both safe and effective at improving clinical symptoms and cardiac function as well as decreasing cardiac size in chronic heart failure patients. This study showed that, in fact, repeated infrared sauna treatments improved impaired blood vessel functions in patients with high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. Not only is the use of infrared therapy a preventative for such conditions, but also a healer of them.

  4. Improved Circulation
    Improved Circulation
    Our sauna heats your muscles with infrared rays and produces an increase in blood flow similar to regular exercise. In fact, blood flow during infrared sauna use has been reported to rise from a normal rate of 5-7 quarts per minute to as much as 13 quarts per minute.1 The elevation in body temperature from our sauna use also produces an increase in blood flow that mirrors the benefits of a passive cardiovascular workout. Regular infrared sauna use has been shown to significantly stimulate blood flow, even after your health sauna session is completed. A cardio workout has never been so easy! Add a sauna session to your visit for a yoga class, personal training, or massage and enjoy deep benefit far beyond what you ever have. Another benefit of improved circulation from our infrared sauna use is quick muscle recovery – after your regular workouts. The increased peripheral circulation from our infrared heat reduces inflammation, decreases pain and speeds healing, all important steps in helping the body recover from strenuous activity. ...the cardiovascular cleansing properties of our sauna allows the circulatory system to have increased circulation and oxygenation while lowering blood pressure. 1 Dr. Masakazu Imamura, MD, et al. Repeated Thermal Therapy Improves Impaired Vascular Endothelial Function in Patients With Coronary Risk Factors. Vol. 38, No. 4, 2001. Journal of American College of Cardiology: pp 1083-1088.

  5. Pain Relief
    Pain Relief
    Eases Joint Pain and Stiffness In many countries radiant heat therapy is widely used to treat patients suffering from many forms of arthritis. Radiant heat has also been effective in the treatment of sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms, joint stiffness and many other muscular-skeletal ailments. Much of the stiffness, aches and soreness that comes with aging is reduced or eliminated. Relieves Muscle Pain The deep heat of our 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 relax most readily when tissues are warm, for greater flexibility and range of motion. Infrared heat relieves muscle tension and 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.

  6. Cell Health
    Cell Health
    Stay healthy with the natural preventive properties of infrared sauna, which aids in cell health, muscle recovery and overall immunity defense. Infrared therapy stimulates the circulatory system, causing the heart to beat more vigorously and blood vessels to dilate, which help cleanse the circulatory system and more fully oxygenate the body’s cells. Better blood circulation means more toxins flow from the cellular level to the skin’s surface to improve cell health, aid in muscle recovery and strengthen the immune system. A NASA study showed that LED Light Therapy penetrates deep into body tissue and can quadruple cell health and tissue growth.1 Several studies have shown that LEDs (like those found in our saunas) stimulate white blood cell production and collagen growth by increasing energy at the cellular level. Other studies showed that LEDs restore enzyme activity and reduces cell death by half. Enjoy a session today and nourish your cells! 1 Harry T. Whelan, Ellen V. Buchmann, Noel T. Whelan, Scott G.

  7. Weight Loss
    Weight Loss
    Increase Metabolism, Burn Calories & Weight Loss As you relax in the gentle far 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, 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." Day Spas and Medi-Spas around the world are using Infrared Saunas more and more to help eliminate cellulite. Since the infrared radiant heat of our sauna warms three times as deep as conventional saunas, it is significantly more effective at reducing cellulite.
