Health Benefits

There’s no secret to a healthy lifestyle.  It requires balance and consistency.  The 3 key components are diet, exercise, and rest/relaxation.  Even with the fast pace we live, there is effort placed towards diet and exercise.  However, rest and relaxation are often overlooked.  Professionals alike from business to sports and athletics have recognized they are at their best when they have appropriate rest.  Some athletic programs have even dedicated areas for rest and napping and others have infrared sauanas in theior facilities.  By implementing infrared sauna sessions into your weekly routine, you can help receive many of the benefits listed below, all while relaxing for 30 or 40 minutes.


  DETOXIFICATION

LOWERS BLOOD PRESSURE

We are exposed to toxins and chemicals daily with the air we breathe and our surroundings, many of which are out of our control.  Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal and stay healthy.  Common illnesses are caused by the build-up of toxic substances in the body.  Removing these toxins through a natural sauna detox may help relieve symptoms, prevent future illness and increase overall health and vitality.  Sessions in our saunas are up to 10 times greater than a conventional sauna as our infrared heat therapy has been clinically proven to raise the core body temperature resulting in a deep, natural, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside. 
Research demonstrates sessions in an infrared sauna on a regular basis improves blood vessel functions for those with high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol.  Our saunas raise the core body temperature and induce a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster much like aerobic activity.  This increases blood flow as the blood vessels dilate and helps improve circulation to promote healthy blood pressure. 

IMPROVES CIRCULATION

Infrared heat therapy increases blood flow and heats muscles similar to a passive cardiovascular workout.  The improved circulation helps to eliminate inflammation and edema, decrease pain, and accelerate healing.  Regular infrared sauna use has been shown to significantly stimulate blood flow, even after your sauna session is completed. 

WEIGHT LOSS

Studies have shown an infrared sauna session can burn up to 600 calories while you relax! As the body works to cool itself while using an infrared sauna, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. Our saunas raise core body temperature causing passive cardiovascular conditioning. Your body’s natural response to infrared heat therapy is to increase circulation and sweat.

SKIN REJUVENATION

Sauna skin therapy is essential to well-toned, healthy, great-looking youthful skin. A study published in The Journal of Cosmetic and laser therapy showed significant improvements in skin appearance after using infrared technology. Participants experienced a reduction in wrinkles and crow’s feet, as well as improved overall skin tone, including softness, smoothness, elasticity, clarity and firmness.  Rejuvenate your skin while also receiving all of the other health benefits associated with our infrared sauna therapy. 

RELAXATION AND STRESS RELIEF

The American Institute of Stress estimates that 75-90% of all visits to primary care Physicians are for stress-related problems.  Relaxation and stress relief are vital to our health, but often overlooked.  Health professionals agree – 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.  Scientific evidence also shows that infrared sauna therapy helps the body maintain healthy levels of cortisol.  Our saunas and even our studio have been designed so you can be enveloped in soothing warmth to help you relieve stress, ease your muscles and fully relax.

HEALING, RECOVERY, AND IMMUNITY

As described with some of the other benefits, infrared heat therapy increases the core body temperature, stimulates the circulatory system, causes the heart to beat more vigorously and blood vessels to dilate.  These promote faster cell regeneration and human tissue growth which help repair wounds, aid in muscle recovery and the reduction of lactic acid, and strengthen the immune system. 

PAIN RELIEF

Infrared heat penetrates tissue, joints, and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia and arthritis. Pain management professionals incorporate infrared heat therapy into treatment plans to decrease pain and muscle spasms and to speed up recovery time.
