What is Far Infrared Sauna Therapy?

Far Infrared Sauna Therapy is not like a normal sauna session. This sauna has solo carbon panels that produce Far Infrared heat. Infrared is what we get from the sun but without the harmful UV rays. Unlike a regular sauna that heats your skin, the Far Infrared heats your core, getting it to a more effective temperature. This in turn increases your blood flow and leads to the following benefits:


The average person sweats out 3% toxins and 97% water. In a Far Infrared Sauna, the average person sweats out 20% toxins and 80% water!


Relieve back, neck, and arthritis pain with Far Infrared sauna heat therapy. Researchers studying HRP (Heat Responsive Pain) have observed remarkable therapeutic benefits from using continuous low level heat therapy for treating lower back and upper body pain - all conditions that fall under the HRP classification.


A 30 minute Far Infrared sauna session can burn up to 200-600 calories! As the body works to cool itself while using a Far Infrared sauna, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. Far Infrared heat therapy raises core body temperature causing passive cardiovascular conditioning. Your body's natural response to Far Infrared heat therapy is to increase circulation and sweat. Check out the results with a heart rate monitor and you will be amazed!


Solo carbon heaters were used in a clinical study with the University of Missouri Kansas City in 2005 and were shown to lower blood pressure from a 30 minute sauna session three times a week. Repeated Far Infrared treatment improves impaired blood vessel functions in patients with high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. This suggests a preventative role for sauna use for arteriosclerosis.


Heating of muscles with Far Infrared produces an increased blood flow level similar to that seen during exercise. Body temperature elevation also produces an increase in blood flow. Infrared heat assists in resolution of inflammatory infiltrates, edema and exudates. The increased peripheral circulation provides the transport needed to help evacuate the edema which can help end inflammation, decrease pain and speed healing.


Improve your skin's appearance with regular use of a Far Infrared Sauna. Open wounds heal quicker with reduced scarring. Far Infrared heat therapy helps acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns and any skin lesions or cuts. It also reduces wrinkles, makes skin look radiant, firms and improves skin tone and elasticity. Regular use may also help reduce cellulite trapped beneath the skin, lessen the appearance of scars, and help burns heal significantly.
