Healing Bodies One Touch at a Time

Far Infrared Sauna

Numerous health benefits have been linked to infrared sauna use. There is a fair amount of evidence associating infrared sauna use to improvements in congestive heart failure and blood pressure. Some evidence exists that infrared saunas may help to ease chronic fatigue syndrome and chronic pain. A study reported in the journal Clinical Rheumatology explained that the use of infrared saunas helped to decrease pain and stiffness for patients with rheumatoid arthritis or ankylosing spondylitis. Dr. Oz also reports that infrared saunas can cause the body to sweat out toxins, burn calories and increase blood circulation. 

Because infrared penetrates safely and comfortably up to 4.5cm / 1 3/4 inches inside your body, even your deep tissues and organs are stimulated, meaning you perspire far more than you do in a traditional sauna. Hard to reach impurities are eliminated through your skin using lower, comfortable temperatures. As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart works harder pumping more blood, achieving the conditioning benefits of continuous exercise. By widening your blood vessels and enriching your blood with oxygen you feel more energetic and your skin gets a beautiful, youthful glow.
