Research has shown infrared to provide healthy benefits such as enhanced metabolic function, improved circulation, detoxification of heavy metals, increased collagen production and decreased fatigue. We feature a top-of-the-line full-spectrum infrared sauna built with carbon heaters proven to be the most effective in the marketplace. The Infrared sauna has all three types of infrared light - near, mid and far rays - helping aid the body in healing.
What Are the Benefits
Detox in our sauna is 7 to 10 times greater than a conventional sauna. In a conventional sauna the average person sweats out 3% toxins and 97% water. In our sauna, the average person sweats out 20% toxins and 80% water!
Relieve back, neck, and arthritis pain with infrared sauna heat therapy. Researchers studying HRP (Heat Responsive Pain) have observed remarkable therapeutic benefits by using continuous low level heat therapy for treating lower back and upper body pain, all conditions that fall under the HRP classification.
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 and strengthen the immune system
Raising core body temperature is key. The increased body temperature provides the same benefits, including white blood cell and T-cell production to ward off viruses. An Austrian study of healthy subjects who regularly used saunas found they had significantly fewer episodes of common colds than those who did not.
Utilizing near, mid and far infrared waves, our saunas can actually help you repair your muscles faster. After a workout, you may experience muscle inflammation. An infrared sauna naturally increases circulation, helping your muscles get the oxygen and nutrients it needs.
In fact, a study conducted at Auburn University of Montgomery showed an mPulse full spectrum sauna can increase your flexibility up to 3x. Benefits to increased range of motion include joint mobility, less friction in the joints, enabling of joint function to diminish stiffness and joint relaxation.
Lowers Blood Pressure
Our Solocarbon 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 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 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 help speed healing.
Improve your skin’s appearance with regular use of our sauna. Open wounds heal quicker with reduced scarring. 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
A 30 minute infrared sauna session can burn up to 200-600 calories! 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. Infrared heat therapy raises core body temperature causing passive cardiovascular conditioning. Your body’s natural response to infrared heat therapy is to increase circulation and sweat. Check out the results with a heart rate monitor and you will be amazed!
Our infrared therapy soothes your mind by enveloping your body in relaxing warmth. Our saunas are designed for maximum comfort, allowing you to not only loosen your body, but loosen your mind. Practicing mindful meditation while in a sauna therapy session can also help with mental stress reduction. Alone time is maximized with a sauna therapy session, giving you an opportunity to reflect and move on from the stressors of the day. 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. he more stressed you are, the more cortisol your body produces. While cortisol levels stay the same or rise slightly during a sauna therapy session, they drop immediately afterward. In fact, saunas have been clinically shown to reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure with regular use.
Before we dive deeper into a few autoimmune diseases, let’s discuss what they all have in common – infrared light therapy can help relieve some of the symptoms. “How,” do you ask? Infrared saunas work by penetrating joints, muscles and tissues, increasing circulation and speeding oxygen flow. By reducing soreness on nerve endings, infrared heat reduces muscle spasms and helps relieve pain. Our saunas technology is proven to raise the core body temperature by at least three degrees. This not only warms the body, but helps calm the nerves, also reducing pain. Surrounded by soothing warmth, you can let the outside world slip away and feel your muscles release tension, a feature that is especially appealing for someone diagnosed with an autoimmune disease.
Those with Lyme Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Graves and Mold Exposure (presents symptoms similar to other autoimmune diseases) have all found relief or benefits from infrared sauna use.
The Different Type of Waves
Scientific studies have shown infrared to successfully treat many conditions, including cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue and pain, digestion issues, and depression. Below we highlight the specific benefits of infrared light therapy, as well as key articles & studies from reputable sources.
