Treating stress, pain and injury.
For a completely private session we suggest that you call to make your Far Infrared Sauna appointment at least 90 minutes before arrival.
Far Infrared warms you, not just the air around you! Infrared energy measurably reaches deep into tissue and muscle to soothe, relax and reduce pain causing inflammation.
Hot box type saunas work through indirect heating. Your skin must absorb energy from the surrounding super heated air and transfer it internally, a very inefficient process.
With Far Infrared heat, less than 20% of far infrared energy heats the air so 80% of healing radiant energy is directly converted to warming heat within your body. You will feel the difference!
Infrared energy released by a our Sauna can penetrate up to 1.5" into muscle tissue. It is estimated that 93% of this energy is absorbed directly through our skin. By internally and gently heating tissues, we experience a vasodilatation of peripheral blood vessels which can be beneficial in reducing muscle spasms, joint stiffness, aches and swelling. This treatment is beneficial in treating pain due to conditions such as Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis.
There is also evidence that when used 24-48 hours post injury, far infrared energy can reduce healing time of sprains and strains. In many cases it may help to reduce pain and localized swelling. (NOTE: Acute joint injury should not be heated within the first 48 hours, or until the joint erythema and swelling subsides.)
Since the skin is our largest organ, it plays an important role in eliminating undesirable toxins. Some physicians refer to the skin as a third kidney.
The deep penetration of our Saunas infrared energy allows removal of toxins stored deep in fat cells. Detoxifying helps rid your body of potential carcinogenic heavy metals such as mercury and lead, as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid and cholesterol. Cleanse your body with ease by gently promoting a comfortable sweat!
The warmth of our Sauna will relax your muscles, increase flexibility and range of motion. Studies show, tissues heated to 130° and then stretched have exhibited an elastic elongation that persists long after the stretch is removed. This was not the case when the same tissues were stretched at normal tissue temperatures.
Therapeutic benefits were also seen in working with ligaments, tendons, fascia, joint capsules and symposiums that have become scarred, thickened or contracted. Improve flexibility beyond your expectations.
Infrared heat therapy is one way to achieve cardiovascular conditioning effects even without exerting yourself. During a sauna session, vasodilatation of peripheral blood vessels occurs which increases heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. This provides a workout for your heart as the body attempts to cool itself in diverting blood from internal organs to the extremities and the skin. Research suggests that regular infrared heat therapy has been beneficial in reducing blood pressure. Relax and get your heart in shape.
Wrap yourself in the warmth of far infrared rays and relax in style. Feel the stress of the day melt away in your private sanctuary. Increased circulation triggers the release of endorphins, loosening tight muscles and making you feel better all over.
As you relax in our infrared Sauna your body is actually hard at work attempting to maintain a constant core temperature. Your body does this by increasing peripheral blood flow and by sweating. In Guyton's Textbook of Medical Physiology, it states that 1 gram of sweat requires 0.568 kcal to produce.
An average sauna user can produce 500 grams of sweat and burn 350 calories during a therapeutic sauna session. This is the equivalent of running 2-3 miles. Our infrared saunas can also help rid your body of cellulite which is a gel like substance made up of fat cells, water and wastes. Feel those extra pounds melt away.
Do you want to improve the tone, texture and elasticity of your skin? By sitting in our Sauna, the increased blood circulation to the skin brings fresh nutrients to the surface. At the same time, gentle sweating is assisting in the removal of toxins that accumulate deep within your pores such as make-up, dirt, lotions and conditioners. Look and feel better!

Certain Diseases: Raising the core temperature may be contraindicated for individuals with adrenal suppression, multiple sclerosis, or systemic lupus erythematosus.
Joint Conditions: An acute joint injury should not be heated within the first 48 hours, or until the joint erythema and swelling subsides.
Pregnancy: When pregnant, it is recommended to discontinue use of infrared saunas immediately.
