Infrared Sauna

I believe a healthy lifestyle is multifaceted and includes;
lifestyle, nutrition, structure (chiropractic), stress management, and 
detoxification.

Our sauna uses breakthrough 3-in-1 technology. It is the only sauna technology with three separate heating elements that emit near, mid, and far infrared. Infrared sauna has many health benefits including weight loss, pain relief, wound healing, detoxification, increased circulation, skin purification, relaxation, and increased cellular health.

Detoxification 

Infrared saunas help detox the body by causing a rise in core temperature. This results in a detoxing sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside.

Our skin is the largest organ of the body and a major detox organ. We eliminate toxins through our liver, fecal waste, and skin. The skin works best through sweating. The sauna purifies from the inside out. Metals and toxins that can be stored in the fat cells undergo lipolysis and release toxins when exposed to infrared.

“Detoxification is important because it strengthens the body’s immune system and helps the body’s biochemical processes function efficiently so that we are better able to digest the nutrients in our foods. Detoxification has also been shown to be helpful with colitis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, auto-immune disease, immune deficiency states, autism, ADD and ADHD.” -Dr. Rachel West

Relaxation
Unlike traditional saunas which operate at harsh temperatures, infrared is gentle, soothing, and therapeutic heat which promotes relaxation and improved sleep.

 

Weight Loss
Weight loss is promoted through detoxifying the body and burning calories while you relax. Studies have shown an infrared sauna session can burn upwards of 600 calories! All while you relax! As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories.

Pain
Infrared sauna therapy can be incorporated into treatment plans to decrease pain, muscle spasms, and speed up recovery time. Infrared sauna heat penetrates tissue, joints, and muscles to relieve minor pains, chronic pains, and even fibromyalgia symptoms.

A report in The Annals of Clinical Research Volume 20 showed pain relief from infrared sauna was attributed to an increase in noradrenaline, adrenaline, cortisol, and growth hormones, all which are anti-inflammatory. 

 

Blood Pressure
Research has shown a reduction in systolic and diastolic blood pressures. Because a deep sweat is induced the heart pumps faster, which increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and helps circulation.

Jama Internal Medicine showed regularly spending time in a sauna may help keep the heart healthy and extend your life. They found the more sessions per week that the men spent in the sauna actually lowered their risk of sudden cardiac death.

Participants who had two-three sauna sessions per week reduced their chance of sudden cardiac death by 22%. With four to seven sauna sessions per week when compared to just once per week showed 63% lower risk of sudden cardiac death, 48% lower risk of coronary heart disease, and 50% lower risk of cardiovascular disease.  

Our sauna is a two person sauna. You can choose to share the health benefits with a family member or enjoy the extra space alone.

Our sauna is also equipped with Chromotherapy  which uses colors to aid in health. For example, blue light can help reduce stress, induce relaxation, relieve headaches, and reduce muscle cramps.

During your sauna session you can choose to enjoy music or meditation of your choosing. Netflix is also available to enjoy during your session.
