Recovering from a sports injury? Trying to lose weight? Managing high blood pressure? Infrared saunas are not only for relaxation, but a proven therapy for the whole body. Below are treatment recommendations for specific conditions. Choose the treatment that best suits your needs and schedule a session today. Your body will thank you!
It’s important to drink H2O prior to your session to help you sweat and not dehydrate too quickly and again after your session to help remove toxins that are broken up, as well as to rehydrate tissue.
As part of a sauna skin therapy program, full spectrum infrared saunas help restore skin to a youthful appearance. Forgo expensive cosmetic treatments that may have limited effects or questionable long-term safety. Instead, rejuvenate your skin while also receiving all of the other health benefits associated with our full spectrum infrared sauna therapy.
A study published in The Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy showed significant improvements in skin appearance after just 12 weeks of sauna skin therapy using near-infrared technology. Participants experienced a reduction in wrinkles and crow’s feet, as well as improved overall skin tone, including softness, smoothness, elasticity, clarity and firmness. Clients have also experienced their complexion getting better, a healthy glow and the fine lines on their faces lessened too. Skin is reported more hydrated without having to add moisturizers.
Researchers have long told us how the body sweats out toxic substances, including heavy metals. As long as you maintain proper hydration, the more you safely sweat, the more toxins you’ll expel from your body. And what is one of the safest and most effective methods for inducing a detoxifying sweat? An infrared sauna! In sauna detox, your body sweats out numerous toxins through pores. But not all sweats are the same; and neither are all saunas.
In fact, our infrared saunas are seven times more effective than a traditional sauna. Our detox sauna uses far infrared heat to generate sweat with a toxin ratio of nearly 20%. In traditional saunas, you might get a three percent ratio. We’re able to offer this incredible rate of detoxification because of highly-efficient and proprietary infrared heating technology – the only technology proven to raise core body temperature by two-to-three degrees. Rather than simply heating the ambient air to draw out toxins, our sauna detox will heat your body's core to expel them.
The secret is out on sauna weight loss. Using infrared heat technology to burn calories, our sauna is clinically shown to aid weight loss. In a 2009 study, our infrared sauna was shown to help lower weight and waist circumference in just a three-month period. The common theme among subjects in the study was that far infrared sauna use was similar to moderate exercise but “much more relaxing.” Therefore, infrared saunas can be an effective fitness option for those who cannot participate in traditional exercise programs due to medical conditions such as osteoarthritis, cardiovascular or respiratory problems.
In addition, according to information published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, infrared sauna weight loss sessions were shown to burn up to 600 calories in 30 minutes. During a sauna weight loss session, core temperatures increase. The body has to work hard to cool itself, causing a healthy sweat. Using an infrared sauna increases heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, burning more calories, leading to more weight loss. And blood flow rises, increasing from 5-7 quarts up to 13 quarts a minute. Plus, regular use of a sauna may provide many of the same benefits as regular exercise, such as cardiovascular conditioning. That’s right, using infrared weight loss therapy is like giving yourself a passive cardio workout.
This is the recovery and performance enhancing recommendation if you are attempting to increase your metabolism, strength, post-workout recovery, energy levels, and muscular endurance. Infrared therapy has demonstrated the ability to excite the mitochondria of the cell, producing an increase in energy, which aids in increased metabolic function. As the body’s core temperature elevates, the heat elicits the release of growth hormone, which in turn increases muscle growth, fat breakdown, and calcium retention. In addition, cells are oxygenated cleansing the circulatory system.
Increase in protein tissue, and other regenerating genes exposed to Infrared therapy, suggests that it accelerates tissue recovery. In studies, white blood cell production and collagen growth have been stimulated with near infrared.
Infrared therapy provides a deep heat that helps reduce pain and promotes increased circulation to areas of discomfort. It may also reduce and prevent the formation of scar tissue and myofascial adhesions. Full spectrum infrared sauna heat works by penetrating joints, muscles and tissues, increasing circulation and speeding oxygen flow. By reducing soreness on nerve endings, our infrared heat reduces muscle spasms and helps the body heal itself naturally. For years, doctors have recommended infrared saunas because of proven relief from sports injury, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, arthritis, and other chronic pain conditions.
A recent Japanese study published in the journal, Internal Medicine, showed that chronic pain patients experienced a significant reduction in pain levels (nearly 70%) after the first session of infrared sauna therapy. Pain scores also decreased significantly and remained low throughout the observation period. Researchers concluded that infrared heat therapy is effective for chronic pain treatment.
A 2003 study conducted by the Department of Dermatology and Institute of Medical Research showed that use of near-infrared heat therapy helped the production of white blood cells to alleviate inflammation and reduce swelling, two key factors in easing bodily pain. Our sauna is scientifically proven to deliver these types and levels of therapeutic near-infrared wavelengths.
When attempting to promote a healthier circulatory system, it is important to understand that the deep heat of infrared therapy causes an elevation in both heart rate and cardiac output. It is believed that this additional stress placed on the heart leads to conditioning of the heart muscle, which eventually lowers blood pressure. Also, the release of nitric oxide dilates blood vessels of the circulatory system and enhances blood flow to the body.
The infrared sauna has been clinically determined to provide one of the best, natural ways to lower blood pressure. In a 2005 clinical study by the University of Missouri Kansas City, blood pressure was lowered through a program of 30 minute infrared sauna sessions three times per week. The study concluded that infrared sauna therapy dilated blood vessels increasing circulation to promote healthy blood pressure.

Red promotes cellular growth and stimulates the circulatory system. It helps with colds, sluggish conditions, such as pneumonia, arthritis and anemia, and for increasing circulation. Red increases energy and stimulates sensory nerves such as hearing, taste, smell and activates the metabolism. It is excellent for anemia or blood-related conditions.
Yellow helps awaken mental inspiration, providing clarity of thought. It is an excellent color for nerve-related conditions. Yellow can be used for conditions of the stomach, liver and intestines. It can help the pores of the skin by repairing scarred tissue. Typical diseases treated by yellow are constipation, gas, liver troubles, diabetes, eczema and nervous exhaustion.
Green is the universal healing color. Green helps relax muscles, nerves and thoughts. Green has an energizing and soothing effect. It can help heal many illnesses of this nature, specifically including heart troubles, decreasing and stabilizing blood pressure, ulcers, cancer, headaches, nervous disorders and influenza, and acts as a general tonic.
