Benefits of Using an Infrared Sauna

The Clinic

Detoxification:  Sweating is one of the body’s most natural ways to eliminate toxins - eliminates about 7 x more toxins. 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.

Relaxation/better sleep:  Infrared sauna therapy promotes relaxation by helping to balance your body’s level of cortisol, your body’s primary stress hormone. The heat generated by the sauna will also help to relax muscles and relieve tension throughout the body, allowing you to relax and destress.

Weight loss:  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 calories. One 30 minute sauna session can burn upwards of 600 calories!

Reduces Swelling and Inflammation: By Improving the Flow of the Lymph System.

Pain relief:   Infrared sauna heat penetrates tissue, joints and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia. Pain management professionals incorporate infrared sauna heat therapy into treatment plans to decrease pain and muscle spasms and to speed up recovery time.

Improved blood circulation/reduction in cellulite:  As the heat from infrared saunas increases your core body temperature, your circulation will increase along with it. Consistent infrared sauna sessions, especially in the middle-infrared level, can stimulate blood flow; improve muscle recovery, and decrease pain and inflammation after intense exercise.

Chronic fatigue syndrome: Can reduce symptoms of fatigue and mood.

Antiaging/skin purification: It will heal the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin, stimulate collagen production to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin tone by removing toxins.

Aids in cell health, muscle recovery and immunity defense: The sauna stimulates the circulatory system and more fully oxygenates the body’s cells. Better blood circulation means more toxins flow from the cellular level to the skin’s surface to improve cell health, aid in muscle recovery and strengthen the immune system.
