Infrared Sauna

Far Infrared Sauna

For a healthier, happier you, surround your body with the proven effects of Far Infrared technology.

It works like this: The infrared heater warms up your body at the core rather than on the skin’s surface. Our Far Infrared heater is proven to lower blood pressure, increase core temperature and aid in weight loss.

Sweating is good for you. Sweating is one of the body’s safest and most natural ways to heal and maintain good health. And that’s why this detox sauna is specifically designed to promote a deep, healthy and natural detoxifying sweat. 

Step 1: Hydrate

Each day you are planning to come to the office for a sauna treatment, make sure your water intake increases. While our far infrared sauna detoxification isn’t harsh, you are still sweating – some much more than others. The sweat produced in a far infrared sauna is 80 – 85% water, so it is important that before, during, and after your sauna detox session, you drink plenty of water to rehydrate.

Step 2: Set Time Limits

The amount of time spent in a sauna detox session may vary depending upon your tolerance and daily activity level. To get your body accustomed to infrared therapy, start with 15 minute sessions. Gradually increase to 30 minutes. Listen to your body. Be aware of excessive detoxifying. If you begin to feel symptoms such as nausea, fatigue, or flu-like symptoms during your sauna session, discontinue use.

Step 3: Find a Comfortable Temperature

The optimal sauna experience occurs between 100° and 130°F. With our sauna, there is a detoxification program that combines far and mid infrared, starting at a high intensity to increase core temperature then reduces to a low, comfortable intensity level. 

Step 4: Towel Off

After each sauna detoxification session, dry off with a towel. It is best to let your body cool off naturally while still burning calories. Finish it off with a cool glass of water and you are ready to take on the day.

Q: What is the difference in steam sauna and infrared sauna for weight loss?

A: A traditional sauna uses wet or dry heat to warm the air around you, which induces sweating. This can aid in weight loss, but it has shown that the weight loss is mainly due to loss of water – or heavy sweating. An infrared sauna heats your body from the inside out, which allows you to stay in the sauna longer and increases your heart rate. Infrared sauna use results in more calories burned in a shorter period of time. Furthermore, infrared heat allows for most of the far infrared wavelength to be near 9.4 microns, which is the level at which the human body absorbs infrared energy. This is also the frequency at which a water molecule resonates or vibrates. This vibration causes a release of cellular toxins. This optimal micron output also allows for deeper penetration of far infrared heat, which improves weight loss efforts.
