The Far Infrared Sauna
The Far Infrared Sauna is a “life extension” modality highly recommended by many doctors, including “Dr. Oz”. Far Infrared Sauna (FIR) therapy is fantastic for purging the body of toxins. It is also very good for metabolism, the amount you perspire is phenomenal, and one can burn up to 700 calories in 30 minutes.
A traditional steam sauna just heats the surface of the skin, and it’s hard to breathe in them, as the temperature is so high and can make the lungs feel like they’re burning. You won’t experience this in an infrared sauna, as the heat is dry and lower temperature, but deeply penetrating. Lying on a heated mat, the client’s head remains outside the tubular sauna and ice towels are applied once deep sweating begins, to keep the brain/head cool.
Infrared light (experienced as heat) is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum with the ability to penetrate human tissue to produce a host of health benefits. FIR saunas have been shown to assist in weight loss, pain management, skin purification, detoxification of heavy metals, and stress reduction. FIR saunas can also provide relief to patients suffering from arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, muscle relaxation, increased flexibility, improved blood circulation, enhanced immune system function, reduces joint pain and stiffness, increases metabolism and certain skin conditions. FIR sauna therapy surrounds the body and penetrates deeply into joints, muscles and tissues, speeding oxygen flow and increasing circulation.

Recommended session time is 30-45 minutes
