Cell Health, Muscle Recovery & Immunity: Like stated above infrared therapy stimulates the circulatory system, this causes our heart to beat more vigourously and our blood vessels to dilate, which helps cleanse the circulatory system and more fully oxygenated body’s cells. When your blood circulation improves it causes more toxins to flow from the cellular level to the surface of our skin which in turn will aid in muscle recovery, improve your cell health and kick start your immune system. Studies show that infrared therapy delivered into deep body tissue can quadruple cell health and tissue growth. The LEDs found in our saunas have also shown an increase in stimulation of white blood cell production as well as collagen growth by increasing the energy level at a cellular level.

An infrared sauna uses infrared heaters to emit infrared light experienced as radiant heat, which is absorbed by the surface of the skin. It provides all the healthy benefits of natural sunlight.....without any of the dangerous effects of solar radiation.

As you relax in the comfortable heat of the infrared sauna, your body is actually working hard to produce sweat, eliminate toxins, increase circulation and burn off unwanted calories.

Amazingly, infrared rays penetrate approximately 1 to 1.5 inches below the skin surface. This helps to break down the water barrier where the fat cells (cellulite) and toxins (including heavy metals) are stored. It also helps to clear pores or pathways deep beneath the skin so that the body can release stored toxins and fats.

One natural alternative treatment that has been on the fringes but is gaining traction is infrared sauna therapy. A new study has found that infrared sauna benefits include significant reductions in fatigue in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome.[1] In addition, the infrared sauna therapy was found to significantly reduce anxiety and depression.[1] Intern Med. 2015;54(3):333-8.

Canadian Family Physician website reports that there is a fair amount of evidence associating infrared sauna use to improvements in congestive heart failure and blood pressure. Furthermore, the journal explains that some evidence exists that infrared saunas may help to ease chronic fatigue syndrome and chronic pain. A study reported in the journal Clinical Rheumatology explained that the use of infrared saunas helped to decrease pain and stiffness for patients with rheumatoid arthritis or ankylosing spondylitis. Dr. Oz also reports that infrared saunas can cause the body to sweat out toxins, burn calories and increase blood circulation.

"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 cholitis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, auto-immune disease, immune deficiency states, autism, ADD and ADHD." -Dr. Rachel West
