Infrared Sauna Health Benefits…
There is no one on this planet with a body free from accumulated toxins. The fact is our exposure to chemicals and heavy metals often exceeds our body's abilities to excrete them. The sources are everywhere: mercury from fish, mercury from dental fillings, plastics from food packaging, pesticides from our immediate environment, fire retardants virtually throughout the house, even carpeting outgases chemicals known to cause cancer. That beloved new car smell, while indicative of a car with many years left to its life, may actually be shortening yours. All of these sources, independently, are miniscule and innocuous, but they accumulate in the body ultimately to cause problems for many of us. Medical doctors and health practitioners worldwide recognize infrared sauna as perhaps the most effective method of removing both chemical and heavy metal toxins from the body.
ENHANCED IMMUNE SYSTEM HEALTH
Each infrared sauna session causes a brief, beneficial increase in body temperature, which improves immune system health by boosting production of infection-fighting white blood cells (leukocytes) by your bone marrow and killer T-cells by your thymus.
IMPROVED CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH
Medical research shows that regular use of infrared sauna may be as effective for cardiovascular conditioning as exercise. As the body heats up, it cools itself by sending blood from the internal organs to the extremities and the skin, thus increasing heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. In the 1980s, NASA concluded that far infrared stimulation is the ideal way for astronauts to maintain cardiovascular conditioning during long space flights.
High daily stress levels put constant strain on the body's nervous system and can contribute to chronic disease. Infrared sauna helps to reduce physical stress by boosting circulation and triggering the production of endorphins, the "feel good" hormones. Besides these physiological effects, a sauna session also contributes to stress reduction simply by providing a peaceful and relaxing environment away from it all.
WEIGHT LOSS & CELLULITE CONTROL
Toxins can play a significant role in preventing us from losing weight as well as gaining weight. The body will even create fat to store chemical toxins when they exceed the body's ability to excrete them. Those who have been unsuccessful at dieting often times have a toxicity problem and will find success after using infrared sauna to eliminate the chemicals stored in the fat cells that can impede weight loss. Those wishing to lose weight should also note that the cardiovascular effect from a single sauna session burns as many as 600 calories. Cellulite is a gel-like substance made up of fat, water, and waste products trapped near the surface of the skin. The sauna is also quite effective at dealing with cellulite when combined with massage therapy and nutrition.
By dilating blood vessels, infrared heat increases blood circulation to injured areas, speeding up the healing process and relieving pain. Infrared heat has also been used extensively in the treatment of arthritis, rheumatism, and muscle spasms.

Profuse perspiration deeply cleanses the skin, creating beautiful and improved tone, texture, and color.
