Pure infrared therapy is delivered both in our state of the art fitness studios and in our custom made personal infrared sauna booths. We love infrared and have chosen to incorporate it into our routine for all the reasons below.
Studies have shown that the benefits of an infrared sauna session can burn upwards of 600 calories while you relax! 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.
Sweating is the body's safe and natural way to heal & stay healthy. Far infrared waves benefit the body by heating it directly causing a rise in core temperature. The result is a deep, detoxifying sweat at the level where toxins reside.
Infrared heat penetrates tissue, joints, and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions. Pain management professionals incorporate infrared heat therapy into treatment plans to decrease pain and to speed up recovery time.
Infrared heat is a gentle, soothing and therapeutic heat that promotes relaxation and improved sleep. Infrared sauna benefits include therapy that helps you relax while receiving an invigorating deep tissue sweat, leaving you fully refreshed after each session.
Heating the muscles with infrared rays produces an increase in blood flow similar to that seen during exercise. Regular infrared sauna use, especially in the mid-infrared range, can significantly stimulate blood flow up to twice the normal rate.
Lower Blood Pressure
Infrared therapy induces a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and helps circulation.
Near-infrared therapy 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.
The near-infrared wavelength (referred to as Red Light Therapy) is the most effective wavelength for healing the epidermis and dermis layers. Near-infrared treatments stimulate collagen production of the skin to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin tones.
Infrared heat is very gentle. It provides all the healthy benefits of natural sunlight without any of the dangerous effects of solar radiation. With near, mid, and far rays, infrared penetrates your skin and heats the core of your body.
