What are the benefits of an Infrared Sauna Session?


Detoxification, relaxation, pain relief, weight loss, lower blood pressure, better circulation and skin purfication are all things you can enjoy with an Infrared Sauna session. Our body needs natural sunlight to live which is broken into seven distinct colors, and each color posseses frequecies of a specific vibration. Chromotherapy is the science of using colors to adjust body vibrations to frequencies that result in health and harmony. Chromotherapy works on various energy points to help your body re-establish its natural balance. It accomplishes this via the full spectrum of visable light. Our Infrared Sauna has been built to include these lights for additional healing benefits!

Is there anyone who shouldn't use the sauna?


Saunas and Cointraindications Drinking an electrolyte replacement water or sports drink is strongly recommended before and after sauna use. Infrared saunas creating a cure for or treating any disease is neigher implied nor should be inferred. Sauna & Medications...Individuals who are using prescription drugs should seek the advice of their personal physician or a pharmacist for possible changes in the drugs effect when the body is exposed to infrared waves or elevated body temperature. Diuretics,barbiturates and beta-blockers may impair the body's natural heat loss mechanisms. Anticholinergics such as amitryptaline may inhibit sweating and can predispost individuals to heat rash or to a lesser extent, heat stroke. Some over-the-counter drugs, such as antihistamines, may also cause the body to be more prone to heat stroke. Saunas & Cardiovascular Conditions...Individuals with cardiovascular conditions or problems (hypertension/hypotension),congestive hearet failure, impaired coronary circulation or those who are taking medications which might affect blood pressure should exercise caution when exposed to prolonged heat. Heat stress increases cardiac output and blood flow in an effort to transfer internal body heat to the outside environment via the skin (pertspiration) and respiratory system. This takes place primarily due to major changes in the heart rate, which has the potential to increase by thirty (30) beats per minute for each degree increase in core body temperature. Saunas & Alcohol...Contrary to popular belief, it is not advisable to attempt to "sweat out" a hangover. Alcohol intoxication decreases a person's judgment; therefore, he/she may not realize when the body has a negative reaction to high heat. Alcohol also increases the heart rate, which may be further increased by heat stress. Saunas & Chronic Condioions...Multiple Sclerosis, Central Nervous System Tumors and Diabetes with Neuropathy are conditions that are associated with impaired sweating. Saunas & Fever...An individual who has a fever should not use an infrared sauna until the fever subsides. Saunas & Pregnancy...Pregnant women should counsult a physician before using an infrared sauna. Saunas & Joint Injury...If you have a recent (acute) joint injury, it should not be heated for the first 48 hours after an injury or until the swollen symptoms subside. If you have a joint or joints that are chronically hot and swollen, these joints may respond poorly to vigorus heating of any kind. Saunas & Implants...Metal pins, rods, artificial jint or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared waves and thus are not heated ny this system. Nevertheless, you should consult your physician prior to using an infrared sauna. Saunas & Pacemakers/Defibrillators...The magnest used to assemble our saunas can interrupt the pacing and inhibit the output of pacemakers. Please discuss with your doctor the possible risks this may cause.
