Why Infrared Therapy?
Developed in the 1970's by Japanese health practitioners, infrared saunas were designed for those who want to look and feel their best. Infrared offers the same health benefits as traditional Finnish saunas, but provides a gentle and soothing experience.
A conventional sauna relies on indirect heat where the air is heated and the hot air makes contact with your skin. In an infrared sauna, radiant infrared energy heats the air only slightly, heating your body directly for a comfortable infrared therapy experience.
Our Infrared Sauna generates heat that warms up to three times deeper than traditional saunas, helping to ease the inflammation in your joints by giving them more oxygen.
One session improves circulation, stimulates the nerves and muscles throughout your whole body as well as relax stiff joints, providing you with pain relief for minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions almost immediately in up to 80% of clients.
Our Infrared Sauna causes your core body temperature to increase, the same as if you are exercising, therefore increasing your heart rate.
One session can burn as much as 600 calories whilst you’re sitting down reading a book, relaxing and de-stressing.
As you are unwinding, your body is enjoying a healthy cardiovascular workout during your sauna session. As your core body temperature rises, it causes your body’s blood vessels to dilate.
The benefits of enjoying regular sauna sessions include enhanced circulation, improved vascular function, reduced blood pressure whilst also greatly lowering the risk of heart disease.
The LED infrared light therapy is designed to improve blood circulation and cellular health. As the heat penetrates the skin and soaks deeply into the tissue it removes dirt, toxins, dry skin cells and blackheads leaving you to appear youthful and fresh.
Our infrared sauna is dry heat, concentrating on increasing your core body heat rather than the room temperature. This results in a much more intense, deeper detoxifying sweat and deeper tissue penetration. The sweat feels similar to running a fever, increasing the effectiveness of your immune system and letting the body naturally heal itself.
You will rid itself of a number of nasty toxins, including mercury, lead and other new age environmental chemicals.
Cortisol is your body’s primary stress hormone and helps to control blood sugar levels, reduces inflammation and blood pressure, regulates your metabolism and helps with your memory function.
Relaxing in our infrared sauna helps to balance your cortisol levels as well as help you to relax your muscles and senses.
