Infrared Sauna Therapy
The Breathe & Detox Recovery Suite
Infrared saunas can produce the same infrared heat produced by the sun that is required for all living things for optimum health. This radiant heat increases the thermal energy in joints, muscles, and tissues. When used as intended as part of a healthy lifestyle, Jacuzzi infrared saunas may help living well with certain chronic diseases or conditions.
We use the first sauna to offer a synergistic combination of far Infrared Saunas and Halotherapy. It is created to engage all 5 senses for a truly transformative experience. TASTE the salty air, SMELL the essential oil, custom blended for our clients, FEEL the warmth of the infrared heat as it envelops your body, HEAR the soothing voice of KSARA professional guided meditation, and SEE the changing lights of the medical grade chromotherapy and red light waves. With thoughtful design, driven to support an elevated wellness experience, ours is a custom-built sauna integrated with the halogenerator and haloprotectant technology to maximize the efficacy of both modalities.
Infrared heat is all around us and you have felt it from sources like fire, heated sand on the beach, and the sun (without the harmful ultraviolet waves that the sun gives off). Just as visible light has a range of wavelengths (running from red to violet), so does infrared light: longer wavelength or far infrared waves are thermal, while short or near-infrared waves are not hot at all, in fact, you cannot even feel them. Near and mid-infrared enhance the benefits of far infrared.
Infrared Sauna Benefits
“It has been known for decades that sweating is a wonderful way to get rid of stored chemicals, including heavy metals. In fact, a sauna is one of the detoxification procedures used in the Environmental Units where the sickest of folks go to heal.” Dr. Sherry Rogers, Total Wellness, May 2000.
According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, regular use of a sauna imparts a similar boost on the cardiovascular system as running. As you relax in the gentle infrared heat, your body is hard at work producing sweat, pumping blood and burning calories.
As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart works harder to pump blood at a greater rate to boost circulation. This increase in your metabolism may burn calories.
Using an infrared sauna as intended as part of a healthy lifestyle promotes the temporary increase in blood flow to muscles and may offer temporary relief of arthritic pain.
Muscles relax best when tissues are warm for greater flexibility and range of motion. Far Infrared heat may help relieve muscle tension by increasing the thermal energy in your muscles
Infrared heat may temporarily ease joint pain and stiffness. Increased thermal energy to the joints may promote a temporary increase in blood flow. Increased thermal energy may reduce stiffness and increase range of motion.
Maintaining a cool body temperature is important for falling asleep. It explains why you have trouble sleeping on especially hot summer nights and why it’s easier to sleep when your bedroom is cool and dark. You can hack your body’s thermoregulation process by warming your body in an infrared sauna then allowing it to cool down after. This quick cool-down speeds up the process for your brain to fall asleep. The end result is a cool body that’s primed for sleep.
By using an infrared sauna before bed, you calm your body and mind promoting restful sleep. A calmer mind sleeps better for longer than a restless one. If you make a habit out of using your Jacuzzi® infrared sauna, you’ll extend these calming benefits by making it a part of your bedtime routine.
Since the far-infrared radiant heat of Clearlight Saunas® increases thermal energy in tissue, it is effective at temporarily reducing cellulite. There is a direct link between the slowing of metabolic rates and the storage of toxins in fat cells. Sauna use and far-infrared heat can temporarily increase heart rate and promote a temporary increase in localized blood circulation. This may reverse the above-mentioned trends towards the accumulation of liquids in the fat cells to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Just a few minutes in the gentle warmth of an infrared sauna can help you feel relaxed, rejuvenated, and renewed.
The profuse sweating achieved after just a few minutes in your Clearlight Sauna will allow impurities in the pores to come out. The temporary increase in local blood circulation may help reduce the risk of certain chronic skin conditions For more information on Infrared sauna detox and some research articles:
Halotherapy was originally “discovered” in the 1800s in Eastern Europe when doctors realized that salt miners didn’t suffer nearly as often from respiratory and skin conditions as others in the communities. These doctors then began to “prescribe” visits to the salt mines and at some point, the mines even carved out separate areas for this original halotherapy.
Later entrepreneurs built machines to replicate this environment and modern halotherapy was born. Halotherapy Solutions’ equipment was designed in Estonia, one of the original locations for this early halotherapy.
Due to this history, much of the research on halotherapy has taken place in Eastern Europe but is now starting to get more attention in other areas of the world such as the United States and Australia. Below is a cross-section of research in each area of halotherapy’s key benefits to getting a start on the subject.
If you would like access to research on halotherapy we would recommend that you visit the following resources
1) The World Halotherapy Association – an independent organization run by Dr Cindy Hollenbeck, who has extensive experience in respiratory diseases as well as natural remedies; and,
2) the Global Wellness Institute, a non-profit organization with a mission to empower wellness worldwide by educating the public and private sectors about preventative health and wellness.
Now that we provide far Infrared Therapy as part of our new HaloIR product, we would also recommend that you research this modality as well. Multiple studies on all aspects of far infrared and red light therapy can be found, see our website and its links.
