The Benefits of Far Infrared Sauna (FIR)

Close your eyes and let your stress melt away as you relax in the warmth of our far infrared sauna. There are many health benefits you are receiving as the soothing warmth envelopes your body. Increased sweat production works your heart and circulation, improving the cardiovascular system, and detoxifying your body of heavy metals and chemical toxins. A sauna can also aid in weight loss and cellulite reduction. A single sauna session burns up to 600 calories, the equivalent to 30 minutes of rowing. The cardiac and calorie burning benefits are especially helpful to those who are physically unable to exercise due to injury or illness. The detoxification benefits are useful to those whose other modes of detoxification may be impaired (liver, kidney and lung), or by those wishing to augment other detoxification regimens.


Benefits of the far infrared sauna:

  • detoxification
  • enhanced immune function
  • improved cardiovascular function
  • stress reduction
  • weight control
  • cellulite reduction
  • pain relief
  • enhanced skin clarification

What is FIR?

Far infrared sauna (FIR) warms only the object and not the temperature of the surrounding air. Therefore, low temperatures are used making it comfortable to sit in and to breathe the air. The far infrared waves penetrate your body 2-3” deep, which increases circulation and nourishes damaged tissue. There are more than adequate perspiration and healing benefits even at low temperatures. It is safe for all ages, but not recommended in pregnancy.

Conditions for which FIR may be helpful:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Weight control
  • Detoxification before and after chemotherapy
  • Brain fog
  • Autism
  • AD(H)D
  • Heavy metal poisoning
  • Chemical toxicity (pesticides, solvents, fungicides, etc)
  • Allergies
  • Night sweats
  • Digestive troubles
  • Insomnia
  • Memory loss
  • Candidiasis
