IRS Benefits

Effortlessly detoxify and remove stored toxins from your body

Scientific analysis shows infrared heat induced sweat contains 5-6 times more toxins, fat and impurities than normal sweat. Relax in an Infrared Sauna and enjoy its unsurpassed ability to eliminate stored waste (metabolic wastes, environmental toxins, city pollution, fat, cholesterol, heavy metals, alcohol, nicotine – source: Zane R. Gard, MD & Erma J. Brown, BSN, PhN TLfDP, October 1992). One U.S. study has indicated that people using a conventional sauna were eliminating 95-97% water in their sweat. Those using an infra-red sauna, however, were found to be eliminating only 80-85% water, while the remaining 15-20% was mostly composed of undesirable elements such as sodium, fat soluble toxins, sulfuric acid, uric acid, toxic heavy metals, ammonia, and cholesterol.  Scientific analysis shows infrared heat induced sweat contains 5-6 times more toxins, fat and impurities than normal sweat.

Assist in Weight Loss and Weight Control

Our body expends energy to produce sweat (1g sweat requires 0.586 kcal) meaning your body can safely burn up to 300 calories in just one 30-minute session; with sweat loss equivalent to running 10-15km. While this weight can be regained through re-hydration, the calories burned will not. An Infrared Sauna treatment can also help to raise your basal metabolic rate meaning you will burn calories at an elevated rate for hours after your session has finished. This can translate to a benefit of up to 800 calories from a single session. At 42 degrees Celsius, body fat becomes water soluble and the body can sweat out fats, toxins, and heavy metals such as lead, zinc, nickel and mercury can be eliminated through sweating.

Heart Health

As you bask in the warmth of an Infrared Sauna the entire cardiovascular system is dilated to increase blood flow to the surface of the skin and the extremities in order to dissipate heat. This means your heart works harder pumping blood at a greater rate to boost circulation, supplying the conditioning benefits of continuous exercise. Heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate increase, while diastolic blood pressure drops, for improved overall cardiovascular fitness. Studies have also been done on the benefits of the infrared saunas on arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries).

Natural Pain Relief

In an Infrared sauna, the deep heat helps blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries. Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen rich blood to oxygen depleted muscles, so they recover faster. In Europe, radiant heat therapy is widely used to treat patients suffering from many forms of arthritis. Infrared therapy in Japan has been effective in providing pain relief to those suffering from back pain, sprains, strains, bursitis, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, headache, and many other muscular-skeletal ailments. Much of the stiffness and soreness that comes with aging is reduced or eliminated in the infrared saunas.

Natural Body Healing

Toxins disturb the bodies natural ability to heal itself. Infrared treatment works in two ways. By shedding toxins you allow the body to begin to heal itself more effectively. As well the deep heat helps blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries. Infrared therapy is so effective in increasing healing in strained muscles, damaged tendons and other sports injuries that it is used by several professional athletes, including the US Olympic team and even NASA.

Relaxation and Stress Relief

Stress is one of the most detrimental factors on our overall health. An Infrared Sauna is the perfect way to relax and let life’s pressures melt away in the soothing warmth. Infrared therapy has been shown to promote a rebalancing of the body’s hormones through its effect on the autonomic nervous system, reducing the negative physical impact of stress on the body. An Infrared Sauna session helps to truly rebalance both the mind and body.

Improve your immune System

A session in an Infrared Sauna raises body temperature, inducing a type of artificial fever. As the body works to combat this “fever” your body’s immune system is stimulated and strengthened. Combined with the elimination of toxins and wastes by intense sweating, your overall health and resistance to disease can be improved.

Improves Skin Condition and Helps Treat Cellulite

The Sauna’s deep acting infrared heat helps to develop and maintain the body’s capillary network. This increases the blood circulation especially to your skin’s surface. Together with infrared heat’s super cleansing effect, you will see a noticeable improvement in your skin’s texture, complexion and tone. It has been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns and also removes roughness and decreases scarring.
Beauty specialists in Europe regularly incorporate daily infrared sauna sessions in programs specifically designed to reduce cellulite. Because the radiant heat of an Infrared Sauna warms three times as deeply as conventional saunas and aids in the break down and release of stored fat and toxins through the skin, it is significantly more effective at reducing cellulite and promoting smoother skin.

Boosts moods and Helps Fight Seasonal Depression

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) has been widely acknowledged by the medical profession for many years. People suffering from (SAD) can see an increase of metabolic disorders, depression, skin diseases, allergies and conditions caused by impaired/suppressed immune systems. In our cold dark winters when we get as little as 7-8 hours of sunlight per day, the consequences of light deprivation are severe for many people (If you work inside, you may not see sunlight for days at a time). With light comes life; we witness this every year in the spring when the days become longer. The infrared rays from our sauna mimic the benefits of natural sunlight.

Increased Flexibility

Overall health and fitness must include flexibility as a very high priority. The Infrared Sauna is a perfect place to work on increasing your flexibility. Studies have shown that a warm muscle stretches far better than a cold one and retains the elasticity.
“Tissues heated to 45C and then stretched exhibit a non-elastic residual elongation of about 0.5-0.9% that persists after the stretch is removed, which does not occur in these same tissues at normal temperatures. Thus 20 stretching sessions can produce 10-18% increase in length of tissues so heated and stretched.”
