INFRARED SAUNA

Step into our Clearlight Infrared Sauna and step into a new you as the healing far infrared heat stimulates your cardiovascular, lymphatic and immune systems. This produces a deep, therapeutic perspiration releasing toxins, burning calories and relaxing your muscles. Far infrared therapy is ideal for those needing a detox from heavy metals, those suffering from stress related ailments and auto-immune disorders. If you have been injured and work-outs are impaired, or have a build-up of lactic acid from strenuous activity, the far infrared sauna is extremely beneficial. As little as one session can have an anti-inflammatory effect and provide dramatic relief from arthritis. Choose a single session or a package of sessions if you need a more aggressive approach to achieve better health. Sauna sessions are approximately 30-minutes in duration.

The benefits of regular sessions are amazing:

Detoxification - Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal and stay healthy. The leading detoxification principle is that illnesses can be caused by the build-up of toxic substances. In our Clearlight Infrared Sauna, the average person sweats out 20% toxins versus only 3% in a traditional sauna.

Weight Loss - Studies show that a 30-minute infrared sauna session can burn upwards of 600 calories. During a sauna weight loss session, core temperatures increase. As the body works to cool itself there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate.

Pain Relief Clinical research on pain has shown evidence of heat responsive pain, or HRP, which encompasses several common pain conditions that can be specifically treated with the use of our infrared sauna therapy.

Blood Pressure Reduction - Clinical research shows a reduction in systolic and diastolic pressure occurs with regular infrared sauna use. Both are key factors in maintaining a healthy heart.

Skin Purification - Improve your skin’s appearance with regular use of our infrared sauna. Open wounds heal quicker with reduced scarring. Far infrared heat therapy helps acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns and cuts. It also reduces wrinkles, makes skin look radiant, firms and improves skin tone and elasticity.

Improves Circulation - The heating of muscles with far infrared produces an increased blood flow similar to the effects of exercise. Body temperature elevation also produces an increase in blood flow. Infrared heat assists in resolution of inflammatory infiltrates, edema and exudates. The increase peripheral circulation provides the transport needed to help speed the body’s healing.

Relaxation and Stress Relief - Relaxation is more important to health than most people realize. The Clearlight Infrared Sauna delivers the most therapeutic infrared heat per square inch (up to 98% efficient), so that you can be enveloped in soothing warmth to help you relieve stress, ease your muscles and fully relax.

So, exactly what is far infrared? It is part of the invisible spectrum of light. These narrow bands of radiant energy penetrate inches below the surface of the skin and warm the body directly. The far infrared heat produced by the Clearlight Infrared Sauna is totally safe and natural. Far infrared heat is actually used in hospitals to keep newborn babies warm.

Located in a private treatment room, you can get your sweat on or keep the temperature low. No matter what the temperature, the effects of the far infrared rays are working to bring you to a state of health and relaxation. It is a sauna experience like no other. Bring a book or read one of ours, listen to our soothing spa music or a guided meditation , or tune into a local radio station on the sound system inside the sauna.  

Far infrared saunas DO NOT cure any diseases. DO NOT attempt to self treat any disease without direct supervision from a certified physician.  There are contraindications for infrared sauna use.  If you have any contraindications,  be certain to consult with your physician before using a far infrared sauna.
