Coming Soon!! Far-Infrared Sauna sessions one dollar per minute. Call for more information. 937-524-1017

Because infrared sauna rays penetrate the body over 1-1/2 inches, there is a deep heating effect in the muscle tissues and internal organs. Sauna benefits include: Removal of toxins, burns calories, clears cellulite, relieves pain, eases joint pain and stiffness, improves the immune system, increases blood circulation and strengthens the cardiovascular system, relaxation, and improves the skin. Come in and relax in our two-person far infrared sauna. The sauna is located in a private room where you can rest comfortably while receiving the many health benefits of far infrared technology.

Infrared Sauna
WHAT IS INFRARED?
Infrared radiation (IR) is electromagnetic radiation of a wavelength longer than that of visible light, but shorter than that of radio waves. This radiating energy penetrates the body and heats it directly and more efficiently through a process called conversion.

ARE INFRARED SAUNAS SAFE?
Yes, far infrared sauna heat is a form of energy. The sun is an example of a principle source of infrared radiant energy that we experience on a daily basis. Our bodies absorb, as well as emit infrared radiant energy. Our sauna has a concentrated micron range of 6 to 7. This is very close to your own body's frequency of 9.4 microns. The closer this frequency is, the more beneficial to your health and wellbeing. Some sellers claim that their infrared sauna heaters emit 9 to 14 microns with false or no scientific evidence. Be cautious about this kind of fraudulent information. In order to emit 9 microns, the heater surface temperature should be 100 ยบ F or less. That's slightly higher than our skin temperature! It is obvious that you can't sweat with those sauna heaters. Either their claims about wavelengths are fraudulent or you can't sweat enough in their saunas.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FAR INFRARED SAUNAS AND A TRADITIONAL SAUNA?
Our infrared sauna heaters produce radiant energy, which is the same as the heat from the sun, only without the harmful UV rays. This specific sauna heater creates infrared waves that heat your body directly, instead of just the air around you. Traditional Finnish saunas, also called rock saunas, use various types of heaters to warm the stones and air in the room.

ARE THE LOWER TEMPERATURES IN AN INFRARED SAUNA STILL EFFECTIVE?
Yes, infrared saunas may allow for up to three times the sweat volume produced compared to a traditional sauna. Far infrared sauna technology is thought to be seven times more effective at detoxifying metals such as mercury and aluminum, as well as cholesterols, nicotine, alcohol, ammonia, sulfuric acid and other environmental toxins when compared to conventional heat, or steam saunas. In our sauna, the therapeutic operating temperature is much cooler, 110°-130°F compared to a traditional sauna, which requires temperatures of 169°-200°F.

Sauna Benefits

PAIN RELIEF
The infrared energy released by a far infrared sauna can penetrate up to 1.5" deep into muscle tissue. 93% of this energy is absorbed through our skin. By heating these tissues, we experience a vasodilatation of peripheral blood vessels, which can be beneficial in reducing muscle spasms, joint stiffness and achiness, as well as general aches and pains due to conditions such as Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis, and Rheumatoid Arthritis. There is also evidence that when used 24-48 hours post injury, far infrared sauna energy can reduce the time it takes for your body to heal sprains and strains. Sauna benefits may help to reduce pain and swelling in the body.

DETOXIFICATION
Since the skin is our largest organ, it plays an important role in eliminating undesirable toxins. Some physicians refer to the skin as a third kidney. The deep penetration of our sauna's infrared technology allows removal of toxins stored in fat cells. Detoxifying in a far infrared sauna helps rid your body of potential carcinogenic heavy metals such as mercury and lead, as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid and cholesterol. CLEANSE YOUR BODY WITH EASE.

WEIGHT LOSS
As you bask in the comforts of a far infrared sauna, your body is actually hard at work attempting to maintain a constant core temperature. Our body does this by increasing peripheral blood flow and by sweating. In Guyton's textbook of Medical Physiology, it states that to produce 1 gram of sweat requires 0.568 kcal. An average sauna user can produce 500 grams of sweat and burn 350 calories during a therapeutic sauna session. This is the equivalent of running 2-3 miles. Our infrared sauna can also help rid your body of cellulite, which is a gel like substance made up of fat cells, water and wastes. FEEL THOSE EXTRA POUNDS MELT AWAY.

CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH
Infrared sauna heat therapy is one way to achieve cardiovascular conditioning effects even without exerting yourself. During a sauna session, vasodilatation of peripheral blood vessels occurs, which increases heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate. This provides a workout for your heart as the body attempts to cool itself in diverting blood from internal organs to the extremities and the skin. Research suggests that regular infrared sauna heat therapy has been beneficial in reducing blood pressure.

RELAX AND GET YOUR HEART IN SHAPE.STRESS RELIEF & RELAXATION
Wrap yourself in the warmth of our far infrared sauna rays and relax in style. Feel the stress of the day melt away in your private sanctuary. Increased circulation triggers the release of endorphins, loosening tight muscles and making you feel better all over.

BEAUTIFICATION OF SKIN
Do you want to improve the tone, texture, and elasticity of your skin? By sitting in a far infrared sauna, the increased blood circulation to the skin brings fresh nutrients to the surface. At the same time, profuse sweating is assisting in the removal of toxins that accumulate deep within your pores such as make-up, dirt, lotions, and conditioners.

TISSUE ELASTICITY
The warmth of a far infrared sauna will relax your muscles, increase flexibility, and range of motion. Studies show, tissues heated to 130° and then stretched have exhibited an elastic elongation that persists long after the stretch is removed. This was not the case when the same tissues were stretched at normal tissue temperatures. Therapeutic sauna benefits were also seen in working with ligaments, tendons, fascia, joint capsules and symposiums that have become scarred, thickened or contracted.

IMPROVE FLEXIBILITY BEYOND YOUR EXPECTATIONS.
CHROMO THERAPY OR LIGHT THERAPY
Defined as the therapeutic use of color and light in order to bring about homeostasis within the human body. Organs, muscles, cells and nerves all have a level of vibration or frequency. Each color of light has its own frequency and vibration. When our bodies become out of balance, disease occurs. Through extensive research, we know that color and light will help bring our physical and emotional systems into balance. Color works through and in us, in every nerve, cell, gland, and muscle.
