Why Infrared?



  

"A sauna used to be thought of as a luxury. Studies now confirm that diet and environmental chemicals cause 95% of cancers. Furthermore, as the first generation of man exposed to such an unprecedented plethora of daily chemicals, we have learned that stored or undetoxified chemicals can mimic any disease. ' Incurable' chronic diseases that were thought to have no known cause often disappear once toxic chemicals are gone. Since the far infrared sauna is the safest, most efficacious and economical way of depurating stored toxins, this makes it a household necessity."
-Sherry Rogers, M.D., Northeast Center for Environmental Medicine - internationally known expert in environmental medicine and author of; Detoxify or Die, and Tired or Toxic?

Infrared saunas provide exceptional health benefits that are not obtained through conventional steam saunas. The Far Infrared Radiant (FIR) heat penetrates deep into the body to provide pain relief to aching muscles and joints. With the new technology used in these saunas, you can enjoy maximum health benefits at a fraction of the cost of conventional saunas.

The age old ritual of sweat bathing or spending time in a "hot house" has been providing its users with health benefits for countless years. Today, with the advent of the Far Infrared heating system (FAR or FIR), sauna therapy is moving from a purely holistic treatment method to becoming a genuine, accepted treatment in the fight against some of our most severe health ailments.





The secret to its multiple health attributes lies in the Far Infrared heat absorption produced in the sauna environment. Far Infrared energy penetrates deep into the human body, reaching down into the muscles, organs and cellular structures. This deep penetrating heat causes the heart to pump faster, increases blood flow and leads to a phenomenon known as hyperthermia.

Toxic elements such as alcohol, nicotine, sodium, cholesterol and carcinogenic heavy metals (cadmium, lead, zinc, nickel, mercury) accumulate in the body during modern daily life.

Additionally, Infrared saunas use much less electricity than traditional saunas and therefore are environmentally friendly. The heat in an infrared sauna is radiant heat. Radiant heat warms only the body not the air. When the energy touches you, it converts to heat. This is like sunshine in your sauna.
