Infrared Sauna Therapy (IRS)

WINTER SPECIAL***UNLIMITED USAGE***$99+HST/month

Radiant heat is a form of energy that heats objects directly, without heating the air in between.  This is also called “infrared heat” (never to be confused with ultra-violet light).  Infrared heaters are used by hospitals to warm premature infants – Safety first.

The benefits of IRS include:

ELIMINATING HARMFUL TOXINS…

Take the detoxifying load off your liver and kidneys by the direct elimination of toxins through the skin.  Two or three times more sweat is produced in the infrared sauna than is possible in conventional hot air saunas. Greater detoxification of heavy metals is achieved including: lead, mercury, aluminum, cadmium and fat soluble toxins.

REMARKABLE PAIN RELIEF…

This deep heat helps blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries.  In Europe, infrared heat is widely used to treat patients suffering from many forms of arthritis. In addition, infrared therapy in Japan has been effective for the relief of pain associated with backache, bursitis, fibromyalgia, headache, sprains, strains, and many other muscular skeletal ailments.  Much of the stiffness and soreness that comes with aging is reduced or eliminated.

BURN CALORIES…

Heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate increase to improve overall cardiovascular fitness.  Lose weight, not just water.  You can receive the “training effect” while reading and relaxing.  NASA concluded that infrared “passive exercise” was the ideal way to keep astronauts fit during space flight.

RELAXATION…

Relieve stress and tension in the relaxing atmosphere of your own personal sauna.  Connect your favorite mode of listening entertainment to the high quality stereo speakers built into all models.

CLEARS CELLULITE…

Soft Heat Saunas help clear cellulite, the gel type lumps of fat, water and debris trapped in the pockets beneath the skin.  European beauty specialists incorporate daily saunas in programs to reduce cellulite.

IMPROVES SKIN…

The profuse sweating achieved in the infrared sauna carries off deeply imbedded impurities and dead skin cells, leaving the skin glowing and immaculately clean. Skin tone and elasticity are improved.  It has been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis and also remove roughness.

BOOSTS IMMUNE RESPONSE…

Studies have shown that the infrared sauna improves a number of parameters in the immune system to stimulate the body’s own natural healing processes.

 

The infrared sauna operates at safer, lower temperatures than other saunas, which makes breathing more comfortable.  A conventional sauna operates at 1800-2100F while the infrared sauna is only 1100-1300F.  The radiant heat is absorbed by the body to a depth of over 1.5” below the skin.
