Enjoy the hot-box-detox and get the benefits of a real good deep sweat. Come in either as a stand alone detox session, a pre-massage warm-up or to re-climatized after an intense float, our infrared sauna has all the comfort and space you will need to melt away all those stress and toxins you have been carrying around with you.
Sweating is good for you. It is the body’s safe and natural way to heal and stay healthy. Sunlighten far infrared sauna detoxification happens by heating the body directly, causing a rise in core temperature. This results in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside.
"Detoxification is important because it strengthens the body’s immune system and helps the body’s biochemical processes function efficiently so that we are better able to digest the nutrients in our foods. Detoxification has also been shown to be helpful with colitis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, auto-immune disease, immune deficiency states, autism, ADD and ADHD." -Dr. Rachel West
Our sauna is technically a three person sauna which means there is plenty of room For You to relax or share your sweat with a friend.
Plus, unlike traditional saunas which operate at extremely harsh temperatures, infrared is a gentle, soothing and therapeutic heat that promotes relaxation and improved sleep. Infrared sauna benefits include therapy that helps you relax while receiving an invigorating deep-tissue sweat, leaving you fully refreshed after each session.
Studies have shown that benefits of an infrared sauna session can burn upwards of 600 calories while you relax! As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories.
Infrared sauna heat penetrates tissue, joints and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia. Pain management professionals incorporate infrared sauna heat therapy into treatment plans to decrease pain and muscle spasms and to speed up recovery time.
Heating the muscles with infrared rays produces an increase in blood flow similar to that seen during exercise. Regular infrared sauna use – especially in the mid infrared range – can significantly stimulate blood flow up to twice the normal rate.
My personal favorite application of the Sauna is its ability to assist the body in fighting common colds and minor flu. By inducing a fever like response in the body, something your body does anyways to combat illness, it jump starts the immune recovery by temporarily making the body less hospitable to sickness while assisting your bodies natural detoxification systems to flush out what it doesn't want. If you can combine this with consuming enough fresh fluids to replenish your systems, you temporarily give your immune system a significant edge to tip the scales in your favor well before it would have naturally.
