Infrared Sauna Therapy is used to detoxify the body, relieve tension and relax muscles. Infrared’s deep penetrating heat effectively stimulates metabolic activity triggering the release of stored toxins through sweat, the liver, and kidneys. This heat also works by penetrating joints, muscles and tissues, increasing circulation and speeding oxygen flow. Infrared sauna treatments have been used to aid in weight loss, facilitate wound healing, and reduce high blood pressure. By reducing soreness on nerve endings, infrared heat reduces muscle spasms and helps the body heal itself naturally.
Infrared saunas use invisible wavelengths of light in the infrared spectrum to produce heat. This infrared heat penetrates the skin about 1.5 – 3.5 inches without heating the surrounding air, allowing the sauna to work at lower temperatures than traditional saunas. It’s more comfortable and efficient.
The infrared energy produces an effect called resonant absorption. This means that the water in the cells of your body has reached the same frequency as the infrared energy which allows for the toxins in the cell to be released into the water then excreted from the body as sweat.

Frequently Asked Questions about Infrared Sauna Therapy
How does it work?
Infrared Rays are the healthiest sun rays that penetrate into your skin deeply helping dissolve harmful substances accumulated in your body. The Infrared Rays vitalize your cells and metabolism. Far infrared waves penetrate deep into your body for a deep heating action allowing the body to activate sweat glands.
Is it safe?
Yes! Infrared heat is all around us. You can be exposed to infrared light for hours without the risk of burning. Infrared is a naturally occurring output of the sun, but does not contain the harmful UV rays associated with unprotected sunlight. In fact, infrared heat is so safe, it is used in hospitals to warm newborn infants.
What’s the difference between infrared saunas and traditional saunas?
Infrared heat is very gentle. Unlike traditional (hot rock or steam) saunas–which operate at 200°+F, infrared heat operates at a temperature of 100°-150°F. Traditional saunas heat the air vs. the body directly. Because infrared heat penetrates human tissue vs. heating the surface of the skin, infrared saunas are seven times more effective at detoxifying the body. By raising the body’s core temperature, infrared saunas can produce a sweat composed of 20% toxins vs. only 3% toxins with a traditional sauna.
I’m taking prescription medications, can I use an infrared sauna?
Individuals using prescription drugs should consult their physician or a pharmacist for possible changes in the drugs effect when the body is exposed to infrared waves and elevated body temperature. Diuretics, barbiturates and beta-blockers may impair the body’s natural heat loss mechanisms. Some over-the-counter drugs, such as antihistamines, may cause the body to be more prone to heat stroke.
