WHAT is AN INFRARED SAUNA?
Infrared saunas use light to heat the sauna instead of the more familiar steam. This process allows the heat to penetrate further below the skin layers, providing a much greater heating depth. This results in effectively providing pain relief along with many other health benefits. Including everything from better sleep, clearer skin, detoxification, calorie burn to reduction of inflammation, and more!
The concept has been around since the 1970s when it was introduced to the public by a Japanese doctor. By 1979 the first broad spectrum infrared saunas were born. Infrared therapy technology allows people to harness the benefits of the sun, without being exposed to harmful ultraviolet rays.
Infrared light is absorbed by the photoreceptors in cells. Once absorbed, the light energy kickstarts a series of metabolic events, triggering several natural processes of the body on a cellular level. Infrared light helps cells regenerate or repair themselves and also improves the circulation of oxygen-rich blood in the body. This promotes faster healing of deep tissues and relieves pain. Infrared therapy is safe and effective, without adverse side effects.
Our infrared sauna is equipped with chromotherapy to enhance your wellness experience. Chromotherapy, also known as color therapy, is the science of using colors to adjust body vibrations to frequencies that are said to result in health and harmony.
Benefits OF SWEAT
Sweat not only has medicinal benefits, but also spiritual and social benefits. Humans have been exploring the benefits of sweat for hundreds of years, spanning across cultures and continents.
Our unique ability to sweat is one of the key differences that separates us from other mammals in the animal kingdom. The skin’s ability to sweat (versus pant) in order to cool us down provides humans with a major advantage over other mammals. Our ancestors figured this out early on, creating a variety of bathhouses and structures that would provide humans with a good sweat.
From dugouts in East Africa to the great bathhouses of the Roman and Greek Empires, the soul filled tradition of the Finnish sauna, the mystical Sweat Lodges of the indigenous peoples and the sanctuary space of the Turkish Hammam during the Ottoman Empire, infrared saunas are the next evolution in the history of heat therapy.
