BENEFITS OF INFRARED SAUNAS
RELAXATION | BETTER SLEEP
Infrared promotes relaxation by balancing your bodies level of cortisol (your primary stress hormone) and helping to down regulate the nervous system. Regular use can help you get better sleep at night.
HEART HEALTH | IMPROVED CIRCULATION
Countless studies have shown that the cardiovascular benefits associated with infrared sauna therapy are numerous and varied, and include improved circulation, lower blood pressure & enhanced vascular function.
IMMUNE SYSTEM RESPONSE
Infrared supports your bodies health by helping to produce more white blood cells (our bodies pathogen and virus defense system) during your sauna session, helping you stay healthy and recover faster from illness.
MUSCLE RECOVERY | PAIN RELIEF
Infrared Saunas can improve your circulation, which dilates the blood vessels to send more oxygen to the cells. An increase in oxygen can help tired and overworked muscles relax and recover more quickly after a tough workout.
Our infrared saunas can help to eliminate toxins such as BPA, trace metals, nicotine, mercury etc. seven times more quickly than regular saunas. Your internal and external (skin) organs will feel refreshed and rejuvinated.
