Infra Red Sauna

Infra Red Sauna

 

Lay down, Relax, and enjoy the total 360 degree surround of Far Infrared Healing heat.

Lounge in the comfort of our warm and cozy sauna. Far Infrared (FIR) is a form of energy which heats the air through a process called conversion. This heat is being absorbed deep into the body. It gently elevates the body’s temperature which stimulates blood circulation accelerating the metabolic exchange between the body and blood tissues to relieve pain and promote healing. Far Infrared heat is completely healthy and safe. In fact, it’s so safe, it is used in hospitals to warm newborn infants.

Far infrared is the ‘chi’ energy in humans and animals, also emitted from sunlight. The intensity of Far infrared produced by the human body constantly fluctuates. When it’s intensity is high, we feel healthy and are able to overcome ailments. When the Far infrared (FIR) begins to decline, we are subject to disease and illness and tend to age more quickly. We can be exposed to Far infrared heat for hours and it will never cause our skin to burn.

Lying down in the dome promotes distinct cardiovascular and neurological advantages. Laying down relieves the nervous system and cardiovascular system of the extra stress that is required to maintain an erect posture..

Immune system support using the Sauna Dome

“Give me the power to create a fever, and I shall cure any disease.”

Hippocrates, “The Father of Modern Medicine” (2,000 years ago)

Hyperthermia, from the Greek words “hyper”, meaning high, and “thermos”, meani ng temperature, can simply be defined as the elevation of the body temperature. In humans a fever is a physiological thermic resource. Hyperthermia represents a natural immune approach in combating disease since it involves inducing an exaggerated version of the body’s own fever state.

This wisdom is testimony to the profound healing effects that happen when body temperature rises. Fever acts as a defense mechanism against a number of processes such as infection. One of the most immediate physiological effects of the fever is the acceleration of metabolic processes in general. Fever increases oxygen uptake and renders white blood cells more aggressive against bacteria, fungi or viruses. False fever created by Far infrared Rays, within physiological limits, can have many beneficial effects and will not produce any harm to normal cells that are able to cope with the higher metabolic demand. The Sauna Dome raises core body temperature and gives the user the gift of ripened harvest of one’s own immune systems processes.

Benefits of the FIR Sauna Dome

Optimum Relaxation

In just minutes the Sauna Dome will deeply relax the body. Used as day therapy for release of tension and completely bathing the body (360 degrees) in wonderful penetrating far infrared heat as well as negative ions that are valued for their healing and anti-aging properties

Detoxification

Increased blood circulation and improved oxygen supplies to the skin with increased core body temperature from far infrared heat promote improved exchange of nutrients into cells and the discharge of toxins

Improved Blood Circulation

An increase in blood circulation encourages a healthy flow of nutrients throughout the body. The health of the whole system depends on the movement of blood and energy throughout. By dilating blood vessels and penetrating deeply into the body the Infrared Sauna Dome increases and strengthens circulation without causing any stress on the system

Relieves Pain

Radiant heat expands and dilates peripheral blood vessels. This action brings relief to muscles and soft tissue injuries. In addition, increased blood circulation delivers oxygen-rich blood to injured muscles which helps to speed up the body’s natural recovery process. Effective in helping reduce the pain of arthritis, back pain, muscle spasms, headache, etc

Rehabilitate Injuries

Radiant heat can help with sprains, strains, arthritis, muscle spasms and pain as circulation throughout the body is enhanced.
Strengthens the Cardiovascular & Immune System
As core body temperature rises there is corresponding increase in immune chemicals and the self healing abilities of the body become more effective. Our heart pumps blood at a greater rate, giving us the same benefits as a cardiovascular workout. Heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate increase, while diastolic blood pressure drops, resulting in improved physical fitness
Infrared heat produces a radiated heat that moves as energy waves. With the Far Infrared Dome, the heat being generated is absorbed deep into the body. Some of the best results have been reported by those with back and joint ailments. Effective for skin conditions as well.

Weight Loss

Infrared heat saunas burn 300-600 calories in just one 30 minute session!

Here’s how many calories a 75kg person normally burns up in 30 minutes of exercise:

Sport                                               Calories

  • Marathon Running                   590
  • Vigorous Racquet Ball             510
  • Rowing (peak effort)                600
  • Swimming (crawl stroke)       300
  • Jogging                                      300
  • Tennis (fast game)                  265
  • Chopping Wood                       265
  • Cycling (10 mph)                     225
  • Golfing (without a cart)          150
  • Walking (3.5mph)                   150
  • Bowling                                     120

Some weight loss authorities believe that our bodies use fat to dilute toxins. As an infrared heat sauna is an unsurpassed expeller of toxins, it is also a great way to get rid of any fat our bodies are using to dilute toxins we are storing.

Beauty

Your infrared sauna is excellent for increasing blood circulation to the skin, which is essential for beautiful, youthful, glowing skin! A new “inner Glow” as the skin is free of accumulated dirt and dry skin cells, due to deep cleansing of impurities! Help acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns and any skin lesions or cuts.
Removes roughness, leaving skin baby smooth and soft again.
Firms and improves skin tone and elasticity.

Cellulite

Cellulite is a gel-like substance made up of fat, water and wastes which are trapped in pockets below the skin. An infrared sauna can assist this condition, as profuse sweating helps clear this form of unwanted debris from the body. European Beauty Specialists confirm: a sauna will greatly speed any anti-cellulite program! Due to at least twice the depth of heat penetration into cellulite combined with up to 10 times the level of heating in these tissues your infrared sauna can be significantly more effective than any conventional sauna.

Besides getting relief to specific areas, you’ll feel like you’ve just had a total body workout. When far infrared heat penetrates deep into the body, you will experience a refreshed mind, relaxed mood, reduction of aches and pains, improved metabolism, and systemic regularity leading to an overall feeling of wellness. You’ll find yourself gravitating to the Dome time and again because of its wonderful benefits.

How It Works

While you are using the unit, body temperature is raised, increasing your metabolism. The infrared heat (or energy) penetrates the body for effective muscle relaxation and relief of aches and pains. There is also an increase in blood circulation which stimulates the entire cardiovascular system. A curtain keeps the heat in the chamber, producing a hermetically sealed environment, resulting in the entire vertical body getting centralized effectiveness.

What do I do during an infrared sauna session?


Be prepared to sweat. You will disrobe in my private treatment room and lie comfortably within the far-infrared sauna dome (I can assist you if you need help). The temperature and timer are set and you can relax to peaceful music for 30 minutes. You are lying down and fully relaxed. I will be in periodically to check on you throughout your session to make sure that you are comfortable.

Contraindications

Medication

Some drugs, such as diuretics, antihistamines, beta-blockers and barbiturates, may impair the body’s natural heat-loss mechanisms; there are both prescription and over-the-counter drugs that fall into this category. It is important that the body can dissipate heat normally to prevent the onset of heat stroke. If you take any type of medication, you should seek advice from your doctor or pharmacist to find out if sauna use is safe for you.

Heart Conditions

Infrared sauna use is inadvisable for people with any type of heart condition, including hypertension or hypotension, congestive heart failure and impaired coronary circulation. If you have such a condition, exposing yourself to prolonged heat can be dangerous, as the heart rate can increase by up to 30 beats per minute for each degree of body-temperature increase. This contraindication also applies to those taking blood-pressure medication and those with pacemakers; many infrared saunas contain magnets that may affect the way a pacemaker works.

Pregnancy

Medical professionals and infrared sauna manufacturers advise against sauna use while pregnant. As a pregnant woman’s core body temperature rises, there is a risk that the amniotic fluid may also heat up, which could potentially cause birth defects. It is also far easier for a woman to become overheated and faint when pregnant. The woman’s heart and blood vessels are already working harder to support the developing baby, and if her body overheats, the demands on her heart and blood vessels increase further. This results in decreased blood flow to the internal organs, including the brain, which may induce fainting.

Other Considerations

Infrared sauna use is contraindicated for those with conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, central nervous system tumors or diabetic neuropathy, which affect the ability to sweat effectively. Hemophiliacs or people prone to bleeding also should not use infrared saunas, as the heat causes widening of the blood vessels. Those with fevers or who are heat-sensitive should not use saunas. Metal pins, rods and artificial joints generally reflect far-infrared waves, meaning that they do not heat up, but anyone with any type of surgical implant should consult his surgeon prior to using an infrared sauna. Sauna manufacturers stress that vigorous heating is strictly contraindicated in cases of enclosed infections, be they dental, in the joints or in any other tissues.
