FAR-INFRARED THERMAL SAUNA
“WHOLE-BODY REGENERATIVE RADIANT THERAPY"
What is Far-infrared?
Infrared light is part of the Sun's invisible spectrum of light that has the ability to penetrate the human tissue.
Infrared heat therapy uses far infrared light characteristics to heat the body directly rather than just the air. The experience is similar to sunbathing, which gives you the radiant heat that is all your own. Unlike sunbathing, far infrared heat therapy is completely healthy and safe. You can relax in a far infrared sauna for hours and it will never cause your skin to burn.
Conventional saunas heat the air with steam which can be unbearably hot. This type of sauna causes the body to sweat at the surface of the tissue only as well as making it difficult to breath. A far infrared sauna uses soothing dry far infrared heat that is well ventilated and extremely comfortable and relaxing.
There are many health benefits that may be gained and conditions that have been treated by using far-infrared heat as reported in the Journal of American Medical Association, the McGraw/Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology, and Infrared Therapy by Dr. Yamajaki. Most studies to date have been conducted in the US and Japan.

" A Far Infrared Sauna can help you burn 700 calories ...without lifting a finger." ~ Dr. Oz
Dr. Oz says the high temperature helps lower blood pressure and increase blood circulation. "It gets your heart to beat faster, and it burns calories. It raises your metabolism a little bit, and also when you sweat, you sweat out toxins through your skin."
