There is a wide body of both scientific and anecdotal evidence regarding the effectiveness of sauna heat therapy to support health benefits including: 

  • Detoxification

Detox from our sauna is 7 to 10 times greater than a conventional one.
In a conventional sauna the average person sweats out 3% toxins and 97% water.
In our sauna, the average person sweats out 20% toxins and 80% water!

Pain Relief
Relieve back, neck, and arthritis pain with infrared sauna heat therapy.
Researchers studying HRP (heat responsive pain) have observed remarkable therapeutic benefits by using continuous low level heat therapy for treating lower back and upper body pain.

Weight Loss
A 30 minute infrared sauna session can burn up to 200-400 calories!  As the body works to cool itself while using the infrared sauna, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate.

Infrared heat therapy raises core body temperature causing passive cardiovascular conditioning.  Your body’s natural response to infrared heat therapy is to increase circulation and sweat.

Lowers Blood Pressure
The solocarbon heaters, in clinical study in 2005, were shown to lower blood pressure from a 30 min sauna session 3 times a week.
Repeated infrared treatment improves impaired blood vessel function in patients with high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol.

Improves Circulation
Heating of muscles and body temperature elevation with infrared produces an increased blood flow.  Infrared heat assists in resolution of inflammatory infiltrates, edema & exudates.

The increase peripheral circulation provides the transport needed to help evacuate the edema which can help end inflammation, decrease pain, and help speed healing.

Skin Purification
Improve your skin’s appearance.  Infrared heat therapy helps acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, open wounds, skin lesions or cuts.  It also reduces wrinkles, makes skin look radiant, firms & improves skin tone, elasticity and cellulite.

All sessions are 30 minutes.  We recommend a regular treatment protocol of 1-2 sessions per week.  If you have specific health imbalances you are working on, more frequent sessions may be necessary.
