So, what are the benefits of far infrared sessions?

A quote from the Journal of the American Medical Association, Regarding ceramic far infrared saunas regular use may be as effective a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories, as regular exercise. That is pretty impressive.

The heating of the body also helps to build the immune system. Cancer treatment research is including far infrared therapy with other treatments to achieve a better, quicker, less stressful result.

The body cleansing power of infrared is gaining in importance as our bodies are bombarded with toxins constantly. We are breathing them in, ingesting them with chemically enhanced foods, through over medicating, etc. The unique ability of far infrared to break down the ions which hold the water encapsulated toxins is a powerful tool toward better health. For those with severe toxin level issues,  drug abuse being only one example, far infrared therapy is often being used, with medical guidance, to safely and most effectively rid the body of the contaminates.

And, evidence is mounting that these toxins are responsible for the many many of the illnesses, and diseases of today. Far infrared saunas are proven to be the most effective and safest method for removal of heavy metals, carcinogenic toxins and environmental pollutants that we all either breathe, absorb, or consume.  You will not only look and feel better, but the real health benefits of using a far infrared sauna can help you to stay free of diseases in a natural, healthier way.

This is a major step toward overall health. It has been shown that you will sweat up to 3X more in an infrared sauna than in a traditional  hot rocks type sauna. This means more efective detoxing benefit.

The medical industry is coming to recognize the importance of body detoxification.
In today’s world, where we are bombarded with toxins in the air we breathe, in the water and food we ingest, and in the products we use, having a truly effective infrared sauna is becoming a significant component for a healthy jlifestyle.
