Toss those pain pills!

Infrared wavelengths penetrate inches into the body helping relieve aches & pains, and tension in joints & muscles through the release of anti-inflammatory hormones like noradrenaline & adrenaline. 

Anti Aging

A study published in The Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy showed significant improvements in skin appearance after just 12 weeks of sauna skin therapy using infrared technology.

IR saunas help your body produce collagen to help reduce fine lines & wrinkles.

Muscle Growth

Sauna use promote muscle growth & longevity as well as the release of human growth hormone (HGH).  

During a sauna session, your body releases massive amounts of heat shock proteins (HSPs). These HSPs help prevent oxidative stress (a cause of muscle breakdown) by scavenging free radicals and maintaining healthy glutathione levels.

They've also been shown to repair damaged proteins that, otherwise, would likely be destroyed by the body.

Blood Pressure

Repeated infrared sauna treatments have improved impaired blood vessel functions in patients with high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. This suggests a preventive role for infrared sauna use for arteriosclerosis.

In a clinical studies have shown far infrared heaters to lower blood pressure through a program of 30 minute infrared sauna session 3 times per week.
