It’s important to drink H2O prior to your session to help you sweat and not dehydrate too quickly and again after your session to help remove toxins that are broken up, as well as to rehydrate tissue.

This is the recovery and performance enhancing recommendation if you are attempting to increase your metabolism, strength, post-workout recovery, energy levels, and muscular endurance. Infrared therapy has demonstrated the ability to excite the mitochondria of the cell, producing an increase in energy, which aids in increased metabolic function. As the body’s core temperature elevates, the heat elicits the release of growth hormone, which in turn increases muscle growth, fat breakdown, and calcium retention. In addition, cells are oxygenated cleansing the circulatory system.
Increase in protein tissue, and other regenerating genes exposed to Infrared therapy, suggests that it accelerates tissue recovery. In studies, white blood cell production and collagen growth have been stimulated with near infrared.

Researchers have long told us how the body sweats out toxic substances, including heavy metals. As long as you maintain proper hydration, the more you safely sweat, the more toxins you’ll expel from your body. And what is one of the safest and most effective methods for inducing a detoxifying sweat? An infrared sauna! In sauna detox, your body sweats out numerous toxins through pores. But not all sweats are the same; and neither are all saunas.
In fact, our Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna is seven times more effective than a traditional sauna. Our IR sauna uses far infrared heat to generate sweat with a toxin ratio of nearly 20%. In traditional saunas, you might get a three percent ratio. We’re able to offer this incredible rate of detoxification because of highly-efficient and proprietary infrared heating technology – the only technology proven to raise core body temperature by two-to-three degrees. Rather than simply heating the ambient air to draw out toxins, our sauna detox will heat your body's core to expel them.

Infrared therapy provides a deep heat that helps reduce pain and promotes increased circulation to areas of discomfort. It may also reduce and prevent the formation of scar tissue and myofascial adhesions.
Full spectrum infrared sauna heat works by penetrating joints, muscles and tissues, increasing circulation and speeding oxygen flow. By reducing soreness on nerve endings, our infrared heat reduces muscle spasms and helps the body heal itself naturally.
For years, doctors have recommended infrared saunas because of proven relief from sports injury, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, arthritis, and other chronic pain conditions.
A recent Japanese study published in the journal, Internal Medicine, showed that chronic pain patients experienced a significant reduction in pain levels (nearly 70%) after the first session of infrared sauna therapy. Pain scores also decreased significantly and remained low throughout the observation period. Researchers concluded that infrared heat therapy is effective for chronic pain treatment.
A study conducted by the Department of Dermatology and Institute of Medical Research showed that use of near-infrared heat therapy helped the production of white blood cells to alleviate inflammation and reduce swelling, two key factors in easing bodily pain. Our sauna is scientifically proven to deliver these types and levels of therapeutic near-infrared wavelengths.

The secret is out on sauna weight loss. Using infrared heat technology to burn calories is clinically shown to aid weight loss. In a recent study, infrared saunas were shown to help lower weight and waist circumference in a three-month period.
The common theme among subjects in the study was that far infrared sauna use was similar to moderate exercise but “much more relaxing.” Therefore, infrared saunas can be an effective fitness option for those who cannot participate in traditional exercise programs due to medical conditions such as osteoarthritis, cardiovascular or respiratory problems.
In addition, according to information published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, infrared sauna weight loss sessions were shown to burn up to 600 calories in 45 minutes. During a sauna weight loss session, core temperatures increase and the body has to work hard to cool itself, causing a healthy sweat.
Using an infrared sauna increases heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, burning more calories and leading to more weight loss (in conjunction with a healthy diet). Regular use of a sauna may provide many of the same benefits as regular exercise, such as cardiovascular conditioning, each session is essentially like giving yourself a passive cardio workout.
