Detoxify from the inside-out

Infrared + Ozone Sauna's

Far Infrared Sauna

Far infrared saunas are great to help any:

  • Skin issues

  • Joint and muscle pain

  • Weight issues

Far infrared energy heats your body’s core and deeply penetrates your fatty tissue where your body stores excess toxins.

Regular use of 30 minute infrared sauna therapy sessions will have your body constantly detoxifying and stocked full of extra white blood cells to boost your immune system.

If weight loss is on your mind, there is great news! The infrared sauna is a powerful calorie burner. As reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association, “A moderately conditioned adult can easily sweat off 500 grams in a sauna, consuming nearly 300 kcal—the equivalent of running 3 to 4 kilometres. A heat-conditioned person can easily sweat off 600 - 800 kcal.

Read the following carefully before starting an Infrared Sauna session.

  • For optimal results, refrain from using the sauna on a full stomach.

  • It is important to remain hydrated. For best results, drink water prior to and after your sauna session. Drinking electrolyte-replacing water is strongly recommended.

  • At the first sign of a cold or flu, increasing sauna sessions may be beneficial in boosting the immune system and decreasing the reproductive rate of viruses and bacteria.

Note: Many people with heavy metal, chemical or pesticide toxicity levels may find it difficult to sweat initially.

For some individuals it may require 5-10 sessions before measurable sweat volume is evident, but continuous water intake will enhance detoxification. Even without measurable sweat, the infrared sauna is helping to eliminate toxins through urine, bowels and hair. With a little common sense and by following a few precautionary guidelines, Infrared Sauna Therapy is a safe and pleasurable way to maintain and improve your overall health and wellbeing.

Ozone Steam Sauna

At a minimum concentration of 3% and a maximum therapeutic concentration of 5%, ozone is created by an ozone generator and pumped into the sauna. The sauna is designed to encapsulate the body while leaving the head open in ambient air. This prevents individuals from breathing ozone at a high concentration, which should be avoided. Ozone degrades rapidly, and the sauna serves both to allow the concentration in the sauna to build up quickly to a therapeutic level, while at the same time preventing the ozone from building up in the ambient breathing air.

With the ozone pumping into the sauna chamber, a steam generator is used to feed hot steam into the sauna chamber. This produces several effects:

  • The body's pores, due to both the heat and the steam, begin to open, which changes the exchange potential between the ambient gasses and the body.

  • The combination between the open pores, the heat, and the ozone begins a detoxification process. Activated oxygen begins to react with substances with the highest oxidation potential, breaking these substances down.

  • As the body begins to sweat, the exchange potential is further increased, resulting in increased adsorption of gasses/fluids, and increased excretion of toxic substances from the body (via the immune system regulated lymphatic response).

  • The entire lymphatic system is stimulated during therapy.

  • The skin is deeply cleansed.
