Muscle Recovery & Relief

Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscle, so they recover faster. (study)

Muscles relax best when tissues are warm, for greater flexibility and range of motion. Far Infrared heat relieves muscle tension. The deep heat of far infrared saunas help peripheral blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries.  Infrared heat also reduces soreness on nerve endings and muscle spasms as muscle joints and fibers are heated.


One of the biggest infrared sauna health benefits is its ability to increase your blood circulation and stimulate the sweat glands, releasing built-up toxins in the body. The direct infrared wavelengths gently vibrate the fat cells where many of our toxins are quarantined.  This vibration creates a heating response and helps the sweat glands eliminate toxins/waste from the fat cells!

Daily IR sauna sweating can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of accumulated highly toxic metals and chemicals. Yes we do sweat out toxins! (study review)

Cardiovascular Benefits 

The infrared saunas induce a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and helps circulation. A Finnish study of 2300 people showed a massive reduction of fatal heart disease (almost 50%!) with those that utilized saunas 4x per week or more.

Improves Skin

The near-infrared wavelengths are the most effective wavelengths for healing the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. Near-infrared treatments stimulate collagen production to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin tone. Far infrared wavelengths target deeper down, removing toxins that can have a negative impact on your skin.

Weight Management

As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories. study

While everyone’s conditioning is different, a 150-lb person usually burns around 300 calories jogging or swimming for 30 minutes, the infrared sauna helps get rid of 400-600 calories in a one 30 minute session, according to Dr. Masakazu Imamura, MD study, published in the Journal of American College of Cardiology in 2001.
