Infrared Sauna

Envision yourself with improved health, and an enhanced, radiant appearance to your skin.

Why Infrared? steam, hot water and traditional saunas that operate at over 170°F are difficult to tolerate for more than a few minutes. infrared saunas remain at 110°F - 120°F to spend longer periods of time in the sauna while relaxing or listening to your favorite music.

infrared heat is simply a form of energy that is directly transmitted onto objects. this heat warms the entire body up to 1 1/2 inches deep beneath the skin and heats your body just as the sun does. also, conventional saunas need a high air temperature to pull impurities from your body. with infrared saunas, impurities are pushed out of the body using lower and more comfortable temperatures. in fact, infrared saunas are proven effective at the temperature range of 105°F - 140°F thus providing more health benefits to you in a more enjoyable environment. the perfect complement to any service.  20 min $25/person $30/couple

our new infrared sauna has many health benefits and a relaxing view of lake hamilton

how does infrared heat therapy relieves pain?
FIR heat relieves pain by expanding blood vessels and increasing circulation. better circulation allows more oxygen to reach injured areas of the body and helps reduce pain and speed up the healing process. recent health and medical studies name FIR heat as a successful treatment for arthritis, rheumatism and muscle spasms.

how does infrared heat therapy control weight?
perspiring is part of the complex thermoregulatory process of the body that increases the heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate. the process requires a large amount of energy and reduces excess moisture, salt and subcutaneous fat. fat becomes water soluble at 110ºF and the body sweats out fats and toxins.

how does infrared heat therapy provide the same effects of exercise?
the heart receives a workout similar to a 6-mile run in a 20-30 minute FIR sauna session and the body perspires the same amount as a 6-mile run. infrared saunas are perfect for those that do not have time for regular exercise or suffer from injuries that inhibit rigorous activity.

how does infrared heat therapy eliminate toxins?
toxins such as sodium, alcohol, nicotine, cholesterol and carcinogenic heavy metals (cadmium, lead, zinc, nickel) accumulate in the body during modern daily life. the body eliminates most toxins naturally by sweating but the process is sometimes too slow. Infrared heat therapy stimulates the sweat glands that cleanse and detoxify the skin. the FIR heat technology simply speeds up the body's natural process!

how does infrared heat therapy improve the immune system?
most illnesses are accompanied by a fever. during a fever, the body heats up to eliminate viruses and attack foreign agents. often misunderstood, this rise in temperature is a natural stage of the immune system's healing process and is one of the best ways to rid the body of chemicals and unwelcome visitors. the immune system weakens the hold of viruses and bacterial growth. FIR heat therapy induces an "artificial fever" by heating up the body but without the pains of an illness. subsequently, the body wards off invading organisms much more easily because the immune system is activated consistently by the "artificial fever". recent studies also show that colds and flu-like illnesses are reduced dramatically if treated in the early stages with FIR heat therapy.

how does infrared heat therapy reduce stress?
infrared heat therapy loosens the muscles and relaxes the body prior to a massage. many massage therapists use infrared heat to provide more thorough and effective treatment.

how does infrared heat therapy benefit my skin?
infrared heat improves circulation, expels dirt & chemicals and removes dead cells on the surface of the skin. all of these benefits lead to a more soft and firm complexion.
