Detoxification

Since the skin is our largest organ, it plays an important role in eliminating undesirable toxins. Some physicians refer to the skin as a third kidney. The deep penetration of our infrared technology allows removal of toxins stored in fat cells. Detoxifying helps rid your body of potential carcinogenic heavy metals such as mercury and lead, as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid and cholesterol. Cleanse your body with ease.

Weight Loss

In the infrared blanket you can burn 400-600 calories in just one 30 minute session. A moderately fit person can sweat one pound of sweat in a 30 minute session, which is the equivalent of running 2-3 miles; a 60 min. session would be equivalent to 4-6 miles. While it is true that the weight of the water expelled in the sauna may be regained by re-hydrating with water, the calories lost will not, resulting in weight loss. Feel those extra pounds melt away.

Pain Relief

The infrared energy released by a far infrared treatment can penetrate up to 1.5" deep into muscle tissue. 93% of this energy is absorbed through our skin. By heating these tissues, we experience a vasodilation of peripheral blood vessels which can be beneficial in reducing muscle spasms, joint stiffness and achiness, as well as general aches and pains due to conditions such as Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. There is also evidence that when used 24-48 hours post injury, far infrared energy can reduce the time it takes for your body to heal sprains and strains. It may also help to reduce pain and swelling in the body.

Cardiovascular Health

Infrared heat therapy is one way to achieve cardiovascular conditioning effects even without exerting yourself. During a session, vasodilation of peripheral blood vessels occurs which increases heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. This provides a workout for your heart as the body attempts to cool itself in diverting blood from internal organs to the extremities and the skin. Research suggests that regular infrared heat therapy has been beneficial in reducing blood pressure. Relax and get your heart in shape.

Stress Relief & Relaxation

Wrap yourself in the warmth of far infrared heat and relax in style. Feel the stress of the day melt away in your private sanctuary. Increased circulation triggers the release of endorphins, loosening tight muscles and making you feel better all over.

Beautification of Skin

Do you want to improve the tone, texture and elasticity of your skin? The increased blood circulation to the skin brings fresh nutrients to the surface. At the same time, profuse sweating is assisting in the removal of toxins that accumulate deep within your pores such as make-up, dirt, lotions and conditioners. Look and feel better.

Tissue Elasticity

The warmth will relax your muscles, increase flexibility and range of motion. Studies show, tissues heated to 130 and then stretched have exhibited an elastic elongation that persists long after the stretch is removed. This was not the case when the same tissues were stretched at normal tissue temperatures. Therapeutic benefits were also seen in working with ligaments, tendons, fascia, joint capsules and symposiums that have become scarred, thickened or contracted. Improve flexibility beyond your expectations.

Contraindications for use of Infrared Therapy

Prescription Drugs: Always check with your physician or pharmacist for possible interactions with a drugs affect due the use of an infrared heat source.

Certain Diseases: Raising the core temperature may be contraindicated for individuals with adrenal suppression, multiple sclerosis, or systemic lupus erythematosus.

Joint Conditions: An acute joint injury should not be heated within the first 48 hours, or until the joint erythema and swelling subsides.

Pregnancy: When pregnant, it is recommended to discontinue use of infrared heat source immediately.
