INFRARED HEAT WARMS THE BODY DIRECTLY AND IS EFFECTIVE AT LOWER TEMPS BETWEEN 100°-150°F. THIS PRODUCES A DEEP SWEAT AND A DETOX ON A CELLULAR LEVEL.
THE SWEAT FROM ONE SESSION IS MADE UP OF 20% TOXINS AS OPPOSED TO JUST 3% TOXINS WITH A TRADITIONAL SAUNA. THIS IS JUST ONE OF THE MANY BENEFITS OF AN INFRARED SAUNA.
Sweating is the body's natural process to heal, and to remove toxins from the body. Infrared rays gently heat the body, increasing the core temperate, creating a deeper reaction from within your body's cells to assist the detoxification process. Infrared detoxifies heavy metals as well as environmental toxins, and also detoxifies 7x more than traditional saunas.
When using infrared your core temperature is increased. Bacteria and viruses can't survive under certain temperatures and this increased heating helps your body fight these off, giving your immune system that added boost.
A number of studies have shown that you can burn up to 600 calories per session. As your body attempts to cool itself down, it also increases your heart and metabolic rate making you burn more calories.

STRESS REDUCTION & SLEEPING
