Medical Grade Infrared Sauna ~ Listed below are some of the health benefits


~ Relaxation and stress management/reduction


(The more stressed out you are, the more cortisol your body will produce.  Cortisol is a "fight or flight" hormone in the adrenal glands that raises heart rate, blood pressure, and encourages the deposit of any excess calories into the midsection.  Scientific evidence shows that far infrared therapy helps the body maintain healthy levels of cortisol.)  



~ Improved Detoxification 


(Infrared heat helps you cleanse at the cellular level and releases toxins stored in your fat cells.)  



~Immune Support 


(Detox therapy is also useful for those suffering from immune system problems that include chronic fatigue syndrome, environmental pollution illness/multiple chemical sensitivities and fibromyalsia.)  



~Improved Pain Relief  


(It increases circulation, and boosts oxygen flow to the tissues.  By reducing soreness on nerve endings, infrared heat reduces muscle spasms.)  



~ Weight Management (Infrared saunas help release toxins stored in fat like squeezing water out of a sponge.  Infrared sauna sessions were shown to burn upwards of 600 calories per session.)
