Infrared Sauna

Although saunas have been popular for centuries, they are not often thought of for treatments in traditional medicine. Traditionally, saunas have been unbearably hot, steamy rooms in which breathing can be difficult. But the saunas of today have technologically evolved from the harsh, 200°+ rooms they originated from to a soothing, healthy heat. Infrared (IR) technology brings forth a therapeutic sauna treatment that is not only relaxing but also proven beneficial for your health which is why it is offered as a standard treatment at Cleansing Waters Wellness and Weight Loss Center. Infrared sauna therapy is also one of the highest growing home therapies.
American Medical Association
The Journal of the American Medical Association stated: “A moderately conditioned person can easily sweat off 500 grams in a sauna, consuming nearly 300 kcal, which is equivalent to running 2–3 miles. Infrared heat is completely safe and healthy for all living things. You can be exposed to infrared light for hours without the risk of burning. Infrared is a naturally occurring output of the sun, but does not contain the harmful UV rays associated with unprotected sunlight. In fact, infrared’s gentle heat is used in hospitals to warm newborn infants.
Studies have shown that a 30 minute infrared sauna session can burn an upwards of 600 calories!

Numerous healing and preventative benefits derive from infrared therapy. Clinically-backed research shows that the different wavelengths – NIR, MIR and FIR – are more effective than others at targeting various health benefits. Detoxification: Toxins such as sodium, alcohol, nicotine, cholesterol and carcinogenic heavy metals accumulate in the body during modern daily life.
Saunas raises core body temperature stimulating the sweat glands resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat ridding the body of toxins.
Other IR Benefits
Pain Relief: MIR can help to expand blood vessels and increase circulation allowing more oxygen to reach injured areas of the body resulting in reduced pain and a faster healing process. A NASA study using NIR heat, also determined that LED technology allows for deep penetration of tissue and increased cell growth from the inside reducing inflammation. Weight Control: Perspiring is part of the complex thermoregulatory process of the body that increases the heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate causing the body to burn calories. Skin Purification: IR improves circulation, expels dirt & chemicals and removes dead cells on the surface of the skin resulting in a soft, clear complexion.
