Burn Calories and Controls Weight
As you relax in the gentle heat of the far infrared sauna, your body is actually at work, producing sweat, pumping blood and burning calories. In a single sauna session you may burn as many calories as you would be running or jogging for 30 minutes. So you lose weight not just water.
Increases Blood Circulation and Strengthens the Cardiovascular System
As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart works harder pumping blood at a greater rate to boost and increase circulation, supplying the conditioning benefits of continuous exercise. Heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate increase, while diastolic blood pressure drops, for improved overall cardiovascular fitness.
"Many of us who run do so to place a demand on our cardiovascular system, not to build big leg muscles. Regular use of a sauna may impart similar stress on the cardiovascular system, and its regular use may be as effective as a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories as regular exercise... A moderately conditioned person can easily sweat off 500 grams, in sauna, consuming nearly 300 calories."

The deep heat of your far infrared sauna helps peripheral blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries. Increased blood to oxygen-depleted muscle, so they recover faster. Muscles relax most readily when tissues are warm, for greater flexibility and range of motion.
Eases joint pain and stiffness
In Europe, radiant heat therapy is widely used to treat patients suffering from many forms of arthritis. In addition, it has been proved effective in the treatment of sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms, joint stiffness and many other muscular-skeletal ailments. Much of the stiffness, aches and soreness that comes with aging is reduced or eliminated.
Far Infrared saunas help clear ugly cellulite, the gel-like lumps of fat, water and debris trapped in pockets beneath the skin. European beauty specialists routinely incorporate daily saunas in programs to reduce cellulite. And because the far radiant heat of the far infrared sauna warms three as deeply as conventional saunas, it is significantly more effective at reducing cellulite.
Remove toxins and mineral waste
Increased blood circulation stimulates the sweat glands, releasing built-up toxins and waste. Daily sweating can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of an accumulation of potentially carcinogenic heavy metals (lead, mercury, zinc, nickel, cadmium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid and cholesterol.
The profuse sweating achieved after just a few minutes in the far infrared sauna carries off deeply imbedded impurities and dead skin cells, leaving the skin glowing and immaculately clean. Increased circulation draws your skin's own natural nutrients to the surface. You'll see improved tone, elasticity, texture and fresh color. Increased blood circulation has also been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, lesions and cuts. In addition, open wounds heal more quickly, reducing scarring.
Improves the immune system
Sauna's deep heat raises your body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. As it works to combat the "fever", your body's immune system is strengthened. Combined with the elimination of toxins and wastes produced by the intense sweating, your overall health and resistance to disease is increased.
Reduces stress and fatigue
Perhaps the most immediate relief your far infrared sauna offers is simple relaxations, as it melts away the stressed and tensions of urban life. Just a few minutes in the gentle warmth of your far infrared sauna gives you an overall massaging effect, soothing jangled nerves and knotted muscles. You'll feel rejuvenated and renewed, restored in both body and mind.
