Detox. Relax. Restore
In our fast paced society, it’s easy to become fatigued, over stressed, and suffer from pain and tension in your body. Our IR sauna provides a comfortable and safe experience for users to achieve an array of health benefits, in a private and relaxing environment. With regular sauna use it's easy to maintain and optimise your health and wellbeing.
Why IR ?
Unlike traditional saunas which heat the external space around you, the heat from an IR sauna surrounds and penetrates deeply into your joints, muscles and tissues. This helps push out sweat and toxins deep within your body, as well as increasing your oxygen flow and circulation. Breathing is also a lot easier and healthier because the air temperature is not heated to the same degree as other types of saunas. As a result, our infrared sauna provides a more comfortable experience that relieves a wider range of health concerns compared to traditional saunas. There is a large amount of scientific research which demonstrates the positive effect Infrared saunas can have on your wellbeing.
Weight loss -
Studies show that within a single infrared sauna session you can burn upwards of 600 calories. As your relaxing your body is hard at work increasing your heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate to keep you cool, resulting in the burning of calories.
Cell REGENERATION -
Infrared saunas stimulate circulation and oxygenate the body’s cells, promoting cell and muscle regeneration. By increasing blood circulation, toxins at a cellular level are drawn out of the body which improves cell health, aids in muscle recovery and boosts the immune system.
Improved Circulation -
Heating the muscles with infrared rays produces an increase in blood flow similar to that seen during exercise. Regular infrared sauna use can significantly stimulate blood flow up to twice the normal rate.
Skin purification -
Research concludes that the infrared sauna greatly enhances the skin’s healing process by promoting faster cell regeneration and human tissue growth. This will results in repairing wounds, preventing infection, and relieving skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.
Pain relief -
The heat of the infrared sauna reaches the deepest areas of cell tissue, joints, and muscles to alleviate minor body soreness to chronic pain such as fibromyalgia. Infrared technology is often commonly adopted by pain management professionals to relieve pain and speed up recovery.
Our infrared sauna produces a gentle, therapeutic heat, unlike the harsh and often humid heat of a traditional sauna. This soothing experience promotes relaxation and after experiencing a deep tissue sweat will leave you feeling fully refreshed.
Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal and stay healthy. By heating the body directly the Infrared heat causes a rise in core temperature to result in a deep, detoxifying sweat at a cellular level where toxins reside.
Lower Blood Pressure -
Infrared saunas generate a deep sweat which increases your heart rate, blood flow and in turn lowers blood pressure. To lower blood pressure it is recommended that you use an infrared sauna 2-3 times a week.
