Benefits of Infrared Sauna Treatments

Infrared wavelengths penetrate soft tissue up to an inch and a half, warming the body and opening blood vessels in a process called “vasodilation.”

Infrared saunas can help with:

  • Detoxification

  • Stress and fatigue

  • Muscle aches, arthritis, and joint relief

  • Weight loss and calorie burning

  • Increased metabolism

  • Immune system support

  • Skin conditions

  • Heart health

  • Appearance of cellulite

  • Diabetes support

 

Detoxification

Infrared saunas can help increase blood circulation and stimulate the sweat glands, releasing built-up toxins in the body.

 

Daily sauna sweating can help detoxify the body as it releases heavy metals (lead, mercury, nickel, and cadmium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid and other organic and inorganic compounds.

 

It has been known for decades that sweating is a wonderful way to get rid of stored chemicals.1

 

Infrared saunas are also used at the Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach, Beth Israel Hospital in New York, and the Acadia Cancer Institute in Germany.

 

Stress and fatigue reduction

Just a few minutes in the gentle warmth of an infrared sauna will help one feel relaxed, rejuvenated and renewed.

 

Many infrared sauna customers comment on how much they look forward to their sauna session. An infrared sauna sanctuary provides a great time to relax. It’s like having a day spa in the home that’s open all the time.

 

Infrared saunas have been shown to affect the autonomic nervous system by putting the user in the parasympathetic (rest and digest) state, allowing the body to heal and restore itself.2

 

Muscle aches, arthritis and joint pain

Too much of anything can take its toll, including exercise. Infrared saunas can help relieve inflammation, stiffness and soreness by increasing blood circulation and allowing the deep, penetrating infrared heat to relax muscles and carry off metabolic waste products, while delivering oxygen-rich blood to the muscles for a faster recovery.

 

Infrared helps warm the muscles for greater flexibility and range of motion, while relieving muscle tension and pain.

 

Studies have also shown that time spent in an infrared sauna can bring relief from different forms of arthritis.3 Radiant heat has been effective in the treatment of sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms, joint stiffness and many other musculoskeletal ailments. Much of the normal stiffness, aches and pains that come with aging can be lessened with regular sauna usage.

 

Weight loss and increased metabolism

An article in the Journal of the American Medical Association has stated that regular use of an infrared sauna imparts a similar boost to the cardiovascular system as running. While relaxing in the gentle infrared heat, the body is producing sweat, pumping blood and burning calories.

 

This is called a “passive aerobic workout,” because although the body is receiving all these benefits, it is not being stressed in the same way as a normal workout. The body is more relaxed and is in parasympathetic mode during that time.

 

As the body increases sweat production to cool itself, the heart works harder to pump blood while boosting circulation. This increase in metabolism is also burning more calories.

 

A 30-minute infrared sauna session can burn somewhere between 300–800 calories. 4

Immune system support

The penetrating infrared wavelengths from infrared saunas raises the core body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. A fever is the body’s mechanism to strengthen and accelerate the immune response, as seen in the case of infection.

 

This enhances the immune system, and combined with the improved elimination of toxins and wastes via intense sweating, it can increase overall health and resistance to disease.5

 

Skin conditions

The profuse sweating achieved after just a few minutes in a sauna carries off deeply embedded impurities and dead skin cells, leaving the skin glowing and clean. Increased circulation draws the skin’s own natural nutrients to the surface for a natural glow.

 

Many clients report improved skin tone, color, elasticity and texture. Increased blood circulation has also been shown to help improve acne, eczema, psoriasis, and aid wound healing with reduced scarring.6

Heart health

The Department of Family Practice at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver found that infrared sauna therapy can help keep blood pressure within healthy levels, lower cholesterol, reduce chronic pain and be of therapeutic value to patients with chronic congestive heart disease (CHD).

 

A study published in the Journal of the Japanese Circulation Society showed that infrared sauna therapy reduced heart arrhythmias and the symptoms of chronic heart failure in patients with cardiovascular disease.7

Appearance of cellulite

Cellulite refers to superficial pockets of trapped fat, which cause uneven dimpling or “orange-peel” skin. It appears in 90 percent of post-adolescent women and is rarely seen in men.

 

Common, but not exclusive, areas where cellulite is found are the buttocks, thighs, and the abdomen. Contrary to popular belief, cellulite is not related to obesity, and the appearance of cellulite is not always reduced by weight loss.

 

Because the far infrared radiant heat of a sauna warms three times as deep as conventional saunas, it is significantly more effective at reducing cellulite. There is a link between the slowing of metabolic rates and the storage of toxins in fat cells.

 

Sauna use and far infrared heat increases heart rate and localized blood circulation, which essentially reverses the above-mentioned trends toward the accumulation of liquids in the fat cells to reduce the appearance of cellulite.8

 

Diabetes support

Much has been written about how infrared sauna therapy can aid and support those managing diabetes, because it helps decrease multiple side effects.9

 

These activities include:

  • Toxin elimination

  • Improved circulation

  • Internal organ cleanse

  • Infrared resonance

Dry Salt Therapy

Dry salt therapy, or halotherapy, is a holistic, drug free, natural therapy using micro particles of salt to promote better breathing, healthier skin, sounder sleep, improved physical fitness and endurance and overall wellness. Dry salt therapy also helps to alleviate symptoms of many respiratory and skin conditions.

 

Salt has the following properties:

  • Antibacterial

  • Anti-inflammatory

  • Mucolytic effects: loosens excessive mucus and speeds up mucociliary transport

  • Removes pathogen agents (airborne pollen)

  • Reduces IgE level (immune system oversensitivity)

 

The salt is grounded into tiny micro particles by a halogenerator and then dispersed into the salt room. While relaxing in our salt room, customers inhale the dry, salt-enriched air deep down into the lungs, where the healing benefits do their greatest healing.

 

The salt widens the airways and loosens the mucus, which begins to clear quickly, and inflammation is reduced, this makes more room in the airways for you to breathe.   

 

Since dry salt therapy is 100% natural and drug free, there are no negative side effects. After sessions, you may experience a slight cough, minor tightness in the chest or runny nose, but this is simply the salt doing its work to remove mucus and toxins from the lungs and airways.

Salt Therapy for Skin Conditions

The non-inhaled particles landing on the skin help to balance pH and induce the reparative and regenerative processes in the skin, increasing rigidity and stimulating cell growth and microcirculation.

Comfortable clothing is recommended for the salt room. You may change into clothing that exposes areas of skin you would like the salt to reach (shorts, sleeveless shirts, skirts, etc).  

 

How often should you come?

Depending on age and stage of your condition, 20-30 sessions are recommended for long term results.

 

The sessions should be frequent; about two or three a week is suggested.

 

For irreversible conditions, two to three-month follow-up sessions are recommended to maintain the clear lungs.

 

In most patients, after a course of Dry Salt Therapy, airways become normal and symptoms disappear. The treatment's efficacy is estimated at 75-98%. Most clients do 1-2 Salt Therapy courses a year. In between they might come back for some top-up sessions, if they start to feel poorly, e.g. they are coming down with a cold.

 

Who can benefit from Salt Therapy?

Dry Salt therapy is like a toothbrush for your lungs and skin, EVERYONE can (and will) benefit. It is a (total) detox for the following conditions:

 

Lung Conditions:

​​

​​​Skin Conditions:

 

 

 

Salt Therapy can significantly help to:

  • Reduce the need for inhalers and antibiotics

  • Make your breathing easier after just a few sessions

  • Improve lung function

  • Reduce the number of hospital admissions

  • Alleviate sneezing, coughing, and shortness of breath

  • Clear mucus and sticky phlegm from the lungs

  • Increase the resistance to respiratory tract diseases

  • Strengthen your immune system

  • Prolong remission times

 

Is salt therapy safe for children?

Yes. Dry Salt therapy is a completely drug-free treatment for children and adults. Children as young as 3 months have benefitted greatly and respond quickly and effectively to Halotherapy. Children are more prone to respiratory problems because they pick up more viruses and their lungs are not fully developed until about the age of 9. In addition, the environment is filled with pollutants which children have a harder time keeping at bay.

Should I stop using my medication during salt therapy?

No. Dry Salt Therapy should be used as a complementary treatment. People who come to BREATHE often find that they can reduce their dependence on certain medications and that their episodes are not as frequent or severe. However, you should always follow your doctor's advice and your prescribed medication regimen.

The Technology

Far Infrared Light: This is light that is lower frequency than visible light on the elctro-magnetic spectrum. It penetrates several inches into most objects, transferring heat very efficiently. Its a type of heat but the most penetrating kind with wavelengths that have healing properties. In fact, heat transferred merely by conduction (a.k.a. contact) or convection (a.k.a air flow) does not heat an object deeply, or evenly throughout whereas the Biomat technology does. In addition, the thermotherapy that the Biomat provides allows for increased metabolism. A faster metabolic rate allows cells to absorb more oxygen, export more acidic wastes & repair faster. Regular use of the Biomat has been found to benefit the treatment of chronic pain & autoimmune conditions, including but not limited to neuropathy, fibromyalgia, back pain, Lyme disease, and arthritis.

 

Negative Ions: These are particles in the air that have an extra electron & thus a negative charge. They are significant because bodies can be damaged by oxidative stress (a.k.a. free radicals), but surrounding our environments with extra negative ions helps to balance & neutralize oxidizing compounds. According to the authors of Earthing, pain is related to excess positive charge. So, increasing negative ions allows us to ground & balance, reducing pain. 

 

Amethyst: The Biomat uses amethyst crystals because they convert heat energy into far infrared light very efficiently due to its crystalline structure & specific vibrational frequency. In addition, they help to amplify the far infrared energy. When heated, amethyst has been shown to emit energy at 8 & 12 microns of wavelength. Far infrared energy penetrates deeply into tissues, increases circulation and metabolism, and is known to relieves pain. In addition, amethyst is known for its detoxing, protective, purifying & calming properties. In addition, it enhances a connection with our spiritual selves.

 

Tourmaline: New Tourmaline “Toca Catch Power” Layer…this new top layer refers to a special ionized fabric, which is powered tourmaline along with chrome and 20 other minerals infused in the fabric! It produces 1500 ions per cubic centimeter. This is combined with the ions produced electronically through additional layers in the BioMat, which output 300 ions per cubic centimeter. The total combined Ion output is now 1800 ions per cubic centimeter for a better full body treatment.

BioClay: a material that has been added to the cotton pad that goes with the BioMat, helping to create a gentler, more comfortable far infrared experience. 

Why Does It Work?

The Biomat works by utilizing Crystal Photon Therapy (TM), which works with light. This therapy is based on a physics principle which states that as you approach the speed of light entropy begins to slow down & gets closer to zero decay the closer you get to the speed of light (or zero disease). This would mean disease slows down & then reverses itself if you surpass the speed of light (negative space time). Easier said than done, right?

 

When we are emotionally or physically healthy our biophotons, which are units of electromagnetic radiation in each of our cells & DNA, are high in number. When we are ill, the biophotons are low. When we work with crystals, resonance takes place, making our biophotons very excited; glowing. 

 

An increase in oxygen also increases our biophotons. Therefore, working with oxygen-based crystals, such as those in the quartz family (like Amethyst), means we’re surrounding ourselves with photons of light encased in oxygen atoms thereby supporting cellular repair & healing. Scientists have found cells (including DNA) 99% destroyed by UV light can be almost entirely repaired just by illuminating the cell with the same wavelength at a much weaker intensity. Therefore, if we increase the crystals in one’s EMF we can increase the amount of photons inducing this powerful healing effect on the body & mind. In fact, scientists have started using various light tools to communicate nutrient & mineral information in the form of light into the body, entraining it biochemically the same way as eating the nutrient or mineral would do!
