Benefits of Infrared Residential Saunas!



Our body reacts to the increased heating through the natural cooling process of perspiring. Through the perspiration process, acid and waste residue like toxins, sodium, alcohol, nicotine, cholesterol and the potentially carcinogenic heavy metals are removed from the cells (especially zinc, lead, nickel, cadmium, etc). As well as the pores of our skin opening and discharging waste products , the skin sheds any old skin cells , leaving it glowing and immaculately clean, with improved tone, elasticity, texture and colour.

Cardiovascular Conditioning:

While the moisture on the surface of the skin evaporates and thus cools the body, a number of other changes occur in the body to release the heat as quickly as possible. The heart beats harder and faster , pumping more blood through the dilated blood vessels, thus achieving the conditioning benefits of continuous exercise.

Saunas Can Burn Between 500 - 1000 Calories in Just 30 Minutes!

Far-infrared saunas decreases fat stored and is more effective in burning calories for effective weight loss when compared to other sports.

Bathing in either an infrared or steam sauna can also aid in stress relief and also detoxification. The history of saunas is filled with instances of helping other health issues as well.

Weight Control:

As our body expends energy to produce sweat (1 gm sweat requires 0.586 kcal) a moderately conditioned person can easily sweat off up to 1000gms or more in a sauna session - the equivalent to running 10-15 kms. While this weight loss can be regained by re-hydration with water, the calories consumed will not. This is a valuable system for those who don't exercise and those who can not exercise, yet want an effective weight control and fitness program, along with the benefits that regular exercise bring.
