As you relax in the gentle heat,
your body is actually hard at
work producing sweat, pumping
blood, and burning calories. According
to The Journal of the American
Medical Association, "in
a single sauna session you may
burn as many calories as you would
rowing or jogging for 30 minutes".
Saunas have traditionally been
used by European beauticians to
help eliminate cellulite. Since
the radiant heat of the Infrared
Sauna warms three times as deeply
as conventional saunas, it is
significantly more effective at
Repeated Infrared Sauna treatment
improves impaired blood vessel
functions in patients with high
blood pressure, diabetes, smoking
and high cholesterol. This suggests
a preventive role for Far Infrared
Sauna use for atherosclerosis.
The Far Infrared Sauna is exceptional
for burning calories, controlling
weight, and removing cellulite.
Weight loss occurs because body
fat becomes water soluble at 100
Fahrenheit degrees and the body
can sweat out fats, toxins, and
heavy metal that it otherwise
can't dispose of. Most patients
who have attempted weight loss
by many diets without success,
will be pleased with their results
from the FIR sauna. Often times,
the inability to lose weight is
associated with chemical toxicity.
The Far Infrared Sauna assists

It effectively reduces heavy metals,
which have been directly related

body ,causing poor digestion and
The far infrared sauna decreases fat stored (lipophilic)
toxins. Often times weight loss cannot be accomplished
unless these toxins are removed first.
Although weight loss due to perspiration (water loss)
is quickly regained, sending more blood to the capillaries
and converting fats and carbohydrates results in as much
as 600 calories burned during one short sauna session.
In summary, the Far Infrared Sauna will remove excessive
moisture, salt, and subcutaneous fat. Sweating is a part
of the complex thermoregulatory process of the body, involving
substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output, and
metabolic rate, which consumes considerable energy.
