  Infrared Sauna Therapy


If you are accustomed to thinking of a sauna as just a luxury or recreational item, think again. The Thermal Life® Far Infrared Poplar Sauna is recognized by health practitioners worldwide as one of the most effective methods of removing chemical and heavy metal toxins from the human body.

The extraordinary health benefits of a
Thermal Life® Far Infrared Therapy Sauna include:

  • Superior Detoxification: Removes Heavy Metals & Fat-stored Toxins
  • Increased Cardiovascular Conditioning
  • Stimulated Immune System
  • Improved Circulation
  • Pain Relief
  • Weight Loss and Cellulite Reduction
  • Beautiful Skin
  • Stress Reduction

Recommended by thousands of doctors nationwide, the Thermal Life Far Infrared Sauna is a critical step in restoring good health to those who suffer from allergies, acne, brain fog, fatigue, fibromyalgia, depression, mood swings, frequent colds and flu and hundreds of other symptoms that indicate heavy metal (including mercury) or chemical toxicity.

Far Infra Red Sauna's are a relaxing and effective way of helping you treat the conditions which may be causing you ill health. Far Infra Red Sauna's use infra red energy to penetrate the bodies tissue to a depth of over 4 cm. The energy output is so closely tuned to the bodies own radiation energy that our bodies absorb close to 93 % of the infra red waves that reach our skin.

What is the difference between a conventional
sauna and infrared sauna?

To compare, traditional conventional saunas rely on a stove to heat the air first (as hot as 220 °F) to produce it's heating effects. Far infrared sauna uses 85°-120°F. The infrared heat rays warm the body directly. Its radiant heat reaches deep, to be absorbed by your body as much as 1.5 inches (45 mm) below the skin, while producing 2 to 3 times more sweat than other saunas at a much lower temperature. The body directly absorbs as much as 93% of the heat generated by the far infrared sauna.

What is Far Infra Red Sauna:

Infra-Red Heat is simply a form of energy that is directly transmitted onto objects because of its specific wavelength. This band of light is not visible to human eyes but can be seen with special cameras, however every person can feel this type of light in the form of heat. The sun’s warmth has the same principals. It produces infrared energy - but without ultraviolet rays. The infrared heat rays warm the body directly.

How Does It Work:

As the body temperature rises by infrared heat, perspiration occurs and blood circulation increases. The muscles, organs, tissues and cells are stimulated by heat to sweat, and toxic waste, which includes heavy metals, is removed from the body through perspiration.

Burns Calories and Controls Weight:

As a person relaxes in the far infrared sauna, the body is actually hard at work, producing sweat, pumping blood - and burning calories. According to a Journal of the American Medical Association report, in a single sauna session person may burn as many calories as one would rowing or jogging for 30 minutes.

One can burn from 300 to 600 and to 900 calories per session! Imagine that!

As the 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 who don't exercise and those who can not exercise, yet want an effective weight those control and fitness program, along with the benefits that regular exercise bring.

Relieves pain and Stiffness:

The deep heat of the far infrared sauna helps peripheral blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries. Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscle, so they recover faster. Muscles relax most readily when tissues are warm, for greater flexibility and range of motion.

Improves the Immune System:

Sauna's deep heat raises your body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. As it works to combat the "fever," the body's immune system is strengthened. Combined with the elimination of toxins and wastes produced by the intense sweating, the overall health and resistance to disease is increased.
Increases Blood Circulation and Strengthens Cardiovascular System:

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.

As the body increases sweat production to cool itself, the heart works harder pumping blood at a greater rate to boost 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 systems, 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 gms. in sauna, consuming nearly 300 calories."

Removes Toxins:

Increased blood circulation stimulates the sweat glands, releasing built-up toxins and waste. Daily sweating can help detoxify the body as it rids itself of an accumulation of potentially carcinogenic heavy metals (lead, mercury, nickel, cadmium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid and cholesterol.

Reduces Stress and Fatigue:

Perhaps the most immediate relief this far infrared sauna offers is simple relaxation, as it melts away the stresses and tensions of urban life. infrared sauna gives an overall massaging effect, soothing jangled nerves and knotted muscles.

Improves Skin Condition:

The profuse sweating achieved after just a few minutes in far infrared sauna carries off deeply imbedded impurities and dead skin cells, leaving the skin glowing and immaculately clean, Increased circulation draws the skin's own natural nutrients to the surface. It improves tone, elasticity, texture and fresh color of the skin. Increased blood circulation has also been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, lesions and cuts. In addition, open wounds may heal more quickly, reducing scarring.
