1. Strengthens the Cardiovascular System
“Many of us who run do so to place a demand on our cardiovascular system, not to build big leg muscles. Regular use of a sauna may impact a similar stress on the cardiovascular system, and its regular use may be as effective as regular exercise as a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories.”

2. Burns Calories and Controls Weight

Infrared saunas can burn between 300 to 600 calories in a 30 minute session. More importantly, however, is the weight loss that occurs with those patients with chemical toxicities. These are the people who have tried many diets with little or no results. Mercury toxicity is notorious for this effect (do you have mercury fillings?, eat fish, received vaccines, etc...). Toxic chemicals are stored in the fat cells and the body will not let go of the fat until you get rid of the toxins. The body very cleverly binds up these toxins in the fat to preserve other organs. ” Drs. Bennett and Barrie, authors of The 7-Day Detox Miracle, state that “Detoxification is probably one of the healthiest ways to reduce fat and lose weight”. (p. 78) Infrared saunas are extraordinarily effective at removing these toxins through sweat - two to three times more sweat than a traditional or steam sauna.

3. Relieves Pain and Accelerates Healing
FIR heat relieves pain by expanding blood vessels and increasing circulation. Better circulation allows more oxygen to reach injured areas of the body and helps reduce pain and speed up the healing process. Recent health and medical studies name FIR heat as a successful treatment for arthritis, rheumatism and muscle spasms.

4. Improves Circulation
“Perfect circulation = perfect health”. Blood flow during an infrared sauna session is reported to rise from a normal 5 ~ 7 quarts per minute to as much as 13 quarts per minute. And the sweating removes circulation-impeding fats, toxins, and waste products, thereby making circulation better.

5. Reduces Stress and Fatigue
The soothing warmth of an infrared sauna relaxes and loosens your tight, aching, and sore muscles. Many massage therapists use infrared heat to better prepare their clients for massage.

6. Improves Age-Related Illnesses
Many “age-related” illnesses are caused by poor circulation due to lifelong, harmful, lifestyle habits. Infrared saunas help to improve circulation and detoxify the body, thereby improving “age-related” illness. A healthful lifestyle change would dramatically improve one’s chances of recovery.

7. Improves Skin Quality and Tone
Infrared heat stimulates significant perspiration which clears out clogged pores, and the increased circulation stimulated by infrared encourages an increased flow of nutrients to the skin which adds up to healthy radiant skin and relief from acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, sunburn, dry skin, cold hands and feet, etc.

8. Boosts the Immune System
Artificial fever works as an immune system stimulant by increasing the number of white blood cells in the body. Fever also reduces the growth rate of most bacteria and viruses.

9. Removes Toxins (see IR Sauna vs. Toxins)
Perspiration is nature’s way of detoxifying your body of accumulated waste and toxins. Saunagen’s far-infrared heaters stimulate the process at low, comfortable temperatures.
