FAR Infrared Sauna Therapy
What is Infrared Therapy?
Infrared is the band of light we cannot see, but can feel in the form of heat. Infrared Saunas use a special carbon infrared heater that causes your body to naturally heat up, on a cellular level, from the inside out, rather than from the air in between. Since they penetrate the body through conversion, there is a deep heating effect in both the muscle tissues and internal organs without putting too much burden on the heart. The results of an infrared sauna are produced at lower temperatures than a conventional sauna and are often better tolerated by people who can’t withstand the very high heats of traditional "dry saunas" or steam rooms. They are safe, effective and widely applicable for healing and detoxification.
Health benefits may include, but are not limited to:
* reduction of chronic pain and inflammation
* relief from joint pain such as arthritis
* reduce stress and ratigue, improve sleep
* decrease pain of arthritis
* relaxes muscle spasms, increases blood circulation
* cardiovascular conditioning
* clarify skin conditions such as rashes and acne, and enhancing skin tone
* reduction of cellulite
* removes toxins and mineral waste
These possible therapeutic benefits of FAR Infrared are based on research completed over the last 40 years from all around the world. However, they should not be implied or inferred as a cure for any disease. Persons with surgical implants typically do not experience any adverse effects, but should also consult their medical physician before using the sauna room.
Our Infrared Sauna Sessions are a great add-on therapy for any of our current chiropractic, massage and acupuncture patients. Simply bring a pair of shorts and tank top, and get ready to relax! We will provide you with hand towels to sit on and wipe down with after your sessions. If you think you'd like a larger towel, just bring your favorite beach towel. Although our Sauna is large enough for two, to allow for greater comfort, we allocate its time to individual use. With a glass door front, you can comfortably put your body and mind at ease.
ASC FAR Infrared Sauna: 20 minute Sessions: $20
