Infrared Sauna

Our Clearlight® infrared sauna produces the same infrared heat produced by the sun. The radiant heat from the sauna surrounds you and penetrates deeply into your joints, muscles and tissues increasing oxygen flow and circulation. 

Using the infrared sauna heats the body from the inside out, which helps to remove impurities from your fat cells, where your body stores waste and harmful toxins such as cholesterol and heavy metals.

Infrared heat is gentle on the body and provides the benefits of natural sunlight without any of the dangerous effects of solar radiation.

How does it differ from a traditional steam sauna?
Traditional saunas heat the room to 180-220°F. While beneficial, traditional steam saunas are only heating room and not your body directly.

Infrared light therapy penetrates at least 2” into your body, heating you from the inside out, at a much more tolerable temperature. This boosts your cardiovascular, lymphatic and immune systems creating a fat based sweat to help your body detox. Using the infrared sauna, you are able to eliminate toxins while energizing your body in a safe, tolerable way.

Far infrared heat has also been found to slightly increase human growth hormone production (HGH) and lower cortisol levels which aids in greater weight loss and overall better health. The end result is safe and effective infrared sauna weight loss and lots of additional health benefits.

Rest assured, low EMF and ELF:
Clearlight Infrared Sauna® models are the only ONLY infrared sauna that cancels out both EMF and ELF. Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) are energy waves with frequencies below 300 hertz or cycles per second.

All Clearlight Infrared Sauna® models offer the lowest and safest EMF and ELF levels of any infrared sauna on the market, bar-none.  The ELF levels in our sauna are 3–5 times below the threshold of concern. All infrared competitors are over 20 times above the threshold of concern.

What are the benefits?

  • Weight loss and increased metabolism
    o   Clinically proven. The body stores toxins in fat cells and this may effect your bodies ability to lose weight. Infrared saunas target these toxins. As you relax in the gentle infrared heat, your body is hard at work producing sweat, pumping blood, increasing your metabolism and burning calories.

    A 40 min session will burn 500+  calories in the average person.

  • Muscle pain relief
    o   Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscle, so they recover faster. Far Infrared heat relieves muscle tension. The deep heat of far infrared saunas help peripheral blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries. Infrared heat also reduces soreness on nerve endings and muscle spasms as muscle joints and fibers are heated.
  • Enhanced immune system
    o   The penetrating heat raises the core body temperature which creates a “false fever” in the body forcing the immune system to spring into action and start making more white blood cells.

  • Detoxification
    o   The process of bodily accumulation and storage of toxins is known as “toxic bio-accumulation”. Though the predominant storage site in the body is the fatty tissue, toxins may re-enter the bloodstream during times of physical stress (i.e.. illness, fasting, excessive heat, exercise) or emotional stress. Every organ that is accessible to these chemicals, which have been mobilized or released from the fat, is being continually exposed at low levels.

    Sauna sweating can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of accumulated highly toxic metals (lead, mercury, nickel, and cadmium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid, and other organic and inorganic compounds.

  • Improves Appearance of Cellulite
    o   Since the far infrared radiant heat of the Clearlight Sauna® warms three times as deep as conventional saunas, it is significantly more effective at reducing cellulite.

    There is a direct link between the slowing of metabolic rates and the storage of toxins in fat cells. Sauna use and far infrared heat can increase heart rate and localized blood circulation, which essentially reverses the above-mentioned trends towards the accumulation of liquids in the fat cells to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

  • Joint pain and stiffness
    o   The infrared waves penetrate 1.5” to 2” into the body stimulating capillaries and arteries to dilate, which allows  for more oxygen rich blood to travel to areas of tension and pain. Your muscles, joints, and soft tissue experience relief and healing.

  • Stress and Fatigue Reduction
    o   Infrared Saunas affect the autonomic nervous system, putting you in the parasympathetic (rest and digest) state. Just a few minutes in the gentle warmth of an infrared sauna will help you feel relaxed, rejuvenated and renewed.

  • Skin improvement
    o   The profuse sweating achieved after just a few minutes in your Clearlight Sauna carries off deeply embedded impurities and dead skin cells, leaving the skin glowing and immaculately clean. Increased circulation draws your skin’s own natural nutrients to the surface.

    You’ll see improved tone, elasticity, texture and fresh color. Increased blood circulation has also been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, lesions and cuts. In addition, open wounds heal more quickly, reducing scarring.

How often should I use the sauna?
· Two times a week is optimal for the fastest results. Listen to your body and see what works for you.

Who should NOT use the sauna?
· Those who are pregnant or elderly
· Currently have a fever or are ill
· Those with a cardiovascular condition
· Those who are intoxicated or dehydrated
Consult your physician first, if you are on prescription medication.

Can it be paired with Acupuncture?
YES, YES, YES! The sauna would be a great adjunctive therapy, especially for those with pain.
It is recommended that you schedule your acupuncture treatment first and then your sauna session. Try to schedule a time when you can go home and shower within 1.5-2 hours after your sauna session.

What to Wear:
Less is better! You are free to strip fully down, or you can wear undergarments or a bathing suit. Be sure to bring a bag for your wet clothes!
The sauna room is completely private, with a lock on the door.
Towels will be provided.

Before and After Care:
· Hydrate! It is imperative that you hydrate well, before and after your sauna session. Coconut water, which contains electrolytes, would be a great idea as well.

· After you step out of the sauna, gently wipe down your skin and allow your body to naturally cool down.

· Your body may continue to sweat and release toxins for up to 30 minutes after your session. Therefore, it is ideal to wear loose, cotton clothing. You should shower once your body has completely cooled down and you are adequately hydrated.
