Infared Sauana Treatment
Infrared radiation is a form of electromagnetic energy that the human eye cannot see, but that is actually perceived as heat, like when you are in the sun (but without the dangers due to ultraviolet light). In Infrared Saunas light is used to generate heat.
Infrared light penetrates in the tissues and cells where it stimulates the water molecules through vibrational resonance that causes an increase in core temperature and pushes out the toxins stored in the fat cells, so that they can be eliminated from the body through sweat.
As Infrared light can reach deeper in the tissue, it allows you to sweat more at lower temperatures, causing more toxins to be released with much more comfort than extra high heat saunas.
Infrared generated heat also improves the circulation in the body, carrying oxygen and nutrients to the cells promoting faster healing of deep tissues and relieving pain and, at the same time, carrying away from the cells the toxins and pathogens, with a detoxifying effect that also promotes healing and wellness. This same process is a booster for the lymphatic and the immune systems that can now deliver the healing process deeper in the affected tissues. It activates mitochondrial energy production as well, helping to improve general wellness.
Infrared heat is one of the best therapeutic therapies to provide temporary relief of minor muscle and joint pain and stiffness, temporary relief of joint pain, muscular relaxation and the increase in circulation. Heating is also good for the body especially in ridding infection, speeding injury recovery, boosting metabolism, and detoxifying from harmful particles stored in the body’s fat cells.
The Most Common uses of Infrared Saunas
Environmental toxins cause damage to the mitochondria in our cells. You are probably aware of some pesticides,and other environmental toxins. Environmental toxins cause significant harm to the endocrine system and can have consequent damage to the reproductive system both in women and men. In addition, endocrine disruptors can contribute to obesity. These harmful effects are reversible once toxins are expelled from the body and that can be done with Infrared saunas.
Delayed onset muscle soreness is due to the inflammation that is triggered by the muscle damage. Infrared saunas can help with that inflammation to reduce the affects of intense soreness post-workouts, in a relaxing environment. Other benefits that can be achieved using the infrared sauna after a workout are improved muscle performance, faster muscle recovery and improved exercise tolerance.
Reduce Pain and Inflammation
Inflammation is related to the immune system activity. When the immune system identifies something in the body that is not supposed to be there, it sets off an inflammatory response Chronic pain is virtually always associated with chronic inflammation.
Infrared saunas can boost the immune system and increase our resistance to infections.
Infrared saunas can also help relive pain in the following conditions:
Chronic lower back pain
Chronic neck pain
Chronic tension headaches
Ozone Sauna Treatment
For centuries, steam saunas have been renowned for skin purification, relaxation, detoxification, improving circulation and soothing tired muscles. Today’s innovations have improved it by combining it with the antimicrobial action of Ozone. As you may already know, sweating profusely allows toxins and other debris to exit the body through the skin.
Ozone (O3) is a gas composed of 3 molecules of Oxygen. Normally Oxygen is found in nature in couplets of 2 atoms (O2), so Ozone is insatiable and tends to give up the third atom so as to become stable in its O2 form.
In the sauna, the humidity and the heat generated in the steam cabinet will open up the pores and get your body sweating. Ozone is many times more soluble in water than plain oxygen, so steam saunas are the perfect environment to get your body to absorb and use the greatest amount of Ozone. When the ozone breaks down, the singlet oxygen atom attaches to and kills pollutants, while the open pores and sweat allow for better elimination of toxins.
With a steam sauna, you can surround your entire body below the neck with ozone. This is done this way to avoid the irritating effect Ozone has on the lungs when breathed at the concentration used in the sauna.
Athletes are more and more into Ozone steam saunas as they are a great tool to aid in performance and recovery as well. Steam saunas increase blood flow circulation, which aids in oxygenating muscle tissue. This adds up to increased production of ATP, meaning more energy for any and all the body’s functions at a cellular level. That means more stamina to perform.
What is ozone?
Ozone is a gas. It is not pollution: It is a natural product of nature and it is well known for its strong germicidal, antimicrobial and disinfection properties.
Ozone is made up of 3 atoms of Oxygen, but it is unstable in that state, so it will eventually break down in one molecule of Oxygen (made of 2 atoms of oxygen) and a third singlet atom that will set itself free but it must attach to something. A person’s Healthy cells have a natural defense and are not affected, so the singlet attaches to unhealthy cells, bacteria, viruses and the like and neutralizes them.
That’s why Ozone is used in water purification, air sterilizers and cleaning agents.
