Far-Infrared Sauna Therapy Far-Infrared rays penetrate at the cellular level and pull toxins safely through the skin and may burn 600+ calories in a 30-minute period.

This is a widely accepted conservative caloric burn average range depending on the level of sauna from a sauna level from 1-9.

Outstanding Caloric Consumption and Weight Control

In Guyton's Textbook of Medical Physiology, we find that producing one gram of sweat requires 0.568 kcal. The journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) states; "A moderately conditioned person can easily sweat off 500 grams in a sauna consuming nearly 300 kcal, which is equivalent to running 2 ~ 3 miles. A heat-conditioned person can easily sweat off 600 ~ 800 kcal with no adverse effects.

While the weight of the water loss can be regained by drinking water, the calories consumed will not be." Since an infrared thermal system helps generate two or three times the sweat produced in a hot-air sauna, the implications for increased caloric consumption are quite impressive. Assuming "a sauna", as mentioned in JAMA, to last for 30 minutes, some interesting comparisons might be drawn.

Two of the highest calorie-consuming forms of exercises are rowing and marathon running. Peak output on a rowing machine or during a marathon burns about 600 calories in 30 minutes. An infrared thermal system may enhance this effect from "just slightly" up to as much as 250% by burning about 900 ~ 2,400 calories in a 30-minute session. An infrared thermal system might then simulate the consumption of energy equal to that expanded in a 6 ~ 9 mile run during only a single session.

An infrared thermal system can, thus, play a pivotal role in both weight control and cardiovascular conditioning. This would be very valuable for those who don't exercise and those who can't exercise yet want an effective weight control and fitness maintenance program and the benefits of a regular exercise.

You will need to bring:

  • Swimsuit or shorts/tank
  • Two Beach Towels
  • 1 regular towel for drying off

How Far-Infrared Sauna Therapy Helps with Cellulite Removal

Spending only 30 minutes in a Far-Infrared Sauna Therapy session can give you the same results as spending an hour intensely exercising. As your blood circulation improves, nutrients can be quickly delivered to your entire body while sweating removes the toxins that are keeping your cellulite there in the first place.

As your body notices that you do not need the extra fat to filter out toxins, it will be much more receptive to allowing it to leave through your sweat and other activity. Far-Infrared Sauna Therapy infrared rays have been shown to remove 20% more toxins from your body. In fact, traditional hot rocks or steam saunas produce a sweat that is comprised of only 3% toxins.

The sweat released in Far-Infrared Sauna Therapy session is: 15% to 20% 80% to 85%. Hundreds of our users have reported that their cellulite was reduced quickly and efficiently after only a few sessions. With all the money you will save on creams and other alternative remedies, you can utilize the Far-Infrared Sauna Therapy.

A good rule is to consume 1.5 liters of pure water with trace minerals, a detoxification cocktail, and a fiber supplement to capture the toxins to enhance and experience the full range of detoxification and sauna weight loss benefits.

In addition, the Far-Infrared Sauna Therapy can work even more efficiently when combined with a healthy diet and exercise program as the reduced toxins allow your body to work efficiently and heal itself. You will experience enhanced energy that will make you want to get off the couch - and not dread it.

  • Far Infrared Sauna Therapy Weight Loss:
Far Infrared Sauna Therapy aids in removing harmful toxins from your body. Far Infrared Sauna Therapy also offers the benefit of weight loss. Many people, from the layperson to the professional athlete, rely on Far Infrared Sauna Therapy sessions as a part of their lifestyle. In fact, four to five pounds of fluid can be lost during a single half hour session - largely in the form of water weight.

However, be aware that you will quickly gain this water weight back as you drink water following the session - almost immediately. It is very important that you drink plenty of water before, during and following each sauna session.

A good rule is to consume 1.5 liters of pure water with trace minerals, a detoxification cocktail and a fiber supplement to capture the toxins to enhance and experience the full range of detoxification and sauna weight loss benefits.

Excerpted from: Sick and Tired?

Robert O. Young, PhD. DSc. 1999

Because of the level of pollution we are exposed to and its many sources, as well as poor dietary and exercise habits, the therapeutic value of regular sweating has become immense. It has benefits for both body and mind and, in fact, is the primary benefit of exercise.

One of the best passive exercises is the radiant heat of Far Infrared Sauna Therapy which causes a profound deep sweat. After about 30 minutes of exposure, the blood vessels of the skin dilate to allow more blood to flow to the surface to support the cooling process.

The millions of sweat glands covering the body are infused with fluid from the blood. In turn, they empty to the skin's surface, thereby flushing large amounts of toxins, including toxic acids, and heavy metals, from the body and are as follows;

  • Speeds up metabolic processes of vital organs and glands, including endocrine glands.
  • Inhibits the development of pleomorphic microforms [fungus, yeasts, bacteria, and molds] and creates a 'fever reaction' of rising temperature that neutralizes them.
  • Increases the number of leukocytes in the blood.
  • Places demand on the heart to work harder thus, exercising it and also producing a drop in diastolic blood pressure
  • (the low side).
  • Stimulates dilation of peripheral blood vessels thus, relieving pain (including muscle pain) and speeding the healing of sprain, strain, bursitis, arthritis, and peripheral vascular disease symptoms.
  • Promotes relaxation thereby creating a feeling of well-being.
  • For those who are unable to exercise sufficiently, for whatever reason, the radiant heat infrared sauna is an excellent way to get the benefits of exercise without undue stress on the skeleton, muscles, and associated tissues. Such people have an even greater need for exercise and the sauna fills the bill.

How Far-Infrared Sauna Therapy Aids in Injury Recovery

Studies have shown that Far-Infrared Sauna Therapy rays increase blood circulation to allow oxygen-rich blood to reach portions of the body faster. When you receive an injury, oxygen is essential to aid in the healing process. Injuries that have already been proven to benefit from infrared ray therapy include deep bruises, strains, sprains and tears.

These injuries receive all the oxygen-rich blood that they need to recuperate quickly and return to their normal function. As an added benefit to increased circulation, more white blood cells can be formed that help fight additional problems like infection of the injured area.

For athletes or weight lifters, Far-Infrared Sauna Therapy is an invaluable tool. When you work out, you create tiny tears in your muscles that should be repaired before your next work out. These tears create an oxygen debt in your body that your bloodstream must work hard to even out.

Far-Infrared Sauna Therapy improves blood circulation and allows oxygen to be shipped to your muscles faster and more efficiently. By including a 30-minute Far-Infrared Sauna Therapy session after your workout, you can recover from the workout much faster and reduce the time that it takes you to heal before your next workout.

Improvements in Patients with Chronic Pain

A study in Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics tested 46 patients with chronic pain using a variety of treatment modalities with and without far-infrared sauna. They found a decrease in pain score, pain behavior, self-rating depression and anger score in both groups of patients, but a more significant drop was noted in the sauna group.

Two years after treatment, more of the patients in the sauna group had returned to work than those without sauna treatment. This may be a very promising method for the treatment of chronic pain. Masuda, A, et al. The effects of repeated thermal therapy for patients with chronic pain. Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics. 2005; 74 (5): 288-94.

‚ÄčImprovement in Patients with Congestive Heart Failure

In the Journal of Cardiac Failure, researchers reported statistical improvements in blood pressure, strength of heart (ejection fraction on echocardiogram), and exercise tolerance while reducing number of hospital admissions for this condition in patients treated with sauna.

Sauna may be an effective adjunctive treatment in this patients with this condition. Miyamoto, H. et al. Safety and efficacy in repeated sauna bathing in patients with chronic systolic heart failure: a preliminary report. Journal of Cardiac Failure. 2005; 11(6): 432-6.

These claims also supported by Michalsen A, et al. Thermal hydrotherapy improves quality of life and hemodynamic function in patients with chronic heart failure. American Heart Journal. 2003; 146(4): 728-33

A study in Circulation Journal studied 30 patients with congestive heart failure and preventricular contractions (PVCs), delegating half to 60 degree C sauna treatment for 15 minutes followed by bedrest and the other half to 45 minutes of bed rest once a day for two weeks.

The researchers found statistical difference in the number of PVCs as well as a statistical improvement in the subjective functional status of the patients. More research is needed for long-term benefits. Kihara, Takashi, et al. Effects of repeated sauna treatment on ventricular arrhythmias in patients with chronic heart failure. Circulation Journal. 2004, 68: 1146-1151.

Possible Improvement in Risk for Heart Disease

A study in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology suggested that repeated use of a sauna improves the function of the impaired vascular endothelial cells in patients who are at risk for coronary artery disease.

The mechanism of this is not fully understood and more research needs to be done in order to assess the role of sauna in prevention of heart disease. Imamura, M, et al. Repeated thermal therapy improves impaired vascular endothelial function in patients with coronary risk factors. Journal of the American College of Cardiology. 2001, 38 (4): 1983-88.

Improvement in Patients with Mild Depression

A study out of Psychosomatic Medicine looked at a group of 28 mildly depressed patients with appetite loss and subjective symptoms and treated half of the patients with sauna once a day for 4 weeks and half with just bed rest for 4 weeks. They showed a significant improvement in somatic complaints, hunger and relaxation scores in the group treated with sauna compared to the control group.

In addition, the plasma ghrelin (Ghrelin is a hormone that is produced and released mainly by the stomach with small amounts also released by the small intestine, pancreas and brain. Ghrelin has numerous functions. It is termed the 'hunger hormone' because it stimulates appetite, increases food intake and promotes fat storage) and daily caloric intake improved in the sauna group significantly more than controls. More research is needed on long-term effects. Masuda A, et al. Repeated thermal therapy diminishes appetite loss and subjective complaints in mildly depressed patients. Psychosomatic Medicine. 2005 67 (4): 643-47.

Additional Health Benefits Attributed to Far-Infrared Rays

Over the last 25 years, Japanese and Chinese researchers and clinicians have done extensive research on infrared treatments and reported many provocative findings. In Japan there is an "Infrared Society," composed of medical doctors and physical therapists, to further research and support the health benefits of infrared as a healing method.

There have been over 700,000 infrared thermal systems sold in the Orient for whole-body treatments, and an additional 30 million people have received localized infrared treatment in the Orient, Europe, and Australia with lamps tuned to the same 2 ~ 25 micron waveband as employed in these whole-body thermal systems. Whole-body infrared therapy has been used for over 80 years by German physicians in an independently developed form.

Passive Cardiovascular Conditioning Effect

An infrared thermal system makes it possible for people in wheelchairs, or those who are otherwise unable to exert themselves, or who won't follow through on an exercising and conditioning program to achieve a cardiovascular training effect. This also allows for more variety in any ongoing training program.

"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 a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories, as regular exercise." - JA MA 8/7/81.

Due to the deep penetration, over 2 1/4" into the skin, of the infrared rays generated by an infrared thermal system, there is a heating effect deep in the muscular tissues and the internal organs. The body responds to his deep-heating effect via a hypothalamic-induced increase in both heart volume and rate. This beneficial heart stress leads to a sought-after cardiovascular training and conditioning effect.

Medical researches confirm that the use of a sauna provides cardiovascular conditioning as the body works to cool itself and involves substantial increases in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. As a confirmation of the validity of this form of cardiovascular conditioning, extensive research by NASA in the early 1980's led to the conclusion that infrared stimulation of cardiovascular function would be the ideal way to maintain cardiovascular conditioning in American astronauts during long space flights.

Blood flow during whole-body hyperthermia is reported to rise from a normal 5 ~ 7 quarts per minute to as much as 13 quarts per minute. "The 1980's was the decade of high-impact aerobics classes and high-mileage training. Yet there was something elitist about the way exercise was prescribed.

Only strenuous workouts would do, you had to raise your heart rate to between X and Y, and the only way to go was to go for the burn. Such strictures insured that most 'real' exercisers were relatively young and in good shape to begin with. Many Americans got caught up in the fitness boom, but probably just as many fell by the wayside.

As we've reported recent research shows that you don't have to run marathons to become fit - that burning just 1,000 calories a week is enough. Anything goes, as long as it burns these calories." - Wellness Letter, 10/90, University of California, Berkeley.
