Infra Red Therapy

What is Infra Red Therapy

Stepping into our infrared sauna is like sitting on a beach with the sun on your face. The infrared rays penetrate your skin and absorbs these rays. This increases the temperature of the body and stimulates the cardio, lymphatic, immune and circulatory systems promoting a range of health benefits. It’s a relaxing and enjoyable way to take control of your own health.

The far infrared heat is totally safe. Our heaters emit none of the harmful rays produced by sunlight, just natural healing heat. In fact, this heat is so safe that is it used in hospitals to keep newborns warm.

How does it work?

Infrared light works on a cellular level, penetrating 2 – 7 centimetres deep into the inner layers of the skin. Reaching the muscles, nerves and even the bones.

Infrared light is absorbed by the photoreceptors in cells. Once absorbed, the light energy kickstarts a series of metabolic events, triggering several natural processes of the body.

Infrared light therapy releases nitric oxide which is already in your body tissues. Nitric oxide is a key gas that aids in the relaxation of arteries. This reduces oxidative stress and clotting, thereby regulating blood pressure. Exposure to infra red therapy therefore encourages blood flow to damaged and injured areas of the body.

Our infrared sauna heats up between 45 and 55 degrees. Increasing your metabolic rate, penetrating your fat cells thereby burning anything between 200 and 600 calories during your 30 minute session.
