» Infrared Sauna and Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy is one of the traditional therapeutic modalities associated with naturopathic medicine, and can provide a critical foundation for your detoxification program.

Infrared sauna technology is a dry-sauna technology that emits energy in the form of infrared light. At this wavelength, infrared waves can harmlessly penetrate body tissue to a depth of up to 1.5 inches. When infrared penetrates the body, it causes the water molecules in the underlying soft tissue to vibrate vigorously, generating heat in the body from the inside out, not the outside in. This causes the body to sweat and release material from the cells and the skin.

The profuse sweating coupled with the increased heart rate from an infrared sauna session causes the body to burn 300 - 600 metabolic calories of energy in a single 30 minute session. The deep heat penetration increases blood circulation, softens collagen tissue, decreases joint stiffness, relieves muscle spasms and reduces inflammation.

The potential for infrared technology to benefit your health is virtually limitless.
