“Give me a fever and I can Cure any disease” Hippocrates

Saunas and steam baths have been used for centuries by cultures around the world to bring about detoxification. Traditionally, saunas have been used to improve mental clarity, to diminish pain and promote longevity. In the past few years, hyperthermic (sweat) therapy has been studied quite extensively and several papers on this subject have appeared in the scientific literature. Through this research, it has been shown that saunas greatly assist in the elimination of accumulated toxins. Toxic metals, including mercury as well as organic toxins such as PCB's and pesticide residues, are excreted in high quantities in the sweat during properly conducted hyperthermic therapy sessions.In addition to detoxification of the body, hyperthermic therapy has several other benefits to health promotion and healing. The benefits specifically related to Infrared Sauna Therapy, a unique form of hyperthermic therapy, will be outlined on this page. Before doing so lets answer the following question..
What is an Infrared Sauna?

A good way to answer this common question is by comparing infrared saunas to conventional saunas.

Conventional Saunas transfer heat through the air at sometimes untolerable temperatures.

Conventional saunas transfer heat through the circulation of hot air. The air then makes contact with your body and warms it on the surface. The temperature of conventional saunas must be quite high to be effective therapeutically. The temperature must be so high because conventional saunas warm the body's surface rather than penetrating deep into the body. The high temperature can be uncomfortable and is not tolerated well by some people. This can also be dangerous for people who have certain medical conditions.

Infrared Saunas give off radiant heat rays that penetrate deep into the body.

Radiant heat is a form of energy that heats objects directly without heating the air in between. Infrared Saunas transmit radiant heat through invisible rays of light known as far-infrared. This is also called "infrared heat" (it is completely safe and never to be confused with ultra-violet light). In fact, the emitters used in Infrared Saunas are so gentle and safe that hospitals use them to warm premature infants.

FAR Infrared Saunas do not heat the air around the body like a conventional sauna does. Instead FAR Infrared Saunas warm the body without heating the air around it. Infrared Saunas use FAR Infrared heat rays to warm your body directly at a much lower temperature than conventional saunas (110-150°F or 43 - 66°C). These radiant heat rays travel directly to the surface or your body and warm it internally by penetrating 1.5" or more into the body. This deep heat penetration at lower temperatures compared to conventional saunas, makes Infrared Saunas a highly enjoyable and comfortable environment. This type of environment is tolerated well by the majority of people, including those with health problems that prevent them from using conventional saunas.Infrared Sauna Therapy is proving to be a useful tool to the promotion of health, illness prevention, pain management, and healing of the body and is now provided at A Healthy Way Alternative Therapy Clinic in Tecumseh Ontario.
