Benefits of the IR Sauna
Far Infrared Sauna Therapy
Far infrared waves penetrate deep into our body for a deep heating action which allows for the body to activate the sweat glands. The sweat glands are one of only a few mechanisms that the body has to naturally eliminate toxins. The skin is the largest organ in the human body and provides a great medium for elimination.
The far infrared rays consist of similar wavelengths as that which is emitted naturally by the human body. This is one potential explanation of why many feel energetically rejuvenated and balanced from contact with far infrared waves. By stimulating areas of the body underneath the skin, far infrared waves help improve blood circulation and recovery from fatigue.
Infrared Saunas use Far Infrared energy to penetrate the body's tissue. Tests have shown that the energy output is tuned so closely to the body's own radiant energy that our bodies absorb as much as 93% of the far infrared waves that reach our skin. By comparison, conventional saunas must rely only on indirect means of heat: first, on convection (air currents) and then, conduction (direct contact of hot air with the skin) to produce its heating effect.
Due to this penetration, our fat cells specifically become activated and release toxins they hold onto; toxins such as BPA, heavy metals and other fat soluble toxins. Sweat created by indirect means (such as a normal dry sauna or steam room), usually contains about 97% water, whereas a far-infrared sauna usually stimulates sweat that contains only 80% water and the rest contains these toxins--making it a much more effective means of detox.

- Dr. Lily M. Kuehne, D.C. and Mark J. Kuehne, L.Ac.
I have been going to Dr. Lily for my chiropractic needs the last few years and she always has me leaving feeling so great. I have been sick the last two days with a head cold and my neck and head have been a mess, but after just an hour of leaving her office I already feel so much better and actually have an appetite again. She even did specific adjustments for all of my sinuses and my breathing is much better and I finally feel relaxed for the first time in days. Thanks Lily!
