Day Spas and Medi-Spas around the world are using Infrared Saunas more and more to help eliminate cellulite  and toxic overload. I am so enthused about the benefits of Infrared Saunas.  I offer the benefits of the Clearlight Infrared Sauna  at  Detox Divas.

Detox Divas offers a Clearlight Sauna because their saunas have leading edge technology in the heaters. Their heaters are both ceramic and carbon.  This combination allows the heater to produce long wave far infrared heat. This long wave infrared heat penetrates deeper into your body and the infrared heat is more readily absorbed. The ceramic in their heaters gives the heaters a very high infrared output when compared to traditional carbon heaters. This concentrates the heat directly on your body. The sauna is made out of Cedar so the wood is antibacterial and antifungal.             

Infrared saunas utilize the healing range of the light spectrum.  The heat from an infrared heater is much more tolerable in an infrared sauna because the heat is object oriented and heats your body versus just heating the air.  The air stays a comfortable temperature so you don’t feel like you are suffocating as you sit in the sauna.

It is important to rinse off or wipe off with a damp towel after taking a sauna to remove any released toxins that may be left on the skin.  It is also important to make sure you replace electrolytes that are lost during sweating.

Saunas are an excellent way to release toxins trapped deep in the body. Sweating can help detoxify your body. It aids in ridding the body of accumulated highly toxic metals (lead, mercury, nickel, and cadmium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid, and other organic and inorganic compounds.

"Traditional wisdom has suggested that saunas work largely by promoting detoxification through the sweat Saunas also stimulate cells to release toxins which can then be eliminated by the liver and bowel. Several published studies have now shown that this hypothermic therapy can bring about the rapid removal of a wide range of toxic substances from the human body." John C.

Relieves Muscle Pain

The deep heat helps peripheral blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries.  Infrared heat reduces soreness on nerve endings and muscle spasms as muscle joints and fibers are heated.

  Increased blood circulation
carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscle, so they recover faster.

  Improves the Immune System
infrared heat will raise your core body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. Fever is the body's natural mechanism to strengthen and accelerate the immune response, as seen in the case of infection. This enhanced immune system, combined with improved elimination of toxins and wastes via intense sweating, increases your overall health and resistance to disease.

  Remove Toxins
Infrared Sauna heat increases your blood circulation and stimulates the sweat glands, releasing built up toxins in the body.

  Improves Appearance of Cellulite

Cellulite is a common term used to describe superficial pockets of trapped fat, which cause uneven dimpling or "orange peel" skin. Cellulite occurs in the subcutaneous fat layer just beneath your skin. Your skin is connected to the underlying muscle by vertical strands of tissue. The combination of this connective tissue pulling in on your skin and fatty deposits and fibrosis pushing out against your skin cause the dimpled appearance of cellulite.

Since far infrared radiant heat  warms three times as deeply as conventional saunas, it is significantly more effective at reducing cellulite. There is a direct link between the slowing of metabolic rates and the storage of toxins in fat cells. Sauna use and infrared heat can increase heart rate and localized blood circulation, which essentially reverses the above-mentioned trends towards the accumulation of liquids in the fat cells to reduce the appearance of cellulite.    

Suana sessions are for detox purposes.  We only offer the sauna as a series.
