Infrared saunas are a type of sauna that uses heat and light to help relax and detoxify the body.  They omit infrared light waves that create heat in the body, causing you to sweat and release stored 'toxins'.  Infrared sauna devices deliver far-infrared light wave radiation directly to the human body without any bands needed.  The therapeutic effects of infrared saunas come down to the electromagnetic radiation spectrum.  In simple terms, this results in infrared saunas causing heat and natural, positive radiation effects in the human body.  Infrared light treatment usually works within just 15-20 minutes, without the need of extreme heat.  Infrared sauna treatments increase the following responses in your body: increased sweating, increased heart rate (similar to the clarity-of-mind feelings experienced from moderate exercise), relaxation responses triggered by the body's parasympathetic nervous system.  
The health benefits may include: improving heart function, lowering chronic pain (including that from arthritis), limiting diabetes side effects, improving overall well-being.  
Some studies have shown benefits of infrared sauna therapy for people with cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue, poor digestion, depression & anger, chronic muscle & joint pains.
We strongly advise checking with your physician prior to beginning infrared sauna treatments to ensure this is safe for you!
If you experience dizziness, headaches, light-headedness or difficulty breathing in the sauna, exit immediately and visit your physician.
