Medical Infrared Sauna

 

MEDICAL INFRARED SAUNA helps to relieve stress, pain, quicker recovery, improve cardio health, detoxification, improve sleep, skin purification, and weight loss.

Fat Cellulite deposits begin to melt at 38 degrees C (101 degrees F). Massaging fatty tissue during your sauna session will help to break down these areas into smaller water clusters which can be more easily eliminated through the pores of the skin.

We are located at 456 Cecil Street, Haileybury, Ontario. Canada

Take charge of your health with Infrared Sauna Therapy
– as our body absorbs high levels of infrared, it begins to heal at a cellular level, penetrating deep into joints, muscles, and tissues, increasing oxygen flow and circulation, reducing stress, and improving our health and wellbeing

Detox from a Medical Infrared Sauna is 7 to 10 times greater than a conventional sauna. In a conventional sauna, the average person sweats out 3% toxins and 97% water. In a Medical Infrared Sauna, the average person sweats out 20% toxins and 80% water.

A 30-minute infrared sauna session can burn 200-600 calories. As the body works to cool itself while using an infrared sauna, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate. Medical infrared heat therapy raises core body temperature, causing passive cardiovascular conditioning. Your body’s natural response to infrared heat therapy is to increase circulation and sweat.

Relieve back, neck, and arthritis pain with infrared sauna heat therapy. Researchers studying HRP (Heat Responsive Pain) have observed remarkable therapeutic benefits by using continuous low-level heat therapy for treating lower back and upper body pain, all conditions that fall under the HRP classification.

Studies have shown to lower blood pressure from a 30-minute sauna session three times a week. Repeated infrared treatment improves impaired blood vessel functions in patients with high blood pressure. This suggests a preventive role for sauna use for arteriosclerosis.

Heating of muscles with infrared produces an increased blood flow level similar to that seen during exercise. Body temperature elevation also produces an increase in blood flow. The increased peripheral circulation provides the transport needed to help reduce inflammation, decrease pain, and speed healing.

Improve your skin’s appearance with regular use of an infrared sauna. Open wounds heal quicker with reduced scarring. Infrared heat therapy helps acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, and skin lesions or cuts. It also reduces wrinkles, makes skin look radiant, firms, and improves skin tone and elasticity. Regular use may also help reduce cellulite trapped beneath the skin, lessen the appearance of scars, and help burns heal significantly.

Cardiovascular 

Starts at a high intensity to increase heart rate and cardiac output then lowers to sustain heart rate level. Circulation increases to promote healthy blood pressure.

Cabin Temperature: Medium/High

Pain relief

An infrared blend provides natural pain relief by reducing inflammation and swelling while near-infrared penetrates the tissue to promote cellular repair at a medium, constant intensity level.

Cabin Temperature: High

Weight loss

Starts at a high intensity to stimulate the cardiovascular system then reduces to a medium level. As the body works to cool itself, there is an increase in heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate similar to exercise. Studies have shown that a 30 min infrared session can burn up to 600 calories.

Cabin Temperature: Medium/High

Detoxification

Starts at a high intensity to increases the body’s core temperature then reduces to a low, comfortable intensity level. IR combination improves vascular access flow to reach toxins at the cellular level.

Cabin Temperature: Medium

Relaxation

Far, mid and near-infrared rays induce deep relaxation as they relieve muscle tension at a low, comfortable intensity promoting overall stress reduction with regular use.

Cabin Temperature: Low

Anti-aging 

A low, constant intensity level penetrates tissue to help with various skin concerns (acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, cuts, and more). Near-infrared improves overall skin tone, elasticity, and firmness promoting anti-aging benefits.

Cabin Temperature: Low

Chromotherapy

Chromotherapy is the science of using colours to adjust body vibrations to frequencies that result in health and harmony. Each colour possesses frequencies of a specific vibration, and each vibration is related to different physical symptoms. Chromotherapy works on various energy points to help balance your body through the full spectrum of visible light, each colour of which addresses a distinct need.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

If any of the below apply to you, consult your physician prior to sauna use:

✔ Medications – Individuals who are using prescription drugs should seek the advice of their personal physician since some medications may induce drowsiness, while others may affect heart rate, blood pressure, and circulation. Diuretics, barbiturates, and beta-blockers may impair the body’s natural heat loss mechanisms. Anticholinergics such as amitriptyline may inhibit sweating and can predispose individuals to heat rash or to a lesser extent, heatstroke. Some over-the-counter drugs, such as antihistamines, may also cause the body to be more prone to heatstroke.

✔ Chronic Conditions / Diseases Associated With Reduced Ability To Sweat Or Perspire – Multiple Sclerosis, Central Nervous System Tumors, and Diabetes with Neuropathy are conditions that are associated with impaired sweating. Consult a physician.

✔ Cardiovascular Issues, Obesity or Diabetes – Individuals suffering from obesity or with a medical history of heart disease, low or high blood pressure, circulatory problems, or diabetes should consult a physician prior to use. Heat stress increases cardiac output and blood flow in an effort to transfer internal body heat to the outside environment via the skin (perspiration) and respiratory system. This takes place primarily due to major changes in the heart rate, which has the potential to increase by thirty (30) beats per minute for each degree increase in core body temperature.

✔ Alcohol & Drug Abuse – Contrary to popular belief, it is not advisable to attempt to “sweat out” a hangover. Alcohol intoxication decreases a person’s judgment; therefore, he/she may not realize when the body has a negative reaction to high heat. Alcohol also increases the heart rate, which may be further increased by heat stress. The use of alcohol, drugs, or medications prior to a sauna session may lead to unconsciousness.

✔ Elderly – The ability to maintain core body temperature decreases with age. This is primarily due to circulatory conditions and decreased sweat gland function. The body must be able to activate its natural cooling processes in order to maintain core body temperature. If elderly, operate at a lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time.

✔ Children – The core body temperature of children rises much faster than adults. This occurs due to a higher metabolic rate per body mass, limited circulatory adaptation to increased cardiac demands, and the inability to regulate body temperature by sweating. When using with a child, operate at a lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time.

✔ Hemophiliacs / Individuals Prone To Bleeding – The use of infrared saunas should be avoided by anyone who is predisposed to bleeding.

✔ Fever & Insensitivity to Heat – Individuals with insensitivity to heat or who have a fever should not use the sauna until the fever subsides.

✔ Pregnancy – Pregnant women should consult a physician before using an infrared sauna.

✔ Menstruation – Heating of the low back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily increase menstrual flow.

✔ Joint Injury – Recent (acute) joint injury should not be heated for the first 48 hours or until the swollen symptoms subside. Joints that are chronically hot and swollen may respond poorly to vigorous heating of any kind.

✔ Implants – Metal pins, rods, artificial joints or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared waves and thus are not heated by this system. Nevertheless, you should consult your physician prior to using.

✔ Communicable skin diseases – warts, scabies ext. Even though the warm-up time of the sauna – before the subject enters – is said to desiccate bacteria and thereby sterilize the sauna, we would ask that any potential participants who have any communicable skin diseases, refrain from using this sauna.

✔ Unstable angina, recent myocardial infarction (30 days), and severe aortic stenosis.

IN THE RARE EVENT THAT YOU EXPERIENCE PAIN OR DISCOMFORT, IMMEDIATELY DISCONTINUE SAUNA USE.

WARNINGS

✔ Get well-hydrated before, during, and after each session (2 liters of water/day).
✔ Avoid heavy and high caloric foods throughout the protocol.
✔ Avoid eating some noxious and/or controversial things temporally.
✔ Promote healthy and unprocessed food (vegetal, fresh, and varied).
✔ Minimize your stress (emotional, psychological, and mental).
✔ Oxygenate your body (move and walk outside).
✔ Take essential supplements.
✔ Stop the session in case of intense and persistent discomfort.
✔ Avoid immersing open and bleeding wounds in bathwater.
✔ Avoid carrying large metal or electronic objects.
✔ Avoid late sessions if this causes a strong revival of vitality.
✔ Clean the main unit with a damp cloth without any chemical product.
✔ Never submerge the main unit in water and handle it delicately.
✔ Operates simultaneously and only with the heating belt (not the ZAPPER).
✔ Does not cause any harmful side effects.

SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE

HOW TO PREPARE

Please arrive 15 minutes before your appointment and check-in. All sauna sessions are private.

Ensure your cell phone or any other devices are either turned off or set to silent.

Wait at least 1-2 hours after eating before beginning a sauna session. This allows your body to attain the best detoxification results. Hydrate with at least 8 oz. of water to prepare your body for an increase in core temperature.

Do not apply makeup, skin lotions, oils, or perfume before or during your sauna session as this will inhibit sweating.

Bring your bathing suit, we provide you with a body wrap or robe and a towel to place on the bench seat to absorb perspiration during your session.

Is not recommended to have a sauna session when menstruating.

Wait at least 72 hours if you have applied artificial tanner.

Stretching your arms, legs, and back area during your session creates more body flexibility. Massage congested and “knotty” muscle areas to help alleviate pain and tightness.

Wipe off sweat during your session to promote your body to sweat more.

After the sauna, skip most oils, lotions, and creams as many contain chemicals that clog your pores.

Relax for 10-15 minutes after a sauna session to allow your body to readjust.

Rehydrate with at least 24 oz. of water or electrolyte drink.

COMPLIMENTARY

There is complimentary coffee, tea, and water available. Please let Rollie know what you would like.

WASHROOM

The washroom is at the top of the stairs.

SCENTS

Essential Oils for the diffuser are available inside my office door. There should be a glass water bottle next to the diffuser.

Feel free to light the candles in the room, should you choose, and extinguish them when you leave.

WHAT TO EXPECT

You may not sweat much during your first 2-3 sauna sessions. This is normal for many people, as they haven’t had a recent history of sweating and it takes a few sessions to “retrain” the body to do what comes naturally. Take care not to overheat during your first few sessions. As the body continues to adjust, sweating can increase dramatically and body temperature regulation becomes more effective. An increase of up to 50% above the resting pulse is safe unless a heart condition requires keeping it lower. Over time, you will begin to sweat more quickly and at a lower temperature setting as your body adjusts to your sauna routine.

Healing Reactions are temporary symptoms associated with eliminating toxic substances, healing chronic infections, or metabolic changes in the body. They are an important function of all deep healing methods. These short-lived “flare-ups” are generally short-lived and mild and are positive signs that deep healing is occurring. Symptoms may include headache, muscle pain, odors, and fatigue.

Fat and Cellulite deposits begin to melt at 38 degrees C (101 degrees F). Massaging fatty tissue during your sauna session will help to break down these areas into smaller water clusters which can be more easily eliminated through the pores of the skin.
