LED Infrared Sauna
Benefits of an Infrared Sauna
Less Dangerous- The temperature in conventionalsauna's can sometimes get as high as 235 degrees Fahrenheit, whereas infrared sauna's have a stable temperature range of around 110-120 degrees.

Improves Skin Tone- Promotes healthier skin tone and texture due to increased blood circulation. Increases the eliminative detoxifying cleansing capacity of the skin by stimulation the sweat glands.
Rids Your Body of Toxins- Radiant heat sweats out heavy metal toxins, and other waste products from your body. Thus, the infrared sauna sweats out a much higher percentage of poisons and waste than conventional saunas.
Cardiovascular Conditioning- Exercises the Cardiovascular Systems through increased circulation and heart rate like a physical workout.
Infrared saunas do not use steam to heat a person's body, but uses infrared light to heat the person directly- from the inside.
Infrared is a light source; the heat that comes out of it is a light that penetrates into your body about an inch and a half, whereas a conventional sauna heats the air around you.
While it heats differently, the infrared sauna still causes a person to sweat like a regular sauna and expel toxins. This aids in disease prevention as well.
A new feature offered through the infrared sauna's is LED Color Therapy. Each color has a different quality, such as violet for energy. The light comes down from a starlight ceiling in the sauna and is absorbed through the skin.
How it works- LED Therapy uses non-thermal light that penetrates deep into the skin. As the light is quickly absorbed, it produces energy in the cells that stimulates them to undergo cellular regeneration.
Uses- LED Therapy is used in treatments to correct acne, scaring, signs of aging and skin discoloration. LED Is used to heal wounds, burns, Seasonal Affective Disorder (a type of depression caused by the changing of seasons. Occuring usually in winter, the decrease in sunlight may disrupt your body's internal clock and lead to feelings of depression.) LED therapy also helps with many other emotional disorders which have been documented.
Cosmetic Benefits- Red LED light therapy stimulates production of collagen and elastin, which plumps the skin, minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and leaving a healthy, youthful glow. It also activates cellular activity which improves skin disorders.
Medical Benefits- Research done by NASA concludes that cells treated with light emitting diode grow 150-200% faster than cells without, speeding the healing process. In addition, LED Therapy reduces pain and inflammation.
Safety- LED Therapy is sage for use and can be used long term because it doesn't produce heat or UV rays. Side effects are very rare to none.
