What We Treat
The Infrared Sauna at Journeys can be booked as an independent service or as a post-massage detox session. Towels and/or robes are provided. You may need to acclimate your body to the sessions, spending just 15 minutes during your first session and working your way to a longer session as your body or condition allows.
- Far Infrared Heat (FIR) provides all the health benefits of natural sunlight without harmful side effects of solar radiation, such as ultraviolet rays associated with suntans and skin cancer.
- The FIR waves are tuned to provide high absorption by the human body (as much as 93%) and deep penetration of the skin. This produces 2-3 times more perspiration than conventional saunas, which heat the skin indirectly through the air.
- FIR waves penetrate into the deep layers of the skin, stimulating metabolism as well as removing toxins and waste from the body through the sweat. The deep penetrating heat induces an artificial fever, as the body naturally counters the fever your immune system is strengthened.
- According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, in a single sauna session you may burn as many calories as you would when swimming or jogging for 60 minutes – what a huge benefit while your body is relaxing!
- Used for:
-Post- cancer treatment
-Joint stiffness and many other muscular-skeletal ailments.
Perhaps the most immediate relief the far infrared sauna offers is simple relaxation, as it melts away the stresses and anxiety of modern life. Just a few minutes in the gentle warmth of our infrared sauna gives you an overall comforting effect, soothing strained nerves and knotted muscles. You’ll feel revitalized and refreshed in both body and mind.
