Sauna therapy was conceived thousands of years ago as a means for physical healing and relaxation. It works by using light to warm the body, causing perspiration, one of the main ways in which the body removes waste material. Eliminating wastes by sweating directly lessens the toxic burden on the kidneys, liver, lungs, circulatory, and lymphatic systems. Heating the body also powerfully shunts blood toward the skin. This decongests the internal organs and greatly stimulates circulation. Sinuses, joints and many other tissues also benefit greatly. Given the prevalence of toxic chemicals in our lives, frequent use of a sauna is an excellent way to support the body and prevent serious health problems.

“Several studies have looked at using infrared saunas in the treatment of chronic health problems, such as high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, headache, type 2 diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis, and found some evidence of benefit.” Brent A Bauer, MD, Director of the Department of Internal Medicine’s Complementary and Integrative Medicine Program at Mayo Clinic.
