Infrared Sauna Treatment

ESI’s newest feature is perhaps our most exciting piece of equipment yet! Our new 2 person state of the art FAR Infrared sauna is now ready to go. What makes this sauna so special if its use of infrared technology and high quality wood.

This sauna is one of the most environmentally friendly saunas you can find. Made from high quality reforested hemlock, it has a lower energy intake than most standard saunas. This wood heats up more quickly, requiring less energy, and insulates more efficiently.
Infrared technology is a revolutionary new way of heating the body. Infrared saunas filter out UV rays and heater deeper into the skin. Unlike traditional saunas, infrared saunas penetrate the skin directly, instead of heating indirectly through air or steam. FAR infrared technology takes this aspect one step further. FAR infrared saunas work even for individuals who cannot tolerate high heat. FAR infrared panels do not actually reach high temperatures. Most standard sauna panels create humidity and heat in the air, but high quality FAR panels remain cool to the touch. This means the the only thing to heat up in the sauna is your body, leaving you in a comfortable setting while enjoying the soothing warmth of the infrared technology.
**Sauna temperature will be set at 130 degrees Fahrenheit and client will stay in sauna for no more than 40 minutes at a time.

 

Health benefits

 

Circulation and Energy
Penetrating heat caused by infrared waves promote circulation and alertness.

 

Weight Loss
Heating the body the FAR infrared technology increases blood flow to metabolic organs. This can increases your overall metabolism and you can actually burn calories just be relaxing in the sauna.

 

Cardiovascular Health
FAR technology helps maintain a consistent blood flow and helps push blood to extremities. This helps increase heart rate, without increasing blood pressure.

 

Recovery
Increased blood flow helps reparative red blood cells reach injured regions of the body. This can help relieve aches, pains, bruises, and sores.

 

Detoxification
The heightened metabolic activity in your body enables your body to process toxins more quickly, which in turn allows you to expel them. Heightened perspiration while in the sauna allows for toxins to escape through the skin. This is why it is very important to shower after the use of the infrared sauna. At ESI, you have the convenience of bathing in the rain room after your sauna retreat.
