Far Infrared Saunas: Healing Power Unlike Any Other
A Broad Spectrum of Benefits
A healthy sweat permits your skin to eradicate body wastes through perspiration. It considerably increases the detoxification capabilities of your skin and takes advantage of the skin’s ability to regulate its protective mantle and pH. However, the benefits of FIR sauna therapy extend far beyond a simple sweat.
Far Infrared light infiltrates beyond superficial skin layers and is absorbed by cells and tissues below, whereas visible light is mostly bounced off the skin surface. Near infrared is most absorbed at the skin level and raises the skin temperature, however, Far Infrared waves can penetrate up to two inches, exciting the vibrational energy of molecules and resonating with cellular frequencies. We can not exactly perceive the deep heating effects of FIR, as our body’s capacity to sense heat is chiefly at the skin level. However, the effects of FIR rays encourage bio-processes such as increased metabolism, blood circulation, immune system response, and core body temperature elevation.
The reason Infrared saunas are so unique is that they use radiant energy to directly penetrate the body’s tissues to a depth of over 1.5″. Its energy output can be tuned to correspond so closely to the body’s own radiant energy so that our bodies absorb close to 93% of the infrared waves that reach our skin. Less than 20% of the infrared energy heats the air, leaving over 80% available to be directly converted to heat within our bodies. Therefore, a Far Infrared based system can warm its user(s) to a much greater depth and much more effectively than a conventional sauna.
Far Infrared Therapy:
* Improves micro circulation by exerting strong rotational and vibrational effects at molecular level.
* Enhances the delivery of oxygen and nutrients in the blood cell to the body’s soft tissue areas.
* Promotes regeneration and fast healing.
* Increases metabolism between blood and tissue.
* Enhances white blood cell function, thereby increasing immune response and the elimination of foreign pathogens and cellular waste products.
* Removes accumulated toxins by improving lymph circulation which are often at the core of many health problems.
* Stimulates the hypothalamus, which controls the production of neurochemicals involved in such biological processes as sleep, mood, pain sensations, and blood pressure.
Our Far Infrared Sauna (FI) uses 6 carbon panels to heat the unit to a comfortable 90-145F degrees. It is a very kind and gentle heat and has been compared to the feeling one has when sitting in a sunny window on a cold winter’s day. It is very comforting and safe. Infra-red heat is the same heat system that hospitals use in the incubators for new born babies. Unlike traditional saunas that often reach 180-200F and heat only the skin, the infrared sauna uses safe radiant energy to penetrate the body’s tissues 1.5-2″
The infrared sauna infrared light (experienced as heat) is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum with the ability to penetrate human tissue. Infrared sauna therapy uses this penetrating characteristic to heat the body directly at the core rather than simply warming the air or skin’s surface. Infrared saunas have been clinically shown to increase the body’s core temperature, resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, which is where the majority of toxins reside.

You can use infrared saunas for the rest of your life and enjoy the many benefits. Sessions here are scheduled by the 1/2 hour or hour. The special we are running right now is for 1 month at half-price: 20 sessions (5 sessions per week) for $50.00, regularly $100 per month.
Let us know when you would like to schedule your first session. Payment for this week’s special is due by the end of the week (in this case, that would be by Saturday at 1:00 p.m.). We look forward to meeting you, Pam. Let me know if you have other questions or need more information.

Our February calendar is up to date. January events are completed. We will honor the LivingSocial special for the remainder of this week. Basically, it is half price for either a single biofeedback session or 1 month of sauna sessions (20 sessions) for $50. These both include a 30 minute health consultation with one of our practitioners here: chiropractor, certified nutritionist, biofeedback specialists, massage and therapeutic grade essential oils consultant.
Thank you for the info and sorry I missed your call. Can you tell me how long a treatment last or its suggested usage? How is the sauna set up…meaning do we wear swim suits, or it a private setting or area? How many treatments are recommended in any given period?
I am available now if you are able to call….if it goes to voice mail I will call you on my lunch time.
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Yesterday was very busy and we’re short staffed this week.
Sauna sessions are offered by the 1/2 hour or by the hour. You can use the sauna 5 days per week, if you want. Swim suits are not required. You are in the sauna by yourself or with a friend (no more than 2 people), so you can wear whatever you’re comfortable wearing. It is located in a private area. You can lock the door if you wish. Restroom is across the hall. Anything else?
I have a question for you. Please contact me when you can.
This is Janie Martin in Monmouth, Oregon
I left a message on your phone. Give me a call when you can
