Infrared Sauna

IMG_0184Far Infrared Saunas are dry heat saunas that help the body eliminate stored heavy metals & chemicals without the use of prescription drugs. Dry heat is used to increase sweating and the elimination of toxic metals, organic compounds, dioxin and other toxins. An infrared sauna uses infrared heaters to emit infrared radiant heat, which is absorbed directly into the human body. This varies from traditional saunas, which heat the body indirectly via air or steam.

Any sauna can assist health by increasing perspiration, one of our major routes of elimination and detoxification. In addition to this benefit, infrared sauna can directly impact pain, stiffness, and fatigued experienced by those suffering with chronic disease.

Infrared sauna is often better tolerated by patients who do not tolerate traditional hot air saunas. Sauna may also increase the body’s metabolic rate, resulting in increased caloric burn. Because of this, it is often used to augment a diet and lifestyle regimen to assist with weight loss.

Our sauna is made by Heavenly Heat.

We chose Heavenly Heat for the following reasons:

  • Each infrared sauna is built in Arizona without glue, varnish, or plywood.
  • Only untreated, kiln-dried white poplar wood is used for all wooden parts of each sauna.
  • The frames are screwed together rather than nailed and glued.
  • All windows are made of strong heat-tempered glass.
  • Window gaskets are custom-milled polar rather than synthetics.
  • Lights are plain metal and glass rather than coated metal or plastic.
  • Each Infrared Sauna includes a venting system for an automatic, constant air-exchange.
  • Heaters are tested to assure lower electro-magnetic fields (EMF).
  • A carbon filter purifies the stale air leaving the sauna.

 

Ozonated Steam Sauna

IMG_0186
Our HOCATT (Hyperthermic Ozone and Carbonic Acid Transdermal Therapy) ozonated steam sauna allows patients to comfortably relax while detoxing. The sauna produces both ozone and carbonic acid. The sauna is designed to encapsulate the body while leaving the head open in ambient air. This prevents individuals from breathing ozone at a high concentration, which should be avoided. Patients are free to enjoy the cabinet entertainment system while receiving the therapy session for 15 – 30 minutes. Because the HOCATT houses a dry herb chamber for optional aromatherapy, a customized blend of herbs can be included for additional benefits.

How Does It Work?

During the session, ozone is steadily released into the sauna. Ozone is natural molecule produced by the body’s white blood cells. Ozone disrupts the integrity of bacterial cell envelope through oxidation of the phospholipids and lipoproteins. It also damages viral capsid and upsets reproductive cycle by disrupting virus-to-cell contact with peroxidation.

By introducing CO2 into the sauna to react with the highly excited H2O steam molecules, a new compound, Carbonic Acid H2CO3, is formed. Carbonic acid is a natural component of the body’s buffer system and can be found in blood and other fluids. It has the ability to penetrate effortlessly into the skin and bloodstream due to its highly soluble state, which increases the oxygen absorption ability of blood, muscles and skin. The heat and the carbon dioxide serve to open up the circulation to the skin so that, when the ozone gas is infused, it is absorbed by the skin into general circulation. Outside the sauna, concentrated oxygen is delivered to your body via nasal cannula. Full spectrum light rays absorb into your skin, and optional e-stim frequencies may be used simultaneously. Heat dilates your pores and carbonic acid potentiates that effect. Many studies have concluded that carbonic acid has a proven effect on helping your cardiovascular system. The carbonic acid is very effective and responsive to the heart and blood vessels. It is acclaimed to improve blood circulation and helps decrease vascular diseases.  Some diseases for which it can be an effective adjunct in treatment are hypertension, diabetes, coronary complications and minor vascular insufficiency.  It provides a natural anti-inflammatory effect and relief from pain.

IMG_0180HOCATT sessions may be accompanied by ultrasonic cavitation, in which an ultrasound field results in physical vibrations, and heat is released. The membranes of the fat cells do not have the structural capacity to withstand the vibrations, the effect of the cavitation easily breaks them up, while sparing the vascular, nervous and muscular tissue. Ultrasonic cavitation allows for non-invasive removal of fat deposits. It improves skin texture, reduces cellulite, and tightens connective tissue.

Contraindications
Individuals suffering from the following conditions should not use the ozone steam sauna.
Individuals with active hyperthyroidism
Individuals with platelet disorders
Pregnant women
Individuals seeking the benefits of ozonated steam and carbonic acid should consult their Naturopathic doctor. Ozone on the skin can display a beneficial effect after a brief exposure to O2 and O3 or to the application of ozonated oil to chronic wounds.
IMG_0973Preparation
Drink plenty of fluids before, during, and after the session. Ask your Naturopathic doctor about taking vitamin C before your session. You will be provided with aftercare instructions after your session.
