Sweat like the stars in our new infrared sauna. Ferraro’s infrared sauna provides a detoxifying and energizing experience without the extreme heat and dehydrating side effect.
What is an Infrared Sauna?
An infrared sauna uses far infrared radiant (FIR) heat to deeply penetrate the body. FIR heat replicates the rays of the sun’s spectrum that are responsible for photosynthesis. Unlike typical saunas, infrared saunas only heat your body, not the air, that way the heat is not harsh to the lungs or skin.
Infrared saunas encourage pain relief, muscle and joint tissue pliancy, and detox and stress reduction, among many other benefits. The sauna warms the blood resulting in an increase of oxygen and circulation to the body. The heat also relaxes the muscles and tissues, which helps make chiropractic adjustments more productive. A single 30-minute session can even burn up to 500-800 calories.
Sweat & Detox
Sweating is a critical human detox function. It helps the body make use of its ability to use the skin to eliminate toxins. Sweating is one of the body’s safest and most natural ways to heal and maintain good health.
Detoxification happens by heating the body directly, raising the body’s core temperature, this results in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside. Detoxification is important because it strengthens the body’s immune system and helps the body’s biochemical processes function efficiently so that we can better digest nutrients in our foods.
Sauna detox has been widely embraced as a healthy treatment in alternative medicine. The buildup of toxic substances can lead to a host of common illnesses. Ridding the body of these toxins through an infrared sauna detox may help relieve symptoms, prevent future illness and increase overall health and vitality.
Infrared Sauna Can Benefit:
Cellular Health • Athletic Recovery • Immune Function • Arthritis Pain • Muscular Pain • Weight Loss • Anti Aging • Circulation • Blood Pressure • Relaxation • Chronic Fatigue
• Traditional hot rock and steam saunas operate at extremely high temperatures in excess of 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
• Infrared saunas are more effective at stimulating detoxification and gentler on the body than traditional hot rock saunas, steam rooms, and hot tubs.
• Infrared light, experienced as heat, is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum and is necessary for all living things. Far infrared has the ability to penetrate human tissue providing a deep, detoxifying sweat.
• Full spectrum saunas emit three infrared wavelengths independently – near, mid and far.
• At optimal frequencies, the different wavelengths can precisely target specific benefits. Near infrared light shouldn’t be confused with ordinary red light. Therapeutic near infrared light is invisible to the naked eye and has a consistent output without extreme heat or light.
• Pre sauna session, hydrate with at least 8 ounces of water to prepare your body for an increase in core body temperature. It is best to maintain peak hydration throughout the day by drinking half of your body weight in ounces of water.
• Post sauna session, drink at least 24 ounces of water or electrolytes to re-hydrate.
• To get your body accustomed to infrared therapy, start with 10-15 minute sessions at 100°F every other day. The optimal sauna experience occurs between 100° and 130°.
• Gradually increase session length towards 40 minute daily sessions at the optimal temperature range.
• Don’t be surprised if you don’t sweat during the first few sessions. Sweating will increase with regular use, removing toxins and leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
• Listen to your body and be aware of excessive detoxifying. If you begin to feel flu-like symptoms, discontinue use and consult your medical professional.
