Benefits of Far Infrared Sauna

FIR technology improves cellular detoxification by pulling chemicals and toxins out of the subcutaneous fat storage directly into the sweat. Sweating cleanses the skin from the inside. This helps the removal of bacteria, chemicals and cellular debris from deep within the skin that contribute to many skin infections such as acne, impetigo eczema and others. Heating the body and repeatedly shunting the blood to the surface enhances oxygenation and encourages formation of new blood vessels.

Enhanced elimination through the skin reduces the burden of detoxification on the kidneys and other eliminative organs. Medical studies indicate that sauna therapy can aid in detoxification from heavy metal, pesticides or other toxic chemical exposure.

Since FIR sessions are tailored to the needed of the client, we use special care and consideration regarding the following: High blood pressure, rosacea, drug detox, multiple sclerosis, respiratory conditions, lymph node removal, diabetes, prostheses, silicone implants, or metallic pins or rods, medication, menstruation, pregnancy and breastfeeding.


The Ionic Footbath 

The purpose of the detoxifying footbath is to help alkalize the body. It is crucial to have a saliva pH level between 7.1 and 7.5 to maintain optimal health. Disease thrives in an acidic environment. Bones, ligaments and tendons can become stiff and brittle and more prone to injury in an acidic environment as toxins accumulate in the body. Drinking alkalized water, eating alkalizing foods like most colorful fruits and vegetables, less meat, dairy, grains and starches along with exercise will help you stay within healthy ranges. So how does the foot bath really work? When the water is ionized, H+ and OH-ions are created and enter the body through the 4000 large pores in the feet. At this stage, the circulatory and lymph systems transport the ions out the body, neutralizing oppositely charged toxins in the cells that are normally slow to exit the body. Congested organs become energized and stimulated to function optimally. The body then rids itself of these toxins through its normal process of elimination. The water changes color naturally because of the chemical reaction between the electricity and the salt water, not because of toxins. People with pacemakers, organ transplants, pregnant or nursing or with open lesions on their feet should not do the foot bath. The entire process takes about 35-40 minutes. The ionic footbath is an effective and efficient way to enhance the body’s ability to release toxins in your body. After the process, people often feel relaxed, less stiff and more energetic.


Electro-Lymphatic Drainage Therapy 

Electro-Lymphatic Drainage Therapy is noninvasive, painless and very calming. The therapist uses an instrument that has two small hand held wands that are Lightly and slowly moved across the body following the flow of the lymphatic system. A combination of vibration, light and electrical waves help stimulate the flow of lymph by breaking up congested lymph fluid so that it can be released from the body. Unlike the circulatory system (blood), your lymphatic system relies on the pumping action of muscles to circulate the fluid though out the body. Therefore, the lymphatic system is always at a higher risk for congestion and blockage. The lymphatic system is primarily responsible for carrying disease-fighting material to cells attacked by germs, viruses, fungi, and bacteria.

ELT can stimulate the lymph at a greater depth than Manual Lymphatic Drainage and will enhance the lymph flow with far less therapy time. This therapy can assist in detoxification of tissues, relief from chronic joint and muscle pain, reduce inflammation, reduce symptoms of a swollen prostate and discomfort from fibrocyctic breasts and supports post-mastectomy health. Basic contra-indications: Acute infectious diseases and fever, serious circulatory problems such as thrombosis, major cardiac problems including acute angina, heart attack, congestive heart failure, hemorrhage (bleeding) Deep vein thrombosis and malignant ailments (check with doctors).
