Health Benefits of Infrared Sauna Detox
Sweating is good for you. Sweating is one of the body’s safest and most natural ways to heal and maintain good health. And that’s why every sauna is specifically designed to promote a deep, healthy and natural detoxifying sweat. Sauna detox helps you sweat the small stuff.
Did you know that sauna detox has been widely embraced as a healthy treatment in alternative medicine? The detoxification from a sauna is a natural solution as the world moves toward more natural and self-directed treatments.
You need to sweat. We ingest and retain toxins every day, from the air we breathe to the food we consume. The fundamental benefit of an infrared sauna is the unique ability to detoxify, or sweat out, these toxic substances, many of which can lead to a variety of diseases down the road.
Immunity and General Wellness
Near Infrared (NIR) for Immunity
NIR heaters consisting of high-wattage halogen bulbs at extremely high temperatures are not comfortable or beneficial. In order to make NIR heat safe for saunas, twy used NASA research to develop a patented LED array that provides NIR at a singular wavelength with minimal variability and virtually undetectable heat and light.
Several studies have shown that LEDs stimulate white blood cell production and collagen growth by increasing energy at the cellular level.
Benefits of Circulation
A infrared sauna stimulates the circulatory system, causing the heart to beat more vigorously and blood vessels to dilate, which helps cleanse the circulatory system and more fully oxygenate the body’s cells. Better blood circulation means more toxins flow from deep tissue to the skin’s surface to help with cell health and the immune system.
Raising core body temperature is key to keeping you healthy. Although saunas heat you up differently than a fever, the increased body temperature provides similar benefits, including white blood cell and T-cell production to help ward off viruses. This heat produces a deep, detoxifying sweat below the skin’s surface, where most toxins reside. Your sweat then pushes out the toxins, cleansing your body and rejuvenating your skin. Saunas are the only ones to have been proven to raise core body temperature by 3 degrees.
Infrared Sauna Weight Loss
Looking to lose weight?
Our saunas help you lose weight by detoxifying the body and burning calories while you relax in total comfort.
Maintaining a healthy weight is important to your overall quality of life. That’s no secret. In fact, a 10-year study published by The New England Journal of Medicine discovered that the circumference of your waist alone is a critical factor for assessing the risk of premature death. In other words, by maintaining a healthy weight, you may be able to live a longer, healthier life.
Relaxation Infrared Sauna Relaxation & Stress Reduction
Saunas have been designed with the utmost in comfort for greater relaxation and stress-reduction. Relaxation is more important to health than most people realize. Stress impacts not just the mind but the body, as well
Relax and reduce mental stress as part of your wellness routine. We need it more than ever today. Our infrared therapy soothes your mind by enveloping your body in relaxing warmth. Our saunas are designed for maximum comfort, allowing you to not only loosen your body, but loosen your mind. Practicing mindful meditation while in a sauna therapy session can also help with mental stress reduction. Alone time is maximized with a sauna therapy session, giving you an opportunity to reflect and move on from the stressors of the day.
Heart Health Infrared Sauna for Blood Pressure and Circulation
These saunas have been clinically shown to provide one of the best, natural ways to help temporarily lower blood pressure. In a 2005 clinical study by the University of Missouri Kansas City, SoloCarbon far infrared heaters were shown to temporarily lower blood pressure through a program of 30-minute infrared sauna session 3 times per week. The study concluded that these sauna sessions, as part of a healthy lifestyle, dilated blood vessels and reduced the volume of their inner lining, thus increasing circulation needed for healthy blood pressure.

Near Infrared (NIR) Wavelength
Near infrared (NIR) light therapy is the science of photobiomodulation which uses invisible, near infrared wavelengths between 700 and 1,200 nm (nanometers) to deliver energy to cells. NIR is the shortest wavelength and penetrates the skin’s surface more effectively than mid or far infrared. Scientific research shows that when delivered at the vital wavelength of 880nm, without extreme heat or light, NIR promotes skin renewal, cell health and tissue growth. Similar NIR LED (light-emitting diodes) were originally developed for NASA in order to grow plants in space, replicating the sun.
Infrared saunas may not only improve the appearance of acne scarring, but they may actually help reduce acne in the first place. Typical acne is caused by a build-up of oil on the skin, and if you produce a lot of oil, that can lead to constant breakouts. Infrared saunas cause you to sweat from infrared heat – not actual heat – which can help clean out those clogged pores. When a sauna session is complete, a quick face wash ensures the unclogged pores do not clog up again.
Infrared saunas are clinically proven to reach deeper levels into your skin, effectively removing toxins such as dead skin cells, oils, dirt and bacteria. Our SoloCarbon technology heats your body to the core, triggering your body to release toxins that can clog your pores and lead to a host of health issues beyond just within your skin.

Tone and Texture
In a study done in 2006,2 researchers looked at the impact of infrared on collagen and elastin in our skin, two of the most important ingredients to healthy skin. They found that both collagen and elastin increased after exposure to infrared, and all patients included in the study reported enhanced skin texture, less roughness, and improvement in color.
Appearance of Scars
The increase in circulation and delivery of oxygen to injured or damaged areas helps with cell turnover, which helps with the appearance of scars. Studies using NASA LED technology concluded that NIR LED light significantly promotes faster cell regeneration, wound healing, and human tissue growth. Human cell growth increased by 155-171%.3
Performance and Muscle Recovery
Whether you’re a competitive athlete or a weekend golfer, your goal is to stay in the game as long as you can. One of the most important aspects for longevity in sports and activities is proper muscle recovery.
Why is muscle recovery important?
Most people understand the benefits of exercise and training when trying to enhance performance or build muscle. In fact, that’s often the only thing they do. Equally important is the recovery process, or downtime in between training, when energy is restored, and the body is able to heal tissue damage and rebuild muscles. Building muscle not only increases strength, but also boosts metabolism, reduces risk of injury, improves bone density and helps with excess body fat.
Benefits of infrared light for muscle recovery
Heat, in and of itself, is great for recovery, temporary pain relief and inflammation. However, infrared light, because it heats the body from within, can penetrate further down into the joints, muscles and tissues, increasing circulation and blood flow.
Good circulation is critical for proper healing. Red blood cells carry oxygen and nutrients to the site of the strain or inflammation, which helps to create new blood vessels and tissues at the site. The more red and white blood cells that can get delivered to muscles, the quicker they rebuild.
Near infrared (NIR) is the shortest infrared wavelength and penetrates the skin’s surface more effectively than the other two. Scientific research shows that when delivered at the vital wavelength of 880nm without extreme heat or light, NIR promotes skin renewal, cell health, wound healing, and tissue growth.
NIR heaters consisting of high-wattage halogen bulbs at extremely high temperatures are not comfortable or beneficial. In order to make NIR heat safe for saunas, we used NASA research to develop a patented LED array that provides NIR at a singular wavelength with minimal variability and virtually undetectable heat and light.
Mid infrared (MIR) is a longer wavelength that can penetrate deeper into the body’s soft tissue where inflammation occurs. MIR helps expand blood vessels and increases circulation, so more oxygen can reach injured areas of the body. This reduces pain and speeds the healing process.
The longest wavelength, far infrared (FIR), reaches deepest into the body, where toxins are stored. By raising your core body temperature, FIR stimulates the sweat glands, resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat that leaves you feeling revitalized. Plus, since sweating increases heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate, you’re also burning calories.
