far infrared sauna

Far Infrared saunas are a great way to promote detoxification. At Vitalita Detox and Wellness we use an Australian made, 3 seater far infrared sauna from iHealth so there is plenty of room to lie down and relax or share a sauna with a friend!

Our Far Infrared Saunas combine the highest quality carbon far infrared panels and solid ceramic heaters, to selectively emit the healthiest wavelengths from the sun’s energy spectrum.

Regular treatment using far infrared energy can benefit our health and well being in dozens of ways. Here are a few examples of the benefits you may experience from using the Far Infrared Sauna at Vitalita Detox and Wellness.

  • Relieves Pain

    Infrared heat is well known for pain relief. Health professionals have used infrared heat lamps for decades to treat muscle and joint problems. Deep heat helps blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to soft tissue injuries. In Europe, far infrared heat therapy is widely used to treat patients suffering from any form of arthritis. In addition, it has been proven effective in the treatment of sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms, joint stiffness and many other muscular-skeletal ailments. Much of the stiffness, aches and soreness that comes with aging is reduced or eliminated.

  • For the athlete: The perfect warm up prior to exercise, because muscles relax more readily when tissues are warm and allow greater flexibility and range of motion. Afterwards it helps recovery and faster healing of strains and muscle pain. Infrared saunas are installed at top sporting events such as the Olympic games for this purpose

  • Removes toxins naturally

    Our body reacts to increased heat by perspiring. Through the human perspiration process, toxins like sodium, alcohol, nicotine, cholesterol and potentially carcinogenic heavy metals are removed from the cells.

  • Assists in weight loss and cellulite reduction

    Our body uses energy to produce sweat - 1gm of sweat requires the burn of 0.586 kcal. A moderately conditioned person can easily sweat up to 1000gms or more in a 30-minute session.

  • European specialists incorporate daily use in programs to reduce cellulite. Because radiant heat from an iHealth Far Infrared Sauna warms 3 times as deeply as conventional saunas, it is significantly more effective at reducing cellulite.

  • Promotes beautiful, youthful skin

    Excellent for increasing blood circulation to the skin - essential for beautiful, youthful, glowing skin! Far infrared therapy can also help to create a new “inner glow” as the skin is freed of accumulated dirt and dry skin cells due to the deep cleansing of impurities. Far infrared sauna treatment helps with the relief for acne, eczema, psoriasis, and helps to firms and improves skin tone and elasticity.

  • Strengthens cardiovascular system and improves circulation

    As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart works harder to boost circulation, supplying the conditioning benefits of continuous exercise. Heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate increase, while diastolic blood pressure drops, for improved overall cardiovascular fitness.

  • Boosts immune system

    Deep heat produced from a far infrared sauna raises your body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. As it works to combat the “fever”, your body’s immune system is strengthened. Combined with the elimination of toxins and wastes from intense sweating, overall health and resistance to disease is increased.
