Life can be stressful. You need to have a special place to take a break. A Relaxed Fitness ® Infrared Sauna can be your daily escape. You owe it to you and your health
We live in a world where we are overpowered by toxins and pollutants. Almost everything we eat, drink or breathe has toxins and pollutants in it. Examples of a few of these toxins are mercury, lead, nicotine, alcohol, sodium and cholesterol. As a result our bodies are constantly trying to detoxify but cannot keep up.Therefore, we store toxins until we can dispose of them. Eventually our bodies get overpowered, shut down and we get sick. Infrared heat penetrates 3 inches into the body increasing blood circulation and cellular activity. It stimulates a fever causing the immune system to spring into action. As our heart rate increases and we start to sweat, toxins are released from our organs and cells and dispersed from our body through the skin. The skin is our largest organ, eliminating waste through perspiration. Heat causes toxins to be released from your organs and cells into the lymphatic fluid. Since sweat is manufactured lymphatic fluid, the toxins from the lymph are released when your body perspires. The infrared technology allows for removal of the toxins stored in our organs and cells. Therefore, detoxifying can help us be healthier, live longer and enhance our quality of life. You will feel cleansed and energized after your session. Detoxifying is a very important health benefit from an infrared sauna.
We don't sweat like we use to. Our sedentary lifestyles and the use of air conditioning reduce the opportunities that our bodies have to sweat out toxins. Further, the chemicals found in skin lotions, soaps, creams and deodorants also affect the rate that we perspire. Repeated use of a sauna slowly disperses toxins from the body without rigorous exercise, which may be difficult or impossible for a segment of the population.
We don't suggest that a sauna is the ticket to overnight weight loss. A sauna can help play a role in maintaining a healthy weight or losing a few pounds, especially when combined with a regular exercise program and healthy eating. It is estimated that the average sauna user can easily burn close to 600 calories in one 30-minute session. This is equivalent to running a couple miles. Your body is hard at work trying to maintain a constant core temperature. This speeds up the metabolic process of vital organs and endocrine glands resulting in substantial caloric loss in a sauna session. Even though your body may be hard at work you feel calm and rejuvenated. So just relax and lose weight. Sorry, we can’t say no sweat.
Reduce Stress and Fatigue
In today's fast-paced world, we rarely take time for ourselves to just let our bodies relax. It has been proven time and time again that stress plays a huge role in our physical health and mental well being.

Many people experience a tremendous amount of stress in their life with no place to escape and relieve the tensions of the day. Your sauna can be the ultimate getaway from reality and stress. Spending minutes in the warmth of a Relaxed Fitness ® Infrared Sauna gives you an overall massaging effect, while comforting knotted muscles and frazzled nerves. Not only will your body be revived and feel relaxed, but your mind will be rejuvenated and filled with positive thoughts.
Sauna sessions will help reduce the unattractive look of cellulite on the body. Cellulite is a gel-like substance that is formed from fat, waste, and water build ups. These substances get trapped in fat like pockets underneath the skin creating the unsightly appearance of cellulite. Sweating will clear this form of unwanted debris from your body by exfoliating it through the skin. Sauna sessions are effective in cellulite removal when used in conjuction with a program that includes diet and massage.
Sauna use has many positive benefits for our skin. It releases our skin of many of the toxins that accumulate as a result of chemical-laden soaps, conditioners, makeup, etc., that we use. The increased blood circulation to the skin brings more nutrients to the surface, thus promoting healthy tone and texture. A sauna session provides a mild cleansing of the skin, and is becoming more prevalent in treating acne and scaring on the face. It opens pores that have been clogged to release the debris, and the warmth of the infrared heat will gradually soften scars on the body. The appearance of your skin reveals a lot about you, so why not have it look smooth and healthy.
During a sauna session, the heart rate increases providing mild cardiovascular conditioning. The thermal effect within the deep layers of the tissues causes blood vessels and capillaries to dilate, promoting better blood circulation.
Heat therapy penetrates deep into the muscle tissue relieving aches, pain, stiffness and muscle spasms. In addition, by stimulating peripheral blood vessels and enhancing the body's delivery of oxygen to joints and extremities, it is believed to speed the healing of sprains and strains relieving pain and reducing the time it takes the body to recover from an injury. Sauna therapy is also recommended by many therapists and physicians to treat inflammation and chronic pain like that experienced by individuals with lyme disease and fibromyalgia.
To replenish your energy, enjoy a relaxing sauna session. The warm, penetrating heat that detoxifies your body will boost your energy. Cellular activity is instantly invigorated, resulting in better blood circulation and overall improved metabolism. When you have no energy and need to be rejuvenated, escape to your sauna paradise. Your sauna is a peaceful place to relax, feel healthy and get energized. Enjoy!!
Boost Immune System
By creating an "Artificial Fever", infrared heat has a positive effect on the immune system. Often misunderstood, fever is a natural healing response of the body. The function of the immune system is increased naturally during a fever, while virus and bacterial growth is slowed, weakening its hold. This helps the body ward off invading organisms. Treating the early stages of a cold or flu with a sauna session has been known to decrease the effects before they occur. Overall, you will feel healthier for a longer period of time and will be more resistant to illness and disease. Our immune system keeps us running at our peak so we must keep it strong.
