What is Infrared Therapy?
This service is 30 minutes of warm bliss as the Far Infrared light warms your body from the inside out. It’s a double seater so bring a friend with you!
The sun is the primary source of radiant energy, but not all of this energy is beneficial. Infrared heat provides all the healthy benefits of natural sunlight without any of the dangerous effects of solar radiation. Infrared rays are healthy rays that penetrate deep into your skin and dissolve harmful toxins that accumulated in your body. The infrared rays vitalize your cells and metabolism. Far infrared waves activate our sweat glands which is one of the mechanisms though which our body eliminates toxins.
Since the skin is the largest organ in the human body it is a very good means for elimination.
Benefits of Infrared Therapy:
- Chronic Pain & Fatigue
- Cellulite & Weight Loss
- Inflammation, Injury & Scar Tissue
- Arthritis & Musculoskeletal Pain
- Improved Circulation
- Acne/Skin Tone

How does Infrared Therapy work?
When far infrared waves are applied to water molecules (comprising 70% of our body) these molecules begin to vibrate. This vibration reduces the ion bonds and the eventual breakdown of the water molecules causing encapsulated gasses and other toxic materials to be released. Far infrared is the longest wavelength which penetrates the fat cells causing vasodilation, where the fat cells vibrate to expel toxins, resulting in the greatest levels of detoxification and stimulates your metabolism to aid in weight-loss.
What does NASA say about Infrared Therapy?
The efficacy of infrared waves is very broad and has been recently studied by NASA. Among the infrared waves, the far infrared rays, which have a wavelength of 6-12 microns, are especially good for the human body. These waves have the potential to penetrate 1.5 to 2 inches or more into the body allowing for deep heat and raise your core body temperature from deep inside. The deep heat of far infrared is why scholars believe that the Ondol (traditional warm floor of Korea) is good for health because the materials for the Ondol are stone and earth, both of which radiate far infrared waves when heated.
The far infrared rays consist of similar wavelengths as those emitted naturally by the human body. This is one potential explanation of why many feel energetically rejuvenated and balanced from contact with far infrared waves. It is also believed that far infrared waves help improve blood circulation and recovery from fatigue.
