How Do the
Circuits Work ?
The IINNER FLOW CIRCUIT addresses the “issues in the tissues” when stress hormones and repressed feelings surrounding traumatic events affect the body’s regulatory functions. This System Detox Circuit improves and revitalizes the immune, respiratory, and lymphatic systems for optimal well-being.
Phase 1: Infrared Sauna
According to many health professionals, the more stressed you are, the more cortisol your body produces which can cause several health challenges. Scientific evidence shows that Infrared Sauna Therapy helps the body maintain healthy levels of cortisol. Because our Infra-Red Sauna Therapy unit uses Solo-carbon far infrared technology, it is seven times more effective than a traditional sauna with results felt where toxins reside at the cellular level.
How Safe is Infrared Heat?
Infrared heat is completely safe and healthy for all living things. You can be exposed to infrared light for hours without the risk of burning. Infrared is a naturally occurring output of the sun but does not contain the harmful UV rays associated with unprotected sunlight. In fact, infrared heat is so safe, it is used in hospitals to warm newborn infants.
What’s the Difference Between Infrared Saunas and Traditional Saunas?
Infrared heat is very gentle. The experience is similar to lying in the sun on a warm day and feeling the heat radiate to the core of your body. Unlike traditional (hot rock or steam) saunas–which operate at well in excess of 200°F–infrared heat has the benefit of being effective at a more comfortable operating temperature of 100°-150°F.
Traditional saunas heat the air vs. the body directly. Rather than inducing detoxification and relaxation, this can make the experience unbearably hot and difficult to breathe. Because infrared heat penetrates human tissue vs. simply heating the surface of the skin, infrared saunas are seven times more effective than traditional saunas at detoxifying the body. By raising the body’s core temperature, infrared saunas can produce a sweat composed of 20% toxins vs. only 3% toxins with a traditional sauna.
Drinking an electrolyte replacement water or sports drink is strongly recommended before and after sauna use.
I’m Taking Prescription Medications, Can I Use an Infrared Sauna?
Individuals who are using prescription drugs should seek the advice of their personal physician or a pharmacist for possible changes in the drugs effect when the body is exposed to infrared waves or elevated body temperature. Diuretics, barbiturates and beta-blockers may impair the body’s natural heat loss mechanisms. Anticholinergics such as Amitriptyline may inhibit sweating and can predispose individuals to heat rash or to a lesser extent, heat stroke. Some over-the-counter drugs, such as antihistamines, may also cause the body to be more prone to heat stroke.
