FAR INFRARED SAUNA

WHAT IF I TOLD YOU THAT YOU COULD HELP YOUR BODY DETOX, BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM, AND INCREASE YOUR METABOLISM TO HELP WEIGHT LOSS EFFORTS…ALL IN ONE TREATMENT? HOW EXCITED WOULD YOU BE?!

Well…these things (and more) can be achieved by using a Far Infrared Sauna (FIS). The “far” describes where on the light spectrum the infrared waves fall.

A Far Infrared Sauna (FIS) is different than a traditional sauna in that the traditional sauna heats up the air in the sauna, and then the air heats up your body. A FIS uses light to create heat. The light of the infrared sauna directly heats up your body without warming the air around you like a traditional sauna. This allows you to use lower temperatures during your FIS treatments. That bottle of water you have in the sauna-stays cold! Personally, I take my phone, my iPad or a book in the FIS with me. If you’re concerned with the term infrared, don’t worry, the harmful UV rays are removed.

YOU CAN USE THE FIS EVERY DAY!

When you first start using the sauna you want to build your tolerance by starting at a lower temperature, and by starting with 15 minutes sessions. As your body acclimates, you can increase the heat and time with subsequent sessions. Typically clients will work up to using the FIS at a temperature of 110 – 130 degrees Fahrenheit (occasionally up to 140) and for 30 minutes. (occasionally 45 minutes). At no time during your FIS sessions, or in between your sessions should you feel lightheaded, “drained”, nauseous, fatigued or uncomfortable.

If you do, this could be a sign you are detoxing too fast and need to adjust your sessions. And all you massage clients…You can add 15 minutes in the FIS just prior to
your scheduled massage. This warms up your muscles so your massage therapist can work deeper more quickly. OR add 15-30 minutes after your massage to help your body get rid of the toxins!

So if you are looking to get “swimsuit ready,” or really want to focus on good health… the Far Infrared Sauna is for you!

    At our West Des Moines day spa, we use proven laser technology to permanently reduce unwanted hair on the face or body. Our experienced technicians direct laser energy to the hair, and the pigment in the hair absorbs the heat and transmits it to the follicle. This disables or damages the follicle, permanently reducing hair production without harming the skin. Although several treatments are required for maximum effectiveness, each treatment is safe, brief, and comfortable.
