Get your sweat on: Dome Infrared Sauna
BY: DR. MELINA ROBERTS
We are happy to be offering at our clinic the latest in sauna technology. This sauna is different from a conventional sauna which provides ambient heat and only heats the air, this sauna provides radiant heat which warms the object directly, which is your body. This provides deep, penetrating heat, pulling toxins from subcutaneous fat storage directly into the sweat.
Skin is the largest organ in the body and plays a significant role in detoxifying the body. The average person has 2.6 million sweat glands and sweat glands are distributed over the majority of the human body. Sweating is a beneficial way to remove toxins from the body. These infrared waves penetrate the skin surface to a depth of about 6cm which leads to a deep sweat and allows toxins to be removed from both superficial and deep layers of tissues. The infrared sauna is able to raise the body’s core temperature and produce a deep, detoxifying sweat, which can remove toxins at the cellular level.
This is an excellent way to remove environmental toxins and heavy metals from the body, as well as improve lymphatic circulation.
