Infrared Sauna Treatments


Your immune system is constantly going up against an arsenal of toxins such as pesticides, toxic metals, PCBs in plastics, environmental pollution, and even GMOs (genetically modified organisms). Flush them out with an Infrared Sauna that can remove 17% more toxins through sweating than traditional or hot air saunas. Researchers have long advised us about the benefits of sweating. In fact, when your body is fighting an illness or infection it creates a fever. This is your bodies natural way of removing the illness or infection. With an infrared sauna, you are essentially creating a natural fever in every sauna session. Going on the offense instead of defense.

The healing effects of sauna are mainly derived from the activation of the parasympathetic system. Science has further proven several benefits of regular use of sauna and in particular the use of the infrared sauna, which uses infrared radiation (or light) to increase temperature. It also has more therapeutic effects when compared to steam.

Deep detoxification
Treating cancer requires a detoxification program. Sweat is one way to eliminate waste from our body, detoxifying your body of heavy metals, phenols, phthalate, medications of chronic use, and many other cancer-causing chemicals — expelling out through our pores when we sweat.

Speeds recovery processes
The use of sauna increases IGF-1, a hormone vital for growth and essential in recovery processes.

Improves blood flow
Sauna therapy, however, allows for greater absorption of nutrients and oxygen in the areas and organs of the body affected by cancer, thereby making the cancer cells more labile to treatments.

Improves mood and decreases stress levels
Cancer is very much linked to stress and depression. The use of sauna increases the number of beta-endorphins, which provokes a certain feeling of euphoria or happiness. Thus, heat therapy throughout the body has been shown to improve the symptoms of depression in patients with cancer.

Sauna reduces blood sugar levels
Cancerous cells are eager glucose-eaters and thrive in a high-glucose environment with a high rate of growth and reproduction. The use of sauna therapy may increase insulin sensitivity thanks to an abundance of GLUT4 transporters, with blood sugar levels very low.

Helps to fight pain
The use of sauna helps alleviate pain, through the increased secretion of several hormones that have anti-inflammatory effects, such as noradrenaline and adrenaline as well as cortisol and IGF-1. It also increases the release of endorphins, our body’s natural analgesics.

The infrared sauna is a beneficial and safe powerful aid in the integrative approach of cancer treatment.

How will a sauna visit help treat cancer?
Research supports that infrared therapy offers an incredible benefit to our health. Not only does the hypothermic effects of infrared significantly challenge toxic and malignant cells, it simultaneously nourishes and regenerates our body at the cellular level. The National Cancer Institute defines hyperthermia as "a type of cancer treatment in which body tissue is exposed to high temperatures," affecting weaker cells while healthy tissue remains untouched, making infrared the perfect adversary against cancer. The radian heat of an infrared sauna also improves blood circulation when it penetrates beyond the skin level to the cellular level This increases ATP production and delivers freshly oxygenated hemoglobin through our body. This is also connected to the reversal of cancerous cell growth because they cannot thrive in highly oxygenated environments. Infrared saunas have detoxing benefits ranging from topical flushes to ridding internal organs of toxins. Infrared heating allows people to enjoy longer session at the sauna and opens up more opportunities for at-risk groups to partake in this therapy.
