The sun produces a combination of visible and invisible light, and one of those invisible spectrums is infrared rays. Invisible infrared wavelengths are what makes the sun feel warm (and ultraviolet wavelengths are what makes it bright). Scientists have established that infrared waves are beneficial to the human body because they are easily absorbed, stimulating the lymphatic, immune and cardiovascular systems and also help remove toxins. Infrared does all of this without any of the harmful rays of sunlight.
While you are in the heat of the sauna your body increases circulation to even the smallest blood vessels. Your body also begins to sweat which is where the detoxification process begins. We all have dangerous toxins within our bodies, whether it’s chemicals from our foods, pesticides, cleaning products or from the very air we breathe. When the chemical build up is too much for our liver and kidneys to handle, they build up within our joints, our blood, fats and organs. In short, sauna detoxification gives your body the help it needs to expel these harmful toxins through sweat and improve your optimal health.

It attempts to maintain harmony and balance in the mind and body, while trying to understand the complex relationships that exist in human biology.
