In detail here are the facts about far infrared sauna’s. www.saunatech.co.za
Pain Relief – A major health benefit of infrared sauna is in the area of reduction of pain in muscles and joints. Hyperthermia or heat therapy helps to reduce pain, inflammation and edema by acting on nerve endings as well as encouraging production of endorphins, which act as natural analgesics. Stimulating the dilation of peripheral blood vessels, brings relief to muscles and speeds the healing of soft tissue injuries. Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen rich blood to depleted muscles to speed up the body’s natural recovery process. Infrared therapy has been successfully used to reduce pain from a variety of conditions including whiplash, arthritis, bursitis, sciatica, back pain, neuritis, menstrual cramps, fibromyalgia, migraines, gout and chronic muscle spasms. “Much of the stiffness, aches and soreness that comes with aging is reduced or eliminated.” -USA Clinical Study. “Whole body far infrared heat relieved pain from burns and decreased healing time with less scarring.” -Japanese Clinical Study.
Strengthens Cardiovascular System – As the body increases sweat production to cool itself, the heart pumps blood at a greater rate boosting circulation. Heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate increase, while blood pressure drops for improved cardiovascular fitness. If your blood pressure is already low, you will find through using the FIR sauna on a regular basis that it has a regulating effect on the blood pressure. The Mayo Clinic heart studies of end congestive heart failure patients showed improvement within three weeks. A study was published in The Journal of the American College of Cardiology, 2001, to determine whether infrared sauna therapy improves blood vessel function in patients with risk factors such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes and smoking. Patients were treated in a FIR sauna for 15 minutes, once a day, for 2 weeks. Results: significantly lowered blood pressure, weight loss, lowered blood sugar, significantly increased blood flow, lowered cholesterol and lowered triglycerides.This suggests a preventive role for sauna use for arteriosclerosis.
Weight Loss and Cellulite
In a 30 minute session, it is possible to burn from 600 to 2000 calories depending on your size and muscle mass. Toxins stored in fat are decreased making it easier for weight loss. While the weight of water loss can be regained by rehydraton, the calories consumed will not be. Cellulite is a gel-like substance made up of fat, water and wastes which are trapped in pockets below the skin. The intense sweating in regular FIR sessions helps clear this form of unwanted debris. The sauna is a great way for people that don’t like to, or are not able to exercise, to lose weight and have a passive cardio. “Far infrared therapy created weight loss through sweating, the energy expended to produce sweating and through direct excretion of fat.” -Japanese Clinical Study
Profuse sweating achieved carries off deeply embedded impurities and dead skin cells leaving the skin immaculately clean. Increased circulation draws the skin’s own natural oils and nutrients to the surface. This results in improved texture, skin tone and elasticity. Regular FIR sauna users are said to have more youthful skin that “glows.” People with chronic skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, eczema, rosacea will benefit from regular sessions. Fully formed scars, even keloids, can be gradually softened. Burns and other wounds or incisions may heal with significantly reduced scarring.
Reduces Stress and Fatigue
Perhaps the most immediate relief FIR offers is simple relaxation, as it melts away the stresses and tensions of urban life. Due to the many physiological effects of heat therapy, people feel less stressed and report being able to sleep better after their sauna sessions. A sauna session relaxes muscles, circulates blood, stimulates the heart and releases endorphins, providing a feeling of invigoration and well being.
“Now we have the proof that it is the steady, silent accumulation of chemicals and toxins over a lifetime that produces most diseases, including cancer. If we get these ubiquitously unavoidable toxic chemicals out of the body, we can reverse and even cure the most hopeless diseases. Since the far infrared sauna is the safest, most efficacious and economical way to depurate stored toxins, this makes it a household necessity.” – Dr. Sherry Rogers, MD, ABEM, ABFP “…in addition, cancer cells do not like hyperthermia (heat) or high oxygen content, both of which are provided by the far infrared sauna, which also boosts the immune system.” – Dr T. Alibhai, ND, BSc Jim Chan, ND has treated about 5,000 cancer patients. He explains that far infrared therapy has the ability to break up the protective rings around harmful molecules in the body so they’re no longer cancer-causing. It also weakens the bonds between toxins and human tissues, so stored toxins can be flushed out of the system faster and in greater quantities through the skin (via sweating), liver and bowels. Cancer cannot survive in an environment of temperatures more than 42C (107.6F). In addition to its detoxifying effects, FIR heat actually helps kill cancer cells, increase the effectiveness of chemotherapy and reduce the side-effects of conventional therapies. At the same time, it boosts the body’s regenerative abilities.
Detoxify Your Body
The effect of detoxification is one of the most interesting and wide-ranging benefits of FIR therapy. The deep penetrating infrared heat causes chemicals such as potentially carcinogenic heavy metals, pesticides, PCB’s, alcohol, nicotine, sodium, ammonia, uric acid, cholesterol and fat-soluble chemicals to be released from the fat cells and tissues into the lymph fluid. Since sweat is made from the lymph fluid, toxins present will exit the body through the sweat. By taking this detoxifying load off your liver and kidneys, even chronically ill people will experience a significant benefit. One study found that the sweat formed in conventional saunas is 97 percent water. In FIR saunas, only 80 percent of the sweat is composed of water, the remaining 20 percent consists of toxins, poisons and waste.

The skin is our largest organ. It works very hard to prevent toxins from penetrating deep into our bodies, filtering out bad chemicals which are deposited in the top layer of the skin for later shedding.
The condition of your skin is an indication of your health. If your skin looks unhealthy, it usually means that your body is also unhealthy.
There are many things that affect the overall health of your skin including the environment we live in, the food we eat, the amount of sleep we get, the amount of stress we live with, the amount of alcohol we drink, and whether or not we smoke.
Pre-mature aging of your skin can also be caused by drugs, prescription medications, sun exposure, and dehydration. Anti aging skin care products that have an alcohol or petroleum base or contain fragrances can also have a detrimental effect on your skin. Older skin has less elasticity and can’t produce elastic proteins like collagen and elastin, the way younger skin does. This results in the formation of wrinkles and adds to the aging effect.
A far infrared sauna is one of the most beneficial tools for improving your skin. The deep penetrating far infrared rays improves blood flow, lowers blood pressure, kills unwanted organisms, opens blocked pores, eliminates dead skin cells, and removes rancid oils and bacteria – all without any pain.
Acne, eczema and psoriasis are signs that your body systems are not in proper balance. Far infrared saunas improve circulation, providing oxygen rich blood to damaged areas to heal and remove toxins. They help restore balance and prevent future breakouts. The result is immaculately clean, glowing skin with improved tone, elasticity, texture and color.
According to the Clayton’s Electrotherapy (9th Edition) far infrared radiation is the only antidote to excessive ultraviolet radiation, healing skin that has been damaged by over exposure to the sun. Using far infrared saunas on a regular basis not only revives your skin, it gives it a healthy, youthful glow.
If you already have damaged skin, it is not too late. Your marvelous body can regenerate itself and given the right encouragement, you can reverse the damage.

The word toxin is used to describe anything that is foreign or poisonous to the body. All of us are exposed to thousands of toxins and chemicals on a daily basis. Toxins fall into two main categories: environmental toxins and internal body toxins.
Environmental toxins include but are not limited to, household chemicals, industrial pollutants, food additives, and pesticides.
During the last 100 years, at least 75,000 new chemicals have been introduced into our environment. The majority of these chemicals have no scientific evidence to prove that they are safe for human consumption or exposure. In fact, most of them are known to be unsafe for humans at some level.
The following is a compelling excerpt on Toxins. We include this story to emphasize that Toxins, even in the hands of professionals are dangerous and potentially deadly.
Bad things come in small packages. On August 14, 1996, Karen Wetterhahn, a toxicologist and professor of chemistry at Dartmouth College, spilled a drop, a tiny speck, of dimethylmercury on her left hand. Wetterhahn, tall, thin, intense, was an expert on how toxic metals cause cancer once they penetrate cell membranes. When she spilled the poisonous droplet in her lab, she thought nothing of it; she was wearing latex gloves. What she didn’t know killed her.
The dimethylmercury was volatile enough to penetrate the glove. Five months later Wetterhahn began stumbling into doors and slurring words. After three weeks in a hospital, she slipped into a coma.
“I went to see her, but it wasn’t the kind of coma I’d expected,” recalled Diane Stearns, one of her postdoctoral students, now a professor of chemistry herself. “She was thrashing about. Her husband saw tears rolling down her face. I asked if she was in pain. The doctors said it didn’t appear that her brain could even register pain.” Karen Wetterhahn died five months later. She was 48 years old, a wife and mother of two. The mercury had devoured her brain cells “like termites eating away for months,” one of her doctors said. How could such a brilliant, meticulous, world-class toxicologist come to such an end?
“Only lion tamers are killed by lions”, said Kent Sugdan, one of her postdoctoral fellows.

Internal body toxins consist of waste products created by normal metabolic processes within the body. Everyday physiological processes such as energy production, digestion and hormone synthesis create waste products. These waste products are examples of internal toxins. If these waste products are not discarded they interfere with the function of our internal organs . Although the human body excretes the majority of these toxins through urination and fecal elimination, we also expel them when we breathe, sweat, cut our hair and trim our nails .
Such digestive toxins are produced as a result of breaking down proteins, starches and fats . We are eating more sugar and processed foods than ever before in human history and regularly abuse our bodies with various stimulants and sedatives all of which contribute to the toxic load.
We are exposed to thousands of toxins and chemicals on a daily basis . U.S. industries manufacture over 6 trillion pounds of 9,000 different chemicals a year . Billions of pounds of industrial chemicals are dumped into our air and water year after year. For decades, scientists have been studying the pollutants in our air, water, food, and soil. Now they are turning their attention to examine pollution levels in humans. The findings are disturbing.
Research shows that our bodies are not capable of eliminating the multitude of toxins that we ingest daily.
Over time there is a build up of body toxins and if they are not released or cleansed, varying degrees of illness occur . When your body is unable to release or break toxins, they are stored within the fatty tissues, blood, and organs (such as the colon, liver and brain). They remain stored for an indefinite length of time causing all kinds of health problems .
People who are highly toxic are susceptible to many diseases including;
- Premature Aging
- Auto-immune Diseases
- Skin Disorders
- Hormone Imbalances
- Emotional Disorders
- Heart Disease
- Chronic Fatigue
Natural Body Detoxification and its benefit to your health
Natural Body detoxification is a process whereby toxins are released from fatty tissues, blood, organs and are expelled from the body. When faced with toxicity, our bodies respond by retaining water in an effort to dilute water-soluble toxins and by retaining fat in an effort to dilute fat-soluble toxins . As a result, toxins often lead to weight gain and increased fat retention .
Most people living on this planet have varying degrees of toxicity in their physical body. We are bombarded with polluted air, food that is tainted by pesticides, herbicides, parasites and acidic water .
There are also many other lesser known causes of toxicity levels in our bodies including home cleaning products, silver fillings (amalgam), vaccines and personal care products .
The human body is designed with an incredible defense system that keeps us healthy even under the most extreme circumstances . Natural Body detoxification is performed through the colon, lungs, skin, urinary tract, lymphatic system and the liver.
You may be wondering how you will know, or what symptoms will show up, to let you know that your body needs to be detoxified . There are a myriad of symptoms that are strong indicators that the body may need help. Some of these include unexplained fatigue, increased allergies, hypersensitivity to common materials, intolerance to certain foods, indigestion, aches and pains, low grade fever, headaches, insomnia, depression, sore throats, sudden weight loss or gain, lowered resistance to infection, frequent colds. A proper body detoxification program will remove harmful toxins. With the toxins gone, the symptoms go away .
These symptoms are indicative of toxic overload and when this occurs, we need to help the body detoxify through a variety of Natural Detoxification methods .
For full body detoxification:
A far infrared sauna is especially effective at full body detoxification . It is up to three times more effective than regular saunas. Infrared rays penetrate the body one and a half to three inches. This causes a deep heating effect in the muscle tissues and internal organs . The cellular metabolism is stimulated which breaks up the water molecules that hold the toxins and allows them to be released through the skin in perspiration . Through the perspiration process, acid and waste residue such as toxins, sodium, alcohol, nicotine, cholesterol and the potentially carcinogenic heavy metals (especially zinc, lead, nickel, cadmium, etc) are removed from the cells.
The medical profession acknowledges the success of infrared sauna technology and many doctors provide a sauna within their offices for patient use. Drink plenty of clean, filtered water (preferably alkaline water) while in the sauna. Sun Spirit Infrared Saunas are a safe and natural way to cleanse your body through natural body detoxification.
For the liver – eat foods that help the liver detoxify:
- Broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and kale
- Green foods – green vegetables, sea vegetables and seaweed
- Various supplements, green tea and milk thistle extract
For the Colon – eat fiber – 25-30 grams of fiber per day:
- Apples, pears and citrus fruits
- Carrots, beans, lentils, legumes and peas
- Whole grains
For the Urinary Track – drink plenty of clean alkaline water:
- Your body needs a minimum 2 quarts of water a day
For over all good health – eat organic foods whenever possible:
- The thicker the peel on fruit and vegetables the less chance of pesticide penetration – bananas, grapefruits, pineapple and watermelons
For the Skin – have a good sweat:
- If you are unable to have a good sweat for whatever reason or you are unable to exercise, give serious consideration to far infrared sauna therapy to remove body toxins through natural body detoxification.

The dry sauna can also be an infrared sauna. Also known as FIR, it heats your body without heating the air around you similar to the way the sun utilizes the wavelengths of light for heat. It is a more efficient use of energy (healthy for your power bill) and very "hot" in the new home market. The infrared sauna’s heat source warms ceramic tiles in the wall of the sauna that make for an even heat without the need for a fan. They use less power, lower temps, heat faster with less maintenance than the standard dry sauna that depends on a floor heater and rocks for heat generation.
Infrared saunas can warm your deepest tissues and help heal. An infrared sauna is healthy for the whole family, including anyone with respiratory problems. Another perk of the infrared sauna is its control…you can set the time and temperature of the unit for what is best for you. Any time there is a spike in temperature the unit will shut down as well. Add in the other benefits of the dry sauna, including the expansion of blood vessels and raising your internal temperature high enough (110 degrees F) to burn fat, you may want to investigate the infrared sauna.

We believe that the two most powerful ideas in health today are detoxification and nutrition.
Our exposure to toxins is higher now than at any point in human history. So many aspects of our lives contribute to our toxic burden without our awareness. While many of us probably have some idea that being around pesticides or automobile exhaust probably isn’t good for us, most of us would probably be surprised to know that the fire retardants present in virtually everything in our homes (in South Africa) also exposes us to toxins. Even our carpeting outgases over 12 chemicals known to cause cancer. Toxins damage cells, disrupt our endocrine systems, and impair the body’s ability to absorb nutrients and heal itself.
Besides toxins inhibiting our ability to absorb nutrients, other factors also contribute to reduced nutrition. Worsening the state of our health is our increased need for nutrients resulting from our use of antibiotics and other medications, our diets high in protein and fat, and our often high-stress lifestyles.
Benefits of Infrared Saunas Over Hot-Rock Saunas Call 021 5567203
Since infrared saunas heat the body directly rather than heating the air, many proponents of infrared saunas claim that the heat penetrates the body deeper than the heat of traditional saunas, which use steam. This penetration leads to more sweat, which leads to a greater detoxification experience. It also can promote tissue stimulation, which can aid with problems like arthritis pain and tissue damage.
From a practical standpoint, some brands of infrared saunas can be portable, easier to clean, and quicker to use than traditional saunas. Some benefits of infrared saunas:
• Whereas traditional saunas are installed in a permanent location, infrared saunas can be set up in less than an hour, and then broken down and moved elsewhere.
• Infrared saunas don’t mildew, since they don’t use steam like traditional saunas
• Some brands of traditional saunas heat up faster (in 15 or so minutes) than traditional saunas (which can take 45 minutes or more)
• Infrared saunas operate at a lower heat than traditional saunas, which can be safer for people with cardiovascular problems – and more comfortable
• Infrared saunas usually use less electricity to heat than traditional saunas, making them cheaper to operate
Rejuvenating Your Skin With A Sauna – 021 5567203
Skin Rejuvenation through a sauna
Your body experiences many benefits through regular sauna use including improved blood flow, boosting your immune system, and reducing stress. Did you know that saunas also help rejuvenate your skin.
Your skin will benefit from the increased blood flow circulation that occurs as a result of a sauna. Sweating also clears out your pores and rids your skin of toxins. This aids in getting rid of dirt and oil that can cause acne, making your skin clearer and softer.
To achieve optimal results for your skin, make sure you shower immediately after getting out, making sure you wash all the expelled dirt and oil from your skin.

Infrared light is part of the Sun’s invisible spectrum of light. The benefits of Far-infrared light are manifested in its ability to penetrate the human tissue. Infrared heater technology uses these Far-infrared light characteristics to provide you with several healthful benefits. The experience of a Far infrared sauna is akin to sunbathing, which gives you the radiant beauty that is all your own. The Far-infrared heat (Far-infrared light waves) penetrates your skin, giving you that wonderful natural warmth. Unlike sunbathing, you can relax in a Far infrared sauna for hours and it will never cause your skin to burn. Infrared heater technology is completely healthy and safe for all living things. We believe our Far infrared sauna’s benefits speak for themselves.
The benefits of far infrared to us
Chinese Studies Report Positive Effects of Infrared Heat
Researchers report over 90 percent success in a summary of Chinese studies that assessed the effects of infrared heat therapy on:
•Soft tissue injury
•Periarthritis of the shoulder
•Pain during menstruation
•Eczema with infection
•Facial paralysis (Bell’s Palsy)
•Frostbite with inflammation
Besides, Here are some general of the Far Infrared sauna’s advantages:
1. Reduces Stress – Infrared heat therapy loosens muscles and relaxes the body prior to a massage. Many massage therapists use infrared heat to provide much more thorough and effective treatment.
2. Benefit your Skin – Infrared heat improves circulation, expels dirt chemicals and removes dead cells from surface of skin. All of these benefits lead to a softer and firm complexion. Reduces wrinkle associated with aging.
3. Expel Toxins – Detoxification. Toxins such as sodium, alcohol, nicotine, carcinogenic heavy metals (cadmium, lead, zinc, nickel) and mercury accumulate in the body during modern daily life. Infrared heat therapy stimulates the sweat glands to cleanse and detoxify skin.
4. Pain Relief – FIR heat relieves pain by expanding blood vessels and increasing circulation. Better circulation allows more oxygen to reach injured areas of the body and helps reduce pain and speed up the healing process. Many people use FIR heat as a successful treatment for arthritis, muscle spasms and rheumatism.
5. Control weight – Perspiring is part of the complex thermo regulatory process of the body that increases the heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate. The process requires a large amount of the energy and reduces excess moisture, salt and subcutaneous fat. Fat becomes soluble water at 42? when body sweats out fats and toxins.
6. Improve immune system -During a fever, the body heats up to eliminate viruses and attack foreign agents. Subsequently, the body wards off invading organisms much more easily because the immune system is activated consistently by the "artificial fever". Recent studies also show that colds and flu-like illnesses are reduced dramatically if treated in the early stages with FIR heat therapy.
7. Provide the same effects of exercise – The heart receives a workout similar to a 20-30 minute FIR sauna session and the body perspires the same amount as a 6 mile run. Infrared saunas are perfect for those who do not have time for regular exercise or suffer from injuries that inhibit for rigorous activity.
How safe is it?
One of Far-Infrared light’s characteristics is the ability to easily penetrate human tissue. When this happens, it creates a natural resonance, which has many beneficial properties. The Far-Infrared heat (Far-infrared light waves) penetrates your skin, giving you that wonderful natural warmth. Far-infrared heating is used in hospitals to warm newborn infants.
