Infrared Saunas: Healing our bodies from the inside out


For many of us, pain and stiffness have become a normal part of our every day life but this is not the way our bodies should be feeling.  Infrared sauna’s are a new wave of technology that penetrates 2-3 inches below the skins surface, heating your tissues and offering amazing benefits to the body.  Heat affecting these areas can help to increase circulation, nourish damaged tissues as well as pull chemicals, assisting in a mild detoxification.

Through the use of infrared light, heat is generated. This in turn directly heats the body through radiation and stills the bodies internal heat.  This is a much different mechanism then traditional saunas which use convection, conduction, as well as radiation to accomplish the same objective. Due to it’s ability to heat the body directly and not the surrounding air, infrared saunas more easily tolerated by people who do not fare well in hot environments.

With a 45 minute session, you can easily sweat out toxins, increase your metabolism as well as help to aid symptoms of a number of chronic conditions such as: Arthritis, Congestive Heart Failure and High Blood Pressure.

    This is so interesting. I don’t like saunas but this sounds different and appealing. Vidya’s website is amazing and I hope to spend a night or two there with a few of my favorite girl friends.
