We Now Offer Far Infrared Sauna Treatments!

Our Far-Infrared sauna room is up and running so please take advantage of this added service.  Unlike traditional hot saunas, FIR works through vibrations from the FIR panels, working your core rather than heating from the outside.  Although you sit in temperatures around 120 degrees, you don’t profusely sweat like you would in other hot saunas.  This is especially helpful for those who can’t tolerate extreme heat or humidity seen in traditional saunas.

Far-Infrared’s vibrations penetrate deeper than hot saunas, affecting many more cells in our bodies, providing numerous benefits.  FIR draws out toxins and helps stimulate the lymphatic system and thus your entire immune system.  Some studies suggest FIR is able to draw out 7 times more toxins than any other traditional sauna.

FIR helps with acne by purifying the skin and cleansing the pores.  Weight loss is also a result of FIR as you are able to burn a high number of calories (by increasing heart rate, metabolic rate and cardiac output) in a short time – ALL while relaxing.

Other benefits of FIR use include cardiac improvement, pain relief from sports injuries, fibromyalgia, and other chronic pain maladies, and of course relaxation.

There are numerous scientific articles touting FIR improvements with rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, bronchitis and reduction of COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) symptoms, to name a few.

We’ve added a few features to our system to provide you with the best experience possible.  First and foremost, we added the ZERO-EMF feature which allows you to sit in the sauna while absorbing no harmful EMFs found in saunas without the specially installed panels.   A color therapy light can be turned on while you are in the sauna, providing some extra health benefits.  You can also listen to music, watch TV, or just close your eyes and relax.  The room is completely private so you can truly indulge in some “me” time.

Simply call to schedule your 20-minute session (can do more time if desired) or add it to the end of a cleaning or restorative procedure.  I highly recommend this for those of you getting your mercury fillings removed.  You are also welcome to bring a friend or a loved one to “sauna” while you have your dentistry done.
