What is an Infrared Sauna?
Our Jacuzzi® Far Infrared Sauna produces the same infrared heat produced by the sun. Infrared heat is required for all living things for optimum health. The radiant heat from your Jacuzzi® infrared sauna surrounds you and penetrates deeply into your joints, muscles and tissues increasing oxygen flow and circulation. As a result, there is an array of infrared sauna health benefits. So, an infrared sauna is simply a device that is used to replicate the natural & healing infrared heat that is produced by the sun. They come in different sizes – ours are extremely comfortable and allow ample space to relax, stretch your legs & arms, and enjoy the healing properties that comes with sweating. Infrared heat is all around us and you have felt it from sources like fire, heated sand on the beach and the sun (without the harmful ultraviolet waves that the sun gives off). Just as visible light has a range of wavelengths (running from red to violet), so does infrared light: longer wavelength infrared waves are thermal, while short or near infrared waves are not hot at all, in fact, you cannot even feel them. It is the far infrared energy that is most beneficial, penetrating the skin and increasing circulation to help rid the body of harmful toxins. Near and mid infrared enhance the benefits of far infrared.

Infrared Sauna Benefits: Top 8 Benefits
As Acupuncture has grown in popularity, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Institute of Health (NIH) have performed clinical studies on the effects of acupuncture. These organizations have developed the following theories of how Acupuncture works in easy to understand, modern scientific terms.
1. Weight Loss & Increased Metabolism
According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, regular use of a sauna imparts a similar boost on the cardiovascular system as running. As you relax in the gentle infrared heat, your body is hard at work producing sweat, pumping blood and burning calories. As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart works harder to pump blood at a greater rate to boost circulation. This increase in your metabolism will burn calories.
2. Muscle Pain Relief
Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscle, so they recover faster. Muscles relax best when tissues are warm, for greater flexibility and range of motion. Far Infrared heat relieves muscle tension. The deep heat of far infrared saunas help peripheral blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries. Infrared heat also reduces soreness on nerve endings and muscle spasms as muscle joints and fibers are heated.
3. Immune System Boost
The deep heating from the our Infrared Heaters will raise your core body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. How does this benefit the body? Fever is the body’s natural mechanism to strengthen and accelerate the immune response, as seen in the case of infection. This enhanced immune system, combined with improved elimination of toxins and wastes via intense sweating, increases your overall health and resistance to disease.
One of the biggest infrared sauna health benefits is its ability to increase your blood circulation and stimulate the sweat glands, releasing built-up toxins in the body. Daily sauna sweating can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of accumulated highly toxic metals (lead, mercury, nickel, and cadmium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid, and other organic and inorganic compounds. “It has been known for decades that sweating is a wonderful way to get rid of stored chemicals, including heavy metals. In fact, sauna is one of the detoxification procedures used in the Environmental Units in Dallas (Dr. William Rea) and North Charleston (Dr. Allan Lieberman) where the sickest of folks go to heal.” Dr. Sherry Rogers, Total Wellness, May 2000.
5. Improves Appearance of Cellulite
Cellulite refers to superficial pockets of trapped fat, which cause uneven dimpling or “orange peel” skin. It appears in 90% of post-adolescent women and is rarely seen in men. Common, but not exclusive areas where cellulite is found are the buttocks, thighs, and the abdomen. Contrary to popular belief, cellulite is not related to obesity, and the appearance of cellulite is not always reduced by weight loss. Since the Far Infrared Radiant Heat of our Sauna warms three times as deep as conventional saunas, it is significantly more effective at reducing cellulite. There is a direct link between the slowing of metabolic rates and the storage of toxins in fat cells. Sauna use and far infrared heat can increase heart rate and localized blood circulation, which essentially reverses the above-mentioned trends towards the accumulation of liquids in the fat cells to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
6. Eases Joint and Muscles Stiffness
Time spent in an infrared sauna benefits guests suffering from many forms of arthritis. Radiant heat has also been effective in the treatment of sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms, joint stiffness and many other muscular-skeletal ailments. Much of the stiffness, aches and soreness that comes with aging is reduced or eliminated.
7. Stress & Fatigue Reduction
Just a few minutes in the gentle warmth of an Infrared Sauna will help you feel relaxed, rejuvenated and renewed. Many of our Guests comment on how much they look forward to their Infrared Sauna session, as it’s a great time to get away and release any built-up tension and stress. It’s like having a day spa at ALIGNOLOGY! Infrared Saunas have also been shown to affect the autonomic nervous system putting you in the parasympathetic (rest and digest) state allowing your body to heal.
8. Improves Skin
The profuse sweating achieved after just a few minutes in our Infrared Sauna carries off deeply embedded impurities and dead skin cells, leaving the skin glowing and immaculately clean. Increased circulation draws your skin’s own natural nutrients to the surface. You’ll see improved tone, elasticity, texture and fresh color. Increased blood circulation has also been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, lesions and cuts. In addition, open wounds heal more quickly, reducing scarring.

Infrared Sauna Vs. Regular Sauna
There are two main differences between an infrared sauna and a traditional sauna.
The source of the heat
In a traditional sauna, you use a stove to heat the sauna up. It’s almost like you’re sitting in an oven, which heats up your skin. When your skin heats up, your body tries to cool itself off by sweating. In an infrared sauna, the sauna uses an infrared heater to send out infrared wavelengths. Those wavelengths are absorbed by your skin – which then causes your body temperature to rise.
How hot the sauna gets
In a traditional sauna, it can get up to 180-190 degrees. In an infrared sauna, it doesn’t get as hot. It’s usually around 130 degrees – but the infrared wavelengths make up for the lost heat.
