How Can an Infrared Sauna Help You?


TheraSauna harnesses the power of infrared heat to help heal the body. As a result of exposure to infrared heat many ailments including: arthritis, migraine headaches, and acne - have shown improvements in clinical studies.

Infrared heat is light produced by the sun. This is the heat you feel penetrate your skin when you stand in the sun - and miss when you walk into the shade. Infrared energy is also given off as body heat.

The human body can also absorb infrared heat. Infrared energy is measured in wavelengths as microns. The human body can best absorb infrared energy in the 3- to 50-micron range, with the best absorption occurring at 9.4 microns. TheraSauna emits infrared heat in the 7- to 14-micron range with a peak at 9.4 microns, the same as the human body, making it easier to absorb. Easier absorption also means that the infrared heat penetrates deeper into body tissues than traditional hot air saunas - up to an inch-and-a-half.

The infrared therapy of the TheraSauna stimulates the cellular metabolism and breaks up the water molecules that hold toxins within the body, thus allowing the body to void these toxins through perspiration. These vibrations cause a release of cellular toxins such as mercury, aluminum, cholesterol and toxic gases such as sulfur and formaldehyde. This optimal micron output also allows for deeper penetration of far-infrared heat, which improves pain relief, detoxification, circulation, and increased peripheral blood flow. Combined with a customized diet and nutritional program have vastly improved, restored, and rejuvenated many of my patients at the cellular level. Therefore allowing them to feel better and lead a healthier lifestyle.

What the Doctors Are Saying:

"I have practiced general surgery and cancer surgery for over 25 years. With regard to my surgical patients, I tell them when they have recovered from their surgery, that their work has just begun. I remind them that their two most important questions should be: 'Why did I get this?' and 'What will keep it from returning?'. I don't profess to have all the answers. However there are sound principles of foundational health that I have employed with patients and have been pleased with the results. These include stress reduction, diet, exercise, rest, supplements, elimination, and detoxification.

Detoxification is critical due to the increasing amounts of toxins in our diet and environment. This includes fat-soluble toxins, such as PCBs and hexane, and toxic minerals such as mercury, lead, and cadmium. Part of my suggested program for toxin removal is the use of infrared sauna therapy. I have personally seen people recover from a multitude of problems including insomnia, constipation, fibromyalgia, allergies, chronic infections, arthritis, and fatigue after a few weeks of sauna therapy. In addition, I have seen mercury levels (as measured in the blood) drop 400% in less than a month. In conclusion, I believe that infrared sauna is safe and effective detoxification therapy which is of value to most everyone, regardless of age. "

"My medical practice specializes in alternative and nutritional medicine. Many different therapies are used; however, our primary focus is detoxification, nutritional counseling, and support. Today's modern world has caused new environmental issues, thus increasing the number of pollutants and toxins that are inhaled, ingested, or absorbed into our cells and tissues. Cells often become overwhelmed with toxins, therefore increasing the patient's risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other immune disorders. The body's cells must receive proper nutrients and expel these harmful toxins to fight disease and function optimally. In my private practice each assessment starts with evaluation, counseling, and nutritional support, followed by my "Toxic Relief" program which includes toxin screenings, cleansing diet, fasting, chelation of heavy metals and TheraSauna treatments. The infrared therapy of the TheraSauna stimulates the cellular metabolism and breaks up the water molecules that hold toxins within the body, thus allowing the body to void these toxins through perspiration. These treatments combined with a customized diet and nutritional program have vastly improved, restored and rejuvenated many of my patients at the cellular level. Therefore, allowing them to feel better and lead a healthier lifestyle."

What Others Are Saying:

" I just can't begin to thank you enough for introducing your TheraSauna to me. I was in such severe back pain. I kept putting off going to my doctor because, well what can a doctor really do for your back - give you pain medicine, advise you to not do anything strenuous and to stay in bed. All of the things you already know you should do.

I really was interested in getting started with a program of yours. When I injured my back, I kept calling to cancel my appointment. When I called again to cancel and told you why, you told me of the medical benefits your TheraSauna has to offer and immediately faxed me the information for me to see myself. I had made my mind up that day I had to do something to end this painful misery. I was in tears. This injury had been going on for more than a week. I couldn't stand up straight or walk down the hall without holding onto the wall taking baby steps. When I read about all of the therapeutic benefits this TheraSauna has to offer and at such a reasonable price, I figured I had nothing to lose except for maybe a few calories - by the way this is reason enough to make a person attend a TheraSauna session. Well I couldn't get in to see a doctor for several days. I was going home early from work again to do nothing except ache in pain waiting for my doctor appointment. I figured I'd give it a try. When I slowly walked into your spa, you and your clients could see I was in pain. You both were so wonderful to me. All throughout the session you kept checking in with me to ensure everything was going all right.

I was beyond amazed at how well the TheraSauna really does work. The information you faxed me doesn't do justice for the benefits. With just one session, I was able to stand up straight and stretch my back muscles again. After a few minutes of being in there, I felt the heat penetrating my muscles, I began to loosen up and stretch again. When I was through, I was so elated with joy, I felt like jumping. It was a miracle. With just one session, I had been cured. There is no doubt in my mind about how therapeutic this sauna really is. I've told everyone I know about how I was cured from this TheraSauna and will continue to tell my story. Anyone, who is in pain or has doubts as to whether or not it works, let me know. I will set them straight: after all I'm a walking miracle. "

My most sincere appreciation and gratitude,
- Mary Beth, Texas

" I love my TheraSauna! It has benefited both my daughter and myself with several chronic medical conditions.

Severe migraines and sinus problems have plagued me since young adulthood and until I began to use your infrared sauna the only relief I could achieve has been with medication. With regular use of our sauna my migraines have virtually disappeared and I have stopped using my sinus medication.

My seven-year-old daughter has asthma. As soon as she begins to show signs of any symptoms I put her in the sauna at lower temperatures and the severity of her attack is dramatically reduced. Until two years ago she had spent extensive time every winter in the hospital. Since we began using the sauna her hospital stays have been eliminated. The sauna seems even to help with the severity of her colds.

Thank you for this product; both my daughter and myself have found tremendous relief in using it. "

" Just a note to tell you how much I enjoy my sessions in your infrared sauna.

Unfortunately, I am a seasonal sinus sufferer and this is the first time I have found anything to alleviate my often-severe headaches. After finding and using your sauna I have found that a 15-minute session alleviates even my most taxing headaches.

Over the years I have tried numerous sinus medications and even the steam saunas in which it is very difficult to breathe. Thank you for making this great product available.

Just as your brochure states this is truly "A Step Toward Better Health", at least for me. Again, thank you! "

" My wife and I recently purchased a TheraSauna (2-person) sauna unit. We have enjoyed the unit, and are believers in the benefits to health that a sauna offers."

" Just a note to express our complete satisfaction with the TheraSauna we recently purchased from you. The unit was well made and assembled very easily. It all went together just like the instructions stated-everything worked.

For over 50 years I used the conventional "Finnish Saunas"-hot rocks, water, etc. There is no comparison regarding the therapeutic value of this sauna over the others. My wife, who is not a sauna fan, loves this unit.

Again, we are both very pleased with this purchase. "

" I just wanted you to know how wonderful I think your sauna is. I was recently in a car accident and have been in awful back pain. After using your sauna I was much better.

I have also found that it helps my headaches and lower leg pains. "

" My husband and I purchased a TheraSauna in April 2000. He had been having chronic shoulder pain for about nine months. He had gone to the doctor several times and was highly medicated with pain medication and muscle relaxers. He was still having the pain even after all the doctor appointments and medication.

Then we decided to purchase a TheraSauna just for relaxation purposes. Well I never would have believed it, but it helped with the pain. Now he is almost pain free.

We would highly recommend a TheraSauna to anyone with chronic pain. It has helped him tremendously. "

- Mr. & Mrs. Alcala
