What is Infrared Sauna Therapy?
Infrared light is comprised of longer wavelengths on the light spectrum than are invisible to the human eye. Even though they are invisible, their health benefits are far reaching. Our Sunlighten Infrared Sauna hosts the only 3-in-1 SoloCarbon heater, making it the only patented full spectrum controllable infrared sauna on the market.
About the Wavelengths
Near Infrared (NIR) are the shortest wavelengths penetrating the outer most layers of the skin thus promoting skin renewal, wound healing, cellular health, and tissue healing.
Mid Infrared (MIR) are longer wavelengths which penetrate deeper, where inflammation occurs. Through improved vascular circulation, increased oxygenation speeds healing and promotes pain reduction.
Far Infrared (FIR) are the longest infrared wavelengths, penetrating the deepest layers of the body where toxins are stored. These wavelengths increase your core temperature and stimulate the sweat glands promoting detoxification, increased cardiac output and passive calorie burn.
Infrared sauna benefits include but are not limited to:
- Strengthened Immune System
- Reduced Inflammation
- Improved Metabolism and Fat Burn
- Stress Reduction and Relaxation
- Improved Heart Health
- Passive Cardio Workout
- Muscle Repair and Wound Healing
- Slowed and Reversed Aging
What is Compression Therapy?
Compression therapy applies pulsed pressure to targeted areas of the body to improve blood flow and fluid movement, reduce pain and soreness and speed recovery. Think compression and traction at the same time. At BodyWorks Wellness we offer full body the patented Normatec Compression system which utilizes patented compression patterns to maximize benefits for the legs, arms and hips.
Normatec compression uses three techniques including pulsing, gradient and distal release to mimic the muscle pump throughout the body by using programmed pulsing of compressed air.
Though compression therapy doesn’t feel like massage, some of the physiological results are similar. Compression mobilizes fluid, fat and other metabolites, aids in recovery after workouts, promotes healing from surgeries, and toxin elimination following manual therapy and infrared sauna sessions.
Compression therapy benefits include but are not limited to:
- Expedited post-event muscle recovery.
- Reduction of inflammation and swelling through improved blood and lymph circulation.
- Prevention and minimization of varicose and spider veins.
- Improved skin tonicity including reducing the appearance of cellulite and loose or sagging skin.
- Speeds chronic wound healing, improves lymphedema and assists with improving circulatory disorders.
What is Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy?
Pulse Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy influences cellular behavior. It induces electrical charges around and within the cell. The therapy increases blood supply to the cells to activate and speed regeneration. PEMF also improves absorption of minerals and other substances into the cell thus improving soft tissue health and reducing pain. Consider it a battery charger for your cells.
About the Frequencies
Low Frequencies (1-10 Hz) are excellent for pain relief, muscle relaxation and anti-inflammatory effects.
Intermediate Frequencies (11-15 Hz) continue to produce and anti-inflammatory effect while further improving blood and lymph flow through vasodilation and thus reduce swelling.
High Frequencies (16-25 Hz) promote bone healing, recovery from accidents, burns and acute illnesses while also increasing cellular detoxification.
PEMF therapy benefits include but are not limited to:
- Stress Management & Emotional Health
- Relaxation & Improved Sleep
- Enhanced Performance & Recovery
- Improved Circulation
- Heightened Brain Function & Focus
- Immune System Support
- Bone & Joint Health
- Raised Energy Levels & Metabolism
