1. MUSCLE PAIN RELIEF - 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.

2.  IMMUNE SYSTEM BOOST - The deep heating will raise your core body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. Fever is the body's way of strengthening and accelerating the immune response.

3. DETOXIFICATION - Sauna sweating can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of accumulated highly toxic metals as well as alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acids and other organic and inorganic compounds.

4. IMPROVES APPEARANCE OF CELLULITE - The far infrared heat warms three times as deep as conventional saunas. By increasing the heart rate and localizing blood circulation there is a reversal of the accumulation of liquids in the fat cells which will reduce the appearance of cellulite.

5.  STRESS AND FATIGUE REDUCTION - There is evidence that using a sauna will affect the autonomic nervous system and allow the parasympathetic state to allow your body to heal.

6. IMPROVES SKIN - The sweat you achieve in the sauna after only a few minutes will carry off deeply embedded impurities and dead skin cells. You'll see improved tone, elasticity, texture and fresh color. Increased blood circulation has been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, lesions and cuts. Open wounds heal more quickly thus reducing scaring.

 7. WEIGHT LOSS AND INCREASED METABOLISM - According to the American Medical Association regular use of a sauna imparts a similar boost on the cardiovascular system to running. As you relax in the gentle infrared heat, your body is hard at work producing sweat, pumping blood and burning calories

8. BALANCES MOOD -  People have expressed feelings of elation and invigoration when getting out of a sauna. This improves mood and decreases anxiety and depression.

9 REDUCES RISK OF ALZHEIMERS - See research study: https://www.google.com/url?q=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v%3Dio6dblyRCGw%26list%3DWL%26index%3D326&source=gmail&ust=1578915018764000&usg=AFQjCNFQWaQXD_3W1Ar6lei5Uk8Zv3dUUQ

The two largest studies of this review which prospectively followed 2315 men in Finland over 20.7 years of frequent sauna bathing for cardiovascular disease-related outcomes used multivariate analysis and calculated hazard ratios (HR) adjusting for confounding factors such as blood pressure, resting heart rate, smoking status, Type 2 diabetes, previous myocardial infarction, LDL levels, and alcohol consumption. Their findings included a 66% risk reduction [HR 0.34 (0.16–0.71), p = 0.004] of dementia, a 65% risk reduction [HR 0.35 (0.14–0.90), p = 0.03] of Alzheimer's disease, a 63% risk reduction [HR 0.37 (0.18–0.75), p = 0.005] of sudden cardiac death, and a 40% risk reduction [HR 0.60 (0.46–0.80), p < 0.001] of all-cause mortality [38, 39].

 I charge $40 for up to 45 minutes in the infrared sauna. If you take a yoga class, than I charge  $25.

Sauna sessions can be scheduled on both weekdays and weekends from 2pm - 7pm . Please email me at amritari.mindhealthyoga@gmail.com

My sauna is large and fits 3 people. It looks exactly like the infrared sauna pictured here.




MAYO CLINIC - By Brent A. Bauer, M.D.

An infrared sauna is a type of sauna that uses light to create heat. This type of sauna is sometimes called a far-infrared sauna — "far" describes where the infrared waves fall on the light spectrum. 

A traditional sauna uses heat to warm the air, which in turn warms your body. An infrared sauna heats your body directly without warming the air around you.

The appeal of saunas in general is that they cause reactions similar to those elicited by moderate exercise, such as vigorous sweating and increased heart rate. 

An infrared sauna produces these results at lower temperatures than does a regular sauna, which makes it accessible to people who can't tolerate the heat of a conventional sauna. 

Several studies have looked at using infrared saunas in the treatment of chronic health problems, such as high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, dementia and Alzheimer's disease, headache, type 2 diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis, and found some evidence of benefit.
