Far infrared is a section of the natural band of light that is not visible to the human eye, but can be felt as heat. Unlike the high heat produced in traditional saunas, far infrared heat is able to penetrate the body to a depth of 1.5 to 2 inches. This stimulates the body's cellular detoxification process more effectively and at a lower temperature.
High daily stress levels put constant strain on the body's nervous system and can contribute to chronic disease. The far infrared sauna helps to reduce physical stress by boosting circulation and triggering the production of endorphins, the "feel good" hormones.
Enhanced Immune Health
Each far infrared sauna session causes a brief, beneficial increase in body temperature, which improves immune system health by boosting production of infection-fighting white blood cells and killer T-cells.
Improved Cardiovascular Conditioning
Medical research shows that regular use of a far infrared sauna may be as effective for cardiovascular conditioning as exercise. As the body heats up, it cools itself by sending blood from the internal organs to the extremities and skin, thus increasing the heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate.
Weight & Cellulite Control
Toxins can play a significant role in preventing us from losing wright as well as gaining weight. Those wishing to lose weight should note that the cardiovascular effect from a single sauna session burns as many as 600 calories. The sauna is also quite effective at dealing with cellulite when combined with massage therapy and nutrition.
By dilating blood vessels, infrared heat increases blood circulation to injured areas, speeding up the healing process and relieving pain.
contraindications: hemopheliacs and pregnant or nursing should not use the sauna. People with advanced symptomatic heart disease, unstable angina, or severe adrenal suppression should use the sauna under close medical supervision.
Detox Foot Bath
The Aqua-Chi Model 5400 FB Hydro-stimulation Spa is a state of the art, bio-energy charger. The system is designed to operate with water because water is the basis of all biological functions. Water is also the medium through which all tasks in the body are performed. The body is made up of millions of smaller components, called cells, which are responsible for all the different biological processes that occur. Even though there are many different types of cells in the body, they all have a number of things in common. They all need water for hydration AND energy to perform their designated tasks. With the depletion of either water OR energy, the cells are deprived and poor health can result. The system works through the medium of water by making available extra energy that the living cell can utilize. There are many water sources around the world that are reported as having invigorating effects on the body when bathed in. These waters are naturally charged and give up some of their charge to the body on contact. This is the fundamental process utilized by the Aqua Chi; the transference of energy through water
