I have had multiple sclerosis for the past 14 years and am delighted with the benefits I receive from my infrared sauna.
At first I was afraid that the heat wouldn’t be good for my condition but infrared is not like a regular sauna – it doesn’t feel uncomfortably hot just warm. My energy levels are much higher, my mood is more bouyant, and my symptoms are greatly reduced. In addition, my skin is incredibly smooth, the pain in my joints is practically gone, and I feel much cleaner – inside and out. Also, I don’t get depressed anymore in the winter. I love sitting in the warmth in the middle of winter and I put the ‘bright light’ on.
I do drink loads when I’m in there – about 30-40 minutes at a time a few times a week – and I take magnesium before I go in as its recommended in the book ‘Detoxify or Die’.
SaunaTech saunas have chromo therapy
lights installed inside each sauna. The reading light has the red, orange and yellow
spectrums which will help sooth both mind and body. Below are the benefits of chromo therapy.
Chromo therapy, sometimes called colour therapy or colour logy, is an alternative medicine method. It is claimed that a therapist trained in chromo therapy can use and light to balance energy wherever our bodies are lacking, be it physical, emotional, spiritual, or mental. Chromo therapists claim a scientific basis for their practice, proposing that colours bring about emotional reactions in people. A standard method of diagnosis is the use of Luscher`s colour test, developed by Dr. Max Luscher in the early 1900s. When performing chromo therapy, colour and light is applied to specific areas and acupoints on the body. Because colours get associated with both positive and negative effects
in colour therapy, specific colours and accurate amounts of colour are deemed to be critical in healing. Some of the tools used for applying colours are gemstones candles, wands, prisms, coloured fabrics,
bath treatments, and coloured glasses or lenses. Therapeutic colour can be administered in a number of ways, but is often combined with hydrotherapy and aromatherapy in an attempt to heighten the therapeutic effect.
MEANING AND USE OF COLOURS
Health is contingent upon balancing not only our physical needs, but our emotional, mental
and spiritual needs as well. In India, a group of healers known as Ayurvedic healers associate colours with the seven main chakras, which are spiritual centres in our bodies located along the spine. Chakras store and distribute energy and information. Much of the information on chakras comes from the yogic teachings in India. According to these teachings, each chakra is also associated with one of the four primary elements: earth, air, fire, water. There are seven of these chakras and each is associated with a particular organ or system in the body. Each chakra has a dominant colour, but these colours may become imbalanced. If this happens it can cause disease and other physical ramifications. By introducing the appropriate colour, these maladies
can be fixed. Following, a description of three dominant chakras, their corresponding colour, location and physical/emotional association.
First Chakra: Located at the base of the spine
Is used to energise and stimulate. Affects the heart by increasing pulse rate, and the muscles by increasing their tension. Influences vitality, and increases body temperature. Can be used to develop excitement and sensuality.
Second Chakra: pelvis area
Being a colour mixed from red and yellow, according to chromo therapists orange stands for kind-heartedness and warm-heartedness of an individual. Orange would symbolise the rising sun, and make us alert and cheerful. It is believed to affect both our bodies and our minds. Astonishing results are ascribed to the use of the colour orange to treat mental illness, depressions, discontent and pessimism. Orange could be applied for the treatment of arteriosclerosis, sclerenecephaly, cardio sclerosis, loss of appetite, anaemia, anorexia and digestive system discomforts (e.g., flatulence, cramps). A person with an excess of orange could express confusion, tiredness, and pessimism.
Third Chakra: solar plexus – just above the belly button
Increases neuromuscular tone. Purifies blood, helps digestion, and has a cleansing effect. Strongly stimulates happiness, brings on a sense of security, as well as a strong feeling of well-being.
Fourth Chakra: heart
Regulates the pituitary gland, fights depression, bulimia, and other psychosomatic conditions affecting the gastric system. It is useful in calming the nervous system, fights irritability, insomnia and can be used to assist in recovery from nervous breakdowns.
Fifth Chakra: throat
Calming. Stimulates the parasympathetic system, reduces blood pressure and calms both breathing and heart-rate. It has anti-inflammatory and muscle relaxing effects. Fights both physical and mental tension and is used to assist in relaxation.
Sixth Chakra: lower part of the forehead
Indigo is believed to be a cooling colour that develops psychic perception and intuition. It is applied in health treatments for eyes, ears, nose, and mental problems. It is also used in attempts to treat addiction. Indigo is also ascribed to have sedative and calming effects. Some chromo therapists say indigo may be useful in controlling bleeding, and treating abscesses. Sometimes the colour violet also gets associated with this chakra, depending upon the practitioner’s training.
Seventh Chakra: top of the head
Practitioners name violet to be the colour of the emotions and it is considered to be a meditative colour. In colour therapy and in particular in colour acupuncture, violet is applied for treating the lymphatic system and the spleen. Violet is also used in attempts to soothe organs, relax muscles, and calm the nervous system. A person with an excess of this colour could express fanaticism and domination. The colour white or magenta can also be associated with this chakra, depending upon the practitioner’s training.

See all the Health benefits associated with a far infrared sauna
Toxins such as sodium, alcohol, nicotine, carcinogenic heavy metals (cadmium, lead, zinc, nickel) and mercury accumulate in the body during modern daily life. Infrared heat therapy stimulates the sweat glands to cleanse and detoxify your skin.
Infrared heat therapy loosens muscles and relaxes the body. Many massage therapists use infrared heat prior to massage to provide a much more thorough and effective treatment.
Infrared heat increases blood circulation, expels dirt chemicals and removes dead cells from surface of skin. All of these benefits lead to a softer and firmer complexion. Can be used to reduce wrinkles associated with aging.
A 20-30 minute FIR sauna session burns up to 500 calories, similar to a 5km run. Infrared saunas are perfect for those who do not have time for regular exercise or suffer from personal injuries that inhibit rigorous activity.
FAR Infrared heat relieves pain by expanding blood vessels and increasing circulation. Better circulation allows more oxygen to reach the injured areas of the body and helps reduce pain and speed up the healing process. Many people use FIR heat as a successful treatment for arthritis, muscle spasms and rheumatism.
Improve Immune System:
During a fever, the body heats up to eliminate viruses and attack foreign agents. Subsequently, the body wards off invading organisms much more easily because the immune system is activated consistently by the “artificial fever.” Recent studies also show that colds and flu-like illnesses are reduced dramatically if treated in the early stages with FIR heat therapy.

The skin is our largest organ. It works very hard to prevent toxins from penetrating deep into our bodies, filtering out bad chemicals which are deposited in the top layer of the skin for later shedding.
The condition of your skin is an indication of your health. If your skin looks unhealthy, it usually means that your body is also unhealthy.
There are many things that affect the overall health of your skin including the environment we live in, the food we eat, the amount of sleep we get, the amount of stress we live with, the amount of alcohol we drink, and whether or not we smoke.
Pre-mature aging of your skin can also be caused by drugs, prescription medications, sun exposure, and dehydration. Anti aging skin care products that have an alcohol or petroleum base or contain fragrances can also have a detrimental effect on your skin. Older skin has less elasticity and can’t produce elastic proteins like collagen and elastin, the way younger skin does. This results in the formation of wrinkles and adds to the aging effect.
A far infrared sauna is one of the most beneficial tools for improving your skin. The deep penetrating far infrared rays improves blood flow, lowers blood pressure, kills unwanted organisms, opens blocked pores, eliminates dead skin cells, and removes rancid oils and bacteria – all without any pain.
Acne, eczema and psoriasis are signs that your body systems are not in proper balance. Far infrared saunas improve circulation, providing oxygen rich blood to damaged areas to heal and remove toxins. They help restore balance and prevent future breakouts. The result is immaculately clean, glowing skin with improved tone, elasticity, texture and color.
According to the Clayton’s Electrotherapy (9th Edition) far infrared radiation is the only antidote to excessive ultraviolet radiation, healing skin that has been damaged by over exposure to the sun. Using far infrared saunas on a regular basis not only revives your skin, it gives it a healthy, youthful glow.
If you already have damaged skin, it is not too late. Your marvelous body can regenerate itself and given the right encouragement, you can reverse the damage.

Saunas enhance circulation and oxygenate the tissues. Energy production increases, facilitating healing. Heating the tissues speeds up metabolism. Cells are more able to eliminate toxins. Nasal passages open and the sinuses drain.

Fever therapy helps infections heal more quickly. Tumors tolerate heat poorly; weaker than normal cells, raising the temperature hastens their death.
The skin is a major eliminative organ. The skin is inactive in most people. Many do not sweat. Synthetic or tight clothing that does not breathe damages the skin. Sedentary living and sun damage also inactivate the skin. Hundreds of chemicals affect the skin, from lotions and soaps to deodorants. Cleaning solvents, detergent residues and chemicals from bathing water also affect the skin, Repeated use of the sauna slowly restores skin elimination. Toxic chemicals and metals are removed faster than with other methods. It is a daily habit that pays many dividends.
Steam baths, sweat lodges, exercise and hot tubs are other means of sweating. Steam and sweat lodges are often hotter, and more difficult to tolerate. Far–infrared saunas remain below 110[degrees]. Exercise vigorous enough to produce copious sweating is too exhausting for all but the most fit. Hot tubs are good up to a point. Sweating is less than in the sauna and one absorbs chemicals from the water.
Types of Saunas
The traditional sauna is electric, wood or gas-fired. Preheating to 150-200[degrees] degrees is required for copious sweating. The heat may be difficult to tolerate, especially for those who are ill.
Far–infrared heats the body, the air remaining cool. Sweating begins quickly and the experience is pleasant. Preheating is unnecessary which saves electricity. Most far–infrared saunas employ ceramic elements to generate gentle heat. A less costly option is to use infrared bulbs.
According to research, far–infrared is more cleansing than traditional saunas. The deep penetration of the infrared energy allows the cells to eliminate better.
Burn Calories in a 30 Minute Sauna Tech Sauna Session call
“Saunas are an important aid to weight loss and thyroid repair because as you lose weight, fat tissue releases stored toxins such as PCBs and pesticides.”
-Dr. Mark Hyman, author of NY Times best selling book “Ultrametabolism” and Sunlight Saunas customer.
Studies have shown a 30 minute far infrared sauna session can burn up to 200-600 calories . As the body works to cool itself while using a far infrared sauna, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. Blood flow during whole body hyperthermia is reported to rise from a normal 5-7 quarts per minute to as much as 13 quarts per minute. Journal of the American Medical Association, August 1981
