Clearlight®Infrared Sauna with Red Light Therapy
You may have heard about the positive effects of infrared saunas and wondered why they are different from traditional saunas to promote health. Unlike traditional steam saunas, infrared saunas use infrared light, which we experience as heat – the naturally occurring invisible part of the sun’s spectrum. Infrared Sauna therapy targets the body’s tissues at a cellular level, instead of heating the air like traditional saunas. This allows the sauna to run at a lower temperature with more benefits. In this way it raises the body’s core temperature and promotes natural healing mechanisms, which restore and re-balance health in a variety of ways.
At Connecticut Natural Medicine we also have the added benefit of Red Light Therapy added to all of your sauna sessions. Clearlight® Red Light Therapy provides the most proven and effective therapeutic wavelengths to the entire body reducing oxidative stress and stimulating the production of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate).
This process, known as Photobiomodulation, has been extensively researched for many years and adds measurable energy to the mitochondria of your cells. The Clearlight® Red Light Therapy Tower can be used during your sauna session. Light therapy has been tested across hundreds of peer-reviewed clinical trials with positive results. The benefits of Red Light Therapy include:
Reduction of Chronic and Acute Pain
Skin Rejuvenation (boost collagen & elastin production)
Some of the targeted benefits of Infrared Saunas include:
The build-up of toxic substances can lead to a host of common illnesses. Detoxification through sweating is a safe and natural way to heal & stay healthy. Detoxing strengthens the immune system and helps the body’s biochemical processes function efficiently, even promoting better digestion of the nutrients in our food. Far infrared saunas result in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level where toxins reside. Ridding the body of toxins through a natural sauna detox may help relieve symptoms, prevent future illness and increase overall health and vitality.
Relaxation and stress relief: Infrared is a gentle, soothing and therapeutic heat that promotes relaxation and improved sleep, overall reducing the impact of stress. Studies show that high levels of stress negatively affect the number of neurons, memory, the grey and white matter composition, and overall brain function. chronic stress affects every physiological system in the body, from the immune system, to hormones and digestive health. Coupling mindful meditation while in the sauna promotes stress reduction and cognitive health.
Blood pressure stability: Infrared saunas have been proven to increase heart rate and blood flow, lower blood pressure and help circulation.
Pain Relief: FAR sauna heat penetrates tissues, joints, and muscles to reduce injury, recovery time, relieve minor aches and pains, in addition to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia. Combined with RLT, chronic pain is greatly improved with just 1 session but cumulative effects are seen as well.
Improved circulation: Heating the muscles with infrared rays produces an increase in blood flow similar to that seen during exercise. Regular infrared sauna use can significantly stimulate blood flow up to twice the normal rate.
Lastly, there is a third light therapy included in our sauna. It is called Chromotherapy. Chromotherapy is the science of utilizing wavelengths of color light frequencies to improve health benefits of the body and mind.
