Detox from a SA Sauna is 7 to 10 times greater than a conventional sauna because it operates more effectively at temperatures 60 to 80 degrees lower than conventional saunas.

Far-Infrared Technologies that Harness the Sun, SA Sauna.

In a conventional sauna the average person sweats out 3% toxins and 97% water. In an SA Sauna, the average person sweats out 20% toxins and 80% water!


Detox can be used as a tool to help relieve symptoms AND as a preventative tool to increase overall health, vitality, and resistance to disease.

Detox is a widely used treatment and concept in alternative medicine. The leading detoxification principle is that illnesses can be caused by the build-up of toxic substances – or toxins – in the body.

Why Detoxify?

Detoxification can be helpful for people suffering from diseases and conditions, including:

  • Allergies
  • Anxiety
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Chronic infections
  • Depression
  • Headaches
  • Heart disease
  • High cholesterol
  • Low blood sugar levels
  • Digestive disorders
  • Mental illness
  • Obesity

Detoxification therapy is also useful for those suffering from immune system problems that including chronic fatigue syndrome, environmental illness/multiple chemical sensitivity, and fibromyalgia.

The United States Centres for Disease Control estimate that over 80% of all illnesses have environmental and lifestyle causes.

Therefore, detoxification has also become a prominent treatment as people have become more aware of environmental pollution. For example, it is estimated that one in every four Americans suffers from some level of heavy metal poisoning, including mercury, lead, cadmium and aluminium.

Toxins in the body also include chemical pollutants such as pesticides, DDT, PCB (polychlorinated biphenyls) and food additives. Drugs and alcohol also have toxic effects in the body. Far infrared sauna benefits are tremendous. Do you frequently feel the effects of chronic fatigue syndrome or Fibromyalgia? Treatment and therapy for these symptoms can incorporate Far Infrared saunas and their powerful effects.

Cellular purification

Dr. Toshiko Yamazaki, MD owns an Far infrared therapy clinic in Japan where she has done extensive research on the uses of Far Infrared Therapy or Infrared Light Therapy. In her book, “The Science of far infrared Therapies,” she explains that one of the reasons Far Infrared Therapy has beneficial results in a variety of illnesses is the ability of Far infrared waves to remove toxins with mercury detoxification, which is often at the core of many health problems. Since humans are bio-accumulators, numerous toxins that disturb natural body healing and cannot be removed immediately after entry are stored in our bodies and prevent future natural body healing.

Burn Calories in a 30 Minute SA Sauna Session
“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 “Ultra metabolism” 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

SA Saunas far infrared heat therapy raises core body temperature causing passive cardiovascular conditioning. Your body’s natural response to far infrared heat therapy is to increase circulation and sweat. Check out the results with a heart rate monitor and you will be amazed!

SA Saunas heaters were used in a clinical study with the University of Missouri Kansas City in 2005 and were shown to lower blood pressure from a 30 minute sauna session three times a week.

Be Heart Smart with a SA FAR Infrared Sauna

FAR infrared heaters were used in a clinical study with the University of Missouri Kansas City in 2005 and were shown to lower blood pressure from a 30 minute sauna session three times a week.

Repeated far infrared sauna treatment improves impaired blood vessel functions in patients with high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. This suggests a preventative role for sauna use for arteriosclerosis.

Far Infrared Heat Therapy for Pain Relief

New clinical research on pain offers evidence to establish a novel class of pain “heat responsive pain” or HRP, which encompasses several common pain conditions that can be treated with the use of heat therapy. Researchers studying HRP have observed remarkable therapeutic benefits by using continuous low level heat therapy for treating lower back, upper body and menstrual pain, all conditions that fall under the new HRP classification.

“For centuries healthcare providers have used topical heat to relieve minor aches and pains, but today we are just beginning to understand the full range of therapeutic benefits that heat offers,” said pain expert Peter Vicente, Ph.D., past president of the American Pain Society and Clinical Health Psychologist, Riverhills Healthcare, Cincinnati, OH. “Through new clinical research, we have found that heat activates complex neurological, vascular and metabolic mechanisms to mediate the transmission of pain signals and effectively provide relief for a variety of pain conditions.”

Rheumatoid Arthritis
A case study reported in Sweden involved a 70 year-old man who had rheumatoid arthritis secondary to acute rheumatic fever. He had reached his toxic limit of gold injections and his erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) was still 125. After using a far infrared sauna for less than five months, his ESR was down to 11. A rheumatologist worked with a 14 year-old Swedish girl who had difficulty walking downstairs due to knee pain from the age of eight. This therapist told her mother the girl would be in a wheelchair within two years if she did not begin gold corticosteroid therapy. After three far infrared sauna treatments, she began to become more agile and subsequently took up folk dancing without the aid of conventional approaches. A clinical study in Japan reported a successful solution for seven out of seven cases of rheumatoid arthritis treated with whole body far infrared therapy.


Heating of muscles with far infrared produces an increased blood flow level similar to that seen during exercise. Body temperature elevation also produces an increase in blood flow.

Infrared heat assists in resolution of inflammatory infiltrates, edema and exudates. The increased peripheral circulation provides the transport needed to help evacuate the edema which can help end inflammation, decrease pain and help speed healing.

Infrared light is part of the sun’s invisible spectrum. One of far infrared light’s characteristics is the ability to easily penetrate human tissue. When this happens, it creates a natural resonance, which has many beneficial properties. Remember the last time you were sunbathing with sunscreen? Were you still hot? Of course you were because the sunscreen only stops the ultraviolet (UV) light from hitting your skin. The far infrared heat penetrates your skin, giving you that wonderful natural warmth.
