Add an Ice Bath Session
iCool Ice Pod®
Cold is your friend and breathing is the key. Used together, they can radically improve your life.
The iCool ice bath system technology enables health and fitness enthusiasts to accurately combine the scientific benefits of cold water immersion (CWI) to go deep into the body’s untapped recovery potential.
Before you dive into the world of ice baths:
Your body needs to learn to adapt to the cold. It’s a science that begins and ends with the breath. At first, your cardiovascular system may react to the ice-cold water by causing you to breathe erratically. As you slowly increase your tolerance to cold showers, you will be able to exert control over your breath’s rhythm, and thus, increase the benefits of cold water immersion (CWI).
- Greater resiliency,
- Better self control in highly stressful situations,
- Helps manage panic attacks,
- Boosts metabolism & immune system,
- Helps with sleep and,
- You no longer feel as cold in colder environments
About our Infrared Sauna
When it comes to the best quality infrared sauna there are really only 2 brands to consider: The Jacuzzi®Clearlight® infrared saunas or Sunlighten (a slightly less priced company). When we first looked into getting a sauna we were amazed how many cheap options there are but after consulting one of our medical advisors, we decided to make the safes choice for our clients and get one worth over $10,000. Many of the other cheap brands have dangerous EMF levels. Our Clearlight® Jacuzzi® infrared sauna produces the same infrared heat produced by the sun. Infrared heat is required for all living things for optimum health. The radiant heat from an infrared sauna surrounds you and penetrates deeply into your joints, muscles and tissues increasing oxygen flow and circulation. Using our Clearlight® Jacuzzi® Premier Sauna that has been upgraded to a full spectrum infrared sauna helps to remove impurities from your cells, specifically the cells inside our fat where our body stores waste and harmful toxins such as cholesterol and heavy metals. An infrared sauna session will help improve your overall wellness when done properly.
Benefits of Infrared Saunas
Infrared heat is all around us and you have felt it from sources like fire, heated sand on the beach and the sun (without the harmful ultraviolet waves that the sun gives off). Just as visible light has a range of wavelengths (running from red to violet), so does infrared light: longer wavelength infrared waves are thermal, while short or near infrared waves are not hot at all, in fact, you cannot even feel them. It is the far infrared energy that is most beneficial, penetrating the skin and increasing circulation to help rid the body of harmful toxins. Near and mid infrared enhance the benefits of far infrared.
Fequiently Asked Questions
Can I have a sauna session if I'm pregnant?
No. The National Institute Of Health suggests that pregnant women limit their use of any heat-based therapies. Increasing the body’s temperature above 100 degrees has been known to potentially increase rates of fetal complications. For this reason, it is best to avoid infrared sauna therapy during pregnancy.
Are Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) energy waves dangerous?
As a functional wellness company, your health and safety are our number one focus. Our suana uses True Wave™ far infrared and full spectrum infrared heaters and are the most effective and safest infrared heaters available. Jacuzzi Infrared Sauna® models are the only infrared sauna that cancels out both EMF and ELF. Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) are energy waves with frequencies below 300 hertz or cycles per second. Extremely low frequency (ELF) are the electric fields with frequencies from 3 to 30 hertz.
Our sauna offers the lowest and safest EMF and ELF levels of any infrared sauna on the market, bar-none. The EMF levels will be mostly below 1mg when tested directly on the heater itself. Where you are sitting in the sauna, the EMF levels are virtually 0mg. The ELF levels in our Jacuzzi Infrared Sauna™ are 3 – 5 times below the threshold of concern. Most other infrared saunas on the market are over 20 times above the threshold of concern.
Why is infrared heat better than traditional saunas?
Traditional saunas raise the temperature of the air to a very high level within the chamber to warm the body. When you are sitting in a traditional sauna, you are sitting in a hot room; 80°C -105°C degrees. Some people have difficulty breathing in this extremely warm air.Far infrared saunas work differently. Instead of heating the air within the enclosure, far infrared saunas heat the body directly. In your Clearlight Far Infrared Sauna only about 20% of the heat goes to heat the air and the other 80% directly heats your body. The result is deeper tissue penetration.
The radiant heat can penetrate deep below the skin producing a gentle warming inside the body. The warming effect on your body stimulates your cardiovascular system, your immune system and your lymphatic system. Your body’s response to that is to sweat. In the far infrared sauna, the body perspires and receives all of the healthy benefits but avoids the harmful and extremely hot air of a traditional steam sauna.
Infrared saunas leave you feeling invigorated, not depleted like conventional saunas.
What is infrared therapy?
What exactly is Infrared heat? We have all experienced the following: It’s a partly cloudy day and you are outside and it feels cool. All of a sudden the clouds move out of the way of the sun and a rush of warmth comes over you. This warm feeling is the far infrared band of sunlight warming your body.
The far infrared band is part of the sun’s invisible spectrum of light. This band of light has the ability to penetrate our skin and warm our body directly. The far infrared heat produced by our Clearlight Sauna is totally safe as there are none of the harmful rays of sunlight produced by our heaters, just natural healing heat. In fact, this heat is so safe that is it used in hospitals to keep newborns warm.
Infrared rays are the healthiest, penetrate into your skin deeply and they dissolve harmful substances accumulated in your body. The Infrared Rays vitalize your cells and metabolism.
In an infrared sauna, the quality of the infrared heat is the most important factor in determining the benefits you will receive from that sauna. By combining carbon fibers and a ceramic compound in one heater, we have brought together the best of both worlds to give you the highest quality infrared heat imaginable.
