Far Infrared Sauna

Having a far infrared heat sauna at Jing Healthcare is a great way to finish off your acupuncture treatment or  colon hydrotherapy session. It is used to warm and detox the body after colon hydrotherapy, which can be draining to your system due to the large amount of flushing that takes place.

Far infrared heat has been used for its healing properties by the Chinese for hundreds of years. It is what is omitted when moxa is burnt to increase Yang, circulating Qi and remove pain in the body. Far infrared occurs naturally as the non-harmful component of the sun’s radiation. Unlike harmful UV radiation, infrared heat is a safe wavelength that you commonly experience as the gentle, penetrating warmth in a sunny room on a cold day.

The far infrared rays penetrate into the skin, dissolving toxins while vitalising cells and metabolism. The sauna can also heat up to whatever temperature you desire. Far infrared saunas generate two to three times more sweat than a hot air steam sauna. Via the sweat glands of the body’s largest organ, the skin, we are able to powerfully eliminate many toxins. Doing a sauna regularly is a great method of detoxification, has a visible cleansing effect on the skin and soothes muscle tension.

These saunas are well tolerated by those who do not usually tolerate high-temperature conventional saunas. Far infrared saunas can aid in the following:

  • Eliminate harmful toxins
  • Burn calories (600 -1000 calories in a 20–30 minute session)
  • Increase extensibility of collagen tissue and benefit most skin conditions including acne, eczema and psoriasis
  • Decrease joint stiffness and pain
  • Relieve muscle spasm
  • Increase blood flow and produce pain relief
  • Improve the immune system

Say goodbye to pain, reduce stress, increase your body’s ability to detoxify, eliminate unwanted weight stores and improve your complexion and skin condition.
