"What? Where are you putting a "sauna" at Kasia?"
The Headquarters Kasia office is now gone, and the sauna is IN! I've followed this modality of detoxification for quite some time, in particular, many of the Functional Medicine Doc's I recieve education from. These professionalsrun their clients through their Infrared Sauna with their protocols.
Dr. Mark Hyman's newest book, Ultrametabolism, addresses the use of an infrared sauna as a means of practicing active relaxation to reduce stress and lose weight.
Dr. Michelle Robin, DC "In my personal experience, the sauna dramatically improves body chemistry leading to overall enhanced health and well being.
Why did Kasia Organic Salon bring in this modality?
The health benefits of infrared therapy are now indisputable. Detoxification, skin rejuve and clearing, relaxation, cardiovascular benefits, pain relief and weight loss have all been either clinically studied or experienced by users as quoted in Healthy Living Magazine. We want you to be able to enjoy the experience of Infrared.
Far Infrared is a form of light that we feel as heat. The sun has infrared (IR) and ultraviolet (UV).
UV rays are the bad and IR is the good
Far Infrared penetrates into your body 3 times deeper than steams, dry saunas.
Traditional saunas remove about 3% toxin in your sweat, Infrared allows around 17% toxins to be released in your sweat.
The infrared sauna is completely safe and produces the same rays that you feel from the sun without the harmful ultraviolet rays.
The radiant heat surrounds you as it penetrates deeply into your joints, muscles and tissues, this helps increase circulation and speed oxygen flow. Infrared helps to remove impurities from your cells, specifically the cells inside our fat where the body stores waste and harmful toxins such as heavy metals and cholesterol.
The only way to remove toxins from the fat storage sites is to mobilize the toxic fat. Heat stress (infrared sauna) is an effective method of removing fat-stored toxins from the body.
Infrared sauna also helps you relax and keep your cortisol levels low. When stressed cortisol levels deposit extra calories to the midsection.
Skin is the largest organ in the body and plays a significant part in the detox process.
· Clogged pores (unplugged of cosmetics, un-excelled skin texture and tone)
· Poor skin tone (restored to a more youthful level)
· Acne (three to four treatments may open pores that have been nonfunctioning for years, forcing out clogging cosmetics, and loosening dry outer skin)
· Teenage skin problems (clearing acne and blackheads)
· Body odor (improved functioning of the skin especially body odor, induced by occupational exposure to odorous chemicals)
· Eczema and Psoriasis (respond well)
· Dandruff (increased blood flow through the scalp)
