Pamper and renew with a visit to our infrared sauna

Saunas have been used for years as a tool for relaxation and detoxification. At The Spa & Laser Center at Southside Dermatology, men and women can receive outstanding health benefits by visiting our infrared sauna. Infrared light penetrates human tissue, warming from the inside out and prompting not only relaxation and detoxification but also producing a number of anti-aging benefits as well.

Infrared versus traditional sauna treatment

In the traditional sauna, the air is heated, sometimes up to or over 180 degrees. Infrared saunas make use of infrared waves of energy. This type of energy heats the body, not the air. When absorbed into the deep tissues of the body, temperature is gently elevated and major bodily functions are activated. Direct benefits of infrared sauna treatments include pain relief, reduced blood pressure, increased oxygen supply to the tissues, increased circulation, and a reduction in muscle tension. There are, however, additional reasons why men and women in the Jacksonville area may choose to visit our infrared sauna.

Detoxifying effects

When tested in a laboratory, sweat from traditional sauna treatment was shown to contain 3 percent toxins. Sweat produced in an infrared sauna was shown to contain approximately 17 percent toxins. The heating of deep tissues seems to push toxins to the surface where they are more easily released. The release of toxins from the body promotes health and wellness.

Calorie burn

Many people commit hours a day to healthy living that includes diet and exercise. While infrared sauna treatment is not intended to take the place of these lifestyle habits, this form of therapy is the perfect complement for the person who wants to burn extra calories. In some studies, it has been shown that a thirty-minute infrared sauna session can burn hundreds of calories.

We have wonderful ways to treat our bodies with relaxing, effective technology. A visit to our infrared sauna will benefit your body all day long. Contact us at 904-474-3777 to schedule your visit.
