Massage in Wanaka has a brand new Far Infrared sauna. Providing the very latest in technology as it has greatly improved over the few last years. We have researched various types of saunas and have chosen one that has been clinically tested and FDA approved and is of the highest quality.
Also called radiant heat. This heat is produced by infrared rays, a form of energy that is just below visible light on the spectrum. This technology was actually developed by NASA and is exclusive to the sauna in our premise. NASA has tested that the far infrared heat would be the ideal way to maintain cardiovascular conditioning in American astronauts during long space flights. The radiant heat penetrates to a depth of 35-40mm, soothing and relieving muscles and tissues. The benefits are many including deep cleanse and detoxification, reduction of muscular stress, tension and physical fatigue, givingcomfort and relaxation of an aching body, improved body conditioning and wellbeing .It also burns calories (600 in 30 mins. ) You will also notice improved skin tone and softness .
The sweat produced in a far infrared sauna is estimated to contain about 20% toxicity compared to 2-3% from other saunas or from exercise. Evidence of this can sometimes be seen as colour on the towel. Read the story about how the 911 rescue workers were detoxified using far infrared Sauna. A towel from one man showed blue sweat which was analyzed and found to contain manganese from the steel dust he had inhaled.
The toxins go straight out from the lymphatic system through the skin. Therefore the liver and kidneys are not stressed as they are with chelation therapies. It makes it very safe for detoxification.
It is also excellent used in conjunction with massage. Helping to relax and warm the muscles ,for a more effective deeper release during massage. (We love it , your muscles just melt when we start to work on you. ) The Far infared sauna also helps with muscle recovery after sports especially wonderful after a days skiing or a marathon.
Also fantastic for weight loss, ( You burn 600 calories in half an hour. ) stopping smoking, ( 3 days in a row and almost all of the nicotin is out of your system . ) Making it easier to give up. If you feel sick or a cold coming on it is also a great way to sweat it out and boost the immune system.
