Inspired by the sun, this effective natural therapy works to relax the muscles, detox the body, and purify the skin.
Om.life Wellness Spa is working hard every day to keep you as safe as possible during this time. While our facility was initially built to provide the cleanest space possible, we've implemented additional safety steps in our sanitation procedures. Below are a few pieces of information as Infrared Sauna Therapy relates to COVID-19 and general wellness, provided by scientific journals and field experts.
Scientific literature shows that SAR-CoV-2 is destroyed by heat and “temperatures tolerable to humans. All mammals use fever to deal with infection and heat has been used throughout human history in the form of hot springs, saunas, hammers, steam-rooms, sweat-lodges, steam inhalations, hot mud and poultices to prevent and treat respiratory infections and enhance health and wellbeing.”
The effect that infrared saunas provide raise your body’s core temperature and mimic a fever, stimulating the production of white blood cells and inducing elimination of toxins.
Treatments curated to heat the body have also shown outstanding psychological and mental wellness benefits, such as relaxation and improved sleep.
HOW IT WORKS
Our sauna delivers infrared therapies that reach every part of your body with constant gentle heat to expel toxins. In an infrared sauna, it is about more than just sweating - it's a quiet place to relax, reflect, and focus on you.
Every minute counts when you are in an infrared sauna. Which means that you get to experience the health benefits faster and the treatments are more effective than those found using a traditional sauna. Some of the clinically backed therapeutic effects of using an infrared sauna are reducing stress, relieving pain, shrinking belly fat, purifying the skin, improve skin tone, boosting the immune system, reducing wrinkles, stimulating collagen production, and increasing energy. Infrared saunas also work to remove harmful impurities, waste, toxins, and heavy metals from fat cells that are found deep within the body.
OUR LARGE INFRARED SAUNA
Our newest, larger infrared sauna is the perfect place to detox in style, whether alone or with friends and family. In this sauna:
You can enjoy it with up to 2 additional people, or on your own.
COLOR LIGHT THERAPY
Our infrared sauna features LED color light therapy, also known as chromotherapy. Color light therapy is a system of alternative medicine that uses projected colored light to treat emotional and mental imbalances.
Our mPulse infrared sauna uses Solocarbon 3-in-1 smart technology that has been proven effective and allows you to completely customize your session. With an LCD touch-screen control panel, customizable heaters, and preset health programs, you'll be able to receive maximum benefits in less time. Solocarbon 3-in-1 full spectrum technology delivers near, mid, and far-infrared wavelengths at a consistent output. Near-infrared is the shortest infrared wavelength and promotes cellular health, skin renewal, and tissue growth. When this wavelength is pulsed, it can travel deeper into the body's tissues. Mid-infrared is a longer wavelength, able to penetrate the body's soft tissues and speed up the natural healing process. Far infrared, the longest wavelength, reaches the deepest parts of the body where toxins are stored. Between these three wavelengths, you will be able to target your health needs effectively.
