One way to understand the benefits of the sauna is to look at how the body boosts the immune system in response to viruses or bacterial invasions. Heating up, just as in a fever, can promote healing processes such as increased blood flow, lymphatic activation, muscle relaxation, and endorphin release. Our sauna features near, mid, and far infrared wavelengths, which target specific body layers for a profound experience.
Research has shown reflexology strengthens your body's ability to respond to any stressors and bring itself to balance. Take a look at the following case studies that highlight how important reflexology can be in one's life.
Ionized Alkaline Water
Lifespans are longest in areas of the world where drinking water has two special properties: high pH (alkalinity) and negative charge (ionization).
Alternative Health Research
Many alternative health practices have not earned the respect they deserve, and there is a strangely simple explanation for part of the problem. When it comes to processes or hands on treatments, there is an inherent difficulty in creating a control group. For example, while it is easy to provide a placebo medication, it is not really possible to administer a placebo sauna or a placebo reflexology. Nonetheless, there are many convincing studies supporting the use of these therapies. Most of these have looked at symptom improvement and compared outcomes of the group receiving the treatment with those who did not.
