Infrared Heat: The Sweat Detox

The newest form of detoxification in the spa industry are infrared saunas. Infrared heat raises core temperatures from inside the body, which rids toxins through the pores by way of an intense sweat.

In traditional saunas, sweat omitted from the body consists of 95 to 97 percent water, while in an infrared sauna, only 80 to 85 percent of sweat is water and the remaining 15 to 20 percent are toxins. Therefore, infrared saunas are considered more effective at flushing unnecessary impurities. Infrared saunas are also more comfortable, only getting 100 to 150 degrees Fahrenheit, where the average sauna gets up to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.

The infrared heat technology originated in Japan and has now been used in the United States for over 50 years – it is used to heat the incubators of newborn babies, so professionals can trust that it is safe.

Clients have reported a reduction in wrinkles and crow's feet and an improved overall skin tone after use of infrared heat therapy. It also helps lower blood pressure, reduces chronic pain, improves circulation, and boosts mood.

An infrared sauna is a solid investment for any spa owner to have for clients who want glowing, radiant skin.
