Evolution of an age old healing practice – how infrared saunas are battling cancer in addition to improving health and well-being. If you are like most people, hearing the word sauna triggers a very particular image in our minds. An image perhaps of a small, scorching room lined with wooden benches centered around a pile of very hot rocks and filled with strangers in towels sweating profusely. Most may consider this as too invasive and perhaps unhygienic. On the contrary, sauna is a healing tradition that dates back more than 2,000 years. Immersing oneself in a high-temperature environment, despite sweaty strangers, is recognized as one of the most effective ways to cleanse the body and eliminate toxins through our skin. This detoxifying ability of saunas is just the beginning to lead a vibrant and disease-free life. Enter the evolution of sauna – the infrared sauna.
