Infrared Sauna – Burn calories and detox through sweating (7 times more than a traditional sauna) We have all heard and seen the countless ads for diet pills that claim to burn calories without any need for exercising. It turns out that there is a scientifically proven method that can achieve such magic. That method is the infrared sauna! The proven, and healthy solution to losing some of those extra pounds. Increased Metabolism Far-infrared energy deeply penetrates the skin and warms the muscles and joints. The radiation penetrates deep into the body and gets our hearts to beat faster which in turn burns calories thus raising the metabolism. Calories Burned If a 150-lb person usually burns around 300 calories jogging or swimming for 30 minutes, the infrared sauna promises to help get rid of 400-600 calories in one 30 minute session.

The key, it turns out, is our body’s circulatory system.
The human body needs sun light to live. Sun light breaks down into a seven color spectrum. Color therapy (chromotherapy) works on various energy points to help balance your body via full spectrum of visible lights, where each color is addressing a distinct need. What is Chromotherapy: Chromotherapy is the science of using colors to adjust body vibrations to frequencies that result in health and harmony.
