A.1 Brief

All growth depends on sunlight, yet 40% of the ultraviolet and high-energy rays of the sun are harmful to the human body. The remaining 60% of the sun’s energy, which is comprised of infrared rays, is beneficial for the human body.

Our infrared sauna uses these invisible (5.6-15μm) infrared rays to increase cell tissue resonance, accelerate blood circulation, and improve organic functions. Infrared sauna therapy is becoming increasingly popular and accepted by the medical profession, with more studies now supporting the science behind this exciting new technology. An infrared sauna has been shown to increase blood circulation, which can help relieve pain and improve wound healing and recov-ery. It has also been known to increase metabolic rates and help the body burn calories as it works to sweat. This aids fat burning, improves cardiac fitness, strengthens the heart, helps eliminate toxins, and improves cellulite and general skin tone.

A 30-minute session in an infrared sauna could burn the same calories as a six-mile run. The quality stereo systems in our saunas also reduce stress and aid relaxation through the use of sound therapy.

Chromotherapy, also called color therapy, is the use of color and light to gently bring about homeostasis. Color and light is applied to specific areas and accupoints on the body.

History of Color and Light Healing

Color and light have been used for healing since the beginning of recorded time. Ancient Egyptians built solarium-type rooms with colored panes of glass. The sun would shine through the glass and flood the patient with color. Some people use colored silk cloths which are placed on the body and then flooded with sunlight. Early color and light healers in the modern world used colored gels and sheets of glass to apply light to the body. Others used color infused water and color meditations to send healing rays to the person.

Today, there are many practitioners who use color and light in interesting ways. Some therapists have a box with a mechanism that flickers light into the eyes. They report success in speeding the recovery of stroke victims and those persons who experience chronic depression.

Some healers recommend wearing eyeglasses with colored lenses. Practitioners of Feng bring color into their homes and workplaces for optimum balance of energy.

Why It Works:

The earth, the oceans, in fact every living thing, is dependent upon light for its very existence. A recent scientific study disclosed that each cell in the body emits light. We live in a sea of energy and our bodies are composed of energy.

Color works through and in us, in every nerve, cell, gland and muscle. It shines in our auras and radiates upon us from the sun. Color is an active power, exerting a tremendous influence on our consciousness, soul, and spirit.

Within our body, our organs, muscles, cells, and nerves all have a level of vibration. When our body becomes out of balance, disease occurs. Each color has its own frequency and vibration. Through extensive research, we know that color and light will help bring our physical and emotional systems into balance.
