Catch Some Rays This Summer


With Far-Infrared Therapy, you can Detox and Energize from the Inside Out!

As our world has become more industrialized, it has also become more toxic. We now live in an environment that bombards us with pollutants and toxins on a daily basis. When toxins build up too much in fat cells, our bodies have no way of processing these toxins. We cannot metabolize them or expel them naturally. When this happens there are a host of possible symptoms which may occur such as:

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Irritability

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Coughing

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Sneezing

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Fuzzy Thinking

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Fatigue

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Joint Pain

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Headache

A growing body of reports and research are verifying how this toxic overload is disrupting our body’s healthy function. Further research is showing that there is a common link between toxicity and chronic diseases, obesity and the increase in cancers.

Back in 2012, the World Health Organization stated, in a report on exposure to toxic endocrine disrupting chemicals, that:

''Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals have the capacity to interfere with tissue and organ development and function, and therefore they may alter susceptibility to different types of diseases throughout life. This is a global threat that needs to be resolved.''

Pretty scary stuff … BUT, there IS good news. The most important thing is that your body has the ability to detoxify and repair itself. "Sweating it out" is one of your body’s most natural ways to eliminate toxins as well as many other health and beauty benefits. Your skin is the largest organ of your body and a major organ for eliminating toxins that have built up in your fat cells over time. Repeated use of a sweat inducing sauna treatment helps to reduce your toxic load significantly.

A far infrared body wrap helps your body to release a number of toxins including heavy metals like mercury and lead, and also help you to rid your body of environmental toxins.

What is Far Infrared?

Far infrared (FIR) is part of the natural light spectrum but is not visible to the naked eye. More than half of the sun's power output is in the form of infrared light but, don't confuse infrared light/heat with ultraviolet light (UV) which causes sunburn and damage to the skin. Infrared is within the same frequency as your own body heat. Our bodies naturally produce this type of heat to keep ourselves warm. Infrared warms us without warming the air around us and penetrates into the body rather than just heating the skin.

With a FIR body wrap, the deep penetration of infrared rays (up to 2 inches into body tissue) a deep heating occurs in your muscles and internal organs. This is the unique SUPER power of infrared light therapy.

The heat vibrates your water molecules to the extent that they break down, resulting in a health release of toxins through sweat. Your body also responds to this heat by increasing your heart rate and your blood flow. The rush of blood flow helps with the release of toxins and other waste, brings oxygenation and nutrients to damaged areas of your body, while helping to reduce pain causing inflammation. This increased blood flow helps to improve the functioning of all your major organs.

BUT WAIT ….. The perks don’t stop there! Here are some other benefits:

Relaxation - A FIR body wrap promoted relaxation by helping you to balance your body’s level of cortisol, your body’s primary stress hormone. The heat generated by the sauna will also help to relax muscles and relieve tension throughout the body, allowing you to relax and de-stress.

Pain Relief - If you suffer from muscle aches or joint pain, infrared saunas can relieve this form of inflammation by increasing circulation and relaxing your muscles. For people suffering from chronic fatigue, arthritis, injuries, chronic pain in back and joints, elevated blood pressure, sleep disorders and other chronic conditions, FIR is a safe and natural alternative that can help to provide relief from some of these symptoms.

Weight Loss - The heat generated by an infrared sauna will cause your core temperature to increase, which can also lead to an increased heart rate — the same increase in heart rate that you experience when exercising. When your body is required to work harder in order to lower your core temperature or keep up with an increased heart rate, your body will burn more calories, resulting in weight loss. An article, titled, Effect of Sweating, in the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that a 30-minute infrared sauna session could burn roughly 600 calories.

Improved Circulation - As the heat from infrared saunas increases your core body temperature, your circulation will increase along with it. Consistent infrared body wraps can stimulate blood flow, improve muscle recovery, and decrease pain and inflammation after intense exercise. The infrared body wrap benefits to your health are significant, especially when it comes to your cardiovascular system. A Japanese study showed that individuals who used a far infrared sauna for 15 minutes a day experienced a significant drop in blood pressure as opposed to a control group who spent that time in a “room temperature” environment.

Skin Purification - FIR technology can help to purify your skin by eliminating toxins from your pores and increasing circulation, resulting in clearer, softer, and healthier looking skin.


Here are some reasons to maintain your FIR body wrap ritual during the summer:

FIR is Therapeutic All Year Long - Far Infrared body wraps help achieve detoxification, weight loss, skin rejuvenation, relaxation and pain relief. The FIR wrap is a gentle way to achieve these benefits all year round.

BUT IT'S SUMMER..........

Far infrared offers all the health benefits of heat therapy at lower, more comfortable temperatures - A FIR body wrap operates optimally at lower temperatures than a traditional sauna. This means you can still enjoy a comfortable and beneficial sauna experience without the extreme heat. You can also control the temperature and the session time.

FIR Burns Calories - Using an infrared sauna is a great way to burn extra calories and rejuvenate your skin. Enhance the outcomes with a balanced diet and exercise for a summer glow. Infrared heat raises your core body temperature. Raising your core temperature will increase your heart rate and in turn elicit a deep, detoxifying sweat and calorie burn.

A deeper sweat will work at the cellular level to help remove impurities, leaving your skin feeling revitalized and fresh.

FIR Helps You to De-Stress - Too many kids running around this summer? Swimming Lessons? Day Camps? Babysitting? Driving them around all day? McDonald’s meals in the car? Do yourself a favor and take time out to unwind. We promise you’ll be more mindful and relaxed, ready to enjoy your valuable summer-time.

How am I "Wrapped"?

When you come in for your FIR therapy, you are wrapped it is a blanket that uses electricity to radiate far infrared energy. Our fabulous esthetician Deborah (or another trained and experienced Sylvana clinician) will prepare you for your wrap. When you’re ready, you will lie on a comfortable bed with the FIR blanket wrapped around you. Your head will be outside of the blanket. The blanket has a control panel which allows either you or the clinician to control the temperature and the time

What Else?

As with any sauna experience, you'll be sweating while you use an infrared blanket. That means it's important to stay hydrated, so you should drink a couple of glasses of water before every session.

Many Sylvana patients report a decrease in pain, depression, anger (go figure?), and an increase in mental clarity, energy, metabolism and an increase in an overall sense of wellbeing.
